What are our customers saying?

How does it work?

The Living Urn Indoors / Patio is simple and easy to use. It is designed with several chambers inside of the urn to create an optimal growing environment for the plant or bonsai tree. The outer chamber securely holds the cremated ashes, while the inner chambers hold the plant or tree along with the growing medium. We provide clear instructions on how to spread a small portion of the cremated ashes into the growing medium. This special cremation urn also comes with a matching porcelain lid, which helps secure everything in place and gives the urn a sleek, finished look.
