No Studying Needed

Most apps require you to study for years to grow 30+ species, and info is region-specific. “Full sunlight” is different from Florida to Maine. We use real data to be the expert for you!

Bill Gates on crop data

When you think of digital technology, you don’t think of measuring soil moisture, you don’t think about helping people know when to plant or understand what’s going wrong on their farm, but if we can make these sensors small enough, cheap enough, then the chance to get this down to more and more farmers, get them additional productivity, it’s pretty exciting…Any data you can get to farmers can make a huge difference. The weather is always highly variable. Deciding should they invest in fertilizer? When do they plant? Understanding which crop would be the right one at this time? Even 20% more productivity means that they can afford school fees, save a little bit for a tough year. — Bill Gates

VoidPlants Garden Instructions

Seeds

  1. Determine: Use a solar map and online blogs to determine which seeds to buy based on your light levels. If you’re new to gardening, choose large vegetable seeds.
  2. Purchase: Buy these seeds at Home Depot or Amazon.
  3. Store: Place the seeds in your refrigerator when not in use.

Sowing

  1. Buy: One of the cheapest ways to get large quantities of high-quality soil is Facebook Marketplace or Home Depot.
  2. Soil: Using a trowel, add nutrient-rich soil to a potgrow bag, or a raised bed. (Stick a pH sensor in the soil for 30 seconds if unsure of it’s quality; the reading should be 7-8, not under 4.)
  3. Drainage: If it’s a container, ensure the bottom has 2-3 drainage holes or pooled water will rot the roots. (If its an indoor plant, it’s best to add a water saucer underneath the pot to catch the water.)
  4. Requirements: Sowing and germination require the following: correct expiration date, temperature between 65-85°F (heat mat), high humidity without algae growth, very moist soil, sowed 2-3x the thickness of the seed deep in the soil, and soil that is sifted and nutrient-rich, not rocky.
  5. Sowing: Wait about 4-15 days.  If 50% or more of your seeds aren’t sprouting, we recommend the Paper Towel Method and placing your saplings high off the ground so animals cannot eat.
  6. (Optional) Map: Plan a layout for your garden with the Planter app!

VoidPlants

  1. Setup Hardware: Open the box, and place the battery into its holder. Place the lid on the box, and ensure the box is upright, not on its side. Ensure all cable glands are tight, or water may leak in!
  2. Setup Software:
    1. Check your email for an invitation to join the Blynk app with credentials for your product. (Do not download manually because app access initiates through the emailed link.)
    2. On the homepage, add a new device. Follow the steps, and your device will be connected to your WiFi. Enter a name and icon for your device, for example, based on its location or what you are growing.
    3. To verify, the top right “bell” icon will have a notification.
  3. Placing: Place the moisture sensor in the ground near the plant’s roots. Every 2 hours, your app will update. Ensure the light sensor is not shaded or the data will be inaccurate! Press the physical wake-up button, verify “State” turns blue (online), and that “Sleeps in” is counting down. If it’s not, move your device closer to your WiFi router, and try again.
  4. Charging: Buy a battery charger for 18650 3.7V Lithium-ion batteries. The device’s battery drains faster based on how often the wakeup button is pressed. Note the given battery is not fully charged.

Maintain

  1. Use the App: Click the button to learn how to use the app and find tips on adjusting sensor issues.
  2. Diagnose: Click the button to learn how to fix various issues, such as diseases, pests, dry soil, leggy plants, root-bound roots, and weeds. Alternatively, you can take a snapshot of the issue, and PictureThis will give you a solution.
  3. Reproduction: Some plants like watermelons need to be hand-pollinated, by rubbing a male flower’s pollen inside of a female flower. Check if your crop needs pollinating via YouTube. As you pick your crops, remember to keep the seeds for future use. YouTube is also a great resource for learning how to propagate. For example, by cutting a stem off a tomato plant and soaking the stem in water, you can develop a new root system.
