But, with innovative products like the Gardyn Home Kit 2.0, you can grow your own produce any time of the year in your own smart garden. If you pick up a Gardyn Home Kit 2.0 right now, you can get it for 30% off. That’s $304 off of the usual $999, making the kit just $695. The Gardyn, which self monitors the plants it contains, can also be paired with a membership plan for just $29/mo. to provide you with two years of pre-prepared plants to grow and eat. We aren’t sure how long this deal will last, so act now.

Why you should buy the Gardyn Home Kit 2.0

The Gardyn Home Kit 2.0 provides an opportunity to grow food plants indoors, while only becoming as involved in the process as you want to. Daily chores that are typically required when taking care of your favorite indoor plants, like watering, are essentially removed and the more fun aspects (pruning and harvesting) are emphasized. That’s all thanks to specialized AI, called Kelby, and the smart nutrient, water, and light delivery system of the Gardyn.

Kelby provides an app-based approach to smart garden growing. For one, it monitors your plants’ growth 24/7, intervening to maximize growth based on advanced AI. When you want to go on vacation, don’t worry about your plants, just flip on Vacation Mode and Kelby will know what to do. The app even provides a time lapse of your plants’ progress and advanced control over the system’s lighting and watering schedules.

Meanwhile, the Gardyn’s innovative yCubes are the indoor garden analog to Keurig K-Cups. They’re plug’n’play plants, basically. While you’re free to use your own plants, every purchase of the Gardyn Home Kit 2.0 comes with a 30 plant starter set that includes 20 favorites (think lettuce varieties, tomatoes, and herbs) and your choice of 10 others. For this time of year, we highly recommend the Winter Wellness set, which includes chamomile, wheatgrass, and the scarily named bull’s blood beets.

So, if you’re ready to start growing even though its snowing, order your Gardyn Home Kit 2.0 and pick your starter plant set today. Remember, while this deal last the Gardyn Home Kit 2.0 is only $695, which is $304 lower than the typical $999. We’re not sure how long this deal will last, so pick yours up today!
