Q. Do I need to feed the plants?
A. You do not need to feed the plant cuttings, however if you would like to see faster growth you can use a very small amount of houseplant food. Remember to use a very small amount.
Q. Do I have to plant the plant cutting after it has rooted?
A. You do not have to plant the cutting. Once it has roots you can simply cut some of those roots off each year. You just don’t want the plant to get root bound.

Q. How do I clean the vase?
A. It is very easy to clean. The vase comes off of the copper frame for easy cleaning with either a dishcloth with soapy water or a bottlebrush.
Q. Do I need to clean the copper frame?
A. The copper frame does not need to be cleaned; it has been dipped in a clear poly finish and will last for years. Just dust.
Q. Is there any special water I need to use?
A. I like to use Spring Water. If you have good well water go ahead and use it. Do not use softened water, or filtered water, or distilled water. Remember the plants are living on the trace minerals and nutrients found in the good water.
