Combining two unlikely technologies, this indoor growing system marries hydroponics and computers to create a super-easy-to-use tabletop garden.
The Aerogrow is a neat gizmo that I’ve been hearing about on the radio since the Boulder, Colorado company’s stock went public. It’s basically a next-generation hyrdoponic growing system that you can use to raise your own fresh herbs or other small plants right on your table. Unlike most hydroponic grow systems, though, it’s very easy to setup and maintain thanks to the engineered nutrients and seeds, as well as the computer which maintains the environment and alerts you to things that need your attention.
It’s a neat combination of tech and “earthy” interests, which is a combination you don’t find everyday. The Aerogrow system comes with the planting unit, a light, the control center, and everything else you need to get growing. Now, you can actually cook with fresh herbs (and yes, they do taste much better than the dried crap in the metal cans) without breaking the bank. Well, other than the $150 you’ll have to break-out to buy the Aerogrow at least.
And, for those who’re no doubt thinking of growing something else: the lamp is too small, so enjoy your fresh oregano and parsley 😉
