The terraplanter is an all-natural planter with a porous exterior that relies on a hydroponic system that doesn't require any dirt or soil in order to grow seeds.
To use the terraplanter, consumers just need to spread the seeds they'd like to grow across the exterior of the planter. The seeds will fit into the grooves on the surface, and will remain in place. Instead of watering the soil within the planter as you would traditionally, the water is placed inside of the terraplanter. After a few days, the seeds sitting on the exterior will soak up the water from within the planter and begin to sprout roots. With the terraplanter's unique texture, the roots will hold onto the planter and grow around it. If consumers wish to reuse the planter for another purpose, they can simply cut away the roots and peel the plant off.
The terraplanter is currently being funded on Kickstarter, where it's already on track to become one of the top 10 most funded campaigns on the platform after surpassing its $20,000 funding goal and accumulating over $3.2 million in funding support.
