We’ll have to conduct some studies to be sure, but we suspect that the cuter a planter is, the better the plants inside of it will grow. These awesomely adorable animal-shaped planters are the perfect subjects for our tests. They’re the handmade creations of São Paulo, Brazil-based sculptor and ceramics artist Priscilla Ramos of Cumbuca Chic. What little plant wouldn’t want to grow out of an anteater, capybara or a fox? If your theory is correct then seeds probably sprout overnight when planted in a miniature pot with an even tinier bird perched on the side.

This one reminds us of the asteroid that was home to The Little Prince:

Ramos sells her planters, vases, and jewelry via her website and the Cumbuca Chic Etsy shop. Check out the Cumbuca Chic Facebook page for more photos of her kawaii creations, including lots of behind-the-scenes peeks at new works in process:
