Smart Herb Garden Needs No Sun or Soil

 |  |  |  |  March 28, 2013

I’m not a big fan of growing stuff, mostly because I kill pretty much everything I’ve ever plant. I always water them too much or too little and eventually my plants turn dead and dry or bloated and moldy. I think I might be able to grow something using the Smart Herb Garden though.


This thing uses modern technology to grow herbs and a few vegetables right in your kitchen. You don’t have to remember to move it to the sun every now and then because it has its own LED growing lamp. All you have to do is snap in the your plant cartridges, fill the water reservoir, and the Smart Herb Garden does all the heavy lifting for you.

It doesn’t even use dirt, it has some sort of nanotech material specifically engineered to supply the plant roots with just the right amount of oxygen, water, and nutrients. The initial set comes with 3 plant cartridges: basil, lemon balm and thyme, but they plan on offering more plants down the road.

A pledge of $39(USD) or more over on Kickstarter will get you your very own smart garden by September, 2013.
