I had a chance to construct my second Sky Planter over the weekend, with an orchid I received from Chris for Valentine’s Day (thanks!). I think it is even more effective than the first and is hanging in our bathroom, allowing us to wallow in the bath and look up at the flowers – excellent!
I first saw these Sky Planters by Boskke a few years back and have lusted after them ever since. The design is contemporary but striking and the concept is so simple its a wonder no one thought of it sooner. The kit consists of three parts – a pot with a wire on the bottom of it (to be hung off a hook), a ceramic reservoir to control the release of water to the plant and a ‘lid’ which clips into the top of the pot, keeping the plant from falling out.
Luckily, I have a boyfriend who knows what I like and I got some Sky Planters for my birthday last week. The first one is assembled and hanging from a hook in our bedroom.
