If your apartment doesn’t have access to a garden or anywhere convenient to grow herbs or edible greens, you may be interested in a new growing system called Botanium which has been created by a design team based in Stockholm Sweden.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about how the soil free automated growing system can help you grow your favourite fresh foods with ease.
The development team behind Botanium explain a little more about its inspiration, design and features. Botanium has launched via Kickstarter this week and has already nearly raised the required funds to go into production.
Do you always manage to kill your basil or herbs despite your best efforts? Live your life as usual and let Botanium take care of the plants for you! Botanium is a complete kit for growing a plant from a seed. This is how to NOT kill a plant. Botanium is a compact, easy and effortless way of growing. Its a hydroponic pot, which means it grows plants like chilies, herbs and tomatoes without soil. It waters the plants automatically. The result? Faster growth and no need to worry about over or under watering. Leave it for a month and get back to a healthy plant. The steps are very easy:
1. Fill the tank with water
2. Add nutrients
3. Fill with growing medium
4. Plant a seed
5. Connect Botanium to an electrical outlet
6. Sit back and watch as the seedling grow a little bit every day!
Botanium is a simple planter that takes care of the boring parts of growing and lets you enjoy the fun parts. All you need to do is to fill the water tank every now and then, and add some nutrients (included). Grow herbs like basil, oregano or mint. Or chili, tomatoes or strawberries. Botanium works especially well with thirsty plants that normally would require very frequent watering. Plants do however have different nutrient requirements. This is easy to adjust – just add less or more nutrients. The correct amount of nutrients needed for the plant YOU are growing will be specified in the included Botanium User Guide.
