9,99 €

Grow fresh herbs known in the Italian cuisine in your GreenBox!

This set containing eight PlantPlugs and seeds allow you to grow fresh herbs all year round in your apartment with the help of your Smart Indoor Garden GreenBox.

Contains the following:

-2 x Genovese Basil PlantPlugs
-2 x Piccolino Basil PlantPlugs
-2 x Oregano PlantPlugs
-2 x Thyme PlantPlugs

Thanks to its pleasant aroma and soft texture, basil genovese is a popular base for pestos - and also elementary for Italian cuisine as a topping for tomatoes and mozzarella. The smaller leaf of the piccolino basil adds a gentle sweetness.
The world-famous oregano brings strong, spicy flavours to pizza and pasta sauces. Next, an aromatic, final touch for soups, vegetables, fish and meat dishes is provided by the classic thyme. Thanks to its essential oils, thyme - when brewed - is also a proven household remedy for a sore throat.


How does it work?
It's easy! Just put the supplied seeds into the PlantPlugs and place the PlantPlugs into the sockets of the GreenBox. Fill the tank with water and watch your herbs grow! After about 4 - 6 weeks you can enjoy your first harvest.

The PlantPlugs
Our PlantPlugs are made of coconut fibres, a by-product of the coconut industry. They maintain their shape when in contact with water. Because they emit almost no particles, they are very clean to handle.

To keep your plants well nourished, the PlantPlugs are enriched with a mineral fertiliser containing an excellent supply of nutrients. Of course, the PlantPlugs are 100% biodegradable and free from pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, genetically modified organisms, or otherwise questionable substances.

  For even faster growth, we recommend the new GreenBox Booster.

Product details

In our PlantPlug sets you will find everything you need for your first harvest with the GreenBox. In addition to 8 dimensionally stable plant substrates, we have also put together 4 different types of seeds. For one PlantPlug you need ½ packet of seeds. This way you can fill your entire GreenBox with one set.
A PlantPlug consists of mineral fertiliser wrapped in coconut fibre, which is a by-product of the coconut industry. When a PlantPlug comes into contact with water, it retains its shape and is thus an ideal mediator of liquid and nutrients for the plant. The plant substrates we currently source from the Netherlands are 100% biodegradable and free from pesticides, fungicides, insecticides and other foreign substances. Our BerlinGreen seeds come from Germany and Poland.
Before the plant substrates make their way to us, they are thermally treated. This ensures a long shelf life and the exclusion of foreign bodies such as insects. To keep them for a long time at home, store them at room temperature in a dry place away from light. Simply keep the PlantPlugs in the package that came with them and you can enjoy them for up to 3 years.
Our long-term shipping partner DHL ensures fast delivery times (max. 3 days within Germany), detailed tracking and safety of the parcel. We offer free shipping to Germany, Austria, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland with every GreenBox purchase. Customers from outside EU are exempted from VAT on our store – but must be aware of all import taxes (incl. VAT and customs duty) on the parcel arrival.

Any more questions?

You can grow different types of plants at the same time! Some plants grow slower, others faster. We have already put together plants with similar growth rhythms in our PlantPlug sets.
Our PlantPlugs consist mainly of coconut fibre, a by-product of the coconut industry. A mineral fertiliser that provides the plants with good nutrients is also included. Of course, they are 100% biodegradable and free of pesticides, fungicides, insecticides, genetically modified organisms or otherwise hazardous substances.
The optimal storage for the PlantPlugs: dry, dark and at room temperature. Stored this way, they will last for at least 2 years.
Of course! We also offer PlantPlugs without seeds. With the 24 PlantPlugs of the Experimental Set, you can experiment with the seeds of your choice. You may also plant individually selected seeds in your GreenBox. These are available in our seed selection in both single and 4-packs.
As the plant grows, its roots penetrate the PlantPlug more and more, so that eventually they can no longer be separated from it. To provide space and nutrients for the roots of a new plant, you should use a fresh PlantPlug for the next sowing. In many cases you can harvest more than once: If you pluck only the outer leaves from lettuce and leave the inside, it will continue to grow. With herbs, it is best to cut off the upper shoots, which in turn are located above leaf branches. This way, new shoots can grow.
Absolutely! The GreenBox also provides optimal starting conditions for larger plants. As soon as the "nursery" becomes too small for them, you can repot them in normal soil (indoors or outdoors). This way you can also use the GreenBox as a perfect growing station for your (vegetable) garden. With the PlantPlugs as a growing base, the whole process is clean and easy.
To prevent algae or mould from arising on the moist and light-exposed surface of the PlantPlugs, we have developed the U-discs. These are placed on the substrate surface after sowing. Seeds and seedlings still get enough light. The U-discs should stay until the plant has formed enough leaves to overshadow the PlantPlug’s surface of its own. Then the U-discs can be removed.
