Forest In The Bottle
Forest In A Bottle” is a terrarium made out of a mixture of stone, compost soil, leca clay & plants to form a little forest.
There is an art and science to creating this mini eco-system. Place in indoor bright area , avoid direct sunlight.
Water plants every 3 months with water spray.
If soil appears dry with very few droplets forming on bottle surface, open it and water lightly.
Own a part of the forest with the beautiful handcrafted Forest Frame..
Pafcal is a special soilless sponge-like material derived mainly from organic plant material, and held together by a thin layer of polyurethane binder (the same stuﬀ on kitchen chopping-boards).
It provides a perfect balance of water and oxygen to the plant roots, something which soil struggles with when left alone in an indoor setting. Plant roots require good access to oxygen, especially in sheltered low-light areas, in order to keep the plant healthy.
