1. Ikea just announced a game-changing new product: a hydroponic indoor gardening kit that fits right on your kitchen counter, so even tiny apartment dwellers can grow fresh herbs and lettuce at home.
The kit, called the Krydda/Växer series, is not the first indoor hydroponic gardening kit on the market, but a spot on Ikea’s shelves could make the once niche activity accessible to a mainstream audience.
“The challenge was to make growing plants in a hydroponics system simple, so that anyone could succeed,” Helena Karlén from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences says on Ikea’s website.
7. Once the plants are fully matured, they can be harvested and eaten.
The kit will be available this April, though Ikea hasn’t said yet how much it will cost.
