Curly Sue with Mini Bench Planter
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.
Pot dimensions: 9cm wide x 9cm tall (including coaster)
A bit about the ceramicist
This piece was made by the amazingly talented Jenn Johnstone of Jenn Johnstone Ceramics. After a change of scenery from inner city Melbourne to Mullumbimby in Northern NSW, Jen decided to pursue her long held desire to work with clay. Fast forward a few years and she is creating beautifully elegant and functional hand crafted ceramics in her garden studio. Jenn's work reflects her love of gardening, contemporary design and Japanese aesthetics.

Caring for your Curly Sue with Mini Bench Planter
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
Please note, due to quarantine restrictions on plants and soil, we are not able to deliver plants to WA, NT and TAS.
