I'm seeing a lot of in-home gardening products lately, targeted toward city dwellers that don't have much space or a backyard. Grove Ecosystem is a recent example. cc @msuster @lizco

@rrhoover Love that Ikea is in this space. I've been hacking this stuff together for years (rubbermaid boxes, aquarium pumps etc). (And been using the http://www.clickandgrow.com/ on my kitchen counter) It's great to see hydroponic stuff happen at scale. Sidebar: An interesting article/book would be how illicit marijuana high yield production techniques are being transferred to consumer indoor gardening.
@rrhoover I've always had my eye on getting one of these, but they're usually kickstarters, US based, or out of my price range. With IKEA in the space, I'll probably (finally) join in. Not as sexy as the Grove Ecosystem or Click and Grow system or many of the others out there, but at least this one's going to be UK based, and hopefully a good entry point to in-home gardening.
@shloky @rrhoover Huge Click & Grow fan - had mine for years. Funny note to your sidebar, a few years ago when Click & Grow updated their pods, they shared a video of them growing marijuana.
Would love to see @snoopdogg in this commercial
Look really cool. I wonder if it comes with glass windows as well so pets couldn't destroy them before harvesting
@_sergeh Totally my first thought as well!
Shut up and take my money! I find that so cool, that IKEA is always pushing forward to give customers what they will need in the future.
@tristancelebi Click & Grow has been doing this for years! I've had mine for ~4 years now and still love it! http://www.clickandgrow.com/
