Risks and challenges
Packaging - The GreenStalk is a large lightweight planter. This presents challenges for product packaging. We currently use shrink wrap to package our product for shows and wholesale markets. However, the plastic warps over time and is very time consuming to put together. We are looking to add full color boxes with carrying handles as a packaging option. This will help us expand into more stores and bring GreenStalk to areas that need it, but don't have access to our system.
Additional Features - We love the GreenStalk just as is (and so do our customers and reviewers!), but we are looking to add additional features to the system. We will be adding a feature to transform the GreenStalk into a complete self-watering system. This is really exciting, because it takes all the guesswork out of gardening. The self-watering add-ons will be especially helpful for community gardens and even commercial growers.
Distribution - We ship GreenStalk all over the US and have sent the system as far away as India. However, the shipping cost to the west coast can cost upwards of $50. We charge a low flat rate to ensure no one is unable to purchase a GreenStalk due to shipping costs. Unfortunately, this is unsustainable long term. We need to establish west coast distribution to keep shipping costs low for all of our customers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
