Two of the collaborators are the plant nursery Ind Habitat and Artibumi. Their exotic plants and unique pots are exhibited as well, including a few plants that are 50-100 years old. An air-conditioned and glass-walled room is dedicated for a bigger version of ‘grow light’ box by Artibumi/Tujuanbumi where desert plants are arranged beautifully. In the Simulation room, all forms of exhibited items are placed together, from artworks to plants, simulating a living room, facilitated by Sacred Monkey furniture.

The initial schedule of the exhibition was only until 19 May 2024, but it is then extended for another week due to the increase number of visitors. With the various creators and collaborators involved, the aim of the event is to bring pottery, plants and other fields to be introduced to and hopefully to embrace a wider audience.
