Giant Ice Cream Cone Planter: You Have to Eat Your Greens
Wafer cones: they’re everyone’s least favorite kind of ice cream cone behind waffle and sugar. Me? I’ve always been more of a sundae-in-a-cup man myself. But enough making myself hungry. This is the giant Safe-T Cup ice cream cone planter created by Rotary Hero and available at Urban Outfitters for $55.

VHS Tapes Repurposed as Planters: Captain Planet Would Be Proud
Remember when VHS tapes were the gold-standard in movie rentals? Seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? And where are all those VHS tapes now? I mean, besides my packrat parents’ basement? Landfills? Well, Etsy shop niftyrecyclables is doing their part to reduce, reuse, and recycle by selling VHS tapes that have been transformed into little planters.

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.

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.

Baby Groot Flower Pot Takes Root

Baby Groot Flower Pot Takes Root
Few things in this universe are as cute as Baby Groot, and luckily for all of us, we got to see a lot of him in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Sadly, Groot will be a bit older by the time the next movie comes out.

Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter: For Fire Flowers

Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter: For Fire Flowers
This Super Mario Boo Ghost Planter will look awesome in your home. I would put a Piranha Plant in it. Or some vine that will let you climb into the clouds. It’s pretty adorable. The only problem that I see with this Boo Ghost planter is that your plant might take on the characteristics of Boo, meaning that when you look at it, it will freeze and not grow.

If you are a fan of botany and D&D, why not take both with you everywhere you go by wearing one of these D20 planters as a necklace? It’s a critical hit for fashion and plant life.

Dalek Planter: Germinate! Germinate!

Dalek Planter: Germinate! Germinate!
Nothing takes the steam out of a Dalek like taking his dead carcass and putting it in your garden to use as a planter. Daleks don’t look menacing at all with flowers coming out of them.

ION Audio Planter Speaker: Sound for Green Thumbs

ION Audio Planter Speaker: Sound for Green Thumbs
Here in Chicago, it’s so frakkin’ cold right now that growing plants is about the furthest thing from my mind. But I keep telling myself that spring is only a few months away. And once I’m hanging out on my deck and enjoying the nice weather again, my planters might have something other than dead branches in them.

Speaker Planter Answers Question: What’s the Sound of a Plant Growing?

Speaker Planter Answers Question: What’s the Sound of a Plant Growing?
If you’re both a horticulturist and an audiophile, then have I got the perfect thing for you. Ok, it’s probably more for the gardener than the audio fanatic since it doesn’t actually function as a speaker, but this thing is still kind of a neat idea.

Go Green on the Go with These Quirky Wearable Planters
