Michael McDowell's Hanging Air Plant Pods will have you adorning your ceiling with plants that look like crazy tentacled octopuses.

Michael McDowell had created these hanging pots when he discovered his Tillandsia plant wouldn't flourish in standing water. These plants are specifically made for air plants, so don't expect this work with your flowers (unless you're looking to shower your room with petals).
