A state-of-the-art system that requires almost no knowledge of nutrients, grow cycles or lighting needs, the Seedo relies on a patent-pending LED adjustment system that monitors plant growth and automatically moves the lights accordingly. If changes must be made to the preselected grow plan, users can adjust settings in the self-sufficient unit via a connected app.

Just a hunch though …
Airtight with built-in CO2 cartridges and A/C so there’s hardly a need to open the unit to let pests in or smells out, the interior of the Seedo can be monitored remotely via a built-in HD camera.
Although the device can technically be used to grow other things like peppers, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, parsley, oregano and mint, we’re pretty sure that its automated post-harvest drying system is mainly designed for use with the devil’s lettuce.
Seedo has an app that lets you watch your weed grow — in high definition no less. It also sends notifications, has a controller and the option to unlock the device from your smartphone.
“The Seedo, it’s really a magical process,” said Brian, one of Seedo’s first pre-sale customers to complete a grow cycle. “I hit a button on my cell phone, close the door and believe it or not, 12 weeks later there are buds to harvest… you get exactly what you want, what can be simpler?”
A recent trial run of Seedo found that “Individual robots were able to produce between 100-120 grams of dried bud in just 90 days, giving clients an excellent product grown without using pesticide.”
How it works
To optimize the growth process, Seedo gathers data about the various plants the units grow and uploads it to a data cloud without including any details about the units owners.
In fact, the device’s impressive growing abilities have been translated from the knowledge of the company’s founder, retired expert cannabis grower Yaakov Hai.
The device can grow up to five plants at once, and completely takes over the role of expert gardener, managing climate control, lighting and nutrient levels and thus is able to produce a significantly higher yield than more modest, traditional operations.
But the company is well aware that the herb that little Seedo will most be responsible for growing, is cannabis.
How Can Seedo Help?
The beauty of plants (one of many), is that they absorb harmful CO2 and use it to photosynthesize to produce energy, oxygen and plant cells. This is why forests and plants are known as ‘Green Lungs’, because they’re inhaling CO2 and giving us the oxygen that we breathe.
What springs to mind when you think of CO2? Global Warming is probably pretty high on the list. One of the main causes of global warming and the effect it’s having on our earth is the rise of CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere.
CO2 isn’t a magic formula that you can just increase and automatically see a bigger yield and faster growth. As with everything, it takes expertise and knowledge of how to use it. You’ll need to consider positioning, the right amount of light and timing.
