Low-Maintenance Plant Pots: Green Trend
The benefits of keeping plants in the office environment have been proven time and time again. The reduction in carbon dioxide that plants bring about leads to less drowsiness, stress reduction, inspired creativity and increased overall health. Here we highlight five low maintenance designs that are perfect for time-poor office workers.
The Boskke Cube is a self-watering plant pot that has an in-built reservoir and a ‘Slo-Flo’ internal irrigation system that supplies plants with up to 4 weeks of moisture. Made in clear plastic, the Boskke Cube allows you to witness the mechanics of plant growth.
Made from silicone rubber, the Fold flower pot by Italian designer Emanuele Pizzolorusso can double in capacity to accommodate plants as they grow.
Los Angeles-based designer Joey Roth has designed a lo-tech self watering plant pot made from naturally porous Terracotta and Zisha. The earthenware allows water in the central chamber to seep into the surrounding soil while the plant's need for water regulates this capillary action.
Perfect for hay fever sufferers, the biOrb Air replicates nature's daylight, air movement and humidity, creating the perfect environment for tropical plants.
The Click And Grow Smart Herb Garden is equipped with sensors and software that give plants the right amount of water, oxygen and nutrients at all times. Once the pot is plugged into a wall socket users are only required to fill the water tank once a month.
