Niwa is a brilliant home gardening system that involves two parts: a hydroponic gardening hub and an app that controls what goes on in that environment.
The system is immensely powerful and filled with options that allow adjustments to the heat, water, lighting and humidity levels inside the garden, but Niwa makes it incredibly simple to get started, even if you don't consider yourself to have a green thumb in the slightest. On the app, you'll be prompted to choose what kind of plant, fruit or vegetable you intend to grow and throughout the process, Niwa asks questions like "Can you see flowers?" and the system will respond and adjust to ensure that growths continue.
Niwa has just launched on Kickstarter and early bird supporters can nab a Niwa or a Mini Niwa at a special price.
