Jar Calathea Elliptica
Pikaplant Jar is a living houseplant that you never need to water. These Calathea elliptica plants are sealed airtight inside an upside down Mason jar. This means all of the water inside the ecosphere stays inside, and the plants continuously recycle the water they have. All you have to do is give your self-sustaining plants a nice place to live, and enjoy the view.
Calathea is a tropical plant indigenous to the Amazon rainforest. Our cultivars are grown in the Netherlands according to the MPS-GAP and Global GAP certificates for sustainable horticulture. We love the striped leaves of the Calathea elliptica species in white and green.
Pikaplant Jar is our interpretation of a bottle garden or closed terrarium. 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. The original Pikaplant Jar Calathea prototypes have been flourishing happily for over 12 months without opening.
