Grow your own food with these handy gadgets!

By Kelvin Low      31 March 2020

Eating more fresh fruits and vegetables is one of the most important things you and your family can do to stay healthy. Naturally, most of us will head down to the nearest market to pick up fresh greens and fruits, but growing your own food will save you money in the long run, reduce your environmental impact and guarantee food safety.

Getting started is as easy as finding a nice sunny spot in your home, a small pot, potting mix, seeds and tender loving care. You can even grow them indoors with these gadgets designed to make indoor gardening as high-tech as your connected home can be. Plus, growing indoors means no obstruction to common areas, and no risk of people tampering with your precious shoots!

A soil-free hydroponic indoor planting pot, with the combination of a self-irrigation system and a special planting medium, promotes most plants and herbs to grow right in your home. It is also compact, easy to clean and you won’t have to deal with potting mixes or soils.

A self-contained kit is the easy way to get started into gardening. A wide variety of greens can be planted, ranging from tasty veggies to exotic tropical plants.

The Aerospring is a compact, automatic, self-watering vertical gardening system. Aeroponics is a branch of hydroponics that introduces more oxygen into the roots, which is said to promote growth and improve yields.

Proudly made in Singapore, the indoor kit comes with everything you need to get started, including exhaust fans and lights. It is capable of growing 27 plants at once.

Be it using soil or hydroponics, growing plants indoors requires light. Fortunately, lighting technology has progressed in leaps and bounds. While any light can be used to grow plants, the standard bulbs may not have enough color or offer the light spectrum which plants need.
