The magic of this product is that it allows people to grow their own vegetables in any season even if they have no outdoor space for a garden, and have no prior experience growing vegetables or gardening in general. In this review, we’ll explain why a tower garden is a great way to start growing plants at home and why you shouldn’t be intimidated even if you have no idea how hydroponics work. We will cover how difficult it was and the time it took to assemble our Juice Plus Tower Garden, what type of plants people can grow using a vertical tower garden growing system, and much more.
What is the Juice Plus Tower Garden?
The Juice Plus Tower Garden is a great product that allows people to easily grow up to 20 plants with vertical gardening. You can use your tower garden in any season both indoors and outdoors. For example, for people who live in colder climates, they could have a beautiful tower garden growing fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and even flowers outside during the summer and then move it inside and use the supplied grow lights during the winter.
Standing about 5 feet tall with the led grow lights attached onto the top, the Juice Plus Tower Garden is a simple at-home hydroponic system that’s pretty easy to set up, operates automatically, and is actually incredibly simple to understand – even for the novice gardener.
The base of the product is similar to a large plastic storage tote and serves as the water reservoir. In hydroponics or aeroponics, the water reservoir is where a solution of fertilizer and water is stored and then periodically pumped across the exposed roots of plants. The plants are in a growing medium other than soil such a rockwool. The base of the Juice Plus Tower Garden is circular and about 3 and a half feet in diameter and 2 feet high.
Attached on the top center of the base is an attractive white vertical tower with 16 small holes spaced apart that will be the home to whatever vegetables, fruits or other plants you might want to grow!
Assembling Juice Plus Grow Tower Garden
Assembling the Juice Plus Tower Garden was a relatively easy process that required no power tools and no mechancical know-how. The entire process really just consisted of hooking a tube up to a pump, placing the pump in the Juice Plus tower garden reservoir, and clipping together stackable tower garden peices where the actual plants will grow. If you’re using the option tower garden grow lights, they only require a few extra minutes to assembly and add to your grow tower. Each light clips simply into the light-base, which in turn clips easily on top of the tower garden.
