How to Grow a Lush Plant or Garden with Ecocube

Interested in planting and growing your own flowers and herbs but don’t have a green thumb?  Plant a seed that won’t die and reap the fruits of your harvest this summer with ecocube!

We’ve all had that moment in our life where we felt hopeful and adventurous and thought, “Ya know, eating some of my own homegrown strawberries or basil would be pretty great!”  So you went to the local gardening store, Home Depot or Osh and bought some seeds.  You then ventured off into the backyard to start your secret garden, that would soon be filled with vegetables, flowers and more.

And that’s where the fantasy ended.  Maybe after you got down on your hands and knees and started to dig, you realized you low key don’t know what you’re doing and this isn’t the life for you.

Or maybe you faithfully tended to your seedlings, watered them, pulled up weeds and you still got no results. Or maybe you know all of the gardening tips and tricks in the book but you don’t have access to a backyard.

Well fret not, because all of your plant growing dreams can come true with the ecocube.  Organic seeds and soil are delivered to your doorstep ready to grow in a biodegradable alder wood cube planter.

 

How ecocube Works

First choose from a variety of different seeds to grow, from flowers to herbs to trees. We chose to grow basil and gerbera!  Each cube comes with care instructions on the packaging, that tells you how to best care for your plant.  Make sure to follow the instructions carefully and not skip over any steps.

For the basil and gerbera, simply remove the sticker covering the top of the cube, sprinkle the seeds on top of the soil and gently press the seeds below the soil surface.  Pour about 1/8th cup of water on the seeds once a day, and make sure not to over water.  Place the ecocube in a bright warm place, where the plant can receive plenty of sunshine. Continue this cycle all the way through the plant’s life.

 

 

But When Will It Grow?

Carefully caring for your ecocube plant and still not seeing any growth?  Don’t fret and stay patient! Remember that you’re dealing with a living thing, and growth and evolvement takes time 🙂

Each plant will have a different growth time, so make sure to continue caring for your plant at least 2 weeks after you pass the expected growth time.  Our basil took 1 week to sprout, and our gerbera took 3 weeks before we saw any progress.

What Next?

Once your plant is in full bloom, you have several options to work with!  Transfer your plant into a garden bed so it has more room to grow.  Or if you’re growing a tree and it needs re-potting, cover the whole biodegradable cube with soil in a pot or directly in the ground.  Make sure to read our future blog post that will show the growth of our basil and gerbera!

These ecocubes are the perfect gift to give to friends, family and co-workers.  It really is a unique gift that keeps on giving!
