Soil-less succulent picture frames coming your way very soon!

Each contains sphagnum moss against a breathable backing, which soaks up water quickly and drains quickly; perfect for hardy desert plants that hate having their roots sit in water…i.e. succulents!

P.S. The backing I use for these is a durable, mildew-resistant, fast-draining felt made entirely from recycled plastic bottles! 


Cryptanthus (“Earth Star”) Bromeliads

These stemless, terrestrial bromeliads are endemic to South America and are found growing in soil (unlike other bromeliads) on Brazil’s rain forest floors. They grow well in low to moderate indirect sunlight, as they are provided with diffuse sunlight coming through the rain forest canopy in their natural habitat. Avoid direct sunlight.

Earth Star bromeliads enjoy moist and humid environments. Keep soil relatively moist and keep plant in a humid room (kitchens and bathrooms tend to be more humid), keep in a room with other plants, run a humidifier nearby, or simply mist with a spray bottle.

{These are available on Etsy.}
