Design/ Gardening: “Would you like to come up for some coffee?” – A Carafe, Repurposed May 24, 2013


Oh the age-old, always-working allure of coffee! That is why when I repurposed a old coffee carafe into a planter for decorative grass, I purposely placed it on top of the stairs that bring you to our living room.
I love the transparent carafe where you can see the soil. The tall grass blades add a really sharp and interesting feature. The little succulents at it’s base are thousand-babies (?)
I chose plants that can do without a lot of water. Since there’s no way to make holes in this carafe, I don’t want to overwater the soil. I just moisten them near the roots in 2-3 days and that seems to be enough for these little ones.
