Ceropegia sandersonii

Parachute or Umbrella Plant



Ceropegia sandersonii

$9.95  

New! The common name of this small succulent vine refers to its flowers that are shaped somewhat like parachutes or umbrellas. The flowers are even more unusual in that they give off a scent to trap flies. As the flies slide down the flower tube to the base they get covered in pollen. The flies are released later, as the flower withers, to pollinate other parachute flowers. It's fairly easy to grow as a basket plant or in a dry terrarium in well-drained soil and bright light (not direct sunlight). Native to Mozambique, South Africa, and Swaziland.

Ficus elastica 'Variegata'

Variegated Indian Rubber Tree



Ficus elastica Variegata

$19.95  

New! The Variegated Rubber Plant has thick, light green leaves margined with various shades of creamy white. For a colorful contrast, new leaves appear with overtones of pink from bright red sheaths that cover the unopened leaves. In its native tropical Asia, this tree can reach an enormous height of over 100 feet with large buttresses and aerial roots. However for us, it makes an ideal specimen container plant, indoors or out, staying a manageable size for years. This is an easy houseplant, as long as it is not overwatered. Always let it dry out a bit between waterings and give it bright indirect light. Needs protection from frost. USDA zones 10 - 12. Moraceae

Hemigraphis alternata 'Exotica'

(Syn.: Hemigraphis colorata 'Exotica'), Purple Waffle Plant



Hemigraphis alternata Exotica

$9.95  

New! This is commonly called the "Purple Waffle Plant" because of its puckered waffle-like maroon leaves. Grow this colorful plant in hanging baskets, as a filler in containers, or as a ground cover in the tropics. Growing 6 to 9 inches high, it spreads widely as it stems root growing outward. It's best in part shade with moist soil. Although its minimum temperature is probably best above 50F, this cultivar has proven hardier to us than the common silvery Hemigraphis alternata ("Red Flame Ivy"), which does not have the puckered leaves. It can be grown as an annual in cold climates. Native to Malaysia. USDA zones 10 - 12. Acanthaceae

Kalanchoe beauverdii

(Syn.: Bryophyllum beauverdii), Beauverd's Widow's Thrill, False Hoya



Kalanchoe beauverdii

$9.95  

New! This is a very unusual kalanchoe that is sure to attract attention. It's one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe schizophylla. This succulent climber has gray wiry stems and green narrow leaves turning purple-black in high light with adventitious plantlets often forming on the leaf tips. Its hanging flowers are bell-shaped and rather large compared to the slender stems. Blooming in clusters, they are an unusual grayish green color with fine purple speckles. Flowering is in the winter and spring months. The wiry stems and hooked leaves help it vigorously scramble and twine upwards. It can swallow surrounding plants if not pruned to keep it under control. So it is best to grow it on a trellis to 8 feet or in a hanging basket where it can be allowed to cascade. Grow in full sun or bright shade and allow it to get dry between waterings. It generally likes warmth with dry cool frost-free winters. It's native to south and southwestern Madagascar, where it is found in dry shrub-land forests from sea level up to 2,750 feet in elevation. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe manginii

(Syn.: Bryophyllum manginii), Chandelier Plant, Beach Bells



Kalanchoe manginii

$11.95  

New! This succulent plant displays spoon-shaped glossy green fleshy leaves, turning reddish in full sun, with trailing red-tinged stems. It blooms in late winter or early spring with dangling clusters of salmon-red 1 inch bell-shaped flowers. Growing up to 12 inches tall and wide, it makes an easy to grow ideal hanging basket. It also can be grown as an epiphyte, as it does in its native Madagascar. Best grown in a bright sunny location with protection from the midday sun in well-drained potting soil. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae

Kalanchoe schizophylla

(Syn.: Bryophyllum schizophyllum)



Kalanchoe schizophylla

$11.95  

New! This is a very curious kalanchoe, as it is one of the few climbing species along with Kalanchoe beauverdii. Its smooth leaves are deeply cut with a fern-like appearance turning orangish in bright light. It climbs by means of its hook-like finely divided mature leaves. The stems are thin curling up to 12 feet or more in length. The seldom seen inflorescence consists of pendulous, bell-shaped lavender-grey flowers in spring to summer. It seems to be given to vegetative growth so that flowering is rare, especially if frequent pruning has been necessary. The variable leaves are very decorative and the plants are easy to grow. In its native Madagascar it is a hemiepiphyte (seedlings growing in the canopy as an epiphyte, later with roots growing down into the ground). It is found in rocky and shady brush in central Madagascar from 3 to 5 thousand feet in elevation. All parts are toxic, a rarity in the family Crassulaceae. Give it bright shade with extra humidity, well-drained potting soil and water sparingly. Grow it as an epiphyte, in a hanging basket, or as an interesting climber on a trellis. Intolerant of frost. Crassulaceae

Monstera adansonii

Swiss Cheese Plant



Monstera adansonii

$22.95  

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
