Pikaplant Jar is a living houseplant that you never need to water. The plants are sealed airtight inside an upside-down Mason jar. All of the water inside a Jar's ecosphere remains inside, and the plants continuously recycle the water and air that they have. All you have to do is give your self-sustaining plants a nice place to live, and enjoy the view.
Pikaplant Jar is our interpretation of a bottle garden or closed terrarium. We select each seedling by hand, 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. The original Pikaplant Jar prototypes have been flourishing happily for over 60 months without opening.
Calathea is a tropical plant indigenous to the tropics of South America. 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 tribes.
Calathea concinna is also known as the “Prayer Plant” and is a soothing presence in any home.
Our cultivars are grown in the Netherlands according to the MPS-GAP and Global GAP certificates for sustainable horticulture.
