New Year, New Plants

by Plant Care, Plants, Uncategorized

Now that all the holiday decor is put away for another year and the snow is lightly falling on the ground, we are all feeling a need for a little green in our lives.

January is actually one of the busiest plant months of the year for us!

We just received a large shipment last week and the store is bursting with different types of tropical plants from micans to monsteras, pothos to philodendrons, and citrus to calathea.

We have pulled together our TOP SEVEN plants that have arrived to tell you about!

  • Philodendron selloum
  • Ficus lyrata
  • Philodendron micans
  • Hoya
  • Citrus
  • Jasmine
  • Ponytail palm

Philodendron micansThe ficus lyrata and philodendrons continue to be two of the most popular choices in the shop. Both are fairly easy to care for with bright light and watering once every 10 to 12 days or so for a large plant and more frequently for a smaller pot.

Philodendron micans seem to be a more of a newcomer onto the plant scene recently. If you look closely, you can see the light variegated in the leaves and the suede like texture to the top part of the leaf. They thrive in bright, indirect sunlight.

hoyas

With over 200 different varieties of Hoyas, this plant has taken a special place in our hearts. They are one of the easiest slow growing plants that thrive in bright, indirect sunlight with minimal watering. You would be surprised how much a Hoya can grow over time in such a small container. And when these babies bloom, the fragrance is intoxicating!

 

 

citrus plants

Speaking of heavenly fragrance, you have to check out our selection of citrus. From the Lemon Meyer to the Calamandon, these beauties will transport you to the Amalfi coast in no time. With bright sun and a good natural fertilizer, these beauties will reward you with an abundance of usable fruit that you will be bragging about to anyone and everyone!

 

 

Jasmine plant

 

Want more fragrance? Check out the delicate blooms on these pretty Jasmine plants. Again, these lovelies thrive in a bright spot and make sure to not let them sit in water with soggy feet. Jasmine are happy outdoors in the summer as well and will show off their heavenly fragrant blooms all summer long.

 

 

ponytail palm

And finally, how adorable are these little Ponytail palms? Don’t you feel like you could curl up underneath it with a frosty tropical drink and read the day away? These little guys fly out of the shop as soon as they arrive. Very easy to take care of. The water is stored in the trunk of the plant and requires minimal watering, once every couple of weeks or so. Keep them in their plastic growers pot with good drainage in the base and do not let them sit in water.

We are receiving new varieties of plants every week or two and are always so excited to share with you.

We try to show these beauties off on both Facebook and Instagram but there is nothing like coming into the shop and seeing them all for yourself.

Let me know if there are particular plants that you are looking for, and we would be more than happy to be on the look out for you!
