But the company is well aware that the herb that little Seedo will most be responsible for growing, is cannabis.
Seedo then uses its own algorithm to implement the ideal water, fertilizer, and temperature levels for whatever you are growings in order to maximize its yield.
It can grow other things too but it’s safe to say, most people are using Seedo to grow weed.
The device can grow up to five plants at once, and completely takes over the role of expert gardener, managing climate control, lighting and nutrient levels and thus is able to produce a significantly higher yield than more modest, traditional operations.
A seed is placed in a nutrient-rich container (that will last for the plant’s growing cycle) and then placed inside Seedo who will take care of the rest.
In August, Seedo announced that they had partnered with Namaste Technologies, a leading online cannabis retailer to introduce the devices to the European market.
Marijuana enthusiasts are often passionate about many things, including their own hands and reflection, in addition to smoking the good stuff. But attention to detail generally isn’t one of their fortes, thusly process-oriented tasks, say at-home horticulture experimentation, can suffer at their hands.
A state-of-the-art system that requires almost no knowledge of nutrients, grow cycles or lighting needs, the Seedo relies on a patent-pending LED adjustment system that monitors plant growth and automatically moves the lights accordingly. If changes must be made to the preselected grow plan, users can adjust settings in the self-sufficient unit via a connected app.
Airtight with built-in CO2 cartridges and A/C so there’s hardly a need to open the unit to let pests in or smells out, the interior of the Seedo can be monitored remotely via a built-in HD camera.
Combating forgetfulness in home botany adventures: the Seedo — basically a set it and forget it hydroponics grower.
Just a hunch though …
Seedo produces the world’s first fully automated intelligent hydroponic indoor grow system for cannabis as well as other herbs and vegetables. No prior knowledge or experience is needed to start growing plants in Seedo’s device, as the system completely self-grows plants from seed to flower — completely sealed off from pests and plant diseases, which also means the crops are pesticide-free.
To meet the growing demand of their automatic grow system, Seedo recently opened up a customer service center and logistics warehouse in the Netherlands that now serves as its European distribution hub.
How the Technology Works
Seedo’s autonomous growing device, which looks similar to a mini-fridge, features built-in carbon filters, automated air conditioning, a patent-pending full spectrum LED lighting system that auto-adjusts to maintain optimal distance from growing plants, as well as a mineral delivery system, built-in cartridges for releasing CO2 during photosynthesis, and an internal camera for monitoring without intervention. Once plants are fully grown and ready to be harvested, the Seedo container turns into a smart post-harvest drying system as well.
At the end of March 2019, Seedo also announced a partnership with Kibbutz Dan in northern Israel to develop fully automated commercial cannabis farms within shipping containers.
The system pairs with a smartphone app that both tracks the progress of the plants as they grow and monitors the conditions in which they’re developing to optimize growth. Should anything go wrong, a notification will automatically be sent to the user’s phone alerting them of the issue.
