Do you have a green thumb? Would you like to care for an endangered plant? Well Fascinations ( the same folks behind the USB Aquarium not so long ago) has just debuted their latest piece of scientific fun – the Plant Buddy. The Plant Buddy is a selection of endangered cacti that are put into ultra mini terrariums to take with you wherever you go as a charm. You only need to water it every 30 days and once it is full grown, you plant it back into the earth, thus repopulating and saving endangered species. Who knows, you can make your backyard look like a desert full of endangered cacti.
The housing for the rare cacti is super secure as to not harm the plant inside but to allow it to dangle from your keys, wear as a necklace, on a purse, backpack, or even your cellphone. Just because it is a small little guy, it doesn’t mean it doesn’t need care, you will have to water it once a week for it to survive.
We spotted this portable greenhouse last year at CES and now its finally coming to market. The Plant Buddy might feature a collection of endangered plant species but they are all nursery grown. The Plant Buddies will retail for $5.95.
