fabric pots

These Hova Fabric Pots look great. Words from Hova Design: “The FabricPot is the first container made of waterproof breathable fabric. Its patent-pending design wraps the soil in fabric, allowing air and water vapor to circulate for proper aeration while keeping liquid water from leaking out. Unlike clay pots, FabricPots are lightweight, sturdy, easy to clean and won’t crack. Our current line features fabric patterns by Angela Adams woven in 100% post industrial recycled material.”

They have two types, the Silo pots are cylindrical while the Frusto pots are conical and narrower at the top and include a zipper to make repotting easier. More details here, and they are a small company so you can feel happy about buying some.

Perhaps these pots can work miracles and help me keep houseplants alive.

    Psst. I’ve had trouble keeping houseplants alive since we moved last year; our new place is a bit dim.

    This summer, I noticed that everything does fine when it’s rooting in water. It’s only the plants in soil that falter.

    So I’ve started a mass of clippings in glass bottles, letting them take root and flourish without the soil. So far, it’s been a mad success. Maybe that would work for you, too.
