Indoor Living Urn FAQ

How does it work?

The Indoors Living Urn  has a special separated outer chamber within the urn to hold and securely contain the cremated remains of your loved one. The inner chambers hold the Bonsai Tree or 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 Bonsai Tree or plant that you wish to place inside and follow the easy instructions provided. The ceramic lid will enclose everything for a lovely, finished look.

What Bonsai's are available?

We currently offer six Bonsai Tree choices with your purchase of The Living Urn Indoors. These Bonsai Trees are typically 6 to 10 years old and measure 10” to 15” in height to best fit for your Living Urn Indoors.

The Ficus Retusa, Willow Leaf Ficus, and Braided Money Trees are best suited to be grown indoors or may be placed outside in mild climates (not below 50 degrees F). The Trained Windswept Juniper and Trained Tiered Juniper Trees are best to grow outdoors on a patio.

How easy is it to keep the Bonsai's alive?

Our Bonsai Trees are selected for easy care and low maintenance. Each tree comes with easy to follow care instructions. Your Bonsai Tree will be a strong, mature tree that can be enjoyed for many, many years. That being said, all living things are touched by the cycle of life. In the event your Bonsai Tree or other plant needs to be replaced, it's a very simple process. Alternately, The Living Urn Indoors is also designed to be used as a vase for cut flowers so that you have multiple options for using The Living Urn Indoors as a memorial for your loved one.

How much water do Bsonai's need?

Please refer to the instructions supplied with your Bonsai Tree as the watering will vary depending on the type of Bonsai Tree. Generally speaking, it best not to over water. You may choose to purchase a Water Meter to monitor the moisture of the soil.

Can I purchase the Indoor Living Urn without tree?

Yes, you may purchase The Living Urn Indoors and choose your own bonsai tree or any small plant in a standard 4” diameter pot to insert the root ball into The Living Urn Indoors plant container area. You may also choose to place cut flowers in the middle of the urn, or not to grow anything inside and simply use the supplied matching ceramic lid to cover the opening, thereby utilizing our elegant urn to bless your home.

What plants are compatible with the Indoor Living Urn?

The patented Indoors Living Urn assembly allows you to use any standard 4” diameter planter pot in the center growing area (remove plant from grower’s pot). This can include most houseplants for indoors such as African Violets, Orchids, Golden Pothos, Spider Plant, mini Bamboo, Dracaena, etc. Patio options can include small Ferns, Palms, Lavender, Succulents, Cyclamen or consider your relative’s favorite flower to plant seasonally and keep on the patio. You can also simply remove an older plant carefully and replace with something new over the years, as you choose.

Can the Indoors Living Urn hold flowers?

Rather than using a live plant with The Living Urn Indoors, you can use the provided cup insert to hold water and fresh cut flowers. At any time in the future, you can remove the water cup and add your bonsai tree or other live plant.
