Watch your houseplant’s growth really take off in this Saturn V planter

Watch your houseplant’s growth really take off in this Saturn V planter

from arduino.cc

As first reported by Technabob, almost two years after he made a rather stunning Saturn V lamp, SimonRob decided to create something a bit different in the form of his Saturn V planter.

The device is based on the lower section portion of a 3D-printable rocket model, which is modified and sealed to hold dirt and water. A succulent now pops out where the rest of the rocket should be, and when combined with a 30mm thick wood plank, gives it a very unique and polished look.

A switch on the front lights up the printed flame assemblies emanating from the engines, using a trio of SMD LEDs on each exhaust. These LEDs are controlled by an Arduino Nano-compatible nestled inside the wooden base to produce random lighting effects when an activation button is pressed.

If you're interested in making your own version, PMD Way has you covered with a huge range of parts including Arduino Nano compatible boards, jumper wires and more.
