LEGO is launching a botanical collection for serial plant killers.
LEGO’s products aren’t just for kids. Last year, the company dedicated an entire section of its website to adult customers, featuring more complex sets that clock in at thousands of pieces. The latest collection caters to builders who are all grown up—though maybe not grown enough to keep plants alive on their own.
As designboom reports, the Botanical Collection from LEGO reimagines flowers, succulents, and bonsai trees as plastic brick sculptures. The elaborate sets hold their own against the living plants you might find at your local nursery. The “potted” flowers in the line include the elegant white orchid and the vibrant Bird of Paradise. Once you’re done building, the 756-piece flower bouquet set is ready to be displayed in a real vase of your choosing (no water required).
“though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed… convince me that you have a seed there, and i am prepared to expect wonders.”
