More about the Planter...
INDOOR - With a Reservoir - includes a military grade, built-in moisture barrier that wraps around the bottom of the Pocket, from back to front. This barrier creates a reservoir to ensure walls and floors don't get wet. The barrier also conserves water and helps to keep soil's nutrition in your Pocket. Best choice for INDOOR gardens.
OUTDOOR - Without a Reservoir -good for outdoor applications in rainy environments, it has a recessed moisture barrier that allows proper drainage when it rains.

More about the plants...
The fruit on these plants are up to 4½" long and 1½" across at maturity but you can harvest and eat them at any size. This is a very productive plant with the added benefit of not vining out and taking up as much space as most cucumber plants.
- Soil & Water: pH of 6.0-6.8. Water deeply, but don't over water
- Harvesting & Storage: Harvest the first fruits early to encourage continued production through the season. Cut (don't pull) the fruit from the stems. If grown indoors, you will need to pollinate the flowers by hand. Thorough instructions will come with your plants. Don’t worry, this is fun and easy.
