SuperCloset Hydroponics System Attempts World Record for Basil Leaf Size and Production per Square Foot

Share Article

A SuperCloset vertical hydroponics system just harvested an enormous basil grow in the Big Buddha Box vertical indoor gardening system which produced leaves over 14 sq. inches. One of the largest basil leaves on record is 18 sq. inches held by Susan Sauter from 1996 in West Virginia. This record is certified by the West Virginia Department of Agriculture. The largest basil leaf in the Big Buddha Box Basil Grow is unverified at 32 sq. inches. SuperCloset is also contending for the World Record for production per square foot for an indoor hydroponic basil grow.

Even though most basil is grown outdoors, indoor hydroponically grown basil thrives and can be cultivated quicker and larger. Basil likes a warmer temperature of more than 70 degrees at night and more than 50 degrees during the day. It also thrives at a Ph between 5.5 and 6.5 which is the perfect range for hydroponic gardening.

The perfect most prolific and efficient hydroponic systems is The Big Buddha Box. The Big Buddha Box is the most innovative vertical hydroponics system for the hobbyist to commercial indoor gardeners. It is very cost-effective at producing lettuce, green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, herbs and basil. The Big Buddha Box is a four walled, 87-plant capacity growing system vertically oriented toward a light column in the center of the unit. With the vertical net trellis system instituted in the design, plants are coaxed and trained to grow toward the center of the unit enabling maximum production. In the Big Buddha Box, plants typically only need to reach up to 2 feet before they can be harvested and consumed. The basil plants in the Big Buddha Box Basil Grow achieved heights of 30” because of the enhanced growing environment of the Big Buddha Box.
