Hanging plants. Why not?

Hang it from the ceiling like a lamp

No, we didn’t turn the picture upside down. These plants are just like that, as strange as this may seem, they hang from the ceiling and grow “down”. They’re called Sky Planter and they’re a Bosske design created by Patrick Morris, an art student specialized in ceramics who created these plants as a final project for a course. Thanks to these hanging plants, Morris won a prestigious design award in the UK and became one of the best potters to have earned a degree in design.

But let’s cut to the chase. How do you water these plants? Why doesn’t the dirt fall out? Will I get soaked if I stand under it? These sorts of doubts will plague anyone looking at pictures of these plants. First of all, we should make it clear that this is not a joke and these are not just decorative plastic plants.

They are real plants that grow happily when they’re cared for properly. Everything has been planned out: the dirt won’t fall out and you won’t get wet or have to use some crazy watering can.

The plants are watered through a reservoir on the top of the planter that brings water directly to the the roots so there is no water lost to evaporation and you avoid problems with the substrate. They only need to be watered once a month, so you’ll use 80% less water than with other plants. The planter is ceramic and is covered with a lid that won’t let a single drop out, so you will not get wet.

Where should I put it? On any ceiling in your home. It doesn’t take up space and it’s the perfect solution for tiny apartments with no balcony. They also look great in a study or office. You’re clients will stare at them in fascination.

See Nature from a different point of view.
