Planting Seeds: Grow Microgreens in a Tiny Vertical Garden

What It Is: I love growing my own veggies, and while I make an effort to do it in the summer, I have to admit it’d be nice to do so year-round. Enter the EcoQube Frame – a super small, apartment-worthy vertical garden that fits nicely on a shelf or can be wall-mounted. Simply add water and seeds and watch as your choice of plant – like microgreens or wheatgrass – grow in as little as 10 days. While I love the food application, you can also use it to grow a pretty piece of living art – try succulents for a stunning arrangement. How does it work you ask? Check out EcoQube’s handy resources here, but in a nutshell, water moves upwards through a unique capillary action, creating a super hospitable environment for your fave veggies and plants to grow. Love it!

Who It’s For: Your green-thumbed parents. Your veggie-loving sibling that just moved on. Your college dorm-dwelling kid that could use something green in their life.

What It Costs: $49 USD + $9 shipping to Canada.

Where It’s At: It’s Kickstarter week here on the CGG. Each day I’m featuring gift ideas you can nab on Kickstarter right now for great prices. Look for the EcoQube Frame to hit your mailbox in Winter 2018 peeps.

Score an extra entry into this month’s senz giveaway! Tell me in the comments below, what do you think of this earth-friendly gift idea?

    Not a fan. It is just another form of a planter and more expensive.

  12. dabrowne says:

    I love the idea, the price is reasonable compared to others I have seen. This would be perfect for my apartment living daughter who is very particular about her greens.

  13. Anne Derkat says:

    I’d love this for my husband who is presently nursing a couple of succulents.

    BONUS senz ENTRY : I think this earth-friendly gift idea is a great way to introduce gardening to city folks but not sure about the hefty price tag.

  20. cookie3 says:

    It’s a great idea for people with a green thumb , it’ just not for me. It would make a great gift though.

  21. janicour says:

    This would be great for herbs. I would love to purchase it!!

  22. Victoria Ess says:

    I love this idea and it would be perfect in my small kitchen.

  23. Kelly H says:

    Neat gift idea if you live in an apartment, but I would probably just build my own planter for cheaper.

  24. jared says:

    cool idea, but probably gimmicky

  25. Lori P says:

    Depending on the person(s), this might be ideal for temporary digs where plants or greenery are limited. A couple of herbs might be fun to grow provided their scents aren’t overpowering.
