As anyone who grows plants in an apartment will tell you, it can be quite a challenge. Space is limited, as is light and it’s so easy to make a mess – this is why I love this new project. It’s really easy to set up a small, cute garden in only minutes.

It’s called Livi. Designer  Hooman Koliji came up with this idea which allows you to use micro-suction “palms” that grip onto various surfaces in just seconds without screws, nails, or glue. According to the IndieGoGo page, they can still on walls, glass, wood and even your computer.


“Livi does not require any assembly and is ready to attach to a window (or other surface) in your home or office with a gentle push. Inspired by nature, Livi’s micro-suction palms are made of an innovative nanotechnology material that is able to bond with smooth surfaces repeatedly, including windows!”

Of course, this is limited for small plants, but that’s pretty much what you want in your apartment anyway. You can either use a small pot and place it inside Livi or place the soil directly inside it.


It’s a small thing, it won’t revolutionise our lives, but it can make a difference in our homes and offices and sometimes, that’s all you need.
