What can I grow in Auk Mini?

Almost anything that sprouts and grows!

However, plants fitting within the Auk Mini work best. For larger plants like tomatoes and chili, consider dwarf varieties from our online store. Feel free to use your own seeds, plant cuttings, or transplant store-bought herbs. We recommend experimenting, that's part of the fun with Auk!

 

Seasonal plants (that need both summer and winter) to flourish are not very suitable for indoor cultivation (for example, blueberries or regular strawberries), but it's possible if you simulate winter for the plant. 

 

When can I harvest?

In Auk Mini, plants grow up to 5 times faster than regular gardening, and are ready for harvest after 4-6 weeks

Growth speed is very dependent on room temperature – the warmer the better, but try to keep it between 20–28 degrees celcius.

With most plants, you can harvest for months on end, some can even live for several years! It's best to harvest little by little, so new leaves get exposed to the light and grow out.

How do I maintain Auk Mini?

You only need to refill water and nutrients, and harvest from your plants

A batch in Auk Mini can last anywhere from 4-10 months, depending on the plant.  It's best to harvest little by little, so new leaves get exposed to the light and grow out. 

When restarting Auk Mini, we recommend using fresh coco fiber (€14) for optimal pH and oxygen, though old fiber can be reused. A refill package with both coco fiber and nutrients is available for only €35.
