Geeky Flower Pots - The Lord of the Rings

This project addresses the problem: why people like myself aren't into plants.

My wife is an avid gardener, so when we sat down and talked about doing something together, this project was born. She get her plants, I get my recreation of classic movie scenes. We both enjoyed the process of building the project immensely.

Pictured is the first flower pot in the series of our collaboration. It is based on a classic scene from Lord of the Rings.

I used a bonsai plant for the scene, because the thick stem and the exposed roots, but the beauty of this project is that anyone can go and find the plant that works best for the scene.
