1: I’m a strong advocate for the medical marijuana industry and am supportive of a patients “right to try.” Also, living in an urban setting, it’s not very easy to find a secluded little plot of land to call my own that would allow me to grow whatever vegetation I choose, even if there was, I’d be hard pressed to find a spot that would allow me to “plant and forget” my crops. Our sun is powerful, and our rains are vast. Those two things alone make it difficult to manage really any type of crop cultivation even if I had the time to invest my energy into it. Grobo checked off all the boxes for something as close to “Set it and forget it” as I can currently get.
2: I think I first learned of the Grobo via an Engadget article about a self sustaining grow unit. While I’m an advocate for Medical Marijuana, I’m also a tech enthusiast who loves getting the “newest” and “coolest” products before anyone else. The Grobo satiated all my needs and it was at a good price range to dive in. So, I stewed on it for a day and then pulled the trigger.
3: I’d def say your help documentation could use a little updating. I love the vids you’re producing and would love to see tons more of those. In an ideal scenario, I’d love to see a video tied to every help documentation article you have. Additionally, I think (I’m assuming you’re already doing this) but generating your help documentation based on user feedback needs to be done. I.E. How many questions have you fielded on just draining and filling alone? If my app told me that the water will never drain all the way, or fill to just a certain point, I’m sure you’d save some time in the long run as far as productivity would go. Of course other improvements you can make I’m sure you’ve heard as well. I. E. A camera on the inside, a drying rack, app improvement, more control of a recipe along with the transparency of what the recipe does, I’m sure you’ve heard it all.
One thing I’ll throw out that maybe you haven’t heard… I think it would be sick if you came out with a gun metal black version of the Grobo instead of the white. That would be cool as hell! Also, something that might be kind of nice… perhaps a little holding slot on the side of the unit. Maybe held by magnets or something, but I’m thinking it would be kinda neat to have a little something on the side of the unit to hold my additional nutrients that I have just sitting in a box waiting. Or maybe something like a little tin to put something pruning shears in. (Grobo branded pruning shears of course!). (I want 2% of the Grobo Shear profits since I came up with the idea!).
