A while back we wrote an article about gamer-friendly houseplants. In case you missed it you can read it right here. To our surprise, this is one of our most-read articles! So we figured it’s about time for a follow-up. So for all you houseplant-killing gamers out there. Here’s part two of ‘Gamer friendly houseplants’. Extra gamer friendly this time. Why? Because it’s the LEGO edition!
Why a LEGO edition?
We were so hyped by the LEGO Botanical Collection that we decided that this is the way to go when it comes to houseplants. What is the Lego Botanical collection you say? The Botanical collection is a series of LEGO sets that are designed to provide a relaxing and engaging building experience for adults, while also celebrating the beauty of nature. The collection includes sets that allow builders to create detailed, realistic-looking models of different plant species. But our definition of LEGO plants doesn’t stop with the Botanical Collection. When we say LEGO plants, we mean every plant you can create with LEGO (or LEGO-like alternatives).
Extra Gamer-friendly houseplants?
But why choose LEGO plants over real plants or other ‘fake’ plants? And why are these plants extra Gamer-friendly houseplants? Let me explain.
Lego plants are made from durable plastic and are resistant to damage, making them a great choice for the long run and of course for playtime! They are also easy to clean and maintain (even easier than a fake plastic plant), so they will look great for years to come.
LEGO plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing you to create a wide range of flowers and plants. They are also easy to move, rebuild and rearrange, so you can change up your scenes whenever you like.
Unlike real plants, LEGO plants don’t need watering, pruning, or other maintenance, making them a low-maintenance alternative. They also don’t require sunlight or special care, so you can use them in any room or environment. Like your dark game room.
Real plants can be hazardous to small children and pets, as some plants can be toxic if ingested or cause skin irritation. Lego plants are safe for children and pets and are a great option for those with allergies or sensitivities to real plants.
Just plain fun!
LEGO plants may not necessarily be considered “gamer-friendly” in the traditional sense, as it is not specifically designed for use with or in video games. However, the collection could still appeal to gamers who are interested in building and creating, as it provides a challenging and immersive building experience. Many gamers enjoy games that involve creativity, such as building and designing virtual environments, characters, and objects. LEGO plants provide a similar creative outlet in the real world, allowing builders to use their imagination and skills to construct detailed and realistic models of different plant species.
