Amorphophallus konjac

(Syn.: Amorphophallus rivieri), Konjac Voodoo Lily, Konnyaku Potato, Devil's Tongue

Amorphophallus konjac


This unusual exotic plant is in the same family as the Giant Corpse Flower (A. titanum), which often is a newsmaker when in bloom. This easy to grow plant is a much smaller cousin with a 5 foot flower stalk that has an amazing dark, liver-purple spadix surrounded by a lighter purple spathe. It emits an interesting provocative scent mimicking a dead animal to lure in flies for pollination. The single huge snowflake-like leaf emerges from the corm after blooming growing up to 4 feet high on a green and purple mottled, fleshy stalk. In cold climates lift the huge corm in the fall to store. The large corm is commonly used in Asian cuisine and for herbal remedies. It's a widespread species from the eastern Himalayas to China and the Philippines. Image from Curtis's Botanical Magazine 1875. Araceae

Sold in 3" pots.


Anthurium pentaphyllum

Anthurium pentaphyllum


New! We are pleased to offer this rare Anthurium from our collection for the first time. This is a palmate-leaved aroid, normally with 5 (sometimes 7 to 9) leaflets. The span of the leaves can grow up to 18 inches wide. When blooming, the upright spadix is purplish in color. Easy to grow in warm tropical conditions, it quickly scrambles up trees with its many aerial roots. Also, it can grow upon itself forming an upright clump to 4 feet. Try potted as an indoor house plant with well draining epiphytic type soil on a moss pole. Grow in part to full shade with a minimum temperature of 50F. It's a variable species, ranging from Mexico, Central America, Columbia and Ecuador to the Amazonian region of Brazil. It is usually found in moist to wet mountain or lowland zones from sea level to 2,500 feet. USDA zones 10 - 11. Araceae


Anthurium scandens

Pearl Anthurium

Anthurium scandens


This cute aroid is widespread in its forest habitat from southern Mexico and the West Indies to southern Brazil and found from sea level to almost 9,000 feet in elevation. It's a creeping epiphyte with up to 2 inch dark green leaves and, at a young age, a profusion of waxy, white or faintly violet fruit (berries) that look like little pearls. It has small brown sheaths that cover the stems giving them a woody look and aerial roots along the stems that penetrate cracks in the bark of trees to help anchor and climb. As a container plant, it remains small and compact. Tolerates full sun, but is best in part shade. Perfect for growing in a terrarium. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae


Monstera adansonii

Swiss Cheese Plant

Monstera adansonii


New! With its unusual leaf structure this is a very popular climbing houseplant. The leaves are about 6 inches long showing off multiple holes, called fenestrations. Fast growing, it makes an impressive hanging basket or allow it to grow up a totem to display its unique leaves. Give it a rich, fast draining soil mix, humidity, and indirect light. In the tropics it can be allowed to grow up in the shade of a tree for an exotic jungle look. Often incorrectly sold as Monstera obliqua, which is another extremely rare Monstera and almost never sold. The juvenile growth stage was once thought to be a different species and was given the now invalid name of Monstera friedrichsthalii. Native to the Amazonian region of Peru, Ecuador and Brazil. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae


Philodendron camposportoanum

Philodendron camposportoanum


New! The small slightly velvety and glossy leaves on this rare philodendron start out heart shaped on a young plant, then produce leaves with upper lobes as the plant gets older, until at plant maturity the new leaves are deeply trilobed. These deep green leaves, reaching 8 to 12 inches in length, can take on a reddish brown color in brighter light. Give it a rich free draining potting mix with added perlite for best results. This fast growing vine is best in bright shade, avoiding direct sunlight. It is primarily a ground dweller in its native forest habitat in western Brazil and Bolivia. Outdoors in tropical climates allow it to climb or indoors grow it as a house plant with a totem.

Rhaphidophora korthalsii

(Syn.: Rhaphidophora celatocaulis, Pothos celatocaulis), Shingle Plant

Rhaphidophora korthalsii


Rare tropical climber with juvenile blue-green leaves held tightly together, overlapping like shingles. For many years, Rhaphidophora celatocaulis and Rhaphidophora korthalsii were thought to be two separate species, until the adult form with long-stalked, deeply cut adult leaves emerged. The juvenile leaves grow about 5 inches wide. Give large vertical space in shady area, where it can cling to the surface. Native to Borneo. USDA zones 10 - 12. Araceae


Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Green Goddess'

Green Goddess Calla Lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica Green Goddess


Green and white spathe with large green leaves. Araceae


Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Hercules' - Solid Green Leaf

Hercules Calla Lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica Hercules - Solid Green Leaf


A rare giant of the callas to 5 feet high with huge white flowers. We purchased this plant from Western Hills Nursery in Northern California 25 years ago. This form does not have spotted leaves. Western Hills also seems to have offered another form of 'Hercules' with spots on the leaves, which is the clone that the San Francisco Botanical Garden grows as 'Hercules'. We are now selling both of these clones.

Note: As these are young plants, it will probably take a couple of seasons to reach flowering size. It seems that climate has a lot to do with the eventual size of calla lilies. Those grown in the San Francisco Bay area usually grow much larger than the same variety grown in Southern California. Araceae


Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Spotted White Giant'

Spotted White Giant Calla Lily

Zantedeschia aethiopica Spotted White Giant


Leaves spotted and blotched with white. Pure white spathe. Beautiful large vigorous grower. This has more extensive spotting on glossier leaves, but does not grow quite as tall as the spotted variety of 'Hercules'. It has been found in specialty nurseries in California for at least 40 years. Its origin is unknown.

Note: As these are young plants, it will probably take a couple of seasons to reach flowering size. Araceae
