When adding nutrients to the water in your SmartReservoir, always check the nutritional information on your compost packet. Most multi-purpose composts will provide plants with sufficient nutrients for up to 1 month, so you will not need to add additional nutrients until after this time.

The Chilligrow Planter has been developed in co-operation with chilli growing experts to provide the best possible growing environment for your chillies. Our customers have grown 2x larger chilli harvests than with growbags or standard pots thanks to our Chilligrow’s clever design.
