Our plants are sourced from ethical locations, grown by hand with love and treated as organic and natural as possible. We use neem and nematodes to fight natural pests and try to give you the healthiest plant baby possible.

  • Requires moist soil like most grasses.

  • Spacing: clumping, will grow in up to 3 feet wide. (Use a pole with a string to keep foliage off the ground. The foliage will turn brown if it lays on the ground). The foliage is what you want to preserve so you can cut it, dry it, and then burn it. It spreads by Rhizomes and may be separated twice a year. Suitable for outdoor or container planting.

These are living plants and to ensure they arrive alive, make sure to choose priority shipping. When you receive your plant, make sure to bring it in from extreme temperatures and follow recommendations for each plant type.  If your plant arrives dry, water immediately and place in a warm location with filtered light so it can adjust and not be shocked into it's new environment. 

*Although we source high-quality herbs and roots, these are not intended for ingestion. Use at your own risk. Many of our live plants or seeds to grow on your own are toxic to handle or ingest.
