Herbablock is a modular and hydroponic-friendly house plant system that caters to urban dwellers. In urban areas, space and lighting can often be scarce, which makes owning house plants difficult. Our wall-mounted and space-efficient design incorporates water and lighting elements to promote plant growth and to make up for deficiencies in urban spaces. We want to make city gardening more feasible and to encourage urban dwellers to own house plants, which have numerous health and psychological benefits. Our ultimate goal is to help city people better reconnect with nature.
