What started off as merely a gift for a friend, according to designer ShamefulSquid, has bloomed into a surprise entrepreneurial endeavour that makes a perfect gift for any and all fans of the Pokémon franchise.

Although dubbed as the ‘Succulent Monster’, the gorgeous little succulent plant pot bears a striking resemblance to Nintendo’s very first grass starter Pokémon, Bulbasaur.

For only $50, you too can grow your own Bulbasaur. Simply plant a touch of Echeveria and prepare to “catch ’em all”.
