The Wise Planter

An OpenFab product! The Wise Planter is a post-smart planter. No gadgets, no sensors, no batteries. Basic physics lets you visually assess the needs of your favorite desktop plants.

The inner pot sits on a high quality spring which rests against the outer base. As the soil loses moisture, the pot slowly rises while the base remains in place. Eventually an adjustable elastic indicator ring is revealed to remind you to water.

You can review the design process of the Wise Planter on the blog. Here’s the first post. The Wise Planter is available for purchase on Etsy.
