“GreenSpacers’ sells soil-free plants exclusively because they are easier to maintain and nearly impossible to kill,” says Noah Berk, GreenSpacers CEO.
Columbia, MD (PRWEB) July 20, 2012
Whether it’s clean lines, modern, Southern country charm, or contemporary classic, a home is a reflection of the owner - and the décor their personality. The paint, the furniture, the artwork and the accessories, the homeowner carefully chooses each element and brings them all together. Going to the local “big box” retailer to find a plant and container to be the perfect accent means being faced with a limited number of options. Not only that, the homeowner really has no idea how the plant and container combination will look inside their home. Creativity blocked!
GreenSpacers’ founder and CEO Noah Berk realized that people use plants as much for their aesthetic qualities as their functionality. This realization led to the launch a first-of-its-kind catalogue with seventeen individual species of plants with more than 40 combinations of containers for each, that’s almost 700 unique styles - an option for nearly every home design situation.
The catalogue is part of GreenSpacers’ Kickstarter campaign, a fundraiser aimed at consumers to jumpstart the trend of hydroculture in the U.S. Predominantly used in Europe for the past 40 years, hydroculture is a method of rooting plants in water and a clay aggregate, eliminating soil all together. The benefits of hydroculture plants versus soil plants are numerous, including faster growth, easier maintenance, longer life span, and better air purification.
“GreenSpacers’ sells soil-free plants exclusively because they are easier to maintain and nearly impossible to kill,” Berk said. “Anyone from an experienced gardener to a plant novice can easily grow fresh air inside without needing a green thumb.”

Green technology company GreenSpacers’ national Kickstarter campaign is off to a strong start. After two days the Kickstarter site has 45 pledges for $4,324. The GreenSpacers campaign is one of the most supported recently launched efforts and is appearing on the “popular this week” page under the DESIGN category.
Eventually, Berk hopes to expand his residential business into e-commerce, consumer retail, as well as establish production in Florida, which would allow him to convert plants with more ease because of the ideal tropical growing conditions.
