Whether or not you are a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy, these Baby Groot planters are sure to dress up your desk or personal space.

What is A Baby Groot Flower Pot
Baby Groot planters are small plant holders based on the movie Guardians of the Galaxy. In the movie, the tree creature Groot makes a heroic sacrifice by protecting the other Guardians when their ship crash lands. With his ability to grow branches, Groot encircles the Guardians as they crash protecting their lives, leading to his demise. Unfortunately, for Groot, he is destroyed in the crash other than a small twig, which grows into Baby Groot.
A Baby Groot flower pot has been designed to hold plants without the fear of root rot. The pots have a bottom drain hole, which allows water to drain from the soil and out the bottom. This prevents the soil from remaining soggy, which can lead to problems with rot. Therefore, they aren’t only cute but make functioning plant holders too.

Best plants to grow in a baby Groot pot
When it comes to what type of plants are suitable growing in these cute Groot planters, think small. Succulents are my favorites, but there are other small plats that can work. Since the depth of the planting area is around 3 inches, you want to use plants without a large root system.
Check out these plant types and see which one you like best!
- Jade (Echinocactus grusonii)
- Zebra Plant (Haworthia fasciata)
- Rainbow Bush (Portulacaria afra variegata)
- Bush Sedum (Sedum dendroideum)

- Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula)
When it comes to keeping these plants alive in your Baby Groot flower pots, the biggest thing is not to over-water. Although the pots have bottom drain holes to release the excess water, soggy conditions create root rot problems.
During the growing seasons of spring through summer, you will probably need to water once each week. However, during winter when plants go into a dormant stage, cut back watering to about once every other week.
