After the appearance of the first images in recent days, LEGO has officially presented the two new products of the LEGO Botanical Collection. We finally have high resolution images of the LEGO Orchid (10311) and LEGO Succulents (10309) for you.

Both sets are now also listed on the LEGO Online Store, which was introduced an hour earlier via a LEGO press release. Both sets will appear (just in time for Mother’s Day) from 1. May 2022 and come at an MSRP of €49.99 sold. While the Orchid should be available in stores everywhere, the Succulent LEGO set is sold exclusively through LEGO and a few select retailers. As a result, the orchid can now be pre-ordered from LEGO, but the succulent cannot.

We feature both sets including official photos in detail here.

As the first new release, the LEGO Succulents hit the market as a partially exclusive set. It is not yet known which retailer will sell the set alongside LEGO.

Succulents consist of 771 pieces and let me up to three people build, so the instructions are in place a shared construction experience designed. A total of nine small succulents are installed here and can be put together to form a larger arrangement. The set will be priced at 49.99 euro of 1. May 2022 be available.

Small “pots” of succulents are each 6 × 6 nodules, with plants usually sticking out beyond that. The frames of the pots can be connected using Technic cross axes and thus arranged differently, but the small plants can of course also be displayed individually.

The LEGO Orchid should prove to be a particularly suitable gift for Mother’s Day, which approaches on May 8. Since 608 pieces the existing factory is also coming for €49.99 commercially available, but unlike succulents, they can be sold by any dealer and will therefore likely come on sale more quickly at a reduced price.

The LEGO Orchid stands 39cm tall overall and includes some exciting new pieces, which we’ll discuss briefly later in the article. One of the highlights is certainly the white head of Demogorgon, which here is printed like a flower.

New parts in Orchid and Succulent

As with previous Botanical Collection innovations, the two new sets are a source of new pieces. We have selected the most interesting innovations for you:

New pieces in Succulents:

A new element appears in Succulents. An unusual 2×2 slope, which is used here in Bright Light Orange. This piece will probably also be used in future sets, as the new injection mold would not have been needed for this flower:

All LEGO Knights friends can rejoice in the return of the Forestmen green hats. The Robin Hood cap is installed here again in classic green after a long time and could open the doors that are also included in the LEGO 10305 anniversary castle foresters.

We have attached a tabular overview of all the LEGO Plant sets that have appeared in the Subtopic World so far. Currently, the LEGO Botanical Collection comes in five sets.

The LEGO Orchid and LEGO Succulents were also recently available as LEGO Ideas designs – both at a time when both of these official sets were likely already in development. While the succulent cancellation has already taken place, the orchid cancellation is still pending, but sealed as of today at the latest.
