31 May 2016|nanny|

Sorry, no tomatoes this week, just a quick post about Nanny’s public debut. We went to Paris, to a connected things exhibition called Connected Conference. Here I am demoing Nanny to whoever was interested. The demo was simple: I added a bit of potassium hydroxide (pH up) to the nutrient solution of a small hydroponics system [...]

24 May 2016|nanny|

Growing my indoor tomatoes. Alarm!

17 May 2016|nanny|

With everything checked and working, I felt pretty confident: what could go wrong? Well, the substrate did: the expanded clay was not acidic enough. As the nutritive solution passes through my cheap [...]

Growing my indoor tomatoes. Transplanting

10 May 2016|nanny|

6th March. About 2 weeks after planting the seeds, they already have some leaves, and you can see white roots showing through the jiffy as in the image above. This seedling needs more space for its roots to grow: it is time to transplant them to the growing pot. If you wait too long, you [...]

We started beta tests with Nanny!

21 Mar 2016|nanny|

Three weeks ago we started beta testing Nanny. Almost every pure digital startup launches products while still in beta. That isn't advisable for a hardware company because when things fail you cannot simply release a new version as you would do with a web site. You want everything to work as a charm before selling the [...]
