As you know, I'm slowly growing my indoor plant collection. While I'd love to buy more and more, I hesitate to do so because with each new plant comes the need for a new pot, and of course the bigger the plant, the bigger the pot. It all starts to get very expensive, which is why I've started looking for more affordable alternatives. One idea is using a natural woven basket. You may even have one lying around home you hadn't though of using. We got given a lovely big hamper from our building company, and straight away I thought of ways of how I could re-use the basket it came in. While it's currently storing toilet paper in the ensuite, I may try housing a plant in it one day soon!
The use of paper bags is becoming more and more popular for plants. Brands such as UASHMAMA make them in different sizes and a range of colours including black, white, grey, neutral, and even metallics. I have a gold one but I'd love to own more!
