Monitree, A System for Growing Vining Plants Around Your Computer Monitor

In things I didn’t know I needed and am still not convinced I do, there’s Monitree (monitor + tree), a modular system for growing vining plants around the perimeter of your computer monitor. You know, to liven up your workspace with some greenery. Alternatively, just buy a potted plant like a normal person.

Currently, an already-funded Kickstarter project, the Monitree system uses leakproof transparent tubes that mount to your monitor via double-sided tape and a full spectrum grow light, so you don’t have to open a window for your plant to grow. That’s a good thing, too, because I already boarded over them while prepping my apartment for the zombie apocalypse.

The Monitree includes everything you need to grow vining plants, like the recommended pohuehue (Muehlenbeckia complexa) or climbing fig (Ficus pumila), but the actual plants themselves. You’ll need to pick up those at a local nursery or floral shop. Or out of your neighbor’s yard, which is where I also go to get flowers for my wife.
