About us

Hello and welcome!

Hi! I'm Jess, one of the co-creators of Vertigrow. That's me holding the coffee, and the handsome chap next to me is Brett, my finance and co-creator. We're super excited to have you here, and we hope you love our products as much as we do.

The epic origin story

Vertigrow sprouted in the depths of COVID lockdowns in 2020. To quell the boredom, Brett decided to buy a 3D printer and learn CAD, and, sick of seeing the same walls every day, I decided to spruce up the place with plants.

These seemingly disparate pursuits collided when I found conventional plastic trellises lacking for my cherished plant babies. Armed with a mere seedling of an idea, I went to Brett asking if we could make a trellis that "I can make bigger whenever I want" and "oh, hexagons would be cool."

After a lot of trial and error, tinkering with sizes, connection types, different shapes etc., we landed on the design and printed a working prototype. There it remained, quietly supportive of my Satin Pothos, until a passing remark ignited the notion of sharing our creation with the world.

Cue the montage – nights and weekends dedicated to perfecting the design, collaborating with local Australian manufacturers for injection moulding, crafting packaging aesthetics, and navigating the labyrinth of patents and trademarks. To use a well-worn phrase - it's been a journey!

Now, 18 months later, Vertigrow stands tall. Our website blooms with life, our products grace local shelves, and our ambitions extend to a flourishing line of pots and accessories.

From humble beginnings to budding success, our journey continues to blossom.
