We like plants, we want to be close to nature even you are at home. You can put your plant in pot then place it anywhere you want. But is there a better way? Does plant has to be in regular pots? We have rounded up 11 creative approaches to have your plants. Literately, they can be anywhere, on your bathmat, in your book, on your finger, under your foot…
1. Growing Jewelry [link]

2. Bookworms Go Green [link]
The Live Book is a small planter wearing sheep’s clothing – that is to say a book. It’s a great way to jazz up that old book shelf and lets face it. Most of us rarely read our collection of books more than once. If anything, it becomes a display piece and so why not add a little green to it. The removable vase has a simple drainage system and actually opens up into a real book.
Designed by Michele Bussien, it’s essentially a clear plastic frame you place over a growing tree (here fast growing Willow trees and Russian vines) to train it into a chair shape. Remove the chair and the tree from the rolling planter once the tree has grown and replant it in the garden. We’d love a circle of these chairs planted in a grove of trees.
Take a walk in the grass wherever you are in these flip flops that have real grass growing in the soles! They are supposed to last up to four months with proper care. Have you watered your shoes lately? It’s a promotion from Krispy Kreme donuts.
They say walking on fresh grass increases your blood circulation; I can’t vouch for that! Anyways, it is a reason to get going to the nearest park, remove your expensive Jimmy Choo’s and prance around. The Moss Carpet looks at getting the grass to your feet, and that too in your loo! Made from imputrescible foam called plastazote, the mat includes ball moss, island moss and forest moss. The humidity of the bathroom ensures that the mosses thrive. And that’s why you need to place it there and not anywhere else.
Creative table lamp design that doubles as a plant pot. It is one unlike any other I’ve seen. I hope it doesn’t get too hot or your plants might easily die or even catch fire!
This is a planter and a fishtank. You put your regularly potted plant in this pot on top, and a goldfish on the bottom. What could they provide for eachother, you might ask? Waste! Yes, the fishes turn their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, while the water fed to the plant is filtered as it passes though and becomes clean for the fish. It is a totally natural and lovely system.
The weight of an additional flowerbed is a clever footing for your sunshade.Big rolls allow a quick and easy change of location by canting the stand. This useful flowerpot is available in three different colours (white,lilac and red) and is a footing for all sunshades with a rod diameter between 25 and 56 mm.
Many furniture brands claim to be “green” these days, but this table and stool set designed by Icelandic landscape architect Dagný Bjarnadóttir takes it to a whole ‘nother level. Furnibloom plexiglass furniture cleverly houses plants, spices, vegetables, or flowers for easy cultivation, and is perfect for aspiring gardeners who live in the city.
Dubbed “Planter Wall Tiles,” the wall tiles are finished with recycled materials and create an innovative space to grow your indoor plants and herbs. The green pockets not just enhance the interior of your living, or working for that matter, space but also let residents breath fresh all the while. In addition, you may arrange various types of plants to create different patterns, courtesy of its unique fish-scale shape that interlocks the planters. In case you don’t want to grow, or even reveal your plants to others, the green pockets hiding your plants can be turned into a flat surface as well.
See that? That’s how far JVC’s eco-friendly designers will prostrate themselves in hopes of recycling your paper money into their bank accounts. On display in Tokyo at the Designer’s Week exhibition, the Sound Garden “Kirikabu” speaker combines your choice of potted plants with multi-directional speakers consisting of a woofer, and left- and right-channel stereo speakers powered by an internal amplifier. Just add water and let the electrifying fun begin. The pods can also be joined into hives where guinea pigs and other varmints of doom can breed and ultimately wash away the rain of our despair. See that particular construction after the break.
