A Remove the drawer from the green box. Dampen a single fleece cloth with plain water. Use drinking water or water from a running body of water. Please do not use waste water, sterilized water, demineralized water or distilled water. Put the moistened fleece cloth in the drawer

B Slide the drawer into the green box. Connect the power supply to your green box. Plug the banana plug into the green box's banana socket.

C For the power supply that plugs into the outlet, make sure the rotary knob is set to the correct voltage. A yellow round screw head indicates several power setting options: 12V, 9V, 6V, 3V, 0V Connect the power supply to your 220V socket. 

Germination Substrate

Various materials can be used as a substrate for germination in the green box.


Be careful not to use pressed and refined paper used for printing or writing paper. Instead, it includes all natural and unprocessed papers that are defined by high absorbency. This includes e.g. B. kitchen or toilet paper. It is so well suited because it can absorb a lot of water and is permeable to air, so that an uninterrupted supply of air is possible and mold formation is made more difficult. Above all, it is important to ensure that undyed and unscented paper is used, otherwise pollutants can penetrate the plant, which are harmful to health and inhibit growth.


Cotton wool is a simple, commercially available substrate substitute that can be purchased at any pharmacy. As with paper, care must be taken with cotton that it is colorless and odorless. It also has good air circulation because it has a loose structure.


Unlike cotton and paper, which are commercially available, molton is made and sold specifically for sprouting. These sprout moltons can usually be found in garden center assortments. The benefits are the same as stated for paper and cotton.

Use paper, cotton or molleton for germination

The selected material (wool, paper, molleton) is laid out in the drawer of the green box. The seeds can be evenly distributed on it. Depending on the seeds and the residual moisture in the substrate, the material is moistened twice a day. Care must be taken that the seeds do not float. It is advisable to sprinkle the seeds or spray them with an atomizer to prevent this. However, after this watering, the moisture of the substrate must be checked so that it does not run the risk of drying out.
