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

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!
