Stylish Hydroponic Planter Kickerstarter

by Michael Diedrick on Apr 12, 2013

Modern Sprout is a side project of one of our favorite clients.  They've created a windowsill planter box that’s "simple, self-sustaining, and naturally stylish."  It's a micro-hydroponics system that automatically waters and nourishes the plants, and you just need to give it water and nutrients once every few weeks or so.  The hydroponics system is hidden inside the box, and requires no dirt, only water and nutrients and electricity, and they have a solar cell that solves the need to plug in.  Very smart!  Nice work Sarah.
