Oasis in the Desert
To create these dynamic pieces, we've tucked our favorite drought-tolerant epiphytes into the pockets of dried cholla wood, making a "potted" plant entirely from natural materials. Cholla is a desert cactus native the Southwestern US that leaves behind a unique, porous wood.
Rhipsalis and Hatiora are genera of epiphytic jungle cacti, tolerant of lower light and more moisture than their desert counterparts. Hoya are succulent, epiphytic vines that scramble around the rainforest canopy, sometimes called Wax Vines in reference to their amazing blooms.
Our Oasis in the Desert: vibrant free-standing mounts that mimic the way these plants grow in the crooks of tree branches in their natural habitats. 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 water until fully saturated (about once per week)
• Considerations: The foliage will start pucker when the plant is ready for a drink. Use room temperature water.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We'll make your Oasis in the Desert to order. 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.
