These Microgardens feature wooden boards with an aerophyte, Melanocrater, embedded in a hole in the centre. Simple to mount on the wall and simple to look after, they are the perfect addition to your home or office.

Bought two of these, both plants were dead when I had received them and the whole product was just not neat and to my liking.. BUT received wonderful customer service so definitely made up for it!

I bought 2 other air plants that survived the courier trip but this one died. Maybe best purchasing this one at a shop that stocks them

Beautiful gift. Although price is high as these air plants grow like crazy in my garden. The idea is very clever if you don't have time to make it yourself.

Bought 2 for myself - then got another 4 for secretaries day. Cant wait for them to flower. Amazing gift idea and not too pricy

I've always wanted an air plant and this is so beautifully mounted in the block, making it so easy to hang. It looks awesome and I often find myself staring at it. My favourite gift to myself in a while <3
