What can I grow?
You can grow anything from leafy greens and herbs to strawberries and flowering plants. Unfortunately, growing root vegetables or trees are not compatible with vertical farming.
How much food can I grow?
You can expect 2-6 lbs of food per month after the first couple of month of growth. That equals to approximately 20 servings of fresh produce each month. This is enough for more than one serving every two days!
What are the dimensions of the AEVA?
The AEVA is 5 feet and 10 inches tall (1.77 m), 3 feet wide (0.915 m) and 9 inches deep (0.2 m).
What is the difference between AEVA and EVE?
The EVE has the same functionality as the AEVA but smaller. It is designed to fit in the tiniest of spaces, without compromising the quality and efficiency of this vertical garden. In the EVE, the main difference is that the plants are closer to the lights, the lights are dimmable, fruiting plants cannot be grown to maturity, and it is smaller than the AEVA. EVE has 12 pods versus 16 on AEVA.
The EVE is 57 inches tall (145 cm), 18 inches wide (46 cm) and 8.25 inches deep (21 cm).
How do you set up the AEVA?
To set up the AEVA, place it near an electrical outlet, plug it in, plant the seed pods that come with in your Starter Kit, fill in the water reservoir, and watch your plants grow! For a detailed step-by-step guide, you can also download our User Guide
What kind of electrical outlet do I need?
A standard 120-volt, 3-prong electrical outlet.
How much light is needed?
Grow lights are included in the cabinets and are specially designed for plant health. For our starter kit, 18 hours of light is ideal. Simply set your light timer to when you want your lights turned on and off. Bear in mind the light is quite bright and if the unit is in your living space, you may run it less than 18 hours a day.
How much electricity does it use?
The AEVA uses $4.8USD of electricity per month depending on your State (Note: This is using our 48 Watt LED-lights).
Where can I put the AEVA?
You can put the AEVA anywhere indoors! We recommend placing it somewhere it can stand out and is easy access. Bear in mind the light is quite bright and if the unit is in your living space, you may run the lights less than 18 hours a day which will affect your production. Be sure to have ea standard 110-120 V electrical outlet nearby and somewhere with neutral light and room temperature (18°-25°C).
Do I need soil?
No soil is needed; the AEVA uses grow plugs made from peat moss, an important component that releases moisture to plants as needed.
What is hydroponics?
By definition, hydroponics means "working with water." It is the method of growing plants both indoors and outdoors without soil, using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.
How long does the light stay on for?
Depending on what you are growing, the ideal light range is between 12-18 hours per day.
The AEVA will be in an open space. What about pesticides?
Growing with the AEVA means you are growing non-GMO and pesticide-free produce.
How many plants can I plant at the same time?
You can grow 16 plants at a time on the AEVA, 8 per tower. Unlike other indoor gardens, the AEVA is designed for you to grow large plants. For better efficiency we recommend planting either flowering produce (tomatoes, berries...) or leafy greens. You can grow both in the same time but the production efficiency would be affected as the two varieties require different nutrients.
Is there a monthly maintenance?
Yes but it is pretty simple. Check out the video
Is there a full user manual?
Yes! Download our User Guide
How much water does the AEVA need?
The AEVA has its own self-contained 2L water reservoir. Simply refill the water reservoir every 2 weeks. Our App is built to notify you when the water reservoir is running low.
What wood is used in the unit?
Birch and pine are what make up the AEVA.
Can I use Aqua Vega or Aqua Flora with both flowering and non-flowering plants?
You can use one or the other for both plants but it should be noted that flowering plants will do better with Aqua Flora and non-flowering plants will do better with Aqua Vega. For better efficiency we recommend planting either flowering produce (tomatoes, berries...) or leafy greens. You can grow both in the same time but the production efficiency would be affected as the two varieties require different nutrients. In case you grow both at the same time you need to use Aqua Flores.
How long will seed pods last if I don't use them right away?
As long as the seeds are stored appropriately (cool, dry and dark environment) and the peat moss plugs are kept dry, they can last a few months.
How do I give seeds best chance to germinate?
Run warm water over seeds before placing the seeds in the grow plug and spray the germination domes with warm water every day until germination. Use the germination kit provided for a higher success rate.
If I order seeds do the plugs come with it?
For every 1 seed order, you will receive a grow plug.
Can I change the seeds included in the starter pack?
Unfortunately the Starter Pack for the AEVA is a set package that comes with 4 seed pods of kale, 4 seed pods of Arugula, 4 seed pods of Lettuce, and 4 seed pods of Basil.
Can I use my own nutrients and seeds?
You can of course use your own nutrients however you have to make sure they are mineral. Non mineral nutrients or organic nutrients may not be 100% liquid and may clog your system. We won't be able to offer any warranty in this case
You can also use your own seeds but we won't be able to guarantee germination
What kind of warranty do you offer?
Within the first two years, if any of the moving parts (lights, pump, timers, etc.) do not work or break through no fault of your own, we will send you a free replacement. If your unit is not affixed to the wall and it falls and breaks you will be charged for any parts we need to replace
