Transform Your Home into an Oasis with This Smart Garden Technology
There is nothing more nutritious and healthier than the vegetables that are grown in a home garden.
Eating such food could be the most satisfying experience for health-conscious people because whatever they will grow and consume will be 100 percent organic, pesticide-free, and fresh.
However, not everybody has enough space in their house to set up a vegetable garden. Even if space is not the problem, most of us don’t grow edibles because we don’t have the knowledge or the time to take care of them.
Well, what if we tell you that you neither need space nor any extra knowledge or time, still you can have a home garden where you can grow fresh vegetables. This has been made possible by Vahaa, a smart portable garden that was recently unveiled at CES 2023.
Vahaa comes with in-built smart irrigation, and smart lighting systems. All you need to do is place it in your kitchen or any other place of your choice inside your home, and soon you will see saplings growing inside it. The saplings will further grow into plants that will give out vegetables all around the year.
The smart garden also comes with an IoT-powered Vahaa mobile application that keeps you updated about your plants and garden.
The app sends you personalized notifications, monitors the temperature and humidity conditions inside the garden, ensures optimum growth of the plants, and even recommends recipes that you can make from your garden’s yield.
Currently, a user can grow vegetables like parsley, green curry lettuce, rainbow chard, peppermint, red lettuce, salanova, and basil using Vahaa smart garden. The company website mentions that soon users will also be able to grow oregano, tomato, and red chilly.
The smart garden uses a pesticide-free and soil-less cultivation method to support plant growth. It comes with three lighting modes for three different stages of a plant – seeding mode for the seeds and new saplings, growth mode for young plants, and fruiting mode when plants are giving out fruits or vegetables.
The mobile application notifies a user to change the light mode in their garden when needed. This way a user need not worry about anything.
The size of the Vahaa smart garden is 40x16x14 cm and a user can easily grow six to 18 plants at once. It’s also energy-efficient and consumes only about 10 kWh of power in an entire month. Moreover, the garden also supports wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Interestingly, it’s already available on some online marketplaces at USD 245. So if you want a smart garden of your own, forget not to try Vahaa.
