This is why the smartGarten is the press favorite among indoor gardens
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 smartGarten is also a stylish piece of designer furniture. Even without a green thumb, you can easily grow your own plants with the smartGarten. Thanks to built-in sensors and an app, you always know what your plants need.
1. you can't get fresher, tastier & crunchier than this
Supermarket vegetables are bred for long storage 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 choose what you want to spice up your food with our empty cups.
2. designer piece made in Hamburg
Our smartGardens are made exclusively with high quality materials such as oak and stainless steel in Hamburg. The gardens are handmade 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 precise data on what to do and when via the Bluetooth connection to the smartGarten. The integrated sensor system measures the fill level and nutrient content for optimal plant growth. The efficient LED lighting provides the perfect wavelength for photosynthesis.
4. gardening without pests & dirt
With our smartGardens you can focus on the beauty of gardening. Our hydroponic system eliminates the need for soil. This means you don't have to worry about pests or dirt. Our simpleCups are 100% compostable and filled with biodynamic Demeter seeds.
Frequently asked questions
What distinguishes the smartGarten E from the smartGarten M?
The smartGarten E differs from the smartGarten M in two respects:
Firstly, instead of the sensor bar that is read out via the app, it has a level indicator directly on the device. So you know with a quick glance how much water your smartGarten needs.
Second, it is made of sustainable Hevea wood instead of oak. We upcycle leftover wood from former natural rubber plantations.
This allows us to offer the smartGarten E, a highly practical yet aesthetically pleasing indoor garden that costs you significantly less: The best price / harvest ratio!
Why are simplePlant and the smartGärten sustainable?
First and foremost, smartGärten are sustainable because they keep your plants alive for a long time. This means, for example, that you don't have to constantly buy new, plastic-packed herbs from the supermarket, which often have long transport routes behind them. At the same time, the hydroponic system ensures extremely low water & fertilizer consumption. Furthermore, we take special care to use sustainable materials, which we source from local partners.
What distinguishes the smartGarten from other smart indoor gardens?
The smartGärten, unlike other Smart Indoor Gardens, 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 via 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, waste of water and fertilizer, and suboptimal growth.
What is the power consumption of the smartGärten?
The maximum power consumption is 18 watts for the smartGarten S, 36 watts for the smartGarten M and E and 48 watts for the smartGarten X. However, most of the time the smartGardens consume about 70% of the mentioned power.
Are the seeds in the simpleCups BIO?
Yes, all simpleCups are pre-seeded with organic seeds. We use organic and biodynamic seeds of seed-stable varieties from Bingenheimer Saatgut AG.
Why are plants from the smartGarten healthier than from the supermarket?
The plants are healthier because they are the best possible organic seeds and you harvest the plants fresh. Thus, there are no pollutants and the nutrients can not escape.

The team behind simplePlant
After years of tinkering, testing & optimizing, we are incredibly happy to finally be gardening 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 smartGardens 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.
