Grow a Garden in Your Kitchen With a Futuristic Wall Farms
You don't need a lot of space and even a green thumb for gardening success. That's the idea behind the Wall Farms, kits from San Francisco-based company Click & Grow that allow customers to keep a garden inside their home when space is limited outside, according to Engadget.
The futuristic-looking cabinets are designed to cultivate homegrown fruits, vegetables, flowers, and herbs indoors—all in a low-maintenance way. Both varieties of the Wall Farms are powered by automated technology that doles out the perfect amount of oxygen, water, and nutrients, ensuring that each plant grows to its full potential with very little attention or management.
To get started, users just plug it in, plant seeds in the company’s “Smart Soil,” and fill its tank with water. According to the company, the Wall Farm will do the rest of the work, as it manages artificial sunlight, moisture, pH balance, and growth. And users can also track their garden’s growth with a smartphone app.
Each three-shelf unit will set you back about $799, while a two-shelf unit costs $199, along with the price of plant and solution refills, which are about $20 each. Click & Grow also sells smaller herb garden kits that use the same technology for $59.
