Herbs to grow in your Okidome suction planter
If you haven't heard of Okidome, it's the first plant pot to use the Oki-Lock Suction System, an ingenious patented system that allows for easy and secure attachment to windows, smooth tiles even fridges. We've never seen a suction pad like it! It attaches to the window with a screw device that sucks the air out of the pad and keeps it secure to the surface. It can hold up to 5 kilos in weight!
The Okidome allows you to grow plants wherever they will get the best light in your gaff, which is just brilliant for herbs in the kitchen. Here's the herbs that work best for us:
Of course basil, an absolute staple in any kitchen. It's easy to grow and it thrives in the sun, so make sure you place your planter in a sunny window.
