This smart cabinet gives you the self-contained vegetable garden you’ve always dreamed of


The people who bought you the NANO Garden are offering you something much more complete and expandable. Meet MULTO, a vertical kitchen truss that takes up the same space as a regular shelf. With multiple tiers that can grow up to 60 plants together, MULTO lets you create a farm-to-table setup right in your home! The self-contained garden has its own smart light that mimics the sun and even waters the plants within. Worried about getting your hands dirty? Well, MULTO uses the same “garden pod” system as its little brother, NANO. Just plug in the pod and you’re ready to grow! This gardening capsule contains seeds suspended in a growing medium, and it floats on a bed of water and nutrients, absorbing as much as it needs to keep your plant hydrated and healthy.

Before I point out that self-watering planters or smart planters aren’t particularly new, it’s worth noting that the MULTO is more than just a planter – it’s an entire garden. MUTLO’s tiered system comes with a modular design that can grow multiple plants at once, turning your home into a miniature orchard. Created in collaboration with multi-award-winning industrial designer Xavier Houy (who has a Red Dot Design Award and a Platinum A’ Design Award to his name, among others), MULTO is the result of over 6 years of research and development, spent towards what Prêt à Pousser calls the ultimate vertical vegetable garden, capable of growing everything from microgreens to root vegetables. MULTO achieves this by offering a variety of trays, including a standard tray for your pods, a denser tray that serves as a nursery, a microgreens tray and a new root vegetable tray for growing turnips, potatoes bells, shallots and other underground vegetables.

However, Prêt à Pousser’s most significant achievement with the MULTO is its new hydroponic technology. Referred to as their “Ebb & Flow” system, MULTO’s water tank comes with a discreet pump that periodically pumps water to the roots and then drains it away – like an ocean tide. Working like a hydroponic gardening system (but designed to be better), this keeps nutrients flowing and allows plant roots to absorb more oxygen, creating a higher yield. How much better? Well, Prêt à Pousser founder Romain Behaghel claims that MULTO’s Ebb & Flow increases your plant’s yield by 200%, giving you twice as many fruits, vegetables or leafy greens.

Multo will fit in any home.

Multo One Level: 15 to 20 plants (to put on the ground)

Comptoir Multo: 15 to 20 plants (to put on a buffet or a kitchen counter)

Multo Three Levels: from 45 to 60 plants (to be placed on the ground)

Assembling your MULTO is about as easy as using it. The vegetable garden is divided into tiers and you can simply expand your produce by plugging in a new tier on top to create your own vertical farm. Each MULTO comes with a smart light that can be automated to mimic the pattern of the sun, and can additionally be controlled by a smartphone app. This new light, the MULTO team mentions, is 8 times more efficient and powerful than other indoor garden lights, helping to create that output the company boasts of.

While the light sits above the planting tray, MULTO’s water tank rests below. All you really need to do is fill it with water and add a sachet of the liquid nutrient supplied with your MULTO and your vegetable garden is now ready. MULTO’s companion app creates a bridge between your garden and you, the gardener, giving you regular updates on your plants, helping to track water and nutrient levels, and also providing you with maintenance advice plants to help you maximize your yield.

Prêt à Pousser launched its MULTO prototype at CES 2022 this year, showcasing over 6 years of work on the product (and its results too). MULTO is currently available on Kickstarter, starting at €249 ($259) for a single tier designed to sit on countertops, with the option to purchase modular tiers depending on the amount of vertical space available in your home. Each MULTO includes the smart light, Ebb & Flow hydroponics system, two bottles of liquid nutrient, 4 pod trays and 16 garden pods of your choice. What’s not included in the box, however, is the joy you’ll feel when you see your own vegetable patch blossom after just a few weeks of assembling your MULTO.
