Hello, I'm Brian.
The biggest boy in the Islands Collection
Create a splish-splash of colorful life anywhere, even in the tiniest of spaces. Islands are perfect for your office, dorm room or yacht! Brian is our biggest boy, perfect for large indoor plants he makes a spacious home that allows for healthy roots. Zip him up, zip him down, Brian has four zippers to help you shape your plant the way you’d like.
Plants are our natural friends, so let's give them a cozy home they’ll love and thrive in. Made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, Pockets are soft-sided, breathable, modular and infectiously fun! And they’re made right here in the USA by our Woolly little Family.
It's not rocket science, it's Pocket Science!
In a regular pot, plants tend to get root bound, coiling inwards and eventually strangling themselves. Tina’s breathable sides allow excess moisture to evaporate. Letting plants aerate helps them to breath and grow strong, healthy roots.
2.) MOISTURE BARRIER
Tina has a moisture barrier that wraps all the way across the bottom and up the sides. This ensures floors do not get wet.
3.) SMART WATERING
The moisture barrier also creates a reservoir of water – much like a self-watering container – that allows plants to drink at their leisure. The soil stays moist for a longer period of time, and keeps plants healthier and happier. The barrier also conserves water and keeps soil’s nutrition inside the Pocket.

2. Choose your favorite full-sized plants.
What you’ve heard is true, most indoor plants that kick the bucket do so as a result of being overwatered. However, we’ve done a few things to our Islands to help stop that from happening.
What Kind of Water, How Much and How Often?
We recommend watering Brian with filtered water. How much and how often you will need to water depends entirely on the plant you choose. As a guide, three cups of water per week is good for Brian. Scale up and down from there by paying attention to your soil. It’s important your soil gets a bit dry in between watering, in general you want your soil to feel like a moist brownie mix.
Brian likes to be watered slowly. Use a long-spout watering can or a wine bottle, and aim for the center of the Pocket. Take your time with the watering so that the water sinks into Brian’s soil and makes its way down to the reservoir.
Should you overwater your Island, you will see small beads of water form at the sides. Fear not, just stop watering! We’ve equipped all of our little guys with breathable sides so the excess moisture will be able to evaporate out of your Pocket’s sides.
