Unsprouted yCubes Tips
Rinse Unsprouted yCubes
Gently rinse with water to remove any plant food. Be careful not to disturb the seed or rockwool.
Place yCubes in a Small Tray
Place your wet yCubes in a shallow tray. Proceed to step 3 only once they begin to get lighter in color and weight.
Be sure not to add too much water, as it can impact germination.
Keep Them Moist
Make sure that yCubes are hydrated at all times, but not oversaturated. Only add water to the tray if yCubes start to become light in color or weight. Do not exceed the maximum water level depicted. 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.
Do NOT add plant food. Depending on the species, germination can take between 3 and 25 days
Clean Your Pods
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.
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.
