An automated watering solution allows these plants to thrive in an urban setting, like the technology used by Nasa to grow food in space.

Farming in Limited Spaces Through Smart Gardening
Lack of space in urban environments makes it even harder. However, this smart garden is bringing the window box into the modern age. Much like Nespresso coffee capsules, users “plant” this soil pod containing the seeds and all the nutrients which are released in sync with the plant’s life cycle.
Click and Grow introduced smart garden at a tech fair held in Berlin. It is an Estonian smart herb garden and wall farm. According to the company, the smart garden has a wick solution and a lamp. It manages the water drainage from the tank and replicates daylight time to allow the soil pod to flourish with zero effort from the users, respectively.
Additionally, the Estonia-based company claimed that it had tested a substantial amount of lighting solutions. All this to come up with the precise spectrum that expedites growth differing from 30 to 50 percent, subject to the type of plant. Users can expect up to three harvests for each soil pod cultivated.

For urban dwellers, a supply of fresh greens and herbs can be scarce. Just think about the limited resources available and challenging conditions in the city. For a plant to grow to its optimal, it requires enough water, light, and nutrients at all times. These basic requirements alone, without considering time and effort, already pose challenges to planters.
Users are given access to a fresh supply of vegetables and herbs with smart gardening. It provides each soil pod the water, oxygen, and nutrients it needs. Thus, city planters need not worry about their lack of time and resources. In addition, a smart garden is compact. Users can place it anywhere convenient without taking up more space than necessary at home.
