Build an Indoor Garden With These LEGO-Like Planters

If you want to revitalize your living space, get a plant. Adding greenery to your home can improve your air quality and boost your productivity—and you don’t need to be a natural gardener to enjoy the benefits. A new line of stackable planters from Winmart Design makes it easy to grow healthy, vibrant plants without a ton of hands-on maintenance.

As My Modern Met reports, everything you need to keep your plants alive comes built into the LeGrow indoor garden. Reservoirs inside each planter store water, and a humidifier attachment releases moisture into the immediate environment. Both of these factors together mean you can spend less time refilling your watering can and more time enjoying your garden. The set also includes a lamp attachment, so plants can flourish without sunlight.

Another unique feature is the plastic connector: It snaps onto the bottom of each planter so you can stack them on top of one another LEGO-style. Depending on the amount of planters you own, you can configure them to fit any space.

Designer Haobin Lin and his team at Winmart Design launched their product on Kickstarter on April 18 and successfully reached their funding goal. Follow LeGrow on Facebook for updates from the company.

Learn to Paint Like Bob Ross in an Upcoming Facebook Live Event

Public television hero Bob Ross may no longer be with us, but you can still paint happy little trees in his honor. October 29, 2018 marks what would have been the 76th birthday of the beloved art teacher to the masses, and to honor his memory, the Quarto Group—publisher of the new book Painting With Bob Ross—is hosting a live-streamed painting party online.

Painting With Bob Ross provides step-by-step instructions to help you create some of the master’s favorite oil landscapes on your own. While Quarto’s October 23 painting party (a collaboration with Bob Ross, Inc.) can’t teach you how to mimic Ross's soothing voice, the celebration does include a painting session with Bernie Oropallo, a Certified Ross Instructor, who will demonstrate the techniques that Ross taught on The Joy of Painting.

The live-streamed instructional session will take place within the offices of a youth arts center in Beverly, Massachusetts, called Express Yourself. Oropallo will lead you through the process of painting “Distant Mountains,” one of the artworks included in the new book.

The painting lesson kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on October 23. To participate, log onto Facebook and head to the QuartoCreates page to join the live event. Before it starts, check out the event page here for a list of the supplies you’ll need to complete the painting. If you can’t make it to a computer that night, grab Painting With Bob Ross on Amazon ($15) to get the next best thing. If that’s not enough for you, we suggest you curl up with the official Bob Ross art book and/or a Bob Ross coloring book.
