Cremated remains are coarse, colourless and odourless granules with a high percentage of valuable minerals. When you water the plant, a patented procedure allows moisture to circulate in the urn. Over weeks, months and years the tiny minerals are released from the ashes and transported to the roots of your plant. An indiscernible and completely natural process.
NEW GROWTH OFFERS A COMFORTING VIEW OF THE ETERNAL, CYCLICAL NATURE OF LIFE.
Even without a plant, the container has an attractive appearance, thanks to a porcelain lid. This allows PANTA RHEI to be interred in a cemetery or natural burial site, should you so wish. PANTA RHEI is made of 100% natural materials and does not contaminate the soil.
How PANTA RHEI works
PANTA RHEI is divided into a plant chamber (1) at the top and an ashchamber (2) at the bottom. A hollow “seal stone” (3) divides the two chambers when inserted.
The corresponding lid (4) is only used, if no plant is inserted.
A patented “seal stone” closes the lower chamber, once it is filled up with ashes.
This is how your local funeral home delivers the urn. The top chamber can be instantly used like an ordinary flowerpot.
The lower chamber is filled with ashes. The hollow seal stone is pushed into the ashes until it closes the chamber completely.
If you intend to take home only parts of the ashes, the hollow seal stone can be filled, closed and inserted into the lower chamber.
If you do not want the nutrients in the ashes to be consumed by a plant, the lower chamber can be safely closed with a provided plastic cap. This way, the plant serves a purely decorative purpose.
When the plant in the upper plant chamber (1) is watered, excess moisture trickels down to the lower chamber (2), thus preventing waterlogging.
Here the moisture is fortified with minerals from the ashes, such as phosphorous and potassium.
The porous “seal stone” transports the fortified water upwards to the roots of your plant by its natural capillary action. The ashes themselves do not dissolve.
