Pachyderm Plant Nanny

Thirsty elephants can fit up to eight liters of water in their trunks, which they then blow into their mouths to drink. This little guy holds much less, but just the right amount to keep kitchen herbs perfectly watered through a clever, mess-free system. Just place a standard (325 ml) pot in this adorable, green-thumb pachyderm, and fill the trunk with water for a self-contained system that spares your windowsill, shelf, or kitchen counter the damp and dirt associated with indoor gardening. The stoneware planter will self-water herbs and other plants for up to two weeks. Designed by Scott Henderson in Brooklyn; handmade in China.
