Botanist Pot

November 2018

Problem

People are unable to keep their precious plants alive due to inexperience or a busy schedule.

Research

  • People are overwhelmed by the requirements of taking care of plants.

  • Common concerns are overwatering, under watering, not enough sunlight, or too much.

  • Even if people are given books on how to care for the plants, it isn’t enough to change behavior.

  • People feel that even when they are following instructions, they still do something wrong.

Concept

Provide inexperienced plant owners with a tool that will allow them to learn the needs of their plant through a smart, self watering, voice responsive pot while simultaneously keeping it alive during the learning process.
