Flip Flap: the funky solar-powered plant that never dies
I need this for my kitchen window sill. Even though there is a water source within a foot - any plant that is in the kitchen dies. Flip Flap will make my kitchen green - FOREVER!!!
"There's nothing like a bit of greenery to brighten up your desk, the only problem of course is that all that green-fingered enthusiasm tends to wane after a few days. Sadly, that means you're left with a dying plant on your desk, which somehow doesn't have quite the same Zen-like appeal."
Update: Just found a link to a killer review here

Just this Jan 09, have seen them in downtown Beijing sold by street/sidewalk vendors for as cheap as 20 Yaun (about $3.80 USD). I love them but the US Price is really really high. Several on your desk works really nice actually. Of the 3 I have, one works perfect the 2nd is slow and the 3rd barely moves but they could be oldish and the solar cell getting tired.
I bought two of these in the Hong Kong airport just before leaving, in order to use up my extra HK dollars. Wow, they are the best! I keep one on my windowsill in my bedroom. Cute, cute, cute!
