What a bright idea! (pardon the pun)
A safely hollowed out incandescent bulb makes a lovely home for a bit of plant. Whether it's bamboo, a random houseplant cutting (as shown in the pictures), a mini terrarium, or home to some friendly brine shrimp, this vase will add class to your desk, windowsill, or kitchen counter. The possibilities are endless! Let me know what you discover lives beautifully inside your own vase!

This listing is for one standard size lightbulb approximately 11 cm tall, 6cm in diameter *at the largest point*, 1 1\/2 cm opening (inside measurement).

Note: greenery not included.

Cleaning instructions: If algae decides to move in with your bamboo without your permission, you can rid your vase of this pesky visitor by emptying out the vase, adding a little sand, a little water, and swishing it around (covering the top to prevent a small mess, of course) until the algae decides he'd rather live elsewhere.
