zippot / plants pot


Small potted plants grow up quickly. Plants bigger than the narrow pot is too stuffy. And roots can't stretch more. This plant anticipates having more space to stretch roots in a flowerpot. And this ‘Zippot’ will grant the wishes of the plant to extend pot by opening zipper.
There are some advantages of this pot. First, as it is made of cloth, the weight is light, and it won't be broken even though you drop it. And you can move the pot easily as well. Second, if you want to remove the pot when the plants die or winter is coming, you can fold it with the zipper. When you fold the pot, its size becomes smaller and you can make room to keep it.
