Does Chia Obama Really Work?
The Chia Obama Handmade Decorative Planter claims to be a collector’s item. It is sculpted to resemble the bust of President Obama, and the seeds grow curly green grass hair. The self-proclaimed collector’s item comes in two colors. The “Happy” color is brown, while the “Determined” color is blue. The grass, the makers claim, will reach full growth within 1-2 weeks. Included is a drip tray, Chia seed packets for 3 plantings, and a planting and care instruction sheet. The dimensions are 6 x 5 x 4 inches, and it weighs 1.4 pounds. Reviews of customers found the Chia Obama Handmade Decorative Planter humorous. On the downside, the clay constantly sweats and loses water. Also, the grass needs to be watered hourly, or it will not grow. Because of these defects, one buyer said his Chia Obama ended up looking like Larry of the Three Stooges.
