Though we're sure some of you will find a way.There are some people in the world who, try as they might, can never, ever keep an indoor plant alive. (Hint: me.) Here to save the day -- or at least the life of a few wax vines -- is Brooklyn designer Danielle Trofe, who has invented a whip-smart planter that does the watering for you.
Obviously, the system's uniformity limits the diversity of plants you're able grow; you could not, for instance, use a single Live Screen to raise both a cactus and an orchid, lest you water the cactus to death (or, conversely, parch the hell out of the orchid). So yes, hypothetically, you could still screw this up. But it'd take work. Sadly, you won't have the opportunity to find out; Trofe's design isn't in production. That said, she encourages anyone who's interested in manufacturing, distributing or buying the piece to contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
