Pop Plant – one of five Concrete Air Plant Holders
Five lucky entrants will receive the latest offering from our pals at Pop Plant – adjustable Concrete Air Plant Holders! In 2012, Andy (Maxi) Walker and Gabriela Holland found themselves living in a small inner-city apartment. Craving some greenery in their lives, they slowly began to fill their home with indoor plants, and it didn’t take long before they became incurable plantaholics (we can relate). Pop Plant’s unique products experiment with common materials like concrete, ply and polyfelt (made from recycled plastic) to create their own range of pots and planters.
RRP $36 ea. Available to Vic, NSW and Qld entrants only. See full terms & conditions here.
