Enjoy growing herbs or chili without effort. Botanium takes care of the plant for you, thanks to automated, soil-free growing.
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 gaet back to a healthy plant.
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)
WHAT YOU CAN GROW
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.
“This automated planter will revolutionize your growing game”
“Thanks to a great design this device won’t only help you grow your own plants and herbs, but it will also make your home look better.”
“This device is perfect for those who struggle to keep plants alive”
Since a pump waters the plant three times everyday, you don’t need to wonder if the plant needs watering or not.
Less roots, more green stuff
Since the plant gets easier access to water, nutrients and air (yes, the roots also need air), more resources are spent growing leaves.
Efficient water use
Using water more efficiently, Botanium can last for many weeks without a refill. That way you can return from the vacation and still have a living plant.
Instead of soil, Botanium uses small clay pebbles. Nutrients are then added to the water. This hydroponic style of growing is a sure way to get faster growth and bigger yields.
The art of soil free growing
Growing in porous stones instead of soil, the plant is automatically watered several times per day with nutrient-rich water. This growing technique – called hydroponics – is not a new method of growing. It has been around for many years and has been the subject of much research. It is a far more effective way of growing than traditional agriculture, and hydroponic vegetables are therefore becoming more and more common.
DESIGNED IN SWEDEN
Botanium is designed in Sweden, a country that embodies the Scandinavian design movement. This style – often referred to as minimalist – developed during the Second World War, with clean, simple lines and a strong emphasis on functionality. A common theme in this tradition is that beautiful and functional objects should be available to all.
Urban gardening without sunlight
Did you know that you can grow inside year-round, even if you live in a cold and dark country? Even here in Sweden it’s easy, and you don’t need a special “growing light”. Just put your plant under a standard CFL, fluorescent lamp or LED. As long as it’s not an old incandescent light bulb, the plants will grow, even in the grimmest of winters.
