Self-Watering Planters

'Amphora' Simplifies the Process of Growing Herbs Indoors

— December 14, 2015 — Eco
Grow herbs in this ceramic, hydroponic self-watering planter and never worry about having to water plants again. After growing your own herbs for cooking, you'll never need to buy those expensive packs of herbs at the grocery store again.

This planter is beautifully designed and extremely easy to use. The 'Amphora' holds enough water for the lifetime of a plant. The roots will grow directly into the water and continue descending as the water level drops. By the time the water has almost run out, you'll have a full-grown plant. Just harvest and use your hyper-local, fresh herbs however you want. Right now, there are six different herb seed kits so you can grow your favorite.

By supporting Cloud Farms' Indiegogo campaign, you'll be helping designer Bradley Ferrada to redefine at-home agriculture.
Trend Themes
1. Hydroponic Herb Planters - The trend of hydroponic self-watering planters for indoor herb gardening will continue to gain popularity as people look to reduce their environmental footprint and have more control over their food supply.
2. Automated Plant Care Products - There is an opportunity for more innovative plant care products to be automated in order to cater to busy professionals and those with less experience in gardening.
3. Urban Agriculture - As more people move to cities and grow their own herbs and plants at home, there will be a need for urban agriculture solutions and products that are tailored to small spaces.
Industry Implications
1. Home and Garden - The self-watering planter trend will disrupt the home and garden industry as people look for more sustainable and high-tech ways to grow plants indoors.
2. Food and Beverage - Increased use of hydroponic herb planters may disrupt the food and beverage industry as consumers shift towards hyperlocal and organic foods.
3. Technology - As the demand for automated plant care products increases, there is an opportunity for the technology industry to create innovative solutions that are more accessible and easy to use.
