Grobo vs. Mary.ag | Grow Box Comparison
Which system is right for you?
What are the benefits of home growing?
The benefits of home growing are infinite. Growing cannabis at home allows you to choose any strain you like, produce higher quality yields and know exactly what goes into it and who's hands it has passed though. We are going to uncover the key differences between the Grobo and Mary.ag grow boxes.
The Grobo costs between $1999-$2999 depending on which unit you choose. Shipping is also free. Included with the Grobo Solid and Premium is everything you need for your first grow. The Grobo grow kit comes with a set of each nutrient bottle, a coco pod and a carbon filter. Grobo also offers several products not included with the grow box to make your experience even easier, such as drying racks, so you can dry your plant directly in the unit when it's finished growing.
Mary.ag costs $1099 and shipping costs $100+. Along with the grow unit itself, Mary.ag comes with its own grow kit. In the grow kit is a grow pod, carbon filter, and the powdered nutrients required for the first grow.
How long until I receive my grow box?
Grobo has all models in stock, and customers are happily receiving their grow boxes daily.
Mary.ag does not have their product in stock, it's on backorder. At this moment in time you can only make a down deposit of $149 CAD. You are looking at waiting 3+ months to receive your grow unit.
Ease of Use.
Grobo has a highly automated system. When you add water, the system uses a pH sensor and an electrical conductivity (EC) sensor to test the water. It can figure out if you're using tap water, reverse osmosis (RO) water, distilled water, or even DO water.
Mary.ag is less automated than the Grobo. With Mary.ag, you have to manually dose nutrients weekly and monitor the pH and EC. The app will remind you to complete these tasks, but it's all on you to get them done.
Unmatched Customer Support.
Grobo offers 6 day customer support and the "We are here for you" promise. This means that Grobo will do everything they can to make sure you are content with your grow box, and that you are able to grow successful plants. Grobo is happy to chat with you over the phone or by email, the choice is yours.
Grobo recently released the Grobo Start which is designed for germinating seeds. The Grobo Start has 3 slots for starting seeds and allows you to effortlessly move your seedling from the Grobo Start to the Grobo Premium or Solid. The Grobo Start has a companion app app so you can monitor all your plants from one location. The Grobo Start allows you to save 3-4 weeks on each grow, allowing you to grow (and yield) more cannabis each year.
At this time, Mary.ag only has the one grow system.
How Much Are Supplies?
Grobo offers a lower monthly costs than Mary.ag. A bonus with Grobo is you also get more grow space. The shape of the grow box allows larger plants to be grown in the unit, resulting in a higher yield per harvest. Additionally, Grobo offers an iOS, Android and web app so you can access your plants from any device.
