Today Grobo launched their new product, an easy-to-use home growing system that takes the guesswork out of successfully growing small crops of high quality food and medicine, and puts users in charge of what they consume. It is now available for pre-orders via the company’s website.
“All you have to do is plant your seeds in the organic growing medium and insert the included nutrient capsules,” said Co-Founder Bjorn Dawson. “Grobo’s tech then monitors and adjusts your plant’s environment to ensure it has the perfect amount of light, water and nutrients. You can also monitor and adjust all of this yourself with the app.”
- Customizable wavelength/spectrum of 63 LEDs (color and intensity) to promote compact and dense plant growth
- Activated charcoal (carbon) filter to eliminate any smells produced by the plant
- Glass front panel that transitions from clear to opaque to ensure optimal light/dark ratio
- App with growing recipes and online community where users can share tips and ask questions
Grobo Co-Founders Dawson and Chris Thiele are passionate about growing. The Canadian-based team was founded in 2014 on a mission to develop a home system for producing high quality food all year round. Then, after hearing from multiple medicinal cannabis patients who wanted a system like Grobo to help take the work out of growing the medicine that they rely on, the team pivoted towards helping both food growers and the medicinal cannabis market. Today, Grobo is committed to ensuring that medicinal cannabis patients are able to access and grow a consistent, high quality supply of medication to improve their quality of life. The company is also supportive of users within legal recreational states who have the right to grow.
“It can be hard and impractical to grow yourself.” Thiele said. “Grobo minimizes the time, space and knowledge required to grow fresh food and medicine so you spend less time gardening, and more time enjoying your plants.”
Pre-orders will be available on the Grobo website for $899 USD for the first 30 days, a 30% discount. The estimated delivery date is April 2017.
