Grobo is the most straightforward product that offer customers the chance to grow fresh fruit, herbs, and vegetables in their own home with minimal effort. Grobo takes out the hard-work from growing. You simply fill its reservoirs with water and nutrients, drop some seeds into its base, and then hit a button on a connected app to start the growing process. A couple weeks later, you're ready to harvest.
The Grobo blends technology for growing by making use of sensors to monitor the condition of the plant, automatically adjusting its watering schedule, and then lets you know when it's ready to harvest. It's suitable for a range of crops — including tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, herbs, kale, and more.
If the user wants, the Grobo can offer automation in growing plants pretty much by itself. Seeds are placed in a growing medium made from recycled coconut husks, with the user telling the device what's been planted so it can regulate the delivery of water and nutrients. Sensors inside the Grobo monitor how much of this material is absorbed by the plant and measure its height, allowing the app to make adjustments to the growing schedule or alert the user if they need to intervene. LEDs inside mimic a full 18 hours of sunshine every day, while carbon filters can be turned to eliminate any odors created by the plants
Although Grobo provides a lot of automation, but there’s a lot you can do with it. If you want to learn how to grow better, in the app there are prompts at different phases of plant growth, saying things like: 'You should trim this part of the plant and if you do you'll get better results.'" Users can also program their own growing instructions into the app. The only real limitation on the Grobo is size, as you wouldn't be able to grow something like a watermelon, for example.
Buyers can be confident in their ability to grow plants with the Grobo, as it's technology has been tested its for more than two years now, growing hundreds of crops over that time. The ultimate aim for the Grobo's founder's, is to make technology like this commonplace, allowing more and more people to grow food at home.

The Grobo is the most automated system on the market. The pH level adjustment and nutrients dosing features save you lots of time.

When the system indicates that it isn’t at optimal growing conditions it automatically doses pH up or pH down to get it back to its perfect state.

When the system senses that the plant is low on food it automatically doses in nutrients, this means that your plant never goes hungry.
