Plantsome BC Bol Collection Feed Plantsome BC bol-collection-feed 4572493742162 Maranta Leuconeura | Red Prayer Plant (S) Amalia Amalia used to work on Wall Street, but saw enough of it to conclude there's no fun in funds. Nowadays she's teaches meditation and spends days all by herself in the woods, with her hands to her heart, treating thoughts like clouds in the sky. Namaste! One thing Amalia taught us was to be open-minded and paying attention to change. Which is why, if you take her home and treat her well, she will surprise you with leaves of different colours, and veins that will also have different tones. Oh yeah, and don't forget the undersides; those too will be in different colours! Amalia is a Prayer Plant or Maranta Leuconeura if you're playing Scrabble. Cool fact: Prayer plants close their beautiful leaves at night. It makes them look as if they are praying! 10 20 Regular Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Repot once every year Fertilize from spring through fall https://plantsome.ca/products/maranta-leuconeura-prayer-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PrayerPlant4inpelle.png?v=1587574199 4668511551570 Monstera Adansonii (S) | Monkey Mask Abab If Abab was a person, he'd be an angry short seller who's always yelling profanities into his phone to whoever's on the other line (and just lost a million bucks because of him). We like plant Abab much better, with his glossy green leaves and distinctive fenestrations (a fancy word for holes). But if Abab got his way we’d ship him off to New York and put him in a corner office with a bunch of traders and brokers shouting “Sell, sell, sell!” and hurling insults that would make even some presidents blush. There’s now a rumour going around the Plantsome office that he once tried to sell cuttings of his bigger brother Alfredo. The fact that Eileen outed him is Abab’s deepest regret, that and not being planted before bitcoin was a thing. Abab is a swiss cheese plant with drooping, heart shaped leaves. They're beautiful trailing plants that grow quickly when taken care of properly. You'll find Adansonii's like Abab growing naturally in South and Central America and the West Indies, but Abab never fit in with his siblings. All they could ever agree on was that indirect light is best. For Abab living the fast life on Wall Street is where he really belongs. And you know what, we can't blame him.  I t's a jungle out there! 10 19 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-adansonii-s-monkey-mask http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Monsteraadansonii4inpot.png?v=1610493718 4739113156690 Tradescantia Nanouk (S) Willie You might call Willie a vagrant or a vagabond. Perhaps you’d even throw around the word “homeless”, if you’re getting technical. Willie himself prefers the terms “nomad” and “wanderer”. He and his sister Sylvie may have different outlooks on life, he likes to keep his roots in the soil and she has her head in the clouds, but they’re both travellers at heart who are, like, totally ready to, like, find themselves. Rumour has it Willie’s suuuper chill. He only needs to be watered once a week and placed in indirect sunlight. Any effort will be highly rewarded because Willie makes a stunning houseplant, with a wonderful spray of purple leaves. He might be on the smaller side but that doesn’t mean he isn’t one daring, dashing, dapper Tradescantia Nanouk. Sheesh, talk about a tongue twister. Who writes these things? 10 20 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-nanouk-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/TradescantieNanouk4inpot.png?v=1609956485 4524312002642 Peperomia Obtusifolia | Marble (S) Pablo Our Brazillian Pablo is a real chill dude who doesn't require a lot of attention. He is kind to pets and will clean your air every day. The Preperomia Obtusfolia is the perfect pet companion! Woof! The Brazillian Pablo is a real lover of life. He is easily satisfied, a real minimalist we should say. This also makes him a perfect gift. With Pablo you can't really go wrong. His succulently thick and bright green colored leaves will spruce up your home like nothing else. In Brazil, the Peperomia plant is known to be gifted as a sign that 'everything will be alright'. What a great mantra to live by. 10 16 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-obtusfolia-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Newbabypepobtusfolia.png?v=1609956153 4698503577682 Maranta Leuconeura | Lemon Lime Prayer Plant (S) Amin Amin used to work on Wall Street, but saw enough of it to conclude there's no fun in funds. Nowadays he teaches meditation in some A-frame cabin in the woods somewhere. With his hands folded and his legs curled, treating thoughts like clouds in the sky. Namaste! One thing Amin taught us was to be open-minded and paying attention to change. Which is why, if you take him home and treat him well, he'll surprise you with leaves and veins so colourful it will make your eyes pop! Oh yeah, and don't forget the undersides; those too will be in different colours! Amin is a Prayer Plant or Maranta Leuconeura if you're into Latin names.

If that's too technical: Kaa is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Kaa and you'll have a happy plant! Kaa also doesn't mind being put in a shaded spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Kaa does not need any plant food. Gosh, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Kaa can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Kaa is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Kaa doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Kaa hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Kaa really popular. Kaa purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juisssssss (imitates snake sound). 15 45 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-laurentii-snake-plant-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaLaurentii6inpot.png?v=1609956402 4581872140370 Calathea Lancifolia | Rattlesnake (S) Indy Just like her sisters, Sophia is a part of the Calathea Family and originates from Brazil. To be precise, Sophia is a Medallion. Her massive leaves makes her massively good at cleaning the air. Sophia is kind to pets and small children and loves long walks in the sun. With some sun and some shade she's at her best. What's truly remarkable about her is the closing of her leaves at sundown and the opening at sunrise. She welcomes the world with open leaves every day. What a great example for all of us just-one-more-minute snoozers. Chuck and Sophia older brother, Indy left the house early to become an archaeologist. He scoured the riverbanks along the Amazon river in search for long lost settlements with hidden treasures. He's told us many harrowing stories! Apparently, the patterns on his beautiful foliage can be read as scripture that holds the key to a sacred temple filled with gold and diamonds! We just can't crack the code.

He doesn't need a lot of looking after and grows slowly. Some have luck, some have Luke! Luke is also slightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Besides those little quirks, Luke is pretty laid back and handles himself well in most environments. Luke is a stylish and strong guy. This African Zamioculcas is an easygoing guy that will not bother you for a while. It doesn't matter much to him where you put him and he's almost never thirsty. Lucas is the perfect gift for the starting houseplant lover. Other plants are actually quite jealous of Luke, but it doesn't bother him much. Lucas is waaaaay to chill for those jealous looks. Other plants just don't "Luke" as good. 15 40 Frequent Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-m-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/newzamipot.png?v=1609956543 4566343974994 Ficus Tineke | Rubber Tree (S) Heidi According to NASA, Heidi takes a top-10 spot when it comes to air purifying power. Which is just stellar. Heidi told us she was recruited to be part of the mission to the moon, but that sounds a lot like fairy tale to us. She showed us a picture - it looks photoshopped, so we won't show that here. We know: Heidi's gonna hate, but what can you do? Either way, air purifying is still a pretty cool superpower, and Heidi is the real deal. What are you waiting for? Don't get hasty, get Heidi! Heidi is a special Ficus. She looks so much bigger for her age! It must be those beautiful variegated leaves that she grows. Those colours really POP girl! Heidi is one of those plants that really loves to give back, providing you with amazing fresh living room air in return for a bit of H2-EAU. An exchange that we here like to call a love-Heidi relationship. 10 17 Average Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every 3 years Once a month (spring & summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-rubber-tineke-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusRubberVariagata4inwebpot.png?v=1587574153 4566757474386 Calathea Medallion (M) Sophia Just like her sisters, Sophia is a part of the Calathea Family and originates from Brazil. To be precise, Sophia is a Medallion. Her massive leaves makes her massively good at cleaning the air. Sophia is kind to pets and small children and loves long walks in the sun. With some sun and some shade she's at her best. What's truly remarkable about her is the closing of her leaves at sundown and the opening at sunrise. She welcomes the world with open leaves every day. What a great example for all of us just-one-more-minute snoozers. Sophia told us she once posed to be in one of Manet's paintings. Were sceptical although why not? With a striking canopy and bag full of tricks Sophia really is quite stunning and special. When she's ready for bed she closes those beautiful leaves and when she's thirsty they curl up. So much drama! And the theatrics don't end there. Sophia is picky and will want just the right amount of water and a bright spot away from direct sunlight. Can you handle it? 15 35 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-medallion-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaMedallion6inpot.png?v=1609955496 4524312756306 Dracaena Janet Craig Compacta (S) Mojo What the heck does Mojo even mean? Mojo is an African word that describes inner power. Your swag, your shine, your sparkle, you know? What's Mojo's inner power, you ask? Well, he's super duper good at purifying the air, which will help you with a happy and healthy fresh room! Harmful substances such as Benzenes better hide when Mojo's around because he'll attack them straight on. Mojo is a feisty one, behold! He's also lightly poisonous, so repeat after me: with pets a go-go, Mojo is a no-no from the get-go. In Africa, this tough Dracaena actually has to make do with a pretty tough environment. Thus, it's no surprise that Mojo can easily flourish with little light. He also likes to brag that he can reach heights of up to 15 feet where he comes from. Worry not, Mojo won't go supersize on you in his pot. However, if you repot him frequently there is almost no stopping him. This one will never lose its Mojo. 10 20 Little water needed Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-compacta-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/dracjanetcraigbabywithpot.png?v=1609955651 4618615586898 Pilea Peperomioides | Pancake Plant (S) Penny We first met Penny in Vegas. It was 3am and we were working our way through a full stack of buttermilk pancakes at one of those 24 hour joints just off the strip. She was in one of the booths at the back of the room conducting a little off-license gambling operation - playing a shell game. She was so charming and smooth we fell for her immediately. As fast as you can say "flapjack" she had cleaned us out completely. That's OK, caveat emptor right? She is a money plant after all! What a delightful plant Penny is! Her big pancake shaped leaves remind you of Happy Faces and happy times. She is an easy plant to care for and grow. Just keep her well watered (her roots don't like to dry out) and in a nice bright spot and she will grow lots of new Pennies. That's right, it is super easy to propagate Penny so you can give good luck Pennies to friends and they can do the same and so on, and so on... 10 20 Frequent Low air purifying Bright spot, no direct sunlight Non-toxic Every two years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/pilea-peperomioides-pancake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pancake4infrancotwotone.png?v=1609956096 4700320432210 Scindapsus Pictus | Satin Pothos (S) Miley Miley is the type that loves to just hang around. In tropical forests you'll find her chilling under the canopy of large trees so she is used to low light environments. That's great because the corner spot on the window sill is usually already taken up by your other plants (or plans for plants), right!? Its not common to see a plant so stunning that is yet so easy to care for but Miley is definitely one of them. She's a great hanging plant but will do just fine in a regular pot as well. Her leaves have an almost 'satin' feel to them and her silver spots are a sight to behold. We commend her almost daily when we walk into the office here at Plantsome. Yep, she's a stunner and she knows it. "I can't help it, they grow on my leaves naturally." You grow girl! 10 16 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/scindapsus-pictus-satin-pothos-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SatinPothos4inpot.png?v=1609956290 4740540792914 Coffea Arabica | Coffee Plant (S) Gino Gino is a coffee addict. Gino always sticks his leaf up when we make the rounds for coffee in the office. Gino's not a big eater though. Mist his leaves every now and then to keep him happy. Just water though, leave the milk :). If you're kind to him he will reward you with your very own home brew. Gino originates from Tanzania and his love for coffee is big. Coffee dates are totally his thing and Gino's weapon of choice is the cappucino. With his beautiful glowing green leaves combed backwards Gino is ready to win over many a woman's heart. Gino is part of the Coffea Arabica family which is known to be the largest contributor to coffee beans in the world. 10 30 Average Light air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every two years Once per month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/coffea-arabica-coffee-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Coffeplant4inpott.png?v=1609955572 4564795785298 Aloe Vera (S) Vera Vera is that fit, healthy #spinningclassat6AM friend we all have. You know, the one that's on a KETO diet and looks at you funny when you order a creamy donut as a side to your eggs benny. While we go about living our best life, Vera is living her fittest life and we have to admit, she's looking pretty darn good. All those workouts have given her a little bit of a prickly character but thats ok. Nothing that a chocolate bar can't fix. Oh wait...We didn't mean that Vera... Vera? Vera! The Aloe Vera plant is actually part of the succulent family which means Vera has very little need for water. Succulents store water in their stems, roots or leaves. Saving it for a not-so-rainy-day shall we say? Anyway. we think it's a pretty neat trick since all we have is that pesty water bottle we keep forgetting. Vera is also extremely difficult to kill. It's probably the Kung-Fu classes... And a hard worker too! She's putting those looks and muscles to work for you by purifying your air. No wonder this versatile plant was popular among the likes of Cleopatra and Alexander the Great. Talk about a legacy! 10 25 Little Strong air purifier Partial shade Toxic!

Let's just say cultural sensitivity in the 70's wasn't what it is today. Well, Alocasia Amazonica or Tiki is kinda similar - she's not from the Amazon at all - but was created in a Florida nursery in the 50's by crossing A. longiloba and A. sanderiana. And to top it off many people feel they have been cursed by bad luck when they realize how difficult it can be to look after these plants. Oh, Tiki! Tiki's striking appearance is what makes her so popular. Those long, dark leaves with creamy white veins can grow to up to 40 cm in length. When Tiki is happy she is an absolute stunner but keeping her happy can be a challenge. She likes lots and lots (and lots and lots) of bright, indirect sunlight - as much as she can get. And keep her away from drafts, no one wants to catch a cold these days and the same is true for Tiki! Like a lot of tropicals water is important - her soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. If you are really good to her, Tiki will reward your efforts by flowering. Thank you Tiki! 10 25 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic!

What they're all taking about are Indy's leaf markings, which, you guessed it, make him super distinctive. Cute and badass at the same time! An enviable combo. Chuck and Sophia's older brother, Indy, left the house early to become an archaeologist. He scoured the riverbanks along the Amazon river in search for long lost settlements with hidden treasures. He's told us many harrowing stories!

This pretty lady is called Dottie and she was born and raised on the beautiful Island of madagascar. She is at her best in a more humid climate so its best to keep her inside where its nice and warm. Play her some Kalinka and watch her grow! It's poppy's spotty and colourful leaves that 'leave' many plant gazers starstruck. These little leaves are are a real showstopper but truth be told, Poppy is actually quite shy. And if you thought her spots are special have a look at the beautiful red color underneath her leaves. 10 13 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 3-5 years Once a month during spring, summer, and fall https://plantsome.ca/products/polka-dot-white-hypoestes-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PolkaDotWhite4inpot.png?v=1609955908 4526812889170 Coffea Arabica | Coffee Plant (M) Gino Gino is a coffee addict.

You see, Sri is a master Yogi. And he's mastered the pose of the 'crinkle leaf' so well that it has become a permanent pose! All stretching and bending aside, we think those crinkly leaves look hella cute and make for a perfect backdrop when those beautiful Hoya leaves are in bloom. Wouldn't you agree? So you are wondering what the deal is with those Hoya plants everyone is raving about? Well let us tell you: these magnificent green amigos are capable of producing some pretty amazing flowers (if you are kind to them, and incredibly patient). This Hoya Hindu Rope is no exception! Flowering could take up to two years but the result is stunning. If you want yours to flower, keep the humidity at over 40%, fertilize regularly in spring and summer and water thoroughly when the soil has dried out about a third of the way through.

The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Mia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying shotgun in her sister's Lockheed Vega, but they are both retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Mia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Mia known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. 10 15 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-pothos-marble-queen-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MarbleQueenPothos4inpot.png?v=1609956272 4543306989650 Ficus Lyrata Bambino | Fiddle Leaf Fig (S) Evelyn This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Evelyn is Eileen's sister. And boy do these Fiddle Leaf Figs like to party. Evelyn is all about that Jazz but she doesn't shy away from pop or rock songs either.

They are quite fast growing and moisture-wicking, which makes for high humidity. Good for Baloo, good for you! Banana plants contain about 80% water. Needless to say, Baloo is a thirsty roommate and really adores the sun! So pick a bright spot and... go bananas! When we met Baloo and for the first time we couldn't help but ask him where he got his name. He told us that, when he was little, a beary good friend roamed the Jungle with him. Together they had the best time. He is now named after him. We had no idea what he was talking about but it doesn't matter. Baloo makes us really happy and we're sure he will make you happy too! 15 45 A lot of water Light air purifying Bright direct light Non-toxic Once every two years Every other week (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/small-musa-dwarf-cavendish-banana-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Musa_dwarf_web_in_jimmy.png?v=1584033983 4568744427602 Calathea Medallion (S) Sophia Jr. Just like her sisters, Sophia is a part of the Calathea Family and originates from Brazil. To be precise, Sophia is a Medallion. Her massive leaves makes her massively good at cleaning the air. Sophia is kind to pets and small children and loves long walks in the sun. With some sun and some shade she's at her best. What's truly remarkable about her is the closing of her leaves at sundown and the opening at sunrise. She welcomes the world with open leaves every day. What a great example for all of us just-one-more-minute snoozers. Sophia told us she once posed to be in one of Manet's paintings. Were sceptical although why not? With a striking canopy and bag full of tricks Sophia really is quite stunning and special. When she's ready for bed she closes those beautiful leaves and when she's thirsty they curl up. So much drama! And the theatrics don't end there. Sophia is picky and will want just the right amount of water and a bright spot away from direct sunlight. Can you handle it? 10 15 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-medallion-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Medallion4inpot.png?v=1609955492 4771781967954 Peperomia Hope (S) Zoe Zoe is fascinated with those little things in life that make us happy. She wakes up every morning to watch the sunrise, prefers to have breakfast in bed and starts her day with yoga. Zoe is a laid-back, cheery plant that brightens up everyone's day at the office. She is so positive that from time to time, we need to tell her to stop playing "All You Need is Love" on repeat. Zoe is a true dreamer, no doubt! As an optimist, Zoe expects that you treat her well. But as a semi-succulent, she understands that life happens sometimes, and you just forget about the whole watering thing for a little while. Just don't make it a habit ;) This Peperomia Hope, a.k.a Zoe, can thrive in moderate to low light conditions and is non-toxic to pets, which makes her perfect for new plant parents. She's also a great air purifier. Seriously, can someone tell us what's not to like about Zoe? Someone?

The pro at filtering for fresh air, Jack is on that famous list of the top-ten best air purifiers according to NASA. And let's just clear the air for a moment here, good air means good vibes! Some say that Jack will help boost your creativity, stamina, reaction speed and neural development. A Jack of all trades! Jack is a Ficus Robusta Burgundy which, if you ask us, really is one of the most modern looking plants that money can buy. Jack looks good in any room setting. We have a Jack in the office and we love it. His leaves are tall, firm and have a beautiful deep color. Jack is originally from the rainforest of South-East Asia. He told us he visited Thailand, Malaysia and India during a recent back packing trip. Last year he was spotted jacking around in the South-America as well. A real globetrotter. 10 25 Average Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every 3 years Once a month (spring & summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-tineke-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ficus4inchwebinpelle.png?v=1587574151 4566356787282 Epipremnum Aureum | Pothos Gold (M) Amelia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Amelia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying the skies in her Lockheed Vega, but she's retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Amelia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Amelia's known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. Obey that and she'll look like Amelian dollars. 15 32 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-aureum-pothos-gold http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/pothosgold6inhanging.png?v=1609956265 4524304662610 Peperomia Orba Astrid (S) Pablo Our Brazillian Pablo is a real chill dude who doesn't require a lot of attention. He is kind to pets and will clean your air every day. The Preperomia Orbs is the perfect pet companion! Woof! The Brazillian Pablo is a real lover of life. He is easily satisfied, a real minimalist we should say. This also makes him a perfect gift. With Pablo you can't really go wrong. His succulently thick and bright green colored leaves will spruce up your home like nothing else. In Brazil, the Peperomia plant is known to be gifted as a sign that 'everything will be alright'. What a great mantra to live by. 10 16 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-orba-astrid-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/miniAstridPeperomiawebpot.png?v=1609956130 4707003400274 Hoya Pubicalyx | Porcelain Flower (S) Reza Variegated leaves, CHECK! Beautiful flowers, CHECK! Easy to care for plant, CHECK! Need we say more? Reza is just a no-brainer plant that everyone should aspire to own and we're not saying that because we bought a few to many! Fun fact: the Hoya was named by a botanist in the 19th century in honour of his friend Thomas Hoy. Talking about taking your friendships to the next level! Hoya's are b(l)ooming and for good reason! These beautiful and easy to care for tropicals have stunning flowers, if you are a patient plant parent that is. There is a big chance that it may take two or three years before your Hoya will show its most prized possession but oh, oh the delight when you first find these pretty flowers nestled in between the leaves. Its a sight to behold! We've named this Hoya Publicalyx 'Reza which means 'hope' and we sure hope that he'll bring you some beautiful blooms! 10 19 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-publicalyx-porcelain-flower-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hoyapublicalyxpot.png?v=1609955896 4704825638994 Monstera Deliciosa (M) | Swiss Cheese Plant Alfredo Alfredo is a Monstera Deliciosa which is commonly referred to as a Swiss Cheese Plant, Swiss Cheese Vine and Five holes plant. All these names gave Alfredo a bit of an identity crisis. To top it all off, botanists once lumped him in with the wrong family! Fortunately the record has been set straight and we know he's part of the Monstera family. It was all very stressful for Alfredo so we've agreed not to bring it up to him again. Can you help us keep that promise? Buenas dias Alfredo! The Monstera Deliciosa is naturally found in Mexico. So lock away your mezcal and hide the guac! Ha, just kidding but seriously though, Alfredo is nacho average joe. Alfredo is a climber so keep an eye on those leaves or he'll just start wandering off! Alfredo is blessed with beautiful leaves that when grown bigger, eventually become full of holes that you'll find in most Swiss Cheese plants. Alfredo loves the sun but tranquilo por favor with direct sunlight. Be nice to Alfredo and he will show you some real Mexican character.

Remember back in grade 5, you were sitting in the back of the class and there was that girl in the second row, the one with two giant braids, mischievous eyes and rosy cheeks? You would sit there and dream about her all day long thinking you were going to get married and have kids and a dog and a house in the burbs... Well that girl is Kate and today she runs an ink shop down on the Drive. She is married to Lori and was elected to the Parks Board last year. We love Kate because she defies convention and makes sh*t happen. Go Kate! What's not to love about a plant that has irresistible heart-shaped leaves? Kate is a vine so she can grow as a trailing/hanging plant or as a climbing plant depending on your tastes. Furthermore Kate is a jungle plant so she loves warm, humid environments and bright, filtered sun but no direct light - think of all of those jungle plants lliving under the shade of the giant jungle trees. If Kate's vines grow too long don't be afraid to trim them back, that will help her to fill out a little more. 10 14 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-cordatum-s-heartleaf http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/heartleafcordatum4inpot.png?v=1609956192 4735059099730 Calathea Makoyana | Peacock Plant (S) Leandro This stunning Brazilian dude is ready to elevate your home to a whole new level of glam. To look the way he does, Leandro spends hours at the gym every single day. We are kind of obssessed to be honest. Those incredible glossy, strong, manicured leaves resemble the looks of an Olympian God. He's just impeccably handsome! Gosh! Leandro has beautiful dark and pale green leaves that make him spectacular. This Peacock plant is used to the exotic, tropical weather of Rio de Janeiro, so he expects that you place him somewhere with constant high humidity. Placing a bowl with water near Leandro is nice. Also, let those muscles grow by making sure that Leandro enjoys low to moderate sunlight and a well-moist soil.  Obrigado! 10 20 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-makoyana-peacock-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaMakoyana4inpot.png?v=1609955488 4602400899154 Ficus Lyrata (M) Eileen Eileen has like a million followers on instagram. Yep you heard it, Eileen is instafamous. She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves always get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Eileen is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Eileen, or the Ficus Lyrata, is commonly referred to as a Fiddle Leaf Fig. Get it? Fiddle...Leaf...Fig. On Saturday nights you'll find her at underground deep house dance clubs but on Sunday she loves to put on the jazzy tunes. But don't shy away from pop songs either. Let her listen to your favourite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She loves those too! Go Eileen! 15 40 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic to pets Every 1-2 years Every time you water (except in winter) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-lyrata-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusLyrata6inpot.png?v=1609955791 4602380484690 Crassula | Jade Plant (S) Wendy So you think you can dance? Wait until you see Wendy. She first became famous in her native South Africa where she went viral with TikTok moves no one could copy. Wendy really puts the 'sun' in Sunday with her love of sunshine and light. She's low maintenance while still being the star of the show on your south-facing window sill. Such a bright gal! Wendy is real popular in South Africa where she grows in abundance. Wendy is a hardcore succulent, which means she has a badass superpower: she. is. TOUGH. Forgot to water her for a few weeks? Wendy shrugs it off like its no big deal. Accidentally put her in the fridge? No biggie. Left her at the tanning salon? She can handle it. Wendy is a roommate that will never ask you to turn the music down or warn you that you're eating too many carbs. Easy like a Sunday morning! 10 15 Little Light air purifying Direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once a year Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/crassula-jade-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Jade4inpelle.png?v=1609955936 4566325395538 Neanthebella | Parlour Palm (M) Vicky When all of your brothers and sisters are big and burly, you have to do something to stand out. Vicky's got attitude in spades. This girl will want you to give her the primo spot at the window sill and won't settle for anything less. She relegates cacti and succulents to kitchens and side tables and is not impressed by the big monstera in the corner. This parlour palm is here to stay and she wants all your other green amigos to know it, too! Vicky literally fits in the palm of your hand and isn't she a cutie! Vicky's native lands are Mexico and Guatemala but don't worry, she's very comfortable in Canadian households. In fact, the Parlour Palm as Vicky's called in regular parlance, has been a popular choice in homes all over the world since the Victorian age! How Vicky has been able to maintain her popularity for so long remains a mystery but we think it has something to do with that fantastic foliage. You grow girl! 15 40 Regular Strong air purifier Bright indirect light Pet friendly Once every year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/neanthebella-parlour-palm-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NeanthebellaPalmwebcocorevised.png?v=1609956105 4704816562258 Calathea White Fusion (S) Paris Anyone who knows Paris will tell you she is a diva. But don't let that hold you back! Paris will rock your world with her incomparable ravishing looks. Even though Paris left Beverly Hills to come to BC, her glamorous lifestyle still persists. When Paris isn't enjoying a fancy happy hour at Yaletown or doing daily indoor cycling in Kitsilano, Paris likes to go to the best Instagrammable places BC has to offer. She's told us Joffrey Lakes and Garibaldi Lake are at the top of her bucket list, but "OMG" she must go early in the morning because apparently Paris can very get picky with crowds. Oh Paris... Yep, you guessed it. Paris is not the easiest plant to take care of, but she may well be one of the best-looking gals you've ever seen. So, here's our take: she's sooo worth it! Her beautiful marbled foliage with multiple shades of green, gorgeous white markings and purple undersides are honestly ethereal! Keep up with her demands by making sure you place her somewhere that is moderately humid and with filtered sunlight. Also, Paris can get fussy about what she drinks because "ughh tap water minerals", so you can try to alternate between tap and filtered water to prevent brown tips on the leaves—allowing the top of her soil dry up to 1" between waterings. 10 15 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-white-fusion-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Calathea4inpot.png?v=1609955532 4703744327762 Calathea Ornata (S) | Pinstripe Pink Pink always wants to go for drinks and party hard. Weekends or workdays, it don't matter much to her! And she doesn't discriminate either. You'll find her in underground dance clubs one day and an upscale jazz bar the next. She tends to bring an entourage of Calathea sisters everywhere she goes that is sure to draw a crowd. So if you're thinking of bringing her home, be prepared to meet her sisters too! Pink is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Julia, Brooke, Sophia and Susie. In fact, this pretty lady's got something not many plants have, pink stripes! But don't be fooled, it is hard work getting her to put those big beautiful leaves out. Just like any rock star there is a list of demands: a bright spot, no direct sunlight, regular misting of the leaves, fertilizer in summer and a little bit of water at just the right time! Fortunately she's a great communicator and will furl up her leaves to tell you she's thirsty!  10 18 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-calathea-ornata-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaOrnata4inpot.png?v=1609955509 4695630020690 Sansevieria Laurentii | Snake Plant (S) Kaa Kaa is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Kaa is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Kaa and you'll have a happy plant! Kaa also doesn't mind being put in a shaded spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Kaa does not need any plant food. Gosh, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Kaa can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Kaa is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Kaa doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Kaa hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Kaa really popular. Kaa purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juisssssss (imitates snake sound). 10 21 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-laurentii-snake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaLaurentii4inpot.png?v=1609956400 4740716396626 Epipremnum Aureum | Pothos Gold (S) Amelia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Amelia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying the skies in her Lockheed Vega, but she's retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Amelia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time.

When she works out she purifies the air for you so it's a win for Lilly and a win for you. Her air purifying qualities come mostly from the size of her leaves. She loves to produce oxygen with it but they also work to extract harmful substances from the air. In return for all this magic she does require some love and attention. You can have years of fun with Lilly just be sure to give her enough water and sunlight. Lilly's roots are in South America, but she will do just fine in any Canadian household. She is a beautiful Spathiphyllum, and more commonly referred to as the Peace Lily. We think it is because of her beautiful and peaceful white flowers. Or maybe it's cause she was the most well-behaved character in that series, Sex and The Lily.The Peace Lilies in stock right now are not yet flowering. But with your amazing plant parent skills that will certainly happen soon! 15 60 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every three years In summer https://plantsome.ca/products/small-peace-lily-spathiphyllum http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SpathiphyllumPeacelily6inpot.png?v=1609956113 4569088917586 Pilea Cadierei | Aluminum plant (S) Al Al does shift work at the smelter up in Kitimat. Its tough work but he's good at it. Al is a Pilea Cadierei or an Aluminum Plant. Its when work is done for the day and Al gets home, that his easy going nature and simple tastes shine through. Al likes the simple things in life - home baked bread, craft beer by the growler and lazy days spent in a hammock. You 'da Man Al, you 'da Man! Al really is an easy to please kind of plant. He is not fussy about much and when he is happy he will grow and grow quite quickly. Keep Al in a moderately bright spot but not in direct sunlight. Water him frequently especially in the Spring and Summer. If you want Al to grow full and bushy a good pruning every spring is essential as is re-potting.  10 18 Regular Low air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 2 years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/pilea-cadieri-aluminum-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PileaCadiereiAluminumPlant4inpot.png?v=1609956226 4609517289554 Peperomia Argyreia (S) | Watermelon Plant James James is Plantsome's secret agent. He pulls off the most insane stunts in his watermelon suit. James is half-succulent which means he stores water in his leaves. It also means that James doesn't get upset when you forget to water him. And when you do give him his drink, shaken, not stirred! James is an absolute super hero at taking care of himself. He's so busy making the world a better place that he has no time to die. His air purifying skills are second to none and his pet friendliness provides a safe refuge for Fifi and Felix!

They are quite fast growing and moisture-wicking, which makes for high humidity. Good for Baloo, good for you! Banana plants contain about 80% water. Needless to say, Baloo is a thirsty roommate and really adores the sun! So pick a bright spot and... go bananas! Baloo's little brother is even cuter than his bigger brother, we think! When we met Baloo and his big brother for the first time we couldn't help but ask him where he got his name. He told us that, when he was little, a beary good friend roamed the Jungle with him. Together they had the best time. He is now named after him. We had no idea what he was talking about but it doesn't matter. Baloo makes us really happy and we're sure he will make you happy too! 10 22 A lot of Light air purifying Bright direct light Non-toxic Once every two years Every other week (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/musa-dwarf-cavendish-banana-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Musadwarf4inpelle.png?v=1609955349 4589600243794 Ponytail Palm | Beaucarnea (S) Beau Ponytail palm's are actually not part of the palm family. It's why Beau has always felt a little out of place. When everyone looks right, Beau looks left if you know what I mean. The Beaucarnea Recurvata or Elephant's Foot is actually part of the succulent family. You see, Beau is blessed with the unique ability to store access water in his stem for later use. Nice! Beau is such a bohemian. Not one to easily commit, he'll only warm up to you if you put him in a bright spot with lots of sun. Beau used to wear his hair in a bun but apparently that's so 2019 its not even funny. Anyway, Beau is really easy going, usually minds his own business. Just let him shine in the sun and hang loose. Shaka brah! 10 25 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright and sunny Not toxic Once every year Once every month https://plantsome.ca/products/ponytail-palm-beaucarnea-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PonytailPalm4inpot.png?v=1609956253 4571660255314 Majesty Palm | Ravaena Rivularis (XL) Leo Leo is like one of those characters you see in animated movies: strong and always looking on the bright side of things, but with a vulnerable side! Get ready to spend a lot of time watching palm d'or movies with Leo!. Roll over, Tiger King, Leo's here! As any proud Madagascar native, Leo is big on sun and water. Make sure to treat him well and he will more than repay you with quality air. Oh, and let's not forget another great thing about him: he's pet-friendly too. You'll never have to choose between Leo or your cat, not matter if it's a small kitty or a giant, caged one in a zoo full of weird people. 25 110 Frequent Strong air purifier Sunny, direct light Not toxic Every other year Once every three months https://plantsome.ca/products/majesty-palm-ravaena-rivularis http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Majestypalmwebneptune.png?v=1587574194 4688679895122 Calathea Makoyana | Peacock Plant (M) Leandro This stunning Brazilian dude is ready to elevate your home to a whole new level of glam.

She looks great in pink, smells like a million bucks, cleans the air like nobody's business AND has the attitude to boost. She's still good at what she does too - the last role she played, in 2018, even got her a Palm d'or by the Royal Horticultural Society! There are people who say Carmen might be too old and past her glory days. Sure, she's a little inflexible sometimes and always complains about not getting enough filtered light but don't we all complain sometimes? Sure, her temper can be worse than a 2-year old's, and she can't handle direct sunlight , and if her stress (or water) levels are too high she'll simply refuse to show up on set. But tell you what: name us one Hoyawood diva that isn't difficult. Go on, we'll wait! 10 16 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-carnosa-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/hoyacarnosawebtusca.png?v=1609955890 4569904218194 Haworthia | Zebra Cactus (S) Vern Everyone has a neighbour that is always there when you need them. That's Vern. Need a cup of sugar? Ask Vern. Need a 3/8 Drive 7/16 inch 6-point SAE Deep Socket for that car repair? Ask Vern. Vern is always there to lend a hand. Vern is a Zebra Howorthia or Zebra Cactus. As an air purifier he's one of the best, his sap can be used to sooth burns and minor skin irritation. And he does it all with an 'Awe shucks' attitude that we love! Everyone needs a Vern! Vern is a close relative to Vera, Aloe vera, that is. These succulents are easy to please. They are accustomed to dry, sunny environments so keep them in a bright south facing spot with lots of sunlight. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch. As air purifiers they are top notch, especially for removing formaldehyde from the air. 16 Little Strong air purifier Bright indirect light Not toxic Every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/haworthia-zebra-cactus http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/haworthia4inpelle.png?v=1587574173 4702640832594 Areca Palm (S) Marty Marty is Palm from Central America. To really shine in your room Marty will require plenty of bright indirect light. In return, you'll be awarded with air so super fresh, ahhhh just a a joy to come home to! Marty's hobby really is cleaning the air and its dirty work so Marty will require some love and attention from you to keep doing what Marty does best! Marty is one of the most popular Palms. He'd say he is THE most popular. Truth: you'll find in living rooms everywhere. Marty's latin name is a real jawbreaker so don't even try... Marty is also known as the Reed Palm and Good Luck Palm but to us Marty is just Marty from Central America. This powerful palm loves plenty of bright, filtered sun but is a slow grower. Tranquilo! 10 28 Frequent Strong air purifying Light and bright Non-toxic Once every three years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/areca-palm-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ArecaPalm4inpot.png?v=1609955283 4586943774802 Phlebodium Aureum | Blue Star Fern (M) Rio Looking for an air purifying pro? The Phlebodium is a great choice. Rio is a thirsty fella so be sure to give him plenty of water but no direct sunlight. Native to the subtropical regions of South America, Rio is often situated underneath the canopies of large trees. His pretty green fronds can last up to two years each! Rio isn't big on haircuts or slick looks, oh no, his fronds are all over the place! You may think Rio doesn't really know what to do with all those leaves but he just really likes the out of bed look. One leave is elongated and another will have six branches. It's fascinating how Rio manages to distract us with all of this randomness but we love it. Speaking of random: Phlebodium Aureum is Rio's official name so there's that useless fact, but he's more commonly referred to as a Blue Star Fern. The fronds of this beautiful fern friend are fast growing and will require regular watering. Keep the soil moist at all times and Rio will thank you! 15 50 Regular Strong air purifier Low light Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-phlebodium-aureum-blue-star-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Bluestar6infranco.png?v=1609955377 4573571252306 Calathea Zebrina (S) Abby A real BFF to her cousin Sophia Jr., Abby decided to be a ballerina when she was young, and made good on that promise. For that reason you can notice her leaves perform a slow dance during the day and rise at night! So, if Abby looks a bit different every time you look at her, it's not your head playing with you. Abby here is actually a plant with fame! You see, she was awarded the  Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. It was a long time ago but she showed us the medal and we were honestly quite impressed. She doesn't like to talk about it, though. The acceptance speech and being in the spotlight was kinda nerve wrecking you know. She prefers to be alone chilling with a book, near a North or East facing window. She's just fine being left alone like that. But please - filtered light only and high humidity! Oh and no drafts please. So Temperamental Abby! 10 25 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-zebrina-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Newzebrina4intusca.png?v=1609955536 4642722545746 Cat Palm | Chamaedorea Cataractarum (XL) Simone Simone's unparalleled beauty is from another world. Her confidence to rock those palm-like, elegant leaves make us think we're living in Victorian times! But please don't tell her that we feel like royalty in her presence. One time we mentioned it to her at the office, and she didn't stop talking with that British accent she most definitely can't pull off [no Simone, we don't 'fancy a cuppa', thanks!]. Originally from Southeastern Mexico, Simone makes any room look like a million bucks! So it's no wonder why people often put her on a pedestal. If you treat her like the princess she is, this Cat palm can become more precious with time and grow up to 6 feet tall! Make sure you allow Simone to work on her tan constantly in bright, indirect sunlight and water her soil frequently before it dries. She'll take care of the rest by making you feel in paradise! 25 110 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 3 years Once a month during spring & summer https://plantsome.ca/products/cat-palm-chamaedorea-cataractarum-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Catpalm3gnewpot.png?v=1609955544 4524313739346 Polka Dot Pink | Hypoestes (S) Dottie The Hypoestes Phyllostachia is part of the Polka Dot family. This pretty lady is called Dottie and she was born and raised on the beautiful Island of madagascar. She is at her best in a more humid climate so its best to keep her inside where its nice and warm. Play her some Kalinka and watch her grow! It's poppy's spotty and colourful leaves that 'leave' many plant gazers starstruck. These little leaves are are a real showstopper but truth be told, Poppy is actually quite shy. And if you thought her spots are special have a look at the beautiful red color underneath her leaves. 10 12 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 3-5 years Once a month during spring, summer, and fall https://plantsome.ca/products/polka-dot-hypoestes-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Polkadotpink4inpot.png?v=1609955904 4568605917266 Aphelandra Squarrosa | Zebra Plant (S) Zahra Hmmm, decisions, decisions. Is it the flowers or the foliage that make this plant so attractive? Zahra is an Aphelandra Squarrosa or Zebra plant. In her day-job Zahra radiates elegance and sophistication with her voluptuous white veined-leaves prancing about, but at night she doffs the work clothes and gets into something a little more alluring and wild - this is her flowering side! Bright bracts of yellow flowers that can last up to 6 weeks show what Zahra is really made of. Day or night - Zahra is stripingly pretty! Zebra plants are finicky (needy!). They crave bright, warm and humid environments - something like a sun room or a conservatory is ideal. Don't have one of those? No problem! Put her close to a bright South facing window and she'll be fine - not too much direct sunlight in the summer however! Keep the soil constantly moist during the spring/summer and the humidity high and Zahra will even bring you flowers! 10 18 Regular Low air purifier Bright indirect light Not poisonous Once every two years Weekly in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/aphelandra-squarrossa-zebra-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AphelandraSquarrosaZebraPlant4inpot.png?v=1609956531 4431512862802 Alocasia Zebrina | Elephant's Ear (M) Aku Aku Aku Aku came to us fleeing from his home country of Borneo. Fleeing you ask? Yes because Aku Aku actually gets cooked and eaten in Borneo, which is a pretty legit reason to leave your home. Aku Aku will settle in just fine here, as long as you give him enough water and place him away from direct sunlight. Aku Aku is a special dude. You'll see that when you look at his leaves and stems. You'd almost say he's a cross between a zebra and an elephant. His official name is Alocasia Zebrina but some refer to him as Elephant's Ear. Aku Aku is unique in the way that the attention is always on him. In the Jungle this plant is often used as an umbrella. You'll find animals and even people huddling up together to take refuge from torrential jungle rain. Should you get a leak in the house you know what to do! Aku Aku to the rescue! 15 50 Frequently, weekly Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Occasionally in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-amazonica-african-mask http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Alocasia_Zebrina_6_web_in_ellis.png?v=1584033896 4527654568018 Strelitzia Nicolai | Bird of Paradise (XL) Cranerys We hear ya: Strelitzie Reginae sounds like people dressed as scientists for toothpaste ads. If so, you might dig this plant’s name in regular parlance: Bird of Paradise, or Crane Flower. Now, that’s a damn good superhero name! The nicknames come from two pretty neat design features: the plant looks like a birds head when it’s blossoming, and the flowers resemble feathers on a crane’s head (the bird, not the machine). Aside from its noble roots (ha), the Strelitzia is actually pretty down to earth (somebody’s on a streak today!) and easy to please. She is not fussy about her watering needs, as long as you don't overdo it. Just like climate change, though, sunburn is a real thing: if you leave your Strelitzia exposed to direct sunlight, it will suffer more than that time you tried a DIY wax job during the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Instead, use indirect light, all year-round, and avoid temperatures below 10°C. Oh and a final, friendly advice: this plant is considered mildly toxic for cats, dogs and people. So, if your household has pets, children, adults on a plant-based diet or all of the above...you might want to get rid of them first! 25 100 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot near a window Slightly toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/strelitzia-reginae-bird-of-paradise-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Strelitzia_on_neptune.png?v=1608426372 4524294078546 Neon Pothos (S) Aura Jr. There's a dark air to Aura. Contrary to other species in her family (Epipremnum Aureum), Aura does not blossom due to a genetic bug no Ctrl+Alt+Del could solve. She is also considered a plague due to being nearly impossible to kill and staying green even when kept out of the light. Pretty much the lovechild of the Grinch with Bruce Willis in that Christmas movie. No wonder people also call her the Devil's Ivy. The dark side of the bloom (not to be confused with that Pink Floyd record your weird uncle told you about) never looked greener. And unlike your stoner uncle or the Gilmour-Troubled Waters relationship, Aura has aged well: she's been around at least since 1880, which officially makes her older than knock knock jokes. And she still has the hots! If you're looking for a pet that outlasts you, look no further: Aura is what songs like "I will survive" are all about. Not only is she cold, she's blasé like Beyoncé: leave her to burn in the sun and Aura will still behave like she's totally lovin' it, her heart-shaped leaves all out like it's for that super chill selfie. 10 22 Moderate Not a strong air purifier Low light Once every two years Monthly in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/neon-pothos-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BabyPothospot.png?v=1609956045 4730065616978 Epipremnum | Pothos Marble Queen (L) Mia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Mia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying shotgun in her sister's Lockheed Vega, but they are both retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Mia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Mia known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. 21 35 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-pothos-marble-queen-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosMableQueen8inpot.png?v=1609956276 4747394351186 Maranta Kerchoveana | Green Prayer Plant (S) Amy Amy decided to give up the glam life of being a celebrity publicist after 'finding herself' during a meditation retreat in Northern California. She's really turned a new leaf (heh) and is now all about that organic, non-gmo gluten free vegan life these days. At night, you'll find her staring at the sky, spiritually, as she closes her leaves to appreciate yet another day. Ahhhh... Namaste! Were you praying for more prayer plants? We got you fam! Amy here is a gorgeous prayer plant native to Brazil. This Maranta Kerchoveana features a light green foliage with dark green patches on the front and a silvery green tone on the undersides—its really fifty shades of green with Amy! Coming from the rainforest, make sure to water and mist Amy regularly. As to her preferences for lighting, she prefers bright, indirect sun but can tolerate a bit of shade every once in a while. 10 22 Regular Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Repot once every year Fertilize from spring through fall https://plantsome.ca/products/maranta-kerchoveana-green-prayer-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Maranta_Kerchoveana_p12_teelt_1024x1024_e36c2ff5-e12e-4758-b154-09518acbbc73.png?v=1609956298 4698514817106 Peperomia Obtusifolia | Green (S) Ronaldo Our Brazilian Ronaldo is a real chill dude who doesn't require a lot of attention. He is kind to pets and will clean and purify the air in your home every day. A great choice for the beginner plant parent if you're asking us! The Brazillian Ronaldo is a real lover of life. He is easily satisfied, a real minimalist we should say. This also makes him a perfect gift. With Ronaldo you can't really go wrong. His succulently thick and bright green colored leaves will spruce up your home like nothing else. In Brazil, the Peperomia plant is known to be gifted as a sign that 'everything will be alright'. What a great mantra to live by. 10 18 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/green-peperomia-obtusifolia-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PeperomiaObtusifoliaGreen4inpot.png?v=1609956157 4524269437010 Nerve Plant | Fittonia Albivenis (S) Nala Jr. Nala Jr. is such a sweet little plant. She's not the fondest of being in the spotlight and tends to shy away from too much social activity but that's ok! Nala's introverted behaviour is so well balanced with her dazzlingly coloured leaves. And ominous looking as they may seem, the leaves of the Fittonia are non-toxic so safe for pets! No need to get nervous about Fifi throwing up after nibbling on Nala. Nice! Nala the nerve plant may be small in stature but she sure has a striking look to her. The dark green leaves are brightened by tiny pinkish veins that run through them. Nala is an easy grower that doesn't mind to be in the shade. Low light is her kinda light. In fact, she gets a little 'nervous' in bright spots with lots of other super tall sun loving plant friends around. She's not a recluse entirely but Nala certainly likes to keep to herself. That's why she's got her own little shelf here at Plantsome.

His beautiful pointy leaves standing firmly upright, his dark green coloured foliage alternating with bright pink tones, beautiful! Yep, easy to see why this easy going green amigo is a popular choice! Momo's not only got the looks, he's not affraid of a work out either. His leaves are great at purifying the air which he does all day, every day. Momo, you're a great house mate! Tradescantia Spathacea or Moses in a Boat is a cute little plant with a unique pattern of variegated green and purple leaves. An easy plant friend to have around that is tolerant to a wide range of lighting conditions. Under the right conditions, it will produce bright white flowers that are tucked away inside of the plant's 'cradle'. We're having a bit of a hard time seeing Moses, or the cradle for that matter, but we probably just lack imagination!  10 19 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-spathacea-moses-in-a-boat http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Mosesinaboat4inpot.png?v=1609956029 4856850776146 Calathea Vittata (S) Frida She’s breathtaking! Because the white and pink stripes on their leaves look like brush strokes, Calathea White Stars are often compared to paintings. Bringing Frida home is a bit like having a living work of art—and Frida knows a little something about art. She aims to paint the most important, and tragic, events in her life as a plant: “Rootbound”, “Self Portrait of Me Being Overwatered”, and “Me and My Owner, Who Knows Exactly What They Did.” Calathea Vittata are low light plants, which makes them perfect for indoor growing in those less than ideal plant corners of your room. As for Frida, she expects to be treated with kindness and respect. She likes high humidity, having her leaves misted, and getting watered just enough for her soil to be moist at all times. Too much water will lead to root rot and Frida does not like wet feet, or any feet for that matter! 10 16 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-calathea-white-star-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaWhitestar4inpot.png?v=1609955534 4732535832658 Areca Palm (XL) Marty Marty is Palm from Central America.

'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy! Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and he's still easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management. 21 40 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright but no direct sunlight Non-toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/nephrolepis-exaltata-boston-fern-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BostonFern8inpot.png?v=1609955390 4643152658514 Peperomia Ferreyrae (S) | Happy Bean Finn Finn's life motto is: "Happy tummy, happy life."

Less is more for Gus, such a low maintenance guy. Gus also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Gus does not need any plant food. Gosh Gus, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Gus can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Gus is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Gus doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Gus hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Gus really popular. us purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juiccccce. 10 15 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-zeylanica-snake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SnakeZeylanica4inpot.png?v=1609956377 4564656357458 Asplenium Nidus | Birds Nest Fern (M) Mowgli Besides amazing air purifying capabilities Mowgli is most comonly known for his wavy leaves. We've seen a bunch of girls looking in awe at those amazing locks of green. Did you know that those leaves will grow from the crown outward when a new leaf emerges? The Asplenium Crispy Wave Fern always has a big and full set of leaves because of it. His passport may say Asplenium Nidus but to friends he'll always be known as Mowgli. He does have a tendency to disappear into the jungle for a few days, but we've talked to him about it and he promised to stay put from now on. The Asplenium or Birds Nest Fern is a plant that doesn't l ike to be in the spotlight and would rather be in the shade. Just because he's hiding doesn't mean Mowgli doesn't love you! He'll shower you with fresh oxygen from his corner of the room as a token of his appreciation.

Sansevieria plants are having a bit of a moment so you'd be a hip plant parent right out of the gate! The name Snake plant might sound daunting, but rest assured: Snakes are sssssssuper easy to maintain and we've made this green amigo promise  it  won't strangle you in your sleep. These low maintenance houseplants only need water about once a month and can be left in moderate to bright light. When you’re watering yours, check to see if the soil is dry a few inches deep before watering again. Overwatering can lead to soft, brown mushy leaves and snakes really don't appreciate mushy leaves.

This sophisticated, zen gentleman is certainly one of a kind and is ready to become your personal meditation coach. Before you wake up, Bao will have already meditated for at least two hours, so you'll need to do some catch up. Now, let's try it again c'mon: focus on your breathing, juuuuuust focussss... aaaahh... The Buddhist Pine has a vibrant, grass-like foliage that mesmerizes anyone who sees him. He's an easy going fella who doesn't require much care from you. However, make sure to keep him healthy by letting his soil dry before waterings and by placing him somewhere he can get bright light, including direct sunlight. Bao also has the potential to become a huge amigo, so he may require some trimming as his hair starts to grow. 10 28 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 3-4 years Biweekly during growing season https://plantsome.ca/products/podocarpus-budhist-pine-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Budhistpine4inpot.png?v=1609956249 4651727257682 Croton Gold Dust (S) Lee-Anne The Croton Petra is not the most air purifying plant that you'll find but fear not. Just like any other plant, Lee-Anne will turn Carbon Dioxide into oxygen for you. With Lee-Anne you'll have a happy houseplant no matter what. The Asian beauty Croton Petra is one of the prettiest girls in the classroom. Lee-Anne may look innocent but she has a rebellious streak for sure! If anyone asks, yes she enjoys visits to the salon for a new look. How else would she change those colors all the time? We see right through you Lee-Anne! 10 24 Frequent Lightly air purifying Bright spot with no direct sunlight Lightly poisonous Once every two years Once per month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/croton-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Croton4inmatte.png?v=1609955586 4643188179026 Ponytail Palm | Beaucarnea (M) Beau Ponytail palm's are actually not part of the palm family. It's why Beau has always felt a little out of place. When everyone looks right, Beau looks left if you know what I mean. The Beaucarnea Recurvata or Elephant's Foot is actually part of the succulent family. You see, Beau is blessed with the unique ability to store access water in his stem for later use. Nice! Beau is such a bohemian. Not one to easily commit, he'll only warm up to you if you put him in a bright spot with lots of sun. Beau used to wear his hair in a bun but apparently that's so 2019 its not even funny. Anyway, Beau is really easy going, usually minds his own business. Just let him shine in the sun and hang loose. Shaka brah! 15 50 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright and sunny Not toxic Once every year Once every month https://plantsome.ca/products/ponytail-palm-beaucarnea-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK03078boule.png?v=1609956256 4586567401554 Phlebodium Aureum | Blue Star Fern (S) Rio Looking for an air purifying pro? The Phlebodium is a great choice. Rio is a thirsty fella so be sure to give him plenty of water but no direct sunlight. Native to the subtropical regions of South America, Rio is often situated underneath the canopies of large trees. His pretty green fronds can last up to two years each! Rio isn't big on haircuts or slick looks, oh no, his fronds are all over the place! You may think Rio doesn't really know what to do with all those leaves but he just really likes the out of bed look. One leave is elongated and another will have six branches. It's fascinating how Rio manages to distract us with all of this randomness but we love it. Speaking of random: Phlebodium Aureum is Rio's official name so there's that useless fact, but he's more commonly referred to as a Blue Star Fern. The fronds of this beautiful fern friend are fast growing and will require regular watering. Keep the soil moist at all times and Rio will thank you! 10 30 Regular Strong air purifier Low light Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/phlebodium-aureum-blue-star-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Phlebodium4INfranco.png?v=1609955375 4565838987346 Ficus Elastica Burgundy | Rubber Tree (M) Jack If making fresh air would be like weight lifting, Jack would be a world champion weightlifter. The pro at filtering for fresh air, Jack is on that famous list of the top-ten best air purifiers according to NASA. And let's just clear the air for a moment here, good air means good vibes! Some say that Jack will help boost your creativity, stamina, reaction speed and neural development. A Jack of all trades! Jack is a Ficus Robusta Burgundy which, if you ask us, really is one of the most modern looking plants! Jack looks good in any room setting. We have a Jack in the office and we love it. His leaves are tall, firm and have a beautiful deep color. Jack is originally from the rainforest of South-East Asia. He told us he visited Thailand, Malaysia and India during a recent back packing trip. Last year he was spotted jacking around in the South-America as well. A real globetrotter. 15 35 Average Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every 3 years Once a month (spring & summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-elastica-burgundy-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ficuselasticaburgundy6inellisv2.png?v=1587574132 4591120810066 Olea | Olive Tree (M) Olivia Olivia is that one friend we all have that will be on her flip flops wearing shorts the moment it hits ten degrees celsius. We don't blame her for it. It's in her Mediterranean blood! She adorns the sun and would like nothing else than to work on her tan on a beach towel drinking mimosas and reading a Sophie Kinsella. What a life Olivia! Did you come here for the olives or the Olive Tree? You see, Olea Europaea or Olive Trees obviously grow olives, but getting there requires a real green thumb and can not be achieved inside the home year round. That doesn't mean this baby Olive Tree won't look super cute in your living room of course! If you do want to have a go at growing your own olives, place the olive tree in your garden, balcony or patio in spring and summer so it can get full sun. These trees also need a night time drop in temperature to spur on the blooming. Fertilize bi-weekly in spring and monthly in winter when you move the tree back inside. Are you keeping notes? It's a lot for a handful of olives but don't say we didn't warn ya! 15 26 Regular Low air purifier Direct sunlight Not toxic Every year Bi-weekly (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/olea-olive-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OleaOlivetree6inwebcoco.png?v=1609956066 4794130661458 Calathea Roseopicta Dottie (S) Dottie At 65 Dottie is a completely new plant. She’s been prescribed medicinal marijuana for her cataracts and it’s completely opened up her mind. Dottie walks around in a world of vibrant colors, she sees her own leaves as a mix of purples and pinks. Whenever the grandchildren are over, she tells the younger ones to never stop dreaming and slips the older ones some weed cookies. It’s hard to argue with somebody who never stops smiling. Dottie can be found dressed in a mix of velvet-red robes and flowing gowns that look like they belong in a ballroom dresser room. Dottie even got caught speeding on the highway and told the officer he had a beautiful soul. She got off without a ticket. The Calathea Roseopicta Dottie is visually striking to say the least with dark green leaves that are beautifully contrasted against pink borders and strokes and a purple underside. Dottie needs plenty of diffused sunlight but if she’s out in direct sunlight it can cause her to lose the beautiful markings on her leaves. Plus too much sunlight makes her feel totally baked! Keep her soil damp but not enough that she sits there in water. Even when she’s got the munchies! 10 20 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-roseopicta-dottie-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaMedallionRoseopictaDottie4inpot.png?v=1609955515 4694581280850 Monstera Deliciosa (XXL) | Swiss Cheese Plant Alfredo Alfredo is a Monstera Deliciosa which is commonly referred to as a Swiss Cheese Plant, Swiss Cheese Vine and Five holes plant. All these names gave Alfredo a bit of an identity crisis. To top it all off, botanists once lumped him in with the wrong family! Fortunately the record has been set straight and we know he's part of the Monstera family. It was all very stressful for Alfredo so we've agreed not to bring it up to him again. Can you help us keep that promise? Abab is a swiss cheese plant with drooping, heart shaped leaves. They're beautiful trailing plants that grow quickly when taken care of properly. You'll find Adansonii's like Abab growing naturally in South and Central America and the West Indies, but Abab never fit in with his siblings. All they could ever agree on was that indirect light is best. For Abab living the fast life on Wall Street is where he really belongs. And you know what, we can't blame him.  I t's a jungle out there! 25 70 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-deliciosa-xl-swiss-cheese-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MonsteraDeliciosa3gpot.png?v=1609956020 4586602430546 Philodendron Cordatum (M) Kate Sigh! Remember back in grade 5, you were sitting in the back of the class and there was that girl in the second row, the one with two giant braids, mischievous eyes and rosy cheeks? You would sit there and dream about her all day long thinking you were going to get married and have kids and a dog and a house in the burbs... Well that girl is Kate and today she runs an ink shop down on the Drive. She is married to Lori and was elected to the Parks Board last year. We love Kate because she defies convention and makes sh*t happen. Go Kate! What's not to love about a plant that has irresistible heart-shaped leaves? Kate is a vine so she can grow as a trailing/hanging plant or as a climbing plant depending on your tastes. Furthermore Kate is a jungle plant so she loves warm, humid environments and bright, filtered sun but no direct light - think of all of those jungle plants lliving under the shade of the giant jungle trees. If Kate's vines grow too long don't be afraid to trim them back, that will help her to fill out a little more.

This trailing amigo will climb, vine and trail his way into your heart with his lush foliage of ever growing green leaves. Don’t worry thought, Harry will do it at a gingerly pace (heh). Harry may not be in line for a throne (a trellis, maybe?) but he’s still a catch. Lush leaves that are easy to care for are always a fan favorite here at Plantsome. Harry, you’ve won us over! We do recommend a spray bottle with water to keep his fans, dubbed “Harry Hunters”, out of your home and garden. English Ivy is a creeping vine plant that likes bright light and a moist soil to flourish but can do without and still survive. When you think of ivy you may think of crumbling buildings and lush trellises, but they make great houseplants too! Having an English Ivy plant at home is like having a piece of your very own fairytale. And please don't believe the fake news that Harry simply takes over everywhere he goes. On this side of the pond he can totally be tamed! 10 14 Fairly little Strong air purifier Bright indirect light Toxic Every other year Fertilize monthly in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hedera-s-english-ivy http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/EnglishIvy6inpot.png?v=1609955745 4733633331282 Calathea Orbifolia (S) Isabella Isabella's official name is Calathea Orbifolia and if that doesn't ring a bell, she's the real deal! Besides the fact that she's a stunning beautiy to look at, Isabella is also known as the princess of purifying! Her big beautiful leaves have no problem converting CO2 into Oxygen. But wait, there's more! Isabella is a non-poisonous plant so she plays real nice with your furry friends and little kids. Another fun fact; because her leaves are pretty strong, locals in South America often use them as packaging material for their freshly caught fish. We promised Isabella we wouldn't do that to her though, can you help us keep that promise? Isabella  grew up in the  Amazon forests  of  Brazil and the Colombian Jungle. She's a Calathea and those of you with experience caring for one already know: her beauty comes at a price! If you do so much as look at her the wrong way her leaves will turn yellow, brown and crispy! Keep her in low to medium light and provide this needy green amiga with some filtered water if you can. Much obliged! 10 20 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-orbifolia-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaOrbifolia4inpot.png?v=1609955505 4740543873106 Alocasia Bambino Arrow | African Mask (S) Kiit Kiit’s shy. Unlike his Florida born-and-raised cousin, Tiki, who basks in sunlight and attention. He’s a little on the small side and is much more of a talker than a fighter. Kiit doesn’t know it yet but when he grows up he’s going to break hearts. Do you remember that kid in high school who suddenly became super attractive after one summer holiday? This is Kiit. Just give him time, love and care and he’ll be one of the most gorgeous things you’ve ever seen. Kiit is a perfect example that everything, even plants, need affection and attention, are you listening Mom?! Kitt’s foliage can be described in one word - stunningly beautiful. Okay, well, now it gets two. Because he deserves it! Kitt’s need a moist environment with humidity slightly above average. He may have a dormant period where his leaves will fade and die. Don’t worry about it, this is just Kitt being a little shy. He’s all good. Just reduce the amount of water you give him, allow him a little space and some “me-time” and he’ll recharge that social battery in no time! 10 20 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic!

She fiercely believes there’s somebody out there for her. For all of us. We just have to find them. Juliet spends most of her free time planning her dream wedding - the perfect decor, the perfect wedding band, everything perfect for her perfect prince. Nobody has the heart to tell her that there's no such thing as perfect. Lets face it, who wants to be the one to tell somebody to stop believing in love? Juliet’s met some great plants but they’re just not him y’know. They’re not Romeo. The String of Hearts (known to some as the Ceropegia Woodii) is a lovely trailing plant easily recognisable with its heart shaped leaves. Caring for Juliet is fairly simple, she needs watering once every 7-10 days but don’t allow her to sit in water as she’ll get root rot (and heartbreak). Juliet enjoys a little bit of sunshine, so having her close to a window would be great as she can also watch out for the love of her life. 15 18 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Very toxic - careful with pets/kids Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/variegated-string-of-hearts-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Stringofhearts6inpot.png?v=1609956352 4559858073682 Ficus Lyrata (XXL) on trunk Eileen Eileen has like a million followers on instagram. Yep you heard it, Eileen is instafamous. She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves always get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Eileen is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Eileen, or the Ficus Lyrata, is commonly referred to as a Fiddle Leaf Fig. Get it? Fiddle...Leaf...Fig. On Saturday nights you'll find her at underground deep house dance clubs but on Sunday she loves to put on the jazzy tunes. But don't shy away from pop songs either. Let her listen to your favorite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She loves those too! Go Eileen! 25 115 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic to pets Every 1-2 years Every time you water (except in winter) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-lyrata-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/newficuslyrstdboulegreen.png?v=1609955793 4527629664338 Dracaena Lemon Lime (M) Kenzo Kenzo used to be pure negativity, but he's trying to get over it. He took one of those hipster mindfulness/meditation/goatyoga courses and now he's trying to be all about the chill. After a fight with Kenzo Jr. we had to put him on some mandatory 20 minute meditation sessions to combat his anger management issues. Do you think Kenzo will work it out? Don't think Kenzo is all virtue, though. Last time we met, he was vaping, for chrissake, and said he's not pet-friendly because he never really understood the hype about cat videos. Never really understood, as in: actually. Hates. Cats. Let that sink in for a while. Oh, and he also complained a lot about how hard life was for him. Making yourself a martyr can be such a drag sometimes. 15 50 Only a little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-lemon-lime-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Drac_War_6_web_on_franco.png?v=1583815993 4636799434834 Pachira Aquatica | Money Tree (M) Bucky Movie viper Gordon Gekko once said that greed is good. We, on the other hand, like to think that green is good. If you're not one to frown on making a little dough, though, Bucky's a keeper. For real! The Chinese say this fella (Pachira Aquatica) brings luck and guards treasures better than any safe. Bucky will also keep the air around you cleaner than a tax audit. So, consider Bucky an investment. Although not swimming in money like Uncle Scrooge, Bucky is quite the bon vivant in the botanical jet set. In South America, where the Pachira Aquatica comes from, Bucky thrives in riverbanks (and judging by its popular name, Money Tree, maybe in regular banks too?) and can even turn into a fancy tree, 30 meters high and all. His flowers can replace cocoa, but you'd better stick to the chocolate: the Pachira juice, like certain bonds, is moderately toxic. 15 60 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot - no direct sunlight Moderately toxic Smaller ones - every year Once a month during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pachira-aquatica-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pachira6incoco.png?v=1609956092 4623544352850 Sansevieria Laurentii | Snake Plant (XL) Kaa Kaa is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Kaa is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Kaa and you'll have a happy plant! Oh and Kaa does not need any plant food. Gosh, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Kaa can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Kaa is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Kaa doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Kaa hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Kaa really popular. Kaa purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juisssssss (imitates snake sound). 25 80 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-sansevieria-laurentii-snake-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieiriaLaurentii3Gpot.png?v=1609956397 4711206027346 Senecio Rowleyanus | String of Pearls (M) Peggy Just about every self-respecting plant Insta page has a photo of this lady on his or her feed: the Senecio Rowleyanus aka Pea Plant aka String of Pearls or our little Peggy as we call her. The reason Peggy is so much in the spotlight may be obvious, her gorgeous strings of pearls. I mean just look at 'em! Draping down like a kind of green waterfall. A beautiful hanging plant to place in any modern interior. Peggy is very attached to her pearls, but she understand she has to let go of some of them occasionally. Do not be alarmed if some have come detached on arrival. She just creates new ones! A word of caution: Peggy is very possessive of her pearls. This beautiful necklace that she's wearing can become very long (60-90 cm!), so take this into account when choosing a spot. Furthermore, Peggy is a succulent from the drier parts of West Africa. She doesn't need a lot of water. She likes a bright spot but not in direct sunlight. Peggy's lovely locks may be a little short right now but with enough love and attention they will be Instagram-worthy in no time. We love you Peggy! 15 17 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Very toxic - careful with pets/kids Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-rowleyanus-string-of-pearls-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofPearls6inpot.png?v=1609956358 4676257972306 Hoya Curtisii | Porcelain flower (S) Lorenzo Let’s face it.

From Latin to dubstep and some good ol' Drake, Lorenzo just knows what people need! At the office, we just leave him in charge of setting the mood and oh, boy, he does! Unts Unts Unts baby whoo! We used to think the Hoya Curtisii was more picky and needy, but Lorenzo doesn't really ask for much. Just let the top of his soil dry up by about 1" between waterings and place him somewhere with bright, indirect sunlight. You be good to Lorenzo like that and he'll be good to you.

Which is just stellar. Heidi told us she was recruited to be part of the mission to the moon, but that sounds a lot like fairy tale to us. She showed us a picture - it looks photoshopped, so we won't show that here. We know: Heidi's gonna hate, but what can you do? Either way, air purifying is still a pretty cool superpower, and Heidi is the real deal. What are you waiting for? Don't get hasty, get Heidi! Heidi is a special Ficus. She looks so much bigger for her age! It must be those beautiful variegated leaves that she grows. Those colours really POP girl! Heidi is one of those plants that really loves to give back, providing you with amazing fresh living room air in return for a bit of H2-EAU.

They're everywhere, one more stunning than the other. And just when you thought you'd seen them all, in walks Viola with her striking canopy of purple leaves. We're smitten! Chuck and Sophia's older brother, Indy, left the house early to become an archaeologist. He scoured the riverbanks along the Amazon river in search for long lost settlements with hidden treasures. He's told us many harrowing stories! Apparently, the patterns on his beautiful foliage can be read as scripture that holds the key to a sacred temple filled with gold and diamonds! We just can't crack the code.

We all have that one friend that only orders 'off' the menu and asks for gluten free, organic, dairy free, soy free, nut free, non GMO ice cream. Juan is not that guy. Little Juanito here just likes minding his own business tending to his flower. He doesn't need the spotlight (sun) and isn't keen on plant food (fertilizer) either. Just keep him a bright spot somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the window sill where all the other plants live. Gracias! Juan over here has many brothers and sisters but Juan likes to think his star shines the brightest. This bromeliad Guzmania has a beautiful purple coloured flower that blooms for three to six months, wow! So if youre looking for a flowery vibe from your plant, just let Juan whisk you away to the tropics with his dazzling looks! 15 55 Moderate low air purifying Bright, indirect light Not toxic Not needed Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/guzmania-hope-bromeliad-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Guzmaniahopecoco.png?v=1609955867 4611972628562 Philodendron Cordatum (L) Kate Sigh! Remember back in grade 5, you were sitting in the back of the class and there was that girl in the second row, the one with two giant braids, mischievous eyes and rosy cheeks? You would sit there and dream about her all day long thinking you were going to get married and have kids and a dog and a house in the burbs... Well that girl is Kate and today she runs an ink shop down on the Drive. She is married to Lori and was elected to the Parks Board last year. We love Kate because she defies convention and makes sh*t happen. Go Kate! What's not to love about a plant that has irresistible heart-shaped leaves? Kate is a vine so she can grow as a trailing/hanging plant or as a climbing plant depending on your tastes. Furthermore Kate is a jungle plant so she loves warm, humid environments and bright, filtered sun but no direct light - think of all of those jungle plants lliving under the shade of the giant jungle trees. If Kate's vines grow too long don't be afraid to trim them back, that will help her to fill out a little more.

If that's too technical: Gus is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Gus and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Gus, such a low maintenance guy. Gus also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Gus does not need any plant food. Gosh Gus, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Gus can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Gus is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Gus doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Gus hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Gus really popular. us purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juiccccce. 15 45 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-zeylanica-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Zeylanica6inellis.png?v=1587574278 4902399377490 Dracaena Marginata Cane (S) | Dragon Tree Noah Noah is an easy going one. He does not drink much and does not need to be in the sun. This is nice for all you north facing urban dwellers out there. Noah does not take well to Pets because he is slightly poisonous. Beyond that, Noah is a pretty chill dude and excellent at purifying the air. Thanks Noah! Noah's a bit of an oddball in the plant world. Not a big fan of a manicured look, Noah tends to let his leaves hang anywhere and everywhere. It gives him a bit of a tough-guy appearance but honestly, he's a softie with a big heart. Noah's officially a Dracaena Marginata but who's keeping score right? Noah loves to hang out in pretty much any room or corner which makes him an easy going dude. Now that's an easy plant to fall in love with! 10 38 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-dracaena-marginata-s-dragon-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaMarginata4inpot_d2c1a8f8-b803-4fe7-8798-d3dd06d6b033.png?v=1609955668 4602336149586 Calathea Maui Queen (M) Brooke Brooke's had a rough life. When she sat down and told us how many ups and downs she's had we felt like we were listening to a soap opera... seriously! , the cheating, the backstabbery (is that a word?). Now all Brooke wants is a quiet place to call home. Do you have a spot in mind for her? Calathea have the natural ability to absorb lots of light in places that receive a mediocre amount of light which makes them perfect office plants. Be forwarned though, Brooke here is a little fussy when it comes to watering and humidity levels. Make sure to keep the soil slightly moist at all times. Areas with a relatively high humidity are best for Brooke. You might want to be extra kind to that co-worker that was going to take care of her when you were gone. She won't take kindly to your absence otherwise! Just be careful when your coworker is called Ridge or you might not get her back!

Some say he came from an alien planet and crash landed in a giant burrito spaceship. It kind of makes sense if you think about it for a second, because the origin of the Burrito as a food is also a mystery. So consider it solved...the burrito is alien food! Javier's favourite is the Breakfast burrito. Hmmm NomNomNom! It is true that this Sedum Morganianum has never been spotted in the wild so its still a real mystery where this funny looking fella is actually from. But you obviously didn't come for the mystique, so let us tell you about how easy it is to care for this otherworldly stranger. Sedum plants are super easy to care for. They store water in their succulent leaves which means this burrito boy doesn't mind your forgetful watering habits. Keep yours away from direct sunlight as that will burn the leaves to a crisp and water occasionally when the top soil has dried out. 15 17 Little Low air purifying Bright, indirect sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/sedum-morganianum-string-of-burritos-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofBurritos6inpotcopy.png?v=1609956340 4703792889938 Pothos Jade Pearl (M) Aurora Aura's chill sister, Aurora is the laid-back one. Sure, like all Epipremnum Aureum (that's her royalty name), Aurora digs being in the spotlight, but not if that means direct sunlight or paparazzi flashes. Kind of like the Pippa to Aura's Kate. You grow, girl! Aurora is the nerdy type who loves to read about what NASA is up to these days. In fact, she was even featured in a viral NASA article once, about air purifying plants! Like most nerds, Aurora too hates to leave the house, and would rather have her sunlight filtered through a window. Otherwise, if you give her a lot of light, Aurora will wither like a vampire in the sun, or that kid in school that one time his crush caught him doing the Spock Hand Sign (cue sad trombone sound effect). 15 27 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/pothos-jade-pearl-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosPearlandJade6inpot.png?v=1609956287 4614310363218 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (M) Carl This beautiful and special fern is originally from New Zealand and South-East Asia but his name is Greek. 'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy! Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management. **Length of carl is from the base of the pot to the hanger** 15 35 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright but no direct sunlight Non-toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/nephrolepis-exaltata-boston-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BostonFern6inpot.png?v=1609955389 4858268713042 Peperomia Argyreia (M) | Watermelon Plant James James is Plantsome's secret agent. He pulls off the most insane stunts in his watermelon suit. James is half-succulent which means he stores water in his leaves. It also means that James doesn't get upset when you forget to water him. And when you do give him his drink, shaken, not stirred! James is an absolute super hero at taking care of himself. He's so busy making the world a better place that he has no time to die. His air purifying skills are second to none and his pet friendliness provides a safe refuge for Fifi and Felix! You and James are going to from a really strong bond. 15 25 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-argyreia-m-watermelon-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PeperomiaArgyreiaWatermelonPlant6inpot.png?v=1609956170 4571604811858 Zamioculcas (L) | ZZ Plant Luke Luke is your perfect living room buddy. He doesn't need a lot of looking after and grows slowly. Some have luck, some have Luke! Luke is also slightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Besides those little quirks, Luke is pretty laid back and handles himself well in most environments. Luke is your rock. Your strong guy. Your tough bro standing beside you when sh*t hits the fan. Luke lends a helping plant and is there for the good and the bad times. Besides, he doesn't even ask for much in return. The African Zamioculcas is an easygoing guy that will not bother you for much of anything really. It doesn't matter much to him where you put him and he's almost never thirsty. Luke is the perfect gift for the starting houseplant lover. Other plants are actually quite jealous of Luke, but it doesn't bother him much. Luke is waaaaay to chill for those jealous looks. Other plants just don't "Luke" as good. We love you Luke. <3 21 60 Frequent Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-l-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/zamioculcasLfranco.png?v=1604435109 4822047293522 Tradescantia Sunny Star (S) Mimi Mimi used to be a palm reader. She stopped practicing a while back but she did ours anyway. Turns out we have a green thumb and lots of green palms (heh)! Jokes aside, Mimi's a keeper. Her bright pink tones make it really easy to see why this easy going green amiga is a popular choice! Besides telling you about your destiny she's also great at purifying the air. Mimi, we pick you! Tradescantia Sunny Star is a cute little plant with a unique pattern of variegated green and purple leaves. An easy plant friend to have around that is tolerant to a wide range of lighting conditions. Under the right conditions, it will produce bright white flowers that are tucked away inside of the plant's 'cradle'. We're having a bit of a hard time seeing stars, or the sun for that matter, but we probably just lack imagination!  10 25 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-sunny-star-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/TradescantiaSunnyStar4inpot.png?v=1609956487 4573949198418 Epipremnum | Pothos Marble Queen (M) Mia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Mia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying shotgun in her sister's Lockheed Vega, but they are both retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Mia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Mia known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. 15 30 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-aureum-pothos-marble-queen-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosMarbleQueen6inpot.png?v=1609956274 4703740723282 Philodendron Cordatum (S) | Lemon Lime Heartleaf Kate Sigh!

Her beautiful striking green, cream white and pink leaves fit her perfectly. She has such a colorful personality. Frankly, the more we get to know her the more we realize she's kind of a hippie. Don't let her looks fool you, she'd love to be protesting the war and light a blunt. 'Make love, not war dude.' If you thought all we had was green, think again! The Calathea Triostar has wonderfully pink and creamy white leaves and yes that is amazing. But what is even more amazing is the fact that she closes those leaves at night! You may have to get used to the rustle! Donna loves the light but keep her away from direct sunlight.

She wakes up every morning to watch the sunrise, prefers to have breakfast in bed and starts her day with yoga. Zoe is a laid-back, cheery plant that brightens up everyone's day at the office. She is so positive that from time to time, we need to tell her to stop playing "All You Need is Love" on repeat. Zoe is a true dreamer, no doubt! As an optimist, Zoe expects that you treat her well. But as a semi-succulent, she understands that life happens sometimes, and you just forget about the whole watering thing for a little while. Just don't make it a habit ;) This Peperomia Hope, a.k.a Zoe, can thrive in moderate to low light conditions and is non-toxic to pets, which makes her perfect for new plant parents. She's also a great air purifier. Seriously, can someone tell us what's not to like about Zoe? Someone?

Mojo is an African word that describes inner power. Your swag, your shine, your sparkle, you know? What's Mojo's inner power, you ask? Mojo has turned air purifying into an art. He sneaks up on bad substances like a ninja and renders them harmless! Benzenes better hide when Mojo's around because he'll attack them straight on. Mojo is lightly poisonous, so repeat after me: with pets a go-go, Mojo is a no-no from the get-go. In Africa, this Dracaena has to survive in a pretty tough environment. Thus, it's no surprise that Mojo can easily flourish with little light. He also likes to brag that he can reach heights of up to 15 feet where he comes from. Worry not, Mojo won't go supersize on you in his pot. However, if you repot him frequently there is almost no stopping him. This one will never lose its Mojo. 15 35 Only a little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-compacta-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Janetcraig6innewcoco.png?v=1609955653 4919289315410 Monstera Deliciosa (S) | Swiss Cheese Plant Alfredo Alfredo is a Monstera Deliciosa which is commonly referred to as a Swiss Cheese Plant, Swiss Cheese Vine and Five holes plant. All these names gave Alfredo a bit of an identity crisis. To top it all off, botanists once lumped him in with the wrong family! Fortunately the record has been set straight and we know he's part of the Monstera family. It was all very stressful for Alfredo so we've agreed not to bring it up to him again. Can you help us keep that promise? Buenas dias Alfredo! The Monstera Deliciosa is naturally found in Mexico. So lock away your mezcal and hide the guac! Ha, just kidding but seriously though, Alfredo is nacho average joe. Alfredo is a climber so keep an eye on those leaves or he'll just start wandering off! Alfredo is blessed with beautiful leaves that when grown bigger, eventually become full of holes that you'll find in most Swiss Cheese plants. Alfredo loves the sun but tranquilo por favor with direct sunlight. Be nice to Alfredo and he will show you some real Mexican character.

In tropical forests you'll find her chilling under the canopy of large trees so she is used to low light environments. That's great because the corner spot on the window sill is usually already taken up by your other plants (or plans for plants), right!? Its not common to see a plant so stunning that is yet so easy to care for but Miley is definitely one of them. She's a great hanging plant but will do just fine in a regular pot as well. Her leaves have an almost 'satin' feel to them and her silver spots are a sight to behold. We commend her almost daily when we walk into the office here at Plantsome. Yep, she's a stunner and she knows it. "I can't help it, they grow on my leaves naturally."

Where he’s from, conflict is around every corner. He never feels the cold. The only thing he ever takes at room temperature are the lives of his enemies! Vlad doesn’t care for smiling, the only time he smiles is when babies are born and his enemies die. Vlad was raised to believe that a hard life was an accomplished life, if anything is too easy he won’t do it. This is why he hunts and cooks his meals himself and whenever he passes a supermarket he makes it a point to scowl at the cashiers. The Ctenanthe Burle Marx are fantastic prayer plants that are best suited for rooms without too much sunlight. Because they are evergreen plants, you’ll be happy to know that their leaves will be on display all through the year. If you’re impatient, this may not be the plant for you as vlad is slow growing (and fast tempered) but lucky for you, Vlad's done incredibly well on his journey to being the impressive prayer plant he strives to be. Be careful though, Vlad likes to drink! Constant watering is needed, even in winter times, so keep soil consistently moist. It makes Vlad glad.  15 30 Moderate Strong air purifier Shaded or Indirect light Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ctenanthe-burle-marx-prayer-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaBurleMarx6inpot.png?v=1609955588 4727683154002 Calathea Roseopicta Rosy (S) Viola Calatheas are having a bit of a moment. They're everywhere, one more stunning than the other. And just when you thought you'd seen them all, in walks Viola with her striking canopy of purple leaves. We're smitten! Viola is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Julia, Brooke, Sophia, Susie and Pink. If you're an avid Calathea collector, Viola is a must have addition to the collection. Her big beautiful leaves are a bright purple that is not seen often in shaded plants. Put this fancy lady in a bright spot away from direct sunlight, and give her a regular misting of the leaves. Fortunately she's a great communicator and will furl up her leaves to tell you she's thirsty!  10 18 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-picturata-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaPicturata4inpot.png?v=1609955513 4857054167122 Hedera Helix (S) | Variegated Ivy Malorie Malorie doesn’t take crap from anybody, she’s a high powered lawyer who will sue your ass if you even look at her funny. Malorie grew up in a difficult household so she’s no stranger to hard times and literally climbed out of poverty through sheer will. Malorie’s area of practice is divorce, her father left her mother with nothing and skipped town - she never forgot it. So now she makes sure all her clients get as much as they can get. Such a trailblazer! The variegated Ivy is originally from the Canary Islands and the Atlantic coasts of northern Africa. This hardy plant is excels at trailing in difficult areas due to it being a vigorous grower. Give this lady a shed and she'll can cover that unsightly thing in no-time. Although she's popular in garden beds and on patios, Malorie will do just fine indoors, too! The Marengo Ivy is not fussy about conditions, she is okay with a bright spot or even part shade. She has no real soil requirements and watering care need not be pedantic.

And boy, has she traveled: from Java, Indonesia, her habitat, she was one of the first banana subspecies to be spread by humans out of Southeast Asia. Which makes her the great-great-great-grandmother of the Bananas family tree. Now that's Bananas! The name Blood banana might sound aggressive but rest assured. The origin of the Blood banana name, though, is actually cute: when Juma's leaves grow, they have this beautiful, dark red colouring to them!

You know, the one that's on a KETO diet and looks at you funny when you order a creamy donut as a side to your eggs benny. While we go about living our best life, Vera is living her fittest life and we have to admit, she's looking pretty darn good. All those workouts have given her a little bit of a prickly character but thats ok. Nothing that a chocolate bar can't fix. Oh wait...We didn't mean that Vera... Vera? Vera! The Aloe Vera plant is a succulent meaning Vera has very little need for water. Succulents store water in their stems, roots or leaves. Saving it for a not-so-rainy-day shall we say? Anyway. we think it's a pretty neat trick since all we have is that pesky water bottle we keep forgetting. Vera is also extremely difficult to kill. It's probably the Kung-Fu classes... And a hard worker too! She's putting those looks and muscles to work for you by purifying your air. No wonder this versatile plant was popular among the likes of Cleopatra and Alexander the Great.

Jack is a Ficus Robusta Burgundy which, if you ask us, really is one of the most modern looking plants that money can buy. Jack looks good in any room setting. We have a Jack in the office and we love it. His leaves are tall, firm and have a beautiful deep color. Jack is originally from the rainforest of South-East Asia. He told us he visited Thailand, Malaysia and India during a recent back packing trip. Last year he was spotted jacking around in the South-America as well. A real globetrotter. 25 55 Average Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every 3 years Once a month (spring & summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-robusta http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ficustinekewebinneptune.png?v=1587574148 4857055477842 Peace Lily Domino | Spathiphyllum (M) Ricardo Tanned. Chiseled chest. Hips of a god. Rhythm of the Devil - Ricardo will make any woman’s knees weak and a few men uncomfortably intrigued. Ricardo rolls his “r”s like the ocean rolls in tides and he stops to dance only until the sun has come up. Ricardo’s from a tropical part of the world with a name you can never properly pronounce. Legend has it he learnt to salsa before he learnt to walk and his first word was “Olé!” Ricardo's roots are in South America, but caramba! He will do just fine in any Canadian household! He's a beautiful Spathiphyllum (we know, its a jaw breaker), and more commonly referred to as the Peace Lily Domino. We're guessing Ricardo's got his domino name because of his cute freckles but it might also be because he runs a secret high stakes gambling ring together with Mojo. In any case, Ricardo doesn't need much from you, just some water from time to time. He'll tell you when by dropping his leaves. It's a bit of a drama move, but so befitting Ricardo! 15 40 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every three years In summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peace-lily-domino-spathiphyllum-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DominoSpathPeaceLily6inpot.png?v=1609956118 4832111099986 Asplenium Crispy Wave | Birds Nest Fern (S) Mowgli Besides amazing air purifying capabilities Mowgli is most comonly known for his wavy leaves. We've seen a bunch of girls looking in awe at those amazing locks of green. Did you know that those leaves will grow from the crown outward when a new leaf emerges? The Asplenium Crispy Wave Fern always has a big and full set of leaves because of it. His passport may say Asplenium Nidus but to friends he'll always be known as Mowgli. He does have a tendency to disappear into the jungle for a few days, but we've talked to him about it and he promised to stay put from now on. The Asplenium or Birds Nest Fern is a plant that doesn't like to be in the spotlight and would rather be in the shade. Just because he's hiding doesn't mean Mowgli doesn't love you! He'll shower you with fresh oxygen from his corner of the room as a token of his appreciation. Isn't that lovely! 10 15 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/asplenium-crispy-wave-birds-nest-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/JapaneseAspleniumNidusCrispyWaveFern4inpot.png?v=1609955318 4810604937298 Sansevieria Black Gold Hahnii | Birds Nest Snake Plant (S) Jay Jay is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Jay is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Jay and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Jay, such a low maintenance guy. Jay also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Jay does not need any plant food. Gosh Jay, what's not to like here? Not so sure about this whole plant parent thing? Ease into it then by getting yourself a snake plant! Sansevieria plants are having a bit of a moment so you'd be a hip plant parent right out of the gate! The name Snake plant might sound daunting, but rest assured: Snakes are sssssssuper easy to maintain and we've made this green amigo promise  it  won't strangle you in your sleep. These low maintenance houseplants only need water about once a month and can be left in moderate to bright light. When you’re watering yours, check to see if the soil is dry a few inches deep before watering again. Overwatering can lead to soft, brown mushy leaves and snakes really don't appreciate mushy leaves. It totally messes up their vibes. 10 18 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-black-gold-hahnii-birds-nest-snake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BirdsNestSnakePlant-4inchpot.png?v=1609956388 4716457459794 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (S) Carl This beautiful and special fern is originally from New Zealand and South-East Asia but his name is Greek. 'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy! Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management. 10 15 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright but no direct sunlight Non-toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/nephrolepis-exaltata-boston-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Bostonfern4inpot.png?v=1609955386 4706984984658 Hoya Carnosa Crimson Queen | Wax Plant (S) Jessica Jessica is a go getter. She started her career long ago as a movie and TV extra in L.A. but she's a gal with big ambitions. Back in the day she says she would juggle her time between countless auditions and being a bartender in a strip club bar near Long Beach. These days, Jessica is the lead actress in many Hollywood blockbuster movies and even has a Wax Bar. Its a strange combo but hey, you work it, girl! Get ready to say "yaasss" to the Hoya Krimson Queen! This beautiful, variegated Hoya Carnosa is a visual treat, really! Jessica's lovely foliage features light and dark green tones with strawberry cream markings if treated well. Talking about care, make sure you let Jessica tan somewhere with bright, indirect sunlight. Also, don't forget to water her once a week but DON'T over do it. Coming from L.A., Jessica doesn't like the rain that much! 10 18 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-carnosa-crimson-queen-wax-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HoyaCrimsonQueenpot.png?v=1609955884 4620850036818 Ficus Pumila | Creeping Fig (S) Chris Chris is an outlier, a rebel among his family, a thrill-seeker. While his cousins, Eileen and Gemma, spend all day being Instafamous, Chris prefers to hit the road and climb the most beautiful West Coast mountains. His favourite spot? Squamish, of course! Chris knows Eileen sometimes gets mad at him for not uploading his awesome adventures, but for him it's all about living in the moment. Amen!! Chris loooves climbing. Place this Ficus Pumila, or Creeping Fig, in a bright location near a wall and nothing will stop him. Well, almost nothing. You see, Chris also enjoys chillin' in a hanging basket, where he can let his long hair flow without giving a damn! Just be careful because even though Chris is an easy-going plant, he tends to get a bit uncomfortable with pets. 10 20 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/creeping-fig-bellus-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Creepingfigbellusglad.png?v=1609955578 4564110868562 Crassula | Jade Plant (M) Wendy So you think you can dance? Wait until you see Wendy. She first became famous in her native South Africa where she went viral with TikTok moves no one could copy. Wendy really puts the 'sun' in Sunday with her love of sunshine and light. She's low maintenance while still being the star of the show on your south-facing window sill. Such a bright gal! Wendy is real popular in South Africa where she grows in abundance. Wendy is a hardcore succulent, which means she has a badass superpower: she. is. TOUGH. Forgot to water her for a few weeks? Wendy shrugs it off like its no big deal. Accidentally put her in the fridge? No biggie. Left her at the tanning salon? She can handle it. Wendy is a roommate that will never ask you to turn the music down or warn you that you're eating too many carbs. Easy like a Sunday morning! 15 27 https://plantsome.ca/products/crassula-jade-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Jade6inwebnewpot.png?v=1609955938 4421677383762 Chamaedorea Seifrizi | Reed Palm (XL) Vicky Vicky's got attitude in spades. This girl will want you to give her the primo spot at the window sill and won't settle for anything less. She relegates cacti and succulents to kitchens and side tables and is not impressed by the big monstera in the corner. This parlour palm is here to stay and she wants all your other green amigos to know it, too! Her huge green leaves tower over most other green amigos which makes for a pretty stunning centre piece in your living room. Don't match Vicky to your couch, match your couch to Vicky! That's how she likes it. Vicky's native lands are Mexico and Guatemala but don't worry, she's very comfortable in Canadian households. In fact, the Parlour Palm as Vicky's called in regular parlance, has been a popular choice in homes all over the world since the Victorian age! How Vicky has been able to maintain her popularity for so long remains a mystery but we think it has something to do with that fantastic foliage. You grow girl! 30 130 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 3 years Once a month during spring & summer https://plantsome.ca/products/parlour-palm http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Reed_palm_Web_with_victoria.png?v=1583868562 4902390595666 Dracaena Marginata Tricolor on Cane | Dragon Tree (S) Priscilla Priscilla is aloof. It’s not that she doesn’t pay attention, it’s more that she doesn’t give things enough attention. Plants like Priscilla aren’t gorgeous in the conventional way, no that’s too boring, too common, they’re gorgeous in their own way. Priscilla never understands why people are always looking at her, she thinks it’s because she’s odd-looking but it’s completely the opposite. Alfredo is always shooting her weird looks and Gino can’t stop gazing at her. Priscilla is tall, thin and striking - heads always turn but Priscilla tries not to notice as she turns her head down. Dracaena Marginata Tricolor (Madagascar Dragon Tree) is an eye-catching evergreen shrub adorned with cream and crimson coloured leaves. During springtime, tiny white flowers begin to bloom that eventually give way to yellowy-orange berries. Though we should say Priscilla can be shy about blooming these berries if she’s grown indoors but that doesn't stop us from trying! Priscilla enjoys her morning sun and afternoon shade, she’s not a fan of direct light as it’s too much of a spotlight for her. Give this girl the right amount of love (and size pot) and this girl can grow up to an attention grabbing 15ft tall! Speaking of attention -- she doesn't like to talk about it, but Priscilla is listed as an air purifying powerhouse by none other than NASA!  10 38 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-tricolor-on-cane-dragon-tree-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaMarginataTricolor4inpot_85a00ad1-7b1c-4653-9aa9-912b057b1beb.png?v=1609955633 4869459443794 Norfolk Island Pine (M) Arthur Arthur’s a happy-go-lucky kind of pine. Talking about politics? He’s asleep. Complaining about your commute? He’s comatose. Droning on about the weather as if you didn’t know that winter happens every year? His funeral is at four. All Arthur wants is clean water, good lighting, and happy faces. So relax and have a good time, because every season is the season to be jolly when Arthur’s around. Arthur may look good in your Christmas photo but he hails from the tropics. Think bright light and high humidity. Keep his soil evenly moist but don’t drown him. Keep him cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Swap his red nose and sparkly ornaments for a pair of shades and a floral t-shirt to emphasize his easy, breezy attitude. He loves it! 15 38 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 3-4 years Biweekly during growing season https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine6inpot.png?v=1609956055 4524338479186 Croton Petra (M) Lee-Anne The Croton Petra is not the most air purifying plant that you'll find but fear not. Just like any other plant, Lee-Anne will turn Carbon Dioxide into oxygen for you. With Lee-Anne you'll have a happy houseplant no matter what. The Asian beauty Croton Petra is one of the prettiest girls in the classroom. Lee-Anne may look innocent but she has a rebellious streak for sure! If anyone asks, yes she enjoys visits to the salon for a new look. How else would she change those colors all the time? We see right through you Lee-Anne! 15 42 Lightly air purifying Bright spot with no direct sunlight Lightly poisonous Once every two years Once per month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/croton-petra-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CrotonPetra6inpot.png?v=1609955584 4808644132946 Dracaena Gold Dust (S) Pete Aliens exist. Pete swears by it! It all happened one warm summer’s night in July. Pete was out near his ranch when he saw them! Three bright lights travelling in formation, no way was it government or civilian craft. Then out of nowhere he was covered in warm light. He can’t remember much about what happened next, but he remembers what they looked like. Like small children with big massive heads. Pete tried to get people to listen but they wouldn’t believe him, not even the mark on his chest that he promises wasn’t there before. When not on his ranch, you can find Pete at U.F.O conventions with other fellow abductees. They call themselves “The Chosen Ones”. The Gold Dust Dracaena boasts glossy green leaves that are covered in white and gold spots and patches - probably where the aliens stuck their probes. Pete originates from the rain forest regions of West Africa, which is great for homes with low lighting as Pete is used to thick canopies covering the sun. Pete only needs to be watered once or twice a week and should be kept in well draining soil. Too little or too much water can cause Pete to lose his leaves, as can not believing his alien theories about “why they’re here”. 10 25 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-gold-dust-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaGoldDust4inpot.png?v=1609955643 4658750029906 Dieffenbachia Perfection (S) Jeff If you think all plants look alike, look again: Jeff (Dieffenbachia Perfection) has leaves so unique you can't even find them in other plants of the same species! Talk about a super limited edition! Coming from the real Amazon, Jeff delivers prime air the same day you order him, and is sure to kindle your fire for botany. Jeff should be on the cover of Forbes every year. His are leaves totally different from the competition and he can clear the air around any office. Did we mention he also hates shady environments and never complains about work? Jeff loves moist environments, which makes him a great conversation partner at the watercooler. Just be forewarned: although he minds its business and does not gossip, Jeff's still a poisonous plant. And why wouldn't he be!? It's a jungle out there! 10 20 Very frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Every two years Once every two weeks in Summer https://plantsome.ca/products/dieffenbachia-perfection-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dieffperfect4inpot.png?v=1609955598 4658681872466 Peace Lily | Spathiphyllum (S) Lilly Lilly has an exotic figure. When she works out she purifies the air for you so it's a win for Lilly and a win for you. Her air purifying qualities come mostly from the size of her leaves. She loves to produce oxygen with it but they also work to extract harmful substances from the air. In return for all this magic she does require some love and attention. You can have years of fun with Lilly just be sure to give her enough water and sunlight. Lilly's roots are in South America, but she will do just fine in any Canadian household. She is a beautiful Spathiphyllum, and more commonly referred to as the Peace Lily. We think it is because of her beautiful and peaceful white flowers. Or maybe it's cause she was the most well-behaved character in that series, Sex and The Lily. 10 45 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every three years In summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peace-lily-spathiphyllum-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/peacelily4inpot.png?v=1609956111 4589673807954 Dracaena Janet Craig Compacta (L) Mojo What the heck does Mojo even mean? Mojo is an African word that describes inner power. Your swag, your shine, your sparkle, you know? What's Mojo's inner power, you ask? Mojo has turned air purifying into an art. He sneaks up on bad substances like a ninja and renders them harmless! Benzenes better hide when Mojo's around because he'll attack them straight on. Mojo is lightly poisonous, so repeat after me: with pets a go-go, Mojo is a no-no from the get-go. In Africa, this Dracaena has to survive in a pretty tough environment. Thus, it's no surprise that Mojo can easily flourish with little light. He also likes to brag that he can reach heights of up to 15 feet where he comes from. Worry not, Mojo won't go supersize on you in his pot. However, if you repot him frequently there is almost no stopping him. This one will never lose its Mojo. 21 60 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-compacta-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Janetcraigcompacta8infranco.png?v=1609955656 4510493409362 Pachira Aquatica | Money Tree (XL) Bucky Movie viper Gordon Gekko once said that greed is good. We, on the other hand, like to think that green is good. If you're not one to frown on making a little dough, though, Bucky's a keeper. For real! The Chinese say this fella (Pachira Aquatica) brings luck and guards treasures better than any safe. Bucky will also keep the air around you cleaner than a tax audit. So, consider Bucky an investment. Although not swimming in money like Uncle Scrooge, Bucky is quite the bon vivant in the botanical jet set. In South America, where the Pachira Aquatica comes from, Bucky thrives in riverbanks (and judging by its popular name, Money Tree, maybe in regular banks too?) and can even turn into a fancy tree, 30 meters high and all. His flowers can replace cocoa, but you'd better stick to the chocolate: the Pachira juice, like certain bonds, is moderately toxic. 25 120 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot - no direct sunlight Moderately toxic Smaller ones - every year Once a month during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pachira-aquatica http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pachira_with_blue_diamond_web.png?v=1583798963 4688650698834 Scindapsus Pictus | Satin Pothos (M) Miley Miley is the type that loves to just hang around. In tropical forests you'll find her chilling under the canopy of large trees so she is used to low light environments. That's great because the corner spot on the window sill is usually already taken up by your other plants (or plans for plants), right!? Its not common to see a plant so stunning that is yet so easy to care for but Miley is definitely one of them. She's a great hanging plant but will do just fine in a regular pot as well. Her leaves have an almost 'satin' feel to them and her silver spots are a sight to behold. We commend her almost daily when we walk into the office here at Plantsome. Yep, she's a stunner and she knows it. "I can't help it, they grow on my leaves naturally."

If that's too technical: Gus is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Gus and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Gus, such a low maintenance guy. Gus also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Gus does not need any plant food. Gosh Gus, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Gus can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Gus is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Gus doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Gus hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Gus really popular. us purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juiccccce. 21 65 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-zeylanica-snake-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Zeylanica_8_inch_web_on_ellis.png?v=1604434509 4817066066002 Hedera (S) | Marengo Ivy Malorie Malorie doesn’t take crap from anybody, she’s a high powered lawyer who will sue your ass if you even look at her funny. Malorie grew up in a difficult household so she’s no stranger to hard times and literally climbed out of poverty through sheer will. Malorie’s area of practice is divorce, her father left her mother with nothing and skipped town - she never forgot it. So now she makes sure all her clients get as much as they can get. Such a trailblazer! The Marengo Ivy is originally from the Canary Islands and the Atlantic coasts of northern Africa. This hardy plant is excels at trailing in difficult areas due to it being a vigorous grower. Give this lady a shed and she'll can cover that unsightly thing in no-time. Although she's popular in garden beds and on patios, Malorie will do just fine indoors, too! The Marengo Ivy is not fussy about conditions, she is okay with a bright spot or even part shade. She has no real soil requirements and watering care need not be pedantic.

Contrary to other species in her family (Epipremnum Aureum), Aura does not blossom due to a genetic bug no Ctrl+Alt+Del could solve. She is also considered a plague due to being nearly impossible to kill and staying green even when kept out of the light. Pretty much the lovechild of the Grinch with Bruce Willis in that Christmas movie. No wonder people also call her the Devil's Ivy. The dark side of the bloom (not to be confused with that Pink Floyd record your weird uncle told you about) never looked greener. And unlike your stoner uncle or the Gilmour-Troubled Waters relationship, Aura has aged well: she's been around at least since 1880, which officially makes her older than knock knock jokes. And she still has the hots! If you're looking for a pet that outlasts you, look no further: Aura is what songs like "I will survive" are all about. Not only is she cold, she's blasé like Beyoncé: leave her to burn in the sun and Aura will still behave like she's totally lovin' it, her heart-shaped leaves all out like it's for that super chill selfie. 15 28 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/neon-pothos-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NeonPothosHanging6inpot.png?v=1609956280 4567689658450 Senecio Peregrinus | String of Dolphins (S) Flip A plant with dolphin-shaped leaves?! Yup! In our opinion, the Senecio Peregrinus is the coolest plant of the moment. If you look at Flip's leaves, you will immediately understand why everyone calls him the 'Dolphin Plant'. Flip is just a lot of fun to hang around with - makes you feel kinda like your in a wholesome Disney adventure - you know the kind where everything just works out in the end. Flip, flip, flip ... we're a super-freaking-flippin' fan of you! His dolphin leaves are of course the most special thing about this green amigo but how do you take care of a plant with leaves shaped like a dolphin? You might think that Flip the Dolphin Plant needs a lot of water, WRONG! Sorrry, we didn't mean to yell. This green amigo is a cross between the Pea Plant and the Senecio Articularis, and is therefore a succulent. Water just a little, because Flip doesn't want to drown!

Gemma is actually one of Evelyn and Eileen's cousins and loves to brag about how she'll have more followers on instagram than they do one day. Right now she's still a tiny baby but her powerful roots allow her to grow quickly. Just give her enough indirect light and she'll grow grow grow on you! There's more to this girl than meets the eye. You see, Gemma here actually has some pretty dark roots! In the native forests that grow the Ficus Altissima, Gemma is known as a strangler tree. That's right, Gemma will germinate on top of an existing tree to eventually overtake it completely. We've talked to her about her past and she's promised not to do any strangling at Plantsome, or at your home! 15 25 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-altissima-council-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusAltissimaCouncilTreepot.png?v=1609955765 4785086169170 Ficus Benjamina Barok | Curly Weeping Fig (M) Finneas Finneas wasn’t always like this. He was considered cool once. A lead singer of a local band, coached his younger brother’s soccer team, president of the student association. The works. But then she left him. We don’t mention her name but she was the best thing that ever happened to him and our Finneas just hasn’t been the same after that. Oh the weeping! He’s still the lead singer, in fact they’re going on a world tour because the break up songs he wrote went viral! Can you give him a shoulder to cry on? The Curly Weeping Fig (Ficus Benjamina Barok) is commonly grown as an indoor plant or in an office due to its great tolerance for limited light conditions. Finneas loves the dark, he feels as though without her he can’t bear to stand the light. Finneas has thick and glossy dark leaves that he may shed when he’s feeling really depressed. So deffo no mentioning of what happened. Finneas is awesome for removing air toxins, even though he can bring the mood down, he’s probably just absorbing it all that’s why. When it comes to watering, make sure his soil doesn’t dry out, especially during the growing season. 15 43 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/curly-weeping-fig-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CurlyWeepingFig6inpot.png?v=1609955592 4869451579474 Spider Plant | Chlorophytum Comosum (S) Bertie Jr. This easy going companion is really good at getting rid of harmful substances. NASA even rated him five stars for it! Bert will remove Benzenes, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide from the air. Bert is quite thirsty but doesn't have a lot of demands beyond that. What a lovely guy. The Chlorophytum is also known as the spider plant, and is truly one of the easiest air cleaners for your house. We call him Easy Bert because he's so so easy to maintain! He likes the lighter, brighter spots in your home, but he'll do just fine in darker spots. Give this green amigo some water every week, but if you miss a watering sesh- no need to worry about being strangled by Bert. 10 22 Frequently - weekly Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight non-toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/spider-plant-chlorophytum-comosum-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ChlorophytumComosumSpiderPlant4inpot.png?v=1609955865 4586776494162 Spider Plant | Chlorophytum Comosum (M) Bert This easy going companion is really good at getting rid of harmful substances. NASA even rated him five stars for it! Bert will remove Benzenes, formaldehyde and carbon monoxide from the air. Bert is quite thirsty but doesn't have a lot of demands beyond that. Easy Bertie! The Chlorophytum is also known as the spider plant, and is truly one of the easiest air cleaners for your house. We commonly call him Easy Bert because he's also really easy to maintain. Even though he likes the lighter spots in the house, he won't wither in the shadow either! Give him some water twice per week and a mist once a week. He won't complain if you miss one - so, no need to worry about being strangled by Bert. 15 28 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight non-toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/spider-plant-chlorophytum-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ChloraphytumComosumCurlySpiderPlant6inpot.png?v=1609956431 4612607770706 Monstera Adansonii (M) | Monkey Mask Abab If Abab was a person, he'd be an angry short seller who's always yelling profanities into his phone to whoever's on the other line (and just lost a million bucks because of him). We like plant Abab much better, with his glossy green leaves and distinctive fenestrations (a fancy word for holes). But if Abab got his way we’d ship him off to New York and put him in a corner office with a bunch of traders and brokers shouting “Sell, sell, sell!” and hurling insults that would make even some presidents blush. There’s now a rumour going around the Plantsome office that he once tried to sell cuttings of his bigger brother Alfredo. The fact that Eileen outed him is Abab’s deepest regret, that and not being planted before bitcoin was a thing. Abab is a swiss cheese plant with drooping, heart shaped leaves. They're beautiful trailing plants that grow quickly when taken care of properly. You'll find Adansonii's like Abab growing naturally in South and Central America and the West Indies, but Abab never fit in with his siblings. All they could ever agree on was that indirect light is best. For Abab living the fast life on Wall Street is where he really belongs. And you know what, we can't blame him.  I t's a jungle out there! 15 36 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-adansonii-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Devanadansonii6inhangingpot.png?v=1609956015 4569172443218 Dracaena Janet Craig Cane (XXL) Mojo What the heck does Mojo even mean? Mojo is an African word that describes inner power. Your swag, your shine, your sparkle, you know? What's Mojo's inner power, you ask? Mojo has turned air purifying into an art. He sneaks up on bad substances like a ninja and renders them harmless! Benzenes better hide when Mojo's around because he'll attack them straight on. Mojo is lightly poisonous, so repeat after me: with pets a go-go, Mojo is a no-no from the get-go. In Africa, this Dracaena has to survive in a pretty tough environment. Thus, it's no surprise that Mojo can easily flourish with little light. He also likes to brag that he can reach heights of up to 15 feet where he comes from! 25 115 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-cane-xxl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Janetcraigwebinvictoria.png?v=1587574088 4393656877138 Ficus Lyrata (XL) Eileen Eileen has like a million followers on instagram. Yep you heard it, Eileen is instafamous. She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves always get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Eileen is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Eileen, or the Ficus Lyrata, is commonly referred to as a Fiddle Leaf Fig. Get it? Fiddle...Leaf...Fig. On Saturday nights you'll find her at underground deep house dance clubs but on Sunday she loves to put on the jazzy tunes. But don't shy away from pop songs either. Let her listen to your favorite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She loves those too! Go Eileen! 25 90 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic to pets Every 1-2 years Every time you water (except in winter) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-lyrata http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusLyrataBush10inpot.png?v=1609955788 4792425283666 Sansevieria Fernwood Mikado (S) Jude Jude is a bit of a board game geek. As he grew taller and taller he graduated from Snakes and Ladders to Gloomhaven and Pandemic. Though he hasn't touched that last one in a little while. Go figure! Sansevieria Ferwnood Mikado are native to Nigeria and the Congo region to be exact. These beautiful and playful spires are easy to care for. Bright or a bit darker spots of your home are equally fine for Jude.Be careful when watering this guy. The most common issue is too much TLC! Overwatering leads to root rot and Jude's eventual demise. Oh and don't buy this guy a new home every year. Repot only when his roots break his current pot. Who knew plants could be such good communicators? 10 25 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-fernwood-mikado-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FernwoodMikadoSnakePlant4inpot.png?v=1609956577 4643219374162 Alocasia Amazonica | African Mask (M) Tiki You know that Brady Bunch episode when the gang goes to Hawaii and Bobby finds an old Hawaiin Idol that brings bad luck to whoever touches it? Let's just say cultural sensitivity in the 70's wasn't what it is today. Well, Alocasia Amazonica or Tiki is kinda similar - she's not from the Amazon at all - but was created in a Florida nursery in the 50's by crossing A. longiloba and A. sanderiana. And to top it off many people feel they have been cursed by bad luck when they realize how difficult it can be to look after these plants. Oh, Tiki! Tiki's striking appearance is what makes her so popular. Those long, dark leaves with creamy white veins can grow to up to 40 cm in length. When Tiki is happy she is an absolute stunner but keeping her happy can be a challenge. She likes lots and lots (and lots and lots) of bright, indirect sunlight - as much as she can get. And keep her away from drafts, no one wants to catch a cold these days and the same is true for Tiki! Like a lot of tropicals water is important - her soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. If you are really good to her, Tiki will reward your efforts by flowering. Thank you Tiki! 15 38 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic!

The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Amelia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying the skies in her Lockheed Vega, but she's retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Amelia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Amelia's known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. Obey that and she'll look like Amelian dollars. 21 30 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-aureum-pothos-gold-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosGold8inpot.png?v=1609956269 4421693898834 Peace Lily | Spathiphyllum (L) Lilly Lilly has an exotic figure. When she works out she purifies the air for you so it's a win for Lilly and a win for you. Her air purifying qualities come mostly from the size of her leaves. She loves to produce oxygen with it but they also work to extract harmful substances from the air. In return for all this magic she does require some love and attention. You can have years of fun with Lilly just be sure to give her enough water and sunlight. Lilly's roots are in South America, but she will do just fine in any Canadian household. She is a beautiful Spathiphyllum, and more commonly referred to as the Peace Lily. We think it is because of her beautiful and peaceful white flowers. Or maybe it's cause she was the most well-behaved character in that series, Sex and The Lily. 21 70 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every three years In summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peace-lily-spathiphyllum http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Peace_lily_web_with_dimple.png?v=1583864192 4792389992530 Calathea White Star (M) Frida She’s breathtaking! Because the white and pink stripes on their leaves look like brush strokes, Calathea White Stars are often compared to paintings. Bringing Frida home is a bit like having a living work of art—and Frida knows a little something about art. She aims to paint the most important, and tragic, events in her life as a plant: “Rootbound”, “Self Portrait of Me Being Overwatered”, and “Me and My Owner, Who Knows Exactly What They Did.” Calathea White Stars are low light plants, which makes them perfect for indoor growing in those less than ideal plant corners of your room. As for Frida, she expects to be treated with kindness and respect. She likes high humidity, having her leaves misted, and getting watered just enough for her soil to be moist at all times. Too much water will lead to root rot and Frida does not like wet feet, or any feet for that matter! 15 26 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-white-star-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaWhitestar6inpot.png?v=1609955479 4785222352978 Philodendron Brazil (L) Miguel Arrrriba amigos! One of our favourite plants, the one and only Miguel, has migrated to British Columbia to have a go at the Rocky Mountains. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him and we’re sure our fellow British Columbians won’t mind having a captive...I mean friendly audience to drone on and on to...I mean talk to about our beautiful province. Just remember to throw Miguel a compliment or two in the middle of your craft beer presentation, ok? His leaves! Though there are thousands of species of Philodendron, the Scandens Brazil stands out for its stunning green and yellow leaves. Perhaps Miguel can tell you about them after you two visit your tenth biking trail. Miguel would also like to tell you that he likes both a little direct sunlight and a little shade, and to sit in moist soil. He definitely came to the right place!  Why not give him a moss covered support so he can practice his climbing skills? He was a professional back in the jungle, which you would know if you paused your Nickelback playlist long enough to listen to anything he said. 21 33 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-brazil-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronBrazil8inpot.png?v=1609956183 4644608409682 Calathea Ornata (M) Pink Pink always wants to go for drinks and party hard. Weekends or workdays, it don't matter much to her! And she doesn't discriminate either. You'll find her in underground dance clubs one day and an upscale jazz bar the next. She tends to bring an entourage of Calathea sisters everywhere she goes that is sure to draw a crowd. So if you're thinking of bringing her home, be prepared to meet her sisters too! Pink is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Julia, Brooke, Sophia and Susie. In fact, this pretty lady's got something not many plants have, pink stripes! But don't be fooled, it is hard work getting her to put those big beautiful leaves out. Just like any rock star there is a list of demands: a bright spot, no direct sunlight, regular misting of the leaves, fertilizer in summer and a little bit of water at just the right time! Fortunately she's a great communicator and will furl up her leaves to tell you she's thirsty!  15 33 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-ornata-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Calatheaunkown2boule.png?v=1609955511 4704870105170 Red Fountain Aglaonema (S) Ruby Everybody loves Ruby. She's that gorgeous, easy going girl full of laughter and joy that you just want to be with all day every day. She knows how to have a good time, every time. Go figure with leaves like that! The Red Aglaonema not only has one of the most beautiful, colourful foliage you've ever (ever, ever!) seen but she's also elegantly simple. Honestly, Ruby doesn't even care that much about getting a tan! Yup, you heard it right. All that beautiful red comes so naturally to her she just shines in the shade! Low to medium light conditions are good enough for this red babe, but we do recommend you give her at least some bright, indirect light ;) to really make those leaves pop like little red velvet cupcakes on a summers day! Yumm! 10 20 Moderate Strong air purifying Partial shade Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/red-fountain-aglaonema-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RedFountainAglaonema4inpot.png?v=1609955235 4657167761490 Monstera Deliciosa | Swiss Cheese (XL) Alfredo Alfredo is a Monstera Deliciosa which is commonly referred to as a Swiss Cheese Plant, Swiss Cheese Vine and Five holes plant. All these names gave Alfredo a bit of an identity crisis. To top it all off, botanists once lumped him in with the wrong family! Fortunately the record has been set straight and we know he's part of the Monstera family. It was all very stressful for Alfredo so we've agreed not to bring it up to him again. Can you help us keep that promise? 25 68 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-deliciosa-swiss-cheese-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MonsteraDeliciosaBspec10inpot.png?v=1609956022 4564852998226 Sansevieria Zeylanica | Snake Plant (XL) Gus Gus is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Gus is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Gus and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Gus, such a low maintenance guy. Gus also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Gus does not need any plant food. Gosh Gus, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Gus can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Gus is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Gus doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Gus hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Gus really popular. us purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juiccccce. 25 80 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-zeylanica-snake-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaZeylanicaSnake3Gpot.png?v=1609956418 4393685745746 Joshua Tree Cane Yucca (XL) Johnny Johnny has mastered the art of chill. Johnny is one of those easy going guys that everyone loves to hang out with. He doesn't drink much and does not need a lot of plant food either. Put him in a sunny spot and Johnny's happy. Just be careful with Pets, Johnny is a poisonous plant. Yeeeeeehaw! Johnny was born and raised in the arid lands of Central and North America and is especially common in the Yucca valley close to the world famous Joshua Tree National Park. Johnny is often mistaken to be part of the palm family but he's set the record straight with us. Johnny is actually a member of the succulent family. Johnny is used to the dry deserts of Texas which makes him very easy to maintain and take care of. 25 120 Very little Light air purifying Direct sun Toxic Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/joshua-tree-cane-yucca http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/JoshuaTreeCaneYucca3Gpot.png?v=1609955964 4856811946066 Pothos Jade Pearl (S) Aurora Aura's chill sister, Aurora is the laid-back one. Sure, like all Epipremnum Aureum (that's her royalty name), Aurora digs being in the spotlight, but not if that means direct sunlight or paparazzi flashes. Kind of like the Pippa to Aura's Kate. You grow, girl! Aurora is the nerdy type who loves to read about what NASA is up to these days. In fact, she was even featured in a viral NASA article once, about air purifying plants! Like most nerds, Aurora too hates to leave the house, and would rather have her sunlight filtered through a window. Otherwise, if you give her a lot of light, Aurora will wither like a vampire in the sun, or that kid in school that one time his crush caught him doing the Spock Hand Sign (cue sad trombone sound effect). 10 14 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/pothos-jade-pearl-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PearlsandJadePothos4inpot.png?v=1609956285 4771769679954 Dracaena Marginata (S) | Dragon Tree Noah Noah is an easy going one. He does not drink much and does not need to be in the sun. This is nice for all you north facing urban dwellers out there. Noah does not take well to Pets because he is slightly poisonous. Beyond that, Noah is a pretty chill dude and excellent at purifying the air. Thanks Noah! Noah's a bit of an oddball in the plant world. Not a big fan of a manicured look, Noah tends to let his leaves hang anywhere and everywhere. It gives him a bit of a tough-guy appearance but honestly, he's a softie with a big heart. Noah's officially a Dracaena Marginata but who's keeping score right? Noah loves to hang out in pretty much any room or corner which makes him an easy going dude. Now that's an easy plant to fall in love with! 10 30 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-s-dragon-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaMarginata4inpot.png?v=1609955666 4766976606290 Sansevieria Zeylanica | Snake Plant (S) Gus Gus is your gateway plant to plant parenthood.

He told us he learned that we all need to find peace and harmony between mankind and nature. Well amen brother, we're with you. The Dracaena Sanderiana belongs to the family of Asparagaceae and please don't ask us to pronounce it. We tried using it in scrabble but we ran out of vowels. Anyhow, if you think she's got a weird family name then hold on, because it gets even weirder. The Sanderiana was named after a German Scientist, but is a famous plant in India, where it is mostly imported from China, where they grow them as 'Lucky bamboo', even though it isn't a bamboo at all. Gosh, plant life can be so confusing. 15 35 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-sanderiana-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ribbonplant6inweb.png?v=1609955677 4650186440786 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (XXL) Carl This beautiful and special fern is originally from New Zealand and South-East Asia but his name is Greek. 'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy! Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and he's still easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management. 25 55 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright but no direct sunlight Non-toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/nephrolepis-exaltata-boston-fern-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BostonFern3Gweb.png?v=1609955381 4618638524498 Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (XL) Wilson Wilson not only provides a natural atmosphere, but also a healthy working and living environment. So much so that NASA has included this fella in the top 10 most air-purifying plants in the world. The Ficus is even in it twice, because not only it is an air-purifying plant, but it also converts CO2 into oxygen, which ensures better air quality. That's pure will, son! The more the better is Wilson's Mantra. He prances the Plantsome office filled with pride about how he has more leaves than any other plant! We haven't done an official count and especially the palm family feels differently about it, but we have to admit he does have lots of them! Just like all other Ficus plants, Wilson is a real air purifying pro. A little sunshine and some water will bring you and Wilson happiness for years to come! 25 120 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-benjamina-weeping-fig-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusWeepingTrunk3Gpot.png?v=1609956520 4862555455570 Sansevieria Francisii |Snake Plant (M) Mimi Mimi is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Mimi is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering Mimi and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Mimi, such a low maintenance girl. Mimi also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Mimi does not need any plant food. Gosh Mimi, what's not to like here? Not so sure about this whole plant parent thing? Mimi is your perfect starter plant. These green amigos are more commonly called Snake plants or Mother in Laws Tongue. But don't worry, Mimi here won't won't strangle you in your sleep (like a snake, or your mother in law would). These low maintenance houseplants only need water about once a month and can be left in moderate to bright light. When you’re watering yours, check to see if the soil is dry a few inches deep before watering again. Overwatering can lead to soft, brown mushy leaves and snake plants really don't appreciate mushy leaves. It totally messes up their vibes. 15 28 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-francisii-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaFrancisii6inpot.png?v=1609956375 4732726476882 Asparagus Meyersii | Foxtail Fern (M) Dylan Contrary to what his predecessors were doing, this Aspargus Setaceus isn't so occupied with air purifying. He's still a real cutie but we've found him to be quite a lazy one. I guess some are just blessed with looks and that's ok! Is it a cobweb? No it's Dylan! He looks a little frazzled but he really isn't. Dylan is a hybrid between a fern and an asparagus plant but don't expect to put any food on the table. Dylan does not provide! 15 38 Average Low air purifying No direct sunlight, shaded Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks, during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/asparagus-meyerii-foxtail-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FoxtailFern6inpot.png?v=1609955828 4657231691858 Variegated Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (L) Nielson When Nielson was little, he wanted to become a Plantstronaut. He wanted to plant himself on the moon and become the first flying Ficus in the family. He eventually 'branched' out into other interests but when NASA awarded him the medal for top-10 most air purifying plant he got right back into the space thing. He's been making plans to colonize mars. Talk about a giant leap for plantkind! Advanced Plant Parents only! The Benjamina twins Nielson and Wilson are picky plants. It takes some dedication and perseverance to grow and prosper any Ficus, and our Nielson over here is no exception. He loved being babied at his nursery where water came at just the right time and temperature was a blissful 20-something degrees. Get him a warm and cozy spot in bright light, away from direct sunlight and some plant food in summer so you and Nielson can become fast friends. 21 60 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/variegated-ficus-benjamina-weeping-fig-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusBenjaminavariegata8inboule.png?v=1609955806 4564859519058 Zamioculcas (XL) | ZZ Plant Luke Luke is your perfect living room buddy. He doesn't need a lot of looking after and grows slowly. Some have luck, some have Luke! Luke is also slightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Besides those little quirks, Luke is pretty laid back and handles himself well in most environments. Luke is a stylish and strong guy. This African Zamioculcas is an easygoing guy that will not bother you for a while. It doesn't matter much to him where you put him and he's almost never thirsty. Luke is the perfect gift for the starting houseplant lover. Other plants are actually quite jealous of Lucas, but it doesn't bother him much. Lucas is waaaaay to chill for those jealous looks. Other plants just don't "Luke" as good. 27 75 Frequent Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-xxl-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Zamioculcas3GXLpot.png?v=1609956540 4828296052818 Ficus Benghalensis | Audrey (M) Audrey The Ficus Audrey will become Canada's next top plant. There, we said it! Our Audrey as we lovingly call her is a stunner! This particular version was grown bushy and short but Ficus Audrey plants can grow tall and tree like if that's your thing, too! You can basically train her to reach tree like proportions. And on top of that, Audrey is much easier to take care of than her relatives Evelyn and Eileen (fiddle leaf fig). Oh my, what is not to like here! The Ficus Audrey is the national plant of India where you'll find them growing to immense size. These are beautiful plants with almost silk like leaves and a beautiful white stem. We are not surprised India chose this beauty as its national plant. Audrey is stunning! 15 34 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-ficus-benghalensis-ficus-audrey-trunk-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusBenghalensi_FicusAudrey6inpot_0475beaa-70c6-441d-ba3d-4aa308ac2b04.png?v=1609956579 4589611057234 Dracaena Jade Jewel (M) Teri Guilty pleasures: Watching old episodes of Love Boat and Fantasy Island, pride in your collection of Elvis-era black velvet paintings and "reimagining" your wardrobe with the help of your Bedazzler. On that last point Teri is a rock star, a rhine-stoned Dolly Parton of a Rock Star. See, Teri is a Dracaena Jade Jewel - emphasis on the Jewel. She loves everything that glitters and gleams with Jewel tones and not-so-subtle accents. If you want to spice up your room but you're not ready for a black velvet tiger, then Teri is your best bet. Oh, and she can't get enough of watching Mr. Roark and Tattoo on Fantasy Island either. "Da plane, Da plane". So Good! Teri is a strikingly attractive plant with her long variegated leaves and a sturdy cane stalk. She is also easy to care for and is a good air purifier to boot! Dracaena like bright filtered sunlight or semi shady places - never direct sunlight. They do not require too much water and are happier if their soil is left to dry out a bit between waterings. Overall they are a very easy plant to care for and grow. The only note of caution is that they are toxic to pets and children so be careful about this. 15 32 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-jade-jewel-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaJadejewel6incoco.png?v=1609955647 4421716869202 Dracaena Lemon Lime (L) Kenzo Kenzo used to be pure negativity, but he's trying to get over it. He took one of those hipster mindfulness/meditation/goatyoga courses and now he's trying to be all about the chill. After a fight with Kenzo Jr. we had to put him on some mandatory 20 minute meditation sessions to combat his anger management issues. Do you think Kenzo will work it out? Even though he and his brother Tito aren't that close due to some family issues, Kenzo thinks that's water under the bridge. Sure, he still ruminates about the past, but Kenzo realized the only thing he can influence is the present #mindfullness, which is why he's trying to become (don't laugh) a life coach. Gee, of all the paths Kenzo could choose to leave his mark... Please help Kenzo on his journey by giving him only a little bit of water and putting him in a bright spot. Oh and out of direct sunlight please, it messes with his vibe. 21 65 Only a little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/large-dracaena-warneckei-lemon-lime http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaLemonLime8inpot.png?v=1609955664 4880120184914 Norfolk Island Pine (L) Arthur Arthur’s a happy-go-lucky kind of pine. Talking about politics? He’s asleep. Complaining about your commute? He’s comatose. Droning on about the weather as if you didn’t know that winter happens every year? His funeral is at four. All Arthur wants is clean water, good lighting, and happy faces. So relax and have a good time, because every season is the season to be jolly when Arthur’s around. Arthur may look good in your Christmas photo but he hails from the tropics. Think bright light and high humidity. Keep his soil evenly moist but don’t drown him. Keep him cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Swap his red nose and sparkly ornaments for a pair of shades and a floral t-shirt to emphasize his easy, breezy attitude. He loves it! 21 60 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 3-4 years Biweekly during growing season https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine8inpot.png?v=1609956058 4812057804882 Begonia Strawberry (S) Leroy Leroy or “The Pale Sword’ as he’s known online is the greatest hacker the northern hemisphere has ever seen. When he was 14 he narrowly missed out on ‘Juvy’ when he hacked into the school system and changed a few student’s grades to an “F”. He later claimed that they had bullied him so the judge took pity on him but really he was just jealous that they were so popular. Leroy can hack into anything, even the pentagon, which he did so but only left a word document that said “I’m watching you”. The Strawberry Begonia is a native to Asia and is covered in blue-green leaves and sends out runners like a strawberry plant. Legend has it that these runners are to prevent Leroy from being detected while he’s hacking into things. Leroy enjoys brightly lit areas that receive a lot of sunlight and preferably a spot where the wifi is good. Leroy only needs watering sparingly, he doesn’t want to get too damp when he’s in the middle of a hackathon. 10 17 Moderate Low air purifier Shade or partial shade Toxic Once every two years Once every three weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/begonia-strawberry-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BegoniaStrawberry4inpot.png?v=1609956441 4806685655122 Sedum Morganianum | String of Burritos (S) Javier The story of Javier is fraught with mystery and myth. Some say he came from an alien planet and crash landed in a giant burrito spaceship. It kind of makes sense if you think about it for a second, because the origin of the Burrito as a food is also a mystery. So consider it solved...the burrito is alien food! Javier's favourite is the Breakfast burrito. Hmmm NomNomNom! It is true that this Sedum Morganianum has never been spotted in the wild so its still a real mystery where this funny looking fella is actually from. But you obviously didn't come for the mystique, so let us tell you about how easy it is to care for this otherworldly stranger. Sedum plants are super easy to care for. They store water in their succulent leaves which means this burrito boy doesn't mind your forgetful watering habits. Keep yours away from direct sunlight as that will burn the leaves to a crisp and water occasionally when the top soil has dried out. 10 14 Little Low air purifying Bright, indirect sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/sedum-morganianum-string-of-burritos-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SedumMorganianumDonkeyTail4inpot.png?v=1609956443 4771777118290 Terrarium | L Boris We're so excited to bring you Boris the terrarium kit! We normally wouldn't advise you to keep a lid on the growth of your green amigo's and amiga's but with Boris in town, things are different! Boris has it all under control! Simply place the plants provided in this DIY kit inside, close the lid and marvel at your own home-made terrarium! Terrarium's are hot (heh) these days but we're sure you've never seen anything quite like our big and beautiful Boris! This amazing terrarium is truly a labour of love here at Plantsome. Curated with green amigos hand-picked for life in a glass dome by our in-house botanists! This lovely glass terrarium will come with a set of six plants, some organic soil mix, lava rocks for drainage. Simply plant your plants inside and create your own little urban jungle in a dome. Boris loves to be shown off but be careful when Boris gets too excited because he tips over easily which usually doesn't end well. Do not take off the lid after you've closed your Boris. Closed terrariums are self regulating since no moisture can really escape. There is no need for additional watering as long as the soil is slightly moist when you build Boris. The only time to take off the lid is if you see condensation building up. Remove the lid until the condensation disappears. Do not leave the terrarium open for more than one day.   At least 6 plants will be included. The size and type of plants may vary but will include at least one center piece plant such as a Coffea Arabica or Croton. Moss is also included! 21 30 Very little Not air purifying Bright direct light Mildly toxic Once every two to three years Once every other week in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/terrarium http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BoristheTerrarium.png?v=1609955379 4716452937810 Sedum Morganianum | String of Donkey Tail (M) Diego Diego definitely has a slightly eccentric lifestyle. Just last week he launched his own line of soccer cleats and flew to Vegas in his private jet to celebrate, only two days before the start of the season. Some critics say Diego needs more discipline but somehow he's still scoring every single game! We'll never understand how he does it... he's just an alien on the pitch! Diego is Javier's big brother. The Sedum Morganianum 'Donkey Tail' has longer leaves and can grow bigger than his little brother, while still requiring the same easy care. Keep this rare find happy by making sure you give him enough bright, indirect sunlight. Also, leave him on the dry side when it comes to watering. Diego just needs a couple of sips every now and then.

He's a beauty king with a striking exterior and admired by many! For fun, Melvin loves to hang out by the beach answering declarations of love from all of his fans, under an umbrella of course. Shade is the new sun baby! The Dieffenbacchia is a house plant with special leaves almost as special as the name. There are many varieties of Dieffenbachia and all of them are equally striking. Fun fact: this plant was actually named after Mr Dieffenbach, the gardener of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, a.k.a. Sisi (not to be confused with a certain voice assistant we won't mention here to avoid instant copyright karma). Anyway, to keep things simple, we prefer to call this one Melvin. 10 20 Very frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Every two years Once every two weeks in Summer https://plantsome.ca/products/dieffenbachia-reflector-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dieffreflector4ingladys.png?v=1609955605 4553261252690 Monstera Adansonii (L) Monkey mask Abab If Abab was a person, he'd be an angry short seller who's always yelling profanities into his phone to whoever's on the other line (and just lost a million bucks because of him). We like plant Abab much better, with his glossy green leaves and distinctive fenestrations (a fancy word for holes). But if Abab got his way we’d ship him off to New York and put him in a corner office with a bunch of traders and brokers shouting “Sell, sell, sell!” and hurling insults that would make even some presidents blush. There’s now a rumour going around the Plantsome office that he once tried to sell cuttings of his bigger brother Alfredo. The fact that Eileen outed him is Abab’s deepest regret, that and not being planted before bitcoin was a thing. Abab is a swiss cheese plant with drooping, heart shaped leaves. They're beautiful trailing plants that grow quickly when taken care of properly. You'll find Adansonii's like Abab growing naturally in South and Central America and the West Indies, but Abab never fit in with his siblings. All they could ever agree on was that indirect light is best. For Abab living the fast life on Wall Street is where he really belongs. And you know what, we can't blame him. It's a jungle out there! 21 52 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-adansonii http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MonsteraAdansonii8inpot.png?v=1609956017 4510520574034 Philodendron Rojo Congo (XL) Fran Fran is an elite athlete. At this stage of the game she's done Kickboxing, Judo, Krav Maga and Kickboxing - and that's just Monday for her. Fran's fridge looks like what you'd get if you zipped the butcher's market: all protein, zero carbs. Getting fit is quite a cross to bear, and it takes guts. Philodendron Rojo Congo are beautiful big-leaf tropical plants that are easy to care for. Huge leaves + amazing red stalks + easy to care for = plant heaven we think! Keep your Philodendron away from direct sunlight and water about once every ten days for optimal Congo growth!

If that's too technical: Gus is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Gus and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Gus, such a low maintenance guy. Gus also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Gus does not need any plant food. Gosh Gus, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Laurentii is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Gus can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Gus is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Gus doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Gus hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Gus really popular. Gus purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juicccce (imitates snake sound). 25 90 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-laurentii-snake-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/black_coral_snake_with_dimple.png?v=1583800826 4753583636562 Philodendron Silver Sword (S) Phil Phil’s your typical nice guy. Doesn’t rock the boat. Even if he was caught in a canoe in the middle of a tsunami. He always lets people merge on the highway and carries around a personalised flask that reads “Phlask”. He’s in work at 8:59am - no later - and never turns down working over time because “it’s a team effort”. Phil has the same thing for lunch, a cheese and ham sandwich, an apple and water. He might put a little mayo in there if he’s feeling daring. Phil’s never been great at relationships, they always end up leaving him for more exciting guys. Somebody needs to tell Phil that a first date to a pigeon gallery isn’t exactly anybody's idea of thrilling. Can you just sit down with him please? This Philodendron is somewhat unique. With its leaves shaped like swords or knives. They grow best in medium light, though if this is not possible then lower light levels will suffice. All in all, a pretty easy plant to take care of, that is if you water it correctly (when soil is dry) and fertilize around once a month during the spring and summer growing season. Can you handle that? Of course you can! 10 32 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-silver-sword-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SilverPhilodendron4inpot.png?v=1609956214 4894575820882 Calathea Warscewiczii (S) Abby A real BFF to her cousin Sophia Jr., Abby decided to be a ballerina when she was young, and made good on that promise. For that reason you can notice her leaves perform a slow dance during the day and rise at night! So, if Abby looks a bit different every time you look at her, it's not your head playing with you. Addy here is actually a plant with fame! You see, she was awarded the  Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. It was a long time ago but she showed us the medal and we were honestly quite impressed. She doesn't like to talk about it, though. The acceptance speech and being in the spotlight was kinda nerve wrecking you know. She prefers to be alone chilling with a book, near a North or East facing window. She's just fine being left alone like that. But please - filtered light only and high humidity! Oh and no drafts please. So Temperamental Addy! 10 19 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-warsewiczii-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaWarscewiczii4inpot.png?v=1609955530 4828312895570 Olea | Olive Tree (S) Olivia Olivia is that one friend we all have that will be on her flip flops wearing shorts the moment it hits ten degrees celsius. We don't blame her for it. It's in her Mediterranean blood! She adorns the sun and would like nothing else than to work on her tan on a beach towel drinking mimosas and reading a Sophie Kinsella. What a life Olivia! Did you come here for the olives or the Olive Tree? You see, Olea Europaea or Olive Trees obviously grow olives, but getting there requires a real green thumb and can not be achieved inside the home year round. That doesn't mean this baby Olive Tree won't look super cute in your living room of course! If you do want to have a go at growing your own olives, place the olive tree in your garden, balcony or patio in spring and summer so it can get full sun. These trees also need a night time drop in temperature to spur on the blooming. Fertilize bi-weekly in spring and monthly in winter when you move the tree back inside. Are you keeping notes? It's a lot for a handful of olives but don't say we didn't warn ya! 10 18 Regular Low air purifier Direct sunlight Not toxic Every year Bi-weekly (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/olea-olive-tree-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OliveTreeOleaEuropaea4inpot.png?v=1609956064 4779756683346 Alocasia Lauterbachiana | Purple Sword (M) Adonis Adonis is a Filipino name meaning “extremely good looking” and “lord”. Adonis thinks Adonis embodies both these qualities perfectly. He sees himself sailing the Pacific with the wind in his leaves: King of the Ocean, Lord of the Seas. He’s a swashbuckling pirate at heart, rescuing damsels in distress and sword fighting bad guys. Anger him and he’ll challenge you to a midnight duel. (This is, sadly, why we’ve stopped hiring interns. Rest in peace, Steven.) Adonis, a.k.a. The Purple Sword, is an Alocasia plant with long, spear-like leaves. He hails from the tropics, so he likes warmth and indirect sun. Mist his leaves, keep his soil moist, and, if you have pets, be careful because he’s toxic to ingest. Adonis apologizes in advance for any trouble but he can’t help his dangerous ways. You can’t give a plant a body like his and expect him not to use it. 15 65 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic!

She is a classy, eye-grabbing gal that used to spend her days being a fashion stylist in New York—dressing all kinds of celebrities for some of Hollywood's biggest nights. These days, Sherry has become a fashion icon at the office, making some green amigos a little jealous (don’t ask Peggy about it!). The truth is, Sherry’s sophisticated burgundy looks make everyone go wild! The Peperomia Graveolens is a vibrant purple and red that has “windowed” leaves that sprout from a red stem. This means that the leaves are translucent under the reddy-purple, allowing the sunlight in and prompting photosynthesis to begin. One must always keep an eye out for over watering during the winter months as light levels begin to descend. Speaking of light, the Peperomia Graveolens necessitates a balance of light and shade.  Sherry is a lovely succulent that doesn't require much from you to thrive! Just make sure to place her somewhere she can get bright, indirect light and be (very!) careful with overwatering. 10 14 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-graveolens-s-ruby-glow http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PeperomiaGraveolens4inwithpot.png?v=1609956142 4738996207698 Microsorum musifolium 'Crocodyllus' | Crocodile Fern (M) Dundee Dundee is a proper Aussie. He might call you 'baggah' from time to time but it’s purely out of love. Speaking of love, he enjoys nothing more than a barbie (BBQ) on a sunny arvo (afternoon) with a cobber (good friend). One thing you never, ever, ever want to do is confuse him with being from New Zealand. “Don’t yer eva, call an aussie a Kiwi mate!" Sorry Dundee! The striking crocodile-style leaves on this plant are a real eye-grabber, but who came first, the croc or the fern? Dundee over here is epiphytic in nature which means that he grows wherever life goes. We've seen him in the strangest of places; like attached to trees, between rocks or cracks. When healthy, Crocodile Dundees will display the green leathery leaves they are known for, anything else such as brown or yellow means that something is wrong. Too much water or too much light is usually to blame. 15 30 Regular Great air purifier Indirect light Not toxic Once every year Once every six weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/microsorium-musifolium-crocydyllus-crocodile-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CrocodileFern6inpot.png?v=1609955581 4677011996754 Philodendron Cordatum Lemon Lime (M) Kate Sigh! Remember back in grade 5, you were sitting in the back of the class and there was that girl in the second row, the one with two giant braids, mischievous eyes and rosy cheeks? You would sit there and dream about her all day long thinking you were going to get married and have kids and a dog and a house in the burbs... Well that girl is Kate and today she runs an ink shop down on the Drive. She is married to Lori and was elected to the Parks Board last year. We love Kate because she defies convention and makes sh*t happen. Go Kate! What's not to love about a plant that has irresistible heart-shaped leaves? Kate is a vine so she can grow as a trailing/hanging plant or as a climbing plant depending on your tastes. Furthermore Kate is a jungle plant so she loves warm, humid environments and bright, filtered sun but no direct light - think of all of those jungle plants lliving under the shade of the giant jungle trees. If Kate's vines grow too long don't be afraid to trim them back, that will help her to fill out a little more. 15 22 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-cordatum-lemon-llime-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/lemonlimeheartleafcordatumwebpot.png?v=1609956194 4564072038482 Tradescantia Zebrina | Wandering Plant (M) Sylvie Like the bully who stole your lunch in school used to say, less is more! Sylvie is small but has a beautiful voluptuous canopy that makes her stunningly good at cleaning the air. She is lightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Sylvie is not a huge fan of the sun, so put her in a shaded area and give her some H20 every week or so!. "Try a small one for size" is Sylvie's motto. Even though she's tiny, Sylvie will give you immense delight with her beautiful leaves that shine in majestic colorful combinations. She left us hypnotised! If you're not affraid of some mystique in your home, Sylvie is your girl.

Yep you heard it, Eileen is instafamous. She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves always get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Eileen is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Eileen, or the Ficus Lyrata, is commonly referred to as a Fiddle Leaf Fig. Get it? Fiddle...Leaf...Fig. On Saturday nights you'll find her at underground deep house dance clubs but on Sunday she loves to put on the jazzy tunes. But don't shy away from pop songs either. Let her listen to your favourite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She loves those too!

If that's too technical: Zahra is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Zahra and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Zahra, such a low maintenance girl. Zahra also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Zahra does not need any plant food. Gosh Zahra, what's not to like here? Not so sure about this whole plant parent thing? Ease into it then by getting yourself a snake plant! Sansevieria plants are having a bit of a moment so you'd be a hip plant parent right out of the gate! The name Snake plant might sound daunting, but rest assured: Snakes are sssssssuper easy to maintain and we've made this green amigo promise  it  won't strangle you in your sleep. These low maintenance houseplants only need water about once a month and can be left in moderate to bright light. When you’re watering yours, check to see if the soil is dry a few inches deep before watering again. Overwatering can lead to soft, brown mushy leaves and snakes really don't appreciate mushy leaves.

It’s not that she doesn’t pay attention, it’s more that she doesn’t give things enough attention. Plants like Priscilla aren’t gorgeous in the conventional way, no that’s too boring, too common, they’re gorgeous in their own way. Priscilla never understands why people are always looking at her, she thinks it’s because she’s odd-looking but it’s completely the opposite. Alfredo is always shooting her weird looks and Gino can’t stop gazing at her. Priscilla is tall, thin and striking - heads always turn but Priscilla tries not to notice as she turns her head down. Dracaena Marginata Tricolor (Madagascar Dragon Tree) is an eye-catching evergreen shrub adorned with cream and crimson coloured leaves. During springtime, tiny white flowers begin to bloom that eventually give way to yellowy-orange berries. Though we should say Priscilla can be shy about blooming these berries if she’s grown indoors but that doesn't stop us from trying! Priscilla enjoys her morning sun and afternoon shade, she’s not a fan of direct light as it’s too much of a spotlight for her. Give this girl the right amount of love (and size pot) and this girl can grow up to an attention grabbing 15ft tall! Speaking of attention -- she doesn't like to talk about it, but Priscilla is listed as an air purifying powerhouse by none other than NASA!  10 30 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-tricolor-dragon-tree-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaMarginataTricolor4inpot.png?v=1609955670 4766720098386 Dracaena Marginata Tricolor | Dragon Tree (M) Priscilla Priscilla is aloof.

She’s all about the good vibes and good times. Super chill and care free, you could tell her World War 3 was kicking off and she’d still take her afternoon nap. Kelly’s the kind of (plant) friend you can tell anything to and she won’t judge you. Any problem you have, she will tell you that you’re overthinking it and just need to chill out.

Anton knows that if you want pretty leaves like his, you'll have to work for it but in his case, he's farmed out the work to you. Keep his soil slightly moist at all times and keep Anton away from direct sunlight. There's no such thing as plant sunblock and his leaves turn to crisp quickly! Begonias are one of the largest families of plants. With over 1600 members it's always difficult to get everyone available for that yearly family photo. Anton over here doesn't mind the date, he looks his Sunday's best any day of the week in his flashy green outfit with speckles of red, silver and purple. Begonia Jive likes to be kept in partial shade with no direct sunlight. If you're nice to Anton he might bloom occasionally but don't expect him to put on some big show. His flowers are rather small! 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/begonia-jive http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BegoniaJive4inpot2.png?v=1609955362 4629573009490 Strelitzia Nicolai | Bird of Paradise (XXL) Cranerys We hear ya: Strelitzie Reginae sounds like people dressed as scientists for toothpaste ads. If so, you might dig this plant’s name in regular parlance: Bird of Paradise, or Crane Flower. Now, that’s a damn good superhero name! The nicknames come from two pretty neat design features: the plant looks like a birds head when it’s blossoming, and the flowers resemble feathers on a crane’s head (the bird, not the machine). Aside from its noble roots (ha), the Strelitzia is actually pretty down to earth (somebody’s on a streak today!) and easy to please. She is not fussy about her watering needs, as long as you don't overdo it. Just like climate change, though, sunburn is a real thing: if you leave your Strelitzia exposed to direct sunlight, it will suffer more than that time you tried a DIY wax job during the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Instead, use indirect light, all year-round, and avoid temperatures below 10°C. Oh and a final, friendly advice: this plant is considered mildly toxic for cats, dogs and people. So, if your household has pets, children, adults on a plant-based diet or all of the above...you might want to get rid of them first! 27 120 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot near a window Slightly toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/strelitzia-reginae-bird-of-paradise-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BirdofParadiseXXLfranco.png?v=1609955368 4602373046354 Peace Lily | Spathiphyllum (XL) Lily Lilly has an exotic figure. When she works out she purifies the air for you so it's a win for Lilly and a win for you. Her air purifying qualities come mostly from the size of her leaves. She loves to produce oxygen with it but they also work to extract harmful substances from the air. In return for all this magic she does require some love and attention. You can have years of fun with Lilly just be sure to give her enough water and sunlight. Lilly's roots are in South America, but she will do just fine in any Canadian household. She is a beautiful Spathiphyllum, and more commonly referred to as the Peace Lily. We think it is because of her beautiful and peaceful white flowers. Or maybe it's cause she was the most well-behaved character in that series, Sex and The Lily.Our current batch of Peace Lily XL's do not yet flower but if you're kind to Lily she will surely reward you! 25 88 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every three years In summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peace-lily-spathiphyllum-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Peacelily3Gava.png?v=1609956109 4585438019666 Sansevieria Moonshine | Snake Plant (M) Luna Kaa is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Kaa is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering your Kaa and you'll have a happy plant! Kaa also doesn't mind being put in a shaded spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Kaa does not need any plant food. Gosh, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Moonshine is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Luna can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Luna is as chill as a cucumber. Snakes crawl, and Luna doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Luna hates planes. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Get it?! Anyway, this African plant is truly one of the easiest to maintain, which makes Luna really popular. us purifies your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets)... this snake has some poisonoussss juiccccce. 15 33 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-moonshine-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Snakemoonshine6inpot.png?v=1609956412 4581132632146 Ponytail Palm | Beaucarnea (L) Beau Ponytail palm's are actually not part of the palm family. It's why Beau has always felt a little out of place. When everyone looks right, Beau looks left if you know what I mean. The Beaucarnea Recurvata or Elephant's Foot is actually part of the succulent family. You see, Beau is blessed with the unique ability to store access water in his stem for later use. Nice! Beau is such a bohemian. Not one to easily commit, he'll only warm up to you if you put him in a bright spot with lots of sun. Beau used to wear his hair in a bun but apparently that's so 2019 its not even funny. Anyway, Beau is really easy going, usually minds his own business. Just let him shine in the sun and hang loose. Shaka brah! 21 55 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright and sunny Not toxic Once every year Once every month https://plantsome.ca/products/ponytail-palm-beaucarnea-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ponytail8INjimmy.png?v=1587574252 4566795288658 Calathea Freddie (M) Chuck Chuck is a popular guy and we can tell why. His leaves are adorable. On his home 'turf' (hehe) in South-America you'll find him creeping and crawling on the jungle floor. You see, Chuck here likes to get down and dirty in the shaded areas of the forest. He doesn't mind if bigger plant baddies grow all over him. Chuck loves the shade and will gladly take the protection others plants give. So if you're looking for a spot for chuck to shine, a shaded spot works best. Chuck is the sweet baby brother we all want to have. Isabella, Julia and Donna look after Chuck and they keep him out of trouble. Chuck has a rebellious streak but he has always been kind to his big sisters. To him, his sisters are the coolest kids on the block and he'd like nothing else but to stay close to them when you bring him home. Will you be nice and take one of his sisters home, too? 15 30 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-freddie-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Calathea3coco.png?v=1587574009 4393609855058 Dracaena Lemon Lime - (XL) Kenzo Kenzo used to be pure negativity, but he's trying to get over it. He took one of those hipster mindfulness/meditation/goatyoga courses and now he's trying to be all about the chill. After a fight with Kenzo Jr. we had to put him on some mandatory 20 minute meditation sessions to combat his anger management issues. Do you think Kenzo will work it out? Even though he and his brother Abel aren't that close due to some family issues, Kenzo thinks that's water under the bridge. Sure, he still ruminates about the past, but Kenzo realized the only thing he can influence is the present #mindfullness, which is why he's trying to become (don't laugh) a life coach. Gee, of all the paths Kenzo could choose to leave his mark... Please help Kenzo on his journey by giving him only a little bit of water and putting him in a bright spot. Oh and out of direct sunlight please, it messes with his vibe. 25 80 Little water needed Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-warneckei-lemon-lime http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaLemonLime3Gpot.png?v=1609955660 4924222373970 Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma | Mini Monstera Ginny (M) Nikki Just because Nikki is an easy plant to maintain, doesn’t mean she’s an easy plant to find. In order to “get down with the Nik-ness”, you must remind her how rare and special she is on the daily. She likes to think that she’s the last plant you think about at night and the first plant you think about in the morning. But, like, don’t get too obsessed because Nikki doesn’t like that. She’s cool and casual. Cool, casual, and ready to be showered in your unrelenting love. Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma. Raaa-fid-a-fooor...screw it. This plant is chill. She doesn’t have time for nine syllable Latin names and neither do we. Her name is Nikki (two syllables, thank you very much) and she’s always down to hang. Well, as long as the lighting is good and her soil is moist. Not too moist: remember to drain the soil. 15 48 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/rhaphidophora-tetrasperma-mini-monstera-ginny-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RaphiphodoraTetrasperma6inpot.png?v=1609956179 4832154124370 Pilea Moonvalley (S) Crystal Crystal is as woke as they come. To her everybody is a sheep and she’ll be the first person tell you how you’re being led astray. Crystal has her own blog where she carefully outlines how the very fabric of our society is fraying because of the rise of populist movements and the influence of social media on our mind body and spirit. She’s not totally wrong but there is a point where somebody is so woke that they are hallucinating. Crystal had a run in with the law after she ‘planted’ herself outside a popular waffle shop with protest signs because she firmly believed it was a secret drop site for spies of the deep state. It’s crazy but we don’t know what to believe anymore! The Moon Valley Pilea A.K.A Pilea Involucrata is made up of green, quilted leaves with deep bronze veins (and a deep hatred for corporations). Crystal is a fan of moist soil, high humidity and warm temperatures - she’s not a fan of companies that keep your  data and sell it to other companies 'anonymized' (yeah right). Keep Crystal away from direct sunlight though, it will scorch those pretty leaves to a crisp and nobody wants to see a crystal turn to dust. 10 15 Regular Low air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 2 years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/pilea-moonvalley-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MoonvalleyPilea4inpot.png?v=1609956229 4783737339986 Chamaedorea Elegans | Parlour Palm (XL) Vicky Vicky's got attitude in spades. This girl will want you to give her the primo spot at the window sill and won't settle for anything less. She relegates cacti and succulents to kitchens and side tables and is not impressed by the big monstera in the corner. This parlour palm is here to stay and she wants all your other green amigos to know it, too! Her huge green leaves tower over most other green amigos which makes for a pretty stunning centre piece in your living room. Don't match Vicky to your couch, match your couch to Vicky! That's how she likes it. Vicky's native lands are Mexico and Guatemala but don't worry, she's very comfortable in Canadian households. In fact, the Parlour Palm as Vicky's called in regular parlance, has been a popular choice in homes all over the world since the Victorian age! How Vicky has been able to maintain her popularity for so long remains a mystery but we think it has something to do with that fantastic foliage. You grow girl! 25 100 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 3 years Once a month during spring & summer https://plantsome.ca/products/chamaedorea-elegans-parlour-palm-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ParlourPalm10inpot_fe895f1b-0328-4348-a235-c660b739fc8a.png?v=1609956100 4727714381906 Delosperma Echinatum | Pickle Plant (S) Pico Question: what do you call a cucumber that grows in the rainforest? A tro-pickle HA! If, like us, this joke had you in stitches then congratulations: you have the humour of a six year old. But so what, ain't nothing wrong with that! Because let's face it, 2020 would be a whole lot better if you could play with Legos all day. Say it ain't so! Delosperma Echinatum are cute succulent plants that have small gherkin like leaves that resemble that of a pickle. It's a pretty unique look for a succulent. Originally from Africa, it can cope with a variety of light conditions but prefers a bright, sunny spot. Only water when the top soil has completely dried out. With so many pickle-looking leaves, you're getting a pretty sweet dill if you're asking us! 10 15 Minimal Excellent air purifier Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Once every two years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/delosperma-echinatum-pickle-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pickleplant4inpot.png?v=1609956222 4668319760466 Iron Cross Begonia (M) Davy Avast ye, hearties (which means, listen up)! Davy over here used to sail the seven seas in search of treasure and his lifelong adversary Jack. Here at Plantsome legend has it that Davy actually found a huge treasure chest which he's hidden on a deserted Island near the Bermuda Triangle. Supposedly directions to it are painted on Davy's leaves. We did see Alfredo and Mojo who are sitting one shelf over peering his way constantly. Do you think they are up to something? The Iron Cross Begonia is a beautiful painted leaf begonia grown mostly for its amazing foliage. The heavily textured leaves are surely a sight to behold. These beauties require little sun and prefer a spot somewhere in the shade. Be careful with pets and kids for the leaves of these Begonia's can cause a serious tummy ache! 15 28 Moderate Low air purifier Shade or partial shade Toxic Once every two years Once every three weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/iron-cross-begonia-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ironcrossbegoniaisaac.png?v=1609955360 4612610097234 Sansevieria Fernwood Mikado (M) Jude Jude is a bit of a board game geek. As he grew taller and taller he graduated from Snakes and Ladders to Gloomhaven and Pandemic. Though he hasn't touched that last one in a little while. Go figure! Sansevieria Ferwnood Mikado are native to Nigeria and the Congo region to be exact. These beautiful and playful spires are easy to care for. Bright or a bit darker spots of your home are equally fine for Jude.Be careful when watering this guy. The most common issue is too much TLC! Overwatering leads to root rot and Jude's eventual demise. Oh and don't buy this guy a new home every year. Repot only when his roots break his current pot.

Two shots of espresso, extra hot, with a dash of foamed milk (non skim of course). When we told Gino about Susie's affection for the Java his eyes lit up! He hasn't stopped asking us if we can move him to a shelf closer to Susie. Should we do it? Calathea's are beautiful plants that come in all shapes and sizes.  Sometimes even we are surprised! This Calathea Misto wasn't known to us until she knocked on our door but boy are we happy to welcome Susie to the party. Susie isn't as colourful as some of her sisters but she makes up for it with beautiful big leaves that never seem to stop growing.

She can close her leaves at night. Officially Julia is a Calathea Rufibarba but she sleeps like a rose. The size of her leaves also really make her a standout plant and she's good at purifying the air. Oh the diversity! If you love Julia but are looking for something a bit smaller, consider her smaller sister Sophia. Julia is one of our special Calathea sisters in the Plantsome family. A beautiful girl (ahum, lady) with breathtaking leaves that will close at night. Her big jagged and brightly painted leaves are stunning. Her leaves grow upright in a stunning spectrum of colours. Oh Julia... you deserve to be loved. 15 34 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-rufibarba-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Calathea5forwebvicrtoria.png?v=1587574026 4543354634322 Ponytail Palm | Beaucarnea (XL) Beau Ponytail palm's are actually not part of the palm family. It's why Beau has always felt a little out of place. When everyone looks right, Beau looks left if you know what I mean. The Beaucarnea Recurvata or Elephant's Foot is actually part of the succulent family. You see, Beau is blessed with the unique ability to store access water in his stem for later use. Nice! Beau is such a bohemian. Not one to easily commit, he'll only warm up to you if you put him in a bright spot with lots of sun. Beau used to wear his hair in a bun but apparently that's so 2019 its not even funny. Anyway, Beau is really easy going, usually minds his own business. Just let him shine in the sun and hang loose. Shaka brah! 25 75 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright and sunny Not toxic Once every year Once every month https://plantsome.ca/products/ponytail-palm-beaucarnea http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ponytailpalmwebinneptune.png?v=1587574255 4431520006226 Ficus Lyrata Bambino (XL) | Fiddle Leaf Fig Eileen Eileen has like a million followers on instagram. Yep you heard it, Eileen is instafamous. She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves always get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Eileen is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Evelyn is Eileen's sister. And boy do these Fiddle Leaf Figs like to party. Evelyn is all about that Jazz but she doesn't shy away from pop or rock songs either. Let her listen to your favourite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She'll love it! Go Evelyn! 25 125 Regular Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic to pets Every 1-2 years Every time you water (except in winter) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-lyrata-bambino-fiddle-fig http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Fiddle_with_round_pot.png?v=1583799715 4820330512466 Aspidistra | Cast Iron Plant (XL) Tucker Meet our new easy going green amigo: Tucker! A plant of little needs, Tucker mostly keeps to himself, although he is known for getting emotional during the National Anthem, he even knows the words off by heart. He told us he has a full scale version of the flag that he keeps tucked away between his leaves and only brings out for National Holidays. He keeps it perfectly folded thanks to a flag-folding tutorial that he found online. Tucker believes in freedom of speech...but only if you’re saying things that he’s okay with hearing. Okay so you wanted something big, something beautiful, without the hassle of having to care for it all the time. Meet Tucker! This Cast Iron Plant, or Aspidistra if that's your thing is an impressively tough plant that is super hard to kill - if you enjoy killing plants, don't buy a Cast Iron Plant. Tucker has been neglected all his life and knows all about self-care and self preservation. Go ahead and take a long vacation, Tucker doesn’t like vacations anyway, why vacation away from the greatest place in the world (aka your home)?! Tucker’s not fussed about how much light you give him, just don’t leave him in the glaring sun all day. 25 85 Low to Moderate Strong air purifier Anything but direct sunlight Non-toxic Every 3-4 years Every 2-3 months https://plantsome.ca/products/aspidistra-cast-iron-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CastIronPlant10inpot.png?v=1609955542 4790412476498 Dracaena Janet Craig (M) Mojo What the heck does Mojo even mean? Mojo is an African word that describes inner power. Your swag, your shine, your sparkle, you know? What's Mojo's inner power, you ask? Mojo has turned air purifying into an art. He sneaks up on bad substances like a ninja and renders them harmless! Benzenes better hide when Mojo's around because he'll attack them straight on. Mojo is lightly poisonous, so repeat after me: with pets a go-go, Mojo is a no-no from the get-go. In Africa, this Dracaena has to survive in a pretty tough environment. Thus, it's no surprise that Mojo can easily flourish with little light. He also likes to brag that he can reach heights of up to 15 feet where he comes from. Worry not, Mojo won't go supersize on you in his pot. However, if you repot him frequently there is almost no stopping him. This one will never lose its Mojo. 15 45 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaJanetCraig6inpot.png?v=1609955649 4668394504274 Begonia Escargot (S) Rex When Rex suddenly hatched from an egg in the middle of the Botswana Jungle he was picked up and raised by a tribe of Vervet Monkeys. He eventually became the right hand to the vervet monkey tribe leader and lived with him in tall trees until one day he fell down and his little hands couldn't grab onto a trunk in time. There's a big gap in his past but he eventually became a movie star and played a small toy Dinosaur in a famous movie! Begonias are one of the largest families of plants. With over 1600 members it's always difficult to get everyone available for that yearly family photo. And they are quite camera shy, too! Most Begonia like to be kept in partial shade with some light but no sunlight. Theres no working on that Tan for Begonia Rex over here. The veiny textures and striking colour pallette on this Rex Bonia are truly the stuff of many plant parent's dreams. But be careful with pets and kids, nibbling on the leaves of these Begonias can cause a serious tummy ache! 10 18 Moderate Low air purifier Shade or partial shade Toxic Once every two years Once every three weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/begonia-fedor-rex-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RexCultorumBegonias4inpot.png?v=1609955357 4609568145490 Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (L) Wilson Wilson not only provides a natural atmosphere, but also a healthy working and living environment. So much so that NASA has included this fella in the top 10 most air-purifying plants in the world. The Ficus is even in it twice, because not only it is an air-purifying plant, but it also converts CO2 into oxygen, which ensures better air quality. That's pure will, son! The more the better is Wilson's Mantra. He prances the Plantsome office filled with pride about how he has more leaves than any other plant! We haven't done an official count and especially the palm family feels differently about it, but we have to admit he does have lots of them! Just like all other Ficus plants, Wilson is a real air purifying pro. A little sunshine and some water will bring you and Wilson happiness for years to come! 21 50 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-benjamina-weeping-fig-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Weepingfig8invic.png?v=1609956518 4421726863442 Aglaonema Silver Bay (L) Josh Meet Jeff's younger brother, Josh, aka the bon VIPlant in the family. Like his brother, he too values hard work - as long as it's not his hard work. In that sense, he's not the same as Jeff, but it's understandable: money doesn't spend itself, especially when you have lots of it. Leave it to Josh to go all Kardashian on the family fortune. If you look up "chillax" (yes, that's a word) in the dictionary, you'll see pictures of Josh just hanging out. His philosophy is that the only thing better than earning your place in the sun is waiting for someone else find his, and then taking that spot. No wonder some people consider him a little shady sometimes. In his defense, though, he's always in good spirits, and you can almost feel the air getting lighter when he's in the room. It's probably because he is a good conversationalist (are we using big words, eh? Oh my Josh!) 21 50 Moderate Strong air purifying Partial shade Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/aglaonema-silver-bay http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Aglaonema_8_inch_compressed_in_tiffany.png?v=1583869420 4859528216658 Norfolk Island Pine (XL) Arthur Arthur’s a happy-go-lucky kind of pine. Talking about politics? He’s asleep. Complaining about your commute? He’s comatose. Droning on about the weather as if you didn’t know that winter happens every year? His funeral is at four. All Arthur wants is clean water, good lighting, and happy faces. So relax and have a good time, because every season is the season to be jolly when Arthur’s around. Arthur may look good in your Christmas photo but he hails from the tropics. Think bright light and high humidity. Keep his soil evenly moist but don’t drown him. Keep him cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Swap his red nose and sparkly ornaments for a pair of shades and a floral t-shirt to emphasize his easy, breezy attitude. He loves it! 25 95 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 3-4 years Biweekly during growing season https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine10inpot.png?v=1609956060 4812164431954 Calathea Rufibarba (S) Julia Julia has one of the most special abilities in the plant kingdom, we think. She can close her leaves at night. Officially Julia is a Calathea Rufibarba but she sleeps like a rose. The size of her leaves also really make her a standout plant and she's good at purifying the air. Oh the diversity! If you love Julia but are looking for something a bit smaller, consider her smaller sister Sophia. Julia is one of our special Calathea sisters in the Plantsome family. A beautiful girl (ahum, lady) with breathtaking leaves that will close at night. Her big jagged and brightly painted leaves are stunning. Her leaves grow upright in a stunning spectrum of colours. Oh Julia... you deserve to be loved. 10 21 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-rufibarba-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaRufiebarba4inpot.png?v=1609955523 4772000890962 Hoya Retusa | Grass Leafed Hoya (S) Octavia Octavia is seriously weird. She was that quiet kid plant at the back of the classroom who would sketch twisted drawings into the textbooks. She never spoke to anybody and kept to herself, her only friend was a black beetle that she kept in a jar. She’d feed it insects that she’d stamp with her feet and then scrape off and slather into the jar. Octavia would sometimes blurt out strange, cryptic things that’d make people shiver. Once she told a kid that his parents would die one day and he had to be sent home because he couldn’t stop crying. The Hoya Retusa is a native of India and looks a little like when somebody gets out of bed and has bed hair. The plant has a sprawl of long, thin veins that come out in all directions and randomly has tiny white flowers with red coronas. Octavia is a peculiar plant to say the least, she’s pretty low maintenance and likes to keep to herself. Medium-to-frequent watering will suffice here and bright, indirect sunlight will keep Octavia happy. Octavia can be toxic to everything and everyone around her. She contains hoya milky latex and is extremely reactive to the skin, resulting in severe allergic reactions. 10 15 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-retusa-grass-leafed-hoya-rope-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HoyaRetusa4inpot.png?v=1609955901 4733629857874 Polyscias Fabian | Aralia stump (L) Fabian Jungle vibe alert! Polyscias plants love the shade and will be a little more demanding to care for but oh my oh my, what a beaut! Fabian is a champ at turning carbon monoxide into oxygen, filling your room with fresh O2 like its no biggie. Fun fact: Fabian over here is a member of the Polyscias family which means 'lots of shade' in Greek because this plant can go supersize in the jungle, providing lots of shade! The exotic looking Polyscias Fabian is found on the Polynesian Islands. All that traveling has made him a bit demanding. Put him in a bright spot but no direct sunlight please. It messes with his vibe. Back home some refer to him as either an Aralia or Polyscias, but to us he'll always be Fabian. Just look at him, what a stunner! 21 100 Average Light air purifier Shaded Poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/aralia-fabian-stump http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PolysciasFabian8inpot.png?v=1609955278 4651716149330 Calathea Misto (S) Susie Susie drinks her coffee like a connoisseur! Two shots of espresso, extra hot, with a dash of foamed milk (non skim of course). When we told Gino about Susie's affection for the Java his eyes lit up! He hasn't stopped asking us if we can move him to a shelf closer to Susie. Should we do it? Calathea's are beautiful plants that come in all shapes and sizes.  Sometimes even we are surprised! This Calathea Misto wasn't known to us until she knocked on our door but boy are we happy to welcome Susie to the party. Susie isn't as colourful as some of her sisters but she makes up for it with beautiful big leaves that never seem to stop growing. A calathea worth loving! 10 30 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-misto-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/mistotusca.png?v=1609955500 4584177074258 Philodendron Moonlight (XL) William William gets away with just about anything. His blonde locks can get him into trouble but his playful personality and royal pedigree get him right back out of it. Philodendrons are like house plant royalty, they are kind of the originals, dating back to Victorian times and this Moonlight is the lush, playful new generation. Word has it William has big plans for the future but he is waiting his turn to shine. But enough about that from us, you can read all about it on TMZ. When most people think, "tropical house plant" they usually imagine something like a Philodendron - beautiful large lush leaves with striking colours or patterns exploding from the pot. Its why Philos have been household favourites for eons! The big difference between William's cousins and William here is that he is not a vining plant. William has a fear of heights and is not big on climbing, but his Moonlight will turn any room into a jungle!  Give him a warm, humid environment (jungle style!) and hold the sunshine. Shade is where its at for William. If you treat William like the royal that he is, he can grow grow grow!  25 55 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-moonlight-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronMoonlight3Gfranco.png?v=1609956204 4582295175250 Sansevieria Cylindrica (M) Jake Of all the sports to choose to be the best at, javelin is probably not the top of many kids' lists. There is no Wayne Gretzky or Michael Jordan of javelin throwing to look up to or idolize, Its not an easy or safe sport to play in most back yards and parks and lets face it, throwing a pole around all day doesn't exactly look that fun. Well, none of that dissuaded Jake when he was a kid. Jake is a natural at javelin throwing - and its easy to see why. Those long cylindrical spears and their smooth aerodynamic shape helped make Jake a multiple Olympic gold medalist. He is a little bummed that the Tokyo Olympics are postponed but don't worry, he'll be back stronger, faster and pointier than ever! Make us proud Jake!! Sansevieria Cylindrica is also known as Dracaena Angolensis. We don't know why this species has two latin names but who cares, its common names Cylindrical Snake Plant and African Spear Plant make a lot more sense. This hip looking plant is a succulent native to Angola. It has recently risen to fame - and you can see why! Jake is a really easy plant to care for. Bright or darker spots of your home are equally fine for Jake and he does not require a lot of water or feeding. He only needs to be repotted every two to three years - he usually lets you know when its time to repot when his roots break his current pot. Who knew plants could be such good communicators? 15 50 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-cylindrica-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansCylindrica6incoco.png?v=1587574262 4571187937362 Fatsia Japonica | Paper Plant (M) Sara Sara is the introspective type. She doesn't like the spotlight, even though she's sure to attract a few admiring glances when people notice her. Must be the hair; every year, she changes it for a new look! One thing we can tell you about Sara is that she sticks to her roots; did you know her family name, Fatsia, actually comes from its similarity to the Japanese word eight? It is a reference to the number of leaves she produces! She's also very reliable. As long as you give her a good place in your house - in her case, that means away from the sun -, she will give you nice leaves and quality air. 15 22 Regular Good air purifier Full or partial shade Slightly toxic Every year Every other week in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/fatsia-japonica-paper-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Fatsiaarya.png?v=1587574120 4894587256914 Senecio Peregrinus | String of Dolphins (M) Flip A plant with dolphin-shaped leaves?! Yup! In our opinion, the Senecio Peregrinus is the coolest plant of the moment. If you look at Flip's leaves, you will immediately understand why everyone calls him the 'Dolphin Plant'. Flip is just a lot of fun to hang around with - makes you feel kinda like your in a wholesome Disney adventure - you know the kind where everything just works out in the end. Flip, flip, flip ... we're a super-freaking-flippin' fan of you! His dolphin leaves are of course the most special thing about this green amigo but how do you take care of a plant with leaves shaped like a dolphin? You might think that Flip the Dolphin Plant needs a lot of water, WRONG! Sorrry, we didn't mean to yell. This green amigo is a cross between the Pea Plant and the Senecio Articularis, and is therefore a succulent. Water just a little, because Flip doesn't want to drown! Like his namesake dolphin, Flip likes to be in a warm bright place but keep him out of direct sunlight! 15 27 https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-peregrinus-string-of-dolphins-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofDophins6inpot.png?v=1609956350 4808519614546 Calathea Roseopicta Silvia (S) Silvia Calatheas are having a bit of a moment. They're everywhere, one more stunning than the other. And just when you thought you'd seen them all, in walks Silvia with her striking canopy of purple leaves. We're smitten! Silvia is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Julia, Brooke, Sophia, Susie and Pink. If you're an avid Calathea collector, Silvia is a must have addition to the collection. Her big beautiful leaves are a bright purple that is not seen often in shaded plants. Put this fancy lady in a bright spot away from direct sunlight, and give her a regular misting of the leaves. Fortunately she's a great communicator and will furl up her leaves to tell you she's thirsty!  10 18 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-roseopicta-silvia-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaPrayerRed4inpot.png?v=1609955528 4779740233810 Ficus Tineke | Rubber Tree (XL) Heidi According to NASA, Heidi takes a top-10 spot when it comes to air purifying power. Which is just stellar. Heidi told us she was recruited to be part of the mission to the moon, but that sounds a lot like fairy tale to us. She showed us a picture - it looks photoshopped, so we won't show that here. We know: Heidi's gonna hate, but what can you do? Either way, air purifying is still a pretty cool superpower, and Heidi is the real deal. What are you waiting for? Don't get hasty, get Heidi! Heidi is a special Ficus. She looks so much bigger for her age! It must be those beautiful variegated leaves that she grows. Those colours really POP girl! Heidi is one of those plants that really loves to give back, providing you with amazing fresh living room air in return for a bit of H2-EAU. An exchange that we here like to call a love-Heidi relationship. 25 55 Average Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Mildly Toxic Every 3 years Once a month (spring & summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-tineke-rubber-tree-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusTinekeXLinpot.png?v=1609956575 4710416023634 Crassula | Cascading Jade Plant (M) Wendy So you think you can dance? Wait until you see Wendy. She first became famous in her native South Africa where she went viral with TikTok moves no one could copy. Wendy really puts the 'sun' in Sunday with her love of sunshine and light. She's low maintenance while still being the star of the show on your south-facing window sill. Such a bright gal! Wendy is real popular in South Africa where she grows in abundance. Wendy is a hardcore succulent, which means she has a badass superpower: she. is. TOUGH. Forgot to water her for a few weeks? Wendy shrugs it off like its no big deal. Accidentally put her in the fridge? No biggie. Left her at the tanning salon? She can handle it. Wendy is a roommate that will never ask you to turn the music down or warn you that you're eating too many carbs. Easy like a Sunday morning! 15 25 Little Light air purifying Direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once a year Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/crassula-cascading-jade-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CascadingJade6inpot.png?v=1609955940 4694782050386 Dracaena Deremensis | Lisa Cane (XXL) Kai His real name is Dracaena Deremensis or Dracaena Tree but he grew up in the rougher climates of Africa so we've named him Kai. This tough amigo weathered it all and has grown tall and strong. So if you are looking for a strong and stunning green amigo... get a Kai! Where weather conditions are rough, you'll find Kai. The Dracaena Deremensis Lisa does not need a lot of water and will get really happy if you put him in a spot that is mostly shaded with some indirect sunlight. Kai is a master in production of oxygen and a king in eliminating harmful substances like Benzenes. Say hello to fresh air! 25 130 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-deremensis-lisa-cane-xxl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaLisaCane3Gpot.png?v=1609955635 4582214500434 Tradescantia Zebrina | Wandering Plant (L) Sylvie your lunch in school used to say, less is more! Sylvie is small but has a beautiful voluptuous canopy that makes her stunningly good at cleaning the air. She is lightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Sylvie is not big on sunshine, so put her in a shaded area and give her some H20 every week or so!. Sylvie will give you immense delight with her beautiful leaves that shine in majestic colourful combinations. She's also known as the wandering jew or purple heart and she can be found hanging out or in a planted pot. This particular version of our Sylvie hangs lavishly in her hanging basket. Doesn't she look chill? 21 50 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-zebrina-wandering-jew-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Wanderingjew8UBweb.png?v=1587574314 4543346540626 Strelitzia Nicolai | Bird of Paradise (L) Cranerys We hear ya: Strelitzie Reginae sounds like people dressed as scientists for toothpaste ads. If so, you might dig this plant’s name in regular parlance: Bird of Paradise, or Crane Flower. Now, that’s a damn good superhero name! The nicknames come from two pretty neat design features: the plant looks like a birds head when it’s blossoming, and the flowers resemble feathers on a crane’s head (the bird, not the machine). Aside from its noble roots (ha), the Strelitzia is actually pretty down to earth (somebody’s on a streak today!) and easy to please. She is not fussy about her watering needs, as long as you don't overdo it. Just like climate change, though, sunburn is a real thing: if you leave your Strelitzia exposed to direct sunlight, it will suffer more than that time you tried a DIY wax job during the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Instead, use indirect light, all year-round, and avoid temperatures below 10°C. Oh and a final, friendly advice: this plant is considered mildly toxic for cats, dogs and people. So, if your household has pets, children, adults on a plant-based diet or all of the above...you might want to get rid of them first! 25 55 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot near a window Slightly toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/strelitzia-reginae-bird-of-paradise-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Bird6ininjimmy.png?v=1587574296 4856835571794 Alocasia Zebrina | Elephant's Ear (S) Aku Aku Aku Aku came to us fleeing from his home country of Borneo. Fleeing you ask? Yes because Aku Aku actually gets cooked and eaten in Borneo, which is a pretty legit reason to leave your home. Aku Aku will settle in just fine here, as long as you give him enough water and place him away from direct sunlight. Aku Aku is a special dude. You'll see that when you look at his leaves and stems. You'd almost say he's a cross between a zebra and an elephant. His official name is Alocasia Zebrina but some refer to him as Elephant's Ear. Aku Aku is unique in the way that the attention is always on him. In the Jungle this plant is often used as an umbrella. You'll find animals and even people huddling up together to take refuge from torrential jungle rain. Should you get a leak in the house you know what to do! Aku Aku to the rescue! 10 34 Frequently, weekly Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Occasionally in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-zebrina-elephants-ear-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AlocasiaZebrinaElephantEar4inpot.png?v=1609955258 4848532750418 Homalomena Selby (M) Tim His real name is Timothy but he calls himself ‘Big Tim’ - why? Because he thinks he can make it as a rapper. No one has the heart to tell Timothy that nobody should ever rhyme ‘boss’ with ‘candy floss’. Timothy grew up listening to rap as a means of rebelling, but after he saw some people his age becoming famous he wanted to throw some raps together. He really shouldn’t - he’s horrendous. Timothy thought he could fake his way into the industry so he created a secondary e-mail address and pretends to be his own manager. He currently has zero bookings. The Homalomena Selby is a tropical plant that loves humidity, it’s pretty recognizable with green foliage that has a pattern of dark green spots and specks. The leaves look very similar to those of the Chinese Evergreen Aglaonema but grow outward in a long spiral that seem almost like a tango dance with its roots. So pretty! 15 38 Moderate Strong air purifying Partial shade Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/homalomena-selby-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HomalomenaSelby6inpot.png?v=1609955879 4828307128402 Neanthebella | Parlour Palm (L) Vicky When all of your brothers and sisters are big and burly, you have to do something to stand out. Vicky's got attitude in spades. This girl will want you to give her the primo spot at the window sill and won't settle for anything less. She relegates cacti and succulents to kitchens and side tables and is not impressed by the big monstera in the corner. This parlour palm is here to stay and she wants all your other green amigos to know it, too! Vicky literally fits in the palm of your hand and isn't she a cutie! Vicky's native lands are Mexico and Guatemala but don't worry, she's very comfortable in Canadian households. In fact, the Parlour Palm as Vicky's called in regular parlance, has been a popular choice in homes all over the world since the Victorian age! How Vicky has been able to maintain her popularity for so long remains a mystery but we think it has something to do with that fantastic foliage. You grow girl! 21 55 Regular Strong air purifier Bright indirect light Pet friendly Once every year Once every two weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/neanthebella-parlour-palm-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NeantheBellaPalm8inpot.png?v=1609956107 4733620191314 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (XL) Carl This beautiful and special fern is originally from New Zealand and South-East Asia but his name is Greek. 'Nephros' is Greek for Kidney and 'Lepsis' translates to 'scale'. The Greek refer to the scale of this plant that have a 'kidney like' shape to them. It takes a bit of fantasy, we agree but it makes for a good story. Carl is a thirsty dude so be sure to water him plenty of time. Carl is not poisonous and doesn't need any plant food. The Plantsome app will help with his watering needs. Easy! Carl is the ultimate green houseplant. He has a full head of bright green leaves and he's still easy to maintain. Easy to take care of and great at purifying the air, too. Another mouthful, his real name is Nephrolepsis but he's often called the Boston Fern. Some say he studied at Harvard and got a degree in frond management. 25 55 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright but no direct sunlight Non-toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/nephrolepis-exaltata-boston-fern-xl-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BostonFernXLBspecpot.png?v=1609955384 4721289330770 Opuntia Roller Coaster (S) Leesa Leesa's a crowd's favorite among cacti collectors. It's easy to see why. She's adorably good looking and such a low maintenance gal. Come on, would you just look at those cute little pads. Oh my gosh we're in love! Talk about a cool name! The Opuntia family is so full of fun pricks its hard to keep up. Just look at this Roller Coaster with its furry spine! Leesa loves the riding shotgun in your convertible with the glaring sun beaming down on her. But if you don't have a convertible (or scorching sunshine) a south-facing windowsill will have to do. 10 19 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-mona-lisa-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpuntiaHybridCrestRollerCoaster4inpot_b0afb9a4-9412-44f2-be08-49b5f4ea1be8.png?v=1609956076 4714266591314 Trichocereus Pachanoi | San Pedro Cactus (L) Dick Although he can be a real prick sometimes, Dick means well. He doesn't want to hear about your latest episode binge of whatever it is you're into right now. He'd rather talk about the weather with you because that's where his passion lies. Particularly sunshine. He's the kind of dude that would throw his bathing towel on the best lounge chair, poolside at 8AM just to be sure he can catch every ray of sun. It's a bit of a Dick move, we agree, but hey...what's in a name right? San Pedro Cacti are fast growing cacti that are commonly found in the Andes region. He's officially called a Trichocereus Pachanoi but who's keeping score. To us he'll always be Dick. There's really not much that you need to know about Dick, other than the fact that he's super low maintenance as long as you can give him some much needed sunshine (as much as possible). It is best to water Dick through the bottom of his pot. Fill a sink with about 2-3 inches of water and let him soak up that water about once every two to three weeks in spring and summer months. Dick takes a really long nap between October and April when he doesn't like to drink at all! Too much water and your Dick will start drooping and nobody wants that to happen! 21 45 Very little Low air purifier Lots of direct light Slightly toxic Once every two years Low nitrogen fertilizer https://plantsome.ca/products/trichocereus-pachanoi-san-pedro-cactus-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SanPedroCactus2Gpotcopy.png?v=1609956324 4668462694482 Calathea Lancifolia (L) Indy Reading about Indy is like double-checking the passenger list for Noah's Ark: his common nicknames are Rattlesnake Plant, Peacock Plant, and Zebra Plant. What they're all taking about are Indy's leaf markings, which, you guessed it, make him super distinctive. Cute and badass at the same time! An enviable combo. Chuck and Sophia's older brother, Indy left the house early to become an archaeologist. He scoured the riverbanks along the Amazon river in search for long lost settlements with hidden treasures. He's told us many harrowing stories! Apparently, the patterns on his beautiful foliage can be read as scripture that holds the key to a sacred temple filled with gold and diamonds! We just can't crack the code.

She loves to convert carbon monoxide into oxygen for you but does demand some love and attention in return. Polyscias is greek for 'gimme some shade girl!'. You heard it, sunny spots are out-of-the-question for Moana. The Aralia can grow super tall, up to tree height so if you take good care of it you'll have a beautiful centrepiece for your home. We are sad to see her go, she's really one of a kind. *handkisses* This tropical princess is called Moana and she's from the Polynesian Islands but now that she's planted her roots in your house, she'll want you to know that she's a demanding girl. Put Moana in a bright spot, but not too bright (no sunlight). In Polynesia this plant is also referred to as the Aralia Ming but we prefer Moana. Just has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? 21 55 Average Light air purifier Shaded Poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/ming-aralia-polyscias-fruticosa-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Aralia8inwebpot.png?v=1609956001 4623556247634 Dieffenbachia Perfection (M) Jeff If you think all plants look alike, look again: Jeff (Dieffenbachia Perfection) has leaves so unique you can't even find them in other plants of the same species! Talk about a super limited edition! Coming from the real Amazon, Jeff delivers prime air the same day you order him, and is sure to kindle your fire for botany. Jeff should be on the cover of Forbes every year. His are leaves totally different from the competition and he can clear the air around any office. Did we mention he also hates shady environments and never complains about work? Jeff loves moist environments, which makes him a great conversation partner at the watercooler. Just be forewarned: although he minds its business and does not gossip, Jeff's still a poisonous plant. And why wouldn't he be!? It's a jungle out there! 15 35 Very frequent Strong air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Every two years Once every two weeks in Summer https://plantsome.ca/products/copy-of-dieffenbachia-perfection-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dieffperfection6incoco.png?v=1609955601 4614969786450 Dracaena Giganta - (XL) Kuri So we were in the office the other day doing what everyone does when its a little slow - binging on our favourite Anime and Manga shows on Crunchyroll. Thats where we met Kuri. Kuri is the prince of the disgraced fire god Booyah, the older brother of Dinshogon, the father of Tik and Tok and husband of Vuvuzwela - he's also probably the most impressive Dracaena you will set your eyes on! One look at those spiky tufts of lime green hair and big sturdy body and you will see why he is one of the most popular of the Dracaena cultivars. Kuri is super easy to have around - just don't leave him close to a computer, he's likely to blow your data cap by downloading old episodes of Dragon Ball and Golgo 13. The leaves of Dracaena Giganta can grow to be up to a metre long and their intense colouration means that these plants have some serious swagger! Oh, and super easy to care for, too. Place them in a spot away from direct sunlight and they'll do just fine. Give this Giganta just a bit of water at a time and don't curse yourself when you forget about Kuri for a little while. He's very forgiving! 25 100 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-giganta-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dracgiganta3gfranco.png?v=1609955641 4589532610642 Schefflera Arboricola (XL) Seth Shaka! That most respected hand greeting from the little patch of paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean called Hawaii. Seth comes from there - he was actually born in Australia but ended up in Hawaii (a story for another day) - and you only need to look at his hand-shaped leaves to know that this Dude's giving shakas, high fives and good vibes all day long. His sun-kissed blond highlights and good going nature mean that Surfer Seth is going to be happy wherever he ends up - and safe to say you will be too. Seth is a sun worshipper, except like every surfer that doesn't apply the Zinc, Seth can end up a little burned in the mid day sun. Ideally keep Seth in morning and evening direct light or just out of the direct sun in a nice bright spot in your room. Seth is pretty chill about watering frequency but keep his roots out of the water - he doesn't like wet feet! We know, its kinda strange for surfer to be like that, but whatev brah, to each his own! 25 80 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright (in)direct light Toxic to pets Every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/schefflera-arboricola-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ScheffleraArboricolaTrinetteavav.png?v=1609956336 4869452824658 Dracaena Deremensis Art Carmen (M) Tito His real name is Dracaena Art Carmen or Dracaena Tree but he grew up in the rougher climates of Africa. Tito's weathered it all and has grown tall and strong. So if you are looking for a strong and stunning green amigo... get a Tito! Where weather conditions are rough, you'll find Tito. The Dracaena Art Carmen does not need a lot of water and will get really happy if you put him in a spot that is mostly shaded with some indirect sunlight. Tito is a master in production of oxygen and a king in eliminating harmful substances like Benzenes. Say hello to fresh air! 15 37 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-deremensis-art-carmen-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaCarmen6inpot.png?v=1609955631 4792370987090 Stromanthe Magic Star (L) Criss : Criss is a magician! Not only can he turn sunshine into oxygen—which doesn’t make for good television—he can also do cool things, like ride motorcycles into the Grand Canyon and levitate between tall buildings. Criss is a one of a kind, generation defining plant. He was even named Magicstar of the Century by the International Magicstar Society (who were not available for comment at the time of this write up). The only people who won’t like Criss are people whose girlfriends he might impress with his sick magic tricks. Bippity, boppity, keep track of your boo. Stromanthe Magicstar may sound like the stage name of your favourite X-rated movie (you dirty dog you!), but it’s actually a plant! If you're wondering how they come up with it don't worry, so are we. Backstage though, you can call this one Criss. His leaves are covered in a spray of white flecks, like someone splattered him with paint (or something) and his bright purple undersides reveal his adventurous side! Stromanthe plants like a slightly moist soil at all times and indirect sunlight, oh and making people uncomfortable. You still feeling good about all this? 21 36 Regular water needed Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic to humans and pets Once every two years Once a month during spring, summer, and fall https://plantsome.ca/products/stromanthe-magic-star-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StromantheMagicStar8inpot.png?v=1609956448 4766684807250 Psychotria Nervosa | Wild Coffee Plant (XL) Enrico Enrico is a species of wild coffee plant, so named for his small, red seeds. You can try to brew those seeds into coffee but it will taste bland and might give you a headache. His seeds are better suited for wildlife, mostly birds but butterflies eat them too! Don’t spread that around though, or you’ll totally ruin Enrico’s image. Call him “little psycho” instead, because he can turn on you in a second, and then you’ll be like, “Woah, Enrico, is that you?” And then he’ll be like, “I’m not Enrico. I’m your worst nightmare.” And then you’ll just put him outside or something, because Enrico’s only a plant and you’ve got opposable thumbs and can bend your knees. Enrico doesn’t have emotions. He listens to heavy metal and shops at Hot Topic. Want to do something crazy? He’s standing a safe distance behind you screaming, “Do it or you’re scared!” Um, you want Enrico to do it too? You know what, Enrico forgot to tell you, but he has this thing. You know, the thing? With those people, at that place? Well, anyway...catch ya later. 25 70 Regular Low air purifier Partial or full shade Not toxic Once every two years Once ever two months https://plantsome.ca/products/psychotria-nervosa-wild-coffee-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/WildCoffeePlant10inpot.png?v=1609956524 4740731240530 Nemanthus Hypocyrta (L) Eloa For Eloa, Carnival happens almost every day! This Brazilian beauty knows how to brag and honestly, who wouldn't? Those bright orange flowers and Samba moves make everyone go crazy. But hey, easy tiger! Eloa also plays hard to get and likes to hang out near the clouds. After all, she is a true rainforest goddess and should be treated like one! The Nemanthus is famous for its charming looks. In the summer, Eloa puts her Carnival costume on and produces goldfish-like flowers, making her the centre of the universe. This tropical cascading plant loves water and plenty of indirect sunlight. Treat her well and she might even reward you with flowers year-around. Her ideal date? A picnic on the beach, under the shade of a palapa, drinks and some Bossa nova playing in the background ;) 21 38 Average Low air purifier Indirect light Safe for pets!

Does kind of his own thing and needs very little attention from you. He grows slowly (but steadily!) and doesn't mind the fact that you totally forgot to water it for two weeks. Lucky is slightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Lucky for you: he handles himself well in most environments sunshine or shade, nothing rains on his parade! This special variation of the Zamioculcas or ZZ plant is called the Zenzi or Dwarf ZZ. They are a bit harder to find and since we found some we're calling this guy Lucky! Lucky here is Luke's little baby brother and he is just as easy going as his bigger sibling. The biggest difference is the size of the leaves and the compactness of them growing all bunched up together. It's actually just a cute Luke if you think about it! Luke-ing cute Lucky! 15 36 Regular Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-zenzi-m-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ZZzenzi6inpot.png?v=1609956547 4641538080850 Dracaena Tarzan (XXL) Tarzan Yep, the rumours are true. There is a new King in town, and he's none other than Dracranea Tarzan! Word on the street is that he first came here to confront his fear of bears but decided to stay after falling in love with Beautiful BC. And we can’t blame him for it! So "don't you cry" Canada because Tarzan will be here "from this day on, now and forever more" ;) AaaaaAAAAaaaaAAAaaahhh! The Dracaena Tarzan is undoubtedly an eye-grabbing fella. This King of the Jungle is easy to care for, so it deserves a prime spot in your home (like in your living room!). He likes bright, indirect sunlight but can also grow well (yet, slowly) in low light conditions. To be safe, just make sure you don't let him work on his tan in direct sunlight as this could cause his leaves to burn. Also, it's very important that you allow Tarzan's soil to dry well before watering. Not doing so could cause brown leaves and root diseases. 30 120 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-tarzan-xxl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dractarzan3Gpot.png?v=1609955683 4623538683986 Ficus Lyr. Bambino Bush (XL) | Fiddle Leaf Fig Evelyn Evelyn has like a million followers on instagram. Yep you heard it, Evelyn is Insta-famous! She loves bragging about how her gorgeous green leaves get her a ton of likes. We have to admit she does look amazing. We understand you all adore her. Eileen is part of the famous Ficus family and she's not the only stunner in the fam. The Ficus plants have beautiful leaves. Some are big while some are small. We really love them all. Evelyn is an air purifying plant but also slightly poisonous so don't get too close for a Fi-kiss! This is perhaps a little unexpected, but did you know the Plantsome family also has some real music lovers? You see, Evelyn is Eileen's sister. And boy do these Fiddle Leaf Figs like to party. Evelyn is all about that Jazz but she doesn't shy away from pop or rock songs either. Let her listen to your favourite albums of Rihanna and Radiohead. She'll love it!

For that reason you can notice her leaves perform a slow dance during the day and rise at night! So, if Abby looks a bit different every time you look at her, it's not your head playing with you. Abby here is actually a plant with fame! You see, she was awarded the  Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. It was a long time ago but she showed us the medal and we were honestly quite impressed. She doesn't like to talk about it, though. The acceptance speech and being in the spotlight was kinda nerve wrecking you know. She prefers to be alone chilling with a book, near a North or East facing window. She's just fine being left alone like that. But please - filtered light only and high humidity! Oh and no drafts please. So Temperamental Abby! 15 33 Frequent Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/calathea-zebrina-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Calathea1inava.png?v=1587574034 4564865089618 Dracaena Deremensis Art Carmen (XL) Tito His real name is Dracaena Art Carmen or Dracaena Tree but he grew up in the rougher climates of Africa.

There, we said it! Our Audrey as we lovingly call her is a stunner! This particular version was grown bushy and short but Ficus Audrey plants can grow tall and tree like if that's your thing, too! You can basically train her to reach tree like proportions. And on top of that, Audrey is much easier to take care of than her relatives Evelyn and Eileen (fiddle leaf fig). Oh my, what is not to like here! The Ficus Audrey is the national plant of India where you'll find them growing to immense size. These are beautiful plants with almost silk like leaves and a beautiful white stem. We are not surprised India chose this beauty as its national plant. Audrey is stunning! 25 100 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-benghalensis-ficus-audrey http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusAudreyBhengalensis10innewstand.png?v=1609955769 4524333924434 Pothos Gold on Pole (XL) Amelia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Amelia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying the skies in her Lockheed Vega, but she's retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum (or Pothos) is known and loved for its easy character and our Amelia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be some huge vines draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Amelia's known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. Obey that and she'll look like Amelian dollars (heh). 25 80 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/pothos-on-pole-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosGoldPole3Gpot.png?v=1609956267 4773002903634 White Nerve Plant | Fittonia Albivenis (S) Chad Chad is the epitome of a gym bro. He’s in the gym every day working out and knows everyone there. “Hey Patrick whatsup bro! Can you spot me real quick?” Chad loves to party but only if it’s near a beach or at least beach themed so he can attend with his shirt off. On the off-chance that Chad goes to a normal party, he’ll wear the tightest thing he can find because “gotta show off the gains, bro”. The worst day of Chad’s life was when he went to the gym and somebody swiped his protein flask. Daf*k! He went into a rage and posted on social media a reward for anybody who could bring it back to him and identify the culprit. His exact caption on the video was “Haters gonna hate. Gainers gonna gain." Fittonia a.k.a The White Nerve plant is known for...wait for it...the white veins that beautifully contrast against the green leaves. You wouldn't think it would you! One could even say that the brighter the white veins, the more “fit (tonia)” the plant is, probably from all those pull ups that Chad does in the gym. But just like when you're doing those burpees, hydration is key here! Chad needs his water, if Chad doesn’t get enough water for his gains he'll faint and wilt on the spot. Chad loves bright, indirect light, not just because it’s perfect for gym selfies but also it’s great for his leaves. As Chad is originally from Peru, a nice, humid atmosphere would be appreciated - maybe in a bathroom or a kitchen windowsill. 10 12 Moderate Not a strong air purifier Low light Once every two years Monthly in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/white-nerve-plant-fittonia-albivenis-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FittoniaWhiteNerve4inpot.png?v=1609956052 4768166346834 Aglaonema Siam Aurora (M) Rhonda You can’t take Rhonda to eat anywhere. She’s gluten-free, egg-free, wheat-free, meat-free and evidently fun-free. If Rhonda doesn’t know what’s in her food, down to every single ingredient, then she won’t eat it. Rhonda is all too happy to tell you about how much energy she has since she changed her diet and how eating dairy is destroying the universe. Rhonda doesn’t get the idea of “taking-it-too-far”, she’s currently creating a campaign for schools to ban birthday cakes. Rhonda, are you okay? The Aglaonema Siam Aurora is native to Asia and is a flowering plant that’s part of the Arum family. Its foliage comes in a variety of colours and patterns, most notably the vibrant pink on the edges of the leaves, the veins and the stem. Hmm...with such a spectacular look, maybe Rhonda was right about the diet thing! She looks so fine! Perfect if you’re looking for a plant to add a bit of style or flamboyance to your house. But for Rhonda's sake, please keep this Aglaonema's soil moist (organic water only, she hates additives) and place in low to medium light conditions. She gets cold quickly though, so don’t have her shivering outside in fall and winter! 15 36 Moderate Strong air purifying Partial shade Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/aglaonema-siam-aurora-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AglaonemaSiamAurora6inpot.png?v=1609955241 4743577796690 Livistona Fan Palm (XL) Xia Xia's cascading fan-shaped leaves with green and yellow tones are a true tropical delight! This Chinese Fan Palm can slowly grow up to 6 feet tall, and, unlike most palms, Xia can tolerate a bit of under watering, cold temperatures and even partial shade conditions!! Having said that, Xia will always be a lot happier with bright, indirect sunlight and thorough watering once a week. Don't you wish it felt like summertime all year long? Well... meet Xia! This picture-perfect gal will enchant you with her big tropical vibes regardless of the season. The story goes that Xia moved here after hearing about BC's unforgettable summers. You know... the lakes, the hikes, the beach... Yup, no doubt she made the right choice! Now, how do we tell her it rains for more than half of the year? 25 90 Frequent Low air purifier Indirect light Not toxic Once every two years Once every two months in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/livistona-fan-palm-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/LivistonaFanPalm3Gpot.png?v=1609955978 4737794015314 Opuntia Rufida Minima (S) Becky Becky is as basic as they come. She doesn’t know much about mottos (she failed sociology) but she lives by the saying “live fast. Die young”. Becky has no real plan in life but that’s okay y’know? It’s totally all about the journey. I mean, who knows about tomorrow? Becky certainly doesn’t. As long as she has a pumpkin spiced latte in one in one hand leaf and her iPhone in the other. She’s unstoppable. Becky’s are small of a Prickly Pear Cactus and they only grow to 10 inches. Which is great because Becky loves her in-- whoah, okay we’re not going there. Their pads are covered with glochids which are tiny cinnamon colored spines. If you find the soil is dry, wet thoroughly with pumpkin spiced latte water, except for in the winter where too much watering can cause it to lose roots. 10 15 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-rufida-minima-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpuntiaRufidaMinima4inpot.png?v=1609956080 4733631889490 Senecio Kilimanjaro (S) Tabitha Tabitha is old. Like Bible old. You can tell by the silvery-grey leaves that she spouts. She’s not quite a silver fox. More a silver magpie. Tabitha remembers when things were different, when milk cost just a few cents and a hard day’s work was something to be admired. She hates smartphones and how instant everything is. She met her late husband (rest his soul) at the market buying fresh tomatoes for supper. There was no tinder, bumble or fondle (the last one doesn’t exist but Tabitha feels it could. Just sign up. And fondle one another). Tabitha is another entry in the senecio family, she’s not stringy like the others but she’s just as succulent. Tabithas are well versed to life in a nursing home container and at her age, growth still comes surprisingly fast (crazy right?), just give her ample sunlight. Morning sunlight really brightens her day. To provide the best environment, ensure her soil is always well drained and she'd appreciate it if you would repot her in some succulent mix soil. Root rot can become a serious issue if the soil is too wet! 10 20 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Very toxic - careful with pets/kids Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-kilimanjaro-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SenecioKilimanjaropot.png?v=1609956354 4694775234642 Dracaena Sanderiana | Green Ribbon Plant (M) Conrad His real name is Dracaena Sanderiana but over here he's just Conrad and he just got back from a spiritual trip to China to learn more about Feng Shui and the fine arts of Chinese metaphysics. He told us he learned that we all need to find peace and harmony between mankind and nature. Well amen brother, we're with you. The Dracaena Sanderiana belongs to the family of Asparagaceae and please don't ask us to pronounce it. We tried using it in scrabble but we ran out of vowels. Anyhow, if you think she's got a weird family name then hold on, because it gets even weirder. The Sanderiana was named after a German Scientist, but is a famous plant in India, where it is mostly imported from China, where they grow them as 'Lucky bamboo', even though it isn't a bamboo at all. Gosh, plant life can be so confusing. 15 35 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-sanderiana-green-ribbon-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Ribbonplant6inpot.png?v=1609955675 4687865643090 Nemanthus Hypocyrta (M) Eloa For Eloa, Carnival happens almost every day! This Brazilian beauty knows how to brag and honestly, who wouldn't? Those bright orange flowers and Samba moves make everyone go crazy. But hey, easy tiger! Eloa also plays hard to get and likes to hang out near the clouds. After all, she is a true rainforest goddess and should be treated like one! The Nemanthus is famous for its charming looks. In the summer, Eloa puts her Carnival costume on and produces goldfish-like flowers, making her the centre of the universe. This tropical cascading plant loves water and plenty of indirect sunlight. Treat her well and she might even reward you with flowers year-around. Her ideal date? A picnic on the beach, under the shade of a palapa, drinks and some Bossa nova playing in the background ;) 15 26 Average Low air purifier Indirect light Safe for pets!

It was 3am and we were working our way through a full stack of buttermilk pancakes at one of those 24 hour joints just off the strip. She was in one of the booths at the back of the room conducting a little off-license gambling operation - playing a shell game. She was so charming and smooth we fell for her immediately. As fast as you can say "flapjack" she had cleaned us out completely. That's OK, caveat emptor right? She is a money plant after all! What a delightful plant Penny is! Her big pancake shaped leaves remind you of Happy Faces and happy times. She is an easy plant to care for and grow. Just keep her well watered (her roots don't like to dry out) and in a nice bright spot and she will grow lots of new Pennies. That's right, it is super easy to propagate Penny so you can give good luck Pennies to friends and they can do the same and so on, and so on... 15 22 Frequent Low air purifying Bright spot, no direct sunlight Non-toxic Every two years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/pilea-peperomioides-pancake-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pancake6inarya.png?v=1609956098 4588547965010 Asplenium Leslie | Birds Nest Fern (M) Romaine "Hey! did someone order a burger no patty, no bun, no cheese!?" Oh my... it's you Romaine! So sorry! Let us make it up to you okay? No..! No..! No pun intended Romaine... Romaine? Romaine! Asplenium Ferns are more commonly called Birds nest Ferns because of how the centre looks almost like a little birds nest. Rest assured, you there's no tweeting coming from Romaine over here. Ferns of this kind are known for their wavy and crinkly fronds. It makes the Birds nest Fern really stand out from other plants. We'll let you decide whether that's a good or a bad thing! 15 28 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/asplenium-antiquum-leslie-birds-nest-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/aspleniumniduscrissie6inpot.png?v=1609955311 4931162570834 Stromanthe Magic Star (M) Criss : Criss is a magician! Not only can he turn sunshine into oxygen—which doesn’t make for good television—he can also do cool things, like ride motorcycles into the Grand Canyon and levitate between tall buildings. Criss is a one of a kind, generation defining plant. He was even named Magicstar of the Century by the International Magicstar Society (who were not available for comment at the time of this write up). The only people who won’t like Criss are people whose girlfriends he might impress with his sick magic tricks. Bippity, boppity, keep track of your boo. Stromanthe Magic Star may sound like the stage name of your favourite X-rated movie (you dirty dog you!), but it’s actually a plant! If you're wondering how they come up with it don't worry, so are we. Backstage though, you can call this one Criss. His leaves are covered in a spray of white flecks, like someone splattered him with paint (or something) and his bright purple undersides reveal his adventurous side! Stromanthe plants like a slightly moist soil at all times and indirect sunlight, oh and making people uncomfortable. You still feeling good about all this? 15 32 Regular water needed Strong air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic to humans and pets Once every two years Once a month during spring, summer, and fall https://plantsome.ca/products/stromanthe-magic-star-m-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StromantheMagicStar6inpot.png?v=1610572446 4926001315922 Hoya Australis Grande (S) Isla Variegated leaves, CHECK! Beautiful flowers, CHECK! Easy to care for plant, CHECK! Need we say more? Isla is just a no-brainer plant that everyone should aspire to own and we're not saying that because we bought a few to many! Fun fact: the Hoya was named by a botanist in the 19th century in honour of his friend Thomas Hoy. Talking about taking your friendships to the next level! We have to admit we're having a bit of a crush on Hoya's lately. But don't they look ah-ma-zing! These beautiful and easy to care for plants can bloom under the right conditions and put on quite a show! There is a big chance that it may take two or three years before your Hoya will show its most prized possession but oh, oh the delight when you first find these pretty flowers nestled in between the leaves. Its a sight to behold. 10 19 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-australis-grande-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HoyaGrandeAustralis4inpot.png?v=1610574153 4919301341266 Peperomia Obtusifolia | Green (M) Ronaldo Our Brazilian Ronaldo is a real chill dude who doesn't require a lot of attention. He is kind to pets and will clean and purify the air in your home every day. A great choice for the beginner plant parent if you're asking us! The Brazillian Ronaldo is a real lover of life. He is easily satisfied, a real minimalist we should say. This also makes him a perfect gift. With Ronaldo you can't really go wrong. His succulently thick and bright green colored leaves will spruce up your home like nothing else. In Brazil, the Peperomia plant is known to be gifted as a sign that 'everything will be alright'. What a great mantra to live by. 15 28 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-obtusifolia-green-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/GreenPeperomia6inpot.png?v=1609956159 4810282041426 Philodendron Cordatum Lemon Lime (L) Kate Sigh! Remember back in grade 5, you were sitting in the back of the class and there was that girl in the second row, the one with two giant braids, mischievous eyes and rosy cheeks? You would sit there and dream about her all day long thinking you were going to get married and have kids and a dog and a house in the burbs... Well that girl is Kate and today she runs an ink shop down on the Drive. She is married to Lori and was elected to the Parks Board last year. We love Kate because she defies convention and makes sh*t happen. Go Kate! What's not to love about a plant that has irresistible heart-shaped leaves? Kate is a vine so she can grow as a trailing/hanging plant or as a climbing plant depending on your tastes. Furthermore Kate is a jungle plant so she loves warm, humid environments and bright, filtered sun but no direct light - think of all of those jungle plants lliving under the shade of the giant jungle trees. If Kate's vines grow too long don't be afraid to trim them back, that will help her to fill out a little more. 21 35 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-cordatum-lemon-lime-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronLemonLime8inpot.png?v=1609956197 4756909129810 Opuntia Emerald Wave (S) AllyMae It’s impossible to hate Ally-Mae, it’s not just that she’s ridiculously cute but she’s also the nicest plant ever! Ally-Mae is the kind of person who remembers your birthday and she doesn’t even have Facebook. Ally-Mae just knows when you’re not feeling yourself, don’t ask me how, she just knows. When you talk, she actually listens, she’s not waiting to bring the conversation back to herself. And with ears shaped like a bunny it’s no wonder she listens so well! Ally-Mae is the friend we all need and deserve but don’t always get. She puts the end in “friend” as in “end of facing your troubles alone!” The Opuntia is a fan favourite among #PlantParents due to the cacti’s pads that very closely resemble the ears of a rabbit. Unlike other cacti the pads aren’t covered in harmful spines but instead aureoles reminiscent of balls of cotton (insert cute emoji). These adorable plants require full sun or as much as you can find! When watering check to make sure it’s soil is dry (DRY!) before watering again. Usually once every three weeks in spring and summer and only twice in the six months thereafter (fall and winter)! The perfect holiday plant! 10 15 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-roller-coaster-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpuntiaEmeraldWave4inpot.png?v=1609956073 4721261969490 Opuntia Monacantha Josephs Coat (S) Joe Joe thinks we're all living in one big computer simulation. At the office, he spends his days reading all about quantum indeterminacy and who knows what else...Yep, he's a pretty sharp fella! Just the other day he explained to us why stars look like they have points. Definitely not what we expected! Point taken! The Opuntia Monacantha Variegata (or Joseph's Coat) is a winsome, marbled cactus with low-key tones of white, yellow and sometimes pink. Talk about a colourful cactus! This unique fella produces dashing red flowers during spring and summer if you treat him well, and can also grow taller than you think! As with most cactus, Joe requires little care, although he seriously enjoys that good ol' bright, indirect sunlight. Shine on! 10 18 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-monacantha-monstrose-josephs-coat-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpuntiaMonacantha4inpot.png?v=1609955962 4721240440914 Senecio Radicans | String of Bananas (M) Ana Just like her trailing leaves, Ana loves to go with the flow. But it wasn't always like that. After years of grinding away in a cubicle with way too much shade and not enough sun she left corporate life behind her and bought a food truck. Now Ana gets to do what she's always wanted—travel to new places, hang out and sell organic, gluten-free, non-GMO banana bread at local farmer's markets. Her former co-workers say she went bananas but we think Ana is living her best life. You grow girl! The Senecio Radicans is a cute little trailing plant that needs very little care. She doesn't mind your 'oops, I totally forgot to water the plants' attitude and will grow more banana strings at lightning speed. Ana's low maintenance attitude make her perfect for the beginner plant parent. You can expect her leaves to grow fast so don't be affraid to test those new pruning sheers you bought! Ana's a perfect guinea pig to test  that DIY-haircut you were going to give yourself. With Ana, anything grows! 15 16 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Very toxic - careful with pets/kids Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-radicans-string-of-bananas-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofBananas6inpot.png?v=1609956344 4687763308626 Schefflera Gold Capella (XL) Seth Shaka! That most respected hand greeting from the little patch of paradise in the middle of the Pacific Ocean called Hawaii. Seth comes from there - he was actually born in Australia but ended up in Hawaii (a story for another day) - and you only need to look at his hand-shaped leaves to know that this Dude's giving shakas, high fives and good vibes all day long. His sun-kissed blond highlights and good going nature mean that Surfer Seth is going to be happy wherever he ends up - and safe to say you will be too. Seth is a sun worshipper, except like every surfer that doesn't apply the Zinc, Seth can end up a little burned in the mid day sun. Ideally keep Seth in morning and evening direct light or just out of the direct sun in a nice bright spot in your room. Seth is pretty chill about watering frequency but keep his roots out of the water - he doesn't like wet feet! We know, its kinda strange for surfer to be like that, but whatev brah, to each his own! 25 65 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright (in)direct light Toxic to pets Every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/schefflera-gold-capella-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Scheffleragldcapella3Gpot.png?v=1609956338 4687753281618 Neanthebella | Parlour Palm (S) Vicky When all of your brothers and sisters are big and burly, you have to do something to stand out. Vicky's got attitude in spades. This girl will want you to give her the primo spot at the window sill and won't settle for anything less. She relegates cacti and succulents to kitchens and side tables and is not impressed by the big monstera in the corner. This parlour palm is here to stay and she wants all your other green amigos to know it, too! Vicky literally fits in the palm of your hand and isn't she a cutie! Vicky's native lands are Mexico and Guatemala but don't worry, she's very comfortable in Canadian households. In fact, the Parlour Palm as Vicky's called in regular parlance, has been a popular choice in homes all over the world since the Victorian age! How Vicky has been able to maintain her popularity for so long remains a mystery but we think it has something to do with that fantastic foliage. You grow girl! 10 30 Regular Strong air purifier Bright indirect light Pet friendly Once every year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/neanthebella-parlour-palm-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/parlourpalmpot.png?v=1609956103 4642978922578 Ficus Amstel | Alii (XL) Indah Indah is native to the Southeast Asian tropics, and just like her cousins Eileen and Gemma, she is an influencer. Indah creates those stunning slow-mo travel videos that make everyone jealous. And when it comes to cool Instagrammable moments, she has done it all! Skydiving in Dubai? Done. Going to Thailand's Full Moon Party? Done. Epic hiking on Nusa Penida? Done. Ahhhhhh, we get it Indah! Not everyone is as cool as you! If only we could go to Bali or Boracay every other week. Oh well... Indah means beautiful in Indonesian, and this Ficus Alii or Ficus Amstel is nothing but! Her refined long, narrow and shiny leaves... honestly the stuff of jungle dreams! Lucky for you, Indah's not really that high maintenance, contrary to many of her sisters and brothers (ficus), although she does have a couple of demands. Make sure you place her in a bright spot where she can get indirect sunlight and avoid low-light conditions. Also, water her soil frequently and evenly but allow it to dry at least 1-2" before watering again. During spring and summer, keep her happy with some liquid food once a month.  25 120 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-amstel-alii-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusAlii3Gusca.png?v=1609955767 4611870687314 Pachira Aquatica | Money Tree (L) Bucky Movie viper Gordon Gekko once said that greed is good. We, on the other hand, like to think that green is good. If you're not one to frown on making a little dough, though, Bucky's a keeper. For real! The Chinese say this fella (Pachira Aquatica) brings luck and guards treasures better than any safe. Bucky will also keep the air around you cleaner than a tax audit. So, consider Bucky an investment. Although not swimming in money like Uncle Scrooge, Bucky is quite the bon vivant in the botanical jet set. In South America, where the Pachira Aquatica comes from, Bucky thrives in riverbanks (and judging by its popular name, Money Tree, maybe in regular banks too?) and can even turn into a fancy tree, 30 meters high and all. His flowers can replace cocoa, but you'd better stick to the chocolate: the Pachira juice, like certain bonds, is moderately toxic. 21 80 Frequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot - no direct sunlight Moderately toxic Smaller ones - every year Once a month during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pachira-aquatica-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pachira8inboule8in.png?v=1609956094 4582428016722 Fatsia Japonica | Paper Plant (XXL) Sara Sara is the introspective type. She doesn't like the spotlight, even though she's sure to attract a few admiring glances when people notice her. Must be the hair; every year, she changes it for a new look! One thing we can tell you about Sara is that she sticks to her roots; did you know her family name, Fatsia, actually comes from its similarity to the Japanese word eight? It is a reference to the number of leaves she produces! She's also very reliable. As long as you give her a good place in your house - in her case, that means away from the sun -, she will give you nice leaves and quality air. 28 110 Regular Good air purifier Full or partial shade Slightly toxic Every year Every other week in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/fatsia-japonica-paper-plant-xxl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Fatsia12inchwebneptune.png?v=1587574122 4518079856722 Aglaonema Silver Bay (XL) Josh Meet Jeff's younger brother, Josh, aka the bon VIPlant in the family. Like his brother, he too values hard work - as long as it's not his hard work. In that sense, he's not the same as Jeff, but it's understandable: money doesn't spend itself, especially when you have lots of it. Leave it to Josh to go all Kardashian on the family fortune. If you look up "chillax" (yes, that's a word) in the dictionary, you'll see pictures of Josh just hanging out. His philosophy is that the only thing better than earning your place in the sun is waiting for someone else to find his, and then taking that spot. No wonder some people consider him a little shady sometimes. In his defense, though, he's always in good spirits, and you can almost feel the air getting lighter when he's in the room. It's probably because he is a good conversationalist (are we using big words, eh? Oh my Josh!) 27 80 Moderate Strong air purifying Partial shade Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/aglaonema-silver-bay-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AglaonemaSilverBay3Gpot.png?v=1609955237 4393588621394 Dracaena Deremensis | Art Carmen (XXL) Tito His real name is Dracaena Art Carmen or Dracaena Tree but he grew up in the rougher climates of Africa. Tito's weathered it all and has grown tall and strong. So if you are looking for a strong and stunning green amigo... get a Tito! Where weather conditions are rough, you'll find Tito. The Dracaena Art Carmen does not need a lot of water and will get really happy if you put him in a spot that is mostly shaded with some indirect sunlight. Tito is a master in production of oxygen and a king in eliminating harmful substances like Benzenes. Say hello to fresh air! 25 135 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-art-carmen http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dracaena_art_carmen_in_ava.png?v=1583801582 4858266091602 Dracaena Sunshine (XL) Abel Abel knows a thing or two about sacrifices. He wakes up superultra early to take care of his farm, works way past sunset under direct sunlight, and still has time to keep everything going in Farmville and Harvest Moon. No wonder some people might envy him. Don't think Abel is all virtue, though. Last time we met, he was vaping, for chrissake, and said he's not pet-friendly because he never really understood the hype about cat videos. Never really understood, as in: actually. Hates. Cats. Let that sink in for a while. Oh, and he also complained a lot about how hard life was for him. Making yourself a martyr can be such a drag sometimes. 25 120 Only a little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-sunshine-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracenaSunshine10inpot.png?v=1609955681 4832102580306 Podocarpus | Buddhist Pine (XL) Bao Rest easy and unwind because Bao is here to bring fresh air and peace to your home. This sophisticated, zen gentleman is certainly one of a kind and is ready to become your personal meditation coach. Before you wake up, Bao will have already meditated for at least two hours, so you'll need to do some catch up. Now, let's try it again c'mon: focus on your breathing, juuuuuust focussss... aaaahh... The Buddhist Pine has a vibrant, grass-like foliage that mesmerizes anyone who sees him. He's an easy going fella who doesn't require much care from you. However, make sure to keep him healthy by letting his soil dry before waterings and by placing him somewhere he can get bright light, including direct sunlight. Bao also has the potential to become a huge amigo, so he may require some trimming as his hair starts to grow. 25 95 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 3-4 years Biweekly during growing season https://plantsome.ca/products/podocarpus-buddhist-pine-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BuddhistPine10inpot.png?v=1609955462 4773097242706 Echinocactus Grusonii | Golden Barrel Cactus (L) Giuseppe Coronavirus hit Giuseppe hard. Not economically, of course, because he’s a cactus, but in matters of the heart. Giuseppe runs on love, passion, and a burning desire for the touch of a good woman. Zooming with his international arsenal of lovers isn’t as exciting as meeting them in person, looking them in the eye, and declaring his commitment. Strangely, the words “undying devotion” aren’t as effective on a conference call. Echinocactus Grusonii, or Golden Barrel Cacti, are cushion-like plants with colourful spines. Our Golden Barrel Cactus, Giuseppe, has typical cacti light and water needs (as in: a lot of the first and a little of the second) but Giuseppe doesn’t care about that. Biology bores him. His true passion is poetry. Giuseppe wrote the following piece about his survival needs, “I am but a cactus, lover of the sun/I am but a cactus, round and small/Please, for the love of the lord, get me out of this warehouse, I want to hug my fellow green amigos but they keep their social distance from me/I am but a cactus, friend to all.”  21 32 Very little Strong air purifier Bright direct light Not toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/echinocactus-grusonii-golden-barrel-cactus-l-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BarrelCactus8inpot.png?v=1609955863 4728766595154 Opuntia Cylindrica (S) Jerry Cacti come in many shapes and sizes and where some went for pads, others for columns, Jerry's gone for the cylindrical look. Its definitely a unique look in the desert! His almost round shaped leaves are riddled with sharp spines, for a good reason too! You see, not only does it protect little Jerry from being eaten by hungry animals, it also provides some much needed shade. It's a true story! Jerry's totally a self shade man! Jerry's actually an Opuntia Cylindrica, or just 'cactus' for short. He's a rough lookin fella but he's the kindest, cutest little cactus, really! He's easy like a sunday morning. A tiiiny bit of water when the soil has completely dried out is more than enough. No need to worry about your weekend trips away when Jerry's chilling in the window sill. He'll be just fine looking after things while you're gone. Oh and if you're nice (and patient), he might even expose his beautiful flower(s) in winter time.

Some say he's still got a stash of gold in his pot which is why he always has his guard up. We 'ouch!' tried 'ouch!' to find it 'ouch!' but Butch won't have it. Is his secret safe with you? Someone told us you were looking for easy, so let us introduce you to Butch. This Opuntia cactus is certainly not the hugging type, but what Butch lacks in the sensitivity department, he makes up for in the low-maintenance department. Prickly Pear Cacti are very easy to care for and only need watering when the soil has dried out completely. And when we say, completely we mean com-plete-ly! Too much TLC (water) is a surefire way to kill your Prickly Pear and no one likes to see a pear OD on water.

He's an avid surfer Southeast Asia competing in Palm Beach Florida. Coming all the way from the Philippines, Alon can't stop talking about all of his plantventures as a tour guide in Manila and Boracay. Now that he's in Canada, Alon says he can't wait to surf BC's cold waters in Tofino! Catch some gnarly waves bro! Alon is a smaller Palm but don't let his size fool you. Alon's very resistant to bugs and pests and super easy to care for, or so he says. Keep his soil slightly moist and Alon's a happy dude. He is a bit particular about fertilizer, though. Give him a little time release fertilizer at the start of the growing season. He prefers it over liquid fertilizer. Pellets bro! Pellets!

She will sometimes sing with us too. "Off the Florida Keys, there's a place called Kokomo That's where you want to go to get away from it all Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand We'll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band Down in Kokomo"". " Ladyfinger Palms are beloved around the world and its easy to see why. They are what lush plant jungle dreams are made of! Rhapis Palms have extremely lush and bushy fronds which separate from a singular stem at the base making them look almost like slender fingers, or so they say because we're still having a hard time seeing it to be honest. She's quite easy to take care of and can grow nicely in moderate to bright indirect light. Be careful not too use too much fertilizer because she's not a big eater! Use half strength when you do and only in summer.

He does not drink much and does not need to be in the sun. This is nice for all you north facing urban dwellers out there. Noah does not take well to Pets because he is slightly poisonous. Beyond that, Noah is a pretty chill dude and excellent at purifying the air. Thanks Noah! Noah's a bit of an oddball in the plant world. Not a big fan of a manicured look, Noah tends to let his leaves hang anywhere and everywhere. It gives him a bit of a tough-guy appearance but honestly, he's a softie with a big heart. Noah's officially a Dracaena Marginata but who's keeping score right? Noah loves to hang out in pretty much any room or corner which makes him an easy going dude. Now that's an easy plant to fall in love with! 21 65 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-l-dragon-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Marginata8infranco.png?v=1609955686 4597036548178 Dracaena Reflexa | Song of India (XL) India India is officially called a Dracaena Reflexa Variegata but since we're not playing scrabble we named this beauty India. She's not as burly and tough-looking as her brothers Tito and Mojo but don't be fooled by her silky looking leaves! India is tough as nails which makes her low maintenance and easy to care for. A stunning plant with an easy going character, we love it! Dracaena plants are beautiful and available in an abundance of varieties. India here is  certainly among one of the prettiest! She does not need a lot of water and will get really happy if you put her in a spot that is mostly shaded with some indirect light. She is a strong air purifier and takes out harmful substances such as benzenes like a kung-fu master.

If that's too technical: Oda is easier to take care of than a pet rock. Just take it easy with watering your Oda, especially in winter and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Oda, who also doesn't mind being put in a shaded spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other green amigo's cant handle. Oh and Oda does not need any plant food. Gosh Oda, what's not to like here? The Sansevieria Samurai is also known as the snake plant. To be honest, we don't get it. Snakes can't stand up, while Oda can. Snakes throw hissy fits, and Oda is as zen as a monk. Snakes crawl, and Oda doesn't crawl. Snakes always show up on planes, and Oda does not even know what planes are! All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of their leaves are. Get it? Snake plants are actually succulents which makes them truly one of the easiest to maintain. Oda also loves to purify your air but be careful with Fifi and Felix (pets) because this snake has a poisonous sap that hurts their tummy. 15 25 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-samurai-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaSamurai6inpot.png?v=1610570311 4894555373650 Epipremnum | Pothos Marble Queen (XL) Mia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie. The Epipremnum Aureum is a hanging plant that LOVES those high, hard-to-reach, arm-stretching, ladder-falling-while-watering areas in the house. Since the name Epipremnum Aureum reminded us of the spelling bee we failed, we decided to call her Mia. Legend has it that she used to spend her time flying shotgun in her sister's Lockheed Vega, but they are both retired. Now she just hangs around the Plantsome HQ, and whatever happened in Vega stayed in Vega. The Epipremnum is widely known and loved. Mia might just be a perfect example of that. Her leaves grow tremendously fast, which means that there will be a huge vine draping through your room in no time. On top of that, Mia known to be (queue high pitched voice) 'aweeeeeesome' at purifying the air, and also pretty chill when it comes to her favourite spots in the house. Her only request is not to be hung directly in sunlight. 25 37 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-pothos-marble-queen-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosMarbleQueen10inpot.png?v=1609956278 4773113069650 Neobuxbaumia Polylopha Cristata (S) Harold Harold’s not the tallest in the family but he told us how his brother reached 6ft by the time he reached high school. So there's that... Harold’s actually really funny with a quirky sense of humor but nobody cares because it’s just so friggin’ hard not to ask him about his bigger brother. Harold’s big brother is the kind of tall that makes you question how he’s the same species as you. When people find out he’s an I.T technician instead of a basketball player, their minds are fried. We'll take your word for it Harold. The Neobuxbaumia Polylopha is a very tall columnar cactus with a stem that kinda reminds you of a telephone pole, Harold however, is a cristata variant which liberally translated means little baby brother. Harold has lots of green narrow spaced ribs. In the summer nights Harold can bloom stunning flowers that are pink, dark-red or magenta. He keeps telling us how his bro grows up to 12 meters tall but don't worry, Harold isn't going supersize on you anytime soon. 10 14 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/neobuxbaumia-polylopha-cristata-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NeobuxbaumiaPolylopha4ininpot.png?v=1609956043 4767760482386 Euphorbia Ammak | African Golden Candelabra (L) Brandon Brandon’s that guy who comes to every party with his guitar so he can play everybody a song they never asked for. Brandon doesn’t talk much about anything that doesn’t focus on himself and his musical efforts. His favorite thing to show people (after his guitar of course) are the scars he’s gotten from playing the strings over the years. Brandon’s still bitter over his ex who ran away with the lead singer of his favorite band. He writes bitter-sweet songs that are actually pretty good but nobody has the heart to tell Brandon that she’s not coming back. The Euphorbia Ammak (African Golden Candleabra) can grow up to 10 meters tall! Wut! So if you don’t live in a place with high ceilings - outside might be a better option. The spines are brown and horn shaped and if given good conditions, Brandon will blossom with yellow-green flowers (and possibly a new song!) Brandon is pretty self-sufficient and doesn’t require much care other than your typical cactus care! Just note that Brandon doesn’t handle drought that well, or heartbreak for that matter, so weekly watering in the summer months may be in order. 21 48 Very little Not air purifying Bright, direct sunlight Toxic Once every two years Once every two months (spring, summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/euphorbia-ammak-african-golden-candelabra-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AfricanGoldenCandelabra8ininpot.png?v=1609955540 4758393290834 Opuntia Parryi Serpentina Cristata (S) Larry Larry tries too hard. He’s always trying to join in the conversation he’s not needed in or aimlessly talking about something nobody cares about. Don’t get me wrong, Larry’s a nice guy and everything but he’s got the self awareness of a desert cactus. It’s the beginning of the week. Everybody is tired. Impatiently waiting for Friday. And there goes Larry trying to blow up balloons for Monstera Monday. Stop it Larry! Those countless days in the desert totally messed up his ability to socialize and connect you know? Can you help us fix it? Larry is actually short for Opuntia Parryi Serpentina Cristata which is long for “prickly pear”, or in Larry’s case just a prick. Opuntia cacti need to be watered thoroughly when their soil is dry but only when it is really dry! And contrary to most of your green amigos, don't soak Larry, he hates it. A simple sprinkling of water is enough. So whatever you do, don’t invite your Larry out for drinks, he will talk down everybody’s mood. 10 14 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-parryi-serpentina-cristata-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpntiaParryiSerpentinaCristata4inwithpot.png?v=1609956078 4758215884882 Mammillaria Spinossisima Cristata | Brain Cactus (S) Azazel Nobody knows Azazel’s real name, but what we do know is that he is as ruthless as they come. Azazel’s moral compass always points to him, there is no line he will not cross, no evil he will not do to gain what he desires. Azazel is a snake, shown in his spiraly, curly stems that will prick those not paying attention. Rumour has it that Azazel doesn’t age, that he made a deal with the devil that puts him squarely in humanity’s path for eons. Many have tried to get their own back on Azazel. All have gone missing. The Mammillaria Spinossisima Cristata has reddy-brown or yellow spines and with its wavy stem form has been referred to as “brain cactus”. To give this plant the best fighting chance, grow it in cactus soil where it is able to receive full sun (you know, the blaring hot scorching type). When it comes to watering, only do so from mid-spring to summer and feed (once a month only) with a special cactus fertilizer.d Read that last sentence again, that means NO water in winter! You can move Azazel outside in summer. 10 14 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/mammillaria-spinossisima-cristata-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MammillariaSpinosissimaCristata4ininpot.png?v=1609955992 4733625040978 Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma | Mini Monstera Ginny (L) Nikki Just because Nikki is an easy plant to maintain, doesn’t mean she’s an easy plant to find. In order to “get down with the Nik-ness”, you must remind her how rare and special she is on the daily. She likes to think that she’s the last plant you think about at night and the first plant you think about in the morning. But, like, don’t get too obsessed because Nikki doesn’t like that. She’s cool and casual. Cool, casual, and ready to be showered in your unrelenting love. Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma. Raaa-fid-a-fooor...screw it. This plant is chill. She doesn’t have time for nine syllable Latin names and neither do we. Her name is Nikki (two syllables, thank you very much) and she’s always down to hang. Well, as long as the lighting is good and her soil is moist. Not too moist: remember to drain the soil. 21 52 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-ginny-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronRufidaMinimapot.png?v=1609956175 4707000320082 Philodendron Imperial Green (XL) Zulay A healthy body needs a healthy mind. Zulay believes it and acts accordingly, taking comparative literature classes. Her belief is that enlightenment can come from all different angles, and she wants to make sure her mental and physical self is getting the right kind of stimulation. Lately, Zulay's even considered learning a new trade, like plumbing or heavy machinery repairs. Talk about a woman with power. Philodendron Imperial are beautiful big-leaf tropical plants that are easy to care for. Huge leaves + easy to care for = plant heaven we think!

Dalton is that badass guy. One look at him and you'll get it. He is dark and brooding and tough as steel. But don't let his "anti-hero" status concern you. Dalton is really easy to have around, so easy in fact that he might even help you folding laundry or doing the dishes - we recommend that you keep your six shooter locked and out of reach however! Like his brothers Luke and Lucky (heh), Dalton is not a fussy plant. ZZ plants are known for their wide tolerance of differing light and water conditions and their low-maintenance care. What makes Dalton so special is his dark-hued leaves which range from green to violet-purple black. As his leaves form they start a bright green and gradually over about 2 months turn darker and darker. Dalton is a good looking plant and that explains why he is considered "rare" or hard to get. Rare or not we love having him around. 25 75 Regular Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-black-raven-xl-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BlackRavenZZ3Gava.png?v=1609956535 4605645717586 Philodendron Selloum (XL) | Hope Lara Lara is a bit of a plantrepeneur here at Plantsome. Just last week we saw her dealing in high nitrogen fertilizer. Tito and Gino totally fell for it, those poor guys. Lara meanwhile has told us she's looking to go legit and even asked us to help her put together a seed round for her. It might just be a succulent opportunity! May we introduce you to the Philodendron Selloum! If big leaves are totally your thing, then Lara is totally your gal. This chick is packing green like you've never seen!  Her wavy and welcoming leaves are sure to turn your home into an urban jungle! The Philodendron Selloum is also quite an easy plant to maintain. Light or shade doesn't matter much to Lara.

Cacti are known to be really good at: a) storing water for long periods of time, b) living for long periods of time - up to 300 years, c) producing delicious, edible fruit, d) making hallucinogenic substances that induce a two-way communication with God. Answer: All of the above! Anciano is a False Saguaro Cactus, originally from South America, now lives in the Black Rock desert of Nevada. He loves where he lives because no one bothers him and he can just "be" - except when 70,000 Burners descend on his patch of paradise in early September. He does his best to hide under a rock or pretend to be some artsy sculpture representing nature but it's not easy. He survives Burning Man every year because no one seems to want to touch him - except for that one year when a small group of Freaks tried to smoke him. Thank God for spikes! Anciano is a classic columnar (cool word alert) cactus - the one you see when Road Runner is dodging Coyote. In the wild they can really go supersize, up to 10 m tall! At home they rarely grow beyond a metre, though. These beauties are naturally found in the desert where the sun shines all day and the only shadow you can find is your own. Therefore, low humidity is no-problemo for this amigo but lots and lots of bright (sun)light is a must! Do keep the little ones away because cacti have spikes and Saguaro over here is no exception - his largest thorns can grow to be 5 cm long!

Anyway lets just say Mexico is sooo much more than that trip and the Agave is sooo much more than being the principle source of Tequila. Guadelupe should know, she is an Agave Blue Glow and a Mexican cultural ambassador extraordinaire. She lives in the "real" Mexico, away from the beach in a beautiful pueblo in Oaxaca. She will take your breath away when she belts out folk tunes by Lola Bertran and cooks mole and tamales using her family's traditional recipes. Viva Mexico! Viva Guadelupe! Like all agave, Guadelupe will love you if you put her in a hot, sunny location - and leave her there! No fussing around here. She likes heat, not a lot of water and doesn't like to be bothered. When treated this way Guadeluupe will produce those beautiful blue-tinged leaves that are at once captivating and sharp! Keep the kids and pets away because Guadelupe can give quite the prick! Ouch!

These plants are actually not 100% succulent but a cross breed between a Manfreda and an Agave (succulent). New varieties of Mangave are still created to this day such as Manny's Pineapple Express! The Mangaves leaves are not as sharp and thick as those of an Agave but the spines still sting. Ouch! If you wish there was a polar express train running around your Christmas tree all year long, then hear us out because we have an excellent idea!

There, we said. What, that didn't ring any bells? Ok, we'll explain. Ed's also called an 'air plant'. Now, pretty sure THAT hit the nail on the Ed, amirite? Errr...anyway, you might have heard of Fred? That's Ed's little brother. They're both experts at making people happy. Both brothers are excellent gifts, so it depends on the effect you want: while one will make whoever you give it to Fred over heels, the other is Drop Ed Gorgeous. If you're trying to keep something alive for more than two weeks with a 100% success rate, Ed's your guy. Ultra low maintenance, that's totally his thing. This guy can filter water straight from the air. Here at Plantsome HQ, Ed does love an occasional mist, about once every week is ideal but if your Ed 'mist' out on last weeks misting, he won't mind much. Air plants are epiphytes which means they cling onto other things and catch nutrients from the air. They do not like to be planted in soil and although they look like they don't need much, they still need light and water just like every other plant. Ed loves to be hung from the air, dangling from the ceiling is his favourite hobby. He's also really keen on terrariums. Give him a warm welcome will ya?*Side table not included* 10 12 Spray occasionally for its Low air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Non-toxic Not applicable None https://plantsome.ca/products/tillandsia-xerographica-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/estt.png?v=1583363243 4924230107218 Hoya Carnosa Crinkle Curl | Hindu Rope (L) Sri Sri might look like he's got all of his leaves just up in crinkles for no reason but you'd be so wrong to think that. You see, Sri is a master Yogi. And he's mastered the pose of the 'crinkle leaf' so well that it has become a permanent pose! All stretching and bending aside, we think those crinkly leaves look hella cute and make for a perfect backdrop when those beautiful Hoya leaves are in bloom. Wouldn't you agree? So you are wondering what the deal is with those Hoya plants everyone is raving about? Well let us tell you: these magnificent green amigos are capable of producing some pretty amazing flowers (if you are kind to them, and incredibly patient, and maybe a little bit lucky too?). This Hoya Hindu Rope is no exception! Flowering could take up to two years but the result is stunning. If you want yours to flower, keep the humidity at over 40%, fertilize regularly in spring and summer and water thoroughly when the soil has dried out about a third of the way through.

Beautiful flowers, CHECK! Easy to care for plant, CHECK! Need we say more? Reza is just a no-brainer plant that everyone should aspire to own and we're not saying that because we bought a few to many! Fun fact: the Hoya was named by a botanist in the 19th century in honour of his friend Thomas Hoy. Talking about taking your friendships to the next level! Hoya's are b(l)ooming and for good reason! These beautiful and easy to care for tropicals have stunning flowers, if you are a patient plant parent that is. There is a big chance that it may take two or three years before your Hoya will show its most prized possession but oh, oh the delight when you first find these pretty flowers nestled in between the leaves. Its a sight to behold! We've named this Hoya Publicalyx 'Reza which means 'hope' and we sure hope that he'll bring you some beautiful blooms! 25 70 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-pubicalyx-porcelain-flower-on-pole-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hoyapublicalyx8inTotempot.png?v=1609955899 4777317859410 Dracaena Deremensis (XL) Kai His real name is Dracaena Deremensis or Dracaena Tree but he grew up in the rougher climates of Africa so we've named him Kai. This tough amigo weathered it all and has grown tall and strong. So if you are looking for a strong and stunning green amigo... get a Kai! Where weather conditions are rough, you'll find Tito. The Dracaena Art Carmen does not need a lot of water and will get really happy if you put him in a spot that is mostly shaded with some indirect sunlight. Tito is a master in production of oxygen and a king in eliminating harmful substances like Benzenes. Say hello to fresh air! 25 105 Little Strong air purifyer Partial shade Lightly poisonous Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-deremensis-xl-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaDeremensisinpot.png?v=1609955639 4773116936274 Hildewinteria Aureispina Cristata (S) Federica Federica is Italian, born and raised, and she’ll never let you forget it. There is no topic you can mention that she won’t think is better in “he-taly”. You could be talking about food and she’d say “aye no, in he-taly ze food iz huh-mazing, ze pasta, ze tomay-to, iz ze best”. One of her co-workers mentioned visiting London and Toronto but was quickly told “there iz no flay-vah in theez cee-tees, Milan is full of fush-on and style, and ze vatican in Rome aye come ornn!” It’s not that Federica looks down on other cities, not at all, she’s well travelled and enjoys different cultures. But *sighs in Italian* nothing beats “he-taly” you see. The Hildewinteria aureispina cristata (Cleistocactus) requires full sun or half shade (preferably Italian sunshine because “eets ze best, no?!”) Federica can be placed in a container with a well drained soil mix and water her generously during the summer. Of course, don’t forget to allow her to fully dry before watering again. During the winter months she should be kept rather dry unless you want to be insulted in Italian! Since she’s a rapid grower, she’ll need plenty of space for her roots and repotting should be done every other year or when she has outgrown her pot. 10 15 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/hildewinteria-aureispina-cristata-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HildewinteriaAureispinaCristata4inwithpot.png?v=1609955875 4773102059602 Echinocactus Grusonii | Golden Barrel Cactus (XL) Giuseppe Coronavirus hit Giuseppe hard. Not economically, of course, because he’s a cactus, but in matters of the heart. Giuseppe runs on love, passion, and a burning desire for the touch of a good woman. Zooming with his international arsenal of lovers isn’t as exciting as meeting them in person, looking them in the eye, and declaring his commitment. Strangely, the words “undying devotion” aren’t as effective on a conference call. Echinocactus Grusonii, or Golden Barrel Cacti, are cushion-like plants with colourful spines. Our Golden Barrel Cactus, Giuseppe, has typical cacti light and water needs (as in: a lot of the first and a little of the second) but Giuseppe doesn’t care about that. Biology bores him. His true passion is poetry. Giuseppe wrote the following piece about his survival needs, “I am but a cactus, lover of the sun/I am but a cactus, round and small/Please, for the love of the lord, get me out of this warehouse, I want to hug my fellow green amigos but they keep their social distance from me/I am but a cactus, friend to all.”  25 40 Very little Strong air purifier Bright direct light Not toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/echinocactus-grusonii-golden-barrel-cactus-xl-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BarrelCactusGold10inpot.png?v=1609955861 4766681268306 Sansevieria Jade Hahnii | Birds Nest Snake Plant (S) Mimi Mimi is your gateway plant to plant parenthood. If that's too technical: Mimi is easier to take care of than a pet rock (okay, almost as easy). Just take it easy with watering Mimi and you'll have a happy plant! Less is more for Mimi, such a low maintenance girl. Mimi also doesn't mind being put in a shady spot. Perfect for those corners in the home that your other plant friends frown upon. Oh and Mimi does not need any plant food. Gosh Mimi, what's not to like here? Not so sure about this whole plant parent thing? Ease into it then by getting yourself a snake plant! Sansevieria plants are having a bit of a moment so you'd be a hip plant parent right out of the gate! The name Snake plant might sound daunting, but rest assured: Snakes are sssssssuper easy to maintain and we've made this green amigo promise  it  won't strangle you in your sleep. These low maintenance houseplants only need water about once a month and can be left in moderate to bright light. When you’re watering yours, check to see if the soil is dry a few inches deep before watering again. Overwatering can lead to soft, brown mushy leaves and snakes really don't appreciate mushy leaves. It totally messes up their vibes. 10 18 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-jade-hahnii-birds-nest-snake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HahniiSnakeJade4inpot.png?v=1609956395 4733635231826 Tradescantia Zebrina Variegata | Wandering Plant (L) Celia Celia likes to disappear. It’s kind of her thing. It’s why she’s such a hard plant to find and why we were so proud to have her here. We’d already taken about a million photos before we realized we had the wrong plant. It was actually her younger sister Sylvie, masquerading as Celia to help her maintain her rare, cool girl image. Celia says she doesn’t mind hanging out with us, as long as there’s no photographic evidence. Sort of like high school all over again but it’s chill. We’re over it. Though some people know this plant as  “the wandering Jew”, Celia prefers the name “wandering queen” because it reflects how she feels on the inside. Her siblings, Willie and Sylvie, are done with the name too. We support our plants so we’re committed to the rebranding. Place Celia in indirect light and keep her soil moist but don’t water directly into her crown or she could get root rot. Nothing queenly about that. 21 28 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-zebrina-variegata-wandering-jew-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/VariegatedWanderingJew8inpot.png?v=1609956490 4727785848914 Opuntia Argentiniana (S) Lucas Back in the day, Lucas used to be a professional dancer. He told us he came first place in 'so you think you've got pads' but we're skeptical. This sun-loving friend says he still misses those golden days in Buenos Aires, where he would dance tango until the bars ran out of Yerba Mate. At times, he simply can't resist to show off his refined moves at the office, and we honestly love it! So elegant, so sharp! Lucas is a beautiful cactus with some of the finest flat, pad-shaped leaves out there. A fast grower, too! This Opuntia Argentiniana can reach heights of a meter tall if treated well. Lucky for you, caring for Lucas will be a breeze as he requires very little to thrive. Give him a bright spot to shine, the more tanning hours the better! He hibernates in winter so water him extra sparingly in winter! 10 15 Very little Low air purifier Bright, direct sunlight Slightly toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/opuntia-argentiniana-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/OpuntiaArgentiniana4inpot.png?v=1609956069 4702846648402 Philodendron Xanadu (XL) Daniel Daniel is just so ready to become TikTok famous. And we've heard he's taking this very seriously. Apparently, Daniel hasn't stopped devoting hours and hours practicing the "woah". To be honest, he told us not to watch until he perfects all the moves. And that's alright! We know he'll be great at it, specially with those fire 'shoes' he's always wearing. Damn Daniel! You just can't stop being cool, eh? If you like your plants bushy, meet Daniel. The Philodendron Xanadu won't really ask for much (just some water, thanks). other than that you give him some time to flex his leaves in front of your other plants. To ensure he stays healthy though, top him up with some H2O whenever the top half of his soil dries up and don't forget to place him somewhere with bright, indirect sunlight. Oh, and keep Daniel away from pets as he is slightly toxic and will cause a tummy ache if his leaves or stalks are ingested. Eek! 25 80 Average Strong air purifying Medium to low light needed Poisonous Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-xanadu-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Xanadupot.png?v=1609956216 4635202191442 Pilea Spruceana (M) Sasha Ever since she did that Plantvengers movie, paparazzi won't stop taking pictures of Sasha. Her natural bronze leaves can be seen from a mile away, so she literally can't 'leave' the house without having crowds all around her! Sasha takes it in strides, though, and remains the same easy-going plant she always was. She has even thought about moving with her cousin Al to Kitimat, away from the spotlight. Poor Sasha, who knew fame would be this hard? Despite what tabloids may say about her, Sasha is really easy going. Just put her somewhere she can get bright, indirect sunlight, and you'll be amazed by how much she actually likes to show off her beautiful bronze foliage. Also, unlike most celebs, Sasha does not need fancy water from Fiji to get her grow game on. But please do water her frequently, especially during spring and summer or she'll get grumpy. 15 30 Regular Low air purifying Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 2 years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/pilea-bronze http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BronzePilea6inpot.png?v=1609956224 4623439331410 Ficus Benghalensis | Ficus Audrey Trunk (XL) Audrey The Ficus Audrey will become Canada's next top plant. There, we said it! Our Audrey as we lovingly call her is a stunner! This particular version was grown bushy and short but Ficus Audrey plants can grow tall and tree like if that's your thing, too! You can basically train her to reach tree like proportions. And on top of that, Audrey is much easier to take care of than her relatives Evelyn and Eileen (fiddle leaf fig). Oh my, what is not to like here! The Ficus Audrey is the national plant of India where you'll find them growing to immense size. These are beautiful plants with almost silk like leaves and a beautiful white stem. We are not surprised India chose this beauty as its national plant. Audrey is stunning! 25 110 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ficus-benghalensis-ficus-audrey-trunk-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusAudrey3Gstdavapot.png?v=1609955772 4582268371026 Zamioculcas Zenzi (L) | ZZ Plant Lucky Lucky here is THE perfect roommate. Does kind of his own thing and needs very little attention from you. He grows slowly (but steadily!) and doesn't mind the fact that you totally forgot to water it for two weeks. Lucky is slightly poisonous, so be careful with pets. Lucky for you: he handles himself well in most environments sunshine or shade, nothing rains on his parade! This special variation of the Zamioculcas or ZZ plant is called the Zenzi or Dwarf ZZ. They are a bit harder to find and since we found some we're calling this guy Lucky! Lucky here is Luke's little baby brother and he is just as easy going as his bigger sibling. The biggest difference is the size of the leaves and the compactness of them growing all bunched up together. It's actually just a cute Luke if you think about it! Luke-ing cute Lucky! 21 40 Frequent Low air purifier Anywhere Slightly toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-enzi-l-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ZZZenzi8INjimmy.png?v=1587574340 4431518007378 Stromanthe Triostar (XL) Donna She's a Stromanthe Triostar but listens to the name 'Donna'. Her beautiful striking green, cream white and pink leaves fit her perfectly. She has such a colorful personality. Frankly, the more we get to know her the more we realize she's kind of a hippie. Don't let her looks fool you, she'd love to be protesting the war and light a blunt. 'Make love, not war dude.' If you thought all we had was green, think again! The Calathea Triostar has wonderfully pink and creamy white leaves and yes that is amazing. But what is even more amazing is the fact that she closes those leaves at night! You may have to get used to the rustle! Donna loves the light but keep her away from direct sunlight. Peace and love sister! 25 50 Water regularly Strong air purifying Bright north facing, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/stromanthe-triostar-x http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/stromantheforwebintallboy.png?v=1587574031 4925913825362 Red Anthurium (M) Lanira Lanira is not even a closed book. She’s a sealed vault. She never says anything past a few words. She’s one of those plants who can tell an entire story with just her facial expressions. But she’ll never tell you her own story. The only reason anybody knows her name is because she lost her purse with her I.D once. When you meet her for the first time you might think she’s mute and Lanira likes to keep it that way, so if you could kindly stop talking that would be much appreciated. Be more like Lanira, and observe, just look and listen you know? People do not hide what they don’t know is on show and Lanira sees all! The Anthurium, much like the Philodendron, is a big family of plants and just like all big families, there's one star that shines the brightest. Enter Anthurium Andraenum or if that's to much of a tongue twister; the Flamingo Lily. This beautiful lady is originally found in places like Equador and Columbia but quickly won over the hearts of many plant parents all over the world. She's easy to care for and produces long lasting bright beautiful lily like flowers. Such a beauty! 15 45 https://plantsome.ca/products/red-anthurium-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AnthuriumRed6inpot.png?v=1610570255 4930275606610 Variegated Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (S) Nielson When Nielson was little, he wanted to become a Plantstronaut. He wanted to plant himself on the moon and become the first flying Ficus in the family. He eventually 'branched' out into other interests but when NASA awarded him the medal for top-10 most air purifying plant he got right back into the space thing. He's been making plans to colonize mars. Talk about a giant leap for plantkind! Advanced Plant Parents only! The Benjamina twins Nielson and Wilson are picky plants. It takes some dedication and perseverance to grow and prosper any Ficus, and our Nielson over here is no exception. He loved being babied at his nursery where water came at just the right time and temperature was a blissful 20-something degrees. Get him a warm and cozy spot in bright light, away from direct sunlight and some plant food in summer so you and Nielson can become fast friends. 10 18 Average Strong air purifying Partial shade, no direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once every two years Once every 3-4 weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/variegated-ficus-benjamina-weeping-fig-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusBenjaminaVariegata4inpot.png?v=1610570474 4743521501266 Mammillaria Rhodantha | Pincushion Cactus (L) Spike Spike’s a loner. After years of destroying everything and everyone around him, he’s decided to just do this life thing alone. He’s a tough plant to love, to do so means you have to accept getting hurt. Nobody gets close to him. His spines take care of that, because he is a cactus after all. Spike doesn’t believe in happiness. Only time he’s ever felt close to being happy is when he finally pricked that dog that kept sniffing around in his business. Mammillaria cacti are experts at growing but they need lots of room and space to do this. It would be advised to put a Spike in a large container of some sort, in a place that you don’t mind it taking over. In the summer, water regularly, but be careful and don't overdo it. Just like any other cactus, Spike is prone to root rot which is never a good look on a cactus. In the winter keep him mostly dry and water very sparingly. Fertilize with a a high potassium fertilizer in spring and summer months. 21 45 Very little Not air purifying Bright, direct sunlight Toxic Once every two years Once every two months (spring, summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/mammillaria-rhodantha-pincushion-cactus-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MammilariaRhodantha8inpot.png?v=1609956231 4937368895570 Pitcher Plant Nepenthes (S) Cosette Cosette grows naturally in nutrient poor soil, so no need to feed her. If she gets hungry, she’ll catch something herself (hopefully a mosquito or the spider that’s been side eyeing you.) Water her regularly and prune away dead leaves. Don’t turn your back on her for too long. If you hear a noise that sounds suspiciously like a bored house plant clawing her way out of a tight pot—run. We’ll meet you at the rendezvous point beneath the old oak tree with your new passport. Whatever you do, don’t look back. It’s too late now Cosette is a carnivorous, perennial plant who enjoys sunlight and moist soil. Her goblet-like figure and appealing colours help her attract and trap her prey. She likes youth, vivacity, and—most importantly—gullibility. Good looking, stupid insects are her bread and butter. Cosette lures them in with her charms, makes them feel safe, and kills them with a cocktail of poisonous chemicals. Some say that Cosette was in love once, but that he spurned her for another. Some believe she was born without a conscience. All we know is that other house plants seem boring by comparison. 10 14 constant Low air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Once a year Flies please!

She looks great in pink, smells like a million bucks, cleans the air like nobody's business AND has the attitude to boost. She's still good at what she does too - the last role she played, in 2018, even got her a Palm d'or by the Royal Horticultural Society! There are people who say Carmen might be too old and past her glory days. Sure, she's a little inflexible sometimes and always complains about not getting enough filtered light but don't we all complain sometimes? Sure, her temper can be worse than a 2-year old's, and she can't handle direct sunlight , and if her stress (or water) levels are too high she'll simply refuse to show up on set. But tell you what: name us one Hoyawood diva that isn't difficult.

But it wasn't always like that. After years of grinding away in a cubicle with way too much shade and not enough sun she left corporate life behind her and bought a food truck. Now Ana gets to do what she's always wanted—travel to new places, hang out and sell organic, gluten-free, non-GMO banana bread at local farmer's markets. Her former co-workers say she went bananas but we think Ana is living her best life. You grow girl! The Senecio Radicans is a cute little trailing plant that needs very little care. She doesn't mind your 'oops, I totally forgot to water the plants' attitude and will grow more banana strings at lightning speed. Ana's low maintenance attitude make her perfect for the beginner plant parent. You can expect her leaves to grow fast so don't be affraid to test those new pruning sheers you bought! Ana's a perfect guinea pig to test  that DIY-haircut you were going to give yourself. With Ana, anything grows! 15 18 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Very toxic - careful with pets/kids Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-radicans-string-of-beans-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofBeans6inpot.png?v=1609956346 4766965039186 Monstera Adansonii (XL)Monkey mask Abab If Abab was a person, he'd be an angry short seller who's always yelling profanities into his phone to whoever's on the other line (and just lost a million bucks because of him). We like plant Abab much better, with his glossy green leaves and distinctive fenestrations (a fancy word for holes). But if Abab got his way we’d ship him off to New York and put him in a corner office with a bunch of traders and brokers shouting “Sell, sell, sell!” and hurling insults that would make even some presidents blush. There’s now a rumour going around the Plantsome office that he once tried to sell cuttings of his bigger brother Alfredo. The fact that Eileen outed him is Abab’s deepest regret, that and not being planted before bitcoin was a thing. Abab is a swiss cheese plant with drooping, heart shaped leaves. They're beautiful trailing plants that grow quickly when taken care of properly. You'll find Adansonii's like Abab growing naturally in South and Central America and the West Indies, but Abab never fit in with his siblings. All they could ever agree on was that indirect light is best. For Abab living the fast life on Wall Street is where he really belongs. And you know what, we can't blame him.  I t's a jungle out there! 25 54 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/monstera-adansonii-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MonsteraAdansonii10inpot.png?v=1609956010 4524350013522 Ming Aralia | Polyscias Fruticosa (XL) Moana This Jungle like Polyscias loves the shade and we'll be honest, Moana is a little more demanding than your average plant. She loves to convert carbon monoxide into oxygen for you but does demand some love and attention in return. Polyscias is greek for 'gimme some shade girl!'. You heard it, sunny spots are out-of-the-question for Moana. The Aralia can grow super tall, up to tree height so if you take good care of it you'll have a beautiful centrepiece for your home. We are sad to see her go, she's really one of a kind. *handkisses* Ho-ly-mother-of-exotic-beauties! This tropical princess is called Moana and she's from the Polynesian Islands but now that she's planted her roots in your house, she'll want you to know that she's a demanding girl. Put Moana in a bright spot, but not too bright (no sunlight). In Polynesia this plant is also referred to as the Aralia Ming but we prefer Moana.
