I’m Roo, the Serissa Japonica, and native to open woodlands and wet meadows in southeast Asia. I have a wide and old trunk. I'm from the genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae. I sport little white flowers and bloom often throughout the year, which is how I got my nickname, ‘Tree of a Thousand Stars.’
I will thrive indoors in bright indirect light but also like being outdoors during the spring and summer. Keep me in temperatures above 50 ̊F all year. To water, submerge my pot in water for about 10 minutes or longer. I will suck up water through my pot’s drainage hole. Do this about once every 5-7 days, or when my pot feels about 1/2 lighter.
This unique Marbled Gray Acorn Planter evokes a playful twist on a classic favorite. With its dreamy off-white and slate-gray swirls finished with a glossy glaze is a special collaboration with NYC ceramic artist Jonathan Castro.
Symbolism: The Serissa flowers a few times a year with small white/pink flowers. This tree symbolizes abundance, luck and hope.
