Smart pot / flowerpot

Smart pot
Smart pot

Houseplants are popular additions to our modern life. To provide a foolproof solution to maintaining ideal soil moisture, we’ve devised a “smart pot”, made of special clay with hollow walls. The space between the inner and outer wall serves as a water reservoir. The unique porous property of the inner wall draws water into the soil for ideal soil moisture. The exterior of the outer wall is glazed to prevent evaporation. Underneath the glaze, a hygrometric graph serves as a moisture meter, which disappears to tell us when to water. The smart pot takes the form of a flowerpot , but it's definitely an innovation flowerpot in material and concep.
