Maintaining a successful indoor garden has never been so easy (or stylish) thanks to the Rotofarm by Bace. Inspired by NASA and its zero-gravity technology, the design boasts efficiency that will help you grow your favorite vegetables, herbs, and microgreens using less space, water, and energy. And best of all, it requires little effort on your part. Spend only five minutes a week cultivating the veggies and you'll be enjoying a bounty before you know it.

So, how does the Rotofarm work? Their innovation lies in mimicking zero-gravity—research on the International Space Station has shown that plants grow better sans gravitation. To imitate this, the device rotates your garden 360° every hour. This reduces the “growth-suppressing effects of gravity,” and it optimizes water and aeration of the roots as well as maximizes light exposure. The Rotofarm does this all while taking up three times less space than a flat garden, and the sleek design means that it can go in your kitchen or other parts of your home.

There are only a few steps you must take to get your garden growing. To begin, place the pre-seeded pods into plant slots and then fill the device with water and nutrients. Through the app, you’ll monitor and control the growth and, finally, enjoy your veggies.

Rotofarm is currently raising funds for production through Indiegogo. Reserve yours today by visiting their campaign.
