For my GTS post this week I thought I'd introduce our terracotta ram "Roger". We originally bought this to grow Mustard and Cress in, the idea being that you fill it with water and sprinkle the seeds in the grooves and you have a hairy green ram. Unfortunately it didn't quite work for us, and since then we'd tried a few different things to grow in it. Finally we've found that succulents look happy growing in there. He looks quite happy with his new hair do don't you think?

Ha ha... Nice hair decorations! I'm thinking of taking on that as a new hair fashion :-)

He looks like something we call a Chia Pet!
You spread cress or grass seeds on it and Ta Da!

Roger looks good with his new hair style

I think Roger's 'hair' is longer than mine at the moment (had mine cut today into a very 'wash'n'wear' style), and he looks so cute. I've not seen a pot like him before. Perhaps it's too hot in Brisbane to use him as originally intended?

Hens and Chicks for horns - or horn adornments. Great idea and I think Roger looks fabulous!

Fantastic terracotta ram Roy. I've never seen them before but he looks fantastic. Is this an original? Or, can you buy them in a store somewhere?

I love it.

We've had it for years Stuart, I really don't know if you can still buy them.
