#SmartPlants: Gardening For Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere!
Every year we cannot avoid the cold, nongerminating winter months. For many of us winter is when we enjoy staying inside with our favorite hot drink, wrap ourselves under the blankets, and sleep longer nights. But for many, winter also means that the cold weather doesn’t allow activities like gardening to be done. We are excited to share with you four amazing gardening gadgets for year round growing. These devices are so convenient and handy that even those who live in urban areas will find a new hobby!
Click and Grow
One contraption that is taking indoor gardening to the next level: Click and Grow. What makes this indoor garden interesting is that the technology is modern and simple to use. Click and Grow features an LED grow lamp to ferment various herb and veggie seed capsules in a special soil. This soil is truly innovative; it’s packed with the nutrients every plant needs, so there’s no need for fertilizer! Click and Grow even has a reservoir that can store enough water to last for a month and uses only 6 watts of electricity. Now that’s an eco-friendly product! What really makes Click and Grow stand out are its sizes and how low-maintenance it is. In the device, special sensors monitor the growth of each plan,t so even a busy bee can grow their own salad. With sizes that are designed to fit in almost any home, even college kids and apartment residents can garden year round.
City folks in studio apartments or college freshmen in the tiniest dorm rooms on campus may not have a ton of space for growing anything. But don’t fret, Botanium is a great gardening gadget for anyone living in a confined space! Working in a similar manner to Click and Grow, Botanium inhibits low maintenance gardening and a water reservoir. Instead of light and sensors, it uses a built-in timer to water plants like herbs and spices several times a day without soil. Yes, that may sound weird, but the creators have opted for porous stones to take the place of soil. As a result, the plants grow faster and even novice gardeners can grow plenty of herbs and spices. As a bonus, the design is compact and very stylish, so it will take up the space of a vase and look great in the process.
There is even the EarthBox, which also provides anyone with low maintenance gardening for just about any location. Just like the other smart gardens, the EarthBox is designed with a water reservoir that slowly waters plants over time. Conveniently, it doesn’t require electricity and casters can be attached for easy movement. This is great for rooftop gardens in cities, or just about any home for that matter. What we really love about the EarthBox is that a wider variety of vegetables can be grown in them such as squash, zucchini, and cucumbers. Now that’s truly a way to get fresh veggies at any time!
Then there’s Sproutsio, another smart garden that also uses soil free gardening with a very high tech touch. While it may be very similar to other smart gardens, plants grown in Sproutsio maintained at any time With all of these new products on the market there is no doubt that plant care is being upgraded to help anyone who wants to grow their own food or make their indoor plants last longer. Regardless, smart gardening is truly a nifty approach to growing.
