About This Product

 Bring the beauty of land and sea home with this one-of-a-kind handcrafted planter. 

These air plants have been hand-selected and planted securely in a Conch, a common name of a number of different sea snail shells and are ready to bring a unique nautical flair to your home, office, or terrarium.
