About Grobo.


It’s never been more important to control what you consume and to know what’s in your food and medicine. But indoor growing and getting the correct growing parameters is difficult, especially for busy professionals.


 Grobo makes it simple with an easy-to-use hydroponic grow box called the Grobo One. It is a completely automated growing system that takes the guesswork out of growing cannabis—the hard work is taken care of, and the fun parts are left for you—it’s like growing on autopilot. It’s beautifully designed and fits seamlessly into people’s homes and lives.
