WHAT IS HAPPENING ON THE 3RD & 10TH FLOOR OF IDEAS CARTEL, LOOP STREET?

WITNESS THE BIRTH OF 80 PLANTS, BECAUSE!

In collaboration with IDEAS CARTEL and NAAK BOTANICAL STUDIO, we decided to bring 80 plants to life as part of our exhibition.

The method we chose entails use of a single cup and wick-based system that does not require as regular watering cycles as conventional pot plants do. 

On the day of the first Cartel Gallery exhibition, we planted fresh cuttings in cups filled with clay pallets and wicks.  Our project proved to be successful as most of the cuttings have been developing roots and has been sustaining life.  

Simply inspect the bottom of the cup, see if it still has water, (about 20mm filled from the bottom) and top up if you need to.


As the roots develop and the plants mature, add some nutrients to the water to feed it. In return, treat your eyes with greener interiors and fresh air to fill your lungs.

The cups have been slit to avoid overwatering and allow the overflow to drip onto the plants or in tray below.

The world could do with more plants.  Why not start in our homes, offices and the spaces where we spend most of our time?

Let's celebrate life with light, art and plants!
