Planty is an Internet-connected planter that allows you to monitor and water plants on-the-go via a mobile app. The Internet-connected Smart Pot gives your plants the unprecedented ability to communicate their needs to you. Planty connects to the Internet via Wifi and monitors your plants’ soil, temperature, light and water levels. All this data is delivered directly to you via the Planty app on your smartphone so you can react appropriately. The mission is to bring nature into your life without guilt or stress. Over time, Planty’s algorithms also enable it to learn more about the perfect conditions for your plant and provides you even better suggestions on how to help it thrive and grow. In the future, the ultimate goal for the company is take what they have learnt from building Planty for the masses and take it to Uzbekistan and other countries where low-cost agtech innovation is greatly needed to address issues of hunger and starvation due to low crop yields.
