What makes Coco and Seed Planters so special? Coco and Seed planters are mostly known as mason jar planters. Making gardening at home easy, fun, and perfect for beginners using just a pint-size or quart-size mason jar. But there are a few issues that you can run into with hydroponic gardening and mason jars with no outside protection.
One one hand, in the summer or winter, the temperatures by a window can get extreme and glass absorbs those temps. The nutrient solution can get too hot, the roots are exposed, and then algae can form where the plant is fighting for food. It is most definitely do-able but maintenance is rather high. You’ll have to clean the jar and gently clean the roots often.
A pro of these new EcoPlanters is that they have double measures of protection from temperatures and sunlight. The roots will never be exposed to the sun and the container will be cool to the touch.
So what else makes this indoor garden planter cool? It uses a wicking system. Why is this good? You can separate the lower compartment (the net pot from the plant-based container) and fill it up with water or plant food. It both acts as a drainage method and keeps the growing medium damp but not overwatered. How cool is that?!
One more point that is neat. The growing medium, seeds and plant food are all prepped, filled, packed and sealed in house for each container. It’s a fully assembled kit just for you. Perfect gift for the plant lover in your life! And that's why you won't see these kits anywhere else. Hand selected and assembled in Arizona.
