Indoor Urns, How They Work & What They Are

How does The Living Urn Indoors work?

The Living Urn Indoors 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 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 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 are the Bonsai Tree options I can purchase for The Living Urn Indoors?
Trees that are typically 6 to 10 years old and/or 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.


Where is it best to place The Living Urn Indoors?

The Living Urn Indoors is designed to use either indoors or on a patio, depending on where you prefer to see it. If you keep it indoors, most bonsai trees and plants prefer to be within 2 feet of a window with good sunlight part of the day. You may also consider to purchase a grow light if you prefer to place it further away from a window.

How much water does a tree need?

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

What plants can I grow in The Living Urn Indoors?

The Living Urn Indoors 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 I use The Living Urn Indoors to hold cut flowers instead of a tree or plant?

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.
