SPOTLIGHT ON FOUNDATION MEMBER - CUP O FLORA
CUP O FLORA® is an award-winning self-watering glass pot that grows beautiful plants sustainably, with a range of vessels to fit any home or office.
CUP O FLORA’s owner Odi Reuveni has been 'rescuing' plants from friends and nurseries for most of his life, and bringing them back to life. Odi's challenge was to come up with a natural and clean alternative to conventional pots that would make plant care easy.
Odi used his training as a researcher to explore the market and came across a small plastic pot while travelling in Brazil, then spent six months improving the design and quality of the product, which resulted in CUP O FLORA winning the Good Design Australia Awards in 2018.
The pot’s versatility makes it perfect for a variety of foliage plants or adjusted to host succulents and herbs.
Our goal is to let customers with different levels of plant-keeping skills work and live in a green environment. Our clean, self-caring pots allow those with and without a green thumb to keep their plants thriving for longer. The transparent self-watering system lets CUP O FLORA owners see when the plant needs water, with hassle-free top-up once every few weeks.
