Nano Garden – Indoor Hydroponic Garden
I am a huge fan of Hydroponics, I myself have one at home and I love it. It is very cool to see plants growing in front of you, inch by inch. And I found the germination rate is higher compared to traditional soil-based. While I was at CES this year, I came across this beautiful indoor garden that is aquaponic based. Meet Nano Garden by Pret a Pousser.
Nano is a compact indoor garden made for home or office. With its elegant design, Nano is a great home decor. There are so many indoor garden systems out there but what I like the most with Nano is its cool design. The build quality is amazing. You would know this if you were to get your hands on the gadget. The product comes in different colors too.
As I mentioned before, Nano is a hydroponic garden. No soil, no nutrient solution, just water. The one I have at home needs nutrient solution once in a while but since Nano comes with a pod, everything is included in it. You will have to add the water on top once every 4 weeks.
The pod includes seed, nutrients and a growing medium. Each pod costs between $4 and $8 and can be purchased from the same company. But if you don’t want to spend money on these pods, you can also grow in your own way. You just have to add nutrients and other stuff manually. The company does not recommend this way.
There are three holes on the pod and all three contain the same seed. This type of design gives you that thick shrub look when the pants are grown up.
Moreover, Nano connects to your phone and they have an app to monitor the device and change light settings. Depending on what plant you are growing, the app can automatically control the light intensity and duration. Also, the lights are height adjustable. Nano Garden is USB powered so you can easily power it with just a power bank.
You can find more info on the product here. It is currently available in the European market and will be available in the US soon. They also sell another garden named Lilo which is made for the kitchen. You can find that on their website too.
