Hanging Plants in Flora Pockets


I’m so excited about this month’s urban jungle bloggers challenge. For those who recently tuned in, the urban jungle bloggers challenge is a monthly assignment to promote and show how house plants can be used and styled in your interior. Tens of bloggers from around the globe participate in the monthly challenge and you can see all of the bloggers who participate here. This month we were asked to show our hanging plants.

My house plants usually have a life expectancy of 3-4 months, due to lack of light. So I’ve decided to stop buying new plants in winter, and instead grow herbs as you can cut them and use them before they die. In summer I grow herbs on my balcony but as it is too cold in winter, and because I love to cook with fresh herbs, I think I’ve found the sweet spot this way. So tadaa, there they hang in one of the best inventions of last year: Flora pockets.hanging plants - 30s magazinehanging plants - 30s magazine

The Flora pockets are super handy and fun. They are made of waterproof textile. I liked them as soon as I laid eyes on them as they are decorative as well as functional, and match my interior style better than the currently trending macrame hangers. growing herbs at home - 30s magazinegrowing herbs - 30s Magazine

What I love about the Flora pockets is their versatility. Once I have used up all my herbs, or as an in between before I go and buy new herbs, I can use the pockets as hanging vases for flowers. In theory you can add water in the pockets because it won’t leak, but I use a plastic cup and slip it into the pocket so it’s not visible. In my storage shed, I use the pockets to store stuff, like my gardening accessories, seeds, and bulbs.  They are just perfect!IMG_4788IMG_4796The Flora pockets come in all flavours and are suitable for housing plants and flowers, appliances, bathroom accessories, as storage in the kids room,  kitchen…you name it. They are designed by Rot-M, and manufactured in Israel in collaboration with rehabilitation charities. To see more colours, patterns, and other pocket models to hang, and to see more ideas how to use these Flora versatile pockets, visit their website or follow them on instagram.

Although this blog post was created in collaboration with Flora Pockets through a gift, I like to reiterate that I only recommend products and services I really like and feel are good for my readers.
