Grobo began in 2014 with the simple goal of creating a growing system that would allow all year round herb growing. Grobo has been able to create a wholly enclosed growing station that helps you produce high-quality healthy plants in practically any space all year round. The system is entirely automated, so all you have to do is plant your seeds, select the appropriate recipe, and let it grow.

How Does Your Grobo Work?
Unboxing and Setting Up the Grobo
- A Wifi connection
- Distilled or reverse osmosis water
- A bucket
After your Grobo cabinet arrives, you need to go to the Grobo website and follow the setup instructions. The online instructions tell you first to remove it from the shipping box. To do that, you need to remove the safety straps Grobo uses to secure your shipment.
After removing the straps, you can take the lid off and start removing the contents of the package. On top, you will see Box A with the carbon filter. You can remove that box and set it aside.
Inside your cabinet, you will notice several cardboard inserts to keep everything in place during shipping. You will also find two boxes. Box B is the nutrients box, and the other package contains the pH and EC sensors.
You can remove and set aside Box B with the nutrients. However, you need to be careful with the sensor box because they connect to the machine. You should leave the sensor box in the cabinet while you complete the rest of the unboxing process. You will not need them until you start your first plant.
Grobo Frequently Asked Questions
[sc_fs_multi_faq headline-0=”h2″ question-0=”How do I find a location for the Grobo?” answer-0=”The box is perforated to make it easier to get your grow box out, but you will likely need another person to help you put it in your desired location. You can set your Grobo pretty much anywhere, but you do need to make sure it is close to a power source.” image-0=”” headline-1=”h2″ question-1=”How do I level the Grobo?” answer-1=”Once you have your Grobo in the right spot and you remove Box B and the cardboard inserts, you need to level it using the levelling feet on the bottom. You want to make sure the cabinet is level so no chemicals or water spill. So, this is a crucial step, especially if your floors are not flat. To level the unit, simply screw or unscrew the feet at the bottom until it is flat.” image-1=”” headline-2=”h2″ question-2=”How do I set up the carbon filter?” answer-2=”You also need to set up the carbon filter. To do that, you need to unscrew the cover. Once you have the cover out, you will insert the filter with the honeycomb side up, then replace it in your Grobo and screw it back in.” image-2=”” headline-3=”h2″ question-3=”How do I connect to the Grobo?” answer-3=”After you have your cabinet in the right location, level it, and insert the carbon filter, you are ready to turn it on and connect it to your desired device. After you plug it in, the unit will start the connection process. The app will prompt you to select the device you want to connect to and provide instructions for completing the process.” image-3=”” headline-4=”h2″ question-4=”How do I start growing with the Grobo?” answer-4=”Now, you are ready to start growing your first plant. To grow, you need to select a recipe from the Grobo app. Choosing the correct formula is easy. You just perform a search for the appropriate seed. There are also options for seeds that are not in the app.” image-4=”” headline-5=”h2″ question-5=”How do I insert the PC & EC sensors?” answer-5=”After you set the recipe, you will need to insert your pH and EC sensors. Both sensors have a cap. It is essential to carefully remove the pH sensor cap because it comes in a solution you need to keep for storing your it between grows. The EC sensor is dry, so you do not have to worry as much about that one. When the sensors are in your Grobo box, you can load the nutrients. To do that, you just need to remove the caps, place the tubes inside the bottles, and place the containers in the machine, so they are level.” image-5=”” headline-6=”h2″ question-6=”How do I fill the Grobo with water?” answer-6=”Then, you need to fill the machine with water. The device has an automatic fill feature, so you just need to put the fill tube in a bucket of water, and the pump will fill it until it has the proper level of water. While it is filling, the lights turn green.” image-6=”” headline-7=”h2″ question-7=”How do I soak the seed pod?” answer-7=”Next, you will soak your seed pod. You need to soak it for about five minutes. Then, you need to squeeze it to make sure there is not too much water. If you do not adequately soak the pod, it will not have the proper moisture level for the seed to sprout, so this is a critical step.” image-7=”” headline-8=”h2″ question-8=”How do I plant the seed?” answer-8=”Once you soak your pod, you are ready to insert your seed. There is a little space at the top of the pod to place the seed. After you place your seed inside, you will rip a small piece of the pod off and cover the seed with it. Then, replace the pod in the machine, so the top of the seed pod is below the sticker.” image-8=”” count=”9″ html=”true” css_class=””]

Where is the Grobo Shipped?
Grobo products ship to the United States, Canada and Europe. Shipping to Europe only began in 2020 after strong growth in North America. If you decide to take your Grobo to a country outside of these locations, you run the risk of violating Grobos terms and conditions. The good news is all shipping is free 🙂
