The Living Urn® Indoors / Patio provides families with a way to grow a beautiful living memory tree or houseplant indoors, or on a patio, from our attractive, proprietary urn holding the cremated remains of a loved one. The urn itself is made from sleek porcelain, comes in three colors, and measures approximately 9” high and 9” in diameter. Inside is a special compartment to hold your loved one's cremated remains, our proprietary growing system of interlocking ring trays, and accessories to assist in the planting process.
How Does It Work?
The Living Urn® Indoors / Patio has a special separated outer chamber to hold and securely contain the cremated remains. The inner chambers hold the Bonsai Tree, or houseplant, and growing medium. Instructions are provided to distribute a small amount of cremated remains into the growing medium. All you have to do is choose your Bonsai Tree or plant that you wish to place inside and follow the easy instructions provided. The ceramic lid will enclose everything for a lovely, finished look.
