Curly Sue with Mini Bench Planter
This product is sold out
A super 'loco' constantly curly, epiphytic cactus. Originally from the jungles of Guatemala. Their unique form and striking green foliage makes them a stand out in any location. Plus, they're super easy to care for, especially if you're one of those people who forgets to water!
Curly Sue will produce spectacular white flowers that uniquely open at night so they can be pollinated by bats and moths (don’t worry they won’t attract bats into your house). Once pollinated it produces bright pink fruits that are edible.
Requires infrequent watering. Water when the top one-third of the soil in the pot dries out.
Not particularly fussy about where it lives as long as it doesn't get direct sunlight. Curly Sue loves bright indirect light but will also do well in shade.
May get up to 50x50 cm. Place them somewhere where their amazing foliage can tumble over the edge of a bench or shelf for the best effect!
Curly Sue is easy to care for and will constantly impress. As any plant owner knows, it is good to get an idea of what she likes and is used to when growing in the wild
About the pot
A beautifully elegant hand-made ceramic piece. This pot is made with a simple yet elegant, gritty clay coated with a clear glaze that has been high-fired to ensure it is extremely durable. These planters have drainage holes and come with a matching coaster (not saucer) to maintain the clean lines of this pot. The bottom of the coaster has been sanded smooth to ensure it won't scratch your furniture.
A bit about the ceramicist
This piece was made by the amazingly talented Jenn Johnstone of Jenn Johnstone Ceramics.

Fast forward a few years and she is creating beautifully elegant and functional hand crafted ceramics in her garden studio. Jen's work reflects her love of gardening, contemporary design and Japenese aesthetics.
