This is why everyone loves the smartGärten
With our indoor garden, you'll harvest crisp vegetables and fresh herbs that you can't get at the supermarket. Thanks to the high-quality, regional components, the smartGarden is also a stylish piece of designer furniture. Even without a green thumb, you can easily grow your own plants with the smartGarten. Through built-in sensors & app you always know what your plants just need.
1. You can't get fresher, tastier & crunchier veggies than these
Supermarket vegetables are bred for long storage times and transport routes - we don't need that. With our smartGarten you always have fresh, crisp veggies directly on your plate. On average, you harvest 5 times more with a smartGarten than in soil and still have the greatest variety. Choose between 6 different basil varieties, rare chilies and many other plants. Or decide for yourself what you want to spice up your food with our empty cups.
2. Designer piece made in Hamburg
Our smartGärten are made exclusively with high quality materials such as oak and stainless steel in Hamburg. The gardens are made by hand and finished with spray wax. The integrated lighting gives a pleasant, sunny yellow light in your home. And the best part is, none of your friends have a garden like this.
3. Thanks to the simplePlant app, you always know what to do
The simplePlant app always gives you accurate data about what you need to do and when, via the Bluetooth connection to the smartGarten. The integrated sensor technology measures the fill level and nutrient content for optimal plant growth. The efficient LED lighting provides the perfect wavelength for photosynthesis.v
4. Gardening without pests & dirt

The team behind simplePlant
After years of tinkering, testing & optimizing we are incredibly happy to finally garden together with you! It was a long way from the first experiments in a 2-room apartment in Hamburg-Barmbek to a production-ready start-up product.
In collaboration with the University of Hamburg, we are researching our smartGärten together with the Institute of Plant Sciences and Microbiology. The studies focus on optimizing the harvest in terms of nutrient content and biomass, minimizing the use of resources, and comparisons of growing in hydroponics and soil.
Any further questions?No problem, here are the most frequently asked questions
Why are simplePlant and the smartGardens sustainable?
First and foremost, smartGärten are sustainable because they keep your plants alive for a long time. Thus, for example, you do not have to constantly buy new, plastic-packed herbs in the supermarket, which in addition often have long transport routes behind them. At the same time, the hydroponic system ensures extremely low water & fertilizer consumption. In addition, we take special care to use sustainable materials that we source from local partners.
What distinguishes the smartGarten from other smart indoor gardens?
Unlike other Smart Indoor Gardens, the smartGärten are not made of plastic, but of oak wood and stainless steel. So it is sustainable and made of materials that are safe for health. At the same time, you can read unique sensor data through the intuitive app for optimal growth. In addition, the modular system allows an enormous variety of plants and the choice between efficient hydroponics and classic soil.
What distinguishes hydroponics from soil?
With hydroponics, the seeds are in a substrate and the roots are suspended in a water-based nutrient solution. This avoids the known problems of growing with soil: dirt, pests, wasted water and fertilizer, and suboptimal growth.
How much power do the smartGärten use?
The maximum power consumption is 18 watts for the smartGarten S, 36 watts for the smartGarten M and 48 watts for the smartGarten X. Most of the time, however, the smartGärten consume about 70% of the power mentioned.
Are the seeds in the simpleCup plantbeds BIO?
Yes, all simpleCups are pre-seeded with BIO seeds. We use organic and biodynamic seeds of seed-stable varieties of Bingenheimer Saatgut AG.
Why are plants from the smartGarten healthier than from the supermarket?
The plants are healthier because they are the best possible BIO seeds and you harvest the plants fresh. Thus, there are no pollutants and the nutrients can not escape.
