    I love this idea, but what, pray tell, is a caddy holder? Thanks.

    try using planters that don’t have holes in the bottom! If you use the right amount of water, the plants will be nourished and you won’t have to worry about overflow

    We did this hack this weekend. Had to use a different shower rod, as the window is narrow, but it looks amazing! Genius idea!

    This is such a great idea especially when you don’t have much space to put the plants at.

    Love it!! I will totally visit IKEA in the next weeks to do the same like you :) I was looking for something like that since ever, because we cant open our windows and the kitchen is already full with so much stuff, so using the window space is perfect! :) THANKS!!

    Aha! I’ve been pondering how to set something up that would be out of the cat’s reach and also allow us to open and close the window. Perfect!
