FAQ

How easily can you clean Homefarm?

Since the box is not made of flamingo, but of a smooth surface, it is easy to clean using the water hose or a wet cloth.

How much water can Homefarm contain?

Since the box has thin but strong walls, it can hold more water. We have calculated the volume to 63 liters. In practice, no more than 20 cm of water will be filled at Homefarm, giving a volume of 49 liters. If we assume that the soil in the plant pipes displaces some water, Homefarm will hold 46.5 liters of water.

What kind of plastic is Homefarm made from?

Homefarm is made from 100% recycled plastic collected in Denmark. The plastic type is PP, which is a very hard and durable plastic type. You know the type of plastic from food containers. This hard plastic from which the product is made also saves on an inner bag as the roots do not grow through.

Is the Homefarm suitable for food?

Many people are thinking about whether plastic can release dangerous substances. Fortunately, we can reassure you that the material used does not contribute to the content. The material does not contain plasticizers or other substances that can be released into the contents. Since Homefarm is not in direct contact with food, it is not necessary to label it with the "glass and fork" symbol. It is nevertheless marked in terms of traceability regarding manufacturer, production batch and material used.

Will the water inside the Homefarm get hot?

You could think that the water would get hot, and therefore the temperature of the water in a Homefarm has been measured over a period against a box of flamingo. The result was that there is no measurable temperature difference. We think this is because Homefarm can easily get rid of the heat due to the thin walls.
