Being a plant parent is an extremely rewarding job, but it’s not always an easy one. The hardest part is probably remembering to water the babies to keep them hydrated and thriving — I’m constantly forgetting! While most of them have been revived after a nice soak, these adorable animal planters* do the drinking on their own so they never dry out in the first place!
- So how does it work? These animal planters have long pink tongues that you allow to sit in a little dish of water. The water will travel up the tongue and right to your plants as they need it, keeping them nice and healthy. All you need to do is to make sure the dishes have a little water in them at all times. Pretty simple, eh?
- The animal planters are available in four different species. You can get a cat, a dog, a frog, or a panda (or all four, which would be my personal choice). All of them have the same pink tongue to drink from and they’re all equally adorable, so take your pick!
- They’re great for all types of plants. Whether you’re already growing herbs on your kitchen windowsill (they drink SO MUCH WATER) or have another little plant that just needs a new home and some serious hydration, these animal planters are a great choice. Just ensure the plant you want to put in them is small enough to fit the 7cm x 7.5cm x 10cm dimensions.
- These animal planters actually come with seeds! Say you don’t already have plants that need a new home but you’d like to grow some. Well, you’re in luck because each of the animals comes with seeds to grow your plants from scratch (with a little help from that pink tongue, of course). The cat has wild strawberry seeds, the dog has clover, the frog has mint, and the panda has basil. You also get soil and a water bowl with each one, so you’re ready to go right out of the box.
- They’re super reasonably priced. You can get your animal planters from Firebox for $13.99 HERE. It’s an amazing purchase you won’t regret, I’m sure.
