You've inspired me to view EVERY container as a potential sub-irrigating planter! I just made a lovely one out of a large white plastic scoopable kitty-litter container. It now holds my precious mandrake seedling on the back porch, and it's absolutely wonderful. Over the past few weeks, I've also gotten very good at making sub-irrigating planters from Ocean Spray rectangular juice bottles (I like the heavier plastic better than the pop-bottle material). My taro and pitcher plants are doing beautifully in these. Thanks for showing me a whole new world of growing!


Found your photos on Flickr and want to read more about making these "sci-fi" planters :) Very cool indeed and it's ingenious!
