We do provide Additional care services for your purchased designs. Should the plants require replanting or replacement, kindly contact us and we will gladly turn your purchase into a renewed creation.

 

A small fee (from S$5.00 depending on the plants required) will be applied upon replacing your Qing plants. Email/text us when you require any assistance.

 

 

 

Mood Mosses

Mood Mosses are one of the easiest to care for. Many are fascinated with the various colours they possessed. However, most tend to underwater their moss. In Nature, mosses reside in humid, damp environments, like amongst the exposed roots of matured trees.

 

When Mood Mosses turn a light shade of green, it is an indication that they are slowly drying up. Not watering the moss will eventually turn them into a lovely shade of honey-green, a form of preserved moss. But when you start watering them again, they will spring back to life.

 

A general guide would be to drizzle them till the moss are sufficiently wet. They are happy to be over-watered occasionally, especially in drier, air-conditioned environments.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Succulents and Desert Plants

These fleshy, rounded plants reside in dry, desert environments. Water and rain could be scarce and limited, hence the water is stored in their leaves and body. Many would think they don't require as much water but that is not true. 

 

Depending on how much sun they are receiving, watering should be between every 2-3 weeks(more often when they are placed in sunny areas). An easy way to water them is to use a water sprout or syringe if they are planted in terrariums, and direct the water around the plant. About 2-3 tablespoonful of water would be sufficient, less if there is no drainage hole in the planting container.

 

When succulents start to grow leggy and long, it is an indicator that they are not receiving enough sunlight. Try changing their location to a brighter area, like a sunny window, or under bright office lighting occasionally.

 

Overtime, the leaves at the bottom will dry off and fall. It will be good to remove the dead leaves for an aesthetically cleaner look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bonsais

These evergreen miniature trees are a joy to keep and care for. Styling your own tree is both therapeutic and relaxing. Even though they are well suited to be kept indoors, the occasional sun will benefit the plant. Providing the plant with a couple of hours of morning sun, few times a week will keep your Bonsai in tip top shape.

 

Watering should be more often if they are kept in drier, air-conditioned environments. As the Bonsais are planted with mood mosses, they are a good indication of how much water the plant needs. Remember to drizzle over the entire moss to keep them green and moist.

 

To keep your Bonsai looking neat and tidy, it would be good to do some trimming of its leaves every few weeks. Use a pair of clean, sharp scissors, trim the top few leaves from every branch. Be your own stylist and groom your little Bonsai! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Air plants

The growing trend of keeping Air plants have been growing steadily in recent times. The relative ease of growing, and placing them practically anywhere interests people.

 

As they do not need soil to grow and receive moisture and food through the tiny hairs found on their leaves. Watering them can be tricky sometimes. A good way would be to mist them daily.

Do make sure to air them first before placing them back in the glass terrariums, as excessive moisture will cause them to grow mould, posing a danger to the plants.
