Our houseplants department are always getting lots of new arrival, here are just a few from this week.
We have a great selection of Calathea in store in a few different varieties and sizes.
Calathea is a genus of plants belonging to the family Marantaceae. There are several dozen species in this genus. Native to the tropical Americas, many of the species are popular as pot plants due to their decorative leaves and, in some species, colourful inflorescences.
Calathea have very expressive foliage, and will make it obvious when they’re thirsty by curling up their leaves into little rolls. Don’t worry–it’s just letting you know it needs a drink. Calathea bounce back very quickly from underwatering.
Cacti are now a very common houseplant. They come in a vast range of shapes and sizes from small to large. We have some very unusual cacti in store and is one of the most popular plants from our houseplant department.
Cacti thrive with good light sources, and it is best to place cacti in a bright place and water every few weeks.
Oxalis triangularis ‘Atropurpurea‘ has a wide black edge to each purple leaf, while Oxalis ‘Mijke’ is missing the edge. The overall effect is a much brighter purple plant. From late spring through summer, the clumps are topped with mauve flowers held just above the foliage. Also known as Purple Leaf False Shamrock
Monstera are species of evergreen tropical vines/shrubs that are native to Central America. Monsteras are famous for their natural leaf-holes, and has led to the rise of its nickname, Swiss Cheese Plant.
Thrives in bright to medium indirect light. Not suited for intense, direct sun. Water weekly. Allow potting mix to dry out before watering. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth.
We have many sizes of Monstera available
