Take care of Kaki® Design and Kaki® Necklaces

 

Your precious Kaki® succulent lives in a transparent polyester jar with four tiny holes in the bottom.

Take care of her with love and dedication!

Watch it grow and, if in optimal environmental conditions, flourish and even reproduce.

Taking care of her is very simple: it is sufficient to place the jar in a few millimeters of water for ten minutes, once a month.

We recommend using demineralised water. Natural bottled mineral water is also fine (preferably with a low fixed residue) or let the water from the water supply settle for at least 24 hours.

To carry out this important operation it is not necessary to remove the small plant from the capsule or from the jars supplied. However, it is recommended to remove it if it has a wooden support that would risk rotting, as in the case of "Bonsai Original" products.

We recommend storing the bonsai inside the home in a bright area (not in direct sunlight), away from sources of heat or cold. Air fresheners can compromise plant health. 

The substrate is composed of cork, silicon and / or quartz sand: this composition was chosen to promote drainage (avoiding stagnation of water, harmful to small "plump" ones ..) and at the same time guaranteeing an environment resistant to humidity .

From the date of delivery, wet the plant after 30 days. Remember to repeat this operation regularly and on a monthly basis.

Durability is the main feature of our plants.
You can also decide to transplant them using the common earth for cactaceae as a substrate. It is advisable to carry out this delicate operation with the help of tweezers, in order not to damage or break the slender roots.

Important: if not worn, do not store Kaki® Capsule Necklace in a drawer. Place the capsule vertically in a bright environment. Avoid wearing the necklace during shower, swimming pool, sea etc.

Take care of Marimino® 

  • uncork the jewel and remove the water by gently shaking the ampoule or, better still, with the aid of a pipette as shown in the video above;
  • replace with natural mineral water (or decanted at least 24 hours);
  • repeat the operation every two weeks (keep as reference the day of delivery if purchased online or ask the retailer);
  • during the summer, change the water more frequently, ideally every 7 days;
  • use a pipette to fill the ampoule, in this way you will avoid the risk of damaging the little Marimo with a too intense flow of water;
  • it is not necessary remove it from the ampoule during the water change;
  • do not keep it in direct sunlight for prolonged periods;
  • do not keep it near heat sources, fears intense heat;
  • be careful not to forget the jewel in the car, above all during the hot summer days or in the middle of winter;
  • do not leave the jewel closed in a drawer or in a jewelry box;
  • if you forget to change the water regularly, or the jewel remains close to heat sources for prolonged periods, when opening the cap it is possible to smell sulfur: change the water and leave the jewel open for a few hours.

 

Our Marimo (Aegagropila l.) they are not taken from the natural environment - which is left intact - and are then grown from an organic substrate. It is therefore normal to notice a thin line or some white point in the alga from time to time.

How is my Marimo?
It is round and bright green: it is in excellent health!

Instead if:
• It has become too whitish, it is probably receiving too much light.
• It has a strange patina or its shape seems unusual to you, it could be other weeds growing around it. These algae suffocate it, so it is best to carefully remove them with tweezers.
• It is turning brown, it may be a sign that it is time to clean it. Rinse it and squeeze it gently into a basin or container with decanted water. Do not use running water (generally contains chlorine, which is harmful to the algae). While for the Marimino version the jet would flake off the exiled filaments.
• It turns black or opens, it is because it is starting to deteriorate from the inside and sadly it is time to change it.

Take care of Alga Palla

The Marimo to live long and happy need for a few tricks. We suggest proceeding with the following operations every two weeks during the winter and every ten days on the hottest summer days:

  • fill its container with water decanted at least 24h or natural mineral. Do not use mains water or sparkling water;
  • rinse it under running water is squeeze it gently to remove any impurities before putting it back in its container;
  • do not expose it to direct sunlight and do not place it near artificial heat sources;
  • choose a bright environment so that it can carry out chlorophyll photosynthesis, thanks to which you can watch it float and spin full of oxygen bubbles!
  • it does not fear the dark as it is used to living in the lake bottoms;
  • do not use chemical detergents to clean the container;
  • we suggest to cover the jar with a cap;
  • thoroughly dry the cap and neck of the glass after each water change. If the cap exerts too much pressure, do not pull but pry into the cavity with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver;
  • if you want to add stones to the bottom of the vase, use non-toxic ones. Be careful when inserting it as the stones could damage the vase. We are not responsible for any damage caused.

Take care of Aria

  • Completely immerse the plant in fresh water every ten days for a few seconds. Alternatively, spray water every four days with the help of a small atomizer
  • Do not expose to direct light, prefers an illuminated area far from heat sources or air conditioners

Take care of Desert™ Stella

Place the plant on the terracotta saucer provided. Prefer a dry environment (living room, office, bedroom ...) and avoid placing it near windows or other known domestic thermal bridges.

Humidity or sudden changes in temperature could activate it too often and cause stress.

What is the correct method to “awaken” Stella?
(we recommend carrying out this procedure no more than once a
month)

1) pour water (preferably warm) into the small basin of the
terracotta support supplied. To speed up the process
spray (a little) warm water on the foliage;

2) place Stella inside the terracotta support and observe it
as it absorbs water and begins to open its leaves (this process
it can last 60/90 ');

3) add lukewarm water again (see point 1) and let Stella
can show itself in all its beauty! (the process can take too
24h and its leaves can even turn green!)

4) after 24h we suggest to dry the terracotta saucer in
to prevent excess water from stagnating and generating mold
(lethal for the plant);

5) wait for Stella to close!

Wait about a month beforehand
repeat the procedure. 

NB Stella must be kept indoors or in the office. Not on the terrace or garden!

Take care of Kakidama

We suggest you spray Kakidama ™ once a month (just spray some water, preferably decanted) with the help of a classic gardening spray. Alternatively, quickly immerse the sphere alone in water.

Warning: the plant species we have selected for our collection MUST NOT BE IMMERSED as reported on some blogs or online tutorials.

It is recommended to wet as soon as the kokedama is received or in any case within a few days of delivery of the order.
