The Grobo is the most automated system on the market. The pH level adjustment and nutrients dosing features save you lots of time. The pH sensor in the water reservoir constantly monitor the pH levels in the water. When the system indicates that it isn’t at optimal growing conditions it automatically doses pH up or pH down to get it back to its perfect state. The grow boxes EC sensor is also constantly monitoring the systems nutrients levels. It knows exactly how much nutrients the plant needs. When the system senses that the plant is low on food it automatically doses in nutrients, this means that your plant never goes hungry.
These features stop you from having to constantly tend to the mundane task of balancing pH levels and dosing nutrients. Not having to do this severely cuts the amount of manual labour and upkeep necessary for your plant.
Grobo also provides you with a grow recipe list meaning that you can actually go through and choose from a list of plants and strains you want to grow ahead of time. This list tells you exactly how long it will take from the time you plant your seed till harvest meaning you know exactly when you get your final product. Each recipe on that list also has a pre-set optimal lighting schedule. That means that each specific strain has a tailored setting with tested success, high quality and the best yield possible.
