Indoor Living Urn

By Spirit Pieces

The Indoor Living Urn®   provides families with a way to grow a beautiful living memory tree or houseplant indoors, or on a patio, within an attractive, proprietary urn holding the cremated remains of a loved one. The urn itself is made from sleek porcelain, comes in three colors, and measures approximately 9” high and 9” in diameter. Inside is a special compartment to hold your loved one's cremated remains.  A growing system of interlocking ring trays, and accessories to assist in the planting process.

How Does It Work?

The Indoor Living Urn®  has a special separated outer chamber to hold and securely contain the cremated remains. The inner chambers hold the houseplant and growing medium. Instructions are provided to distribute a small amount of cremated remains into the growing medium. All you have to do is choose your plant that you wish to place inside and follow the easy instructions provided. The ceramic lid will enclose everything for a lovely, finished look. Questions? Check out our Indoor Living Urn FAQ page.

Order a bonsai tree or houseplant from us to plant in the urn, or pick up one from your local nursery (in which case just order the urn) and follow the instructions we provide to plant with Indoor The Living Urn®.  For Domestic US purchase only.
