Throughout history, science and technology have been good allies for agriculture. Many inventions have helped to improve farming, the ways to irrigate, fertilize and produce, and to harvest the crops… University graduates and scientists devote their professional careers to this field. Gardening also profits from this improvements.
But none of these improvements have reached private homes. For sure, indoor plants already benefit of improved fertilizers and pesticides; they also can already build on the best substrates sold in supermarkets and in garden centers. But I believe that many improvements of agriculture have not yet reached private homes. There are many fans of gardening, and they use to have both indoor as well as outdoor plants; but the systems to cultivate these plants are too adequate, and people become frustrated because their plants die because they are not able to take care of them.
Vitaming Living is a company looking for ways to bring some of the advances of agriculture and gardening to private homes. To achieve this, the company is designing and manufacturing a number of products for indoor plants, like flowerpots specially designed for giving the right dose of irrigation or systems of drip irrigation also permitting to administer substances like liquid fertilizers.
Vitaming Living is a good example of a company combining design and innovation to bring them to the daily life of people, in this case, keeping indoor plants. In cases like this, we can see how technological advances in many fields of industry or economy can be brought to other fields and areas of daily life.
