The 8 Best Artificial Plants from the LEGO® Botanical Collection

Potted plants and flower bouquets can add a special touch to indoor spaces. Whether used as office or home décor, it's nice to have a bit of greenery to liven up the space.

But using living plants indoors is easier said than done. For starters, keeping track of a plant's water, light and food needs can be tricky, and sunny window sills can be hard to come by in small living spaces. Safety is also a concern with living plants. Many are not pet or child safe and, if you're not careful, they can harbour nasty bug and fungus infestations.

For plant lovers that want all the beauty of the natural world without the stress, there's the LEGO® Botanical Collection. Fun to build and beautiful to display, these decorative artificial plants come in a wide variety of shapes, colours and sizes. The best part? These LEGO flowers are guaranteed never to wilt or die, and there’s no watering required.

We’ve rounded up a list of the best artificial plants from the LEGO Botanical Collection. Whether you’re looking for décor for your own space, a project to do with someone special or a gift for a plant-loving friend, there’s a perfect set for you. Keep reading to discover the eight best LEGO artificial plants:

1. Bouquet of Roses

Bring home a dozen of these beautiful red blooms with the LEGO® Icons Bouquet of Roses (10328). With separate instructions and brick bags for building roses in three stages of bud, blooming and fully open, this set is an absolute joy to build alone or with someone else. The long stems make them perfect for displaying in a vase alongside white sprigs of brick-built baby’s breath.

2. Tiny Plants

We understand that flowers aren’t for everyone. The LEGO® Icons Tiny Plants (10329) set is perfect for those of us who like our plants a little more prickly. This collection of nine models of cacti, succulents, tropical and even carnivorous plants has a little something for everyone. With separate building instructions and models ranging from easy to advanced, this set will keep you entertained for hours. And when the building is finished, keep the fun going by arranging a plant display you can enjoy for years to come – without worrying what you’re going to feed the Venus flytrap.

3. Wildflower Bouquet

Bring the great outdoors inside with the LEGO® Icons Wildflower Bouquet (10313). Designed to look just like their organic counterparts, brick-built flowers such as cornflowers, lavender, Welsh poppies and more bring vibrant colour to any space. With adjustable petals and stems, you can customise your bouquet to fit your vision. LEGO fans will appreciate the creative use of familiar brick pieces, and certain elements are even made from eco-friendly plant-based plastics.

Looking to add even more botanical beauty to your arrangement? Try combining the wildflowers with the LEGO Flower Bouquet (10280) for a truly stunning floral display.

4. Tranquil Garden

Find a moment of peace with the LEGO® Icons Tranquil Garden (10315). This relaxing build is based on the designs of traditional Japanese gardens. An arched bridge crosses a stream filled with koi carp and lotus flowers. Build delicate rocks, stone lanterns and plants like cherry trees and bamboo stalks. Open the pavilion to see the detailed tea ceremony room, complete with teapot, whisk and cups of tea. Fans love the customisable aspects of this set that allows them to rearrange the plants to suit their mood.

5. Build-Your-Own Arrangement with LEGO® Flowers

Let your creativity bloom with a build-your-own bouquet. Create your own arrangement with LEGO® flowers such as Cherry Blossoms (40725), Sunflowers (40524), Lotus Flowers (40647) and Roses (40460), or add them to the Flower Bouquet (10280) or Wildflower Bouquet (10313). Or make a mixed-media bouquet, bundling your flowers with chocolates, origami flowers or something else that inspires you. Whatever you choose, one thing is certain: you’ll make something that is truly unique to you.

6. Bonsai Tree

Celebrate an ancient art with the LEGO® Bonsai Tree (10281). This relaxing model captures the sense of harmony and balance found in traditional bonsai cultivation. As you build, you can customise the shape of the branches and choose between green leaves and pink blossoms to create your final design. With a brick-built pot and stand for display, you can keep this symbol of serenity on your desk.

7. Succulents

Succulents seem to be everywhere these days, celebrated for their low-maintenance nature and distinctive look. Enjoy a fun twist on this home décor trend with the LEGO® Icons Succulents set. Build mini versions of nine different succulent plants such as aloe vera and moon cactus. Each has a pot so you can show them off separately, in small groups or all together for one big display. With separate bags and building instructions for each model, this is also a great activity to do with a friend or two.

8. Orchid

Add a touch of elegance to your décor with the LEGO® Icons Orchid (10311). The perfect blend of playfulness and sophistication, this relaxing build includes authentic details such as basal leaves, creeping aerial roots, and white and pink flowers. Keep an eye out for the little pink frog elements in the centre of each bright bloom!
