Most people say that they would love to have a little green patch in their homes and that they would love to grow a few herbs for their kitchen themselves but cannot due to the lack of gardening know how. The few people who try to grow herbs in pots at home without basic knowledge and practical experience of how to take care of plants often end up with dead or diseased plants and are discouraged from trying home gardening. But the new Click & Grow Smartpot aims at making gardening convenient and easy for everyone.
The state-of-the-art planter is designed to allow almost anyone, even people with no knowledge of how to take care of plants, grow their own plants, veggies and herbs without any hassle. The Smartpot comes laced with a bunch of sensors, special software and microprocessors that allow the planter to sense the plant’s needs automatically and respond to it independently allowing it to grow healthily even without the owner putting any effort towards its care.
The smart flowerpot does not need any extra care, fertilizing or watering. To grow a plant using the Click & Grow Smartpot, a user simply has to purchase the Starter Kit which includes a seed herb cartridge, instructions, a germination lens, seeds and a pot, add fresh water to the planter, add the seed and nutrient cartridge and place the planter near a window, on the balcony, a place with plenty of natural daylight or even a place that is well illuminated.
The planter will then automatically sense the plants needs and care for it as and when needed. The Click & Grow Smartpot measures 8" long x 8" wide x 3" tall, is made from polypropylene plastic and runs on four AA batteries. The smart planter can be purchased from the manufacturer’s website with prices starting at $19.90.
