The Floating Pot Lets You Know When Your Plants are Parched

Killing flowers is about to be a lot harder to thanks to the Floating Pot. The Floating Pot is a 2011 RedDot Design Award winner that tells you exactly when it's time to water your plants.

The Floating Pot has a simple design that lets you eyeball the water level of your flower pot. The pot is designed with a small section of cork that floats or sinks based on the amount of water in the pot. The design is ridiculously simple and incredibly clever, especially since most houseplants (at least my houseplants) tend to die of neglect. You can see images of the Floating Pot, along with a ton of other creative flower pot designs here.
