Our sponges grow on rocks in the warm waters off the Florida coast.
Divers cut the sponges leaving a 2 inch stem attached to the rock. This
piece will rejuvenate and begin to grow. This new sponge will be ready
to harvest the following year. The sponge also releases sperms when cut
which give birth to new sponges. In times of rough seas, many sponges
won’t survive so divers will plant sponges onto
rocks for the next
year’s harvest. We have been buying our sea sponges directly from the
same divers for the past 16 years. They're wonderful people and supply
us with some of the best sponges at the some of the best prices.river soap company- all vegetable, natural soap.
