Techno Tree by Vivian Muller

I’m not very adept in growing any assortment of plants or flowers. It seems every type of vegetation in my house or in my cube just ends up being kaput. Though when I saw the Electree, there wasn’t any apprehension in wanting this especially when knowing that it would be very difficult for this to die on me.

Not only will this look good in any room, it’s also wonderfully inventive and functional.
