One of the fastest, and most efficient way to grow plants — you know, like carrots, tomatoes, flowers, and cannabis — is hydroponics. The problem that the Average Joe and Jane face, however, is how complicated and time consuming the process can be. It is difficult to balance the nutrients correctly, monitor lighting, and create the ideal conditions for plants to grow and thrive.
Luckily for us, the folks at Cloudponics have created the GroBox -a fully automated growing system that allows users to control conditions such as light, humidity, temperature, nutrient control and watering, PH levels and more – all from an app on your phone.
With the app, you can set schedules inside the unit, set reminders, adjust levels and even water your plants for up to three weeks, from anywhere in the world that has an Internet connection. The GroBox is secure and odor-protected, and promises that in three months you can have up to eight ounces of high-quality medicine.
The system is controlled by the GroPro – a Cloudponics-built controller which uses “grow recipes” which are specific growing conditions tailored toward each individual strain – meaning that an indica would have different growing conditions than a sativa. This is information which the novice farmer may not be aware of, nor have the necessary time to monitor these conditions consistently on their own.
The cabinet itself, which is about the size of a refrigerator, is designed to make home growing sexy. Instead of a bunch of unsightly wires and tubing the all-in-one design of the box allows for the GroBox to be a statement piece. The box comes with a fan, LED lighting and a growing tray which houses up to six plants. Setup requires syncing the app to the box via Wi-Fi, filling the water trays and connecting the nutrient hoses.
The Cloudponics app also gives you the ability to search crowdsourced database of plant grow recipes, which allows you to give your specific plant the ideal conditions to thrive, a database you can contribute to with your own results.
