Good To Grow

The perfect low-maintenance planter for those green -challenged "brown thumbs," these delicate handmade, ceramic pods are designed to help "air plants" (tilandsia) thrive. The unglazed, Moroccan brown planters designed by Michael McDowell can be propped on any countertop or suspended using the included cord. Just tuck a couple of leaves into the pod's small opening, and you're good to grow. Hanging Air Plant PodTM requires no dirt and almost no watering, this indoor greenery option is an ideal for the time-pressed. Handmade in Colorado.

Sold individually.

Air plant (Tillandsia) not included.

Comments about HANGING AIR PLANT POD:

I blame myself for not researching this purchase. As others stated, it is small, and way overpriced. Plus, you need to rinse it 2-3 times a week. The plant almost looks fake, and I only hope over time I am more pleased with the way it grows and looks on the patio--right now I am skeptical about it even staying alive.

Comments about HANGING AIR PLANT POD:

This is a very beautifully made piece, but is very small. I wish I could have afforded to buy about 5 of them to fill the space I had in mind but at [$] that wasn't really an option. I also wish the plant had come with it or been available to order so that I didn't have to make another stop to get it. By the way, it wasn't easy to find. I love that this can be hung because our cats and dog knock everything over. In all, its nice, well done, but a little on the pricy side.

Disappointed

Comments about HANGING AIR PLANT POD:

I should have read the reviews. It is SO TINY, like a little bigger then an egg tiny. And it didn't come with a plant!

This is not the super cool looking gift I thought it was going to be. Over priced for what it is and really a disappointment.

Comments about HANGING AIR PLANT POD:

These are so fantastic! I have a set of 3 in my guest room that I hung at different heights. I like to interchange them with air plants that I buy locally. I constantly get compliments on them!

Small, Unremarkable planter

By 

from Northern Michigan

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Good idea
  • Nice design

Cons

  • Dried mud color
  • Too small for my plant

Best Uses

    Comments about HANGING AIR PLANT POD:

    I can't use it for my air plant: too small
    It's a great idea, but very undramatic. Too much money for a small vase, a tiny airplant to go in it, and a no-impact result.
