Food is always better fresh, but you may not have the outdoor space or time to grow your own. The EcoQube Air Desktop Greenhouse solves this problem with a smart watering system and artificial lights. You can grab this clever kitchen garden now for $199 (Orig. $269) via 9to5Toys Specials.

Like a full-size greenhouse, the EcoQube Air provides the perfect conditions for plants. Full color-spectrum LEDs deliver the energy, while dual fans pump 450 cubic feet of purified air through the greenhouse every hour. The hydroponics system uses no messy soil, and you save 90% of the water usage you’d spend on a typical garden.

Along with vegetables, you could grow regular house plants and flowers. You don’t need any artificial light, and the greenhouse responds to the outside temperature. Little wonder this device raised $300,000 on Kickstarter.

Although the EcoQube Air is designed for plants, it’s also great for humans. The greenhouse provides smart light therapy to help you rise in the morning and sleep better at night.

It’s usually $269, but you can get the EcoQube now for just $199 — that’s 26% off MSRP.
