These have finally arrived. Our first commission in marble and granite from China. These are also called "Lucky Beasts." We sent the photo of what we had seen and said to create a garden piece for our customers. What came to us has been described as strange, wonderful and adorable. The best part of these is that they are protectors of the garden and traditionally are said to give good fortune to the owner. We have these in black marble, grey granite and green and grey marble. We have only 12. These would be great as a gift either for a friend or yourself. This is suitable for home or garden.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
