Grow Plants with no Soil using LEDs and Nutrient Mists

at 5:08 am. Filed under Cool Gadgets


I am looking forward to the day that we can grow fresh vegetables in a small machine that takes a bit of room in the kitchen. By looking at this technology by Gabriela Mombach it may not be far fetched.

"By designer Gabriela Mombach, the Broto Domestic Greenhouse grows plants through aeroponics (in which nutrient mists replace soil) while constantly measuring pH, temperature, nutrients, and humidity. A row of LEDs support photosynthesis while keeping the pot’s handle cool to the touch."


There special that useful you with you take one cialis . As might already we be at big of and which probably...

    this is nothing comparing to my weed grow-closet and my friend grow-refrigerator

    hey therian your comment epitomizes our wasteful ways. unless by ‘this’ you meant:

    “The wasted energy of ‘this'”

  3. Polaczek Says:

    therian, I was thinking the same thing!
    Maybe this will revolutionize grow-ops, instead of using those huge-ass kW lights, they’ll use LED’s. Technology is beautiful!

  4. The voice in your head Says:

    Or hell, maybe this sort of technology could help end world hunger by enabling the growing of food in places where it was once impossible. But nah, let’s focus on drugs.

    OK, the comment system removed my [/sarcasm] tag from the end of that post. >_>

    It would make a HUGE HUGE difference if the handle could go up and down like the AeroGarden, http://www.Aerogrow.com/ .
    Now the question is how many cool to the touch , low voltage , high output , Red and Blue light spectrum Leds would it take to get 1,000 Watts.
    Hmmm_ Still cheaper to go High Pressure Sodium and Metal Halide.__

  7. Trossen is dead Says:

    I like how there are Red and Blue LEDs in the handle. They got it backwards though. There should be more Red LEDs then Blu’. Red Spectrum promotes growth while Blu’ promotes Bloom or Flower stage. Just Like the Natural Sunlight during the Spring and Summer seasons. ;D

  8. Polaczek Says:

    The point is that you wouldn’t have to go 1000W, you’d just have to figure out what the equivalent output of UV is from your sodium bulb and find how many LED’s you need for that.

    Whatever color is needed, the point is that LED’s can do it more efficiently then traditional lighting methods. And, don’t plants need UV to carry out photosynthesis?

  9. Trent Wolodko Says:

    Hmmmm, wonder what the IR signature and power consumption of an array of these things would look like, you know, wanna grow a lot of uhh, basil. Yeah, that’s right basil.

  10. Kitchen Accessories Says:

    A great product, Best option for people who like to grow plants in their flats.

    Thanks for posting
