Do I need any soil for the plants I plant?
No, The Greens Grower is designed to grow in non-organic substrate, instead of dirt.The Greens Grower ships with the growing medium included.
Should i unplug the Greens Grower to save energy?
We do not recommend this. The small pump uses very little electricity. In fact the pump uses 1/4 of a watt, So compared to a 100 watt light bulb, The pump uses 6 watts a day and the 100 watt light bulb uses that much in 1 hour. The other problem with unplugging the pump is forgetting to plug it back in. Your plant cannot live without the pump running.
