I Tried Growing With Hydroponics At My Desk And It Went Better Than Expected
I had no idea it could be this easy!
I love to grow plants both at home and at work, but I'm not very good at keeping them alive.
I live and work in Japan, and there are a lot of different kits available here. I tried this one with a built-in LED grow lamp from a company called Gakken first:
It came with a little plastic cultivation set and an LED light, and was super easy to set up.
Next I tried this fancy hydroponic setup from a company called Foop.
The Foop machine also comes with a handy app!
One week later...
1 month later...
Onto the harvest party!!
As for the mint, the plants grew pretty large in the little LED garden...
...so I harvested a bit of it to enjoy in my tea. It was delicious!
