How do I keep my plants alive in water?
How long can my plants survive in water?
Houselants survive in water do so by utilizing the oxygen that's absorbed in water to support photosynthesis. Not all plants are able to do this but we've been impressed with how many varieties work well. Plant selection is key, which is why we only sell plants that thrive in water. Plants purchased from Modern Botanical should stay healthy for years. We have a list of plants that grow in water you can find by clicking here.
How are the frames mounted to the wall?
Each frame comes with a mounting guide to ensure easy hanging on any wall. Tape the guide to the wall where you'd like your frame and the plant(s) to hang. Follow the simple instructions, and voila!
Can I put my own plants in your water planters?
Yes! Not all houseplants will propagate and continue to live in water, but the majority will. Two big plant families that tend to perform great in water alone are aroids and succulents. Keep an eye on our Plant Resources section as we share our research, here you can find a full list of plants that grow well in water and a guide on growing houseplants in water by clicking here.

Propagation Station vs Modern Botanical Grow Frames
Our mounting system is intended for dry wall and plaster. If you have a brick, cement or other harder wall material, the frames can be mounted, you can use a drill to make the holes or you can glue 3m velcro command strips to our product and stick the other side to the wall (make sure to press and hold firmly when installing.)
