How does it work?
Both the Grobo and the Cloudponics GroBox use an app based system and grow recipes to grow your plants for you. One grow box, however, is more advanced than the other. Cloudponics grow box will only turn its lights on or off to mimic night and day. The Grobo's full spectrum lighting system, on the other hand, can adjust itself to fit the needs of your plant and its growing stage. Grobo's lighting also ensures that your plant grows most effectively within the available space. Both systems can check the water and administer doses of nutrients automatically. Their apps will also track the water level and temperature in the unit. So, while both units are automated, the Grobo is more advanced and offers more features.
