• What parts of the plant can I eat?
    On a general basis, both the leaves and stems of a plant are edible. In edible flowers the flowers can of course be eaten, but if a herb starts to produce flowers, they are edible too.
  • When can I start eating the herbs and salads?
    The information on when to start consuming herbs and salads (Harvesting) is indicated on each Plant Capsule™ package.
  • How long do the herbs keep after harvesting?
    You can eat your salads and herbs for about a week after you have harvested them, if they are kept in an airtight environment in a refrigerator. Flowers should be used during the same day. You can also dry or freeze both your herbs and edible flowers for later use.
  • Where can I dispose of the Plantui Plant Capsules™
    Plantui Plant Capsules™ are made of Lava stone (Basalt) wool, which does not decompose. You can dispose of them in your normal household garbage. If you prefer recycling, you can mix the content of used plant capsules with soil. They improve the physical quality of soil.
  • Why is lava stone wool used as s substrate?
    The Plantui Plant Capsules ™ are made of lava stone wool in order to ensure optimal water and oxygen levels for the plants. The rockwool capsule supports the plants when their roots grow to the nutrient solution.
  • My dog ate a plant capsule. What should I do?
    You should treat your dog as if they have eaten soil or peat.
  • Are the nutrients organic?
    Our nutrient mix consist only of the essential nutrients plants need (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc, boron, copper and molybdenum). These nutrients come from the nature: either from the air or through mining. In hydroponics, such as Plantui Smart Garden, all of the essential nutrients are added into water. Organic fertilizers cannot be used in hydroponic gardening, because the organic fertilizers need special soil-bound bacteria to break down the organic compounds into inorganic substances plants can consume. There’s no soil-bound bacteria in pure hydroponic gardening, like the Plantui Smart Garden. That’s why we give the nutrients to the plants in the form they can directly use.
  • What do Plantui Nutrients™ contain?
    Plantui nutrients are made exclusively of natural ingredients. Our nutrient mix consist only of the essential nutrients plants need (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc, boron, copper and molybdenum).
  • Can I use the same nutrient for all plants?
    Yes, you can use the Plantui nutrient with all Plantui plants. We have carefully chosen the nutrient to fit the needs of all the plants that we have in our selection.
  • What amount of Plantui Nutrients™ should be added?
    The measuring ratio is always 1 Plantui spoonfuls Plantui nutrients to 1 liter of water.
  • Do nutrients always have to be added in the water?
    Yes, Plantui nutrients should be always added when adding water. Nutrients are necessary for the plants‘ growth process.
  • Can other types of nutrients be used?
    No, the nutrients for the Plantui Smart Garden™ are specifically designed for the intelligent irrigation system of this hydroponic device. Other forms of nutrients require soil in order to function optimally, and they can be detrimental to the water pump in the Plantui Smart Garden™. The use of other nutrients in Plantui Smart Garden™ affects the 2-year warranty of the device. The warranty is only valid if you use Plantui nutrients as we have described in the instructions.
  • When to add water?
    When you begin the germination process, you must add 3 liters of water and 3 Plantui spoonfuls of plant nutrients. This amound will last for a few weeks (depending on the plant type). The Light Unit™ will blink blue (as a sign of warning) and thus signal that it is time to add more water and nutrients. Later you will have to add water about once a week. When you add water, always remember to mix Plantui nutrients (1 spoonful of nutrients to 1 liter of water) with it.
  • How much should I add water when the lights turn blue?
    You can add 2 liters of water with 2 spoonfuls of Plantui nutrients mixed to it.
  • My dog drank the water with nutrients. What should I do?
    The nutrients are of course not intended for humans or animals, but for plants. However, nothing will happen if your dog has been drinking from the water tank. The nutrients mixed with water are not dangerous, as all the ingredients of the nutrients are natural. Due to the added nutrients, the water becomes salty, similar to salt water.
  • Does the level of calcium in water affect the plants and the device?
    The level of calcium in water is usually not a problem for the Plantui Smart Garden™: the plants will take the right amount of calcium according to their needs, and the pump of the device will not be affected since the mechanism for the water circulation prevents calcium residues. However, very high calcium levels in the tap water can partly block the pump or make visible traces on the plastic parts. Plantui 6 Smart Garden™ has an auto descaling mode to solve that problem. Add 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of citric acid with 3 liters of warm water (max 55 °C) in the water bowl of an empty Plantui 6 Smart Garden. Hold your hand on the top of the device for 15 secs until the lights turn blue. The pump will operate for 2,5 min. If necessary, leave it to soak for a few hours and restart the pump. Then wash the parts (max 55 °C).
