A Home to Call Their Own

Ready to test out that green thumb while bringing all the birds to your yard? This living roof birdhouse comes with organic soil, succulent cuttings and a hanging kit, making it a breeze to start your own succulent garden while providing all the hippest birds in your 'hood with a funky new place to relax. You'll want to give your new succulents about 8-10 weeks to "root" in the birdhouse and keep the roof slightly moist throughout. Afterwards, the planter, made from redwood by Heather Auchter, can be kept fairly dry and watered with a spray of the hose. Handmade in California.



Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Notes
This is a complete kit with succulent cuttings, soil, and rooting powder. The succulents require planting upon receipt of the kit.

Please note: succulents will take approximately 8-12 weeks to "root". The roof should be kept slightly moist while rooting. Thereafter it can be allowed to go fairly dry and watered with a fine hose spray. As the plants grow, they can be pinched back to keep them compact if desired. That cutting can be added to Living Roof or planted in a pot to start another succulent.
Due to the reclaimed nature of the wood, some variance is to be expected.

      Would not buy this again because cuteness does not overcome pricey.

      Comments about LIVING ROOF BIRDHOUSE KIT:

      Very impressed with the number of plants and variety received. Good instructions. Plants seem a little flimsy right now but according to the instructions, will take time to root. Easy to put together. Keeping inside for the winter and planning to re-locate outside for the summer.

        Comments about LIVING ROOF BIRDHOUSE KIT:

        We bought this adorable birdhouse for Mother's Day. It was very easy for my mother to set up. The succulents were carefully wrapped and arrived looking healthy. The actual birdhouse is built well. It's a nice addition to her window garden. Once the succulents take root, I'm sure she will move it outside to the garden.
