FAQs

Will it damage my walls?

No. We have run over 500 removal tests of the wall mount on various different surfaces, and are confident that it will not damage your walls. Also, the root system and reservoir are fully sealed off from your wall to ensure no dripping or mould forming.

How often do I need to refill the water reservoir?

About every 3-weeks. However, this will vary depending on plant species, room temperature, and sunlight levels.

How does the watering work?

The Noku Canvas uses a wicking hydroponic system that utilises the phenomenon of capillary action, the same way plant stems and roots draw water from soil. A wick connects the plant pot to a 3-week water reservoir that perfectly waters your plant, eradicating the risk of over/underwatering.

Can you use it outdoors?

We have not tested the Noku Canvas outdoors. However, it is made from UV resistant and waterproof polycarbonate, so could survive in theory outdoors, but we recommend indoor use only.

How does the plant get nutrients?

There will be sufficient nutrients in the compost that your plant comes with (if you are using an existing houseplant) for up to 8-weeks of healthy growth. From then on, you can either fertilize your plant with fresh compost, or add liquid nutrient solution to the water basin to give your plants a healthy boost.

What kind of plants can I grow?

Theoretically, anything. However, the wicking hydroponic system creates a fairly damp soil level which certain plant varieties are not as well customed to (for example, succulents & orchids). More information about this topic will be provided in the packaging guide and our website before shipping in March.

What growth mediums can I use?

We recommend that you use compost or houseplant potting mix with the Noku Canvas. However, it is also possible to use soilless mediums, such as coir or rockwool.

What happens when my plant outgrows the Noku Canvas?

The Noku Pot has been designed to maximise the amount of growth time until repotting is needed. Slots in the side of the pot allow the plant roots to grow out and into the reservoir, preventing root balling and root rot (the main reason to repot). This is one of the main benefits of a hydroponics system. When you want to repot your plant, simply remove the pot from the canvas, and transfer it to a larger pot with soil.

Does the Noku Canvas come in other sizes or colours

For the Kickstarter campaign and the initial months after, the Noku Canvas only comes in one size & colour. However, we have future aspirations to release different sizes and colours that will interface with your existing Noku Canvas, so you can continue building your green wall in new ways.

What surfaces do the adhesive strips work on?

The adhesive strips will stick to most smooth indoor surfaces such as painted walls, tiling, plastic, and smooth wood, but excluding glass. Rough surfaces such as brickwork will not work, however, the screw mounting option will work for any wall type.

Does it come with a plant?

No. The logistics of shipping live plants internationally are too complex for a small business like ours to set up at this early stage. However, we are actively looking for partnerships with plant nurseries so that we can give discounts to our customers in the future (if you're a plant seller, please contact us!).

Do you ship worldwide?

We are happy to ship worldwide. The shipping rate for your country will be indicated at the check-out menu when making a pledge. The shipping fee does not include additional duties and taxes that may apply as per local laws of importation. We will be including a 'Statement on Origin' on the product invoice stating that the product is manufactured in and distributed from the UK. This should allow customs to offer backers reduced or nil rates of duty as per UK trade agreements.
