LG will debut its new appliance at CES 2020, its first campaign into the thriving indoor gardening trend.
This built-in column-style indoor garden uses advanced lighting, temperature and water control to let consumers grow greens year-round inside their kitchens!
LG says it will offer convenient all-in-one seed packages and a growth-monitoring app to help users grow nutrient-rich and flavourful greens inside their own homes.
Using adaptable modules, the appliance replicates optimal outdoor conditions by precisely matching the temperature inside the insulated cabinet with the time of day.
LED lights, forced air circulation and wick-based water management allow seeds to transform quickly into ingredients for delicious recipes and dishes. This advanced gardening system is capable of holding up to 24 all-in-one seed packages, enough for a family of four to enjoy the health benefits and culinary advantages of cooking with home-grown produce.
A core ingredient to this automated gardening solution is LG’s non-circulating water supply technology, which evenly distributes the exact amount of water that the plant packages require. This important technology prevents algae growth and stops unpleasant odours for a hygienic environment where natural herbs and leafy vegetables can be cultivated.
The all-in-one seed packages contain peat moss and fertiliser, making it easy for immediate planting. LG says initial packages will include 20 different varieties including romaine and other types of lettuce, arugula, chicory and basil.
LG’s first home gardening cultivator will be on display during CES 2020 in January in Las Vegas. CES is the world’s gathering place for all those who thrive on the business of consumer technologies.
