The Power Plant Mini looks to be a full proof way to grow your own herbs all year round, whether you’ve never had much success with a garden, or simply don’t have room for one. All you need to do is plant your choice of seeds in the special ‘grow sponges’ and then make sure the water reservoir is filled with a mix of H20 and an included nutrient mix. The Power Plant Mini does need to be plugged in and placed near a sunny window, but after that it appears to be completely autonomous. All you have to do is sit back and wait for your crop of basil, cilantro (shudder), chives, parsley or whatever other ‘herbs’ you’d prefer to grow in the
safety comfort of your own home.
The Power Plant Mini is available on the Prepara website for a reasonable $39.95, while a 3-pack of grow sponges and a 1.6oz container of the nutrient refill are $9.95 each.
