Oasis in the Desert
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
WHAT TO EXPECT
We'll make your Oasis in the Desert to order, choosing from our diverse collection of Rhipsalis and Hatiora species. The cholla measures about 3-4"W x 3-4"H. No two pieces are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality - expect this natural variation from the photos.
