Sky Planter: turning houseplants on their heads
Andrea Bellamy |

Check out the Boskke Sky Planter. Yep, that’s it, hanging upside down there. Actually, it’s not upside down – it’s designed that way. (Another art school grad project! Thank goodness for design students. Without them, the world would certainly be less bloggable.)

Using an internal reservoir system, the Sky Planter feeds water directly to the roots of the plant, so no water evaporates or drips. The soil is locked in (I wondered, too) so there’s no mess.

There’s a lot I like about the Sky Planter. It uses up to 80% less water than conventional planters. You only need to water once a month. It saves floor space. And it certainly is a talking point.

But wow, that palm (at top) is bizarre looking! I don’t think I could pull it off in my home. And I wonder about the plants: do they thrive? Don’t they try to right themselves? (I’m thinking of that palm again.) What do you think?
