This Saturn V Rocket Planter Is Ready to Lift Off

This Saturn V Rocket Planter Is Ready to Lift Off
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.

Venus Flytrap Hat Is More Like a Venus Humantrap

Venus Flytrap Hat Is More Like a Venus Humantrap
I’ve never been a fly, so I don’t know what it’s like to be eaten by a carnivorous plant. Suffice it to say, I’m sure it’s rather unpleasant. Still, I’ve always been fascinated by these plants that can open and close to grab their lunch, and then digest them for nutrients.

Baby Yoda Gets a Chia Pet Hover Stroller

Baby Yoda Gets a Chia Pet Hover Stroller
Who doesn’t love Baby Yoda? He’s adorable, inquisitive, and a little badass. We also don’t know anything about where he came from or why he has his abilities, which makes him a bit mysterious. Eventually, I’m sure these things will be revealed, and hopefully he’ll continue to be as cute as the day we first laid eyes on him.

Pac-Man Succulent Planters Trade Quarters for Cacti

Pac-Man Succulent Planters Trade Quarters for Cacti
You know what the ghosts from Pac-Man could use? Plants growing out of their heads, that’s what. Yeah, that makes them much more adorable, and less intimidating for sure. That’s why I love these Pac-Man ghost planters from Dips and Prints.

If Chewbacca and Groot Had a Baby…

If Chewbacca and Groot Had a Baby…
Chewbacca and Groot have some things in common. They’re both big, strong, brown, and men of action – not words. But neither of them is particularly cute (though Baby Groot is a different story.)  But if you combined the furry mop of Chewie with the plant-growing abilities of Groot, then shrunk them down to pint-size, the offspring would be simply adorable.

Super Mario Fire Flower Garden Statue: No Green Thumb Required

Super Mario Fire Flower Garden Statue: No Green Thumb Required
This Super Mario Fire Flower Garden Statue is going to look great keeping watch over your garden. You never know when a plumber might happen by and need some fireballs after all. The 12-inch resin statue weighs 3.5 pounds and is meant to be displayed in a flower bed so your neighbors can say, “Hey, I like that game too.”

Super Mario Piranha Plant Puppet Doesn’t Shoot Plush Fireballs

Super Mario Piranha Plant Puppet Doesn’t Shoot Plush Fireballs
If you ever played Super Mario Bros. back in the day, you will remember the sinking feeling of moving through a level only to find a giant fire piranha plant shooting fireballs and set to eat you.

This LEGO Cactus Is a Thorny Proposition

This LEGO Cactus Is a Thorny Proposition
Most of the LEGO builds we see around here are buildings, creatures, robots, or maybe vehicles. What’s particularly rare are LEGO creations designed to look like plants. Even more exotic is a LEGO cactus. This awesome custom LEGO build was created by Brother Steven, and it looks just like a desert cactus, complete with a flowering top, and lots of nasty thorns to keep any LEGO herbivores away.

Ford and Jose Cuervo Team to Turn Agave Plants into Car Parts

Ford and Jose Cuervo Team to Turn Agave Plants into Car Parts
I can think of few stranger corporate collaborations than that of a major automaker and a major tequila maker. But that’s exactly what’s going on between a Ford and Jose Cuervo. You see, engineers at Ford have figured out a way to convert old agave plants into car parts.

Air Bonsai Floating Plant: Magnepiphyte

Air Bonsai Floating Plant: Magnepiphyte
We’ve seen small-scale magnetic levitation applied to toys and food. Hoshinchu’s Air Bonsai is another novel application of the technique, combining it with miniature plants, hand made porcelain and antique Japanese fabric to make beautiful decor.

Light Cube Lets You Grow Carnivorous Plants: Feed Me Seymour!

Light Cube Lets You Grow Carnivorous Plants: Feed Me Seymour!
I’ve always had a fascination with Venus Flytraps because they eat bugs. The plants also creep me out more than a little; I blame Rick Moranis and The Little Shop of Horrors for that. If you want to put some cool and creepy plants on your desk to offset those normal plants your coworkers have, this is your ticket.

3D Printed Snack Concept Grows Plants & Mushrooms: Delayed Gratification

3D Printed Snack Concept Grows Plants & Mushrooms: Delayed Gratification
One of the great things about 3D printing is its immediacy. Sure, it still takes a few hours to print even a small object, but it may have taken days or weeks to have that same item commissioned.

Biodegradable Pet Urn Tree Kit: From Death, Comes Life

Biodegradable Pet Urn Tree Kit: From Death, Comes Life
Some people turn trash into money (tote bags sewn from discarded juice packs, for instance.) Then there are those who find ways to turn death into life. Not the raising-from-the-dead type of things, because that’s obviously impossible, but the green type of transformation, such as the one that happens with the Bios Urn.

Sprout Growing Pencils Sharpen Your Gardening Skills

Sprout Growing Pencils Sharpen Your Gardening Skills
Way back in 2012, we talked about some unique pencils that write as you expect, but have a unique feature. Once these pencils are too short to write with, you can stick them in a pot of dirt, eraser end first, and they will grow plants.

SCiO Scanner Identifies Food, Medicine & Plants: Monocorder

SCiO Scanner Identifies Food, Medicine & Plants: Monocorder
Last year we found out about TellSpec, a portable scanner that can identify the composition of food as well as provide nutritional data. A company called ConsumerPhysics is raising funds for SCiO, which works similarly to TellSpec but seems to be more versatile.

Go Green, Rambo-Style: Shoot Up Your Neighborhood with Some Flower Shells
These special shotgun shells take the green revolution to the next level. If planting stuff the traditional way is too boring for you, then you might want to shoot up gardens instead with Flower Shells as your ammo.
