Having worked with hydroponics for several years we got tired of having to settle for ugly growing containers. Sure the were functional but the price was high and the design appalling, nothing you would want to give to someone or have in your window.
Handmade in Sweden
We started from scratch to find a way to build a food safe, simple and most of all beautiful grow box. Every grow box is handmade in Sweden using locally sourced wood, and then given a finish to make it withstand water. The grow box fits four plants and measures 60cm x 14,5cm x 15cm. It's slim Scandinavian design works perfectly on your windowsill.
The grow box is water resistant and very easy to use. The handles on the side makes it easy to move around.

A super silent air pump aerates the water but it also works without a pump if you leave the roots to hang in the moist air. Easy to understand instructions in English are included with each grow box.
From seed to harvest in 5-6 weeks
You plant your seeds into a natural rooting sponge and place them into a net cup. The net cups goes into the grow box. Mother nature does the rest as long as you provide the plants with sunlight, water and nutrients. All materials used are easy to find locally for when you want to grow more, but we include everything to get you started.
Included in the package
- Scandinavian design grow box
- 4 net cups
- 4 natural rooting sponges
- Nutrient solution
- A small selection of seeds
- Air pump
- Air stone with tubing
We need more green in our lives
Hemmaodlat (Home Grown) is a non-profit organization with one simple goal, to get as many people as possible to grow some of their own food. We believe our Grow box is one step in the right direction to get people like yourself more interested in food and to understand what is required to produce it. All profits will go to further our cause and to help reshape the world a little more green.
Risks and challenges
Making one Grow box is easy, making fifty or a few hundred is a challenge. We have the knowledge, but we need help getting the right tools to scale up. You can make this possible!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
