Anthurium scandens

Pearl Anthurium



Anthurium scandens

$13.95  

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

Ceropegia sandersonii

Parachute or Umbrella Plant



Ceropegia sandersonii

$9.95  

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.

Peperomia prostrata

This is a favorite miniature plant that creeps along the ground creating a dense mat. It can even climb up a small support. The tiny ½ inch round succulent leaves have a mottled pattern of lighter green veins. Great for a hanging basket, terrarium, vivarium, small dish garden, or shingling up a damp moss pole. It prefers moderate bright shade, moisture, and humid conditions. It won't tolerate waterlogged soils, so water lightly when the soil is dry and give it gritty, well-drained soil. Roots as it spreads and is fairly fast growing with a height of about 1 inch. Native to Brazilian rainforests where it is often found growing on trees and rocks as an epiphyte. USDA zones 9 - 11. Sometimes confused with Peperomia rotundifolia, which is a different species with all green leaves. During shipping a few leaves may drop off since they break easily but will quickly regrow. So, be extra careful unpacking. (B, M, T, F, H) Piperaceae
