LG says it will offer convenient all-in-one seed packages and a growth-monitoring app to help users cultivate nutrient-rich and flavorful greens inside their own homes. utilizing flexible 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. the 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 key component of the 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 core technology prevents algae growth and prevents unpleasant odors for a hygienic environment where natural herbs and leafy vegetables can grow.

the all-in-one seed packages contain peat moss and fertilizer, 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 from january 7-10 at booth #11100 in central hall of the las vegas convention center.
