The Plant Kit by designer Alex Hofmans-Walter allows urban consumers a compact and easy way to put together and cultivate their own gardens when they don't have the plot of land or space to conventionally do so. The kit comes with a series of tools and materials to put together a sustainable yard that can fit on balconies or indoor spaces and offer fresh food and greenery.
The main focus to the Plant Kit's design is allowing consumers to grow fresh plants in small spaces with an accompanying app. The kit features a sleek seed hand dispenser that releases pods directly into the soil. The pods can be placed inside accompanying flower points and monitored via the Planter app. The app allows consumers to track growth over a two week process.
