Botanical Bliss

The Botanical Bliss reflects pure and untamable life and is be available for you now. Its fresh colours in apricot, red, and of course a diverse variety of different shades of green, remind you of the wooded tropics it was named after. With this ensemble, The Plant Box creates an impenetrable vegetation of ribbon fern, caladium, and painted nettle, which will turn your balcony into a real jungle. From the hanging begonia, Tarzan can swing from vine to vine with his familiar animalistic cry and land right on your patio. After all, the Botanical Bliss can't hold anything back, let alone tame it. It grows lushly out of your Plant Box in all directions, just like its tropical namesake.

2. Care tips

White-flowered ground ivy

White-flowered ground ivy is not only an ancient medicinal plant, which already played an important role in the Middle Ages, but also an extremely decorative balcony plant. With its gray-green leaves, which are wintergreen and have a white edge, it is a real eye-catcher. The white-flowered ground ivy is closely related to the mints and requires plenty of water. You should be careful not to water the plant over the leaves to keep it from burning in the sunshine. It is simply important that the soil does not dry out. Otherwise, the white-flowered ground ivy is a very low maintenance plant and will provide a pleasant atmosphere in your Botanical Bliss.

You are welcome to repot the white variegated groundsel and put it in a hanging basket, as its leaves grow down beautifully.



The Caladium is a tropical plant originally from Central and South America. It is characterized by its heart-shaped or arrow-shaped, but very thin and vulnerable leaves. To ensure healthy growth, you should make sure that the Caladium is watered sufficiently. Too little water will cause the leaves to wilt quickly, but too much will cause the tubers to rot, and we want to avoid that as well. In the summer, the Caladium has a high water consumption overall. If it lets its leaves droop, it may be a sign of a lack of water. Brown leaves can be a sign that the plant is getting too much direct sun. Note that caladium is toxic to cats, dogs and other animals. If withered leaves appear, you should cut them off to encourage new leaf growth.

In winter, all the leaves die and only the tuber is overwintered, so that the next year leaves can sprout again. Caladium can also be kept as a houseplant, like the hem fern.



The fuchsia is an enchanting plant with graceful bell-shaped flowers that sit by the hundreds on the bushes, decorating your Botanical Bliss. It is extremely easy to care for and especially tolerates shady spots, making it a popular plant for shade balconies. It is important to water the fuchsia regularly in high temperatures and dry weather. Here it is also recommended to spray the plant with a spray bottle. However, so that nothing can burn due to sunlight, this should happen only in the morning and evening. If the plant lets the leaves hang, this is a sure sign that it is too hot. It is protecting itself by letting the leaves droop from evaporating even more moisture.
To keep the fuchsia in shape, you can cut off faded shoots. This can easily be done by cutting a third of the entire volume. However, be careful not to damage the wood of the shoots and do not trim them too far.

To overwinter, you can simply place the fuchsia in a cool, dark room and remove all flowers and soft shoots beforehand.


Ribbon fern

Unlike its demanding relatives, the ribbon fern doesn't need much attention to stay happy and healthy. One of the most important care tips is to keep it evenly moist. Make sure the root ball never dries out. Otherwise, leaf and scale insect infestations may occur or black spots will show on the leaves. Speaking of leaves, if you notice wilted, brown leaves, simply cut them off. Otherwise, the ribbon fern does not need to be pruned. You should also not expose it to direct sunlight. Too much sunlight can burn its delicate leaves.

When it gets colder and you want to overwinter your Botanical Bliss, you are welcome to take the hem fern indoors as a houseplant.



3. Sheep's wool

Where does the sheep's wool come from?

We source our sheep’s wool from middle European countries such as Germany, Austria, and France. The sheep’s wool is organic and sustainable. No animal has to die or suffer for it, since the wool is a natural “waste product” of sheep farming that would otherwise be disposed of unused.

  • Warum Schafwolle?

    • Organic complex- and slow-release fertilizer.
    • It consists mainly of keratin, and therefore of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen.
    • It also contains potassium, sulfur, magnesium, and some phosphorus; all nutrients that are important for plants.
    • With these nutrients, your plants get sufficient strength to grow and bloom and are given a long life.
    • Sheep’s wool is also ideally suited for transporting our creations. The plants are protected and arrive safely at your home.
    • Sheep‘s wool: The perfect water reservoir. The wool absorbs the water like a sponge and then slowly releases it back into the soil. Neverthless, it does not completely protect from drying out. It must, of course, continue to be watered sufficiently and regularly.
    • The virgin sheep‘s wool prevents weed growth without chemical additives, support fibers, or support grids.

How sheep's wool decomposes?

After a time (depending on the weather approx. 1-2 months) small, white-ish holes appear in the wool sack. Please do not worry! These are not mold or other fungi. This is simply a part of the natural decomposition process of sheep‘s wool. In the meantime, your plants can even be particularly happy, because the nutrients are properly released. Depending on the weather, it takes a good year for the wool to disolve completely.


4. Proper watering

  • 1. The Finger Test
    You can easliy find out if the plants need water several times a day or if a watering break is necessary by pressing your thumb a bit into the soil and checking if it feels dry. If you want to know exactly, then you can use a moisture meter to test the soil.
  • 2. At the Right Time
    The ideal time to water is in the morning. This will supply your plants at the beginning of the vegetative phase. In the warmer months, depending on the location, another pass in the evening can be useful. Midday is not so good for watering, because that is often when the heat is at its highest, and water droplets on the leaves act like little magnifying glasses in the sun, magnifying the heat and burning the leaves.
  • 3. Full Can
    Use a watering can with a long neck and dispense the water with the spout in the front. This way you can better get between the flowers directly to the plant stems, because that‘s where you want to go so your irrigation water reaches the roots. You can also find suitable models in our online-shop. 
  • 4. Well-Targeted
    Aim the spout of the watering can at each of your plants, if possible, and now gently let water run directly into the surrounding soil. This works even better if you cut open the top of the sheep‘s wool after planting the creation and expose the soil around each plant.

5. Plant Box

Ever looked for a suitable balcony box?

What we saw out there in the garden centres and DIY stores of the world did not convince us - neither in terms of visual design, nor in terms of the sustainability of the materials used; it is really dangerous when the brackets are poorly fitted or too thin. And last but not least, conventional balcony boxes are downright waterlogging systems with a rot guarantee.

So what else could we do but reinvent the balcony box?

Ending & New Beginning

6. Disposal

  • For A Quick Change

    The new creation has arrived, and the previous must give way. Now it‘s time for the huge paper bag that comes with each of our creation deliveries. The bag takes on the entire contents of the box in one go, and you‘re ready for a new season of blossoming.

  • Save What You Can!

    But wait a minute, some of your plants may still be in full bloom and are far too good for the organic waste bin. So how about a little transplant action? It‘s best to use a mini shovel with a sharp tip. We always have the perfect pots in our shop to give rescued plants a new home. It is important that they have a hole at the bottom and a saucer for excess water, because often it just comes from above! By the way, perennial plants are also regularly part of our creations. You can find out which ones in the Creazine or in the Plant- O-Thek on our website. 

  • Clear as a Bell?

    Bag, soil, creation, sheep‘s wool - it‘s all fully compostable and can go in the organic waste bin. Just make sure that there are no more safety pins in the sheep‘s wool. These were used to stabilise the plants for transport to you. It‘s best to remove the safety pins as soon as you receive your new creation.
