Below are some tips to consider for you to get started:
Lights for photosynthesis:
Edible plants need about four to six hours of direct sunlight; the more the merrier!
Our local high-rise apartments & buildings are designed to stay cool and shaded from direct sunlight, which increases the challenge for urban farmers.
However, you can consider using artificial light to supplement the growing process: choose from our range of E2 LED Light Assembly Set that will surely suit your need. It is an ultimate solution for gardeners who do not have direct sunlight for growing plants in their premises.
More importantly, it is designed for ease of use – clamped on the table edge. The light is specially selected, tested repeatedly ensuring it works well for plants growth. It simulates our daily outdoor light that is not only suitable for growing the plant, yet it can light up your place with the least harmful effect to ourselves and loved ones as opposed to other colored lights.
At a different stage of plant growth, the plant requires a different combination of element mineral to aid their growth. The combination of the element minerals is what we used to term them fertilizers.
However, studies and researches have identified that plant generally require several elements (at least 17) along-side with air (Oxygen), water (Hydrogen & Oxygen) as well as light to enable them to grow, and most importantly grow healthily till harvest.
These essential elementary minerals for plant growth can be sub-catergoried as macro-nutrients like Nitrogen(N), Phosphorus(P), Potassium(K), Calcium(Ca), Magnesium(Mg), Sulphur(S) & Carbon(C), as well as micro-nutrients or trace elements such as Boron(B), Chlorine(Cl), Cobalt(Co), Copper(Cu), Iron(Fe), Manganese(Mn), Molydemun(Mo) and Zinc(Zn).
Growing vegetables & herbs require sunny space available with suitable environment (not scorching hot)! So how can one control them to farm edibles in an urban setting?
You do not need to fret over space limitations; with our mini urban farm kits, designed small and modular, a tablespace is all you need.
Our mini urban farm kits allow customization and expansion in accordance to your home space and your desire.

Feed them water regularly, prune and check on them periodically to ensure they grow healthily & lushly.
