As 21st Century humans we can hardly take care of ourselves, never mind plants. What with the internet and trying to take the perfect selfie, our beloved greenery can often become neglected. Left on a windowsill to succumb to a slow death screaming ‘Feed me, Seymour!’

Luckily, these adorable Peropon Drinking Animal Planters need next to no attention whatsoever. You can reap the benefits of oxygen-giving, sweet smelling miniature plants without lifting a single digit. All it takes is a sip of their tongue and the plants on their backs fill with delicious nourishment. They’re completely self-sufficient, unlike those other pesky house plants…so needy.

Choose from four different ceramic critters, each with their own type of plant perched atop their sweet little heads. These stubby-legged pets are ready to brighten up your desk or window sill. Their chirpy faces seem to say everything is going to be alright.

As I was trawling through listings on Ebay quite a while ago, as I usually do when I have some time to kill, I stumbled upon these absolutely adorable Peropon drinking animal planters! I found a set of 4, they come with soil, a water bowl and seeds, and they water themselves by using a piece of felt. The seeds that they came with will grow wild strawberries, basil, peppermint and clover. I’m mostly looking forward to the wild strawberries and the peppermint, I think it will end up smelling so lovely! The planters come in 4 different animal shapes, a frog, a panda, a cat and a dog. They’re really easy to take care of since they’re pretty much self sufficient, all you have to do is just refill the water bowl now and then to make sure they won’t dry out. ( I almost wrote water bowel, wouldn’t have been quite the same!)

I have had mine for a week by the time this is posted, this progress picture above was taken after four days, so they do start growing fairly quickly. I kind of got the packets of seeds mixed up when I was planting them so I honestly have no idea which ones these were, they just might have been the wild strawberries! I could be wrong though, but I wouldn’t mind if this was the mint either, I love using dried mint and peppermint for teas and whatnot!

I think these would be great for anyone who wants to cultivate herbs but doesn’t have the garden for it, or just for those who would want a really cute decoration sitting in their window sill. If these grow well I would definitely consider purchasing duplicates just so I could have my own little herb animal army! (Plus it would mean that I would end up with even more wild strawberries! I have some in the garden but I don’t trust them to not have been soiled by slugs or free roaming animals.. The only downside of living in the countryside, really.)

Have you seen anything like these before? Alternatively, do you have these cute planters too? What do you think of them?

    I’ve seen planters that have similar concept but using a straw and normal water glass and I thought they looked quite adorable, i was planning to buy them

    Adorable AND efficient! Can’t beat that combination. My mom loves frogs and keeps a very prolific garden, so I think I need to get her one!
