Gardening is an extremely soothing activity and can be considered therapeutic. I may not engage in it at all times, but whenever I do, I feel quite calm and relaxed. Growing, nurturing, and tending to plants can be pretty satisfying, allowing you to destress, and letting your worries fade away. We don’t always have access to outdoor gardens, so an excellent solution to that issue is indoor gardens! Indoor gardening is a modern solution that enables you to grow, and be surrounded by plants, and keeps you connected to nature. From a household plant cultivator that doubles up as a compost bin, to a minimalist plant shelf that you can carry around in your home – we have a myriad range of options when it comes to growing plants in your home. These unique, innovative, and thoughtful designs promise to take care of all your indoor gardening needs. I don’t know about you, but I’m really considering trying one of them out, I wouldn’t mind adding indoor gardening to my daily routine!

1. Paradise

Looking much like a rolling cart, Paradise is an automated plant cultivator and compost bin that utilizes integrated technology to alert users when the plants or compost need to be paid attention to. It is designed to reduce domestic waste and is built of modular pieces that work in tandem to create optimal conditions for growing plants. Starting from its top, Paradise features an LED strip that pours artificial sunlight over integrated planters located on top of Paradise’s first module.

Why is it noteworthy?

While spending more time at home has brought some much-needed rejuvenation to our interior design, it has also contributed to a global increase in domestic waste. Inspired to change that, designer Robin Akira created Paradise, a household plant cultivator with integrated compost bins and an odor-sealing lid to make use of and reduce our domestic waste.

What we like

  • Integrates greenery into our interior spaces
  • An odor-sealing lid

What we dislike

  • Could be messy to have such a design in our indoor living space
  • It’s a concept!

2. The LetPot LPH-Max

The LetPot LPH-Max is a tabletop planter that makes gardening at home super easy, even for those who don’t have a green thumb and end up killing most of their plants. The LetPot LPH-Max takes control of the entire plant’s cultivation cycle, from seed to sprout to harvest… and it does so without any soil!

Why is it noteworthy?

The LetPot LPH-Max is a smart hydroponic plant cultivator that works entirely autonomously. It provides the plant with the water and nutrition it needs and even comes with an automatic sun-mimicking LED panel that gives the plants the light they need to photosynthesize. This effectively streamlines the entire growth process so there’s no soil or dirt involved, and you don’t even need to keep the plants in a well-lit area.

What we like

  • You don’t need to worry about tending to your kitchen garden because the LPH-Max does it all for you
  • The LetPot LPH-Max can handle growing up to 21 plant pods simultaneously across a variety of flower, herb, and leafy green species

What we dislike

  • The design is restricted to 21 pots, not allowing for growth for interested users.

3. Blume


Called Blume, this special planter has been equipped with a trellis that can be connected according to your specifications, allowing it to grow alongside your plant. You can link up the multiple parts using a threaded knob, and they can spread in different directions – upward, downwards, sideways, etc.

Why is it noteworthy?

This planter is made from various materials. The base uses cement while the trellises are made from wood and the knobs are metal. The base planter is 8 inches high while the trellis can go as high as 30 inches depending on the design and style that you want. While the official photos show natural cement, white, and gold, there are also custom colors available if you want your planter to be more colorful and add to your plants’ natural greens and browns.

What we like

  • Customizable and made-to-order
  • Grows alongside your plant

What we dislike

  • The structure seems fragile and may have trouble holding onto a heavy plant

4. Ta’care


This minimal plant shelf is called Ta’care, and it is super easy to carry around, allowing you to move your plants wherever you want them to be, irrespective if you have a lot of space or less of it. It features a clean design with a simple form and subtle color. The designer focused primarily on functionality, rather than aesthetics. What the plant shelf lacks in decoration, makes up with the fact that it allows the plants to be the center of attention, as they deserve to be.

Why is it noteworthy?

It is made from simple metal tubes and sheets and the top part forms a handle that allows you to carry the shelf with the plants so you can bring them to the balcony or near the window so they can get natural sunlight or bring to the living room to protect them from the weather.

What we like

  • Focuses more on functionality rather than decoration
  • Allows you to move your plants around

What we dislike

  • The design itself may occupy a lot of space in your home

5. The LG tiiun


Designed to be a unique and innovative home appliance, the LG tiiun allows you to grow your own veggies and herbs in the comfort of your home. It mimics the size of a dorm refrigerator and features a height of 3 feet. It has been equipped with two shelves that hold 6 all-in-one seed packages and seed kits.

Why is it noteworthy?

The term tiiun comes from the Korean word meaning ‘to sprout’ and is LG’s way of indicating that this appliance is an all-in-one self-sufficient garden. The appliance creates a perfect microclimate and all the right conditions for the plants to grow, even mimicking light cycles so you could potentially keep your tiiun anywhere in a room without worrying about access to proper sunlight. LG’s Flexible Weather Control System creates the ideal situations for organic growth while also keeping pests at bay. An internal watering system also delivers water to the plants (8 times a day) to keep them hydrated. All you really have to do is install the tiiun and sit back while your plants grow on their own!

What we like

  • A foolproof way to grow your own veggies and herbs in the comfort of your home
  • Fun and simple even for those with no gardening experience

What we dislike

  • The form is a bit too bulky and un-organic

6. The MULTO


Created in collaboration with multiple award-winning industrial designers Xavier Houy (who has a Red Dot Design Award and a Platinum A’ Design Award to his name, among others), MULTO is the result of over 6 years’ worth of research and development, go towards what Prêt à Pousser calls the ultimate vertical kitchen garden, capable of growing everything from microgreens to root vegetables.

Why is it noteworthy?

Prêt à Pousser’s most significant achievement with the MULTO is its new hydroponic technology. Referred to as their ‘Ebb & Flow’ system, MULTO’s water reservoir comes with a discreet pump that periodically pumps water to the roots, and then drains it out – similar to an ocean’s tide. Working similarly to a hydroponic gardening system (but engineered to be better), this enables the circulation of nutrients and allows the plant’s roots to absorb more oxygen, creating a better yield. How much better? Well, Prêt à Pousser’s founder Romain Behaghel claims that MULTO’s Ebb & Flow increases your plant’s yield by 200%, giving you twice as many fruits, veggies, or leafy greens.

What we like

  • New hydroponic technology
  • You can simply expand your produce by plugging a new tier on top to create your own vertical farm

What we dislike

7. Plant Light Nº1


Drawing the fine line between a functional piece of plant-growing hardware and an elegant tabletop lighting accessory, Plant Light Nº1 turns your interior space into an ideal set of conditions for growing plants.

Why is it noteworthy?

The light comes with a neo-industrial design aesthetic, and sports a surface to rest your planter on. Above it sits a height-adjustable lamp that comes equipped with full-spectrum LEDs that mimic the light quality (color), light intensity (brightness), and photoperiod (duration) of the sun, allowing any plant to grow indoors.

What we like

  • Comes with a matrix of full-spectrum 90+ CRI LEDs that mimic the sun in a way that sets PL1 apart
  • A built-in timer allows PL1 to intuitively switch on or off, providing the right duration of light for your plants

What we dislike

  • It’s not available yet!

8. The LUA

The LUA is one ideal solution for those with pet plants. But, of course, not many people will understand why you have such but don’t worry about what they think.

Why is it noteworthy?

For desk plants, you may consider getting this LUA. It’s a plant lighting solution that can further make your favorite plant stand out. We understand how it can be challenging to care for indoor plants because of insufficient lighting. But there are solutions like the LUA. Indoor plants help the surrounding by keeping the atmosphere fresh and clean. In addition, for some people, plants help in providing emotional stability. Just one look at your plants and you can already calm down and destress.

What we like

  • Boasts a clean, white tone for a simple and refreshing look
  • The design is very minimalist as no unnecessary wires are exposed

What we dislike

9. The Oasis


Not all homes are built to have gardens, but that doesn’t mean you can’t run your own mini farm where you are. This concept for a hydroponic smart farm is something that can fit in whatever space you may be staying in.

Why is it noteworthy?

The Oasis is a smart farm that’s meant for home, and it can grow your vegetables and store them before you consume them. The design is inspired by both mountains and desert oases, hence the name. Some of the items that were used to create a concept design for it include blenders, coffee makers, smart speakers, etc. What the designer came up with is something that looks like a mini-greenhouse with a transparent cover. It kind of reminds me of a bread container, except we get plants and vegetables inside.

What we like

  • There’s a part here called Fresh Keeper where you can store the vegetables once you’ve harvested them without needing to move them to the refrigerator
  • There’s an app that you can use to monitor your plants and your water levels

What we dislike

10. CURA


CURA is an all-encompassing plant-growth apparatus that takes care of the light and water requirements for any plant. Its automated systems can be programmed to suit the light requirements for flowering plants, air-purifying plants, herbaceous plants, or decorative plants, and when CURA’s halo-shaped lamp isn’t nourishing your plant, it can be turned into an ambient light that adds a pop of color to your space!

Why is it noteworthy?

Available in 3 sizes and across floor-standing, tabletop, and wall-mounted varieties, CURA is a halo-shaped horticultural light that’s designed to activate and promote plant growth. Powered by OSRAM LEDs, the lamp can output different wavelengths of light that help create the right growth conditions for different types of plants. CURA comes with presets for Herbs & Greens, Flowers & Fruits, Germination, Indoor Garden Plants, and more, while also handling different stages in a plant’s growth cycle, from germination to flower and fruit-bearing stages.

What we like

  • The lamp can either be programmed to work automatically or can be configured using CURA’s smartphone app, allowing you to effectively play horticulturist with your indoor plants
  • The lamp in Ambient Mode can also be configured to dynamically respond to music

What we dislike
