maintenance

#1

So, you have successfully grown one or more plants and would like to start fresh with a new plant pod.

We recommend cleaning the product before inserting a new pod. Just pour out the water from the unit and rinse the water reservoir carefully with warm (not too hot) water. You may add a little amount of detergent as well. Rinse again thoroughly and dry it gently with a paper towel.

Also, don’t forget to clean the cavities as they are re-usable!

All of our countertop gardens are machine-washable, but do not use temperature higher than 60°C / 140°F. Please remove the lamp before putting the product into dishwasher. If possible, don’t put the U-shaped lids into the washing machine and make sure to remove the wicks before as well.

If you are having problems with opening the lid of the garden, there are simple instructions for this here.

The water tank needs to be cleaned time after time and to do that you need to remove the lid, so you can thoroughly wash the tank box, float and lid itself.

See photos and follow instructions to remove the lid.

First you need to take out the float. Make sure there is no water in the tank and turn it upside down, and protect the float from falling out!

When you have taken the float out, place your hand in the float hole, holding the longer side of the garden towards you. Gently add more pressure to lift the lid.

It takes some strength to remove the lid. The lid itself is indeed strong, but make sure to add strength smoothly, so you won’t cause any harm to your lid.

Hi!
What happens if I don’t remove the wicks before washing?
Thanks?
