2022 Botanical Collection Announced

The LEGO® Group announced two more sets due on May 1. We previously discussed the Friends Space Academy set. Today, we learn of the 2022 Botanical Collection. These new sets join the ranks of the Bouquet, Bonsai Tree, and Bird of Paradise released in 2021. This year, we get the Orchid and Succulents. While I have not purchased the Bird of Paradise, I did build the other two. In fact, my wife and I liked them so much, they are still on display in the living room. It looks like this year’s collection will not disappoint either. Read on for specifics!

The Succulents set comes with three separate building instruction so friends and family can unwind together as they enjoy building the flora.

ORCHID

  • SET #: 10311
  • THEME: 18+ – Botanical Collection
  • COST: $69.99 CAD

  • BRICK-TO-FIG RATIO: N/A
  • PRESS RELEASE EXCERPT: 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 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 completes 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.

Personally, I am looking forward to those succulents. The little plants are cute. Additionally, I am curious how they look with Minifigures. I could be wrong, but I think the succulents will provide great build techniques for lush Minifigure vegetation. What do you think of the 2022 Botanical collection? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
