AVAILABLE FOR IN-STORE PICKUP ONLY. A cultivated plant with no native habitat, this ornamental cactus cultivar was created in the seventies in Japan by accident by Mr. Onzuka. It has since been bred and disseminated for its beautifully speckled epidermis and fuzzy white markings. The most unique and prized of the myriostigmas, the Onzuka cultivar is more susceptible to sunburn and cracking due to its lack of coloration and hard epidermis. As a result, it is important to provide bright light that is not too intense, to water sparingly, and to minimize ambient humidity especially during winter. No known toxicity to cats and dogs, but still keep out of reach.

Sewn from soft but sturdy Martexin waxed canvas fabric, these tiny plant pouches make perfect pants for the most petite of your plants. Simply slide in a pre-potted baby plant and remove when it is time to water. A plant may be potted directly into the pouch, but note that waxed canvas does not drain. Committed to wandering across the country, maker Molly Miller of Road, Dirt, and Pie lives and works out of her cargo van off-grid in order to live a more intentional life. She encourages you to make your own own magic in her canvas pots.

Each waxed canvas pot is 2” x 2” x 2”

Efficiency is beauty at Heartburst Houseplant where owner Claire Schauble experiments with turning her home into a liveable nursery. She seeks to shorten the supply chain on plants by locally growing florals and houseplants indoors. Every sunlit spot in her home has been repurposed into small-scale farming space. Existing mother plants are trimmed, divided, pollinated, or otherwise propagated to produce new plants. The plant offspring is then individually maintained into fighting health for another plant lover to enjoy. Beautiful, tenderly loved plants make Claire’s heart feel like it's going to burst - in the best way. She takes distinct pleasure in sharing her appreciation for the natural world with every small plant she manicures and pots to perfection. In a zero waste initiative, Claire dries and sells the flowers she grows organically and incorporates them into sensory soaps as well. Dried flowers also serve as an environmentally friendly alternative or additive to conventional dyes, skincare, remedies, decor, and garnishes. 50% of sales from the Heartburst Houseplant Pop-Up will go to Outdoor Afro. Outdoor Afro is the nation’s leading, cutting edge network that celebrates and inspires Black connections and leadership in nature.
