& # 39; Welcome to the home office little guy! & # 39; Shoppers stunned by the $ 15 & # 39; pet rock & # 39; for sale in the new Aldi catalog
- Aldi Australia has recently added an unusual pot plant to the collection of household items
- The plant does not need a pot, but instead grows from a large volcanic rock
- The $ 14.99 shrub is compared to pet rock crossed with a pot plant
Aldi Australia has made serious progress in the stylish and affordable market for household items.
However, the latest offer from the discount retailer of a rock crossed with a pot plant has confused customers.
The home accessory, priced at $ 14.99, went on sale this week as part of Aldi's weekly Special Buys.
The & # 39; desk rocks & # 39; come with a piece of imported Indonesian volcanic rock with a small shrub that sits in a gray shallow bowl filled with pebbles.
This week Aldi is offering a houseplant that grows from a volcanic rock as part of the Special Buys
& # 39; A hardy, low-maintenance houseplant that grows on a piece of organic rock. No potting mix required & # 39 ;, reads information about the unusual plant.
The unconventional household items item has distributed shoppers; some say they love it, while others are not so sure.
One person recently shared a photo of the unique pot plant on his Instagram page and revealed that it was proudly on his desk.
& # 39; Welcome to the home office little guy! & # 39; They endorsed the message with the addition: & # 39; I think I need a name for it. Suggestions? & # 39;

Others on Facebook said that although they appreciated the quirky design, the plant was not the one they wanted to add to their collection.
& # 39; This is the ugliest thing I've seen from Aldi, & # 39; someone said.
While another said: & # 39; Oh look … a plant without a pot but just as expensive. & # 39;
A third said: & # 39; A pet rock and a plant. Bargain! & # 39;
A few commentators said they had bought the plant when they were last on sale and that they thought they were hardy.
The houseplants have distributed shoppers, some of whom say they loved them, and others said they have the & # 39; ugliest & # 39; were that they would see
& # 39; We bought one from the last time they were in the store. It has grown that way, & someone said.
& # 39; I have had one for two years and did not kill it & # 39 ;, said a second.
Some said that if the factory was sold more expensive somewhere, shoppers could expect to pay at least $ 100 more.
& # 39; Buy that at a bonsai store and add $ 100 to the price & # 39 ;, someone said.
Another added: & # 39; That's bonsai art there, roots above rock as they call it. Put a happy wrap around the rock over the roots, so that the moisture stays in it. & # 39;
