Just wanted to share a photo of my sons fathers day gift to me. I think this is awesome.
What a great gift!
I see these at Walmart and really want one. What's their real name? The ones there have the stones glued on, why do they do that?? Are they removable?
I bought mine at Walmart and the stones "were" glued until I got it home. I took a small philips screw driver abd poked a hole through them and began lifting chunks of the toppings off. Being careful to stay away from stem until I got it out of pot. Then I gently kinda peeled them away from it. Been 3 months now..replanted in good C&S /perlite soil and it has 2 new crest like growths appearing..1 on top and 1 under.
The stupid stones are glued to make shipping the plants easier. :-/
Ive purchased a few things from walmart, all of which were in the glued stone. Certainly due to shipping, this one was too.
I see, so does that mean there's no way to repot these things? Do you find it a problem or glued on stones are okay too?
I always pretty much immediately repot, the glued stone thing just cant be good in the long run. You just have to be gentle, you can get the stuff broken up.
Boy, That baby has some swing!
