Photoblog: Own Greens at the Floriade

Last month we already announced that our PlantHome Pro would be on display at the Floriade in Almere. Last week we paid a visit to this world horticultural exhibition that only takes place once every ten years. In this blog we would like to show you how our PlantHome Pro is doing over there!

The Floriade is a world horticultural exhibition where all the big names from the horticultural world come together to present their products once every ten years. This year the Floriade will take place from 14 April to 9 October in Almere.
The special thing about this location is that Almere is the youngest city in the Netherlands and has special architecture that blends seamlessly into nature!

The theme of this edition of the Floriade is 'Growing Green Cities', where everything revolves around solutions that make cities healthier, greener and more fun. This theme is now more important than ever, as by 2050 a staggering 68% of the world's population will live in cities! An important part of Growing Green Cities is sustainable food production in the city.

And that is precisely why Own Greens fits so well within this theme! With our PlantHome Pro it is possible to grow your own fresh vegetables and herbs at home in a small area without pesticides or other harmful chemicals.

The PlantHome Pro has three growing layers on which multiple growing bowls can be placed. On each layer, you can grow up to 30 small herbal plants or 6 large lettuce heads at a time! Above each layer there’s an LED-lamp to ensure that your plants will always have enough light to grow. Moreover, you only have to fill the growing bowls with water and the supplied mineral pills, so you don't have to mess with potting soil!

You can come and admire our PlantHome Pro in the cooking studio of the ‘Belevingskas’. At this location, there’s also a show area where visitors can be surprised by knowledge, ideas and activities. And of course, you can see the fresh vegetables and herbs in our PlantHome Pro with your own eyes!
