This is great! I absolutely love this!
I was wondering though.. would it be possible to implement a small interactive section into a unit at a lower price than $1000. It would just be the responding to voice section as my mum speaks to everything and it would be great if the plants spoke back!
Jeremy - you might also know it by the names of rucola and arugala. It's a great salad base/addition, a good source of vitamins A, C and K and a hit in kitchens around the world. See http://www.nutrition-and-you.com/arugula.html
Coming to think of it, and given our NASA-inspired background, we should have clarified earlier that it's not a rocket ship full of salad :)
So my only question really is 'what exactly is the salad rocket'? But besides that, I am very excited to see how successful this kickstarter has been for this, and I am looking forward to getting one of these!
Can you confirm if these are or aren't Monsanto seeds? Thanks
Emily - indeed, some countries are very strict when it comes to dealing with live plants and seeds, even harmless ones like ours. In countries like Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico and Brazil you may have to to insert local seeds yourself. A bit more hassle but it also gives you more flexibility in growing the herbs you like best.
Great effort! Can you confirm that there won't be any customs issues shipping to Australia? I wanted a click and grow a while ago and I couldn't get it shipped. We, rightly so, have incredibly tough quarantining here for seeds, wood etc etc. Regardless it's an awesome product!
Gina - thank you for the idea! This is the way we're currently going about this, so you're welcome to up your pledge and let us know which model you'd like to receive additionally.
Matthew - we're looking into this but this might not be possible. Shipping on time is tricky as is and this might add a level of complexity we're not (yet) ready for.
Stephen - just between us, first rosemary tests in our labs have gone well.
Frederic - the light is adjustable, up to 15 cm vertically.
In past projects I have backed, many have gotten around the multiple unit issue by allowing you to up your pledge during the funding process, and then at the end, asking if you are paying for an additional unit when filling out the shipping survey. Do you think you could explore a solution like this?
I would very much like a second unit, and would be happy to double my current pledge right now for it.
Any way that before you ship to us we could have the option to add on cartridges for an additional cost, of course, at the "kickstarter discount"?
Man, I love the pepper one! And tomato! I'm so stupidly excited for this haha. I went to another site that shows projections for kickstarter projects and this one is slated for over 900,000$US at this pace. I cant wait to see what other stretch goals we can get!!!!
The only thing that could make this better would be if rosemary cartridges were available.
450k mark should be a breeze!
how about overseas folks in australia? do we get extra blank cartridges?
How about a " Double Size " system or 2 Units with special pricing and a mix of Plants ........
Does the lighting solution will be a movable part ? I mean when plants will grow, could we adjust the lighting solution ?
Hope this product becomes as good as the current click & grow box!
Woohoo! Keep on Growing!
Rosemary and Thyme would be amazing!
Will you be doing rosemary?
Strawberry's at $500.000? :)
They're the best, not bet :)
Jon - totally agree and we want to include early bird folks too. They're the bet! Updated the wording too to make sure it's clear.
A little frustrating that the stretch goal add-ons are only for those above the early bird level. Feels a bit disrespectful to the people who helped get it started. I'm a big fan of the original Click & Grow and have been very happy with it so I was thrilled to chip in (this is my first Kickstarter) but I can't help but find that to be a disappointing decision.
Robbi - aiming to do that tomorrow
Pierre-Luc - try again now
Can you share a photo of the Black Kickstarter Special Edition on your Twitter account? Please
The Special Edition is still a 250max :/
Looking forward to some extra cartridges! Good luck!
I'm really happy to be a part of your amazing project !
Good luck from France.
