Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve tried our best to answer as many questions that you may have about the Aejou. Drop us an email if you still have any unanswered queries!
The Aejou is a smart, IOT-enabled micro farm that is designed to grow a wide variety of microgreens, leafy greens and herbs. When connected to the internet and the App, the Aejou retrieves our proprietary grow recipes from the cloud and translates them into instructions in the Aejou to adjust the light intensity and watering cycles based on what type of seeds have been placed inside. There is little to no user intervention required for your greens to go from seed to harvest in the Aejou.
A grow recipe to refers to the aggregation of plant growth parameters such as temperature, light intensity and duration, watering frequency and amounts and nutrient dosages into a single formula that is specific for each type of vegetable. Not to be confused with cooking recipes, which we will make available through our app in due time so that our users will have ideas of what kind of dishes they can whip up with the greens they harvest.
None at all! The fully automated system does all the work for you. All you have to do is harvest your chosen crops when they are ready.
Very little! All that is needed is a regular power outlet and a stable internet connection. Control the Aejou through the Aejou App and pop in our seed punnets to get started. Our smart micro farms do all the growing for you so that you do not have to!
With its compact size (60cm W x 60 cm D x 90cm H) and beautiful aesthetics, the Aejou was designed to fit seamlessly into any room or home. Since the Aejou smart micro farm manages the temperature, watering and lighting for optimal plant growth, it can even be located in a shaded spot without any light.
No, it does not. The Aejou comes with an integrated water tank at the bottom that circulates water with minimal loss, thus significantly reducing water usage.
The Aejou has a nett zero water consumption. How is this possible? In the Aejou nothing goes to waste. Condensate from the cooling system is recycled back into the water tank and used for irrigation. After you fill up your tank the first time there is no need to top it up anymore until the next cycle.
The full spectrum LED horticultural grow lights used in the Aejou were specially designed for the Aejou. These lights mimic the spectrum of natural sunlight required for healthy plant growth and photosynthesis.
The maximum power rating of the Aejou is 450W with all components running. For all other times, the power consumption can be as low as a computer.
Not at all. The Aejou was designed to be as minimally intrusive as possible. The integrated water tank just needs to be replenished at the start of each grow cycle and we recommend that the grow trays be removed and given a wash once every 3 months.
The tank only needs to be topped up once a month!
Yes, definitely! The plants grown on your balcony are subject to non-optimal growing conditions such as unfavourable temperatures, insufficient sunlight, inconsistent nutrients and are often prone to insects and pests. Greens in the Aejou grow many times faster as they are given optimal doses of light, water, temperature and nutrients. And since it is a closed system you do not have to worry about insects and pests destroying your plants. Another reason why you would benefit from an Aejou – grow greens that wouldn’t otherwise flourish in our tropical climate!
The Aejou runs with little to no human inputs so why not! However, we recommend that the Aejou be switched off if you are travelling for more than 10 days. Try starting a new cycle of vegetables before leaving for your trip and return home to ready-to-harvest greens for your enjoyment!
The Aejou is proudly designed, engineered and manufactured in-house in Singapore.
The Aejou costs S$2,499 on its own, S$2,099 with a 6-month subscription to our Seed Service at S$120/month and S$1,899 with a 12-month subscription to our Seed Service at S$100/month. We recommend purchasing the Aejou with a Seed Service to enjoy greater savings!
That depends on which package you have purchased. The basic package for just the Aejou Smart Micro Farm includes the Aejou Smart Micro Farm and a spare water tube for draining the water from the tank. When purchased with a Seed Service, the Aejou smart micro farms comes with the first month’s supply of 48 seed punnets along with 2 bottles of nutrient solutions.
