What a perfect gift for your homes or your loved ones.
You can place this healing botanical art on a shallow bowl with rocks, in a bright indirect light. You submerge the ball part in a bowl of water once a week for 10-15 minutes then squeeze the ball gently to get rid of the excess water. Only water when it feels light or dry, do not over water. You can mist the moss part lightly once a week in between soaking. You can keep cutting it back & try to put cuttings in water to grow new roots. You can transfer it to a pot once you see roots coming out of the ball part. Please DO NOT plant it in your garden because it is not native to PNW & doesn’t serve our habitat. It also won’t survive the weather outside.
