Upside-Down Planters Let You Grow Flowers In Tiny SpacesS

Plants are wonderful. They brighten up a your sleepy apartment and purify the stale air inside your hermetically sealed compound. But if you have small place, they're just about the last thing you want because they take up so much room, and there isn't exactly a convenient spot for a garden inside a 300 square-foot studio.

However, Boskke's playful upside-down Sky Planter works in an apartment or home of any size. Pop a fern or an orchid, or whatever you chose into the container, hang it from your ceiling, and you'll have your own urban garden. The pretty planters start at $18 and come in a variety of styles.

It's a nice solution for those of us who have attempted to nurture flowers on the fire escape, only to forget they're out there and need to be watered nearly every day. [Boskke]
