- Top off water in your vases once a week

- Add hydroponic nutrients to your plant monthly
- That's it

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 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. 

How do I setup the plants to grow in water.

Transitioning your plants is a fairly straightforward and simple process. You remove the dirt, clean the roots and your plants are ready to start developing new water roots.

Love it!

I can’t begin to tell you how much I love these. I first bought the maple inlays.. 3 singles, one double and one triple. Loved them, so I bosught 2 more.. walnut inlays. The walnut inlays are superb looking…. They made my jaw drop!!! I can’t wait to see all the plants grow. Thank you Conrad and Jonas. Excellent customer service… a slight delay in shipment.. but sooo worth the wait. Highly highly recommended. Thank you.
