If the keyboard planter doesn’t inspire people around the country to keep their computer peripherals clean, then nothing will. This flowery keyboard was created by a Redditor prankster who had grown tired of seeing his office mate use a dirty and disgusting keyboard.

Instead of throwing the keyboard out or suggesting that it be cleaned, the prankster covered it in seeds and began to water it. "The Cressening," as the keyboard was called, began to grow within two weeks. The keyboard planter is a great prank, no question, but it should also serve as an inspiration folks who are wondering what to with their old computer peripherals. Why throw out a keyboard when you could use it to add some green to your desk or home?
