The LeGrow was named in a quirky manner after its inspiration of modular blocks that we all remember and love from when we were younger. The only difference with this product design is you don’t necessarily build cities, cars, or buildings… you build your very own ecosystem!
This is a modular block garden and it aims to make the plant growing process a lot easier on the user by reducing your involvement with the whole process other than plugging the block into each other. LeGrow is available in a standard block size that are designed to fit plants perfectly and you can easily switch from your regular planters by just simply lifting the plant out and placing it in the plastic block. Typically, it would be used indoors, but I guess you could put them in your Florida room if you have one! Typically you would just go to Walmart or Home Depot or heck even the Dollar Store and buy one of those large decorative ceramic planter, but you still have to do the work yourself… that is why LeGrow is the best!
The blocks are equipped with water reservoir located on the bottom that keeps the soil ventilation at a good level and it measure the level of moisture too. Not only that, but it even comes with a humidifying unit that will let your little ecosystem feel like it’s actually an exotic forest with the haze that plants absolutely love. If you do not have any ambient sunlight available, the LeGrow lamp module works very well mimicking the sun light the plants would need. They actually are timed and switch on for 6 hours to ensure your plant life gets the photons it needs. The lamp and humidifier are able to connect through the low voltage electrical module, while also giving you 3 USB outlets for charging your devices.
The natural beauty that LeGrow encompasses isn’t just due to the fact that it really simplifies gardening, but also the beauty behind its simplicity. The blocks are for sale as sets, which allows you to endlessly customize your miniature forest to fit your homes space and taste! If you live in a one bedroom apartment, just make it a tall vertical set up, where as if you have all the room in the world, you could decorate however you choose that fits your personal taste. Not to mention, plants have calming effects on us humans. It’s called ‘Forest Bathing’ and it’s known universally for being used against anxiety and stress by allowing the human to absorb essential oils that plants give off in the air. Here is some information on Forest Bathing!
Created for those who love to work out in the garden, but can’t find the time to or possibly lack the skills, the LeGrow is for you. It’s seriously as easy as stacking cubes and then randomly filling the reservoir up with water. It itself keeps track of soil moisture, humidity levels, and sunlight, so all you have to do is watch the greenery unfold into its own little forest! Or, if you wanted to give it a true purpose, you could develop your own self-sustaining herb garden to spruce up your nightly meals!
