Each self-contained unit is solar powered, creating a microclimate for the plant pads which contain everything necessary for growing herbs- without additional fertilizers or chemicals. Additionally, each pad (whether basil, thyme, sage, etc.) is equipped with a RFID tag that is recognized by the Herbarium to ensure optimal growing conditions, which is helpful to those of us without green thumbs. Once the plant pad is â€œplanted,â€ the herb name is illuminated on the pot rim, which also displays information such as when your home grown herbs are ready to harvest.

I want one =) a true cooking gizmo, or not?
