Basic Info

Italian or Genovese basil is the most common variety of this plant. 

It's mostly used fresh, in salads, or as a topping in pizza or any other dish. But dare to try it in more creative ways: you can use it in a desert or even add it to a cocktail.

Fun fact: in the middle ages, this plant was considered a magical medicinal plant!

Care + Tips

Basil takes 5 weeks to be considered an adult plant. 

That being said, you can either harvest the whole plant or leave it in boombi and take just the leafs you need. 
Your basil will keep growing and giving new leaves.


Recommended water and lightning timings: 

Water: 1 minute every hour 

Light: 16 hours ON per day



Plug Tech

We avoid the use of soil thanks to our growing medium composed of coconut fiber and peat, which allows us to recreate the perfect growing conditions.

The coconut fibre plug is a growing medium that holds the ideal amunts of water and humidity for plants to grow and roots to develop.

The porosity of the plug promotes root growth. Keep an eye on any roots sticking out of the sides of the plug, they are a good sign! They indicate that your plants will grow healthy and strong.

It is composed of 90% coconut fiber and 10% peat, so it is totally compostable and free of chemicals

Germination warranty

Everything should be fine, but nature can always surprise us. If your plants do not germinate, we will replace them.

Set up your boombi with these 3 easy steps

1. Germinate

Add water to the germinator and wait for the preseeded cones to sprout. Then move the budding plants to boombi.

2. Move the plugs to boombi

Mix the bag of solid nutrients with water in the bottle included and shake it like a Polaroid picture.

3. Germinate

Plug it in and let de farming begin!
