Things Looking Up for Your Urban Garden
August 25, 2010 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Lacking floor space or just want to add plants to the upper reaches of your living space while at the same time conserving water and purifying the air you breathe? You may want to consider the Boskke Sky Planter.
Since potted plants commonly lose water through evaporation and drainage, the Sky Planter’s reservoir feeds water gradually to the plant’s roots maintaining even irrigation and avoiding over-watering. Because there is no excess water to drain away, they can be used indoors, without losing water to evaporation.
You can breathe well knowing that as plants emit oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide and noxious chemicals, placing them in your living space purifies the air around you.
Though it has nothing to do in particular with this hanging plant system, plants have been proven to positively affect people’s physical and mental health. In the workplace, plants supposedly increase alertness and productivity and alleviate stress, so having a few in your home might be a good way to improve your overall well-being. Who knows? They sure look good.
Hang herbs in your kitchen and be ready to snip right into your meal.
