About the new seed grow kit model
In 2020 we put together and tested a new seed grow kit. The new seed grow kit offers a number of advantages over the previous version. The most noticeable differences to the earlier version of the sowing set:
- The new mini greenhouse is available in both a round shape and an "eye shape" (oval)
- The new mini greenhouse has a slightly larger cultivation area due to its larger diameter (~ 29 cm2 instead of ~ 20 cm2)
- Due to the larger diameter, additional germinating seeds are easier to reach (round: ~ 6 cm, eye shape: ~ 7.4 cm x ~ 5 cm)
- Slightly higher mini greenhouse (~ 15 cm instead of ~ 10 cm)
- A larger amount of culture medium so that the germinated seeds can grow a little longer in the mini greenhouse
- The new mini greenhouse can be shipped flat
- Despite the larger mini greenhouse and a larger amount of growing medium and perlite, the price has stayed the same
