Affordable Self-Watering Planters

Pico is a Convenient Grow System That Uses a Telescopic Light

— November 9, 2020 — Art & Design
Pico is described as a "garden in a palm," due to the smart grow system's compact design that allows consumers to combine multiple planters together so that they can get fresh herbs at home. The planters are made to attach to anything, allowing consumers to create colorful displays on their walls, fridge, or almost any other surface.

With a telescopic grow light and self-watering functionality, Pico makes it easy to grow plants in any size of space. As the plants grow, the adjustable LED light can be extended so that they always gets the UV exposure they need The tiny planters also feature transparent windows, so users can see how their plants are doing and know when it's time to top up the water supply. Normally, Pico's planters only need to be topped up once a week, making the grow system great for those who like to travel, or just have a hard time remembering to keep up with plant care.
