About the GROW DUO

Can I use GROW Duo in the city?

Absolutely! GROW Duo can be used in any urban or suburban outdoor environment, including rooftops, balconies, terraces and backyards. The only requirement is a faucet or hose connection.

What comes with my GROW Duo order?

• 1 smart planter (26" x 14" x 16") that grows two plants side by side

• 2 GROW Kits (Salad Mix + Herb Mix) to get your garden going. You can also order additional vegetables through the marketplace in the GROW Duo app

• 1 bag of organic potting soil (2 cubic feet)

• 1 hose connector + water tube (10 feet) to connect to your outdoor faucet

• 2 AA batteries

Can I use GROW Duo indoors?

No, GROW Duo cannot be installed indoors. The planter needs to be outside in order to power the self-water feature with a constant hose connection and support the growth of larger sun-loving plants like beans and tomatoes. Also, because of its special root-supporting aerated design, the planter can occasionally drip.

Can I have more than 1 GROW Duo?

Yes! Up to 10 GROW Duos can be connected together while requiring only one water source. Even when linked, each planter will maintain its own independent water program, specific to the plants within it.  

How does it water itself?

The GROW Duo comes equipped with multiple sensors: one at the bottom which measures soil moisture and temperature and a few in the planter’s lip which track light and air temperature. We use environmental data points from these sensors as well as data on the specific needs of the plants growing in your GROW Duo to ensure your garden gets just the right amount of water at all times. Because we take real-time measurements of water levels and deliver only what’s necessary directly to your plants’ roots, we never underwater or waste water.

Is GROW Duo eco-friendly?

The GROW Duo is energy efficient and environmentally conscious by design. It is a great water-saving solution for gardeners looking for drought-friendly options. All of the gardening materials, from soil to seeds and nutrients, are organic and non-GMO. Also the GROW Duo requires very little power – just 2 AA batteries, which come included, keep the planter going for several growing seasons.

How long does it take to set up the GROW Duo?

Your GROW Duo can be ready for planting in under ten minutes. Set-up is just three easy steps: connect the planter to your water source, sync the planter with our GROW app, and then simply add your soil and seeds!

What is the GROW Duo made of? Is it safe for the environment?

The GROW Duo is made of BPA-free polypropylene plastic. All the plastics used in the planter meet the National Science Foundation’s requirements for food safety and are designed for durability to last season after season. This high quality material means that your GROW Duo will never warp or bevel.

Can I use it without a hose or faucet?

No, the GROW Duo must have a constant hose connection.

How can I connect the GROW Duo and still use my hose?
