Cat safe planter

Materials: Rationell Variera, Kardemumma, wire, plants

Description: Why only use your Rationell Variera for plastic bags in the kitchen? I hang it on my wall in the living room. Now my cats can’t reach the plants in it. I also put one of my speakers it.

For the upper plant I made a sort of a rack out of wire so it don’t flatten the one below.

The pots for the plants I’ve used are the smallest Kardemumma, they exactly fits.

    Do not ever keep real Calla Lilly’s in your home, as they are extremely poisonous to cats. Even if they are high up when the plant sheds leaves, flowers or even pollen and it gets ingested by you cat it will cause acute kidney failure very quickly.

    Way to think outta the bag!

    The displayed item is really attractive and the holes in the vase will definitely allow the plants hang outside.

    First there were real plants in it, but they dyed. So it will work with real plants (if you water them)
