Lettuce Grow’s signature product, The Farmstand, is a self-watering, self-fertilizing hydroponic setup. Basically, plants grow in water instead of soil, nutrients are delivered via fertilizer in recirculating water and grow lights simulate sunlight when growing indoors. The Farmstand starts with a 3-foot-8-inch-tall base that holds water and a pump, with a hole for adding water and fertilizer and testing pH. You then add layers for planting six plants at a time. The entry-level option starts with 12 plants, then you can build up to 18, 24, 30 or 36 plants! (Read HGTV editorial director and expert gardener Kelly Smith Trimble's review here.)
