Stainless Steel Planters

Continuing with the theme of plants, I present some more flickr finds today.

These stainless steel planters look stylish, modern, and most importantly are resistant to varying weather conditions.

Though they are more ideal for a commercial setting, a miniature version of these as outdoor planters has the potential to add to the glam quotient of a house.

If you are thinking of recycling your stainless utensils, then wait a minute! Most stainless steel planters such as these are treated with a special layer inside made of fiber or plastic to make them acid-resistant. In Indian weather conditions, planting in stainless utensils can be harmful to the plants as steel tends to get warm too soon.

I would like to experiment with a small old balti indoors (preferably in the balcony) in a corner that doesn’t get too hot. The balti would need a small hole to drain excess water. And maybe a little acrylic work on the outside would make it a stylish planter.
