For use in a flower pot or container

We recommend a large pot or container to alleviate the harmful effect of the sodium contained in the cremation ash. Pot or container minimum dimensions:

  • 36 centimeters in diameter
  • 30 centimeters in height
  • At least 10 centimeters bigger than the root ball of the plant

Step 1: Unseal the Living Memorial bag and mix contents of bag with potting soil. Use two times the amount of potting soil as the mixture in the bag.

Step 2: Follow directions for normal planting and watering. Be sure to water plant thoroughly after planting.

 

For use in burial with a plant

Step 1: Dig a hole at least two times the size of the root ball of the plant. Place cremation ash mixture into the hole and spread evenly along the bottom

Step 2: Follow directions for normal planting and watering. Be sure to water plant thoroughly after planting.

*Living Memorial uses RTN soil which is the only organic mixture that allows your loved one’s ashes cremated ashes to live again. You can use Living Memorial when planting memorial plants or trees and for burial in a manner that does no harm to the environment.

Directions for use without a plant

 

For use in scattering

Allow cremation ash mixture to rest for 120 days or more before scattering. If scattered too soon, the cremation ash may separate from the RTN soil mixture and the effects of the product will be greatly diminished.

 

For use in burial without a plant

Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the cremation ash mixture. Place cremation ash mixture into the hole and cover with soil. Water thoroughly.

*Cremation ash has a very high pH (alkaline) and a high level of sodium. Sodium is detrimental to plant growth. RTN soil is specially formulated to lower the pH and dilute the sodium while unlocking the nutrients within the ash, making the cremation ash a nutrient for the plant and enhancement for the soil.
