Divide the clay granules evenly into the four pots and fill with potting soil. Then in the middle with the fingertip prick a 2cm deep hole and add the desired seed. Then cover with soil and pour carefully.
Now put the four pots in the tub and place them in the center of the urban Chili grow cabinet / growbox.

first homegrow handling

Set the timer of the light source to 18 hours day and 6 hours night. The ventilation system for fresh and exhaust air and the indoor fan must be in permanent operation.
Now only carefully water every two days until a seedling develops. The duration required for this varies considerably from plant species to plant species and is normally specified by the seed Producer.

Continue to pour the seedling moderately every two days. Make sure that the soil in the pots in between almost dries out. This is easiest to test by Lifting: If the pots are light, they can be poured again!

right watering your plants

Due to the clay granules on the bottom of the pots is in some plants
Durch das Tongranulat am Boden der Töpfe ist bei einigen Pflanzen from a stature height of about 8in, long-term watering is possible. From this size, the roots of the plant have penetrated to the granules. Now you can add a maximum of 5 liters of water at a time. Simply pour a portion of the 5 liters into the pots, and the rest directly in the tub. Now the plants are supplied for 5 to 7 days (depending on plant size and ambient temperature). Use some mineral fertilizer to maintain the water quality. Again, the principle is important: only when the pots are light, may again be poured 5 Liters!


When you want to bring the yound plants a little closer to the light, a crate can also be used as a suspension to dry the plants. And above, the next pots can be planted again.

If a plant grows too wide, simply remove the excessive leaves and side shoots. As a positive side effect the plant concentrates thereby more on its main drives.
