I work at a home decor/garden shop... White Rose...
We got this new novelty plant in... There are three differnet types of plants, but all of them have the same idea.
They are the small plants (Money tree, lucky bamboo and some other one... a palm of some sort, I think) in a some "artificial soil". This artificial soil is in a plastic drawstring bag. This plastic bag is in a velvety drawstring bag, which you can affic to your monitor (or I guess anywhere)w ith an adhesive piece of velro.
The cath is that you only need to water it ONE tablespoon of water, every two months.
Now. I wonder, not only will it probably lose more than one tablespoon of water through transpiration in two months (assuming Rh is less than 100%), but doesn't the plant need a bit more than that to survive. All that tugor stuff, and cellular reproduction all requires H2O, no?
I'm quite interested in learninn what you people think about this...
