Turning Gardening On Its Head

Defying gravity, this unique upside-down planter encourages abundant greenery at home and at work, without sacrificing floor space. The Sky Planter, with its innovative design, allows you to:

Save space

Look up in any home, office or other indoor environment and the least used space will inevitably be the ceiling. What better place to grow an indoor garden without interrupting your day-to-day living.

Conserve water

Potted plants commonly lose water through evaporation and drainage. The Boskke Sky Planter’s unique reservoir feeds water gradually to the plant’s roots. Because there is no excess water to drain away, they can be used indoors, without losing water to evaporation.

Purify your air

Plants emit oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide and noxious chemicals. This purifies the air around us and increases well being, concentration and rest.

Improve your health

Plants have been proven to positively affect people’s physical and mental health. In the workplace, plants increase alertness and productivity and alleviate stress while studies show that most people prefer plants in their home.

You can get one tomorrow from iKhaya at I Heart Market or on the Bosske Website
