With spring in the air, the welcome of greenery is ever present. The ideal of bringing the outside in is still proving popular and is expanding beyond the living wall.
Indoor vertical gardens produce microgreens, which grow in 10 days with fertilised water and requires no soil. The EcoQube frame houses the microgreens making it a compact and convenient design suitable for all interiors.
“EcoQube’s seed pads are all made from natural, 100 percent combustible fibres, and provide just enough water to allow the plants to grow. The designers claim that EcoQube can grow up to $25 worth of micro-veggies in a little over a week, and pays for itself after only one month of growing.” Inhabitat
The living table, designed by Habitat Horticulture, also offers a low-maintenance planter. This plant filled living table has a system, which auto-regulates the living conditions mimicking how plants naturally grow while illuminating the need for drainage.
“As far as planting, the Living Table system is designed for low-growing, ground cover type plants that won’t grow tall enough to touch the glass. Standard 4” plant containers or smaller can be placed directly onto the Habitat Horticulture Growtex capillary mat or plants can be directly planted into the table base using any standard potting soil.” Inhabitat
These two examples are a great way to add some greenery into the home or any scheme. Minimal maintenance, with great green practical results.
