In return, we get these beautiful lightweight pumice Featherocks formed by a molten lava explosion which released gasses to create the distinctive spongy texture these rocks are known for.
To honor this experience I say we make a Jurassic planter. I'm talking historic rock, Jurassic plants and of course, dinosaurs. If you're good at carving you can etch into this stone a place to plant just like the Cro Magnum man might have done. -
To make this as Jurassic as possible we'll lean on plants we know were from that area like ginkgos, ferns, cycads, and diones. And, our soil must be rich and well draining. Let's plant!
Put your larger plants in the larger spot.
Drainage hole - no need to cover this time around.
This would make for a great science project with the kids.
Add dino's and you have a period correct Jurassic planter with Featherock that was formed over 40,000 years ago.
