Forget what you heard about needing a green thumb to cultivate a thriving garden, in fact, forget about the fertilizer, and the soil, too! This futuristic nursery box gives the botanically challenged a foolproof way to get growing without getting your hands dirty. The ideal horticultural device for absent-minded gardeners, urbanites, and jetsetters, this sleek planter uses state-of-the-art electronics to grow healthy plants and herbs with minimal effort. Estonia-based designer Mattias Lepp uses principles from aeroponics and hydroponics to bring the flowerpot into the twenty-first century.
Setting up the pot is simple: just add water, four AA batteries, and the cartridge containing seeds and nutrients, then connect the pot to your computer via USB cable to download a growth program tailored to your plant's needs. Over the next two weeks, the pot itself will tend to your nascent sprouts, ensuring that your hands-off houseplant receives customized care. Made in Estonia.
