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