The Secret Garden, An Automated Cultivator That Makes Growing At Home Easy and Attractive, Launches on Kickstarter

The Secret Garden system manages watering, lighting, nutrient scheduling and even comes with a carbon filtration system that circulates and cleans the air around plants

TORONTO, Jan. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ --

Today, Grassroots Biotics launches its campaign on Kickstarter for The Secret Garden, an automated home grower for plants. Unlike other grow boxes that hide plants behind a single door box, The Secret Garden's unique design gives users the option to add or remove side panels so that plants can be viewed from all angles and also provides easy access for tending to plants without having to remove them from the grower.
"This will be the first of many green living products produced by Grassroots. The project began in my last semester at college while studying sustainable business. The box is my attempt at making a home growing device that could actually fit everyone's lifestyle and producing a product that is environmentally friendly throughout," said Founder Brian Hanna.
The Secret Garden comes in two models: The Sensible model and The Secret Garden model. The Sensible model is available for those that have a hard time keeping houseplants alive and want to change that. This model does not include any side panel doors and is suitable for most houseplants and plants that bare fruit or flowers yearlong. The Secret Garden model comes with blackout panel doors that are sequenced to match to the rest of the box and suitable for when users want to control smells and grow specific plants such as carolina reapers or tomatoes.
The lighting system consists of blue tinted side lighting that promotes the vegetative growth of plants and LED lighting that is optimized for flowers and fruit production. The Secret Garden comes with a customizable, efficient, auto-dimming system that dims the lights, providing users with a soft glow while at home. When users are not home, the lights are set to full power, ensuring that the plants are getting all of the light they need. The Secret Garden also has an electrical management system that ensures there is no wasted energy - it costs only $1- $2 a month in electricity.
The Secret Garden uses an environmentally friendly, self-watering method that provides water and nutrients to a plant, based on that specific plant's needs. The pot is adjustable, allowing for greater customization because some plants like drier soil, while some like wetter soil. The mobile app gives users 24-hour access to their Secret Garden's temperature and humidity levels, as well as the height of their plant by using ultrasonic height detectors. It also provides users with reminders for water and nutrient refilling and tips to help specific plants grow. The app can also connect multiple Secret Gardens and compare different grows.
The Secret Garden is available for preorder on Kickstarter starting at $279. For more information or to pre-order, visit

After struggling to grow several plants indoors, Founder Brian Hanna wanted to create something to help himself and others grow and maintain plants, vegetables and more from the comfort of inside a home. The Secret Garden is a versatile home grower that caters to a variety of growers and plants alike. For more information, visit

Wrinkle Injections: Vegan Millenials refuse Botox

Wrinkle Injections: Vegan Millenials refuse Botox:

The main ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin, produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria.  Although the main ingredient in Botox comes from bacteria, since another ingredient is from humans, 
Botox is not vegan.

 Not only is Botox made of a non-vegan ingredient, the injectable is also tested on animals.

Botox and Fillers. As most fillers, including lip and derma fillers, are made from non-animal origin hyaluronic acid, they are considered vegan

However, much like Botox, they are required by law to be tested on animals because they're classified as medical products.

Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 (ages 23 to 38 in 2019) is considered a Millennial
