Unique planter that I am using as a chocolate dish; hanging rope is NOT included
I love this Umbra Nesta planter. It is cute and extremely versatile. It is also small.It comes in four (4) pieces and the hanging rope is NOT included. In the package is the planter, the wire holder, a base plate, and a hanging loop. The base plate and hanging loop are interchangeable and cannot be used at the same time. Since I am using this as a candy dish, I screwed the base plate into the protrusion on top of the wire holder and then turned it over so the dish could sit in the circular hole of the wire frame. Had I wanted to hang this, I would have screwed in the loop onto the protrusion and tied a rope to that, then inserted the planter into the holder.This is very small and great for succulents like cactus or hens and chicks plants. A small ivy or pothos plant would look good in here too but there is no drainage hole. I prefer to use this as a candy holder. It is versatile enough for anything small, like holding change and holding tiny tea tins, various lip balms, matchbooks, or even as a floating candle display.My only disappointment is that it does not come with the black rope pictured. At the current price of $24.00, I feel they should have included that because a suitable rope is not that easy to find.
