The Q&A Archives: Volcano rock plants?

Question: How do you plant Volcano rock plants? Are they Perennials? I wanted to plant them in the dirt. Thank you for your time.
Charles E. Torres

Answer: Volcano rock plants are simply plants that have adapted to growing in the indentations or crevices of volcanic rock. Anthuriums are good examples; they can be planted in fast-draining soils, or will root themselves on a hunk of volcanic rock. If you have tropical plants, you can grow them in any fast draining soil (cactus mix is a good choice, or chipped bark such as is used for orchids). Best wishes with your plants!
