Indoor Growing Kits & Workshops: How to Start Growing at Home

With the new year approaching, many of us will have resolutions to eat healthier, reduce our environmental impact, or learn a new skill. Discovering indoor growing can check all three of those boxes. 

Starting a new hobby can be daunting and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be. Growing at home can be an enjoyable and rewarding experience, especially with the help of NuLeaf. 

Indoor Growing at Home: Where to Start

We offer a range of products perfect for your hydroponics journey, regardless of where you’re at. 

Hydroponic Mason Jar

The Hydroponic Mason Jar Countertop Garden offers an affordable way to explore hydroponic gardening. This all-inclusive kit, perfect for year-round indoor vegetable growing, makes an ideal gift for gardeners. 

It includes a mason jar, about 12 seeds, a net pot, a neoprene net pot insert (cloning collar), coco coir as the growing medium, and premium-grade hydroponic nutrients sufficient to make 8 litres of nutrient solution. An instruction booklet is also provided to guide you through the setup and maintenance process, making it an excellent starter kit for those new to hydroponics.


The Hydrobucket by Vision Hydroponics is a groundbreaking addition to hydroponic bucket gardens made in Canada. This innovative product allows growers to easily access and maintain their plants’ root system and nutrient solutions, particularly benefiting those using Deep Water Culture gardens. 

The Hydrobucket is constructed from high-quality, food-grade plastic and is designed to enhance plant health by increasing water volume for pH stabilization. Its unique Hydrolid design enables growers to inspect the root system and air stone without disturbing the plant or opening the lid, and it also supports the construction of a custom trellis. This product is ideal for growers seeking a reliable and low-disturbance method to nurture larger, healthier plants.

Hydroponic Bin

The Hydroponic Gardening Bin offers an easy and cost-effective entry into hydroponic gardening, ideal for those looking to save money and eat healthier. This user-friendly system requires filling the bin with water, adding nutrients, and placing plants in the provided net pots. You can observe your garden’s growth with minimal effort, assisted by the included water level gauge that indicates when additional water and nutrients are needed, typically only every 2-4 weeks. 

A typical head of lettuce can be grown for about $1.00 to $1.50, depending on your lighting system. The bin promises quick growth, with a seedling transforming into a full head of lettuce in just 30 days, and requires very little maintenance. Not only is it easy for beginners, but it also provides fresher, pesticide-free food right from your hydroponic setup.
