Oasis in the Desert

$ 17.00

To create these dynamic pieces, we've tucked our favorite Rhipsalis and Hatiora species into the pockets of dried Cholla wood, making a "potted" plant entirely from natural materials. Rhipsalis and Hatiora are genera of epiphytic jungle cacti, tolerant of lower light and more moisture than their desert counterparts. Cholla, on the other-hand, is a desert cactus native the Southwestern US that leaves behind a unique hollow, porous wood. Combined, the result is our Oasis in the Desert: vibrant free-standing mounts that mimic the way jungle cacti grow in the crooks of tree branches in their natural habitats. Since Jungle Cacti are so easy to care for, these versatile pieces can add a pop of green to just about anywhere in your space. 


• Light: Low to bright indirect or dappled light
• Water: When moss at base of plant is dry, soak in a sink or basin of room temperature water until fully saturated.
• Considerations: Take care not to over-water; the foliage will pucker slightly when the plant is ready for a drink


We'll make your Oasis in the Desert to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Rhipsalis and Hatiora species. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos, and feel free to include any preferences with your order.

Small: ~2-3" tall Cholla piece
Medium: ~3.5-4.5" tall Cholla piece
Large: ~5-6" tall Cholla piece

Our Plant Craft pieces include detailed care instructions. We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

So beautiful! Better than I was expecting!

I know I read the description but I did not realize how big they actually would be! I bought a medium and large and they totally exceeded my expectations. I love them! Will definitely be purchasing more as gifts!!
