ABOUT MODERN SPROUT

Modern Sprout was created by the two of us, two people who live and work in a tiny apartment. As avid cooks, eaters, and project planners, we decided the next logical step was to grow our own garden. Unfortunately, we have no space. (Our small Chicago apartment doesn’t have a yard).

We bought planter boxes and filled them with botanicals, then stuffed them on our balcony, in our windows, and any other places they’d soak in sunlight. Despite our enthusiastic efforts, we soon found ourselves surrounded by dry, lifeless shrubs. Our busy schedules didn’t leave us with much time or energy for checking pH levels in soil or singing to our plants. No matter how green our thumbs were, we couldn’t grow anything with our hands full.

We were desperate for a fool-proof way to cultivate healthy herbs, vegetables, and flowers, yet maintain our self-esteem. We wanted a victory garden, not planters full of defeat. After researching non-traditional options, we found hydroponics. A method of cultivation that’s clean, self-maintaining, and yields fantastic results, hydroponics immediately seemed perfect for busy people like us. But every kit we tried was expensive, difficult to set up, and more homely than homey.

We were unimpressed with our options, so we planted the seeds for Modern Sprout. Now we provide planters that are simple, stylish, and fertile with success. Just add water.

What makes this system/planter superior to other hydroponic systems?

Several other “self-watering” planters feature a wicking with soil solution. The disadvantage of this method is that the soil absorbs a lot of the water and nutrients, and therefore the plants grow slower. The other big difference is the design and quality; a lot of self-watering planters have plastic enclosures, are visibly branded with the company name, and some even use batteries. We focus on design and function. Additionally, with the exception of the hardware, we source all of our materials from local companies. Check out our video to see our partners.

What can I grow?

So many options! The planter works great for herbs (e.g. basil, rosemary, cilantro, mint, tarragon), produce (e.g. strawberries, cherry tomatoes, peppers, kale, spinach) and flowers (e.g. orchids, lavender, anthurium). Weight is not an issue if you trellis the plants. A 3-way gang valve provides the ability to control the amount of water delivered to each of the three plants, and therefore each plant’s feeding preferences can be met. Depending on plant type, you can enjoy growth for several months or even years.

What’s the assembly?

Minimum assembly is required. Nearly every element listed in “what’s included” is already in place. All you will have to do is place the planter in a sunny spot, set the timer and add water along with the included liquid organic fertilizer. Then, fill the baskets with the included growing medium and add your plants (either seed or transplant will work). Feel free to add a decorative river rock or moss to cover the top and baskets. Lastly, plug it in and watch your plants grow!

What about 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. Unfortunately, we’ve had to add on a pretty hefty shipping price tag to cover the actual cost. We wish we could offer a cheaper alternative but as of now this is the best we can do. Many countries also have restrictions in place about sending seed and plants into them. For this reason we will not be able to send seeds with international orders.
