As any plant-lover knows, you don’t have to wait till winter thaws to get your green thumb on. Even in the off season, you can grow herbs, tomatoes, and other edibles indoors as long as you have the right equipment. If your New Year’s resolution is to garden more—or you simply miss your warm-weather hobby—today is your lucky day, because a whole crop of indoor plant tools by VIVOSUN are 30 percent off on Amazon.
Many of these products—like grow tents, grow lights, and air pumps—are not the kinds of gardening equipment you’re used to seeing. That’s because they’re used for an increasingly popular pastime called hydroponic gardening, which essentially means growing plants and vegetables without soil. Plant nutrients go straight into the water, where they’re absorbed and more quickly and easily.
With hydroponic gardening, plants grow faster and in a smaller amount of space than a traditional garden requires. Here are a few fruitful scores from Amazon’s end-of-year deal on soil-free plant growing goodies by top brand VIVOSUN, today only!
VIVOSUN 48" x 48" x 80" Mylar Hydroponic Grow Tent with Observation Window and Floor Tray for Indoor Plant Growing
This number-one bestseller is the queen of all grow tents. Set up your hydroponic plants inside this impenetrable canvas tent, which provides the perfect conditions for indoor gardening. It’s tear-proof, double-stitched, and refuses to let light escape. Other conveniences include a heavy-duty zipper that never gets caught and an observation window so you can monitor the progress on your veggies without disturbing the peace. And if your grow tent does sustain damage, just contact VIVOSUN—the company is known for its incredible customer service.
“Nice sturdy grow tent. My vegetables already seem happier in it!,” wrote one happy customer. “Had an issue with missing pieces when I received the package and I emailed the manufacturer on a Saturday and received an answer within a few hours. They had my parts sent ASAP and I received them by Wednesday!...Now I can grow year round, no bugs and no freeloading deer munching away on my stuff!”
Your indoor hydroponic vegetable garden needs a powerful LED grow light to reach its full potential, and this quiet beauty will have them blooming beyond your expectations. Imagine stalks and vines growing up to two feet tall and flowers that bloom up to 18 inches high. This LED light consumes just 135 watts of power and always keeps its cool throughout its lifespan, which happens to be 100,000 hours.
“Picked up this light in hopes of starting my first grow and I must say I'm 1000% happy with it,” wrote one shopper. “Fans are super quiet so I don't wake up anyone at night time when it's running, doesn't output much heat so i don't have to use an AC at all, not to mention saves me LOADS on my electric bill vs using flourescent or similar lights. Quality is A+, super sturdy, strong, and looks cool to boot! Gets my vote for any indoor grower.”
Another of VIVOSUN’s bestselling products, this heat mat will set you up for success. It hits a temperature of about10℉ to 20℉ above ambient air temperature, so it’s perfect for starting seedlings in the winter. It also has an Alloy Nikrothal heating wire and extra layer of insulating PET film to make sure your plants’ roots are never scorched. You can even use it for fermenting yogurt or brewing beer and kombucha.
“These are great!,” wrote one enthusiastic customer. “I do not have a temperature control on them, they are just plugged straight in. They are just barely warm to the touch. I have them in a greenhouse on a wire rack with a plastic shelf liner on the rack to create a solid surface for the mat to sit on...I live in the Seattle area, it is still freezing at night, and it snowed two days after I planted the seeds. But, several veggies are already sprouting.”
Amazon is also selling air pumps, hand pruners, duct fans, and more great products for growing plants indoors. Everything is 30 percent off today only—so get growing ASAP!
