I.V. Drip Feed Pot Plant

Are these the cutest pot plant containers, ever?

If you’re someone who struggles to keep plants alive in their pots then utilizing the wonders of modern medicine may be a good option. Each plant is sustained by its own water and nutrient source that is very visible – as an intravenous feed. If the drip feed runs out, it’s time to refill.

While it might be the cutest thing you’ve ever seen, at £159.50 from the Vitamin store, you’re not likely to keep one for anything other than its novelty value.
