City gardening has several challenges, a lack of space being one of the main ones. Trend Hunter Senior Writer and Research Expert Jana Pijak discusses her favorite examples of urban farming innovations, from mushroom harvesting logs to grid-inspired gardening apps and modern planting pods.
If saving money (especially in the long term) is a priority for you, New Orleans-based startup Earth Prime's iGardenX hydroponic home garden waters itself. If you're into growing your own ingredients at home, the 2funguys log is infused with spores and helps you harvest your own mushrooms at home. Ideal for apartment dwellers, an indoor planting pod is perfect for small spaces. City gardening is pointless if you don't have any green skills to start off with, which is where gardening apps like Gardening Squared come in.
