If you would like to grow vegetables indoors we have a range of solutions which we believe will help you make the most of limited resources e.g. space and light.
Some features of the modular plant stands:-
Most of them are constructed of clear Perspex, making them attractive and very functional e.g. being clear means that no valuable light is obstructed to the plant.
IVG S1,S2 and S3 are modular and can be expanded vertically and in some cases horizontally as well(S2,S3). If you have a sunny window then they can be used standalone(S2,S3), if you do not have enough light than they can be assembled with a range of different types of low-power LED grow lights. And of course you can do a combination e.g.
1- If you had a window which was say 1m from the ground, you could have the bottom part of the stand growing plants under the LED lights and the top of the stand using the sun coming in the window.
2- Another scenario, using IVG S2, if you had a floor-to-ceiling glass panel you could grow pot plants in the Shelfs closest to the window and then use the LED lights on Shelfs that are facing in towards the living area.
3- Aquaponics, where a fish aquarium is used as the water and nutrient source to grow plants, this option is available for IVG S1,S2 and S3 (coming soon).
Reasons why you may choose to grow your vegetables indoors, with or without the assistance of low-power LED grow lights.
· Like me, you may live in an apartment and your small balcony does not really get enough sun, or competition from the insects and birds is just too much.
· You may have a large family or like me, like lots of salad, with the LED grow lights you can easily turn a bookshelf into your own personal salad farm.
· Growing vegetables inside is very convenient and free from animal and insect competition, growing under lights gives you flexibility as to where you do it with limited space, and growth rates are not affected by season.
· Using the latest low wattage, high intensity LED grow lights, are much cheaper to run.

Below you will find categories which contain our Indoor Vegetable Garden (IVG) series of growing systems, and below that you will find a category that contains all the various LED grow lights that we supply, we have collected them all in one place in case you would like to just build your own system.
Below that you will find a category for a range of smaller style plant stands principally designed to sit on a window ledge or table next to a sunny window, as they do not have the option of being upgraded to use low-power LED grow lights.
Both IVG-Series 1 & IVG-Series 2 can be used to grow similar things, IVG1 has a slightly more elegant design but IVG2, can be expanded on and added to in more ways, making it the total functional solution from the tiniest space i.e. in a bookshelf or up to 1.8m tall cascading system growing combinations of sprouts and herbs & Aquaponics.

IVG-Series 3 is a frame that supports LED grow lights that surround the plant, the most common use of this system is to grow climbing plants e.g. tomatoes, they can be trained to grow in a tight Zig-Zag giving incredibly dense growth in a small area, lights can be fitted both above the plant and vertically at the sides. Aquaponics – if you have an existing fish tank this system can be used to surround the tank and hang plants into or just above the water of the tank, with the light hanging above (coming soon).
