The OPCOM GrowBox and GrowWall: Self-Contained and Soil Free Indoor Gardening

We’ve looked at other indoor gardening solutions in the past, but this is the first soil-free version. Check out the OPCOM Farm GrowBox and GrowWall. They both use “automated systems featuring proprietary LED light spectrum technology with lighting and water cycles and nutrition finely tuned for optimal plant growth at a rate 25 percent faster than outdoor gardens.”

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-confessed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area ... or not.
