I’ve always loved the combination of plants and glass.
Having the light go through the glass and seeing the plants through the glass … I like it. This particular glass decoration comes from IKEA. Don’t thing they sell it any more.
Through the glass you see my new hanging pelargonia which has grown a lot lately and just had its very first flower. It is waiting inside still to come outside. Nights are still too cold for pelargonias outside. But soon…
You can also use the glass decoration to put a plant on top of it (in a glass jar of course). A bit dangerous though. It might all fall… Was only testing the look of it.
I often also use glass in combination with plants by creating groups of glass items near to the plants.
I like the contrasts.
The glass emphasizes the greenery of the plants.
You can also use flowerpots of glass. Common when it comes to orchids, but I’ve never noticed any difference in how the orchids grow and thrive if the flowerpot is of glass and transparent or if it is not. I don’t think the orchids mind one way or the other…
The above is a temporary installation… Used a flowerpot of glass to temporarily place the pineapple when I wait for it to get ripe enough to eat… They say you can cut off the top (or was it the bottom?) and place it in earth and get a new pineapple plant. Have never tested it though. Might do that one day.
The blue round vase here serves as a container for a scented candle in a glass. Placed on the kitchen table near to the plants I find the combination makes a nice contrast to the oxalis.
In all the moving around of plants parts of the above one came off… So I put it in a laboratory glass in the hope of it getting roots so I can plants it together with its siblings. This kind usually sprouts new roots on cuttings easily.
That was the end of the photo session, this months task for the Urban Jungle Bloggers, as I also managed to have one of the window lamps fall from the windowsill and brake the LED lamp inside it. The lamp itself did not break, just the bulb… Fortunately I had an extra bulb to replace it with. Floor full of glass and vacuuming became the next task…
