These 3D printed gardens have an actual living ecosystem produced by a 3D printer. A team of students from the University of Maribor in Slovenia have developed a 3D-printer that can print objects. This printer allows you to produce living materials that can essentially create a small ecosystem.

It prints using a mixture of soil and water, grass seeds, where the printed designs are capable of sprouting and turning green over time. These 3D printed gardens would change the way living plants can adapt to different environments. This extraordinary experiment just shows how powerful and accurate 3D printers are, making objects a reality and how they can change the way people like to garden outdoors. This project is just another step in how technology and the environment work together.
