About this Product

In my dream home, I would have many plants. Some of those plants would be real and some would be artificial. I've always been disappointed, however, that artificial plants arrive already grown. After all, watching a plant grow as you coax it out of the ground is half the beauty of it.

flowerBox is my answer to this dissapointment. It is a small and mysterious cube that arrives by courier from Shapeways. You open up the package, and follow the care instructions:

Step 1: Carefully but firmly bang out any extra support material that may remain inside your flowerBox.

Step 2: Take a black, waterproof marker and colour the side of the flowerBox that says 'black' completely black, as thoroughly as possible.

Step 3: Snap off the tab on the top of your flowerBox that prevented it from being jostled or damaged during shipping. Carefully place your flowerBox upright in a sunny location, with direct sunlight falling on the black side for several hours a day--flowerBox likes sun! If you wish, this location can be a flowerpot, since flowerBox happily coexists with other plants. Be careful! Once the protective tab is removed, jostling, shaking, pulling on the plant, or inverting flowerBox can kill it.

Step 4: Water flowerbox thoroughly every few days. If flowerBox is overwatered or doesn't receive enough sunlight it will not grow. But if all the care and conditions are just right, flowerBox will germinate and emerge within a week or two, and you can take great pride in a unique and personal artificial plant!
