USB Greenhouse: Love It or Leave It?

Being one of those people who kills every living thing that comes into my household (besides boyfriends and animals), I am really digging this USB Greenhouse.

Plug it in and plant your seeds — it comes with marigold seeds, but you can sub in your favorite flower or other plant too — and the Greenhouse nurtures your little baby buds like my black thumb could never accomplish alone. It comes with artificial soil, a light, and a tray, and it will even tell you when it needs to be watered. Or in my case, beg.

What do you think? Desk brightener, or a little too on the artificial side?

I think it would look great on the desk in my office, and I wouldn't be worrying about it over the weekend! It's lovely!

i'm allergic. it's a nice way to add greenery to your space but then it doesn't seem very practical to me. call me crazy.

I usually kill all my plants too. This is such a cute idea!

There are power plugs that have USB outlets. Maybe plug it into one of those if you don't want to plug it into your computer for whatever reason. I kill everything I plant. Even with the help of this thing I'm not sure that'd change. I'd sure love a way to plant my own basil, though.

Geek I kill all my plants too!!!! My mom suggested that I buy cactus but Im scared that I will kill it and end up being less nurturing than the desert :(

Like Caroline, I'm always moving my laptop around and don't have a desktop so for me this wouldn't work too well. But I think it's a cute idea. If I ever get a desktop...I might snatch one of these up.
