Growing plants while on 'Vacation Mode'

If you grow your own food, whether indoors or outdoors, eventually, you face a problem. What happens when you are away from home for more than a couple of days? It might not be your fault if you return to dead or dying plants, but it is disappointing to throw out food that days earlier was the picture of health and flavor.

Now imagine going on vacation and returning home without being concerned that your garden has perished while you were relaxing in the sunshine. Vacation Mode with Gardyn gives customers the freedom to push the pause button on growing fresh food while away.

LED lights provide plants with the perfect light they need all day in any type of location. Gardyn’s LED lights provide the right amount of light the plants need for optimal growth. Secondly, the latest hydroponic innovations developed by Gardyn along with researchers at McGill University allow customers to grow plants vertically without soil.

This also means no clumpy roots as air and nutrient circulation act as an optimal base in yCubes for root systems to stay separated. This approach allows the plant to flourish while constantly cycling out fresh new plants individually. Finally, machine vision and Smart Gardyning Assistant Kelby make it possible to have the best “gardener” tending crops 24 hours a day. 

Plants keep growing but at a slower rate so they are still fresh and healthy when you return home, ready for the dinner table. Besides, even though Gardyn typically uses very little power, Vacation Mode cuts power consumption by a factor of four and water consumption by 3 times. You can always check in on your plants by viewing them through your app. Kelby monitors your plant growth whether you are at home or on vacation. Plant growth seamlessly accelerates back to the previous rate when you get home.
