I've actually gotten a few of these, it's really fun to wear the plant for a little while and then you plant it into its own pot when it gets bigger :) all of them are doing well now in bigger pots I personally had no rotting issues. You're only supposed to water once a month
Happy to hear they are doing well. How long do they survive in the terrarium?
They're extremely slow growing so you could keep them in there for a few months maybe even longer. For mine I get bored of having them in the capsule after like a month so then I transplant to a tiny pot. I don't get these necklaces anymore though it was just something weird I was into when I first got obsessed with plants lol. 😅
This little burros tail I have came from a necklace when it was so tiny I really had no idea what it was
I suppose this could be considered questionable now I think about it as perhaps growth is stunted while being in the capsule until you plant it 🤔
Looks so pretty and healthy 😍
you take it out of the plastic and plant it when it gets bigger
I don't know enough about the plants to give an informed opinion, but I think that the jostling of the keys can't be good for the plant. And if the capsule doesn't have air holes for the plant to breath, then that's definitely not good for the plant.
In theory, I think it's very cute.
But in practice? I think it's abuse.
You can see a triangle shaped air hole at the top of the capsule
Thx! Didn't notice that before lol!
[Mine](https://imgur.com/a/grr0lZY) is 5 or 6 years old.
He sits in a plate of water for 15 seconds about once a month. [He's in great shape](https://imgur.com/a/4tOdOue)
Nooo way! It's so cute 😍
He has no rot or blemishes. He sits in a west facing window on a bone china tea saucer so that he doesn't get overlooked.
I bought one for myself and my friend off Amazon jokingly all those years ago.
Hers sits with about a dozen other varieties in the terrariums on her desk at the bank. She calls it her mini cactus garden and clients love it. She bought little metal dollhouse bakers racks kinda like [these](https://www.google.com/search?q=metal+dollhouse+baking+rack&oq=metal+dollhouse+baking+&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j33i160l4j33i299l3.7416j0j9&client=ms-android-verizon&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8#imgrc=r4xZkYpUmtTnnM&scso=_gMynYaubHZuqqtsPyZuD0As3:5805.14306640625) and plant stands and she has them on her work desk.
Like a cactus bonsai.
How many plants get to see the world?
Bringing this dilemma to the table: Can Abuse be Cute? Are the two concepts mutually exclusive?
I suppose from the plant's perspective it cannot be both 🤔
But as others commented these little fellows can indeed survive in a keychain. Wouldn't have imagined that!
Lol, perhaps a better way to say it is they *can* survive in a keychain, if you take them out of it.
[He's 5 or 6](https://imgur.com/a/grr0lZY) and in great shape.
So cute 💚
It’s looks wrinkled and sickly
haha, I thought they would be dead in a week or less. Even one month is amazing.
The humidity is gonna rot those cacti is it not?
That ventilation hole looks so tiny...
almost as bad as those little live turtle keychains they were making in the 2000s. it’s a living thing damn it!!!
Only abuse if you leave it in the keychain for far too long
It's just going to die.
[Or maybe 6](https://imgur.com/a/grr0lZY). He's in great shape.
That's not in great shape for that time frame.
I am amazed at how long it has struggled on though. Cacti are amazing.
I don't know... are bonsai trees ever in a good shape?
Yes, they are quite healthy when properly pruned, watered and fed. I completely understand the argument that they are enslaved/ tortured, but as far as plant health goes, properly cared for bonsai can be quite healthy.
Now those poor juniper that get sold by the hundreds as easy starter bonsai, I'm not for that. They're being sold to die. I am ok with devoted Bonsai masters. (Working on my ISA certification, degree in horticulture, for reference.)
Tbf, I've never seen a proper bonsai close up, only the cheap (probably abused) ones.
Well, brace yourself for some plant porn! https://www.bonsaiempire.com/inspiration/bonsai-japan/masahiko-kimura
These are cute af
It could be cute if in a capsule was a real prick lol
I once tried to order one and it came rotten and moldy. They had a need to water ot before transport 🥲
