ZeroSoil Mini Indoor Garden Review and #Giveaway

        Usually by now I've started preparing seedlings for my summer gardening, however things have been a bit different this year.  This polar vortex has destroyed any thought of getting started early gardening here in Michigan!  The weather has just been too unpredictable and with packing to move we have been afraid to plant too much early on thus adding to our load.  Still, that doesn't change the fact that I need to get started for this Summer's crops.

ZeroSoil Gardens
        I love growing huge gardens full of some really great fruit and vegetables.  Its my way of ensuring I can provide for my family not only during the summer months but through the winter as well!  It has always interested me to discover different ways to start and grow the same beautiful plants indoors.  With moving to a large property in the country, I have big plans for the edibles this year!

        A while back an awesome gadget caught my eye and I just had to have one.  The ZeroSoil Mini Indoor Garden is "the latest in smart water control technology and advanced self-watering planter and hydroponic techniques."  For growers of all levels, this is going to work in whichever way you may need.  If you don't have a green thumb but would love even the smallest house plant, this will help you get yourself started!
     
        Using a nutrient rich organic soil-less planting mix, this garden helps make it easy to add seeds or bulbs of any kind.  This awesome gadget monitors your plants water level using low battery and low water indicators.  This way if you are inexperienced with plant life, you don't have to worry about over watering or knowing how much fertilizer to add.  You can easily have a tabletop garden others are jealous of.

        Each ZeroSoil Mini Indoor Garden starter kit includes everything you need - Basin body, Water control system, Flower pot (x2), Planter covers (x2), Nutrient rich organic grow medium (x2 8 oz bags), and AAA batteries (x2).  Once it arrives there is very little set up and little to no maintenance.  Every once in a while the indicators will let you know when you need to refill the water reservoir or change the batteries.  Once your plant is grown all you need to do then is replant and start a new plant!

        Honestly one of my favorite things about this is that I don't have to worry about dirt!   My cat just loves to get into the dirt of my potted indoor plants so this is a major plus for me!  I feel like this worked extremely well especially for my hard to grow lettuce seeds as you can see from the pictures.

Cost/Available to purchase:  $49.95 Sale ($69.95 Reg) ZeroSoil Mini Indoor Garden 
Recommendation:  You know this is a bit expensive for a garden gadget this small but definitely not when it comes to quality.  I don't think the purchase price is all that outrageous for all that it does plus once you have the system the replacement growing medium is only $5!

Giveaway: ZeroSoil is going to give one of A Lucky Ladybug's very lucky readers a ZeroSoil Mini Indoor Garden of their own! Starting 4/22 for Earth Day!

  4. I could use the drying rack and the book. I live in Florida so the rack would save me electricity,. and the book would give me more information.

  16. I have always wanted to get a hydroponic growing setup since I heard of them some 30 years ago or so. I never have had one, but I still want one for growing kitchen herbs, tomatoes and other small edible plants inside. We have 2 somewhat large windows that face the south side of the house that would be a great spot to set one up. This one is pretty good price since our local places have them starting at about $100 or so. Thanks for the info.

  17. I would love this to grow herbs and even my cats catnip! I had a catnip plant inside for awhile but I have lost count on how many times it was knocked onto the floor with MOIST dirt EVERYWHERE! I have stained the carpet in some places and I hate it. So I put it outside and ants where eating it! I just couldnt win...I gave the plant to my mom in which with this past winter being so cold it has killed it. UGH...I would love to start another one but dont want the hassle of dirt and all like before. Not sure how this would do with weeds such as catnip and some herbs but im willing to give it a try if I win!

  18. I love that it doesn't take soil, it monitors you water levels, and can be used inside.

  19. I like the water level monitor. I'm trying to teach the kids how much to water the plants.

  20. I don't have any luck in growing plants from seeds whatsoever. This kit would be of much help. I like its compact design and the water control system.

  21. I would like to start growing my own herbs with the indoor gardener.

  22. I'm confused by the question but I would love to give this a try. I always start my seeds indoors and make a huge mess. This is an attractive way to get things going vs the big black trays that take up so much space and leave a mess.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh I would so love to have this for growing herbs in the kitchen! So much simpler than trying to keep them from taking over the vegetable beds. :)

  25. This is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen! I have just gotten too sick to be able to even maintain a small outdoor herb garden so this would be perfect for me!

    ReplyDelete
  26. We have a super short growing season so this would be awesome to get more plants started. I would also love to have an herb garden in the kitchen that doesn't take a ton of space.

  36. I would love to have an indoor mini garden because my daughters could learn all about planting and growing plants. It would be fun, educational, and they would love the end result as well!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My poor herbs took a dive just recently. It's because we've started composting and the fruit flies occasionally get in the kitchen. Then they roost in the soil for the herbs. :( I would love to have a soil-less option to keep my herbs healthy and strong. That's the best thing of going without soil - less pests! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am an avid gardener and this type of growing fascinates me! I think it would be both fun and educational to experience this type of growing medium. I would love to see it work and experience growing successfully in the winter.

  39. I would love this so I could grow some herbs and have the best indoor garden ever!

  41. Hi! I ordered the zerosoil mini garden after seeing your review and just got it this week. I have a question: Did your instructions tell you what to do with the grey foam material and 8 white tubes? The instructions that came with mine did not tell me at all what to do with them. And I didn't realize they came in the box until after I followed the instructions which basically said "Take out pot. Pour planting material in pot".

    So I had to first search in the internet for your review to see pictures of how you set them up and then do some post-setup fixing of the garden.

    Just curious - and putting this as an FYI for others who might want to buy it. It's great, but the instructions are a bit incomplete!

    1. I put the grey foam at the bottom and stuck the tubes through the holes as the water is supposed to travel up the tubes to water the plant and moisten the dirt. This has worked amazing for me and my plants which are in it growing like crazy!
