PlantTherapy: Topsy Turvy

Pin it button

Patrick Blanc's vertical plant walls make one realize that plants do not have to grow straight out of a pot, and that there are more possibilities to integrate plants into our urban environment and space-strapped apartments.

I recently came across the Topsy Turvy in my winter avalanche of product catalogs. It is described as 'perfect for apartments and condominiums', challenging plants to grow upside-down and making them easier to care for.I love the simple idea behind this product. And I would LOVE to try growing tomatos or rose bushes in my living room window. But I don't particularly like the appearance of the holder, which is far from invisible. I feel like a cosmetic redesign could make it so much better.

What would you grow in this? And who would you have redesign the holder?

Topsy Turvy has another similar product on their website for multiple plants.
