Natural Habitats: Gina’s Green Thumb

“My @refresh_glass plants are happy and doing great at my new home! #reuse #recycle #refreshglass #plants #greenthumb #shabbychic #winelove #winebottles #creative #localphx #houseplants #bamboo #tropicalplants #happyplants #selfsustaining #green #iwontkillthembecausetheywaterthemselves” – @phx_gal & @refresh_glass

My favorite hashtag in Gina’s list would have to be the last one: #iwontkillthembecausetheywaterthemselves (for legibility’s sake: “I won’t kill them because they water themselves).

These’re Wine Bottle Planters by Practical Art artisan Ray DelMuro of Refresh Glass, and Gina’s right on the money: the top half of the bottle is flipped into the lower so that a string can wick water up from the reservoir and into the dirt– when the dirt needs it! Brown thumb? Voila! Green thumb. And these look fantastic clustered like this! Thanks for sharing, Gina!
