Congratulations on becoming an Annaboto owner! Your on your way to growing plants at home like a pro!
The Annaboto is a fully automated Deep Water Culture (DWC) Hydroponics System. This means that the plant’s roots will grow directly in the water and the system will ensure that the water has the right amount of nutrients at any point. This is possible through Artificial Intelligence that is taking environmental data from your machine and images from the camera on the light.
Front View of the Annaboto device
Freshwater Tank - Fill this tank with water up to the fill-line indicator on the inside of the tank.
Grow Tank - This tank will be filled by the Freshwater Tank when the Annaboto device cycles. This water contains nutrients which help the plant grow.
Drain Tank - This tank contains the water that has been flushed from the Grow tank.
Seed Pod - This pod is where the seed germinates. The stem and leaves will grow through the top of the seed pod while the roots will grow from the seed pod into the grow tank,
Indicator Light - This light lets you know when the device is running, what cycle it is in and any errors.
Cartridge: The cartridge contains the nutrients which will help your plant grow.
Back of Annaboto device:
Outlets - these are found on the back of the device and can be used to support lights, heater, humidifier, etc for control by the Annaboto device. The topmost outlet is always used to connect the light.
USB Ports: These ports are used to control the light and get images from the camera.
Fan- The fan helps provide aeration to your plant, and can be controlled through your Annaboto App. Within the App, you will find two settings for the fan. “Boost Clean Air” allows you to choose how long you would like to run your fan for, ranging from 15 to 60 minutes. This setting is helpful for when your fan is not always running, but you would like to circulate clean air. “Fan Control” allows you to choose the fan strength, ranging from Off, through Low, Medium and High settings. By choosing one of these options, the fan will constantly stay on at that desired speed.
The Annaboto kit provides you with one Active Carbon Filter. This can be placed between the fan, and the fan cage if your plant begins to odor. Generally, a cannabis plant will begin to produce an odor around 2-4 weeks before flowering. This filter will help with the odor management, and should only be inserted when you start to smell your plant.
Light- The lamp contains a powerful LED colored light and lens that hyper focuses on the area of your plant, and acts as an artificial light source. In order for your plant to grow properly, the light must be on for 18 hours of the day. You can schedule what time you would like to have the lamp on in your App. Moreso, there is an option to “Snooze Light”, in which you can snooze your lamp for 15 to 60 minutes. Since your lamp provides enough light source for your plant, you do not need to place it near a natural outdoor light. If you choose to place your plant in an area in which it receives both natural and artificial light, this will not harm your plant.
