Cool Idea: I.V. Self-Watering Plant Pot

I once showed you how to make a self-watering planter from a recycled soda bottle, and while the DIY was pretty easy and inventive, I will admit it wasn't the most handsome pot I've ever seen. I'm not someone who thinks we should need to make sacrifices when it comes to good design, so I kept my eyes peeled and was silently hoping for a sexier alternative. Then came the Vitamin I.V. Self-Watering Planter ($375), an ingenious pot that comes with a refillable I.V. bag that regulates the flow of water to your plant with its drip feed. The lightweight fiberglass pot has a sleek, modern conical shape that's a far cry from the do-it-yourself look of that surgeried soda bottle. Unfortunately, I.V. is quite large (as is its price) at 12.5 x 21.25 inches, and is really meant to hold a tree, so now I'm not-so-silently hoping Vitamin will release a mini version for more petite plants.

Now that I look closer, it wouldn't be too hard to "borrow" items from my job to make myself...:sneaky-evil:

I think the IV bag is really cute, but I don't particularly like the pot itself...

Oh my gosh. This is soooo great! I am officially joining your not-so-silent plea that they make this in smaller sizes for smaller budgets. My desk craves an IV plant.

I normally like really different things... but this says to me "I'm sick and in the hospital, I might die". Actually, most of my plants end up dying anyways so this might not be too far off the mark for me ;-)

I also hope they release a mini-version that is less-expensive. I love this planter! Thanks for posting :)
