Q: how many pots do i need for a household of 2.
A: let's assume you eat lettuce for most of your meals, i would have 3 plants of garden lettuce and maybe another 3 plants of a different variety of lettuce (depending on how much you consume). I would have 3 herbs and gives you 3 for other plants. So 12 plants is great, 15 plants even better to experiment with other variety. The system is expandable so you can add more pots as your needs grow.
Q: what happens if my power goes out for an hour. A: the watering cycle is recommended to run 5mins and stop 40mins. If your power goes out for an hour or 2, the roots of your plants will stay moist but will not die.
