The planted birdcage is great for outdoor spaces like patios or porches. Although it would prefer an outdoor space, it still doesn't want to be in the scorching sun. This birdcage will spruce up any space, and maybe even spark up a conversation. In this birdcage you will find a string of pearls, and Sweet Alyssum. This combination of plants is not for the novice plant enthusiast however, so be sure to gift it to a friend who's had some experience in gardening.
Caring for this ensamble can be easy if you just follow these few instructions:
It prefers to be in a partially sun area.
Put your birdcage outside, rather than inside.
Water approximately once a week.
If the string of pearls becomes soggy, hold back the watering for a day or two.
