Tips To Make Your Indoor Garden A Success

Nothing is more satisfying than growing your own herbs, vegetables, or fruit, but being able to do it in the comfort of your own home is even better. Freshness is just steps away when using the abby automated grow box, the easiest and most convenient way to grow your own indoor garden.

1. Use Proper Soil and Nutrients

You may be tempted to plant your new vegetables or herbs in soil from outside. After all, that's where most plants grow, right? Actually, you could be introducing harmful pests to your plant by using just any old dirt from outside. Also, such dirt tends to clump, creating an unfriendly environment for your plant by not giving it room to grow its roots. Fortunately, abby takes care of all your plant's nutritious needs. Your subscription includes handy prepackaged nutrients and fertilizer that need to be added once per week. Just drop them in the designated spots and abby will do the rest. You'll never have to worry about your plant's health with abby.

2. Grow the Right Kinds of Plants

While you can grow many different types of plants with abby, not all are suitable because there isn't enough room. These include corn, ocra, and some tomatoes, which can grow over six feet tall. Better choices are peppers, low-hanging tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, almost any herb, and low-hanging fruits such as strawberries. Talk to your local garden center to find out what other types of fresh fruits and vegetables to use with abby.

3. Give Your Plant the Perfect Amount of Light

Lighting is crucial to the health of most plants. Too little and it can't photosynthesize. Too much and it could burn the leaves. Fortunately, abby always provides the perfect amount of light for your plant and even adjusts for day and night cycles so you'll never have to give it a thought. abby comes installed with Samsung's state-of-the-art LM301H lighting system that creates the perfect indoor environment. Never worry about positioning your plants in the right window of your home again.

4. Change the Water Regularly

You'll need to change the water once per week when using abby. All you'll need is an empty container. Unhook the attached hose and let abby know it's time to change the water, which will be automatically pumped into the container until the tank is empty. Then you can add fresh water to the tank, which abby will circulate regularly so that it doesn't become stagnant. Don't forget to add new nutrient packets as well. That's all there is to it! Indoor gardening made easy.

5. Create the Right Climate

Providing your plant with the perfect climate conditions can be difficult and stressful. But if you haven't guessed by now, abby will do this for you automatically! Sensors inside abby constantly monitor the indoor climate and make all the necessary adjustments. No need for any extra climate control devices such as space heaters or indoor humidifiers. Plus, you'll never have to worry if your air conditioner is set too low. abby will always have the perfect temperature inside.

6. Keep Your Plants Free of Pests

There's nothing worse than finding that your indoor garden is under attack by harmful pests, such as bugs or microscopic organisms. Talk about ruining your day! Okay, so by now you've probably guessed, but it bears confirmation... abby keeps your plants pest free with air filters that keep the bad things out while only letting fresh air inside. Still, it's important to be vigilant when introducing anything new inside abby. Make sure that any new plant is free of anything harmful. The last thing you want to do is use a dangerous pesticide on your plant.
