You gotta love living in 2017, new technology is constantly making our lives easier. We now have the Seedo automatic hydroponics system. This could change the game for the population who don’t have the knowledge or time to grow their own veggies, herbs, or cannabis. So listen up all you over worked gardeners, cause this is an exciting invention!
What is Seedo?
Seedo labs calls this invention “the first self driving car for hydroponic growing”. You simply place your seed or cuttings in the Seedo container, then its automatic watering, temperature, and light systems do the work for you all the way until harvesting time. There is a huge benefit of having a completely controlled enclosed environment, you won’t have to open the air tight container at all during the grow. It even has EC and PH sensors to make sure your plants get the extra nutrients you want. Pretty easy right?
But wait there’s more!
Seedo’s new technology comes with a cool phone app to control all of your settings remotely. The app allows you to watch your plants in real time through the tiny camera inside the grow box. A notification will be sent to your phone if anything goes wrong during the growing process, making it easy to monitor without disturbing the ecosystem inside. There is a suggested grow conditions feature, but the more advanced gardeners can switch it to manual and customize all the previously listed conditions. Just like the fit bit and other new app connected technologies, you will be able to upload your results online. This could create good networks of people helping each other through trial and error, with accurate data.
What kind of plants can be grown?
According to the Seedo labs website there is a huge list of plants that can be successfully grown. Here are some (not all) examples of what you can grow.
