Oasis in the Desert

$ 15.00
Size

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. 

Care is simple. Place the piece where it will receive low to bright indirect light, and water when the moss at base of plant is dry by soaking in the sink for about 5 minutes.

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

Includes details care instructions. Each piece is made to order and sold separately; natural variation in plant and Cholla appearance is to be expected.

Rango is Thriving in the Dessert

I ordered the oasis in the dessert in the ocatillo skeleton base. Now named Rango, he arrived a bit jet-lagged but is recovering very well and learning how to survive here. Although I suspect he misses the rainy Portland weather, he's just getting used to the Tucson dessert by occasionally dipping a drinking finger in Huck and Finn's gold fish bowl.

Perfect - now it needs 2 friends!

Arrived in good shape. Gave it an extra long soak and it was good to go! It looks happy, but may have to get it a couple friends

Oasis in the Desert

This is such a cool accent plant that is very easy to care for! It arrived looking very healthy and hasn’t had any issues yet. I’m again pleasantly surprised with the quality and uniqueness of my Pistil’s purchase. I’m definitely going to keep these in mind when looking for gifts!
