1. Rainy Pot

Do interior plants dream about raindrops? That’s what Korean designer Jeong Seungbin from DailyLife Lab thought, as it’s the nature’s intended way for plants to receive their water dose, so he created this supercute Rainy Pot. This clever and nice planter consists of a little pot and a cloud above it, which works as watering system.

You just need to open the lid on top of the cloud and pour about 80 ml. of fresh water for your plant, and after that you can enjoy seeing the “rain” falling in your now probably happier flowers. Also, the pot has a little plug on the bottom that you can pull to let go overflowing water. Simple and functional!

Plants and Coffee: Terrarium in Coffee Pot

Called “Charming Project”, blogger Enid shared this creative project, which turns a coffee pot into a beautiful terrarium for air plants. Inspired by her childhood memory, Enid designed this creative terrarium as a tribute to her grandmother. “When I think plants and coffee, I’m instantly reminded of my grandmother,” the artist says. “She was one classy lady, and she loved her houseplants and roses almost as much as her afternoon coffee.” Why an air plant terrarium, you ask? Enid said, “Well, because it’s about as difficult to kill as devil’s vine but without having it grow all over the place.”

If you are interested to have one of your own coffee pot terrarium, head over to Enid’s blog for detailed instruction.
