HydroPod is a self-watering planter designed to take care of your plants for you, so that you can celebrate them. It uses a hydroponic wick system to keep plants hydrated, without any risk of under or over watering them. Inspired by the traditional Japanese practice of ‘forest bathing’ or ‘shinrin yoku’, HydroPod brings the element of nature and the mindfulness around it, into your surroundings.
Each HydroPod is fully handcrafted and free blown by expert craftsmen in the UK, who intuitively shape the glass using traditional techniques. As a result of crafting the glass entirely by hand, your HydroPod will bear distinct characteristics meaning no two pieces are exactly the same. You can find the number of your unique edition etched on the base.
We all know how important it is to keep plants healthy and to water them regularly, but sometimes ‘too much’ or ‘too little’ can be the problem. With all their different needs in mind, we have designed a solution which allows your plants to look after themselves. The cotton wick simply delivers water from the reservoir to the soil.
Celebrate the element of surprise in nature from the comfort of your own home. We are designed to have connectivity with the natural world but often we lack the time for this practice. HydroPod allows you to observe and engage with your plant's root growth through the handblown transparent glass, and to enjoy the success of your thriving plants.
As we are currently spending 85-90% of our time indoors and cities are becoming more concentrated, we find ourselves bringing plants into our homes and making them a calmer place to live in. Traditionally, this has been a way in which many people relax.
Plants not only clean your air and create a healthier environment, we find they are a great way to make your space personal. Inspired by minimalistic Japanese Design and a balanced philosophy, HydroPod provides exactly that. Just the right amount of water delivered from reservoir to plant, presented in an honest, handmade design that can fit anywhere in your home.
