C’mon, we know there are a few of you out there who couldn’t keep a potted plant alive if a botanist was holding your hand, but there’s hope for you all yet. At least, there is if QianJun Gao’s masterpiece ever makes it past the drawing board. This eloquently dubbed Practice Plant features a trio of “flowers” that display barometric readings and turn colors depending on status, and the surrounding leaves will droop to signify their need for attention. Thankfully, even the brownest of thumbs could always restart this puppy and try again, and with enough trial runs, maybe one day those hanging baskets wouldn’t sway out of your way as you waltz by.
