'Lilo' are digital herb planters that make it easier than ever to grow fresh herbs, veggies and flowers in your own home. With no green thumb required, the Lilo capsules and the compatible mobile app help you to cultivate your own tiny herb garden.

To use Lilo, simply plug the planter into the wall, insert the capsule of your choice and add water. Each capsule contains the nutrients necessary for plant growth, while the patented floating design of the pods allows for the roots to freely develop. The planter itself works by projecting the optimal light setting for herb growth. For an even more connected experience, you can use the Lilo’s mobile app to monitor and track the growth of your herbs.

The smart herb planters feature interchangeable capsules, meaning once you have finished growing one herb you can simply swap it out for another. Currently there are a number of different herb varieties to choose from, including mint, thyme, coriander, oregano, parsley, rosemary and chives, among many others.
