Each GemSprout is approximately 1.5" tall and contains a REAL living plant. Each GemSprout comes from Central Florida, and was grown with no harmful chemicals or pesticides. These cacti grow in clumps on top of each other and don't have a root system yet, so they are held in place with a special glue. Naturally, when the cacti get too big, they fall off of the clump, and land in the soil and start to grow roots, and then more little cacti themselves. When your little cacti gets too big, simply open the capsule, remove the plant, and place the base of the cacti in dry soil, but do not water it, and within a month, it will sprout roots.
GemSprouts make wonderful presents for bridesmaids, birthdays, graduations, teacher gifts, and wedding favors.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PLANT
GemSprouts are almost completely maintenance free. Like all plants they require earth, sun, and water. Once a month simply take the top off of your Gemsprout, and place 10 - 15 droplets of water around the base of your plant. When you place the cap back on the plant, make sure it is secured tightly, and you hear a clicking noise. Keep your tiny friend happy with a few hours of sunlight each day (but don't leave them in the windowsill for days on end) and like all plants, your GemSprout will continue to grow! Once you notice your plant is outgrowing the capsule, normally between 6 months and a year - simply replant your GemSprout in a larger container, or out in the garden.
If you water them too much, they will outgrow their capsules in a matter of weeks, so please do not water them more than once a month, no matter how tempting it may be. To keep the cacti from being over watered, they are attached to a membrane above the soil. When watered, the soil becomes saturated and for the weeks following, the moisture circulates through the eco-dome through evaporation and condensation, giving it just the right amount. All plants are watered prior to shipping and will not need to be watered again for 3 - 4 weeks after.
