Roly Poly Pot - A No-Brainer To Keeping Your Plants Alive

roly-poly-pot-450-x-299.jpg

For those that have an awful time watering their plants on a consistent basis due to forgetfulness, this little design by Samgmin Bae could give them a standing chance to stay alive.

The Roly-Poly Pot concept works by the plant tipping to the side when it requires water. Due to a built-in water monitor and balancing system, the pot can measure the humidity level of the soil based on a pre-setting. Adjusted for different plants and their watering requirements, when dying of thirst, the pot slowly tips over using water as a counterweight.

It is still in the development stage but stands to be a great way to notify you or a house-sitter that your plants need some water!

  1. Heh…it’s nifty, if nothing else. I like the look of a round-bottom pot.

  2. Does anybody know about this site ( http://www.earthlab.com ) ? I have seen other environmental sites with carbon calculators like yahoo and tree huggers, but I am wondering what the deal with earthlab.com is? I saw they also published a list last month of the top ten greenest cities ( http://www.efficientenergy.org/Top-Ten-Green-Cities-in-the-United-States ). Does anyone know if this site is better than the others? Fill me in!

    I took their carbon foot print test and it was pretty interesting, they said that I put out 4.5 tons of carbon, does anyone know about any other tests?

  3. Wow, great concept. I am certainly one who has a hard time with keeping my plants alive. What a great reminder, the plants look as if they are calling to you :)
