This indoor plater is app-connected and aims to become an educational garden tool for promoting a sustainable future.

The 'Edn' planter by Edntech is a hanging planter that will guide people through the planting process step by step. The planter links to a companion app that provides up to date information about the state and progress of their vegetable garden. The educational garden comes with a built-in watering tank and nutrient supply that the user will have to fill periodically and has space for 21 different herbs or vegetables.

The selection of different plants is logged into the companion app, which can then teach users how to identify different steps of a plant's growth and notify them when their miniature crop is ready to be harvested.
