Modern Sprout’s planters were designed by Nick Behr and Sarah Burrows, two Chicago apartment dwellers who wanted to grow their own garden, but didn’t have the space. Struggling to maintain plants in their apartment, they tried hydroponic planters, which yielded results, but were expensive and unappealing to look at. As a result, they designed their own planterthe Modern Sprouta hydroponic, self-watering system that hides its mechanism beneath a reclaimed wood planter box.
The hidden mechanism delivers nutrient solution to the roots of three different plants, helping them grow quickly and successfully without the mess of soil or the hassle of scheduled waterings. The system has different settings based on the plant type, ensuring that plants will receive the proper amount of nutrients from herbs to flowers. The reclaimed wood planter box has a rustic look that will complement contemporary interiors.
