About

A vertical garden that allows plants to communicate directly to you. It will help you reignite your love of plants by giving you the confidence to look after them like a seasoned gardener.

Introducing the TelePLANTathic vertical garden.

Get all the benefits of having a garden, such as growing healthy organic food, creating beautiful aesthetics and providing habitat to support biodiversity. With this system you can have peace of mind that your plants are going to thrive even if you have a busy work life or if you need to go on holidays.

How does it work?

It is solar powered, recycles its water, runs off recycled laptop batteries and has an intelligent irrigation system that can be remote controlled from your smartphone. You will have full control of your irrigation, so if your plants send you a message saying they need more water…. No sweat, just turn irrigation on or increase the watering schedule with a few simple clicks from your smart phone.

The sensors from Flower Power technology communicate to the Raspberry Pi mini computer to monitor light, temperature, moisture and fertilizer in real time. Each plant has specific thresholds set to notify you with a warning message if any of the measurements go above or below that threshold.

By doing this we are working towards giving the plants a voice so they can teach you how to take care of them. With this system you will know exactly how your plants are going even if you are on the other side of the world.

Why is it good for you?

With one of these vertical gardens you will be able to grow 23 plants at a time. At the super market an average bunch of organic kale sells for about $5 each. Even if you only produce one crop per season you could be growing 92 bunches of kale per year. This means you could be saving up to $460 per year on food. Plus you get the added benefit having super fresh produce grown right on your doorstep and you will be doing something positive for the environment by reducing your food miles.

Grow the freshest herbs, make healthy green smoothies, garnish your meals or even just create a beautiful living artwork that brings fresh oxygen to your home.

Who am I and what do I want?

My name is Shane I am a professional vertical gardener and founder of Space Plants. I have found that my passion is to find ways to help people cherish plants just as I do. I am really excited to now have a fully functional working prototype and for the potential of where it is heading.

These gardens are like a Tamagotchi for the next generation, a way of getting people excited about growing plants.

This project has the ability to help the world in many ways, here is five I

* Intelligent irrigation - It will be efficiently using because the watering system turns on when it needs to and stays of when too wet. 

* Freely available healthy Organic food 

* Self sufficiency - will run without any human intervention 

* Environmentally friendly - they convert Co2 to oxygen and uses renewable energy 

* Transforms the aesthetics of any environment allowing more peace and wellbeing to exist.

There are so many amazing things that we can all learn from plants and this is what I wanted to share with as many people as I can.

Now that the first couple of working prototypes have been built, I want to continue to invest in fine tuning the technology, making them more user friendly.

If you see the value in what we are doing then now is the time to help make this a reality. Join us in helping people all around the world reignite their love of plants without feeling fear of neglecting the needs of their plants. The TelePLANTathic vertical garden is a revolutionary vertical gardening system built for the wellbeing of plants. When plants are healthy, healthy people will most likely be found around them too.
