Chia Pet has officially released a grow-your-own Willie Nelson novelty planter. The US company has been selling figurine-style planters since the ’80s and went so far as to add this country singer to their wide range of familiar faces. Other faces include former US presidents, movie characters, and emojis.
Chia Pet, specifically for Nelson’s, invites the grower to grow out chia seeds in the grooved sections of the planter, which should result in Nelson’s signature long hair.

One fan, Margo Price, posted about her Willie Nelson Chia Pet last month, saying, “Love mine so much! The only thing that would make it better is if it came with cannabis seeds.”
Aside from this brilliantly inspired Chia Pet, Nelson has been working quite hard, releasing two albums back in 2021, That’s Life (a tribute to the music of Frank Sinatra) and The Willie Nelson Family. The latter included an incredible rendition of George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass” which was recorded by Nelson along with his sons, Lukas and Micah, his daughters Paula and Amy, and his sister Bobbie Nelson.
“Working with family, creating music, is pure bliss,” Lukas said about the record. “What a gift that we were all able to come together and celebrate the power of music during these troubled times. The spirit in this music is strong. I am grateful to have been a part of this experience.”
