"Self-dissolving fertilizer tablets that make feeding plants a breeze."
Green Profit Magazine
"You have water, so why do we need to expend energy, release carbon, and spend money to ship a liquid?"
"Success with growing a plant, connects you with nature, brings you into a community"
San Diego Union Tribune
"Houseplants offer us a way to connect with nature even in the confines of our homes"
“So glad to see leading firms like McKinsey featuring articles like this. There certainly always comes a risk with driving change as a business leader but that's what makes it hard, rewarding and fun! Now more than ever before, more people have a sense of their own mortality and how that connects with the health of their communities and the environment. We are so fortunate to be uniquely positioned to be able to tackle these problems with our technology that makes a very simple, practical step in the right direction. Ari and I both believe business is mostly driven by the consumer and more people now want products that make things easier, so there is more time to do what matters most to them, and they want products that have a mission and make the world a better place. And so do we.”
