About this project

 CARA DE PLANTA which literally means plant face, is a unique face shaped DIY vertical gardening system that makes amazingly lush gardens!

 WHAT IS CARA DE PLANTA?

Vertical gardens are very appealing and offer plenty of benefits, but making them is a lot of work. Cara de Planta, which means plant face in english, because it is literally a fun face, is a 100% PET DIY vertical gardening system that persons of all ages and sizes can use to make their own personal, professional vertical garden without hassle and in a short period of time. You don’t even need to prepare the surface, since Cara de Planta has a waterproof barrier to keep the wall dry and stain free.

There are two models available. The boy, for outdoor gardens, and the girl, for indoor ones. The boy lets water through so that one irrigation line at the top of a garden, with the aid of gravity, will water the whole garden. The girl contains water, so it won’t drip or stain floors or walls. The water is then recirculated to the substrate by capillarity with a special flap.

Plants grow out of two outlets in each Cara de Planta, the hair and the mouth. This feature does not exist in any other system and it provides for a lush garden from day one. Plants can be grown hydroponically or in soil and irrigation can be made manually or automatically. No other system gives you these options. Also, Cara de Planta includes its own screws to make things easier!

Cara de Planta is a docile system. Not only with its owner, but with its inhabitants, the plants. Its fabulous design gives the plants enough root space to allow their healthy and full development. Besides, Cara de Planta allows plant’s roots to self air prune, keeping them healthy and fibrous.

PUT A GREEN SMILE ON YOUR FACES AND SPACES WITH CARA DE PLANTA, THE SYSTEM THAT IS ALIVE WITH THE PLANTS!

WHAT WILL WE USE YOUR MONEY FOR?

Currently, Cara de Planta is not fully available in the U.S. and many other places...it's barely available anywhere really, since we are just starting out...so what we want to do with your pledges is to try to make it easily available for anyone...this is a product for DIYers, and we know the U.S. has an awesome DIY culture....we love this! we think we have a great product and we hope you do too!  Please support us by pledging or spreading the word!

So here comes the pitch then ;)

Note: The dimensions on the $18 reward are wrong.  Correct dimensions are 16.5" x 11.5"

INSTALLATION

PACKAGING

 Each box contains 12 individual pieces which make 1m2.

               

1.The image below shows all the pieces in place, ready to receive (in this case) organic soil and plants.

 2. The image below shows the garden during the installation of the plants.  It's a very fast and straightforward process.

 3.The image below shows the garden just days after its completion.  The garden can look full and luscious from inception if the right size of plans is used.  In another case, plants that are smaller will grow in a span of months to make a full grown garden covered in plants and foliage.

 REWARDS

Risks and challenges

We are ready to go! We have all of our suppliers in place, as well as the process. We even have some stock ready to be shipped! We promise to deliver your rewards very early in the process, so you can start making your own green walls and enjoying its multiple benefits!

One amazing problem we could run into is running out of stock, in which case we would take a little longer than December to supply. It would be awesome, and we know you, as part of the Kickstarter community would understand and support us! However, we will do our best to not let any of you down!
