Mechanical aeration for container gardens boosting plant vigor by delivering the same oxygen volume that occurs naturally in gardens.

Tell us about your business.

I started in 2006 with a small space garden, hand-made prototypes, support from family & friends and lots of spunk. Test after test resulted in a simple mechanical aeration technology replacing the old solutions of broken pieces of pottery, rocks or packing materials..and potting soils. My products are the first scalable mobile-technology in home gardening to offer optimized control over plant micro-environments that affect Human Life-Quality—naturally ripened, fresh, wholesome, and best tasting produce encourages people to live healthier. And environmental Sustainability—AGulent innovations shelter dwindling natural resources through more efficient use of land, water, and energy.

What makes your business stand out?

For over 4,000 years, container plants have struggled to get oxygen to their roots. The Aerator O2 solves that age-old problem. Grassroots demand has encouraged me to introduce products to grow healthy vegetables in small space gardens, beautiful flowers on small decks and fragrant herbs for the home chef. Container Gardening enjoys Worldwide appeal. 50% of all gardens include containers, resulting in a solution for an existing market and an existing problem.

What's the best business advice you've received?

Never lose my imagination.
