Karim Rashid's Grobal Plant Pots Are Self-Watering

Grobal Self-Watering Pots Try to Save Innocent Lives

I avowed to use technology last week to help me keep plants alive — a daunting feat if you know me — but Botanicalls, though impressive and aggressively geeky, is just a little too involved for me. Enter Grobal pots, which, though low tech, are exactly the kind of gadget I need.

Grobal's sophisticated reservoir knows when the plant needs water and nutrients and gives it up, unlike, well, me. Extra points for the drop-dead gorgeous colors, courtesy of designer Karim Rashid!

I want some of these for two reasons: They are super chic and I can't stand terra cotta pots...they just don't fit with my decor and two I really cannot remember to water plants. :)

These are awesome! Perfect for a person such as myself who definitely lacks her mother's green thumb.

seeing as how i have a natural green thumb, i can take care of my plants solo. but for those who can't it would be great.

Ooo!! I want one!! Or two! lol My sister &I accidently killed a money plant. :( We weren't paying attention to who was watering it & we ended up drowning it. :T I wonder if they come with the seeding for the plants or if you have to supply those yourself..

It's cute. I wouldn't get it for myself, but I'd definitely buy it for any brown-thumb friend or accidental plant-murderers.
