Your cuttings will show up individually wrapped, each with their own pocket of water to survive the trip. 

Depending on the length of the journey, they may need a day or two in water to perk back up. Once your plants are setup in your home, you'll want to follow this care routine to keep them happy and growing: 

- Top off water in your glass vases once a week
- Fully replace water at least once a month
- Add hydroponic nutrients to your plant monthly
- That's it!

  • Grow for Years

    This is not your average prop product - we've done thorough testing to ensure houseplants can grow in our vases for years without having to be re-potted

  • Once-a-Month Plant Care

    Growing in water is flexible and forgiving. Top off water weekly and replace it monthly. The fresh water will replenish the oxygen - making root rot and watering stress a thing of the past.

  • Roots, Leaves, and Flowers

    Experience your plants growing leaves, flowers, and roots through the course of the year - all with a minimal care routine. Add water, a few drops of nutrients, and watch them thrive. 

Here's a Care Guide to Growing in Water if you'd like to learn more.


Is growing plants in water seriously that easy?

Yes! We love planting in water because of how clean and easy it is. To keep your plants alive, simply ensure that they’re kept in an area without much temperature variation, refill the water every 2 weeks, and a monthly couple drops of nutrients. A full care guide can be found here.

How do I find cuttings for your products?

Sourcing plants is one of the most exciting parts of owning our Grow Frames and Hangers. The first places we generally look for cuttings are existing houseplants, swapping with friends and family, and buying plants to use for cuttings from local nurseries. Additionally, we'll be selling cuttings as an optional add-on from late March - October if you'd like our curated selection. 

For more info on finding plants to grow in our products, check outthis guide here

How are your products 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 plant(s) to hang. Follow the simple instructions, and voila!

For a step-by-step walkthrough, here's a video of Modern Botanical co-founder, Conrad, going through the mounting process in our San Diego woodshop: 

How long will my plants survive in water?

Plants purchased from Modern Botanical should stay healthy for at least a year. Beyond that, it varies by variety, but some plants, like the monstera deliciosa, have been known to survive for over a decade in water. Plant selection is key, which is why we only sell plants that thrive in water.

Love everything!


Beautiful plants. Followed the video that explained how to clean and properly prep the plants and found it very helpful.

Patrick R
New plant parent

I received a 3 plant starter set from Modern Botanicals. I am new to plant keeping. My only complaint is that the main leaf on one of my plants was broken practically in half. I am hoping that it survives and rejuvenates. The other two plants are in great shape. I also ordered 2 wall hanging vases that are beautiful. I really like them. Thanks for my new hobby.

Hey Patrick, thanks for your review, means the world to us as we're a small shop right now with our two founders and our woodshop team doing all the work for this business.

We will be here to help with plant care and also guarantee our plants. So if you need any help or if the plant doesn't come back strong, feel free to send photos to the chat and we'll help you or send replacements as needed.

Thanks. -Jonas
