Which Gromeo is right for me?
The moment Gromeo enters your home, its love for you will know no bounds. Each Gromeo is designed with specific light levels in mind – high light, medium light, or low light. Make sure the Gromeo you select matches the correct light level on your wall.
How do I figure out my light levels?
High, medium or low light? Here are three easy ways to determine light levels to guide your palette selection.
- Use a professional light meter (most accurate). Here’s one we like: Hydrofarm LG17010 Digital Light Meter, Black
- Download a light meter app from the app store (pretty good). We recommend: Korona - Plant Light Meter
- Shadow hand test (good enough). Pick a wall spot where you’re considering hanging Gromeo. When the sun is strongest (anywhere from 11am – 1pm) hold up your hand 6 inches from the wall and analyze the shadow to determine the light strength.
High light: If your wall gets full, direct sun or very bright light for at least 6 hours a day. A shadow cast on this wall would show clean, crisp outlines and a strong contrast. A light meter would read anywhere between 800- 1200 ft candles. (See palette selections for High Light)
Medium Light: If your wall would get mostly filtered or dappled sunlight for at least 6 hours a day. A shadow cast on this wall might look bit fuzzy, but still show a defined silhouette. A light meter would read anywhere between 250- 800 ft candles. (See palette selections for Medium Light)
Low Light: If your wall gets no direct light at all. Finding a shadow to cast on this wall might feel impossible. A light meter would read anywhere between 50- 250 ft candles. (See palette selections for Low Light)
NOTE: Gromeo must have exposure to no less than 50 candles at the lowest light level in order to survive. If your wall is too dark, supplemental lighting must be used.
How do I care for my Gromeo?
Gromeo is super chill and never demanding.
Water: Refill the reservoir about every 1-2 weeks to keep Gromeo hydrated. Different Gromeo palettes may vary here. How often you water will depend mostly on how much light Gromeo receives and how fast the plants are growing. Monitor your Gromeo carefully for the first week paying close attention to the water reservoir. You should water the Gromeo just before the reservoir is empty
Light: Make sure Gromeo is getting the light it needs based on the palette design. Gromeo requires at least 50 candles at the lowest light level to survive. If you’re not sure about your light levels click here.
Food. Plants get hangry too. A little food goes a long way. We recommend using any water soluble fertilizer 1/4 tsp per gallon of water once per month
Can I hang Gromeo outside?
