Garden Jar & Eco Planter FAQ

Specs

Weight: 1lb

How long does it take to grow?

Basil seeds take 7-14 days to sprout, and will be ready to start harvesting in 2+ months. Continuous harvesting will encourage a bushy plant and greater yield.

How long will it last?

A basil plant will continue to grow with sufficient nutrients and light; however, after 3-6 months it will develop a woody stem and the leaves will become a bit bitter.

How much sun will it need?

Herbs require at least 6 hours of direct light daily, and should be put in an unobstructed window that faces south, west or east (southwest is the best option). During winter months—or if you don’t have an unobstructed window—you can supplement with a grow light. Learn more about our lighting recommendations here.

Can I put it outside?

Garden Jars are designed for indoor use, but can be put outside. Be mindful that the planter does not have a drain hole, and if the reservoir floods it may drown the roots. Bring your Garden Jar inside if temps dip below 55⁰ or above 80⁰.

How is it reusable?

The stainless steel net pot and recycled glass grow medium can both be reused—simply rinse with hot water. Add new seeds and use soil or coco pith to help seeds germinate. Use a water soluble fertilizer and follow its instructions.

How do passive hydroponics work?

Passive hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil. A combination of an inert porous growing medium and a wick transports water and nutrients to the plant roots via capillary action. The nutrient solution (water and fertilizer) are held in a reservoir and taken up as needed, providing the perfect balance of water to oxygen.

Do you ship internationally?

Due to seed import restrictions we cannot ship our Garden Jars to most countries outside the U.S. and Canada.

What is the return policy?

Our goal is to make sure every product we sell is of the highest quality. If you have a problem with your purchase and want to initiate a return, please email us at support@modsprout.com

International Orders

Shipping to different countries around the world can be difficult at best (import tariffs, customs, restrictions…), but we will do our best to fulfill all orders. Many countries also have seed and plant restrictions, and as a result we cannot send seeds with products outside of the US and Canada.
