Freshly grown fruit, vegetables and herbs are almost always better than what's available at the local supermarket, and the Grobo makes it easy to get that freshness without even having to set foot outside. Green thumbs love the act of gardening, but busy schedules or a lack of yard space can make gardening an unrealistic endeavor. The Grobo is an indoor gardening machine with an app-based interface, letting consumers garden with the touch of a button.

To use the Grobo, consumers can buy plant seeds from any gardening shop as well as nutrients and the soil they need. Then all they need to do is put the materials in the Grobo, add water and monitor their plants' progress through the Grobo app. The machine will automatically apply the correct amount of "sunlight" to its plants via LEDs and the app will notify consumers when the Grobo needs a water refill.
