As most do, I love having plants around the house. Unfortunately, they almost always end up dying within a couple of weeks. So when at the end of my first year as a student at MCT at Howest I was tasked with creating a project that would show everything I learned so far, I wanted to make something that would reduce the number of dead plants around the house. And so Plant’m was born.
I looked back to my previous plants and tried to think of the various reasons they didn’t survive. Mostly this was because I forgot to water them, watered them too much, or never let them see the light of day. That’s where Plant’m steps in and takes care of these things for you.
