Jade in Kokedama... a perfect gift than flowers..

Yesterday I was in super market with my friend to pick some flowers to my another friend (for their house warming ceremony). As I was picking flowers my friend just looked at me and said, why do you want to give these cut flowers where as you can pick these plant which will be forever.. I looked at him and I just picked some Jade plant and Made these two beautiful kokedama out of it.

I made one as tabletop for their living rom and another as string garden new their porch.. They loved it totally. This happened 6 months back and still the plant is doing well..

Then I realized, if you can gift your friends a plant you are not only giving a plant but you are encouraging having green in their small space.

Between Jade is considered as Money plant in Fengshui, If you go to any Chinese store you can see them near the entry way.

Waste bottles???

One weekend I was free, so I headed straight to the near by nursery Varitey Growers, By seeing their collection I couldn't stop buying most variety or plants and herbs. When I came back I realise I dont have much container... Darnnn I cant go back again and spend money on containers, I looked around and this what i found TaDa

I gather all the materials and tools to get started.

Ready to get sprayed
Yeah, I am ready, bring it on!!!

Nailed it completely in to the wall

The second one goes next, I am up

At last I am ready, bring the plants in

And with CoKe Bottles, I made two set (yes I am addicted to Coke Zero). One for indoor and another for outdoor herb garden>>

All set to dry

I am the indoor one..

My inverted coke vertical herb garden

Now The final showdown of Indoor>>

So If you are lazy and dont want to spend money on those expensive container in the store then get start  and be creative, make use of every thing around and every inch of space for gardening

Hope you like it

Glass Garden - Terrarium

Hmmm this is something new i tried after kokedama. (Yes i went to Sprout Home to learn this one, you can say the young ladies are experts there) 
Easy to do but designing, materials and the plant to chose is more important. I tried with succulents and some tropical plants though.

My first terrariums @ sprout home

Later My experiment

This one is a minature, did in a wine glass
