The Salad Box from Hydrofarm is a great introduction to hydroponics and perfectly capitalizes on the edible gardening trend. What customer wouldn’t want year-round access to the freshest leafy greens and herbs possible? This compact unit can be used outdoors or indoors on a sunny windowsill or, even better, with the addition of a grow light like Hydrofarm’s Jumpstart 2’ T5 Grow Light System.

It’s extremely easy to set up and use, even for a beginner gardener, and contains everything needed except for the seedlings (you’ll have to sell those separately) and, of course, the water. The Salad Box requires no electricity at all, and grows leafy greens and herbs up to 30 percent faster compared to traditional soil-based methods. The system includes one reservoir tray, one top plate lid with eight plant sites, one top-off bottle with cap, eight net cups, eight Root Wraps, one fifty-gram packet of general purpose nutrient, six drain plugs and an instruction booklet.

Sunburst CMh

Hydrofarm’s Sunburst CMh system combines two extremely popular grow light products — the Sunburst and Phantom CMh — into a single unit that packs the benefits of ceramic metal halide lighting into the Sunburst’s compact, all-in-one format. CMh technology provides higher quality light than other high-intensity discharge lamps, which in turn results in better plant growth and crop yield.

The Sunburst CMh has a built-in digital ballast designed to run the 315W ceramic metal halide lamp, which in this system operates in the horizontal position. The reflector’s interior is 95% European hammertone aluminum and offers excellent uniformity and diffusion. Offered in two lamp color temperature options: 3100K or 4200K.
