What is the best way to refill water?

To start, thoroughly mix nutrients with water in a separate jug. The recommended ratio is 1 spoon (provided with the nutrient jar) to 1 litre of water. This ensures that your plants receive the essential nutrients they need to flourish.

Watering Instructions for EcoKitchen

  1. Pour the nutrient-water mixture into the EcoKitchen through the small hole in the basin cover. This allows the plants to absorb the nutrients effectively.
  2. Refill the EcoKitchen to the same ratio when the water runs out, ensuring a consistent supply of nutrients for your plants.

Factors Affecting Water and Nutrient Consumption

  • Plant Size and Type: Water consumption varies depending on the size and type of plant you are growing.
  • Environmental Factors: Factors such as temperature, humidity, and airflow in the area can impact water and nutrient uptake.
  • Nutrient Concentration: Be mindful of the nutrient solution concentration. Increased water consumption may lead to a higher concentration of nutrients, affecting plant health.
  • Plant-Specific Needs: Different plants have varying nutrient requirements. For example, leafy greens typically require less nutrients compared to herb plants.

Preventing Algae Growth

  • Light Exposure: When the nutrient solution is exposed to light, it can promote algae growth, visible as a green coloring on the growth medium. To prevent this, start with a low nutrient concentration and gradually increase it as the plant grows. Alternatively, cover the growth medium to block out light.
