Lyfe Levitating Planter

When NASA says they want to cultivate plants in zero gravity this isn’t what they mean, but the Lyfe Levitating Planter is still plenty interesting and unique. Its twelve-sided geodesic planter is molded out of silicon, making it extremely durable, leak-proof, and non-absorbent, with a hidden inner reservoir that mitigates against over-watering and that sits above a custom shaped magnet. The planter itself floats above a block of quartersawn sustainably sourced oak with an electromagnet within that pushes up against the magnet in the planter, enabling levitation and a slow rotation, the latter which has the benefit of exposing all sides of the plant’s leaves to incoming sunlight for an overall more nurturing environment. Each kit also includes an air plant which grows without the need for absorbing nutrients from soil, instead deriving them from the air around.
