Control & water tank

The 35 L water tank supplies your plants with water. It can be easily filled through the generous filling opening. The Boum control is located at the top of the tank. It measures water consumption and water level, and controls the pump that supplies the pots with the right amount of water once a day. Thanks to a small solar panel, no special connections are required. Here's how it works.


The Boum plants are specifically tested for the irrigation system and the Boum soil, maximizing gardener success. The herbs and vegetables, perennials, trees and wildflower mixtures are selected so that they grow with as little effort as possible, so that cultivation works even for people without a green thumb. The app provided all the necessary information on caring for and fertilizing the Boum plants. To the plants


The Boum pot is a robust designer planter with integrated, self-regulated irrigation. It is connected to the Boum water tank via a hose using a convenient Quick Connect system. A shimmer valve regulates the water supply. Wicks draw the water from the bottom of the container into the soil. Depending on the water consumption of the plant, the wicks draw more or less water. This means that the flower pot regulates itself, without the hassle of adjusting the amount of water. To the pot


The Boum app is connected to the control via WiFi. This means that the filling level, water consumption and balcony temperature can be viewed from anywhere. The app shows how many days there is enough water in the tank and provides personalized advice for optimal plant growth. To the app

Soil & reed mulch

The Boum plant soil has been specially optimized for the Boum irrigation system. It offers good capillary action and thus draws the water from the wicks upwards. A layer of reed mulch reduces water loss and prevents siltation. When it rains, the pot becomes a rain catcher: the water flows from the earth into the lower part of the pot and is stored there. This avoids standing water in the root area. To Earth

Green what's greenable.

We are a Swiss StartUp 🇨🇭 and spin-off of the University of Bern. We develop an infrastructure independent, autonomous, solar-powered planting system.we combine biology with hardware & software so that plants can be grown anywhere, water & power saving. We develop and expand our system together with the community.

We are looking for people who want to grow plants with our system and give us feedback.With a short quiz you can find out if the Boum Community would be something for you:
