Flower pot rolls over when it needs water


Unlike some plants that call you on the phone when they are thirsty for water, The “Roly-Poly Pot” concept by Samgmin Bae begins to tilt over when its water levels are low, thus serving as a visual reminder of their thirst. Each pot can be adjusted to work with the plant’s watering needs and schedule. Pretty cool, but we wonder how much dirt would escape every time you get lazy and don’t water your plants.

    Not only that, but if you have a top-heavy plant it could play hell with the weight distribution.

    In addition to the dirt-escape-problem, there’s the fact that (as pictured, at least), watering the plant in the tilted position will actually worsen the tilt! You’d have to hold it tilted in the opposite direction for a little while after you watered it to make sure the water ends up in the reservoir. A neat idea, but that last bit ruins it for me.
