The original Bios Incube® is not currently available. We now offer the much more economical Bios Incube® Lite. It does not include the sensor and therefore any of the technological aspects, nor does it water autonomously, however it enables you to plant your Bios Urn® close to you, whether that be in your home, on your terrace or in your garden.

Since launching to the public last month, the Bios Incube has been featured in several wonderful publications which we wanted to share with you. Some of these publications are notable and related to design, innovation, technology, and eco-friendly living. The Bios Incube is the first system of its kind in the world, and has been designed to bring this unique planting experience home, with you in mind.
