Pikaplant Jar is a living houseplant that you never need to water. These Clusia rosea plants are sealed airtight inside a glass bottle. All of the water inside a Jar stays inside, and the plants continuously recycle the water they have. They water themselves, so you don’t need to. Just set these self-sustaining plants in a nice spot in your home or work space and enjoy the view.
Clusia rosea is a tropical plant indigenous to the islands of the Caribbean. Our cultivars are bred in The Netherlands according to the highest standards for sustainable horticulture. We work with VDE, a world-class indoor plant grower that has earned the MPS-A certification.
In nature the Clusia rosea plant grows on rocks or other trees, where it sends out aerial roots that wrap around the host tree. These roots eventually thicken and can kill the host tree. The Clusia rosea in these terrariums can also produce these aerial roots. Don’t worry though, the glass of the Jar will protect any nearby houseplants from strangulation.
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 Clusia rosea prototypes have been flourishing happily for over 18 months without opening.
