You can plant the coir pot directly into the ground, which will eliminate root disturbance and help keep your plant happy. The roots will make their way through the pot and into the soil. The pot itself will decompose within about two months in healthy, watered soil.


African Dream Herb – Silene capensis. 1.1L coir pot.

This perennial herb is native to South Africa and is a sacred plant to the Xhosa people.

The roots of the plant are traditionally used to aid lucid dreaming. The roots generally need to be over two years of age.

The plant has lovely white fragrant flowers.

Ideally, it prefers full sun but it will tolerate some shade. It can handle extreme heat as long as it has access to water.

This plant is hard to find and is rather interesting indeed.
