Growing in the Start is easy. 

Here are some instructions to have success:


  1. Fill your Start with 650 ml (22 oz.) of RO or distilled water weekly.
  2. Add the two nutrient packets, one at a time, after each water change. Remove the insert completely to conduct a water change.
  3. Put small toothpick holes in the bottom of your peat pod to help the roots hit the water
  4. Play Bob Marley softly in the background
  5. Tap the water buoy to check if it's run dry. If it has fallen all the way down, you need to add water.
