Plant Size Guide

The plant in the photos is an example and an approximate guide only however we try to show an average sized example. Sizes, flowering state and colours change throughout the seasons and variation will occur. In summer & autumn, plants are often larger or the same size as than the example picture but around winter and spring, they can be a little smaller but still at a size similar to the example. We aim to update the pictures to reflect significant differences.

Plant Heights - because the plant's foliage must fit inside our Plant Cartons, the actual height of a plant's central trunk (meristem) will be shorter than the box it fits in.

Small Plants - 14cm wide nursery pot - 1 Litre volume - Plants fit in a 50cm tall box.

Medium Plants -  17cm wide pots either 2L hanging pot or 2.5L nursery pot - Plants fit in a 75cm tall box.

Large Plants - 25cm wide pot, 10L volume. Plants fit in a 100cm tall box.

XL Plants - Plants over 100cm tall in pot sizes specified, 25cm/10L or greater and are hand delivered within Auckland/Northland only.

We may deliver at any time Sunday, Monday, Wednesday or Thursday in Auckland and you need to have a sheltered accessible position for us to deliver to.

Plants in Transit

Each Small, Medium & Large plant is individually contained within its own protective cardboard Plant Carton which may be joined to other cartons in your order.

Plants typically take just a day or two to arrive, however they are usually fine in their cartons for 1-2 weeks, and many can go longer, so a few extra days are not usually cause for concern.

Whether it takes 1 or 7 days, let your plant recover from its journey by placing in gentle light and adding a little water and it will be back to its best within a couple of days. Let us know if there are any major issues via the contact page.

Monstera

Thank you so much! I purchased a medium sized monstera for my mum for Mother’s Day and she absolutely loves it. The plant was way bigger than I thought it would be and there were so many leaves on there too. The plant was super healthy and just so beautiful. Delivery was quick and plant was unharmed on arrival which was so awesome. Price was so affordable too. She is now one happy monstera plant mumma 😆
