Originally sprouting with 10280 Flower Bouquet and 10281 Bonsai Tree in January 2021, the Creator Expert subtheme has since expanded to include 10289 Bird of Paradise last summer, and now 10309 Succulents and 10311 Orchid, both of which are available to pre-order from today and will launch on May 1.
If any or all of the initial three sets have given you budding green (plastic) fingers, and you’re keen to grow your own collection with those two new additions, you’ll probably want to see how well they all display together. And while each of the sets brings something completely different to the table, you’ll be delighted to learn that they all look pretty perfect when arranged together on a shelf.
From left to right in the above image are 10281 Bonsai Tree, 10311 Orchid, 10280 Flower Bouquet, 10309 Succulents and 10289 Bird of Paradise. You’ll need to supply your own vase for the bouquet, but the rest all come with their own buildable pots or bases, including 10311 Orchid – which designer Michael Psiaki says proved especially challenging to come up with.
You’ll be able to recreate this display from next month, when 10309 Succulents and 10311 Orchid land on shelves. Check out more images of each of those sets in isolation by clicking here, or head over to LEGO.com to pre-order your copies (where available). Both new Botanical Collection models will retail for £44.99 / $49.99 / €49.99 apiece.
