About

You can easily customize environmental conditions for your plants via the Bloomengine application available for Android and iOS devices. Watering and lighting times can be scheduled and even time-lapse settings can be set according to you or your plant's preferences. 

Bloomengine’s water tank can store up to 40oz of water so that you do not have to worry about re-filling it for anywhere between one to one month. The internal water pump which keeps the water circulating ensures that the water inside the tank always stays fresh.

Watering the plant in Bloomengine can be done without going through the process of opening and closing the water tank or lid. You can pour the water right over the top and simply enjoy the sight of water flowing down.

LED lighting chips are installed underneath the top portion of the device and provides the adequate amount of light necessary for plants to grow indoors. The lighting chips also emit a warm light to provide an elegant atmosphere for any interior.

We have applied enough brightness (about 10~25k lux) and light wavelength (about 380nm~780nm) of LED lighting to Bloomengine shown so you can easily grow plants indoors.

The elegant RGB light will change colors (it doesn't affect the plants) to match the atmosphere of the room. You can control the color of light through the Bloomengine smartphone app. 

The integrated Full HD camera shows your plant's real-time status by capturing a photo. You can select the time-lapse function to record the unbelievable moments of your plant growing during each stage.

A fan installed in Bloomengine for the ventilation of fresh air. This accelerates the plant growth by supporting the plant’s transpiration process. You will be able to see the leaves waving by the wind created by the fan.

The compressed soil we provide can be stored for an extended period of time when stored in a dry area before its use. To plant the seed, simply soak the compressed soil with water and place the seed on top of it. The soil is easy to replace even when you need to re-pot a plant and naturally decomposes to ease your burden.

※ Depending on the seed germination rate and indoor environmental conditions, using Bloomengine may not bud.(Typical seed germination rate about 70 ~ 90%, recommended room temperature 74 ~ 83 ℉ / 22 ~ 28 ℃)

Bloomengine aims to provide an environment of indoor cultivation for plants using the latest technology. Why?

Save Plants From Extinction

Across the planet, plants are threatened with extinction and are expected to disappear within several years. Beautiful flowers you see now could be considered historic species for future generations.

To prevent further plant extinction, Bloomengine will continue to develop newer products and share data on plants to safely and effectively cultivate an environment that can save plants from extinction. 

 Plant Book and Dictionary

Today, we can gather facts about plants from only photos and vague data. It is difficult to understand information about plants or to experience a wonderful moment like a flower's first bloom with such non-descriptive information.

Our plan is for Bloomengine users to share growth information with each other like sprouting times, growth progress, and first blooms with the best environmental condition and time-lapse videos, so people can easily understand the plant's lifecycle. This would be shared in our community or on Wikipedia as text data or GIF files.

Share The Moment

Our goal is not only to make better conditions for your plant indoors but also to help build bonds between people and plants.

We believe that Bloomengine will help everyone understand plants better and share the amazing moments of plants with others.

For A Better Place

We want to create better interior spaces through Bloomengine.

Bloomengine's design goals are (1) Making it easy to grow plants indoors. (2) It does not make the product stand out, but instead, makes the plant stand out. (3) It uses a simple design that will suit various indoor spaces.

You can make your interior space more special with Bloomengine. Always be with your pet-plants in your own home.

Risks and challenges

Why Kickstarter
- We are developing a new version of Bloomengine Color/Vision based on the first sample (Bluetooth version) which was successful. We hope to introduce our existence worldwide and to find supporters who have the same challenge we want to achieve. The pledges from supporters will be used for development and production.

Challenge
- What we are planning with Bloomengine is about a future life with plants beyond the Kickstarter campaign, hoping to share planting experience through our community and Wikipedia to prevent plant extinction and to practice plant book. It would be helpful to save the world and also serve as an educational method for future generations. To realize this goal, a Kickstarter campaign is the first step for Bloomengine, to offer more joyful planting with AR and VR, showing insects and butterflies for your plant's condition analysis in future.
