Green works: Plants water themselves with new plant pot

22.02.2010 Plants : Workplace : Homestead 3.0

Stockholm – Dead plants will soon be a sorrow of the past. Greenwork’s ‘Moving Hedge’ is the world’s first self-watering, mobile plant wall.

A tank built into the structure, which only requires refilling every five weeks, passes moisture directly to the soil, meaning that plants can be left untended for long periods. In addition, the smooth running wheels allow for it to be moved around. ‘Moving Hedge’ is suitable for domestic spaces as well as the office.

Urban spaces are increasingly seeing innovative solutions for bringing the outdoors, indoors. We recently wrote about a lamp that stimulates plants’ growth, and our Homestead 3.0 trend report looks at recent innovations for compact spaces.
