The Seed Pod / Device for saving seeds

The Seed Pod
The Seed Pod

The Seed Pod is designed to help people easily save seeds from the plants that they grow in their homes. Saving seeds has many benefits, which include saving plant species and helping to contribute towards biodiversity.

Many find the process of saving seeds difficult. The Seed Pod has been designed and developed using a technology that indicates when your seeds are safe to be stored in a fridge. This eliminates any error regarding seed moisture content.

The Seed Pod uses silica gel to dry the seeds out as well as a moisture indicator to let you know when they're dry enough to be stored in a fridge where they can be kept for years.
