LG Electronics (LG) will unveil an indoor gardening appliance at the CES 2020 trade show – the manufacturer’s first foray into indoor gardening.

The built-in column-style indoor gardening appliance employs advanced light, temperature and water control, convenient all-in-one seed packages and a growth-monitoring app to help users cultivate nutrient-rich and flavorful greens inside their own homes, according to a press release from LG. The appliance is designed to allow “even the most novice of gardeners to experience the joys of having a green thumb.”

It supports the growth of crisp, fresh herbs and vegetables all year-round, according to the release.

Utilizing flexible modules, the appliance replicates optimal outdoor conditions by precisely matching the temperature inside the insulated cabinet with the time of day, according to the release. LED lights, forced air circulation, and wick-based water management allow seeds to transform quickly into ingredients for delicious recipes and dishes. The advanced gardening system is capable of holding up to 24 all-in-one seed packages, depending on the variety of seed packages.

“In addition to the seeds of your choice, the all-in-one seed packages contain peat moss and fertilizer, making it easy for immediate planting,” according to the press release. “Initial packages will include 20 different varieties including romaine and other types of lettuce, arugula, chicory, and basil.”

LG’s automated gardening solution includes a non-circulating water supply technology, which evenly distributes the exact amount of water that the plant packages require. A companion smartphone app helps users manage and monitor their plants, offering useful guidance at each step along the way to ensure a successful harvest every time.

LG’s first home gardening cultivator will be on display during CES 2020 from January 7-10 at booth #11100 in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

LG Electronics USA Inc., based in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., is the North American subsidiary of LG Electronics Inc., a $54 billion global innovator in technology and manufacturing.
