    How to harvest begonia flowers?

    Our tips for successfully growing your begonia?

    Begonia plants are very compact, they do not exceed 25 cm. The leaves are a deep purple color. Pretty pale pink to deep pink flowers appear at the ends of the stems after about 2 months of cultivation.

    Pick the most beautiful flowers regularly when they are fully open. To do this, cut the flower with 1 cm of stem to preserve its freshness. Always harvest when the lights are on. To encourage the growth of the plant and the appearance of new flower buds, cut off faded flowers as well as leaves that come too close to the LEDs and shade other plants. Cut them off at their base or cut a group of leaves above a node.

    Lingots® are patented 100% biodegradable and compostable refills.

    They are guaranteed GMO-free and pesticide-free.

    The Lingot® contains:

    - a natural soiless media adapted to hydroponics

    - pre-sown organic seeds

    - essential nutrients

    The substrate is made of coconut fibers (peatless). This plant-based material is a renewable resources. The honeycombed texture of Lingot® enables optimal rooting and oxygenation, which guarantees a fast and healthy growth of your plants.

    The majority of the seeds we use are certified organic, some are untreated (to know which one, look at the description of each Lingot®).

    The nutrients integrated in the substrate are made of minerals and elements essential for growth and assimilated directly by plants. They are dosed precisely so that the plant uses them entirely during its life cycle.

    Thanks to the Véritable® garden technology, plants grow 2 to 3 times faster than in a garden. Some plants can be harvested from 3 weeks.

    The speed of growth depends on the species and the temperature of your room.

    For germination and growth time, refer to the Lingot® packaging, or visit the Lingot® page on our online shop.

    Once planted, a Lingot® enables you to harvest your herbs generously for 4 to 6 months. Indeed, after each harvest your plant grows back!

    The duration of a Lingot® depends on each species and how you harvest.

    To know the life cycle of each Lingot® refer to the packaging of the Lingot®, or visit the Lingot® page on our online shop.

    After 4 to 6 months, depending on its condition, you can compost your plant, or transplant outdoors.

    In spite of the performances of our apparatuses and the care which we bring to the manufacture of Lingots®, it can arrive that certain seeds do not develop correctly because they are living products. It should be known that the natural rate of germination of seeds varies between 65 and 95%. It is thus impossible for us to guarantee you a germination at 100%. However, we voluntarily planted more seeds than it is necessary in each Lingot® in order to obtain a good proportion of plants which arrive at maturity.

    To ensure you a maximum satisfaction, we offer a germination guarantee on our Lingots®. To know more about it, contact our Customer Service and consult our General Terms and Conditions.
