aspara™ is a hydroponic smart grower that helps you grow fresh and healthy-to-eat vegetables and herbs right on your kitchen countertop.

Using a combination of LED grow lights, an automatic watering system and advanced sensors, aspara™ is a connected control system for your indoor garden that does the growing for you.

  

While organic farming has been put more into practice than ever, when receiving food from an outside source, it’s truly hard to say what’s in your food.

Even if pesticides aren’t used, vegetables can still be contaminated in other ways, such as by heavy metals that occur naturally in soil.

However, starting a garden at home, and growing vegetables successfully, is not an easy task. Most homes are limited by lack of space or don’t have the best environment for growing plants. And for some, growing plants from a seed can seem like a daunting task.

aspara™ is a superior solution that has advanced technology and sensors that grow vegetables and herbs for anyone, no matter their experience level.

The aspara™ smart indoor grow box is a miniaturized hydroponics farm system. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.

aspara™’s smart built-in sensors monitor, detect, report and record growth conditions based on nutrient concentration, air temperature, humidity, water temperature and overall water content in the system.

The sensors will adjust lighting, water flow and planting modes based on your plant’s needs. Precise monitoring of the growth conditions provides accurate instruction on the amount of water and nutrients required to be refilled into the system. 

The adjustable grow light provides a full spectrum of intensity that caters to the needs of different plants at different growth stages, as well as your personal preference.

Control growth through specific programs and replicate nature with sunrise and sunset scenery. You can even dim the grow light or change it to white for photo taking.

The reservoir water system automatically waters your seeds and plants based on their nutrient levels and stage of life.

The automatic ebb-and-flow-design circulates the water so that nothing is wasted. 

The aspara™ seed kits start with 15+ different organic and/or non-GMO seed capsules (selected) with nutrients that guarantee a 100% germination rate by just plugging the capsules into the specialty grow tray. It’s that simple! 

The aspara™ IoT-connected app provides necessities, such as your plant’s light, water, temperature, and nutrient information, and it tracks your plant’s activities and conditions, but it does so much more...

The aspara™ app is a community platform for support, as well as a space to share your plants’ growth with people who share a similar passion. You can even share your progress through photos and videos on social media!

aspara™ makes togetherness as easy as it makes growing fresh, healthy meals.

                         
                         

There have been many innovative products that make life in your home more enjoyable. Single cup coffee makers allow us to easily enjoy freshly brewed coffee of your choice. So if coffee is so simple and easy, why can't we do the same with home-grown vegetables?

The idea clinked into Dr. Leung’s mind while he was the CEO of a world-class semiconductor company. “We can use advanced technology to provide the best environment for plant growth, then everyone can easily grow plants in their own home.”

Later in 2016, Dr. Leung established Growgreen and tried out different ways to employ technology to replicate nature in a machine and grow plants like vegetables, herbs, and tomatoes at home, indoors.

That’s what aspara™ is all about.

Risks and challenges

There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to produce, and have taken all the necessary measures. We have a highly qualified team of engineers and have partnered with leading manufacturing and fulfilment companies around the world. We just need your help to bring everything to fruition. Don’t worry, we’re completely prepared to bring aspara™ to your homes, and we have the manpower to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know.

If you face any technical issues (IoT related), you are welcome to send us feedback to ks@aspara.hk. We will try our best to deliver the aspara™ nature to you in good condition. In case you encounter any technical problems or issues, please refer to the instruction booklet. You can also contact us at ks@aspara.hk. Seed kit import varies widely in different countries. If you are living in a country where seed restrictions applied, please spare us at least half year to look for a local distributor for you.
