So smooth, seemingly gentle, and ridiculously time efficient, the transplanting pack planter robot in this Bob’s Market and Greenhouses video moves crowded plants from smaller containers to much larger ones. On deck: Transplanting pansies!
Watch how the machine contracts and expands to fit the containers, grabbing an entire line of plants out of one batch of dirt and transferring them ever so snugly into another. Even after they show the slow motion clip, it may still be hard to understand how this single-purpose gardening robot makes its moves so very precisely.
