    Ok. no .bmp files :rolleyes:

    so we have:

    3 votes Cactus
    1 vote Pansies/Tulips
    1 vote 'solar plant'

    what the hell is a solar plant any way?

    Not much progress today. :waah: just trying to figure out how everything will fit and whether or not i need to line the inside of the pot with tin/tin foil/both.
    :idea:

    Yah...

    also i'm trying to salvage pieces of the casing from my old box. does anyone know how to take rivets apart?

    i think that's it

    Peace Out

    Your avatar wont work because you need a certain amount of posts to set an avatar for yourself. As for rivets, you'll need to drill them out.

    Good luck, this should be a fun project :)

    what the hell is with all the spamming. Plz im trying to peacfully read this very interesting idea and now i have to listen to your blabbing on about bloody avatars. He is just trying to get some ideas, not spam. I say go for cactus. If you do your going to have to plan very well, as you dont want to water the plant and mobo. What you could do is find some of these small cactus plants and make a mini cactus garden. My mom has a bunch in a bowel.

    I also vote cactus.

    Also...rivets are a %&Q$&#()!(#*(@!^$#&!*@& to drill out. Make sure you have plenty of batteries (or a corded drill)!

    whats so hard about drilling out rivets? i drilled about 7 of them out yesterday and it went easy. might have been the super power drill i was using, i dunno.

    great idea tho, this flower pot. i will be watching this.

    for the cactus, you could cut a circle of something, like acrylic/plexiglass maybe, and seal it with a silicone sealant to prevent water sneaking through.

    good luck and :rock:

    I love the idea - pc in a flowerpot. Can't want to see, how this project evolves. Also it just gave me a similar modding idea... :idea:

    Maybe I missed, but what is the PS doing? IF you simply jump the green wire to black, does it power up?

    As far as what plant to use, may I suggest an aloe vera plant? pic
    Or maybe... :idea: I am not sure how WC works, but could you use bamboo and use the water as a dual source: A resivor for the pc and food for the plant? I guess you could at least go for the illusion of that.

    go with the catus that would be so cool, cause then if people try to take it they will get "prickled" and what you can do is have it like a plant growes in one pot that fits exaclty into the bigone and looks like just one pot, cause then you can remove it any time you want and not have to worry bout water getting in your system
