A third shared, “Probably the only thing that would survive my care!”

According to the LEGO website, “unlike a real flower, this plant does not need to be watered, making it a great gift idea for plant lovers.

“The flowers and leaves can be repositioned, allowing you to style the plant to create your own unique bird of paradise display.”
