We carry a range of seeds especially chosen for Sprouting and Microgreen growing which also includes leafy greens such as Basil, Rocket etc. Also some food seeds that we find useful in cooking. Click to hide.
There are basically 2 types of sprouting systems one which is a stacked system where water is dribbled down from one layer to another and the other is the manual rinsing method, eg glass jar with mesh lid. What we've discovered is that the basic colander combined with a Perspex lid that can breath is a much better and simpler solution. Unlike the other systems it excels in all 4 steps of the sprouting process. 1 – overnight soaking in nutrient solution. 2 – daily rinse and soak in nutrient rich solution (greatly increasing the nutritional benefits of your sprouts). 3 – removal of un-sprouted seed and husk, which can cause bad bacteria to develop if not removed. 4 – storage in the refrigerator.
Our systems are made up of 2 sprouting colander sizes, if your sprouting needs are small then just several of the small colanders is a sufficient, however as your needs grow you can add the larger colanders which again simplify the procedure and make storage and husk removal simpler. Click to hide.
Here we have a collection of Microgreen growing kits along with the parts that make up the kits. They are divided into groups based on the tray type used to grow the Microgreen. The kits can also be used to grow longer term green leaf herbs such as basil.
There are 2 rectangular trays to choose from one is narrower and longer this is ideal for bookshelves, window ledges or kitchen bench. The other one is not as long but wider so takes up a little bit more depth but is a little bit more flexible with a few more options e.g. variable reservoir depths, ideal for thirsty microgreens such as Snow Peas. The 2 rectangular trays each come with optional stands which you can also attach lights to if you do not have a well lit area to grow your microgreens. The kits all come with growing medium to get you started along with organic bio activated fertiliser. Click to hide.

Living Apartment’s aim is to provide healthy solutions to the complexities of city living.
Even though our products, will be of great benefit to most people, we feel that bringing life to the concrete jungle, as typified by apartments, is our point of focus eg you don’t have to have a quarter acre block to grow your own food, in fact growing in pots and boxes can be a lot more efficient in time and resources, especially considering the water restrictions often necessary in most regions of our country.
LivingApartment has been researching and developing solutions for small space living for the last 15 years.
The first product that we have brought to market is our patented stainless steel plant support system that will allow you to attach self watering planter boxes and pots, perfectly level, to any surface ie balcony railings, fences, walls, windows etc. We will also be releasing a range of proprietary growing containers that will make growing your own food even easier.
The simplest and most efficient form of home-grown food is short-term salad greens typified by sprouts. We have spent a lot of time fine tuning this process to minimise your time and maximise the nutritious result.
Our latest release is a range of plant stands that support lightweight energy efficient LED lights, allowing you to grow Micro-greens ie salad greens in your lounge or kitchen or wherever you would like to, we call the range IVG short for Indoor Vegetable Garden.
