Gardenista Gift Guide: For the House Plant Horticulturalist

Michelle Slatalla November 08, 2012

Note to my family (and anyone else who wants to buy a holiday gift for an indoor gardener): The theme this year is splurge. Allow me to clarify.

This does not mean you need to spend millions. “Splurge” is simply a gift that’s best in class and designed to last for years–a shiny plant mister that feels satisfyingly solid, a miniature terrarium beautifully crafted to catch the light, or thoughtfully designed accessories that make it a pleasure to care for even the most oversized or finicky house plants. For instance:

Above: From Score & Solder, a 5-inch-square Small Cube Planter, handmade of glass and lead-free solder, balances gracefully on one point. It cradles its content–quartz crystal, rocks, sand, and activated charcoal are included–as reverently as if it were displaying Elizabeth Taylor’s 33-carat diamond ring. It’s $110 from Totokaelo.

Above: Other, larger glass planters are also available from Totokaelo, at prices ranging up to $364, for the Quartz No. 1 Terrarium (R), which is 13 inches high.

Above: For humidity-loving plants such as orchids and tillandsias, a Nickel Plant Mister from Terrain is $24.

Above: A practical gift, the Aluminum Potted Plant Roller on wheels has a twin ball-bearing system and the ability to lock the wheels in place. Manufactured in Germany, it is 62 € from Manufactum.

Above: Above: An AGUO Watering Can is $80.99 to $110.69 depending on size from Lumens.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.
