During a vacation about ten years ago, I went out for 7 days and had fun while something unfortunate happened. All of my plants at home died due to lack of water …
I used my expertise and talents as a plant enthusiast and maker to create a DIY gadget that could automatically irrigate flowers using Arduino. I shared it on instructables, a website where people can share their DIY projects. Surprisingly, it went viral and garnered a lot of attention and appreciation. The community’s desire for an autonomous watering system inspired and encouraged me significantly.
This is a different type of smart gardening compared to the others we have seen before like MULTO, Nokus Canvas and ELIoT. The GrowCube is a DIY tool for those who want to fiddle with their own watering system.
If you prefer a system that just works right out of the box, check out the other products we mentioned and one might just fit your home.
The GrowCube brand is owned by Shenzhen Elecrow Limited. The Elecrow brand is in turn owned by Shenzhen Yikenuo Technology Development Co, Ltd. Elecrow owns other brands such as CrowPI, CrowPI2 and CrowBits that target the STEM education market.
The company is not in Incheon, South Korea as stated in its Kickstarter creator profile, or Hong Kong as stated in the campaign page.
