Welcome back to Show and Tell, where Peter Salib unboxes sweet tech for every area of your life. In this episode, Salib unearths the Hamama Grow Kit, a sustainable and easy way to garden indoors. Many of us resort to buying our greens at the market, but this can get expensive. You may try to grow your own food but green thumbs don’t come easily. Being a plant parent is challenging; different foods need specific amounts of light, types of soil and time to grow. The Hamama Grow Kit is a simple and nutritious solution, even for the “notorious plant killer.”
Growing tiny superfood
The Hamama Grow Kit is for growing microgreens, which are baby plants. So, if you like kale, its microgreen alternative is baby kale. Why would you want to grow microgreens? These superfoods are 40 times denser in nutrients than the adult version. They’re perfect to throw onto a salad or a sandwich. Besides keeping you healthy, they are also simple to grow. They don’t need a lot of light and will be done growing in 4-6 days. So, you don’t have to worry about fertilizing, repotting or pruning. And finally, these greens give you peace of mind. They are non-GMO seeds that don’t use soil, pesticides or fertilizers.
How it works
When your Hamama kit shows up on your doorstep, you’ll find a starter kit with three quilts. The little blankets have seeds inside of them. Put the quilt into the tray with water. Submerge it for 10 seconds, and then leave it. After the allotted time, eat your greens, compost the sustainable quilt and get ready to “plant” another seed quilt. The kit comes in a monthly delivery, where you get three seed quilts. And you get to customize your seeds every month online, choosing from 36 quilts.
