After researching a bit, and probably jumping into the water too fast when it comes to buying products like grow lights, I have purchased some seeds to grow in my Krakty hydroponic room setup.
Buying seeds was a specific hassle in Kuwait; the very few and limited stores that sold seeds only sold very common varieties. Think Beefsteak tomatoes; the probably most common tomato you can find at any supermarket. Since such tomatoes are so easy to buy, I want to grow something more unique.
In fact, we even found a nursery selling seeds with the giant warning label on the back: “Warning. Treated with poison. Do not consume or grow food products from these.” What?!
In the end we found a company called Sustainable Organic Q8 that seems to import from reliable producers.
The initial seeds that we have ordered are:
- Amaranth, Red Leaf
- Basil, Purple Petra
- Cucumber, Lemon Cucumber
- Lettuce, New Red Fire
- Lettuce, Red Sails
- Spinach, Matador
- Spinach, Lavewa
- Swiss Chard, Bright Lights
- Tomato, San Marzano
Hopefully within the week we will have the buckets and grow lights and started growing!
