Here is the description for the #10311 LEGO Orchid: Recreate the show-stopping blooms of a flowering orchid with this blossoming build. This new set features six large flowers and two newly opened flowers that can be customized 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 complete this beautiful display of pink and white blooms which can be customized 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.”
And here is the description of the #10309 LEGO Succulents: 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 instructions 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.”
