These would go great with chrome mannequin hands and broken glass.

I've been seeing this on FB and some friends and relatives asked me if I had one yet. Glad someone posted it on here.

Such a cool idea. Trees are rooted and bound to the earth for their life force, its an interesting concept to unbind them and set them free in a sense.

Not to mention optimal light with a spinning tree.

I think its cool and functional. Probably wouldn't need a fan for air circulation lol. Way over priced for what it is though.

That floating bonsai video is cool, but kinda creepy with all those trees spinning in the same room. I dunno what people would think if they showed up and saw a dozen plants levitating and spinning around. :D Makes me laugh thinking about it though!

Is it just me? If my plants were spinning around I would be shopping for an item to stop it :p

Or dizzy :p Honest though I just see the whole thing as drying out your plant and substrate way to fast.

Yes,I got a bit dizzy. But unless you activate the spinning it only floats. Or I imagine so. They make other levitating science gadgets. That float...I think spinning is only if set on that course.

Honestly I think it would steal the show with a tree. Maybe as an accent planting. Non-spinning of course.

I forget who it was, maybe Suthin, that put together a nice forest of trees on 3 or so matched for texture pieces of lace rock. Set them on clear acrylic stands of different heights and titled it after the floating mountains of the movie "Avatar", maybe they were the Hallelujah mountains?

Anyway, this is one way to have a levitated mountain type scene.

You know you can grow them conventionally, and just "levitate" them for display.

A neat idea, though it is unlikely I will shell out the bucks. But if I had a spare couple hundred laying around (never happens though) I would consider picking a set up as a "toy" for a fun display. Imaging little multicolored Satsuki azaleas in bloom spinning around. Spark up a blunt and sit back and space out. :rolleyes:
