1x Pink Princess Philodendron
Highlighter pink variegation is highlighted against brooding dark green-black leaves in this royal climber. Provide a warm, humid space with bright indirect light - but no direct sun. Give your Pink Princess a support while it is small then let it climb a moss pole or fern fibre pole once it is big enough to fit into a larger pot.
1x Black Gold Philodendron melanochrysum
Big black velvety leaves that reach 70cm long when mature? Yes please. This is a must have plant in any collection and it only gets better as it gets bigger, but how to get those big mature adult leaves? Trick it into thinking its a grown up. Provide a bright room with plenty of humidty and let it climb up a support pole. Once the melanochrysum gets to the top, take a cutting of the top few nodes and re-root that segment with the tip facing up. The philodendron Black Gold will get thicker and produce bigger and bigger leaves. Rinse & Repeat across the seasons until you've got a big black monster in the living room.
1x Gold Violin Philodendron
Bold gold new growth emerges from this large fast growing philodendron and rests as lime. As above, provide a warm humid space with bright indirect light and a support as it grows up.
1x Tricolour Ctenanthe oppenheimiana
This colourful clumping ctenanthe plant defies its pretty appearance, normally associated with fussiness, and is actually quite a robust plant and easy to care for, however, there's an art to going beyond a plant surviving to getting it thriving. Find the right position that is a balance between a warm, bright light and a spot that doesn't get so warm the soil or air dries too quickly. The trick is to cluster with other thirsty plants in a bright room like the kitchen or living room. Plants transpire moisture through their leaves and in the right draft-free space, this creates a microclimate that all houseplants benefit from. You can also create a humidity tray where the drip tray is full of water but the pot is above it resting on pebbles. Like humans, the first part of life is higher maintenance part so once your plant is big, it will be easier to care for because it will store moisture and carbohydrates in its rhizomes and become more self-reliant.
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.

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.
