If you haven’t noticed, indoor plants are having a real ~moment~.
Every cool blogger doing a house tour has cacti lining their shelves, a money plant in their bathrooms, and giant leaves poking out of pots in every corner. Every fashion brand needs to show off some plants in the background of their product shot.
But, alas, we are all lazy beings incapable of remembering to water plants as frequently as they need.
We’re also a bit rubbish at not knocking over pots littered across our shelves.
So naturally, the idea of a self-watering mini garden you can stick on your wall is pretty blimmin’ appealing.
Etsy-er Matt Rabinovitch has created two different models of vertical gardens, each made of wood and filled with ferns for a lush look: one is eight feet long, and one is seven feet tall. So you can choose depending on the space you need to fill.
Oh, and they’re also self-watering.
As long as you remember to fill the water supply once a week, the mini gardens will water themselves three times each week – exactly as often as the ferns require.
We’d recommend setting a weekly ‘refill the water thing’ alarm so you don’t forget.
They look great, they’re easier to take care of than multiple succulents scattered around your house, and they make great Instagram backdrops (just think of how great a cup of coffee will look held up against a mini jungle).
There’s only one downside, and that’s the price. Each of the gardens costs around £1,000. A pretty hefty price to pay unless you’re a plant-loving baller.
Anyone fancy lending us some cash?
Guess we’ll just have to keep plodding along, replacing our dying plants every few months after telling ourselves off, yet again, for forgetting that plants need water to survive. Ugh.
