The Green Wheel Rotary Garden

The Green Wheel aims to fit more plants into a smaller area through its circular design. The plants are arranged around a light source in the centre of the wheel and the lamp which is placed closer to the plants helps reduce lighting consumption, while the gravity’s effect helps to optimize herbs and vegetables production. The prototype is composed of an outer solid surface case that hides a engine which rotates the plants, a water reservoir and a pump for automatic plant irrigation. In the perforated inner wheel, each vase contains coco fiber, which provides perfect support for the plant and its roots. Also an application controls the amount of illumination, temperature of the light and water levels.
