ESPRESSO MACHINE NOW POWERS PLANTS

This thing has what plants crave! No, not electrolytes exactly — just water, light, and moisture polling every 30 minutes. We think it’s fitting to take something that once manufactured liquid liveliness for humans and turn it into a smart garden that does the same thing for plants. So let’s just get this out of the way: the espresso machine was abandoned because it was leaking water from a gasket. [The Pla ...
