Aerial Ceramic Vases for Indoor Epiphytic House-Plants

Aerial Ceramic Vases for Indoor Epiphytic House-Plants (1)

The project Epiphytes invites to rethink the relationship with indoor nature in terms of a cohabitation more respectful and attentive to the needs of the plant. It, although domesticated, can be free to express itself in its natural bearing.

Epiphytes is a collection of suspended vases in white ceramic, offering an alternative to the potted cultivation of epiphytic house-plants, leaving on sight not only the plant aerial part but also its rootage. With this system, in fact, the plant roots are not contained in the vase, but they envelop it as they would do with a tree branch in the forest. It is possible in this way to observe in full the plant and to admire entirely its growth.

Thanks to the alternation of porous and glazed areas, filing the vase regularly with water will be enough to provide the hosted plant with humidity and water for several days.

In a tropical forests on a single tree is possible to find hundred of different epiphytic plants. In the same way, sustaining several plants with similar light and watering needs, a single vase could give life to a little ecosystem.

What are Epiphyte plants?
Epiphytes are all those plants that in the wild, instead of rooting in the soil, grow seizing on branches or leaves of other plants and trees.They are not parasite, as they don’t take away nourishment from the hosting plant, only using it as support.
