Whether you home-growing for medical or recreational purposes, it wouldn’t be easy, to extract exactly what suits you from the abundance of available information, especially on your first time. Among the factors to consider are the space you use, the size of pots and planters, type of soil, your choice of equipment and the plant type you’re interested in.
Home growing has many advantages. Apart from knowing exactly how the plant is looked after and what it been fed, the cultivation process enables the grower to take part in a life cycle, get acquainted with the wonder of creation and watch closely how a seed turns into a sprout, a seedling, and finally a full-fledged blooming plant.

A relatively new concept, urban agriculture refers to the idea of growing edible plants in a modern urban environment. While it has numerous benefits, its prime value is the way it harmonizes with the ecological, economic, and above all the social fabric of modern lifestyle. While urban agriculture could be found in a variety of locations such as designated parks and rooftops, GrowDirector specializes in its most accessible form – growing food within the space of the urban apartment.
One of urban agriculture’s main advantages is the production of fresh and healthy food – the ability to grow pesticide and chemical-free yields all the while knowing how they were treated and consume them straight off the plant.
In addition, research clearly indicates the positive impact that urban agriculture has on growers, from stress relief to a significant decrease in blood pressure. Beyond the personal aspect, urban agriculture contributes to environmental protection, helping to bring down refrigeration and transportation costs by saving on energy consumption, as well as reducing CO2 emissions in city centers. Lastly, based on long-term assessments, urban agriculture is considered cheaper than purchasing food in retail chain stores.
