These Adorable Dinosaur Planters Water Your Plants For You

Friday, June 11, 2021

If you’ve ever wanted to grow your own herbs on a windowsill and use them in your daily cooking, these adorable dinosaur planters help take the effort out of keeping indoor plants alive. While the herbs inside of them still need access to sunlight (so you’ll want to place them near a window), these planters have a unique self-watering design that makes them not just cute but super-practical, as well.

Since it’s inevitable that someone will space on watering their herbs at some point (or will have to be away from home for a few days), these planters only require that the dish that the dinosaur “drinks” from is filled with water; the planter does the rest, allowing the roots to absorb the necessary amount of water through the dino’s tongue when they need it. This also prevents you from over-watering the herbs, too.

Choose your favorite dino or collect the entire set: The orange Triceratops comes with sweet basil seeds, the green Stegosaurus contains lucky clover, and the red T-Rex comes with wild strawberry seeds.

According to reviews, these Japanese-made planters make a fun and quirky gift for the dinosaur-loving people in your life, especially kids. And just imagine the batches of pesto you can make with your own basil plant growing in your kitchen.
