QBUX Urban Farming Gadget with Herbs

Think you can’t grow healthy greens and vegetables in your tiny (or not so tiny) city apartment? Think again. You don’t need to live in the suburbs or have a thumb that’s particularly green to enjoy perfect homegrown produce. With QBUX urban farming gadget, you can grow herbs, vegetables, and greens indoors even if your lighting isn’t perfect, and even if you’re terrible at keeping plants alive.

This urban gardening gadget has a cool design. It consists of a quirky planter, two high-quality grow lights, and two adjustable arms for the lights. You’ll also get the bulb-shaped, self-watering Orb that’s inspired by a 4,000-year-old irrigation technique. And as far as colors go, you’ll be spoiled for choice with bright hues like Carrot Orange, Marble Black, Snow White, Red Tulip, and Green Lime.


How does this home-gardening system work?

When it comes to growing produce in your house, this urban gardening gadget has everything you need. You’ll use a wired controller to manage the LED grow lights and choose from three different light intensities. These intensities have the wavelengths plants need to replace the Sun completely. This way, you’ll be able to grow plants indoors, year-round, even in completely dark rooms. The LED lights support a variety of plants, and each wavelength color stimulates a particular biological function.

Why does this home garden need adjustable lights?

The adjustable arms allow you to position the grow lights at different angles, providing more complete coverage. Having a changeable position also prevent leaves from burning. The arms are flexible, rotate 360 degrees, and make greens grow like crazy.

How does the self-watering feature work?

The QBUX comes with a self-watering Orb or mini-irrigation system. It’s inspired by a 4,000-year-old watering technique used in Persia, Keyna, and other areas of the world. The Orb’s porous walls let water seep into the soil as the plant needs it. Also, the soil and the plant’s roots create a suction force. So if the soil is dry, water inside the Orb releases water where the roots pull it out. This ensures that your plants have the correct amount of moisture all the time. It also creates deep root growth, which results in a healthier plant.
