Regular house plants are boring. Now, a house plant shaped like an animal or a dude's beard? That's revolutionary.

Love for the Chia brand stretches far and wide. In its 30-year history, Chia has released 14 different "waves" of Chia Pets, and, as of 2007, the company was selling half a million Chias yearly. In this amazing multi-decade journey from Chia Mr. T to Chia Sponge Bob, the Chia company has put many mini-topiaries in dorm room windows and implanted the "Ch-Ch-Chia" line into innumerable potential customers' heads. Here's hoping for the continued success of these quirky plant products.
