But the company is well aware that the herb that little Seedo will most be responsible for growing, is cannabis.
Seedo then uses its own algorithm to implement the ideal water, fertilizer, and temperature levels for whatever you are growings in order to maximize its yield.
It can grow other things too but it’s safe to say, most people are using Seedo to grow weed.
Founded in 2015, the Israeli AgriTech firm’s self-contained device generates “high yields of lab-grade, pesticide-free herbs, and vegetables,” states Seedo’s website.
The airtight, stackable containers will allow cultivators to optimize land-use and reduce the environmental footprint of their farming operations.
To optimize the growth process, Seedo gathers data about the various plants the units grow and uploads it to a data cloud without including any details about the units owners.
What springs to mind when you think of CO2? Global Warming is probably pretty high on the list. One of the main causes of global warming and the effect it’s having on our earth is the rise of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.
The beauty of plants (one of many), is that they absorb harmful CO2 and use it to photosynthesize to produce energy, oxygen and plant cells. This is why forests and plants are known as ‘Green Lungs’, because they’re inhaling CO2 and giving us the oxygen that we breathe.
CO2 isn’t a magic formula that you can just increase and automatically see a bigger yield and faster growth. As with everything, it takes expertise and knowledge of how to use it. You’ll need to consider positioning, the right amount of light and timing.
The use of CO2 for most home growers, particularly if you’re just starting out, can be expensive (think hundreds of dollars for CO2 equipment alone!). But the obstacles don’t stop there. Actually putting the equipment together and using it effectively for CO2 enrichment is no easy task. In fact, it could end up being a complete waste of time and money.
