Hey Planty People!
I recently made a big purchase and bought myself an Ikea Milsbo cabinet! I do plan on make multiple videos on this guy and updated my thoughts on it when I’ve had it longer. Please watch until the end of the video and leave a like and a comment! If you’re enjoying my content, please consider subscribing so that you don’t miss any future uploads.
I just bought the small Milsbo cabinet in white. I live in a 4 seasons climate so its to cold for me to set it up. So for the spring/summer when my area starts to get in plants, I'm going to us mine for just Hoya's of all kinds that I can find. I've bought all white pots for the cabinet I can't wait to get started. I love all the plants in your cabinet they are beautiful.
I wanted to get one buy they’re always sold out and they sell quick
Yes, it is worth the hype! Very pleased with mine. Hoyas are so happy with it. I have three shelves & weather striping. Not true that you have to have a hole drilled out at the bottom. I wrapped the cords out and around the bottom side of the door. No issue. I didn't go with the glass shelves, I modified to fit grated metal shelves. No humidifier since all my hoyas are in semi hydro, they put off so much humidity. My cabinet stays at 90% humidity with two 5 inch fans.
The cons listed in this video can be overcome with modifications. Also, I had no issue with the doors. I'd say go back over your install and make sure everything was screwed in correctly and glass panels/ siding are fitting snugly at the top.
Love this video! The melanochrysum looks amazing <3
ok but you said you hate ferns but theres a fern in the corner of this vid plz explain yourself ma'am
My doors are uneven too! I have to fix it.
I always want the bad news 1st, that way the good news can make the bad not so bad.
I actually just got my milsbo and finishing setting it up tonite.
I think is pretty cool, just not for me, I rather spend that on a plant/plants lol. I can’t wait to see the tour of yours tho 💚
Hey! Did you try levelling the cabinet? The feet are like screws for that purpose. Takes a little playing around but you can get it levelled that way. If you already tried that, ignore this 😉.
Love this!!! I’ve been thinking about getting one when we buy a house for our calatheas – I think they look so elegant!
I highly recommend blue taping the entire bottom panel before drilling. It will protect the surface from metal fragments and drill bit scratches. Then vacuum before removing the tape.
Heather the milsbo looks AMAZING, it really showcases your plants!! Thank you for sharing the pros and cons! on an unrelated note lol your hair looks so cute!! <3
I want one but I literally have no space 😔
