The Groot Planter FAQ
Just in case you're shopping for a Groot planter or flower pot as a gift, and don't know the iconic figure yourself, we've put together a short FAQ that will help you understand the nature of your present.
Who is Groot?
Groot is a character in the comic books and movie Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequels. As such, he is a character in the Marvel universe and some consider him to be one of the Avengers. Groot is a huge walking tree-like figure that's apparently made of wood and has a limited vocabulary. He is best known for saying "I am Groot".
In the character's timeline, Groot starts out as a huge sentient and powerful tree-like warrior. He then sacrifices his life to save his friends and then manages to regrow from one of the twigs that his friends had saved of him. That's why you can see Groot in various life stages, including as an adorable baby, a child, a grumpy teenager, and a fully-grown being.
Here are some of baby Groot's most adorable moments -
Why use a Groot planter?
The character of Groot has a unique head shape. Its head is a bit like a tree bark, where the top lends itself very well for planting. You can plant or seed the plants of your choice and watch them sprout to look like Groot's hair.
How to grow plants in a Groot planter?
Simply fill the space of the head with soil, plant your seeds or seedlings, water, and provide the right amount of sunlight for that specific type of plan. If your Groot planter doesn't have drainage holes, you can fill the bottom section of the planting space with small rocks, and then place a smaller container above them, where you'll do the actual planting. This setup can help drain out the excess amounts of water, keeping the roots dry and healthy.
Where is Groot from?
Back to the character of Groot.
Groot is a an alien being from planet X. His name is also the name of his species, also known as Groot. That species is also known as "floral Colussus" by some denizens of the fictional Marvel universe.
Is Groot a boy or a girl?
Most fans consider Groot to be male, based on his appearance in adult form. Here, see for yourself -
Why can Groot only say "I am Groot"?
Groot is known for his phrase "I am Groot". During most of the movies, he utters only this combination, albeit using different intonations to convey his meaning. Some fans argued that Groot's voice box is made of wood, and so lacks the ability to utter more words. However, in the memorable scene where Groot protects his friends by creating a tree barrier around them, he utters the words "We are Groot".
To whom should you gift a Groot planter?
If you've never read the comic books or watched the Avengers movies, you may be wondering whom might appreciate this as a gift. Essentially, fans of the genre will be very familiar with Groot's character and will likely appreciate any form of a Groot planter. However, younger recipients, or those with more maternal inclinations, will probably prefer a baby Groot planter. They're just so much cuter!
When you think about it, a Groot planter just makes sense. The Flora Colossus that we've all come to know and love is a symbol of not only nature but of the cycles of birth and the capacity for nearly anything to flourish. These planters are incredibly beautiful, either as simplistic designs or more ornate and detailed creations, and will brighten up any outdoor or indoor space effortlessly.
