It's best if you do not store your Flower Watering Pot in the shed: its sharpest feature only carries out its clever task when the receptacle is left out in the rain. Designer Carl Liu has come up with a wonderfully whimsical object that's optimized to passively collect falling water to enable sustainable gardening practices.

This eccentric object comprises a container that takes the iconic shape of flower pot and includes a curving spout with a broad, perforated faucet. The Medusa of the watering can world, the product is crowned with seven other serpentine tubes with flaring funnels that face directly towards the sky. With these, the Flower Watering Pot has sufficient surface area to gather a great number of raindrops; it will be full the next time you set out to feed your plants.
