When designing these propagation stands, I wanted to have the tubes be big enough to take several cuttings, or Snake Plants (Dracaena, formerly Sansevieria) without the leaves being crammed in. And the opening had to big enough so that if they rooted well you didn't have to smash the glass to remove the plant.
My goal was to create something beautiful, minimal and pretty that could slip in to any office or home. I wanted it to be clean and an elevated alternative to jam jars.
It also had to be easy to clean, perfect for a housewarming gift, and easy to refill.
I designed these stands and worked with my friend, Judy of Made In Urbana, a fellow Woman of Color and Small Business Owner to have these manufactured.They're made with PLA which is compostable, and 3D printing allows for much less waste over injection mold. Everything is also made here in the US, which helps to decrease carbon footprints too.
The Plant Propagation Stands are available in two colors, Milk & Oatmeal, and two shapes, Saguaro & Stone.
Each propagation stand includes:
Food safe borosillicate glass (Pyrex™) tubes
Each stand holds ~165ml, approximately 5.5 fl. oz
1 3D PLA Printed Stand
