Hydro Grow Logo

Hydro Grow LLC provides users with an automated hydroponic appliance capable of alleviating their dependence on a grocery store for most produce continuously throughout the year, using 95% less water, and an accelerated growth rate two-to-three times the speed of traditional farming methods. Memberships would provide a constant supply of seed cups (similar to Keurig k-cups) that would allow the user to have the highest quality possible produce within their home. Although the system would quickly break even for the consumer, it also keeps produce alive until the moment it is consumed, adding at least two weeks of shelf life to the produce.
