Grow fresh produce indoors, year-round, soil-free with SproutsIO, the smart microgarden that learns from you.

SproutsIO combines our high performance growing device, sIO seed subscription, and SproutsIOGrow software services for an easy and engaging experience. By utilizing proprietary hybrid hydroculture growing technology and machine learning software, SproutsIO cultivates Personal Produce™, fruits and vegetables grown to your taste according to settings you customize.

SproutsIO is designed to fit your life and scale to your needs - whether you live in an urban apartment or run a world-class restaurant kitchen. Fresh, flavorful produce is now available any time, any place through an automated and transparent growing process.


SproutsIO makes it easy for you to grow your own produce, regardless of where you live or how much experience you have. Through elegant and thoughtful design, SproutsIO makes it possible for everyone to experience the pleasure of gardening.

Everything the plant needs will then be provided by the system, optimizing for the particular seed you choose. In no time you will begin seeing your produce grow. The SproutsIOGrow app lets you know when you need to take action. Occasional push notifications remind you when to add water, harvest, and order new sIO refills.


Getting started is simple - connect SproutsIO to WiFi using the SproutsIOGrow app, place a sIO seed refill into the basin, and add water. The sIO will activate a specific Growing Profile, whichs include light, temperature, humidity, conductivity, and imaging data.

By utilizing environmental sensors and machine learning software, SproutsIO defines and anticipates ideal conditions for each varietal. These processes occur behind the scenes, caring for your plants automatically. When your Personal Produce™ is ready, simply harvest, and a new sIO will be automatically shipped to you.

Growing profiles can be altered to steer your fruits and vegetables towards particular flavor profiles you prefer - what we call Personal Produce™. Leafy greens, flavorful herbs, fruiting plants, and root vegetables can be grown to your exact specifications and harvested when you need them.


The SproutsIO smart microgarden is thoughtfully designed. Each aspect of SproutsIO is crafted to the highest standards of quality, from its dishwasher-safe components to its intuitive software services. We've thought through the smallest details to ensure everyone can experience the pleasure of gardening.

SproutsIO utilizes both hydroponics and aeroponics to optimize for different types and stages of plant growth. This proprietary hybrid hydroculture system requires a fraction of the water and nutrients used in soil-based cultivation and achieves 2-3 times faster growth rates.


Our indoor growing system is chef-tested, enabling both home cooks and culinary professionals to create inspiring dishes with fresh, custom-grown produce. Through our professional Tastemaker Program, we partner world class chefs with our category-defining food technology to cultivate extraordinary produce, advance gastronomic development, and explore new formats for hospitality. SproutsIO’s modular design means it can scale to any need - control any number of devices from the same mobile app.


We designed SproutsIO to reconnect you with your food and empower you to participate in the growing process. SproutsIO grows with you too, continuously learning from the SproutsIO community. Each microgarden is a node within the SproutsIO network, creating a distributed system that can be leveraged for performance metrics, analytics and predictions. Together we can transform the food system and make a positive impact on the world.
