Upside Down - The Sky Planter

Upside down
Who's to say
What's impossible
And can't be found
Well they forgot
This world keeps spinning
And with each new day
I can feel a change in everything

These words from a song by Jack Johnson came to my mind when I saw these upside down planters at Thorsten Van Elten's website. I have to say I never thought there was a need to plant anything this way. I mean, what's wrong with planting things the way gravity intended it to. Even their own newsletter was in doubt: Cute idea, but WHY was my initial reaction. Indeed.

I'll have to think about it for a couple of days, in the meantime here's a short description from the website: We’ve turned indoor gardening quite literally on its head. The SKY PLANTER allows you for the first time to grow plants upside down inside your home or office. Using a ground breaking internal reservoir system to feed water directly to the roots, means no water evaporates or drips. We also lock in the soil so there’s no mess.
