• We’re always looking for ways to bring our customers the best experience possible, so we integrated feedback from our community to make our Family Gardens even better with our new Rise Garden. Some of the changes we’ve made include:

    a. Easier assembly
    b. Wood - Thicker, rounded wood with different attachment methods for easier assembly and a refined appearance
    c. Metal - Lighter for easier assembly and curved for a refined appearance
    d. Plastics - Custom-molded food-grade, BPA-free, phthalate-free PE or PP reservoir, trays, lids and rigid pipes with refined shapes for better water flow and easier cleaning, plus an expanded water reservoir
    e. Electronics - Re-designed, water-resistance enclosures w/ ruggedized connectors, easy to remove and replace (if necessary), increased reliability and compatibility for future accessories, improved pump dry-run protection
    f. Hardware - Adjustable feet, fewer and larger screws for easier assembly, single-piece tubing, quick-connect to pump

  • Our Gardens are designed in Chicago and manufactured in Mexico.

  • No, our garden has been designed to accommodate one tall and up to two short levels. Modifying the Garden beyond how it has been designed could make the Garden top-heavy and unstable.

  • Our Gardens come with a complimentary Starter Kit to get your Garden growing. We include an assortment of pre-selected seeds. We’re unable to accommodate special requests or substitutes.

  • For Rise Gardens in our Cloud colorway, the wood is natural pine. For Rise Gardens in our Dark Slate colorway, the wood is pine with a custom Chestnut stain. Because we use natural materials, the shade and grain of the wood may vary.

Specifications

  • PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) is a measure of the intensity of light usable by plants. At the surface of the plant pods, PAR averages 130 for a tall level and 200 for a short level. PAR rises as plants approach the lights.

  • All plastics that touch your plants or water are food-safe. The tubing, pipes, water trays, tray lids, and reservoirs are made of polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). Net cups are acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). The pump housing is nylon. Electronic enclosures are ABS and/or an ABS/polycarbonate (PC) alloy.

  • The base level of the Garden has the tallest grow space with a 17 inch grow height. For the top level of the Garden, there is 12.5 inches of grow space. For the middle level of a Triple Family Garden, the grow height between a tray and tray lights on the bottom of another tray is 11 inches. Plants should be pruned to stay about an inch away from the lights.

Operation & Maintenance

  • A Single Rise Garden uses 75W of power when the lights are on, and 15W when lights are off. With the default setting of 16 hrs on and 8 hrs off, this is 43kWh/mo. Electricity cost per kWh varies dramatically by location, so if your electricity costs an average of $0.20/kWh, the monthly cost would be approximately $9 per month.

    A Double Rise Garden uses 135W of power when the lights are on, and 15W when lights are off. With the default setting of 16 hrs on and 8 hrs off, this is 71kWh/mo. If your electricity costs an average of $0.20/kWh, the monthly cost would be approximately $14 per month.

    A Triple Rise Garden uses 195W of power when the lights are on, and 15W when lights are off. With the default setting of 16 hrs on and 8 hrs off, this is 100kWh/mo. If your electricity costs an average of $0.20/kWh, the monthly cost would be approximately $20 per month.

  • We offer 3 different tray lids for our Gardens, a 4-pod, an 8-pod, and a 12-pod tray lid. The 4-pod tray lid is designed for our largest plants like tomatoes, peppers, and kale. The 8-pod tray lid is best used for baby greens, herbs, beets, or plants you intend to transplant into soil. The 12-pod tray lid is suitable for compact growing like radishes, cilantro, and microgreens. On a three-level Garden, if you use 9 of our 12-pod tray lids, you can grow 108 plants.

  • The amount of time a Garden can run before the water reservoir needs refilling and Care depends on the plants that are growing the Garden. In general, larger plants will require watering and maintenance more often.

  • We designed the plastics in our Garden to fit in a dishwasher and are dishwasher safe. These include tray lids, the drain adapter and any rigid tubing. For the large inner tray, we recommend using a soft sponge to scrub the tray and avoid scratches. Our trays are designed with a smooth finish to make wiping off any nutrient buildup or plant debris easier. However, using a rough sponge or material to clean the trays may scratch the smooth, polished finish, and over time, make the trays harder to clean.

  • Yes, however, any third-party electronics should not be directly connected to the Garden’s electronics and therefore must be used with its own power supply. Please note that it voids our warranty to attach any non-approved third-party electronics to our control modules.

  • EC/pH sensors are notoriously unreliable in the hydroponic community. The most reliable sensors tend to be very expensive and still need regular calibration. Our Rise Labs team was determined to solve this well-known issue by developing our innovative, patent-pending SmartCare technology that utilizes proprietary data to generate specialized care for your plants.
