All materials used are recycled or salvaged where possible. No lacquer or covering is used. The material is polished to a natural finish by hand and the products are designed to age over time.
Over time copper naturally changes colour. Transforming from a shiny brown/red colour to darker browns, then blues and finally greens after a number of years. When exposed to the natural elements copper develops this ‘patina’ which actually protects and preserves the metal underneath.
If you wish to clean the copper, we recommend some very fine wire wool or some P1000 or higher silicone carbide sandpaper both of which can be picked up from your local hardware shop.
Cacti and succulents are easy care, drought tolerant plants. They store water in the fleshy tissues of their stems, roots or leaves. The most common killer of cacti and succulents is over-watering! Wait until the soil is dry to apply a few more drops of water, if in doubt, don’t water! Water every 1-2 weeks in summer and reduce to every 3-4 weeks in winter.
Try not to place copper planter in direct sunlight as the copper is conductive and will heat up which may damage the roots if left for prolonged periods, A quiet spot in indirect sunlight is ideal!
