These models allow you to make planters that hang right in your window!
The files attached are open-topped mason jar lids with a strong loop on the brim. When used with a locking suction cup hook you can safely hang them on your window or any other smooth flat surface.
I created these because I need easy access to my herb garden while cooking because Im too lazy to go outsize to trim fresh herbs. And when herbs go untrimmed they go to seed faster and taste terrible.
If you plant pre-sprouted herbs like I did in the photos then I strongly recommend using a wide mouth jar of no less than 1 pint (16 oz) so you can fit the plant into it. Also I recommend using a tinted color mason jar to help protect the plant roots from the sun and because it looks cool.
In the photos I planted lettuce, oregano, dill, mint, and a spider plant (which is super robust).

Materials and methods
Print settings: .15mm layer thickness max (for the jar threads), 3+ perimeters minimum, 15% infill minimum.
You can use any material. The blue lid in the photos is ABS that changes color when it gets hot. I anticipate this functioning as an early overheating warning in the summer.
