Hydroponic plant farming in your house? Hmm...

I'm pretty sure people will use this for pot.


I have a funny story about this Electrolux Vege that I read about on GadgetCandy. It's a prototype for a fridge-sized hydroponic plant-growing cupboard that will allow you to grow your own plants and herbs in the comfort of your own home. If you want to be mega-eco-friendly but don't have the time or space for a full-fledged garden or greenhouse, here's a solution. Cool, right? So I decided to Crave it.

Then it occurred to me that the Vege might gain more popularity as an incubator for plants that are a little bit more on the Up In Smoke side of the spectrum. Which we don't recommend. So we decided not to post it on Crave, because we're upstanding, law-abiding citizens here.
