This Saturn V Rocket Planter Is Ready to Lift Off

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 29, 2020


There are lots of types of pots out there for planting things, but most of them are simply variants of the same basic shapes. I’d rather keep my plants in something a bit geekier, like this custom-built Saturn V rocket planter by SimonRob.

Simon created this awesome 3D-printed planter based on the main stage of NASA’s Saturn V rocket. He started out with a digital model by RealAbsurdity (which I now must absolutely print for myself.) After sanding and smoothing the printed parts, Simon panstakingly painted the rocket, and then added plastic flames that he embellished with markers. To complete the effect, he wired up three tiny LEDs inside of each nozzle, and then programmed an Arduino nano to make the lights flicker when switched on.

The finished piece looks amazing, and the little succulent that Simon planted on top looks like it’ll be very happy living there. If you want to build your own Saturn V rocket planter, you cage find all of the construction details over on Instructables. While you’re there, be sure to check out Simon’s nifty Space Shuttle model that he built using recycled circuit boards and electronic parts.
