STEP 1: Get Your yCubes
Your yCubes have been shipped and you will receive them shortly!
STEP 2: Place yCubes in a Small Tray
*Kindly note, you do not need to add tap water to trays with already wet yCubes moved from your Gardyn.
STEP 3: Keep Them Moist
Make sure that yCubes are hydrated at all times, but not oversaturated. Do not exceed the maximum water level depicted. If your yCube appears similar to this image below, it has too much water. No need to worry, though! Simply place it in a tray on its own with no water- by the time it needs more water, it should be sprouted and ready to place on your Gardyn.
Monitor daily for sprouts and moisture. Your yCubes will be ready for the Gardyn once the seeds have germinated and the sprouts have established cotyledons.
STEP 4: Clean Your Pods & Top off your tank
Before inserting the newly sprouted yCubes into your Gardyn, remove the pods from the column. Discard expired yCubes and clean the pod. You can rinse the pod or wash in the dishwasher.
Make sure you top off your tank with fresh water and 1/2 teaspoon of plant food per 1 gallon of water added.
STEP 5: Insert yCubes into Column
Insert the sprouted yCube in the pod as shown and place the pod with the germinated yCube back on the column.
STEP 6: Keep Growing!
In the Gardyn, continue to add one teaspoon of Plant Food for every two gallons of water. Enjoy and happy gardyning!
