flowers and plants are flipping their horizon …

Have you seen the  Sky Planter, designed by Patrick Morris…They are quite popular on the web right now The idea is so cool and original : growing plants upside down inside your home or office. And the concept is very original too , using a ground breaking internal reservoir system to feed water directly to the roots. Which means  no water evaporates or drips. Of course the soil is blocked into the “pot”.

The Sky Planter is made of ceramic . for the anecdote, the son of a New Zealand ceramics family, Morris chose his company name, Boskke, to invoke the word bosky, meaning a fledgling forest.

this “perle” is available @ Rockett St. George. It’s available in  different sizes, from £19.50 to  £59…

Just admire those gorgeous and stunning photo from Boskke site :

there is an installation at a museum near where I grew up, called mass moca. outside of the museum (which is housed in old mill buildings) there are about 5 trees installed upside down above the ground hanging, just like these planters. The trees have been there for about 15-ish years now, the funny thing is the branches are trying to grow up even though they hang down, it's kind of awesome!

Back in the 1980's, when we first visit Epcot Center (Disney World, Orlando,Florida), they featured all this crazy futuristic stuff and this type of planting/irrigation was part of it. I thought it was incredible then, but now I think it's more conversational.

How cool! Seems like it's particularly well-suited to orchids. I've always had a hard time growing them here in CO because the air is so extremely dry. The enclosed pot might help.

I've heard of upside down trees in Alaska. And everybody seems to be growing the upside down tomato plants. Never heard of the upside down plants though. Nice!
