This indoor herb garden basically takes care of itself

Growing your own herbs is a lot like having a pet, except it won’t wake you up two hours before you wake up. Oregano has never knocked a cup off a table because you weren’t paying attention. The problem is that it’s actually quite difficult to grow your own plants, especially if you’re doing it indoors. Walk in PICO Planter Herb Garden, an indoor herb gardening kit that doesn’t require you to learn how to grow herbs indoors. It even has its own grow light. Automate your green thumb and get PICO Planter Herb Garden on sale for $39.99 (Reg. $49).

PICO Planter has beaten its Kickstarter goal by nearly $1.5 million. All of this hype grew because of how easy PICO makes it easy to grow your own indoor plants. OSRAM LED grow lights keep your plants healthy even if it’s the only light they receive. They are mounted on a telescoping rod that accommodates plant growth up to nine inches. The self-watering system does most of the maintenance for you, letting your plant get as much water as it needs as long as you refill it once a week. You can even check the water consumption against a factory id app to make sure it gets the right volume.

For an indoor gardening kit, convenience is the name of the game. Ideally, you can put in minimal effort and still enjoy the fruits – or herbs, flowers, and leaves – of your labor. PICO is low maintenance, lets you grow anything that fits in the planter, and you can put it just about anywhere.

It can also help purify your air, change of mood, or just look good. You can even set up a daisy chain and connect multiple PICOs together. Ultraviolet light may be purple, but you can turn your home into a greenhouse.
