Pikaplant Jar is a living houseplant that you never need to water. This Calathea concinna plant is sealed airtight inside an upside down Mason jar, creating an ecosphere. This means all of the water inside a Jar stays inside, and the plant continuously recycles the water it has.All you have to do is give this self-sustaining plant a nice place to live and enjoy the view.
Calathea concinna is a tropical plant indigenous to South America. Our cultivars are bred in The Netherlands according to the highest standards for sustainable horticulture. They are grown by Jogrow, a world-class indoor plant grower certified with the MPS-A certification.
For hundreds of years the strikingly striped leaves of these plants have been used for the construction of various useful items. In nature the leaves of the Calathea plants can grow quite large, making them perfect to wrap fish or rice. They were even used to make quivers to hold the arrows of South American natives.
Pikaplant Jar is our interpretation of a bottle garden or closed terrarium. It mimics natural high humidity biotopes. We hand pick each seedling, and before we enclose the plants in a Jar we give them the resources they need to create a well-balanced ecosystem.
The lifespan of individual plants will vary, but we offer a 3-month guarantee on every Jar ecosphere. Our original Pikaplant Jar Calathea concinna prototypes have been flourishing happily for over 12 months without opening.
