Why opt for a Hydroponic Indoor Growing System?
Hydroponics refers to the growing of plants using a water culture method rather than soil culture. Utilising this method means that the nutrients are provided for the plant and are carried directly to its roots, eliminating its need to waste energy searching for and extracting nutrients from soil. As such, plants that are cultivated in a hydroponic system grow approximately 30% faster than those grown in soil  and ensure maximum yield. Indeed, when plants receive their basic needs without expending any energy, it means they can concentrate on simply growing. Arguably the most efficient way of growing plants, using a hydroponic system is also far less messy, which is particularly beneficial when cultivating in your home. After all, no-one wants to plant seeds in soil, re-pot and fertilise on their kitchen counter! And, because there is no need for the roots of the plants to spread out in search of nutrients with a hydroponic growing system, they can be grown much closer together. Again, this is ideal for an indoor setting as it is a sensational space saving option. Indeed, there’s no need for large pots and drainage trays spread out all over the house.
A hydroponic system can use as much as 95% less water than traditional soil-based growing methods . This is because the system is enclosed, so the water used in the growing process is not exposed to the outside world, which reduces evaporation. This makes for more efficient growth but is also a more environmentally friendly option. In addition, hydroponic plants will be happier and healthier as they are protected from the outside elements, soil-borne diseases, and pests. In fact, all components that influence healthy plant growth, including light, temperature, humidity, nutrients, and water can be easily controlled and maintained using this method.
The Nutrimist Otto Indoor Herb Garden is a hydroponic growing system that houses 8 plants & exposes them to specialised LED lights for optimum health & growth
The Nutrimist Otto has a full spectrum 40-Watt LED lighting system that consists of 28 white lights, 16 red lights and 4 blue lights. This is the optimal combination of light to ensure that the plants reach their vegetative stage quickly and flower abundantly. The red light is required for photosynthesis and inhibits stem elongation. It works best during the flowering stage and the higher the intensity, the higher the yield. Conversely, blue light works better during the vegetative state, promoting root development and strong, stocky plant growth. It also stimulates stomatal opening for breathing, leaf expansion and increases photoperiodic flowering.
Ergonomically designed, the Nutrimist Otto Indoor Garden is incredibly easy to assemble and includes a detailed instruction manual for ease of use. Your seeds are simply placed into the seed sponges, inserted into the basket, and then placed into the lid of the tank. The bottom of the basket is submerged in nutrient rich water that is contained within the tank reservoir, and there are 3 different settings as follows:
- 14h/Normal: The LED lights in the roof of the bamboo frame will illuminate and remain lit for 14 hours. The lights will subsequently go out and remain off for 10 hours. This cycle will continue whilst the ‘standard mode’ is selected
- 12h/Enjoy: When switching to this mode, the LED light intensity is automatically reduced. The light works in a 12h on/off cycle
- 16h/Grow: High intensity LED light that works on a 16 hour on and 8 hour off cycle
Simply wait for the loud beep and for the ‘standby’ light to illuminate once the device has been plugged in and then select your desired mode. After the indoor garden has been operating for several days, the water level will fall; remember to keep topping up!
Complete with a gorgeous, grained bamboo frame, the Nutrmist Otto indoor Garden will complement the style in any home beautifully! In addition, its ABS plastic tank is both durable and practical.
The Benefits of Indoor Plants/Gardens
Enjoy Year-Round Cultivation & Yield Your Own Veggies/Herbs Regardless of the Season
Having an indoor garden means you can grow herbs, vegetables, and plants effortlessly all year round. This is particularly beneficial during cold, winter months when the days are short and there is not much greenery outside. Harvest fresh and tasty aromatic herbs and enjoy all-natural ingredients with no pesticides or GMOs. Growing your own veggies and herbs is also a great activity to enjoy with the children who love to watch their seeds grow and will enjoy learning more about nature.
You and Your Family will Breathe Easy
Research has shown that houseplants can remove up to 87 per cent of air toxins in 24 hours . Indeed, plants absorb carbon dioxide to produce food and energy in order to grow. They then release more oxygen into the atmosphere. Generating this oxygen rich air makes plants perfectly suited to an indoor setting. In addition, LED growing lights used in indoor gardens further boost the plant’s air cleaning powers by accelerating photosynthesis and, thus, releasing more oxygen into the home.
Plants have a Calming Effect, Lower Blood Pressure & Improve Concentration
Studies have shown that plants have a soothing, calming effect on the sympathetic (autonomic) nervous system (SNS), resulting in a lower heart rate and decreased blood pressure. Not only does this alleviate stress, aid relaxation and boost mood, it improves concentration and productivity by up to 15% ! In addition, it can reduce anxiety levels and improve our quality of sleep. Simply seeing greenery and nature can have a tranquil effect, whilst cultivating an indoor garden can be a refuge from the outside world. Caring for living things is also exceptionally rewarding and is purported to reduce loneliness and depression.
Improved Humidity Results in Healthier, Youthful Looking Skin
Plants increase humidity in the air through a process called evapotranspiration. Water travels up the roots of the plant, through the stems, and into the leaves (transpiration), where it's evaporated into the air via pores on the leaves, called stomata. Improved humidity in the home will increase the body’s ability to absorb oxygen, therefore resulting in healthier looking skin. In addition, it also reduces and prevents tiredness.
