Indoor gardens seem like something more at home at CES 2000 than CES 2020. But electronics maker LG doesn’t think the idea of indoor gardening is past its prime and is showing off an indoor gardening system that can be attached to the side of its refrigerators.
The unit can grow up to 24 seeds — six on each of its four shelves — in a controlled environment. The seed pods already include the necessary fertilizer and peat moss, and the gardening system itself will water the trays automatically, with LED lights providing the correct amount of light to encourage growth and prevent wilting.
Of course, you’ll be able to monitor and control your indoor grow, and the greens grown will be enough to feed a family of four. The company says it will offer about 20 different seed pods, including romaine and other types of lettuce, arugula, chicory, and basil.
As yet, LG has not announced a release date or a price on the gardening appliance. Instead, it appears that the company is using CES to gauge interest in such a device by showing off a working concept at its booth. LG says another reason for its development is consumers’ increasing interest in healthy lifestyles.
