Super Mario Bros. Potted Plants: Just Add Sunshine

by Paul Strauss

Here’s the perfect thing to plant out in your garden if you’re too busy stuck inside playing video game to water your plants.

Based on the various flora from the Mushroom Kingdom (not including the mushrooms themselves), these potted plants require absolutely no care.


The plants themselves are made from melted Perler beads, doing away with that pesky soil and water and replacing them with, well, styrofoam and nothing. I suppose you could sprinkle some water and plant food on them if you really wanted to, but they’ll do just fine without. Although the Piranha Plant does like to be fed the occasional plumber.


The set of plants was made by Etsy seller Melloduck, and includes a Piranha Plant (10″ tall), a Fire Flower (7″ tall), and the lesser-known Nipper Plant (5″ tall). A set of 3 plants, including matching green terracotta pots – will set you back $35 (USD) – a small price to pay for a completely care-free garden.
