The story behind the HydroArtPod — healthy, delicious, chemical-free food. Save big on your groceries. Easier than making coffee.

When people hear the word entrepreneur, they often think of someone daring and innovative, constantly taking risks and moving forward. We hardly talk about the ones who start small, with a little more than a dream and a lot of heart. 

This is the story of one such entrepreneur, Aline Pate. A story that will inspire anyone looking to start their own business or make a difference in the lives of everyone around them. Here is a story about how Aline began working on her invention, while navigating motherhood and being a wife.

When I created HydroArtPod, I was frustrated with the quality of the plastic-wrapped food from the supermarket and often worried about how safe it is.”

This means that we have to find a way to increase food production by 110% from today’s level to meet the high demand for food as we currently know it.

No green thumb

As a mother of two, a wife, and a successful entrepreneur from Germany, Aline wanted a way to guarantee that the food her family consumes is fresh and chemical-free. So even though she had zero experience with gardening, she decided to grow her organic greens in her backyard.

 

There is just something about the freshness of organic produce that just can’t be beaten. Nothing tastes better than something you’ve grown yourself. But starting a garden can seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? How much space do you need? How do you know which seeds are right, for what season? There’s just a lot to consider.

With Aline, every time she thought she was getting results, her tiny sprouts of green would have bugs eating holes in them. Sometimes, the growing process would take so long that she had to stop due to the unfavorable conditions of the seriously hot summer. She was clearly not getting the results she wanted.

Kicking off the Sustainable journey

Aline did not give up despite her busy life as a mother of two. She certainly had no time to manage a garden or deal with the challenges that came with it. So if she was going to make her wish of growing fresh, organic greens herself come true, the process had to be somewhat automated and require less time and effort than a regular garden. 

Aline wanted to build something beautiful enough to put inside her home and not have an ugly garden that takes up space.

She started researching sustainable living and ways to grow food indoors and learned about hydroponics — growing plants without soil, using only water and nutrients.

So in the past four years, after extensive research and testing out different materials and plants, she finally has a working, living indoor garden. All this hard work and dedication birthed an easy-to-use, very efficient, Smart, and elegant indoor garden system, a first of its kind.

I get my  inspiration from things that annoy me. There are just so many things out there where I think they could be made more convenient.

The indoor gardening idea was one of them.

I still remember the day where I read in the news that a lot of fruit and vegetables that were imported by the country were now banned because they detected too high pesticides and harmful chemicals.

A Moment of Realization

That’s crazy I thought and started to read up about it and various news outlets had interesting research on the topic.

Did you know that nowadays our store-bought fresh produce can have up to 32 toxic active ingredients sprayed onto them while 40 years ago the average was “just” 5? While this chemical cocktail keeps veggies look fresh for longer it comes at the risk of stroke, heart attack and even cancer. I did not want to expose my family to that!

From that point on I tried to source organic produce, but it came at such a high cost that I felt I am being robbed for a pack of tomatoes which on top of all was packed in plastic.

I mean seriously, if I buy organic, I do not want to feel guilty about the packaging, right? Anyways…. I tried growing at home but the bugs would eat my spinach in the garden so this didn’t go far. Additionally I really do not have a green thumb, I can kill weeds within a matter of days.

Yes weeds, believe it or not!

To sum up, this outdoor gardening didn’t really work out.

If A Job’s Worth Doing……….

Sometimes you’ve just got to build it yourself…..

I decided to buy a cheap pipe set hydroponics kit from abroad. It worked kind of well. I mean it’s really bulky and not nice to have in my living room, but it kind of did the job. It was only when the plant roots grew too much and the water would flow outside the unit, when I realized that there must be a better solution.

As I couldn’t find one on the market, I built one myself. Took a while to get it right. It’s actually a lot more complicated than it looked at first as I wanted it to be pretty.

It took me 3 years to create the version I have in my home now and I am pretty proud of it. It looks just like I had hoped and does grow just like I wanted. Mission accomplished.

The feedback I received from friends was overwhelming and I started to think that there might be more people keen to grow at home and there it was: the idea to build more indoor gardens so that everyone who would like one could have one.

I am passionate to help everyone to grow at home, whether in a back yard or indoors. If you like my idea it would be great if you could spread the word and we could soon become a community of home growers!
