"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now." - Chinese proverb
The Avocado Vase ,designed by London-based Ilex Studio, is a pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality. It allows you to observe the avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants' first stages of life.
A refined alternative to the traditional method of growing avocados with toothpicks, the vase mouth cradles the seed, keeping it dry as it sprouts and encouraging the roots to flourish freely. The sinuously shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper; creating a perfect focal point to witness the plant as it develops.
A perfect vase for forcing narcissus and hyacinth bulbs in the winter.
Includes a 36-page handbook, which thoughtfully provides detailed steps for germinating the seed and growing the avocado plant. Ideal for plant lovers, design enthusiasts, inquisitive children and everyone who wishes to experience the joy of nature and a unique connection to our environment.
The vase is available in Clear, Smoke Grey, and Grass Green.
