Providing a lovely dim light to your space as well as photons for a tiny kitchen-garden, the Brot is a lamp and planter combined into one slick, terracotta package. The lamp provides nourishment to a tiny kitchen-garden that you can literally pick from and use in your meals. The upper half of the Brot lamp houses the light, while the lower half acts as a torus-shaped vessel for growing plants. A stainless steel tray sits inside the lower half, acting as a holder for the plant. You can sow a variety of seeds in the Brot, and the process is pretty standard. The seeds need to be soaked in advance before being planted, and can then be placed in the Brot’s lower half. They need to be moistened (probably using a spray/spritzer) 2-3 times a day, and within a week you’ve got yourself a perfectly healthy, homegrown set of herbs or sprouts to use in your meals. Oh, and let’s not forget, the Brot can be used for ambient dim lighting too, because after all, it’s also a lamp!
The dual functioning lamp and garden made its inaugural appearance at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in February in the “Greenhouse” category. The Brot is not yet for sale, but the company hopes to find a production facility soon.
If you need something to stomp on in your garden, this Super Mario Goomba Garden Statue is perfect. It looks just like a little Goomba from Super Mario Bros. except it stands still. Actually, don’t stomp this thing. You’ll probably break your foot since it is made of resin. And it isn’t worth any points anyway.
I don’t know about you, but I know that I’ve been saddened that I can’t grow actual fire flowers in my garden, but this Goomba will make it all better, adding just a touch of the Mushroom Kingdom to your yard. I think garden critters are much more likely to be scared by this guy than a garden gnome. I mean this looks like something that could actually eat them if they get too close. It’s those two fangs that make it look deadly. The eyebrows don’t help either. Dude just looks mean and hungry. He needs a Snickers. Thank God they get stomped easily by humans.
You can display this guy inside or outside, wherever you need a little Goomba action. He stands 8″ tall, so that’s probably about life-sized if Goombas were real. He’s the perfect addition to your Super Mario statue collection. Grab one at ThinkGeek today for $24.99.
When we think of growing plants, phrases such as ‘High maintenance’, ‘Unreliable’ and ‘Time consuming’ spring to mind. But this doesn’t always have to be the case… and Aspara proves this!
Aspara is a smart indoor garden that encourages the growth and consumption of fresh, healthy vegetables and herbs! Remembering to water the plants is a thing of the past; a scaled-down hydroponics farm system has been neatly integrated into the design, allowing for a reduced amount of wasted water, a faster plant growth, and perhaps most importantly, the elimination of the need for regular watering!
It’s not just watering that Aspara simplifies… it removes complexity from the start with its dedicated seed kits; the organic and/or non-GMO capsules plug straight into tray, removing the need for getting your hands dirty! The conditions of the plant’s environment can be monitored remotely from the mobile app, where you can also enter into a community of fellow gardeners, and share tips, tricks and advice on how to get the most out of your indoor garden!
The aspara™ smart indoor grow box is a miniaturized hydroponics farm system. Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil by using mineral nutrient solutions in a water solvent.
aspara™’s smart built-in sensors monitor, detect, report and record growth conditions based on nutrient concentration, air temperature, humidity, water temperature and overall water content in the system.
The sensors will adjust lighting, water flow and planting modes based on your plant’s needs. Precise monitoring of the growth conditions provides accurate instruction on the amount of water and nutrients required to be refilled into the system.
The adjustable grow light provides a full spectrum of intensity that caters to the needs of different plants at different growth stages, as well as your personal preference. Control growth through specific programs and replicate nature with sunrise and sunset scenery.
The reservoir water system automatically waters your seeds and plants based on their nutrient levels and stage of life. The automatic ebb-and-flow-design circulates the water so that nothing is wasted.
The aspara™ seed kits start with 15+ different organic and/or non-GMO seed capsules (selected) with nutrients that guarantee a 100% germination rate by just plugging the capsules into the specialty grow tray. It’s that simple!
The aspara™ IoT-connected app provides necessities, such as your plant’s light, water, temperature, and nutrient information, and it tracks your plant’s activities and conditions, but it does so much more…
The aspara™ app is a community platform for support, as well as a space to share your plants’ growth with people who share a similar passion. You can even share your progress through photos and videos on social media!
Successfully growing strawberries is notoriously challenging… pests love them just as much as we do! The team at Gusta Gardens identified this, and their solution came in the form of the wonderful SISSI STRAWBERRY, the world’s first strawberry tree!
The vertical planting system allows the product to be versatile; the height of the planter can be adjusted by adding or removing the pots, this can be increased further by elevating it, adding to its tree-like form! Or, if you’re after something a little more unusual, it can be suspended from the ceiling… there is an option for everyone!
Water is perfectly distributed throughout with help from the integrated system that ensures perfect irrigation conditions through each level, leading to consistently perfect growth. Most importantly of all, SISSI STRAWBERRY allows for strawberries to be made at home, meaning no more pesticides or lengthy journeys across the globe, just the sweet taste of satisfaction… and strawberry!
If someone told you that every home in the future would have its own farm smack dab in the middle of the living room, that’d be a hard sell, wouldn’t it?! When you see this design called Aeva, however, it becomes a little easier to believe. Designed to blend in with your existing home atmosphere, this is what happens when Scandinavian design values meet modern hydroponics.
Elegantly crafted from fine wood, chrome, and other premium materials, it nudges our preconceptions about how hydroponic systems should look scientific. The traditional credenza-style bottom looks familiar while the upper portion looks entirely contemporary. All of the working components are neatly tucked away and efficiently organized while the user’s favorite herbs and veggies add a touch of green to their living space.
There’s something crazy comfy about this design from Studio Rem and it’s purely intentional! Called Nebl, this thoughtfully designed planter represents the snugness, calmness, and grey quietness of a foggy day.
A minimalistic material blend, its ceramic base and frosted glass top create a safe cocoon for houseplants. The semitranslucent material teases the contents to the viewer, encouraging the use of their imagination while recalling the familiar feeling of being wrapped in a hazy cloud. In two varying sizes, and with the option to switch between two opening sizes that raise the glass, you can pair them up to put your favorite houseplants on display. DO want!
There’s nothing that will bring a little life (literally) to your dwelling faster than a plant or two (or three, or four, or fifty!). However, not everyone is a fan of standalone planters and pots cluttering up their living quarters. The latest from Kekkilä, the Green series of home furnishings aims to provide plenty of room for all your favorite plants.
The designs, which consist of shelving, boxes, ladders and more, feature integrated containers and surfaces that make perfect homes for plants next to your books and other belongings. They take up the same size footprint that your standard furniture would occupy, only they give your space freshness and a natural component you can enjoy. Some units also contain built-in lighting to help plants grow indoors while providing illumination and ambiance to your room. Use them inside or out and put your green thumb to practice!
The Green Box is an airy structured growing box with a lid, which can be used a storage box off-growing season.
The Green Shelf is a small-footprint stand with detachable shelves for creating a showcase of your favorite plants and pots.
The Green Light works as an ambiance light and is attachable to the Green Box and the Green Ladder product.
The Green Ladder is a three-tiered pot stand and it can be attached to the Green Light by stringing it to the fastening supports.
The Green Trellis Line is suitable to be used as a stand-alone or as an add-on to the Green Box and it’s perfect for supporting climbing clematis. The Trellis Wave offers an eye-catching design feature to urban spaces and it’s perfect for supporting climbing plants which prefer more vertical support.
Allsop’s Wheeleasy cleverly redesigns the wheelbarrow to be much more than that. Aside from the fact that it folds flat to be stored easily, the Wheeleasy is also great to load things onto, because it spreads flat on the floor. Load grass, hay, rocks, planters, or pretty much anything you want onto its flat vinyl-coated nylon tarpaulin and lift the handles up. The Wheeleasy works exactly like any normal wheelbarrow, but with a flexibility brought about by the tarp that feels potentially game-changing. Loading and unloading items have never been easier, besides with its tarp construction, everything you load onto the Wheeleasy always stays at the center, making sure your wheelbarrow never gets disbalanced or topples over. Once done using the marvel that is the Wheeleasy, it has one more trick up its sleeve. It collapses into a flat frame that you can easily store either horizontally or vertically without occupying the kind of space a traditional wheelbarrow would!
