Plants in Bondage?

Sky Planter has been classified as an eco-friendly innovation. Conserve water, purify the air, save time, save your plants, but mostly - save floor space.

"Transform your view of nature," says Jess Chamberlain, Sunset's home & design writer.

Thoughts? Have you used an upside down pot? Topsy turvy tomato thingy?

I have heard A LOT of horror stories with the tomato thingy! I would also agreed about the dirt in the hair! Not a good idea. The orchids do look good though!

I torture my tomato in a 5 gallon pot - can not imagine in a topsy thingy. I am such a clutz I would be banging my head all the time. I do that enough while working in the garden outside.

I knew there was a reason we get along so well! Clutzes must stick together!

I've never tried it but it looks really cool. How do you keep everything from falling out though.

Carol, you poke the plant's green top through the tiny hole in the bottom of the pot and then fill in with soil. For the life of me I have no idea how they did the fern. They may have some tiny cuff to put around your plant and the hole in the bottom to keep the soil from falling out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi, thanks so much for stopping by. You are just down the road from where I'm looking for my dream house! Love your town too. I do hope I find that dream house. Have a great Wednesday, Theresa

Those planters are going to turn the gardening industry on its head!

Yes.. bad joke.. but cool planters. It'd be a conversation piece for sure

Good one Vertical Gardener! This looks juvenile compared to your stuff.
