A true child of the Internet age, Greenox's digital intellect takes care of everything: helps you to choose the best illuminated spot, checks humidity and temperature around with built-in sensors and communicates with you via LEDs and bluetooth module.
You’ll know how your garden feels through a smartphone App and it's incredibly cool. You may stop worrying about batteries or adding water - your greens will remind you about it. Have you ever watered plants with a smartphone? Because you can do it with Greenox!
In addition to the gardening, Greenox gives you a designer’s joy. Our designers developed the concept in the minimalistic Zen style. It is ideally suited for bringing eco-motifs into absolutely any modern home. With no messy wiring that gets in the way you can easily combine Greenox with your interior. Put your Greenoxes in a pyramid, hang them on a wall, let your imagination run free. A simple but noble design of the Greenox unit is worthy of an art gallery: how about the Metropolitan Museum Of Greens? Two weeks and you have alive portraits of parsley, basil or pepper.
Stress & depression relief
It’s the most beautiful and refine way to grow greens in urban surroundings: guaranteed by the Mother Nature, plants have powerful energy that awakens them to life so just observe them grow. It’s this small adventure for an urban citizen, surrounded by concrete, glass and steel from dawn till dusk. Do you remember childish joy from watching sprouts break asphalt, a tiny victory of living matter? We become more alive just from looking at this magic.
Any stress is an imbalance between the inner and the outside world. You’ve certainly noticed that negative emotions, bad mood and irritation just vanish after you’ve found your way to the nature.
Detox and health benefits
Fresh plants and herbs contain numerous antioxidants that protect your brain from being damaged by free radicals. Besides, they’re an outstanding source of vitamin B, which gets all used up when we’re stressed. Herbs are rich with magnesium that sedates the nervous system, they bring you peace of mind and help sustaining a continuous level of energy.
100% organic microgreens in a week
A kitchen! This is the place where Greenox will be the most handy. There’s nothing sadder than a bunch of dying greens in the fridge - that never happens to Greenox which can run for four weeks on a single water fill and six months on a set of AA-batteries.
Fresh plants and herbs have way more nutrients necessary for our body for active life than any other products that many of us may claim an irreplaceable part of a diet. The best choice is non-GMO and non-heat-treated products, that retain all qualities of a living plant. Fragrant herbs can turn the simplest dish into a culinary masterpiece.
Even after a long business trip you gonna get back and pick for your salad some glossy leaves, full of vitamins and aroma. And feel home at last. With Greenox you can grow almost any micro greens: cilantro, broccoli, radish, sweet onion, fennel, red cabbage and many-many more.
With the help of the official Greenox app you can monitor water supply, battery charge, soil moisture and ambient temperature. You can even remotely water your plants.
As every flower was once a seed, every startup began as just an idea. For more than twelve months, our team formed with people of diverse backgrounds from biology to engineering devoted their day to day lives to what they believed in. Soiled with patience and watered with love Greenox has grown into something we admire. And we hope you’re gonna love it, too.
Development and Proof of Concept
There were made and tested dozens of prototypes during a more-than-a-year period before that final and the best one Greenox prototype turned out. And it wasn't ready until it was brought to perfection. At Greenox every single detail is important.
Only great passion and true love for what you do can bring to life cool and meaningful projects. We are sure - Greenox is one of them thanks to our founder Alex, who spends 18 hours a day working on his "child".
We guarantee fast hassle-free delivery in the US and European Union. Customers cover shipping and handling. As postal service may vary we can't guarantee a smooth delivery to the rest of the World. We will refund backers in countries we can't deliver to. Customs tax may apply in certain countries when you pick up your Greenox so we advise that you check your local regulations.
We try enlighting the urban citizen’s life. We’re adding the small joys of gardening, home decorating and organic cooking to it. Not likely to grow enough greens for your daily salad, we still can promise you’re gonna feel happier every day.
1. What kind of plants can I grow?
It’s totally up to your choice. We recommend that you first check your local regulations regarding medical cannabis though.
2. How much natural light I need to grow the plants?
The built-in sensor helps you to measure the illumination. But generally if you have a window you’re gonna be fine.
3. Will I need an electric supply for Greenox?
No, Greenox has no cord at all. It runs on 4 AA-type batteries so you can easily move it around.
4. Do seeds and soil come with Greenox?
No, we leave this part to you so you can choose whatever greens you feel like growing. We consider it the beauty of the Greenox game.
5. What type of soil do I need?
Regular garden soil from any household supplies store will do the trick.
6. Will I need to use fertilizer?
Never. Just don’t re-use the soil and you’ll be good.
7. How often will I need to refill the water reservoir?
Depending on your home climate. A single refill’s normally enough for three weeks of growth.
8. What can I do with the phone app?
The App gives you a statistical breakdown on what’s been happening with Greenox during previous day, week or month: temp, humidity, watering cycle and illumination patterns. You can even remotely water your plants if you want to contribute but don’t expect loud cheers. They’re greens, you know.
9. How much noise does the pump make?
Not more than a bumblebee so you’re gonna hardly notice the sound of the pump. Also, the watering cycle correlates with your sleep phase to make you rest better. Just kidding.
10. What’s included in the Starter Kit?
Starter Kit includes the Greenox unit and all the future fun and happiness it brings.
Risks and challenges
Starting in spring with just an idea in mind we spent the entire year of 2016 and half of the current year learning how to manufacture the very first Greenox prototype. Now we can proudly announce that we’re all set for the launch of our Kickstarter campaign as we have on hands the fully functional model and are ready to roll.
Most of the 2017 we also have been working with our partners to mitigate as many risks as possible, yet we know there will still be obstacles along the way. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including these:
Ship Date: We've set the most achievable dates and added some buffer space but there still are certain things out of our control like local customs, postal service limitations, quality control and other issues that are really hard to predict. Anyway, we guarantee that you will receive a product of an outstanding quality and we will keep in touch with our backers through updates.
Product Changes: As we refine the Greenox based on a feedback from green life enthusiasts and more product testing, some light changes may appear. But we assure you that those will only improve the overall owner experience.
Supply Chain Management: We work with a variety of suppliers providing the best materials to ensure that the product is developed according to strict guidelines. Suppliers may have their own challenges, possibly affecting its partners, including us.
Maintenance: As hard as we've worked to make this truly a self-sustainable indoor garden, these are living organisms. As with all plants, there are many conditions that can affect plant growth. We've done everything in our power to help you easily adjust settings depending on your plant type in order for the greens to thrive.
