Marijuana enthusiasts are often passionate about many things, including their own hands and reflection, in addition to smoking the good stuff. But attention to detail generally isn’t one of their fortes, thusly process-oriented tasks, say at-home horticulture experimentation, can suffer at their hands.

Combating forgetfulness in home botany adventures: the Seedo — basically a set it and forget it hydroponics grower.

Although the device can technically be used to grow other things like peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, parsley, oregano and mint, we’re pretty sure that its automated post-harvest drying system is mainly designed for use with the devil’s lettuce.

Just a hunch though …

Airtight with built-in CO2 cartridges and A/C so there’s hardly a need to open the unit to let pests in or smells out, the interior of the Seedo can be monitored remotely via a built-in HD camera.

Seedo’s autonomous growing device, which looks similar to a mini-fridge, features built-in carbon filters, automated air conditioning, a patent-pending full spectrum LED lighting system that auto-adjusts to maintain optimal distance from growing plants, as well as a mineral delivery system, built-in cartridges for releasing CO2 during photosynthesis, and an internal camera for monitoring without intervention. Once plants are fully grown and ready to be harvested, the Seedo container turns into a smart post-harvest drying system as well.

On top of applying their technology towards containers for commercial scale at Kibbutz Dan in Israel, Seedo is positioning themselves to keep up their momentum of global growth with strategic partnerships, including with retail innovation firm OutForm. This firm has strong ties with large retailers like Home Depot, Best Buy, and Bed Bath & Beyond — and Seedo has aspirations to potentially introduce their hydroponic grow systems across the U.S. through these retail giants.

How the Technology Works

“Seedo's hermetically sealed systems are controlled and managed by artificial intelligence software, which analyzes the plant's development and takes actions to optimize growing parameters based on its performance,” said Seedo CEO Zohar Levy. “Simply set a growth plan for your particular plant species and sit back and let it grow.”

Seedo produces the world’s first fully automated intelligent hydroponic indoor grow system for cannabis as well as other herbs and vegetables. No prior knowledge or experience is needed to start growing plants in Seedo’s device, as the system completely self-grows plants from seed to flower — completely sealed off from pests and plant diseases, which also means the crops are pesticide-free.

The system pairs with a smartphone app that both tracks the progress of the plants as they grow and monitors the conditions in which they’re developing to optimize growth. Should anything go wrong, a notification will automatically be sent to the user’s phone alerting them of the issue.
