LEGO reveals next two Botanical Collection sets: 10309 Succulents and 10311 Orchid [News]

LEGO’s series of life-size recreations of plants and flowers has proven tremendously popular since their launch at the start of 2021 with the Flower Bouquet and Bonsai Tree, and now the company is expanding it even more with two new sets. The 608-piece 10311 Orchid (US $49.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99) brings a new flower to the series; much like last year’s 10289 Bird of Paradise it features the full plant in a pot, rather than just flower cuttings. Meanwhile, the 771-piece 10309 Succulents (US $49.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99) takes the series in a new direction with a variety of small colorful plants in pots that can be rearranged. LEGO is pitching the sets as Mother’s Day gifts, so both sets are available to pre-order starting today, and are slated to launch May 1.

New LEGO® Botanical Collection sets provide the perfect perennial project for adults looking to relax and unwind

Billund, EMBARGOED until Thursday 14th April 2022 at 10:00 CET: The LEGO Group announces two stunning new additions to its Botanical Collection; a LEGO® Orchid and a LEGO® Succulents selection.

Perfect as a thoughtful gift for a plant lover or for adding the finishing interior design touches, the new sets are designed to provide an immersive building experience for adults that lets creativity bloom.

With 73% adults saying they often research new ways to destress¹ and over 72% saying play helps them relax², the new sets could provide a fabulous floral project for those looking to get creative while finding moments of mindfulness in their day.

LEGO Orchid (10311)
Recreate the showstopping blooms of a flowering orchid with this blossoming build. This new set features six large flowers and two newly opened flowers which can be customised to create a flawless arrangement for any space, without the worry about how often to water it.

A LEGO built blue fluted vase and bark mix made from LEGO elements completes this beautiful display of pink and white blooms which can be customised and rebuilt time and time again as the builder finds a moment of balance and harmony for them and their décor.

“The design of this set was inspired by a real Orchid we had in the office throughout the design process, so we could see how the flower changed through the seasons,” said Michael Psiaki, Lead Designer at the LEGO Group.” A challenge with this set was creating a cylindrical pot from LEGO elements that would be fun to build but also beautiful to look at.”

LEGO Succulents (10309)
The LEGO Succulents set is the gift that keeps on giving with nine individual succulents in their own containers. The separate plants and cacti can be built and connected together artistically or displayed individually and rearranged depending on the season or the décor with this ultimate low-maintenance display.

The Succulents set comes with three separate building instruction so friends and family can unwind together as they enjoy building the flora. “They say having succulents in a room helps you focus, and we hope this set gives the same feeling,” says Anderson Ward Grubb, Senior Designer at The LEGO Group. “We wanted to create a set that offers a relaxing and mindful building experience to help adults switch off from their busy lives and to most importantly re-focus on something they enjoy.”

The LEGO Orchid (10311) set and the LEGO Succulents set (10309) will be available to pre-order from April 14th from and selected retailers at ($49.99). They will be launched officially on May 1st, just in time for Mother’s Day in many markets.

    Tried to order the succulents at 12:04am on May 1st and they were listed as “backorder”.
    Maybe that’s unique to Australia, but it’s not a good sign.
