Very interesting. Especially how you can "grow" the trees and they age how you would expect them to over time. Also how you can prune the branches.

It also looks like you can get the trees to react to their surroundings so if you grow a tree near a wall it will inhibit the trees growth.

The price could be a bit lower though...130euros.... :-\

Judging by the images and clips on their site, The Grove does not seem overpriced, certainly not compared to other plant generators. I can't say anything about the functionality; I never tried it.

Before you decide, make sure you check the pricing on the twigs.  I'm not sure if or how you can add leaves without the pay for twigs.

The twigs cost €9,60 each, so that amount may quickly increase with each new purchase. Fortunately, it is also possible to make them yourself; there is even a Simple Twig Starter Pack.

However, this is important:
Q: Does the Grove grow palm trees, bamboo and regular plants?
No. These plants are very regularly repeating structures. The Grove focuses on trees that evolve through branching.
