Japanese designers “[ 10¹² ]” understand that there’s more to plants than what happens above the surface. Their Terra Hydro vases are modeled on terrariums, but they’re designed with the express purpose of allowing plants to show off their roots. We like to think of it as artful hydroponics.


Above: No soil required, these vases are designed for plants whose roots will grow directly in water.


Above: The Terra Hydro comes in five different sizes to accommodate a whole collection of specimens.
