Are you one of those who’ve jumped onto the urban gardening bandwagon, yet failed to keep anything alive using traditional gardening methods with potted soil? Then perhaps you may want to explore hydroponic gardening, a soil-less garden system that’s sustained by water and nutrients.

But don’t get one of those huge hydroponic systems that cost six figures, at least. Check out the Plantui Smart Garden, which is a fully automated plant growing system that’s so easy to use, you can grow herbs or vegetables right on your tabletop. Here are some of its cool features:    

It’s so stylish

Since it was created in Finland, it has the expected sleek, Nordic-modern design, of course, and would look equally beautiful on a windowsill or coffee table. We believe it gives a nod to the iconic 1960s Nesso mushroom lamp by Artemide, don’t you think?

It works on a no-brainer system

The Plantui system does all the work; you just add water and nutrients every one or two weeks—the built-in water pump waters the green babies once a day for a few seconds. This type of planter is perfect for homeowners who don’t have green thumbs (or for forgetful homeowners).

Those just aren’t mood lights

These built-in lights mimic sunlight, and were made specifically for Nordic countries where there are months with almost no sun. The concept also works here for condo units or homes that have small windows or lack access to natural light. The cover of the Plantui is kept close for the first few weeks with a pink light to help the seedlings germinate. When the plants grow bigger, a bluish light is maintained for 16 hours a day. The lights can be turned on or off by touching the top of the planter.

You can customize the unit to accommodate your growing plants

Use height blocks to extend the “stem” of your plantui to accommodate your growing plants—you can have a full tomato vine in one!

Go on vacation and forget about it

The Plantui can be set on a “holiday pause,” so that the planter can take care of your plants while you fly off to another country (no need for a plant-sitter).

The planter itself needs a bit of de-scaling once in a while, and this can be fixed by adding citric acid to water and placing it in the base. You have to remove the plants, first—check with supplier’s instructions.

Plantui retails for P15,500 each. To buy one, visit their Facebook page, or go to Boogi at 830 Arnaiz Ave., Makati City.
