These are incredible additions to one of LEGO’s most remarkable, adult-focused themes. Both the Orchid and Succulents are perfect as a thoughtful gift for plant lovers or for adding a special touch of class to your home.
Let’s take a closer look at each set
10309 Succulents – 771 pieces
Dimensions: Measures over 5 in. (13 cm) high, 6.5 in. (17 cm) wide and 6.5 in. (17 cm) deep when complete.
The succulents were designed by Anderson Ward Grubb, who also brought the Flower Bouquet and Modular Boutique Hotel to life.
The LEGO Succulents set is the gift that keeps on giving with nine individual succulents in their own containers. The separate plants and cacti can be built and connected together artistically or displayed individually and rearranged depending on the season or the décor with this ultimate low-maintenance display.
The Succulents set comes with three separate building instruction so friends and family can unwind together as they enjoy building the flora. “They say having succulents in a room helps you focus, and we hope this set gives the same feeling,” says Anderson Ward Grubb, Senior Designer at The LEGO Group. “We wanted to create a set that offers a relaxing and mindful building experience to help adults switch off from their busy lives and to most importantly re-focus on something they enjoy.”
You get several succulents and cacti in little black pots which have a modular design, allowing you either display them individually, or introduce your own personal touch and arrange them as you wish.
Here are some inspiration Lifestyle photos from LEGO showing this feature in action.
When LEGO launched the Botanical collection, I was hopeful that they’d do Succulents, so these make me so incredibly happy as I think they look wonderful.
Designer Anderson Ward Grubb has done a masterful job, with some incredibly cool part usage, and plenty of re-coloured elements that will be sure to delight LEGO Element and part aficionados.

10311 Orchid – 608 pieces
Dimensions: Measures over 15 in. (39 cm) high, 11.5 in. (30 cm) wide, 9.5 in. (24 cm) deep when complete.
The LEGO Orchid was designed by LEGO Design Master Mike Psiaki, and is quite simply, one of the most beautiful models ever to come out from The LEGO Group.
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 customised 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 customised and rebuilt time and time again as the builder finds a moment of balance and harmony for them and their décor.
“The design of this set was inspired by a real Orchid we had in the office throughout the design process, so we could see how the flower changed through the seasons,” said Michael Psiaki, Lead Designer at the LEGO Group.” A challenge with this set was creating a cylindrical pot from LEGO elements that would be fun to build but also beautiful to look at.”
This is a considered, and gorgeous take on a very organic form in the most effortless way possible.
It’ll make you look twice, as this looks nothing like LEGO, with the clever use of curved and rounded elements, a bright and light colour palette, all for under US$50 – which is incredible.
There are some surprising and genius use of parts with the use of Demogorgon heads printed to represent small Orchid buds – there are 2 in the set!
Like the Bird of Paradise, the Orchid comes in a gorgeous sand blue vase, making it an impressive model, with large dark green leaves, erupting out of the base.
Like the Bonsai, and Bird of Paradise, there is also potting mix filled into the pot, and some Orchid roots emerging, trying to sneak and find their way out from the pot.
Looking at the lifestyle photos supplied, LEGO are clearly hoping that fans gift this set to their mums (especially with Mother’s Day coming up!), or share the build with a partner.
LEGO have another smash hit on their hands with the Orchid and Succulents, and if you’ve been a fan of the Botanical Collection, you will absolutely be thrilled with these 2.
As you can see them lined up above alongside the LEGO Bonsai Tree, Flower Bouquet and Bird of Paradise, they go so well together, especially for fans of indoor plants, or LEGO sets that just have that elevated, and considered look.
I can’t wait to share my reviews of both these sets, but it’s safe to say that you’ll want to get your hands on these, so I highly recommend pre-ordering on LEGO.com to avoid missing out. These are going to be incredibly popular, especially since they’re so well-priced.
A huge surprise is that LEGO maintained the sub-US$50 pricing for both these sets, making them the same price as the Bonsai, which is such a smart move, as it keeps both these sets accessible, and also puts them in the perfect price range for gifting to others.
LEGO have another smash hit on their hands with these two additions to the Botanical Collection, and I cannot wait for you to get your hands on them.
10311 Orchid and 10309 Succulents will be released on 1 May 2022, and is available for pre-order now on LEGO.com.

Gorgeous work, the only thing that bugs me are the small orchid flowers. Phalaenopsis orchids (the most common genus in cultivation, and what’s modeled here) don’t grow flowers from small to large like this, the flowers come from buds and when they open up they are already full size. The artist should have modeled the buds instead.
Oh yes! I’m a big fan of real-life cacti / succulents so the Lego sets are a no-brainer. Good to see the theme continuing, and I hope we get more in the future.
Yes, and yes. Every one of these Botanicals has been a hit. Both are available for pre-order on the Australian site (although it has Succulents shipping from 6 May, which isn’t early enough for Mothers Day).
My only dilemma is whether to wait for the April/May freebie. Jay, do you happen to know when this becomes available in Australia?
You can only pre order the orchid in the UK for some reason, not the succulent which just says ‘coming soon’. Unfortunately this means my basket is a few £ short of free delivery so will have to wait until May 1st.
