Gardyn’s intelligent in-app assistant, Kelby, lets you know when your plants need a little TLC or when they’re ready to harvest.
Gardyn is an indoor gardening tool with AI technology that allows you to grow fresh produce (no green thumb required). The vertical inner garden consists of a base and three pillars in which the seed pods labeled “yCubes” are placed. The bowl-like seed cubes can be ordered via the Gardyn app. Once shipped, Kelby, Gardyn’s intelligent in-app assistant, will notify you when the plants need water and sunlight and when it’s time to harvest your crops. There is also a 6 gallon water reservoir and pump in the base that is responsible for watering the seeds, as well as two LED grow lights that mimic the sun for optimal growth.
