LED grow lights are the latest on the market today. Extremely energy-efficient, they have an ultra-low heat output and offer a plant-friendly light spectrum range. The lamp can be raised or lowered depending on the height of the plant so as to provide sufficient intensity required for proper growth.

Another element of growing plants indoors is water, and it is something that has to be mastered by experience. Fear not with EcoDuino, designed to maintain the right amount of moisture for growth if you are growing plants through traditional methods.

A series of microcontrollers, sensors and actuators collect data such as temperature, humidity, light intensity and water your plants automatically when they are thirsty, or at predetermined intervals. The only thing you need to do is manage your EcoDuino system through a regular computer with a graphic user interface.

Grow Tent


Grow tents let you have fresh produce year-round by creating an appropriate environment for your indoor garden. While a basic grow tent allows you to control the light and humidity, it can be expanded with other options to control temperature to replicating different climates inside a grow tent

Grow tents often come with a reflective material inside to reflect and intensify the light, ensuring that plants receive adequate light even when stacked on top of each other. A grow tent can also be fitted with a carbon air cleaner which scrubs air of any fertilizer odour before it gets out of the tent.
