You don’t have to be a genius to know that plants aren’t only there to look good. Aside from the obvious that they look pretty, research has shown that indoor plants can improve an office environment a whole lot! Plants play an important role in providing a pleasant and tranquil environment in which to work, and can actually increase productivity, lower stress as well as improving air quality – air conditioning anyone?

So, why is this information in a newsletter from a technology company? Whimsical, new age stuff has nothing to do with tech, does it? Now for something completely different for the green thumbs, in combination with the tech heads:  an ingenious product for indoor gardening in your cubicle.

Grobo is the app-controlled, indoor gardening system that grows plants without direct sun, and without having to remember to water it. You don’t even need to leave your desk – the app will do everything for you. The LED light source connects to your smartphone and you can set watering reminders.

Choose the right plant, and you can have the added advantages of colour therapy, aromatherapy, or maybe grow something to snack on.

Using apps are now second nature to most of us, so why not use the technology to actually bring nature into your life. The benefits of this app are good for you!
