What's inside

1x packet
of Pak Choy seeds

2x Netpot
holder ring

1 bottle x A (yellowish)
& 1 x B (clear) nutrients

Clay pebbles

1x Netpot

4x Sponges

Materials you will need

1x 1500 ml bottle / jar
(any clean recycled plastic bottle works!)

*if you are using a soft drink bottle, cut the top part of your bottle so that it has a flat open surface. The height of your bottle should be roughly 13cm tall.

Dark cloth

The purpose of the dark cloth is to block out the sunlight during germination stage. Seeds like to stay dark, moist and cosy before they come to live!

Growing Method

DAY 1

DAY 4

Wet the sponge thoroughly and place 3 seeds in between the slit of the germination sponge about 0.5 cm deep

Place the germination sponge in the netpot, then slide the net pot holder (ring) from the bottom of the netpot and allow it to sit on top of your bottle.

Fill the bottle with ~500ml of tap water, ensure the water is covering at least half of the sponge.

Next, cover the bottle with a dark cloth and leave it away from sunlight (blackout stage).

*You may check daily to ensure the sponge is always wet. If you find the sponge slightly dry, spray or drizzle some water to ensure it remains wet.

Remove the cloth and any ungerminated seeds. There should be at least one healthy seedling

Next, pour half a cap of nutrient A and half a cap of nutrient B into the bottle.

Ratio: 1/2 cap A + 1/2 cap B + 500ml

Place the farm kit on a sunny window sill or in a shaded area outdoor. Avoid direct sunlight for prolonged hours.

DAY 18

DAY 30

DAY 50

Ideally by now your seedling has sprouted and has grown some small leaves. Place the clay pebbles in the net pot so that it is sitting on the sponge. This is to prevent algae formation which may suffocate your plant.

You may expose the plant to direct sunlight but under a shade (avoid the rain) from now on.

You may have noticed that the water level has dropped below the netpot, it's time to replace the plant nutrients. Mix half a cap of nutrient A and half a cap of nutrient B with 500ml of water and add to the bottle. Continue to expose your plant to direct sunlight.

If all goes well, your plant should be ready for harvest!
