...What does organic mean in this context? I see that alot, but can never figure what is supposed to be "organic."

The user interface is designed using Plasma Quick, a declarative markup language allowing for organic user interface design based on Qt Quick.

As I understand, "organic" as "constitutional in the structure of something". Parts, with an structure, related to others, with norms, that form a defined "organism" as a whole. [http://ardictionary.com/Organic/2198].

It means it can be adjusted to suit the environment, possibly through trial and error.
