In 2021, LG shut down its once-thriving smartphone business to focus on other things. Now, it looks like the company wants to ring in the new year by helping people’s herbs and flowers flourish with an all-new LG indoor gardening gadget.
The company usually launches new smartphones at the annual CES show every year, but for 2022 something else is coming. Ahead of the official unveiling in early January, LG recently announcement the LG Tiiun, which means “germinate” in Korean. This unique concept is now an actual product, and it’s a refrigerator-like self-contained gardening machine that allows novice gardeners to easily grow herbs, flowers, vegetables and more from their home, indoors, at any time of the year.
LG’s new indoor garden isn’t quite as fancy as its LG Wing smartphone. Yet the Tiiun garden can regulate temperature, lighting and humidity, which creates the ideal environment for growing crops. It’s almost like something out of a sci-fi movie, and I’m waiting for Matt Damon to show me how to grow potatoes like he did on Mars in this movie.
Did LG abandon phones to make gardening equipment? Kidding aside, it’s interesting to see LG go from creating some of the most unique and innovative smartphones to showing the world its new indoor garden. But hey, if you work from home, it could be a fun hobby.
According to Press release, the LG Tiiun instantly creates the perfect growing environment. Gardeners can use its seed pods which contain seeds and a growing element, allowing owners to produce crops, including flowers, in as little as four weeks.
Each shelf holds up to six all-in-one pods, with each seed packet containing ten holes for seed germination. According to LG, even the most novice gardener can grow multiple greens simultaneously, although some can take longer than eight weeks. Either way, LG says the gear makes it faster than growing outdoors.
Users will notice that the machine automatically regulates temperature, light, and more to mimic the natural cycles of the day. And with a smart automatic watering system, the process should be simple enough that anyone can do it. Additionally, the Tiiun is compatible with LG’s ThinQ mobile app, giving owners more ways to check their crops. Before you know it, you’ll be an avid indoor gardener.
With the transparent window on the door, users can easily see inside to monitor progress without interrupting the environment. It may look like a wine cooler or mini fridge at first glance, but there’s a lot going on inside the new LG Tiiun Indoor Garden. We can expect to hear more about pricing and its release date at CES or early 2022.
