Plantsome BC Bol Collection Feed Plantsome BC bol-collection-feed 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 4524341395538 Sansevieria Laurentii | Snake Plant (M) 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). 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 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 22 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=1626471600 4581872140370 Calathea Lancifolia | Rattlesnake (S) 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 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.

This variegated amigo hails all the way from Brazil where he's known far and wide for charming the stalks off all the lady plants (and a few gentlemen, too). He's easy going, pet friendly, and also a Gemini. Do with this what you will and happy planting! 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=1591214519 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 18 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=1618855100 4527641034834 Zamioculcas (M) | 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. 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 Infrequent Low air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-m-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/newzamipot.png?v=1609956543 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. 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-green-prayer-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK03289pot.png?v=1609956300 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.

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.

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 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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier. While all plants do purify your air to an extent, it's significantly less than this green amigo would like to take credit for! Wanna learn more? Read about it here . 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 4700320432210 Scindapsus Pictus 'Argyraeus' | 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 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 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 4704825638994 Monstera Deliciosa (M-6in) | 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.

This pretty lady is called Poppy 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 colour! underneath her leaves! **Polka dot leaf colour could be Pink, White, Red or Multi-colour depending on what's available.

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 28 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=1647535733 4546439708754 Ficus Burgundy | Rubber Tree (S) 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 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 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?

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. Dracaena fragrans ‘Janet Craig’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Janet Craig, in particular, are known for their wide, wavy, dark green leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 10 20 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-compacta-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/dracjanetcraigbabywithpot.png?v=1609955651 4581877842002 Calathea Lancifolia | Rattlesnake (M) 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.

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.

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 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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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.

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=1604348432 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 4566356787282 Epipremnum Aureum | Pothos Gold (M) Amelia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie.

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.

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 4602400899154 Ficus Lyrata Bush (M) | 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, 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!Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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=1587753076 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 4526625292370 Sansevieria Laurentii | Snake Plant (L) 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). 21 60 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-laurentii-snake-plant-l-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaLaurentii8inpot.png?v=1609956405 4567798513746 Senecio Rowleyanus | String of Pearls (S) 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! 10 14 https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-rowleyanus-string-of-pearls http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/4inchstringofpearlspot.png?v=1619048187 4955074330706 Zamioculcas (S) | 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. 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. 10 22 Infrequent Low air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-s-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Zamioculcas_Zamiifolia_4in_pot.png?v=1613001187 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 4568040767570 Alocasia Amazonica | African Mask (S) 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! The Alocasia Amazonica is one of many species of Alocasia (almost 100 unique species!). It's commonly known as an African Mask or Elephant's Ear plant. The dark leaves with striking white veins make it a popular houseplant. Those beautiful leaves can grow to up to 40 cm in length. Alocasia thrive in bright, indirect sunlight - as much as they can get. Like a lot of tropical plants, water is important - the soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. Alocasia can be a challenging plant to care for, but when you get it right, it is incredibly rewarding!Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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. 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 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!

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=1626363485 4564846084178 Sansevieria Zeylanica | Snake Plant (M) Gus Gus is your gateway plant to plant parenthood.

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.

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 17 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=1602796346 4732736864338 Calathea Orbifolia (M) 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.

From mac-and-cheese and poutine to his famous southern-style green beans, Finn is the king of comfort food. Having worked at upscale restaurants around the world, Finn is ready to take on BC's awesome culinary mosaic! So stop cooking alone and let this trouble-free fella be your personal sous-chef! Bon appetite! Finn is known for his long and refined, semi-succulent leaves that look like green beans. Similar to his cousins Zoe and Pablo, this joyful Peperomia Ferreyrae can be cared for with incredible ease. Just be sure to place Finn somewhere he can get bright, indirect sunlight and water his soil evenly when it becomes dry. Do this, and Finn may get so happy he might even 'spill the beans' on his latest recipes.

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=1614819388 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 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 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 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 40 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/iStock-1227341226lowresolive_788146d9-5234-479b-80e9-f4b5a94b9455.jpg?v=1652220481 4941145964626 Philodendron Birkin (S) Xiao Xiao’s star sign is Aquarius (she picked it out herself), which means she’s a visionary with passionate views on social issues. If you zoom in on photos of all the great movements in history -- the stonewall riots, the women’s suffrage movement, the land back protests -- you’ll see a flash of green or a little philodendron with its fist in the air. These are Xiao’s ancestors and she aims to carry on their legacy by planting herself on the right side of history (herstory?). Whatever you believe in, you’ll find a passionate, and photogenic, ally in Xiao. Xiao’s dark green leaves are lined with bright yellow variegation, like streaks of starlight. Fitting, as Xiao brightens any room she enters with her laidback, thoughtful personality. Place her in bright, indirect light and occasionally give her some time in the shade to recharge and reflect. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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! 15 28 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Makoyana6inboule.png?v=1609955490 4586943774802 Phlebodium Aureum | Blue Star Fern (M-6in) 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=1587789329 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 4766976606290 Sansevieria Zeylanica | Snake Plant (S) 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 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 20 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-zeylanica-snake-plant-s-2 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ZeylanicaSnake4inpot.png?v=1599188445 4657167761490 Monstera Deliciosa (XL) | Swiss Cheese 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.

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. 15 26 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 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CoffeeArabica6inpot.png?v=1609955574 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.

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.

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 4949739176018 Pachira Aquatica | Money Tree (S) 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. 13 30 Infrequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot - no direct sunlight Non-Toxic Smaller ones - every year Once a month during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pachira-aquatica-money-tree-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/MoneyTree4inpot.png?v=1612468653 4712243855442 Podocarpus | Buddhist Pine (S) 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. 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 6555010465874 Selenicereus Anthonyanus | Fishbone Cactus (S) Jacques Jacques knows he doesn’t look like a stereotypical cactus. You don’t need to keep bringing it up. He knows that cacti are predominantly leafless but, guess what? Those wavy green things aren’t leaves. They’re flattened stems. And he knows cacti don’t normally look this gobsmackingly gorgeous hanging over a basket but it’s not his fault his flowers are so pretty. And, okay, your average cactus is a big prick compared to Jacques’s harmless, limp exterior, but that doesn't mean he won’t poke your eye out in a fight. So, go ahead, provoke him. Because Jacques is ready to eat some water-soluble cactus fertilizer or throw down...and he’s all out of water-soluble cactus fertilize! Jacques would kick you in the face if it meant he could get a nice spot in some bright, indirect light. Jacques would punch you in the gut (or groin even) for a consistent, biweekly to monthly watering schedule that takes into account his low tolerance for cold water. Jacques would literally burn your house down for monthly doses of fertilizer to encourage healthy growth.

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...and helps her look for the love of her life. 15 18 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Non-Toxic 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 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.

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! Hey you!

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.

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.Hey you!

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.

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 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).

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.

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.

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 4665033457746 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (L) 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.

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 Brasil 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. Hey you!

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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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.

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'.

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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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 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.

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 6660553048146 Begonia Maculata | Angel Wing Polka Dot (S) Adriana When she’s not strutting down the runway in her angel wings, this Brazilian Begonia can be found with a gin soda in hand, relaxing seaside in the Riviera. A style icon through and through, Adriana’s teeny polka dot bikini inspired a generation, and perhaps even a song lyric… you know the one. Though she may not remember your name, or even look up from whichever magazine she’s flipping through, it’s hard not to swoon over Adriana’s elegant glamour and effortlessly beachy waves. She is particular about humidity and being in the (indirect) spotlight, but as long as you keep Adriana’s demands met, she’ll be a model citizen. It’s really no surprise that Adriana loves to be adored. The Begonia Maculata is just one of 2000 different variations in the Begonia species. Could you imagine having that many siblings? What would family dinners be like? Sometimes referred to as a Polka Dot or Angel Wing Begonia, this tropical gal comes with a short list of non-negotiables. Keep her soil moist, her surrounding space humid, prune her leaves twice a year, and be sure to position her in a locale with bright, indirect sunlight. Otherwise, she can get a bit fussy and you’ll need to call her agent. All in all, give Adriana the attention she seeks and this Maculata will look immaculata on or off the catwalk. 10 23 Moderate Low air purifier Shade or partial shade Toxic Once every two years Once every three weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/begonia-maculata-polka-dot-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BegoniaMaculata4inpot.png?v=1626389597 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.

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 Clouseau is suuuper chill. He only needs to be watered once a week and placed in indirect sunlight. Any effort will be highly rewarded because Clouseau 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 Pink Panther. Sheesh, talk about a tongue twister.

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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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 4561389125714 Peperomia Obtusifolia (M) Pablo Pablo, oh Pablo. This variegated amigo hails all the way from Brazil where he's known far and wide for charming the stalks off all the lady plants (and a few gentlemen, too). He's easy going, pet friendly, and also a Gemini. Do with this what you will and happy planting! 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, don't you think? The Obtusifolia plants have fleshy leaves that almost look succulent-like. These ones in particular are of the variegated kind so if spots and stripes of yellow mixed in with greens are your thing, go for a Pablo! 15 27 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PepwithEllis.png?v=1614819402 6582045442130 Microsorum | Kangaroo Fern (S) Miss Frizzle Miss Frizzle has a f(r)ondness for eccentric colors and lizards. Through the gaps in her wavy, messy foliage she observes the world with curiosity and an eagerness for knowledge. There’s a rumor going around that she has supernatural abilities, fueled by the static electricity in her leaves, but it’s only because she’s so good at everything. Miss Frizzle can unicycle, backflip, knows how to drive a school bus (not that we’d ever test that out), and has a strangely specific understanding of the human digestive system. And she does it all without opposable thumbs or a brain. We hate her. Oh wait, that’s not right. No, wait. Yes, it is. We hate her. Miss Frizzle loves assigning homework. Please water her when the top layer of her soil has dried, about once a week. For full marks, put her in partial shade or indirect light. Skip your assignments and Miss Frizzle will be forced call your parents (or she’ll die, which would be sadder and more embarrassing), so be cool and stay in school. 10 27 Frequent Strong Air purifying Low light environments Non-toxic Once a year Reduced strength nutrition https://plantsome.ca/products/microsorum-kangaroo-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/KangarooFern4inpot.png?v=1619198660 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 4524302696530 Spider Plant | Chlorophytum (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-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ChlorophytumComosumVariegatedSpiderPlant4inpot.png?v=1614198678 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 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 4582225313874 Epipremnum Aureum | Pothos Gold (L) Amelia Oh boy, is this a tough cookie.

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 4559739060306 Ficus Lyrata Bush (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, 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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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 20 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/iStock-1340022040cbabyoliveopy.jpg?v=1652220507 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! Like his namesake dolphin, Flip likes to be in a warm bright place but keep him out of direct sunlight! 10 15 https://plantsome.ca/products/senecio-peregrinus-string-of-dolphins http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Dolphininpelle.png?v=1587574283 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. Isn't that lovely! 15 35 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/asplenium-crispy-wave http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/birdsnest2ava.png?v=1587574001 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. (50cm size up to top of hanging basket hanger) Hey you!

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=1605842151 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! Dracaena marginata (or Dracaena reflexa var. angustifolia) is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena marginata are sometimes called “Dragon Trees” because the name Dracaena comes from a Greek word meaning female dragon. Marginata, in particular, are known for their narrow leaves that are edged in red!Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 10 30 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-s-dragon-tree http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaMarginata4inpot.png?v=1609955666 4688650698834 Scindapsus Pictus 'Argyraeus' | 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."

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?! The Alocasia Amazonica Bambino Arrow is one of many species of Alocasia (almost 100 unique species!). It's commonly known as an African Mask or Elephant's Ear plant. The dark leaves with striking white veins make it a popular houseplant. Those beautiful leaves can grow to up to 40 cm in length. Alocasia thrive in bright, indirect sunlight - as much as they can get. Like a lot of tropical plants, water is important - the soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. Alocasia can be a challenging plant to care for, but when you get it right, it is incredibly rewarding! 10 20 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-amazonica-bambino-african-mask-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AlocasiaAmazonicaBambinoArrow4inpot.png?v=1609955248 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 the wonderful Cast Iron Plant! This tropical houseplant, 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. 24 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 4602627719250 Zamioculcas Black Raven (M) | ZZ Plant Dalton All good Westerns have a scene where there's a gunfight between a badass dude dressed head to toe in black with rough-hewn good looks, a glint in his eye and a wicked fast draw and some other guy dressed in beige. 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.

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.

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!

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. 27 120 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 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!

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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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!

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!

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.

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 4559858073682 Ficus Lyrata Trunk (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, 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!

At night, he'll keep the rest of your green amigo's from wandering out in the dark, hanging with the wrong crowd. Watching over the others gets kinda tiring though, so be nice to him and don't stress him out by over-watering. He's got a magic super power which is storing water in his leaves. Save it for a not-so-rainy day, you know! The string of Turtles is a trailing plant with a variegated pattern that makes it look like little turtles are jumping out of its pot. They tolerate lower light conditions but for the best looking turtles, go with bright indirect light. Don't overdo it with the water though, you might think Donatello's little turtle friends love the water but these are actually the semi-succulent type, which means the plant stores water in its leaves. Water only when the top two inches have dried out. Turtle turtle go! 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-prostrata-string-of-turtles-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofTurtles4inpot.png?v=1618028646 4754673107026 Ctenanthe Burle Marx | Prayer plant (M) Vlad Vlad is as tough as tough can get. 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 4614310363218 Nephrolepis Exaltata | Boston Fern (M-6in) 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 4526777466962 Aloe Vera (M) 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 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.

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”. Dracaena surculosa is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena surculosa are known by many names including “Gold Dust” or “Spotted Dracaena” because of their speckled leaves. Dracaena surculosa have smaller leaves than most other Dracaena cultivars.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 10 25 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-gold-dust-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaGoldDust4inpot.png?v=1609955643 4565838987346 Ficus Elastica Burgundy | Rubber Tree (M-6in) Jack If making fresh air would be like weight lifting, Jack would be a world champion weightlifter.

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.

In other words Dwayne looks freakin perfect. Keep him inside and he'll stay fresh as a daisy, lush through the seasons but put don't hesitate to put your Rock Fern outside in spring and summer. As long as your garden/patio isn’t too wet or…stone cold! 10 17 Frequent Low Medium to low light Toxic Every 1-2 years Once a month during Spring & Summer https://plantsome.ca/products/polystichum-tsus-simense-korean-rock-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RockFern4inpot.png?v=1611611336 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=1610487573 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! The Alocasia Amazonica is one of many species of Alocasia (almost 100 unique species!). It's commonly known as an African Mask or Elephant's Ear plant. The dark leaves with striking white veins make it a popular houseplant. Those beautiful leaves can grow to up to 40 cm in length. Alocasia thrive in bright, indirect sunlight - as much as they can get. Like a lot of tropical plants, water is important - the soil in the spring and summer should always be moist - but not soaking wet. Alocasia can be a challenging plant to care for, but when you get it right, it is incredibly rewarding!Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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 Regular Low air purifying Bright light Toxic Once every two to four years Once a month during spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine6inpot.png?v=1609956055 4842677731410 Neon Pothos (L) Aura 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. 21 35 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/neon-pothos-l-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NeonPothos8inpot.png?v=1619666808 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 4785236344914 Scindapsus Pictus | Satin Pothos (L) 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."

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 (hehe) 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. Included in your Terrarium Kit: -   Six different plants in various sizes-   Lava rock for drainage-   Decor stones and moss for decoration-   3L Tropical Plant Mix (soil) 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. 21 30 Infrequent Not air purifying Bright, Indirect to Low Toxicity depends on plants in terrarium Once every 3-4 years None https://plantsome.ca/products/terrarium http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BoristheTerrarium.png?v=1601441431 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 6587295924306 Polyscias Fabian | Aralia stump (M) 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! 15 50 Moderate Light air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Every other month https://plantsome.ca/products/polyscias-fabian-aralia-stump-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FabianAralia6inpot.png?v=1619722580 6538785226834 Platycerium | Staghorn Fern (M-6in) Oscar Oscar’s a grouch. His hobbies are spreading misery, taking naps, and glaring at you through his fronds. Though he’d prefer living in a trash can or mounted to a board (its a thing), he’ll be dissatisfied no matter where you put him. And don’t try to build a relationship with him because he doesn’t want friends but don’t leave him alone because he needs someone to listen to him complain. And don’t bring your pets around him (because he hates your pets) but don’t refuse him a pet of his own. And don’t compliment him but don’t let him forget how much better he is than everyone else. And whatever you do, also consider not doing it. Oscar is a unique plant, with branching leaves that spread out like antlers from their base. His fronds look stunning over the side of a hanging basket, and eclectic when mounted to a board with a piece of sphagnum moss. A lover of trash, Oscar still likes to be bathed for 10-20 minutes when his moss dries and to have his fronds misted while he gripes about all your friends. 15 45 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/platycerium-staghorn-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StaghornFern6inpot.png?v=1614549835 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 23 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=1645337042 4766680940626 Sansevieria Golden 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 15 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-golden-hahnii-birds-nest-snake-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/GoldenHahnii4inpot.png?v=1614194624 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? Dracaena fragrans ‘Lemon Lime’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Lemon Lime, in particular, are known for their neon yellow and green striped leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 15 50 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year 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 4710416023634 Kleinia Petraea | 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.

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 4926001315922 Hoya Australis Grande | Wax Plant (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.

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.

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. Dracaena fragrans ‘Janet Craig’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants.

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.

Originally an immigrant from Holland, Frank became a botanist for the US department of agriculture. It took him on many harrowing adventures! This beautiful and tasty Lemon Meyer plant bears his legacy. Thanks Frank! When life gives you lemons... you must have one of these in your home because that's how you get 'em! The Citrus Meyeri is actually known to be a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin which gives the Meyeri lemon a slightly sweeter taste than what you get with regular lemons. So when life does give you lemons, they better be these sweet tastin Meyeri's.

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.

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 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.

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, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-lauterbachiana-purple-sword-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AlocasiaPurpleSwordinpot.png?v=1609955252 6709888254034 Davallia Fejeensis | Rabbits Foot Fern (S) Armie Rabbit's Foot Ferns have airy foliage that conceals furry, finger-like rhizomes. Like deep, dark secrets, these rhizomes can't stay hidden forever and eventually start to peekk over the sides of the container, fully visible. Armie doesn’t know a thing about dark secrets. He’s just your average, All-American celebrity with an oil-tycoon grandfather. And yes, he likes to look at raw meat from time to time. And yes, he fantasizes about eating other ferns. And yes, he wishes that he owned you. And yes, it is true that maybe, perhaps, he forgot where he was going with this. Just remember how attractive he is, okay? Cannibalism aside, Armie is a great houseplant. He’s easy on the eyes and knows how to drape his lush leaves over the edges of a hanging basket with the right ratio of grace to pizzazz. Mist Armie’s leaves every day and keep his soil slightly moist. Put Armie somewhere bright, so that he gets enough indirect sunlight and so your other plants can see him when he tries to sneak up on them. 10 18 Frequent Moderate air purifying Bright, indirect light Non toxic Every 2 years in spring or summer Every 2-3 weeks in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/davallia-fejeensis-rabbits-foot-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RabbitFootFern4inpot.png?v=1633330433 4944867786834 Guzmania Hope Red | Bromeliad (M) Juan Juan isn't fussy, he's easy going. 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 red 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 42 Moderate low air purifying Bright, indirect light Not toxic Not needed Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/guzmania-hope-red-bromeliad-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RedBromeliad6inpot.png?v=1611943659 6556238839890 Platycerium | Staghorn Fern (S) Oscar Oscar’s a grouch. His hobbies are spreading misery, taking naps, and glaring at you through his fronds. Though he’d prefer living in a trash can or mounted to a board (its a thing), he’ll be dissatisfied no matter where you put him. And don’t try to build a relationship with him because he doesn’t want friends but don’t leave him alone because he needs someone to listen to him complain. And don’t bring your pets around him (because he hates your pets) but don’t refuse him a pet of his own. And don’t compliment him but don’t let him forget how much better he is than everyone else. And whatever you do, also consider not doing it. Oscar is a unique plant, with branching leaves that spread out like antlers from their base. His fronds look stunning over the side of a hanging basket, and eclectic when mounted to a board with a piece of sphagnum moss. A lover of trash, Oscar still likes to be bathed for 10-20 minutes when his moss dries and to have his fronds misted while he gripes about all your friends. 10 20 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/platycerium-staghorn-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StaghornFern4inpot.png?v=1616359554 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. Hey you!

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 all encountered a Phoenix before, sometimes they’re known as a “radiator” because they simply radiate warmth and good vibes. Her constant good mood sometimes annoys her brother Pablo but it’s difficult to stay mad at Phoenix for long. Phoenix is the plant everybody wants to be or have - the very fire of life itself. The Peperomia is traditionally found in the rainforests of Brazil, meaning that in the home they would be best suited to similar conditions - humid with high temperatures. Because of the thick canopy of trees in rainforests that block the light, Peperomia would not enjoy direct sunlight. Try not to overwater and a sign that you messed it up would be black stems and lowering of leaves. So repeat after me: moist not soggy soil please! Moist not soggy! 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/peperomia-obtusifolia-rainbow-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RainbowPeperomiaObtusifolia4inpot.png?v=1619062493 6557770580050 Sansevieria Masoniana | Whale Fin Snake (M) Johanis Johanis is hard to come by. That’s why her friends call her the “rare fin” snake plant. She has wide, dark green leaves with a light green variegation that resembles snakeskin. That’s why her friends call her Johanis the Snake. Johanis has an understated, simple charm that’s sometimes drowned out by the flashiness of the plant world, with all its drama and cutthroat rivalry. Johanis loves the simple things, like drinking tea and reading The Communist Manifesto while she daydreams about the downfall of capitalism and its various systems of oppression. That’s why her friends call her Comrade Johanis. But the rich are safe for now, because Johanis is currently busy on her lifelong passion project: eating the sun. Piece by piece, she will convert its light into chemical energy through the process of cellular respiration and leave our galaxy in utter darkness. That’s why her friends call her Homicidal Johanis The Masoniana Whale Fin Snake Plant prefers bright, indirect light (for now). She’s a succulent so water her sparingly! If you’re lucky, and you take good care of your Johanis, she’ll grow up to four feet tall! Talk about a whale of a plant. Ha! Who doesn’t love a casual plant pun? (Eat the sun, Johanis. Eat it now.) 15 28 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once a year Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-whale-fin-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaMasoniana_WhaleFin_6inpot.png?v=1616520832 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 4618638524498 Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (XXL) 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! *Trunks may come braided or unbraided depending on current inventory.  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-benjamina-weeping-fig-xxl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FicusWeepingTrunk3Gpot.png?v=1609956520 6692445651026 Alocasia Pink Princess | African Mask (S) Magnus Magnus (they/them) isn’t rich. They are wealthy. Rich buys sports cars, yachts and mansions with rooms that nobody even uses. Wealthy does philanthropy and donates buildings to universities for fun. Magnus stopped believing in love a long time ago, to them everything has a price - you just have to find out what that is. They are thick skinned with a heart of fire which is why they're known to some as “The Princess”. There are no living pictures of Magnus, anonymity is their secret power so please take it easy with the insta shots. Their name is only whispered among the 1%. The Alocasia Pink Princess, also known as a hard-to-locate plant, you don't find Magnus, Magnus finds you. Not the other way around. Magnus is also from the tropics and prefers humidity and to sit in a well draining soil. Magnus hates bright light, he’d rather operate his dark dealings in the shadows, away from prying eyes. Magnus is poisonous to animals and humans if ingested and even more so to  enemies plotting their downfall. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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?

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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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...and helps her look for the love of her life. 10 12 Little Low air purifier Bright indirect light Non-toxic Repot when root bound Once every two weeks in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/string-of-hearts-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/StringofHearts4inpot.png?v=1616780811 6560611565650 Ctenanthe Oppenheimer | Prayer plant (S) Mick Mick is weird. Like really weird. He never really knew who he was until he found his people on the planternet. He started dressing up and developed a style he now calls 'nouveau' green. When people asked him why, he’d just smirk and nod - he thought that made him seem mysterious. It actually just made him seem odd. He fell into a habit of walking into rooms and loudly proclaiming “I’m just a whole mood”. The Ctenanthe Oppenheimer is a tropical plant that is related to the Calathea and the Prayer Plant. Mick loves indirect bright light and this helps with his outrageous outfits, making sure everybody can see them. He likes his soil evenly moist, never soggy, and thrives in warm consistent temperatures. Mick is somewhat poisonous and though he is usually listed as non-allergenic, he should be kept away from pets and small children.   And of course - fashion runways. 10 20 Moderate Strong air purifier Shaded or Indirect light Not toxic Once every two years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/ctenanthe-oppenheimer-prayer-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CtenantheOppenheimer4inpot.png?v=1616785440 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 Regular Low air purifying Bright light Toxic Once every two to four years Once a month during spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine8inpot.png?v=1609956058 4774604439634 Philodendron Birkin (M) Xiao Xiao’s star sign is Aquarius (she picked it out herself), which means she’s a visionary with passionate views on social issues. If you zoom in on photos of all the great movements in history -- the stonewall riots, the women’s suffrage movement, the land back protests -- you’ll see a flash of green or a little philodendron with its fist in the air. These are Xiao’s ancestors and she aims to carry on their legacy by planting herself on the right side of history (herstory?). Whatever you believe in, you’ll find a passionate, and photogenic, ally in Xiao. Xiao’s dark green leaves are lined with bright yellow variegation, like streaks of starlight. Fitting, as Xiao brightens any room she enters with her laidback, thoughtful personality. Place her in bright, indirect light and occasionally give her some time in the shade to recharge and reflect.

It doesn’t matter where she is, in a room, in the garden, on a ledge, people always stop to admire and ask “are those real?” Milly’s best friend calls her “one in a million” because there’s no one quite like her. Sure she can be a bit melodramatic but Milly just has that “x” factor about her, it’s like she walks into a room and just purifies it...what a thing of wonder. Oh ferns.... we have a love hate relationship with them and this Button Fern is no exception. Beautiful fronds will unfurl in frond (hehe) of your eyes if you're a good plant parent. If you're a bad plant parent, you'll be met with a loss of leaves like you've never seen before. The horror! Avoiding that means keeping this beauty in high humidity (spraying or misting frequently does help!) and away from direct light. Be sure to keep the soil moist but not dry at all times.

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.

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.

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.

The Calathea Musaica is a bit of a harder find within the Calathea family. Aliza loves playing hard to get but once you've seen her she's hard to forget! She's great with kids and pets, too. Oh my what's not to love here! Aliza is part of a big family of Calatheas raised in the Amazon forest of Brazil.

This family of plants has become quite popular in recent years due to their colourful foliage which is not often seen in pet friendly plants. Calathea like to be in a well light room but without any direct sunlight. They can tolerate lower light conditions which make them ideal for locations a bit further away from your windows. 15 24 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-musaica-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/6inchCalatheaMusaicapot.png?v=1620327855 6574789427282 Succulent Trio - Assorted (S) Jo, Flo & Mo Did you know that succulents are actually not a species of plant? They are a group of plants, grouped together for their ability to store water in leaves and stems which is kind of a superpower in that plant universe! You can bet that these little ones are getting jealous looks when you bring them home! Succulents make great life partners. They keep a firm and fit physique, are perfectly able to care for themselves when left to their own devices for some time, and don't drink much at all! And why pick one, if you can have three #amiright!  This succulent kit will include three succulents* Types of succulents will vary (Plantsome's choice), you can trust us, we'll pick some cute ones for you! 15 15 In spring and summer, bi-weekly Excellent air purifier Bright indirect light Toxic Once every two years Once a month https://plantsome.ca/products/succulent-trio-assorted-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SucculentTrio4in.png?v=1621010821 6557819273298 Calathea Roseopicta Black Dottie (M) 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! 15 28 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaDottie6inpot.png?v=1616523343 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! Dracaena deremensis (or Dracaena fragrans) ‘Lisa’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena deremensis are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Lisa, in particular, is known for her long, glossy, dark green leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and they don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water.Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier. While all plants do purify your air to an extent, it's significantly less than this green amigo would like to take credit for! Wanna learn more?

Though not particularly passionate about much in life, he does look great in black tie and will charm the leaves off of your parents. Just look at his velvety outfit! Whether he’s in your ensuite or your fantasy suite, Mike P.’s just a low maintenance lad that enjoys long walks on the beach, intermittent fasting, and hangin’ with his buds. The TOTAL package, if you ask us. Mike P.’s on a journey to find love and build a connection that lasts. His perfect match is someone who plays hard to get and occasionally leaves him on read… absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? Indigenous to the islands of Dominica and Tobago, this smooth talker likes it when you leaf him alone to do his thing. Fairly low maintenance, the Philodendron Micans will also tolerate most light levels and a forgetful plant parent. But as long as you’re there for the right reasons, Mike P. will grow trails and trails of velvety foliage fit for television stardom. Ideally, he likes his soil moist and his air well-circulated (whatever that means)... Trust us, he’ll thank you for it with the most. dramatic. season. yet. 10 17 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-micans-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronMicans4inPot_ecb40acb-25ba-4451-8186-4bbd1230f73e.png?v=1633899058 6538781458514 Monstera Deliciosa (L) | 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.

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 60 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/PeaceLily8inpot.png?v=1631826466 6757700763730 Scindapsus Pictus Exotica | 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!? It's hard not to mention Miley's pretty spots when you see her. We commend her almost daily when we walk into the office here at Plantsome. She's a stunner and she knows it. I can't help it, they grow on my leaves naturally. She claims. 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."

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 Infrequent Low air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Monthly 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 6721711833170 Microsorum musifolium 'Crocodyllus' | Crocodile Fern (S) 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. 10 18 Regular Great air purifier Indirect light Not toxic Once every year Once every six weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/microsorum-musifolium-crocodyllus-crocodile-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CrocodileFern4inpot.png?v=1633419870 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 37 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-zebrina-elephants-ear-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AlocasiaZebrinaElephantEar4inpot.png?v=1609955258 4828296052818 Ficus Benghalensis | Audrey (M-6in) 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=1605842572 4602373046354 Peace Lily | Spathiphyllum (XL) Lily Lilly has an exotic figure.

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! Hey you!

At Plantsome HQ, Jörmungandr is just another carefree member of our snake family. He doesn’t like to brag about being Thor’s nephew (and arch-nemesisssss), but he will bring it up occasionally when one of his siblings is throwing a hissy fit. Humble beginnings aside, Jörmungandr makes a great starter plant. He thrives in low-light conditions, does not require any plant food, and will forgive you when you forget a watering or two. If you travel a lot for work or, like, have a galaxy to protect or something… Jörmungandr’s the plant for you. The Sansevieria Golden Flame is also known as the snake plant or mother in laws tongue. When it comes to caring for any members of the Sansevieria family, we think it best to have a “set it and forget it” mentality. This popular house plant can be left alone for weeks on end, doesn’t require much sunlight, hates fertilizer and loves to dry out completely between waterings. Just keep Jörmungandr away from your pets as his venom can be a bit poisonous. All in all this African plant is truly a breeze to maintain -  Jörmungandr will purify the heck out of your air, and it’ll almost make you forget about the whole Ragnarok debacle.

Like deep, dark secrets, these rhizomes can't stay hidden forever and eventually start to peekk over the sides of the container, fully visible. Armie doesn’t know a thing about dark secrets. He’s just your average, All-American celebrity with an oil-tycoon grandfather. And yes, he likes to look at raw meat from time to time. And yes, he fantasizes about eating other ferns. And yes, he wishes that he owned you. And yes, it is true that maybe, perhaps, he forgot where he was going with this. Just remember how attractive he is, okay? Cannibalism aside, Armie is a great houseplant. He’s easy on the eyes and knows how to drape his lush leaves over the edges of a hanging basket with the right ratio of grace to pizzazz. Mist Armie’s leaves every day and keep his soil slightly moist. Put Armie somewhere bright, so that he gets enough indirect sunlight and so your other plants can see him when he tries to sneak up on them. 15 27 Frequent Moderate air purifying Bright, indirect light Non toxic Every 2 years in spring or summer Every 2-3 weeks in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/davallia-fejeensis-rabbits-foot-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RabbitsFootFern6inpot.png?v=1613086002 4766682808402 Senecio Rowleyanus | String of Pearls (L) 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.

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 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. Dracaena fragrans ‘Giganta’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Giganta, in particular, are known for their wide, striped, bright green leaves which can reach up to a metre in length!Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water.

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... Tuba 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. Tuba lures them in with her charms, makes them feel safe, and kills them with a cocktail of poisonous chemicals. Some say that Tuba 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 16 constant Low air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Once a year Flies please!

Perhaps you’d even throw around the word “homeless”, if you’re getting technical. Clouseau 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 Clouseau is suuuper chill. He only needs to be watered once a week and placed in indirect sunlight. Any effort will be highly rewarded because Clouseau 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 Pink Panther. Sheesh, talk about a tongue twister.

It quickly became a lifelong friendship and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have him pay us a visit here in Canada! One thing to keep in mind about ol’ Phineas is that he is very particular about high humidity (he loves it) and doesn’t stand for cold drafts or heater vents. He also prefers a hefty drink as soon as the top few inches of his soil feel dry. BTW - given the right amount of light and consistent humidity, Phin’s funky variegation will really start to shine! Phineas is an eternal optimist. To his older sister’s indignation, this green amigo constantly looks on the brighter side of things (which explains his need for bright, filtered light) and takes every moment as it comes. He’s creative, incredibly brainy and known around Plantsome HQ for taking on massively weird projects! All with a big, leafy smile on his triangular-shaped leaves . So just as long as Phineas’ mother is kept outta the loop, he’ll happily help you with building a rocket or fighting a mummy or climbing up the Eiffel Tower… you get the gist! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier. While all plants do purify your air to an extent, it's significantly less than this green amigo would like to take credit for! Wanna learn more?

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 16 Little Light air purifying Direct sunlight Slightly poisonous Once a year Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/crassula-cascading-jade-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CascadingJadeSenecio4inpot.png?v=1612065329 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 23 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/VariegatedWeepingFig4inpot.png?v=1623441416 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 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 6757067948114 Scindapsus Pictus Exotica | 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!? It's hard not to mention Miley's pretty spots when you see her. We commend her almost daily when we walk into the office here at Plantsome. She's a stunner and she knows it. I can't help it, they grow on my leaves naturally. She claims. 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."

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.

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=1614816780 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 35 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/SansevieriaCylindrica6inpot.png?v=1643231266 6724500324434 Anthurium Clarinervium (S) Dora Dora exploradora - all grown up! Although you may know her from her days of adventuring across the land with her pals Boots and Backpack, this green amiga has really blossomed into her own. Not only is she the founder and CEO of her own travel agency, but she’s also an internationally recognized author and podcast host. Go figure! And while a lot has changed since her days of catching Swiper redhanded… She's still just a plant who wears her heart on her sleeve. Want to learn more about how to keep her thriving? Come on, vamonos! The Anthurium Clarinervium plant is truly one of a kind. Its heart shaped leaves and tolerance to medium, indirect light make it one of the trendiest tropical plants to keep in your home. Originally found in Mexico, this unique aroid prefers moist soil and high humidity of at least 50% (or even greater, if possible)! As most plants of this variety, the Anthurium Clarinervium can be susceptible to root rot and yellowing leaves, if overwatered. To prevent this from happening, ensure your potting soil is well draining and cut back on watering once the growing season comes to a close (fall/winter). And one more thing - this houseplant can be mildly toxic if ingested; so keep your fluffy pals well away! 10 17 Moderate Strong Bright indirect light Toxic Every 2-3 years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/anthurium-clarinervium-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/AnthuriumClarinervium4inpot.png?v=1643241791 6724445700178 Philodendron Pink Princess (S) Barb Barb’s favourite drink is a long island iced tea, and that’s probably all you need to know about Barb. That and the fact that she haaates being called Barbie. Recent retiree and former beauty queen, this Florida native has truly lived it all. Don’t take our word for it, either! She’ll gladly tell you all about her time in Vegas with a former US president who we will not name by name or that other time she was almost cast as a star on Baywatch. We get it Barb, you were a total knockout! Philodendrons have always been popular amongst plant parents, and Barb is no exception! This Pink Princess thrives in bright, filtered light, tons of humidity, and a warm environment. It reminds her of home after all! She’s known on the pageant circuit for her intricately shaped leaves and splash of pink. When it comes to her growth, our Barb can be a bit of a (social) climber and wouldn’t mind some support - we recommend a pole for stability (no, really). She told us her love languages are water and words of affirmation - remember that and you two will get along just fine! 13 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-pink-princess-preorder-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronPinkPrincessppp5inpot.png?v=1652479737 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 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 4585454960722 Sansevieria Laurentii Superba | Snake Plant (M) 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). 15 35 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-laurentii-superba-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Snakelaurentiisuperbavictoria.png?v=1609956407 6628624597074 Microsorum | Kangaroo Fern (M) Miss Frizzle Miss Frizzle has a f(r)ondness for eccentric colors and lizards. Through the gaps in her wavy, messy foliage she observes the world with curiosity and an eagerness for knowledge. There’s a rumor going around that she has supernatural abilities, fueled by the static electricity in her leaves, but it’s only because she’s so good at everything. Miss Frizzle can unicycle, backflip, knows how to drive a school bus (not that we’d ever test that out), and has a strangely specific understanding of the human digestive system. And she does it all without opposable thumbs or a brain. We hate her. Oh wait, that’s not right. No, wait. Yes, it is. We hate her. Miss Frizzle loves assigning homework. Please water her when the top layer of her soil has dried, about once a week. For full marks, put her in partial shade or indirect light. Skip your assignments and Miss Frizzle will be forced call your parents (or she’ll die, which would be sadder and more embarrassing), so be cool and stay in school. 15 40 Frequent Strong Air purifying Low light environments Non-toxic Once a year Reduced strength nutrition https://plantsome.ca/products/microsorum-kangaroo-fern-m-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Kangaroofern6inpot_71bd61f9-89e5-4517-98b8-8d7d084ccfe4.png?v=1623353768 6572319408210 Philodendron Moonlight (M) 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!  15 24 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/6inchPhilodendronMoonlightpot.png?v=1618260097 4527640445010 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. 25 60 Infrequent Low air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/zamioculcas-xl-zz-plant http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/zamioculcas_for_web_bigly_black.png?v=1583868239 4510520574034 Philodendron Rojo Congo (XL) Fran Fran is an elite athlete. She's done Kickboxing, Judo, Krav Maga and Karate - 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. Fran has guts, major guts. Do you have what it takes to be her roommate? 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!

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. Juanita is not that girl. Little Juanita here just likes minding her own business tending to her... flower? Anyway...She doesn't need the spotlight (direct sun) and isn't keen on plant food (fertilizer) either. Just keep her in a bright spot somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the window sill where all the other plants live. Gracias! This plant comes with a pretty pot! No need to add a pot to your order! Lala over here has many brothers and sisters but Lala likes to think her star shines the brightest (and don't you dare go read about Juanita because she's just dead wrong!). Lala's also called a flaming sword plant and if that doesn't sound like a super power we don't know what does! She has a beautiful flower that blooms for three to six months...wow, just take us to Lala land already! 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/vriesea-splendens-flaming-sword-s-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/VrieseasplendensFlamingSwordBromeliad4inPotBundle.png?v=1617119690 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 4704835207250 Pigmy Date Palm (XL) Alon Alon is the king of the waves. 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! He keeps telling us... 25 60 Infrequent Strong Bright, indirect light Non-toxic Every 2 years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pigmy-date-palm-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PigmayDatePalm3gpot.png?v=1609956308 4589642350674 Asplenium Hurricane | Birds Nest Fern (M) Sheri Sheri's a designer. You know, one of those creative geniuses that can really go to town on a piece of paper and all she needs is a pencil. Just let her doodle for a bit, you'll see what we mean. We saw one of her doodles being put up for auction a while back. Let's just say that some pretty serious coin was dropped! This pretty Fern definitely puts the 'nest' in birds nest fern with her wild looks and if you're kind to her she may doodle some pretty fronds for you! We love it! The Asplenium Antiquum or Birds Nest Fern is a tropical houseplant that doesn't like to be in the spotlight. They would rather be in lower light conditions (bright, indirect light to low light) away from direct sun. Like most ferns, Birds Nest Ferns are a fan of humidity and moisture. What’s really cool about the rare ‘Hurricane’ variety is how the glossy, bright green fronds grow in a twirling motion, kind of like a hurricane! 15 30 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/asplenium-hurricane-birds-nest-fern-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Birdsnestferncrinklevictoria.png?v=1609955307 6750925127762 Ficus Altissima | Council Tree (S) Gemma The Ficus Yellow Gem, or Ficus Altissima is a beautiful rubber tree that is easy to care for. 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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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! Dracaena marginata (or Dracaena reflexa var. angustifolia) is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena marginata are sometimes called “Dragon Trees” because the name Dracaena comes from a Greek word meaning female dragon. Marginata, in particular, are known for their narrow leaves that are edged in red!Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 25 110 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-marginata-dragon-tree-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DragonTree10in_XL_pot.png?v=1645211426 6691563470930 Hoya Australis Grande | Wax Plant (M) 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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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 25 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 4832154124370 Pilea Involucrata | 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 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 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? Dracaena fragrans ‘Lemon Lime’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Lemon Lime, in particular, are known for their neon yellow and green striped leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants.

No stranger to life in the limelight, Carrie's become a beacon of wisdom to young, impressionable plants - especially when it comes to high fashion, relationships, and anything in between. She has her besties and loves them fiercely, and also has no qualms whatsoever with writing about them in her blog: Stems and the City. Ngl… we’re huge fans! Limited quantities Available - Expected Shipping date: May 12th Other than the fact that Pothos plants are virtually impossible to kill, it’s also pretty neat that they come in so many different varieties and are fast growers. If you have a low light space that you want to turn into a jungle oasis, the Pothos plant is the one for you. Seriously. The Epipremnum Pinnatum will thrive in most indoor lighting conditions and low maintenance when it comes to humidity. Pothos plants do prefer their soil on the moist side, but are verrrrrry drought resistant. Some people refer to Pothos plants as Devil’s Ivy but they’re not a fan of that nickname… 15 26 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-pinnatum-pothos-baltic-blue-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pothos-Baltic-Blue-6in_sesamefranco.png?v=1649195254 6855763492946 Howea Forsteriana | Kentia Palm (L) Howard Howard goes by many names. Commonly referred to as the Kentia Palm, this handsome green amigo is also known as the Thatch Palm or Palm Court Palm (confusing, we know). Officially though, his name is Howea which is derived from his native land of ‘Lord Howe Island’. We think that sounds pretty neat so from now on we'll call him Lord Howard! The Kentia Palm or Howea Forsteriana if you want to get technical, is one that much like other palms, likes his drink. So be sure to provide this tropical plant plenty of water. Weekly in spring and summer and a bit less in fall and winter. Kentia's area quite well suited for indirect light or even areas a bit further away from the window which is a nice change. They are a bit prone however to browning of the leaves which is caused by humidity levels being inadequate. A pebble tray, humidifier can help your Kentia Palm achieve higher humidity and thrive indoors! 21 50 In Spring and Summer weekly Strong air purifier Low light tolerant Not toxic to pets Once every 4 years Bi-weekly https://plantsome.ca/products/howea-forsteriana-kentia-palm-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Kentia-Palm-8in_greymurphy.png?v=1648766665 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.

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! Hey you!

If the answer is no, then you’re in for a real sweet treat. To the dismay of his family, young Richie here (formerly known as Richard III) hung up his royal duties a few years back to pursue his dream of becoming a world renowned pastry chef. Croissants, eclairs, cannoli - you name it! Blueberry Pie is his specialty and if you ask us, we prefer a pastry prince to a stuffy HRH - but nobody asked and that’s okay too I guess… Happy picking! Duke Blueberry bushes (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Duke') are Highbush Blueberries, meaning the shrubs grow tall (up to six feet!) and produce larger berries than their Lowbush cousins. Due to their size, they are a great option for edible landscaping and can be used as hedges when planted in a row. They are big fans of acidic soil, so consider checking the pH of your garden soil before planting. They will produce the most blueberries when in full sun, but can also tolerate partial shade. They are cold hardy plants and can tolerate temps down to about -30 degrees C (brrr!). First thing in springtime, you’ll be treated to delicate, bell-shaped, white flowers that make way for the delicious berries that ripen early in late spring and early summer (yum!). 21 70 https://plantsome.ca/products/vaccinium-corymbosum-highbush-blueberry-duke-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/iStock-1251384557.jpg?v=1649705556 6642568659026 Calathea White Star (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 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! 10 22 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-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaWhiteStar4inpot_ee8e4a0f-9b73-457d-86a7-b2db80fc7694.png?v=1633294830 6608016146514 Dracaena Sanderiana | Ribbon Plant (S) 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. Dracaena sanderiana is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena sanderiana are sometimes called “Ribbon Plants” or “Lucky Bamboo” because of their resemblance to bamboo. Ribbon Plants, in particular, are known for their bright, striped leaves!Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants.

On a warm, sunny island surrounded by lots and lots (and lots) of water, Lahela relaxed, waved in the breeze, and was so bored that her boredom turned into a burning hatred that built into a fiery passion that compounded with each passing second until there was nothing left for her to do but scream in internal rage at the very forces that placed her on that forsaken island in the first place. When we finally found her she was so excited to have company that we couldn’t leave her alone for more than a minute before she burst up, screaming, “Here’s Lahela!” to tell us the same story about the time she saw a cloud that looked like Kanye if she squinted and tilted her head back. Pretty weird right? We’re surprised you’re still reading! Lahela is a beautiful plant, with bright pink bracts that rise from her narrow, arched leaves like she’s popping up to greet you after you’ve spent the day hanging out with your other friends. Pink Quills like Lahela get their nutrients from the air so you need to mist her leaves in addition to watering her soil. She also thrives with physical support. In fact, you probably shouldn’t leave her alone for very long because it brings back bad memories and sends her into a really dark place. Also, don’t put up any pictures of Kanye in your home. Or anyone that looks like Kanye. 10 20 Frequent Low air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Non-toxic Not applicable None https://plantsome.ca/products/tillandsia-wallisia-cyanea-s-pink-quill http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Tillandsiaflowering4inpot.png?v=1612063916 6838647259218 Peperomia Angulata | Funky Frog (S) Hopper Hopper is a big fan of all kinds of hip hop. His all time favourite is hop scotch, but he's always down for a classic game of leap frog. Oh did you think he meant hip hop music? Well, he won't say no if someone puts on California Love, but he'd prefer to listen to that one about his friend Jeremiah, he was a bullfrog (if you didn't know). Peperomia Angulata or Peperomia Funky Frog is one of the toughest Peperomias out there, making it the perfect easy care plant! The brightly striped, green leaves of this tropical houseplant prefer bright, indirect light but are tolerant of low light. They are great in hanging pots because the stems will start to trail. If the trailing stems get too long, prune them for propagation! 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-angulata-funky-frog-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Peperomia-Funky-Frog-4in_blackboule.png?v=1648079168 6784228130898 Senecio Radicans | String of Bananas (S) 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! 10 13 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-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/String-of-Bananas-4in_franco-white.png?v=1645561545 6576422191186 Wasabi Japonica | Japanese horseradish Hatsu Ever heard of a natural hat trick? It’s when a hockey player scores three goals in a row. Wayne Gretzky (some guy) currently holds the record for the most natural hat tricks accomplished by a single player -- but that was before Hatsu came along! She’s got speed. She’s got power. She’s got no legs. And one day she’s going to make Wayne Gretzky look like a preschooler playing hockey with a rubber stick and a wet stone. And, when that day comes, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is going to cry bitter tears of regret as he paces along a stormy shore, remembering the time he let his prejudice get in the way of signing on the greatest hockey player of all time. “Plants don’t play hockey, Hatsu. You’re here to look pretty, freshen my air, and be quiet!” Screw you, Gary Bettman. Screeww yooou. Hatsu is a shade lover and prefers moist soil. Water deeply and spray her leaves to keep them cool, so she’s never allowed to dry out and wilt. If you treat Hatsu well, you’ll be able to enjoy her proposed health benefits, including her antibacterial and anti-inflammatory abilities. If you don’t treat her well, you’ll never get front row tickets to her games, and you certainly won’t get a cut of her sponsorship money. (She might mention you in her memoir, but not in a cool way). 21 38 Frequent Low air purifier Shaded, no direct light Pet friendly Once every two years Once every 3-4 months https://plantsome.ca/products/wasabi-japonica-japanese-horseradish http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/WasabiJaponica8inpot.png?v=1618508164 6542545485906 Sansevieria Futura | Birds Nest Snake Plant (M) 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 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 34 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-futura-birds-nest-snake-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SansevieriaFutura6inpot.png?v=1614884167 4609796178002 Dracaena Marginata (L) | 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! Dracaena marginata (or Dracaena reflexa var. angustifolia) is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena marginata are sometimes called “Dragon Trees” because the name Dracaena comes from a Greek word meaning female dragon. Marginata, in particular, are known for their narrow leaves that are edged in red!Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water.

Well Raphi, we still love you and support your uphill battle. Native to Australia and New Guinea, Raphaela loves to hang out under large canopy covers in the tropics. Don’t we all? In the rainforest, you’ll find her shingling (there it is) up some rather large trees. But here at Plantsome she doesn’t travel without her emotional support board. Whenever we ask her to part ways with it, she shows us the bird every shingle time! The Rhaphidophora Korthalsii, otherwise known as the Shingle Plant, is a climbing plant native to the tropical rainforests of Australia and New Guinea. As an indoor plant, it requires a humid environment, bright indirect light, and well draining soil to avoid root rot. The Shingle Plant is a type of aroid, which means it has aerial roots that allow it to climb up trees, or wooden boards. As far as plant care needs, feed your Shingle plant in the Spring and Summer months using a tropical plant fertilizer and give it some nice bright light to grow. When kept indoors, the Rhaphidophora Korthalsii can grow up to 2 feet tall! 15 32 Moderate Low Medium to bright indirect light Toxic Once every 1-2 years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/rhaphidophora-korthalsii-shingle-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/RhapidophoraKorthalsii6in_FreyaWhite.png?v=1643839909 6786202468434 Chamaedorea Cataractarum | Cat Palm (M) 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! 15 50 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ChamaedoreaCataractarum6inPot.png?v=1640734172 6704207364178 Pellaea Rotundifolia | Button Fern (S) Yoda Old and wise this fern is. Judge him by his size do you? Hmmm? You should not, for his ally is the force. If you see squinting really hard at a watering can, it’s because he’s trying to move it with his mind and water himself, since his apprentice (yes, YOU) obviously forgot. Yoda is very confident in his mental abilities, even though he’s so little, like a baby. Hmmm...baby... Yoda? Sounds kind of freaky. Catch on it wouldn’t. Never think about it again, we will. Even though Yoda is incredibly wise for a button fern, he needs you to take good care of him. Yoda loves humidity and thrives in indirect light or partial shade, but don’t put him too far on the dark side of your house. Water him each time the top layer of his soil has dried, because, even though plant Yoda knows death is a natural part of life, it’ll be another 900 years before he’s ready to become one with the force. 10 16 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/pellaea-rotundifolia-button-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ButtonFern4inpot.png?v=1631749270 6660505337938 Tradescantia Zebrina | Wandering Plant (S) 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 H2O 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. What a great, small plant! 10 13 Average Light Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic Once every year Once every month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-zebrina-wandering-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Tradescantia-Zebrina-4in_pinkfreya.png?v=1648158598 6570520248402 Calathea Ornata Beauty Star (M) Bebe Bebe 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! Bebe is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Pink, Julia, Brooke, Sophia and Susie. In fact, this pretty lady's got something not many plants have, 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 32 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-beauty-star-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaOrnataBeautyStar6inpot.png?v=1617906224 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 6767004418130 Philodendron Brazil (M) 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 Brasil 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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

You know those friends who always have a story up on social media telling you to care more about their worthwhile cause? That’s Ocean for ya in a nutshell and we applaud her philanthropy. Every year for her birthday she asks us to make a sizeable donation to her favourite charity instead of buying a gift, and we're better people for it! Her instagram bio claims that she’s a lover not a fighter but this resilient gal will be the first to throw hands (or stems) before ever backing down from an argument. But forreal, Ocean is someone to keep in your corner and that’s all we have to say about that! Other than the fact that Pothos plants are virtually impossible to kill, it’s also pretty neat that they come in so many different varieties and grow at lightning speed. If you have a dark space that you want to turn into a jungle oasis, the Pothos is your new bff. Seriously. Ocean can hang with most indoor lighting conditions and isn’t too fussy about humidity. She’ll also purify the air in your home, so you can breathe easy breezy. Pothos plants do prefer their soil on the moist side, but are verrrrrry drought resistant. Some people refer to Ocean and her amigos as Devil’s Ivy but she’s not a fan of that nickname (we learned the hard way, see above). 15 25 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-pinnatum-cebu-blue-pothos-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CebuBluePothos6inpot.png?v=1637698769 6557088251986 Pachira Aquatica | Money Tree Stump (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 45 Infrequent Moderately air purifying Bright spot - no direct sunlight Non-Toxic Smaller ones - every year Once a month during summer https://plantsome.ca/products/pachira-aquatica-money-tree-stump-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PachiraAquaticanobraid6inpot.png?v=1616456746 4773002903634 Fittonia Albivenis | White Nerve Plant (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 6862447345746 Strelitzia Nicolai | Bird of Paradise (S) 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! Hey you!

Beautiful flowers, CHECK! Easy to care for plant, CHECK! Need we say more? Ana 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. They are also called Wax Plants and we're not sure we get the reference but anyway, don't they look ah-ma-zing! These beautiful and easy to care for tropical houseplants 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. It is a sight to behold. 15 24 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-australis-lisa-wax-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/hoya4_ochreemily.png?v=1648581793 6853617418322 Alocasia Baginda | Green Dragon Scale (S) Theodora Theodora is part of the wealthy elite whose names you and I will likely never hear and faces we shall never see. It is known that Theodora’s family dates back to the very same pharaohs who ruled over Egypt and built the pyramids. The blood that runs in her veins is older than money itself and unfathomably more powerful. Theodora also goes by “Dragon Scale” due to an abnormally scaly part at the bottom of her spine - it is rumoured she isn’t fully human plant but part something other than this world. The Alocasia Dragon Scale is extremely rare and finding one is something to be proud of in of itself. Theodora has enormous marked and textured leaves which only lend credence to the idea that she is part something non-plant. Theodora thrives in the bright indirect light with a bit of shade thrown in, she particularly enjoys conducting business in hot countries. It would be wise to keep her soil wet and not soggy unless you want to find out more about that dragon side. 10 20 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-baginda-green-dragon-scale-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Alocasia-Baginda-Dragon-Scale-4in_pinkalfie.png?v=1648841993 6735460859986 Tradescantia Nanouk (M) 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.

A style icon through and through, Adriana’s teeny polka dot bikini inspired a generation, and perhaps even a song lyric… you know the one. Though she may not remember your name, or even look up from whichever magazine she’s flipping through, it’s hard not to swoon over Adriana’s elegant glamour and effortlessly beachy waves. She is particular about humidity and being in the (indirect) spotlight, but as long as you keep Adriana’s demands met, she’ll be a model citizen. It’s really no surprise that Adriana loves to be adored. The Begonia Maculata is just one of 2000 different variations in the Begonia species. Could you imagine having that many siblings? What would family dinners be like? Sometimes referred to as a Polka Dot or Angel Wing Begonia, this tropical gal comes with a short list of non-negotiables. Keep her soil moist, her surrounding space humid, prune her leaves twice a year, and be sure to position her in a locale with bright, indirect sunlight. Otherwise, she can get a bit fussy and you’ll need to call her agent. All in all, give Adriana the attention she seeks and this Maculata will look immaculata on or off the catwalk. 15 26 Moderate Low air purifier Shade or partial shade Toxic Once every two years Once every three weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/begonia-maculata-polka-dot-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BegoniaMaculata6inpot.png?v=1622848416 6541783892050 Vriesea Christiane | Flaming Sword (S) Juanita Juanita isn't fussy, he's easy going. 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. Juanita is not that girl. Little Juanita here just likes minding her own business tending to her... flower? Anyway...She doesn't need the spotlight (direct sun) and isn't keen on plant food (fertilizer) either. Just keep her in a bright spot somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the window sill where all the other plants live. Gracias! Juanita over here has many brothers and sisters but Juanita likes to think her star shines the brightest. This Vriesea Splendens is also called a flaming sword plant and if that doesn't sound like a super power we don't know what does! She has a beautiful red flower that blooms for three to six months...wow! Talk about flower power! 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/vriesea-splendens-flaming-sword-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BromeliadVrieseaChristiane4inpot.png?v=1614809645 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.

Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more.

She’s still fond of viewing the occasional vlog, but seeing feet on camera will trigger her fight or flight response. Being a child actress can be hard! Not only does she have to put up with constantly being made into a meme, but people expect her to still be America’s sweetheart. No, she’s not Michael Jackson, and yes, she actually does cuss a little. The Maranta Amagris is a Prayer Plant featuring light green leaves, colourful undersides, and fishbone-like markings. This tropical houseplant prefers medium to bright indirect light, and a whole ton of humidity. Be sure to give her a drink once 2 inches of her soil dries out, and allow the excess water to drain! Marantas are non-toxic as well, making them the purrrfect green companion. 10 14 Regular Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Repot once every year Once a month in spring & summer https://plantsome.ca/products/maranta-amagris-prayer-plant-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Maranta-Amagris-4in_sesamefranco.png?v=1648077524 6831877292114 Laurus Nobilis | Bay Laurel (L) Bae You know the saying you are what you eat, well in the case of the beautiful bay, that means a vitamin rich, anti fatigue, aromatic soup-and-tea-making superfood. That's right, this Bay Laurel is not just for looks, the edible multi-purpose leaves are a must have in every kitchen. Bay laurel plants are easily kept in a pot but can be planted as well. When put directly in soil, these plants can reach heights of up to 40 or even 50 feet tall. Bay laurels need not be kept in moist soil so let the top few inches of your pot dry out before watering again. In your garden this edible plant will grow well in a variety of soils but be sure to provide proper drainage and let the soil dry out somewhat before watering again. Laurus Nobilis is winter hardy up to about -5 degrees celsius. When potted you can bring the plant indoors through winter but be sure to give it a bright spot away from drafts and heat sources. Bay laurel plants are not pet friendly so be careful with your furry friends. 15 40 https://plantsome.ca/products/laurus-nobilis-bay-laurel-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Bay-Laurel-Lifestyle-6in.png?v=1648578497 6757684904018 Philodendron Hastatum | Silver Sword (M) 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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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. Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

He’s known far and wide for his climbing abilities, which have been notoriously exploited by fairy tale princes with god complexes and sparkling teeth. “Rapunzel, Rapunzel? Let down your hair.” More like, “Pip, climb up this tower so Rapunzel can scale down your back. Then I’ll take the girl and the glory.” Doesn’t Pip deserve a palace too? Doesn’t he, at the very least, deserve a parade? Not only would he look amazing hoisted on the shoulders of peasants while they sang his praises, but he’s also been lying to his childhood friends for years about how famous he is and, at some point, they’re going to want to see the statue Prince Charming carved in his honor. And they’re going to want to take pictures. Pip is both lovely and easy-to-care for, making him the ideal plant for beginners and long-time plant enthusiasts. Keep his soil slightly moist and place him in indirect light or shade. If you feel like that’s not enough, or you see his leaves start to wilt, you can mist him directly to keep him chipper. A natural born climber, Pip needs a pole to practice his skills on and to grow strong and tall. But remember, no matter how strong he looks, you should never, ever try to scale Pip. He won’t speak to you again and your mother will be embarrassed. She’ll tell her friends about you and no one will come to your birthday party. Pip will laugh at you while you sit in your kitchen alone, asking your God why he brought you into this world if it was only to suffer. Good luck. 15 22 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/raphiphodora-decursiva-dragons-tail-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/EpipremnumPinnatumDragonTail6inpot.png?v=1621639647 6580694253650 Alocasia Baginda | Silver Dragon (S) Kanye Kanye needs no introduction. Look at him: the alternating color scheme of his leaves, dark green ribs contrasting with a pale green-silver, its a work of art worthy of the Sistine Chapel. Kanye’s music is the voice of a generation and if other people could hear it, and if he had a mouth, he’d win every Grammy in the world -- and then turn them all down because the Grammys suck. But Kanye is no ordinary singing plant. He’s also mother nature’s vessel, and through him she speaks. She says, “Humbly, I would say I’m the most influential person in plant parenthood right now...I’ll say, truthfully.” (And the world was never the same). Ho-ly-mother of leaves! Alocasia Silver Dragon are a rare species of Alocasia and you can see why! Give this green amigo bright, indirect light and a constant 16 degrees celsius or more and wait for his soil to dry a few inches down before you water again. So like...dry but not like dry-dry you know? More like moist but not wet you feel us? Kanye loves loves humidity so spray his leaves whenever you're not busy scrolling through your feed or doing other important work. Hey who said taking care of plants was easy!

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 70 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-orange-bird-of-paradise-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/BirdofParadise10inpot.png?v=1617219878 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. 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! Dracaena deremensis (or Dracaena fragrans) ‘Art Carmen’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena deremensis are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Art Carmen, in particular, is known for their long, glossy, dark green leaves that are edged with yellow.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 25 100 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-deremensis-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaJanetcraigbushdimple.png?v=1587574077 6869829058642 Caladium | Postman Joyner (M) Goku 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 Goku. Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more. Here's to another season of growth! 15 40 Frequent Low air purifier Low light Toxic Every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/caladium-postman-joyner-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK07411.png?v=1651533294 6855783055442 Epipremnum Aureum | Pothos Global Green (M) Dale Picture this: Cruisin’ on yachts, million dollar deals, and a revolving door of beautiful ladies hoping to catch a glimpse at the business tycoon you’ve become. At least, this is what Dale fantasizes about from his dad’s basement once his business goes global. Does it matter that he has literally 0 experience in the music industry besides playing the drums on Rock Band? No… no, it does not, kemosabe. He’s a learn as you go type, and if all else fails, there’s always the family business to fall back on. Now the real question is, are you gonna invest or not? A member of the Epipremnum genus, the Global Green Pothos is a relatively new variety of  Pothos with richly dark leaves and light green marbling. This indoor tropical houseplant is a favourite among many due to its trailing vines. They’re definitely one of the rare houseplants, AKA a must have for Pothos enthusiasts. Despite that, they are an easy care houseplant that will surely liven up your space. They enjoy bright, indirect sunlight, and need water once a few inches of soil dry out.  15 26 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/epipremnum-aureum-pothos-global-green-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pothos-Global-Green-6in_greenboule.png?v=1649189549 6817756250194 Dracaena Fragrans | Mass Cane (XXL) Abdu Ever thought about conquering the tallest free standing peak in the world? Neither have we! But if you ever decide to ascend Mt Kilimanjaro - then Abdu’s the one to guide you there. Born and grown in the sunny climes of Tanzania, Abdu has trained long and hard to become a master of terrain, an expert on the region’s native species, and the king of corny jokes (some people even call him a Corn Plant)! And while he speaks fondly of his many adventures, Abdu’s ready to put down some roots, settle down and have some plant babies of his own. Are you the one for this distinguished gentleman? Serious inquiries only! Dracaena fragrans ‘Massangeana’ (or Mass Cane) is one of many Dracaena cultivars.

It’s no secret that this is a plant with star power. Whether she’s selling out stadiums or rockin’ a hoodie and purple stripes in her hair (or on her leaves) Avril is one punk plant and we love her for it. True to her #gothgirl aesthetic, the Geo Plant has dark glossy leaves which tolerate lower light or partial shade, and thrive in high humidity. If you’re into the whole moody, mysterious vibe - Avril’s the one for you. Looking for some moody indoor plants that are also easy to grow? The jet black foliage on the Geogenanthus Ciliatus makes this plant truly one of a kind. Also known as the Geo Plant, this tropical plant is most recognizable for its dark leaves with a purple or green center midrib. To keep a Geo Plant happy and healthy, ensure it has partial shade, nicely drained soil, and high humidity. Do not let this plant dry out! Natively, Geo Plants grow on the rainforest floors of Ecuador and Peru - and prefer a moist and humid environment!

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. 13 28 Regular Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Not toxic Repot once every year Once a month in spring & summer https://plantsome.ca/products/maranta-kerchoveana-green-prayer-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PrayerPlantGreen5inpot.png?v=1633905808 6851500965970 Strobilanthes Dyeriana | Persian Shield (S) Amir For Amir, nothing is too extra. He lives in luxury, as is his right. With a motto of “work hard, play harder,” Amir not only treats himself to the good life, but everyone around him. Knowing Amir feels like knowing royalty. Thankfully, being in the upper echelons of the business world has only minutely gone to his head. From weekend bottle service to first class international travel, Amir seeks only the best in all aspects of his life. Needless to say—if Amir wants it, he got it. The Strobilanthes Dyeriana, otherwise known as the Persian Shield or Royal Purple Plant is a stunning tropical plant with bright purple metallic/iridescent foliage. Originating in Southeast Asia, the Persian Shield is happiest in dappled sunlight and warm, humid air. It is a relatively easy houseplant, tolerant of most lighting conditions and only requiring water once the top 2 inches of soil dry out. 10 15 Average Average air purifier Low to bright indirect light Mildly irritating Once every 2-3 years Once every 2 weeks in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/strobilanthes-dyeriana-persian-shield-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Strobilanthes-Dyeriana-Persian-Shield-4in_whiteella.png?v=1648598368 6545897062482 Tradescantia Zebrina Variegata (S) | Yellow Inch Plant Billie You might call Billie a vagrant or a variegated vagabond. Perhaps you’d even throw around the word “homeless”, if you’re getting technical. Billie 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. Billie only needs to be watered once a week and placed in indirect sunlight. That's it folks. Sure, a little water here and there but Billie's pretty chill otherwise. Your efforts will be highly rewarded because Billie makes a stunning houseplant, with a wonderful spray of white variegated leaves. He might be on the smaller side but that doesn’t mean he isn’t one daring, dashing, dapper Tradescantia Zebrina. Sheesh, talk about a tongue twister.

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!

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.

Mess with her, and before you know it—your eyes are watering, skin is burning, and you’ll be regretting your decision for a minimum of 4-7 hours afterwards. Caroline is a classic Southern belle in every sense of the word: lovely manners, excellent cook, and scrappy to a fault. Caroline enjoys hosting parties every weekend with 100 of her closest friends, and she won’t let you leave without trying her famous hush puppies. Get on her good side, and you’ll be singing her name till the cows come home. She’s a hot one! The Carolina Reaper is noted as the world’s hottest chili pepper at 1.56 million on the Scoville Heat Unit scale. Please proceed with caution—this one’s not for the faint of heart. We advise against eating whole peppers. Use them in extreme moderation. Seek medical attention if you experience any sudden onset of pain such as severe headaches.  The Carolina Reaper, otherwise known as the Capsicum Chinense, humbly takes the crown of the hottest pepper in the world. This plant can be grown either in a pot or in a garden and enjoys full sun. The peppers themselves are a stout shape with a wrinkled exterior, and can be harvested once they’re fully red. They can grow up to 5 feet tall. We recommend using protective gear (goggles and gloves) while handling, as their oils can burn skin! Proceed with extreme caution. 10 40 https://plantsome.ca/products/capsicum-chinense-carolina-reaper-hot-pepper-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/carolina-reaper-lifestyle-2.png?v=1650579076 4687770386514 Asplenium Crispy Wave | 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 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.

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 4518079856722 Aglaonema Silver Bay | Chinese Evergreen (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!) Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier.

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! Bebe is part of the Calathea family and just as striking as her sisters Pink, Julia, Brooke, Sophia and Susie. In fact, this pretty lady's got something not many plants have, 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!

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-curly-sue-chlorophytum-comosum-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ChlorophytumComosumVariegatedSpiderPlant6inpot.png?v=1613001797 6704159981650 Schefflera Trinette | Umbrella Plant (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 85 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/schefflera-trinette-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/ScheffleraTrinetteXLpot.png?v=1630612524 6609770446930 Variegated Ficus Benjamina | Weeping Fig (M) 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. 15 38 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-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/WeepingFig6inpot.png?v=1621485721 4949731639378 Dracaena Janet Craig Compacta (XL) 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. Dracaena fragrans ‘Janet Craig’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Janet Craig, in particular, are known for their wide, wavy, dark green leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves). Their soil should almost entirely dry in between waterings and don’t require much fertilizer (only once or twice a year), which makes them very low maintenance!If you notice any brown leaf tips, it might be due to mineral buildup from your tap water. If you have particularly hard water or use a water softener, switch to watering with filtered water. 25 65 Infrequent Strong air purifyer Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Every 2 years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/dracaena-janet-craig-compacta-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/DracaenaJanetCraigCompacta10inpot.png?v=1612466872 4941248626770 Philodendron Silver Sword (XL) 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! 27 85 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-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronSilverSword10inpot.png?v=1611626903 4546176483410 Hoya Carnosa Krimson Queen | Wax Plant (M) 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! Hey you! You may have noticed that this plant was once classified as an air purifier. While all plants do purify your air to an extent, it's significantly less than this green amigo would like to take credit for! Wanna learn more?

Looking impeccable with her bouffant and vintage cigarette holder, she looks like she just stepped off the set of Le Quai des Brumes. Sometimes the only indication that she’s been around is a smudge of red lipstick and the scent of Chanel No 5 lingering in the air. Margaux has an air of mystery, and we love that for her. The Lavender Stoechas, otherwise known as the French lavender, is a beautiful bushy plant, perfect for planting outdoors in soil or keeping in a pot. Keep these fragrant flowers in full sun for the most growth. They’re the perfect easy-care addition to your garden as they don’t like a ton of water—give it a drink after planting (enough so that the soil is fully saturated), and be sure to let it fully dry out before watering again. If you’re planting your lavender in a sandy mixture, you’ll need to water more often. 21 35 https://plantsome.ca/products/lavender-stoechas-french-lavender-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK07415.png?v=1651534022 6862448951378 Passiflora Caerulea | Passion Flower Blue (L) Shanelle Talk about some deep roots on this one. The Caerulea Passion Flower plants was kept in gardens centuries ago in Aztec communities. The Passionflower plant has flowers that last for months at a time. It's an easy going plant that can resist fairly harsh winter conditions and various soil types. The beautiful blooms attract bees and butterflies, which at this point is just a really nice bonus. A must-have plant in the garden! There are over 600 different varieties of passionflower plants and while some are said to have medicinal benefits such as treatment against insomnia, they are most popular because they are easy to grow, winter hardy up to -20 degrees celsius and thrive in a variety of light conditions and soils. The beautiful flowers can last for many months and attract insects and butterflies. Be sure to water your passion flower plant infrequently but thoroughly on every occasion and hold back with the fertilizer, this beauty doesn't need much of it at all. Grow the plant potted or planted straight into your garden. Passion flower plants are vining and climbing so be sure to give it something to climb onto. 19 40 https://plantsome.ca/products/passiflora-caerulea-passion-flower-blue-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/passion-flower-blue-lifestyle-2.png?v=1650579167 6840641060946 Hoya Kerrii Variegated | Heartleaf Hoya (S) June Bug Little June Bug is the rope skipping giddy girl on the street corner that's always happy. She's the one jumping through puddles in the rain when most of us are sheltering inside. Her little green heart is just filled with positivity and we love her for it. 10 10 Infrequent Strong Bright, Indirect to Medium Not Toxic Not needed Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-kerrii-variegated-heartleaf-hoya-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hoya-Kerri-Heartleaf-Variegated-4in_blackisaac.png?v=1648158396 6834647334994 Asplenium Hurricane | Birds Nest Fern (S) Sheri Sheri's a designer. You know, one of those creative geniuses that can really go to town on a piece of paper and all she needs is a pencil. Just let her doodle for a bit, you'll see what we mean. We saw one of her doodles being put up for auction a while back. Let's just say that some pretty serious coin was dropped! This pretty Fern definitely puts the 'nest' in birds nest fern with her wild looks and if you're kind to her she may doodle some pretty fronds for you! We love it! The Asplenium Antiquum or Birds Nest Fern is a tropical houseplant that doesn't like to be in the spotlight. They would rather be in lower light conditions (bright, indirect light to low light) away from direct sun. Like most ferns, Birds Nest Ferns are a fan of humidity and moisture. What’s really cool about the rare ‘Hurricane’ variety is how the glossy, bright green fronds grow in a twirling motion, kind of like a hurricane! 10 15 Frequent Strong air purifier Indirect light Pet friendly Once every two years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/asplenium-hurricane-birds-nest-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Asplenium-Hurricane-Birds-Nest-Fern-4in_blackboule.png?v=1647979382 6744275189842 Norfolk Island Pine (S) 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! 10 22 Regular Low air purifying Bright light Toxic Once every two to four years Once a month during spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/norfolk-island-pine-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/NorfolkIslandPine4inpot.png?v=1635454710 6615667146834 Sansevieria Golden Hahnii | Birds Nest Snake Plant (L) 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. 21 32 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-golden-hahnii-birds-nest-snake-plant-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/GoldHahnii8inpot.png?v=1622071208 6594294874194 Caladium | Mt Everest (L) Goku 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 Goku. Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more. Here's to another season of growth! 21 40 Frequent Low air purifier Low light Toxic Every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/caladium-mt-everest-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CaladiumMt.Everest8inpot.png?v=1620419636 6572305645650 Sansevieria Lancia | Snake Plant (XXL) 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 Lancia have beautiful spires that 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. Repot only when his roots are very root bround and about to break his current pot. Who knew plants could be such good communicators? 27 140 Very little Strong air purifying Anywhere Toxic Once every three years Not needed https://plantsome.ca/products/sansevieria-lancia-snake-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/10inchSansevieriaLanciapot.png?v=1618090513 6870823305298 Hemionitis Arifolia | Heart Fern (S) Nancy Nancy is our most musical amigo with a whole lotta heart. She can sing, play the guitar, and if you tossed a kazoo to her, we’re sure she’d even be able to figure that out. Nancy loves her Plantsome family fiercely and will do anything to protect her tribe. Not to brag, but she’s even written songs about us—Siri, play “Alone”. Hemionis Arifolia are tender ferns with heart shaped leaves. Adorable to look at and pet friendly, too! As pretty as she looks, she's not for the faint at...heart. Some TLC is definitely required as ferns crave higher than average humidity levels, warmer room temperatures and prefer filtered water at room temperature. The Heart Fern also does really well in a vivarium or terrarium because of its tendency to thrive in high humidity environments. To increase the humidity you can add a pebble tray under its pot or keep it in your bathroom provided there is enough light. Ferns need only a little fertilizer, once a month is enough. 10 15 Frequent Moderate Bright indirect light Non toxic Every 2 years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hemionitis-arifolia-heart-fern-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hemionitis-Arifolia-Heart-Fern-4in_greenalfie.png?v=1651103662 6644827422802 Jade Pothos (M) Auri There's a dark air to Auri. Contrary to other species in her family (Epipremnum Aureum), Auri 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, Auri 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: Auri 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 Auri 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/jade-pothos-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PothosJade6inpot.png?v=1624920170 6608013590610 Trichocereus Pachanoi | Duo 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 40 Very little Low air purifier Lots of direct light Slightly toxic Once every two years Low nitrogen fertilizer https://plantsome.ca/products/trichocereus-pachanoi-duo-san-pedro-cactus-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/SanPedroCactus2stem8inpot.png?v=1621436148 6541770915922 Dracaena Limelight (XL) Andre Junior Limelight Dracaenas get their name for a reason and, despite popular belief (and science), it’s not the color of their leaves. It’s because they love attention, or “the limelight”. Our Andre here is the biggest attention seeker of all, even though he really doesn't need it. We think it 'stems' (heh) from issues with his father, who he claims was professional wrestler Andre the Giant. While the truth is often subjective, our standby plant therapist agrees that he’s probably just really confused. But there’s no sob story in that, no book deal, no possibility of a memoir directed by, produced by, and starring Andre Jr. So, despite being biologically and chronologically impossible, we’ve agreed to introduce him as the abandoned son of a long dead French wrestler. Contact our publicist for any booking inquiries. Dracaena fragrans ‘Limelight’ is one of many Dracaena cultivars. Commonly, Dracaena fragrans are sometimes called “Corn Plants” because they grow in stalks and have long, wide leaves, similar to corn plants. Limelight, in particular, are known for their wide, neon green leaves.Dracaena are great easy care tropical houseplants. They can tolerate anything from bright, indirect light to low light (keep them out of direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves).

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. 25 60 Average Light air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every two years Once per month (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/coffea-arabica-coffee-plant-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Coffe33Gwebtim.png?v=1587574049 6851446505554 Isolepis Cernua | Fibre Optic Grass (S) Sam Fibre optic grass is a funky little plant that will sit perfectly in those places 'between' your stunning shrubs and trees. We are not saying Sam's not pretty himself, he just fills the voids out so nicely, you know what we mean right Sam? You still here Sam? Sam?! Isolepis cernua or Fibre Optic Grass is an evergreen outdoor plant that produces tiny little silver flowers at the end of their grass like leaves to create an almost fibre optic look. Though the leaves very much look like grass, this is not a grass-type plant. This easy to care for plant works great as filler in large ornamental containers with other plants mixed in or as border edging in gardens. It's to be considered an annual in colder climates but can be brought indoors in a shiny spot in winter. It prefers to be in moist soil at all times and likes to be in full sun to partial sun. As the growth matures it will start to droop gracefully to create a nice full look with upright growth in the the middle, sloping downward further near the edges of the plant. If the plant grows too long and leggy you an simply trim it and the growth will come right back! 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/isolepis-cernua-fibre-optic-grass-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Fibre-Optic-Grass-4in-Lifestyle.png?v=1648593339 6851428548690 Cordyline Australis Red Star | Cabbage Palm (S) Jean Jean's wisdom is undeniable. He knows everything about anything and will tell you all about the meaning of life, but only if you ask. Jean has that je ne sais quoi that makes us feel smarter around the office. To be completely honest, we don't even know why he calls himself Jean, he's not even French! But it's OK, we'll allow it you smart cookie! The Cordyline Red Star is a plant that grows well both as an outdoor plant and inside as a houseplant. Kept outdoors, make sure to provide this bronze-leafed plant a spot with plenty of sun but away from any cold drafts. Cordyline make for excellent border plants and go well in mix containers to fill the space between bigger flowering plants. Cordyline or Cabbage Palm plants are also pet friendly, making them particularly popular versatile plants to keep around. The plant may produce flowers from June to September and likes to be kept in moist soil at all times so be sure to check on watering regularly for the best results. 10 30 https://plantsome.ca/products/cordyline-australis-red-star-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Cordyline-Australis-Red-Star-4in-Lifestyle2.png?v=1648592318 6834096177234 Alocasia Pink Princess | African Mask (M) Magnus Magnus (they/them) isn’t rich. They are wealthy. Rich buys sports cars, yachts and mansions with rooms that nobody even uses. Wealthy does philanthropy and donates buildings to universities for fun. Magnus stopped believing in love a long time ago, to them everything has a price - you just have to find out what that is. They are thick skinned with a heart of fire which is why they're known to some as “The Princess”. There are no living pictures of Magnus, anonymity is their secret power so please take it easy with the insta shots. Their name is only whispered among the 1%. The Alocasia Pink Princess, also known as a hard-to-locate plant, you don't find Magnus, Magnus finds you. Not the other way around. Magnus is also from the tropics and prefers humidity and to sit in well draining soil. Magnus hates bright light, he’d rather operate his dark dealings in the shadows, away from prying eyes. Magnus is poisonous to animals and humans if ingested. And even more poisonous to  enemies plotting their downfall. 15 32 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-pink-princess-african-mask-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Alocasia-Pink-Princess-6in_pinkalfie.png?v=1648082531 6834092441682 Alocasia Reginula | Black Velvet (M) Lil Nas Lil Nas made big ripples in our greenhouse when he slid down our custom silver pole (everybody has one, it’s not weird), into his plot of soil and unfurled his dark, velvety leaves. We were all like, “Oh my god”, and he was like, “No. It’s me, Satan. Didn’t you hear?” And then he serenaded us in a pair of miniature leather boots. It was a beautiful experience and we’ve readjusted our pole so it goes the other way. See you all there. You may live in the dark, we cannot pretend, but that doesn’t mean Lil Nas should. In fact, Lil Nas is quite particular about all aspects of his care. He needs bright but indirect light and likes warm, humid areas and moist (but not wet, but not dry!) soil. Please wait for the top two inches of his soil to dry between waterings and don’t worry about the dancing. That’s part of the package. If you can't keep the humidity levels high enough, be sure to spray his leaves whenever you're not busy scrolling through your insta feed or doing other important work.

Despite the similar name, he is in fact NOT the pro skateboarder Tony Hawk. How many times does he have to say it? Tony’s hair is obviously a shade darker, his eyes a mesmerizing blue, his form more lithe, and his prowess on a skateboard—well, it’s enough to make any man tremble at the thought of facing him at the bowl. Ahem. Anyway. Tony… if you’re seeing this, call me. The Schefflera Arboricola (AKA Umbrella Plant) loves a cozy and consistent environment. Be sure to give this tropical houseplant indirect light—it can withstand bright indirect, all the way to low light conditions! He's not a fan of super wet soil, so let him dry out a bit between refreshments. These plants are fast growers, so don't be afraid to prune him back if he gets a bit leggy. 10 20 Moderate Strong air purifier Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Once or twice a year https://plantsome.ca/products/schefflera-arboricola-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Schefflera-Arboricola-Hawaiian-4in_whitefreya.png?v=1648075219 6660512415826 Alocasia Sarian | African Mask (M) Dixie While you’re here let’s get one thing straight, Alocasia’s are where it is at right now and this gal is as cool as they come.

You don’t need to keep bringing it up. He knows that cacti are predominantly leafless but, guess what? Those wavy green things aren’t leaves. They’re flattened stems. And he knows cacti don’t normally look this gobsmackingly gorgeous hanging over a basket but it’s not his fault his flowers are so pretty. And, okay, your average cactus is a big prick compared to Jacques’s harmless, limp exterior, but that doesn't mean he won’t poke your eye out in a fight. So, go ahead, provoke him. Because Jacques is ready to eat some water-soluble cactus fertilizer or throw down...and he’s all out of water-soluble cactus fertilize! Jacques would kick you in the face if it meant he could get a nice spot in some bright, indirect light. Jacques would punch you in the gut (or groin even) for a consistent, biweekly to monthly watering schedule that takes into account his low tolerance for cold water. Jacques would literally burn your house down for monthly doses of fertilizer to encourage healthy growth. Point is, watch out and download the Plantsome App so none of this has to happen! 15 22 Very little Typically low air purifier Bright, direct light Toxic Every 2-3 years 2-3 times per year https://plantsome.ca/products/selenicereus-anthonyanus-fishbone-cactus-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FishboneCactus6inpot.png?v=1625844776 6644803305554 Sansevieria Silver Flame | Snake Plant (XL) Jörmungandr In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr is a giant sea serpent who grew so large he was able to encircle the Earth and grasp his own tail. At Plantsome HQ, Jörmungandr is just another carefree member of our snake family. He doesn’t like to brag about being Thor’s nephew (and arch-nemesisssss), but he will bring it up occasionally when one of his siblings is throwing a hissy fit. Humble beginnings aside, Jörmungandr makes a great starter plant. He thrives in low-light conditions, does not require any plant food, and will forgive you when you forget a watering or two. If you travel a lot for work or, like, have a galaxy to protect or something… Jörmungandr’s the plant for you. The Sansevieria Silver Flame is also known as the snake plant or mother in laws tongue. When it comes to caring for any members of the Sansevieria family, we think it best to have a “set it and forget it” mentality. This popular house plant can be left alone for weeks on end, doesn’t require much sunlight, hates fertilizer and loves to dry out completely between waterings. Just keep Jörmungandr away from your pets as his venom can be a bit poisonous. All in all this African plant is truly a breeze to maintain -  Jörmungandr will purify the heck out of your air, and it’ll almost make you forget about the whole Ragnarok debacle.

Grace always has a book in her hand, buys fresh flowers from the market, and never ever forgets to write you a birthday card. She is equal parts sophisticated, spiritual, and sharp as a tack. Grace has her sh*t together, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t require attention, in fact, Gardenias need diligent care in order to produce those famed fragrant flowers. Indoor gardenias thrive in 15-20 degree temperatures, moderate to high humidity and bright direct sunlight for at least half the day. Gardenia's are stunning but be careful with pets and kids as the Gardenia plant is toxic. Gardenia are also quite prone to pests so look over their leaves frequently. 25 120 Frequent Moderate Bright, indirect light Toxic Every 2-3 years Every three weeks in the spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/gardenia-standard-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/GardeniaStd10inpot.png?v=1619638997 6571554963538 Alocasia Baginda | Green Dragon Scale (M) Theodora Theodora is part of the wealthy elite whose names you and I will likely never hear and faces we shall never see. It is known that Theodora’s family dates back to the very same pharaohs who ruled over Egypt and built the pyramids. The blood that runs in her veins is older than money itself and unfathomably more powerful. Theodora also goes by “Dragon Scale” due to an abnormally scaly part at the bottom of her spine - it is rumoured she isn’t fully human plant but part something other than this world. Limited Pre Order Quantities. Estimated Shipping May 8th! The Alocasia Dragon Scale is extremely rare and finding one is something to be proud of. Theodora has enormous marked and textured leaves which only lend credence to the idea that she is part something non-plant. Theodora thrives in the bright indirect light with a bit of shade thrown in, she particularly enjoys conducting business in hot countries. It would be wise to keep her soil wet and not soggy unless you want to find out more about that dragon side. 15 23 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, no direct sunlight Toxic!

Thats where we met Goku. Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more. Here's to another season of growth! 21 45 Frequent Low air purifier Low light Toxic Every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/caladium-celebration-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CaladiumCelabration8inpot.png?v=1618428994 6865595859026 Peperomia Polybotrya | Raindrop Peperomia (S) Burt You'll find Burt strumming along on his ukulele asking for the rain to stop. It's not that he doesn't like the rain per se, but he would just like less of it. More of a occasional light shower kind of guy, Burt is. Some say the rain he's singing about is more of an emotional "rain," and he does wear his heart on his s-leaf, so they might be on to something. Either way, if you're looking for an easy-going sidekick with something special, Burt is your guy. 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, don't you think? The Peperomia Polybotrya or Raindrop Peperomia plants have fleshy leaves that almost look succulent-like. Well don't let the name fool you, these easy-care plants are actually a type of succulent and don't need lots of rain (or water) to survive. 10 25 Infrequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-polybotrya-raindrop-peperomia-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Peperomia-Polybotrya-Raindrop-Peperomia-4in_pinkfreya.png?v=1650923797 6854328254546 Hoya Carnosa Krinkle 8 | Wax Plant (M) Earl Earl is that friend that we all have who constantly needs to be rescued out of hairy situations. Earl gets himself in trouble and we get him out of it. Earl likes to live on the edge of the window sill. Don't be surprised if you see one of his vines kreeping ever closer to latch onto the door handle. Mentally he's already left your house, onto another adventure. Careful Earl, just be careful. The Hoya Carnosa Krinkle 8 is a bit of an oddball among the Hoyas. Its oddly crinkled leaves gives it the appearance of being a cross between a Hoya Carnosa and a Hoya Crinkle Curl or Hindu Rope. The unique look is definitely part of the appeal but just wait until you see it bloom! It might take you a while but it is worth the wait. Keep your Hoya Krinkle 8 in a bright spot away from direct sunlight and water only when the top 2 inches of soil have dried out. Hoya's are a type of succulent and will have some leftover water stored in those fleshy leaves which means they need less water. 15 25 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-carnosa-krinkle-8-wax-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/hoya1_ilyah.png?v=1648581501 6854278348882 Hosta Patriot | Plantain Lily (S) Victor The reincarnation of a wealthy Victorian child, Victor is content languishing outside in the garden on an overcast day. He can teach you a thing or two about etiquette, just as his beloved governess, Miss Jessel, taught him. Don’t ask him what makes his foliage grow so exquisitely, or what’s buried underneath. Victor has many secrets. Stare into his soulless eyes long enough, and you just might become one of them. If you're not new to gardening, you will know all about the Hosta. If you are relatively new, let us enlighten you on this amazing perennial. Hosta's were first brought over from the Orient in the early 1700s and have been cultivated in gardens all over North America ever since. There are over 2500 different varieties of Hosta's in a multitude of colours and leaf sizes but the Hosta Patriot is a perennial plant that is considered to be one of the most popular. Its two tone variegated leaves make it stand out in gardens and is an excellent addition to your flowering plants. Plant your Hosta about a foot deep into the soil and give it enough space around the plant to widen and broaden as it matures. Keep the Hosta moist but not wet and be careful with over watering. Once fully grown they are more tolerant to long periods of rain or drought. Your Hosta plant should be considered an annual if it is planted in gardens where winter temperatures typically exceed -6 degrees celsius. 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/hosta-patriot-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hosta-Patriot-4in-lifestyle.png?v=1650914661 6851482878034 Syngonium Podophyllum | Nephthytis Kiwi (S) Jacinda Trivia question of the week: Name a plant that can lead a nation of 5 million one day and headline a music festival the next… If you guessed Jacinda - you’re right! This green amigo uprooted the world with her charisma, optimism, and badass DJ skills - and that’s actually how she ended up here at HQ. We needed a last minute musical guest for our holiday party when one thing led to another and here we are! We still thank our lucky stars that Snoop Dogg dropped out.. Anyways, mega #girlcrush on you Jacinda! Also known as an Arrowhead plant, Syngoniums are known for their pointed or “spade-shaped” leaves. Native to tropical climates this indoor plant likes when its soil is dry and thrives in a humid environment. Perfect for a living room or bright kitchen, ensure your Syngonium kiwi (named for its vibrant green foliage) gets plenty of bright indirect light and water once the soil is about halfway dry. 10 20 Average Average air purifier Low to bright indirect light Toxic Every 1-2 years Twice a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/syngonium-podophyllum-nephthytis-kiwi-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Nephthytis-Kiwi-4in_whitealfie.png?v=1648595303 6848349634642 Caladium Splash of Wine (M) Goku 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.

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!

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.

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.

Terrarium's are hot (heh) these days but we're sure you've never seen anything quite like our big and beautiful Billy! This amazing terrarium is truly a labour of love here at Plantsome.

Closed terrariums are self regulating since no significant amount of moisture can really escape. There is no need for additional watering as long as the soil is slightly moist when you build Billy. 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.   15 20 Infrequent Low Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every 1-2 years Once a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/billy-the-terrarium http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Cutout-of-Billy-terrarium.png?v=1651507203 6874356318290 Citrus Lime Tree (XL) Limo Limo turns club soda, white rum, mint leaves and some sugar into a blissful Mojito like its no big deal.

Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more. Here's to another season of growth! 15 40 https://plantsome.ca/products/caladium-angel-wings-candidum-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Caladium-Candidum-6in-lifestyle.png?v=1651620615 6840640766034 Hoya Kerrii | Heartleaf Hoya (S) June Bug Little June Bug is the rope skipping giddy girl on the street corner that's always happy. She's the one jumping through puddles in the rain when most of us are sheltering inside. Her little green heart is just filled with positivity and we love her for it. June bug is simply Plantsome's cutest. She just destined to melt your heart! This cute plant is also called a Lucky Heart. Well at Plantsome we are definitely lucky that she's here and we'll only let her go if you promise to love her forever! 10 13 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-kerrii-heartleaf-hoya-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hoya-Kerri-Heartleaf-4in_creamella.png?v=1648158325 6834643697746 Alocasia Pink Princess | African Mask (L) Magnus Magnus (they/them) isn’t rich. They are wealthy. Rich buys sports cars, yachts and mansions with rooms that nobody even uses. Wealthy does philanthropy and donates buildings to universities for fun. Magnus stopped believing in love a long time ago, to them everything has a price - you just have to find out what that is. They are thick skinned with a heart of fire which is why they're known to some as “The Princess”. There are no living pictures of Magnus, anonymity is their secret power so please take it easy with the insta shots. Their name is only whispered among the 1%. The Alocasia Pink Princess, also known as a hard-to-locate plant, you don't find Magnus, Magnus finds you. Not the other way around. Magnus is also from the tropics and prefers humidity and to sit in a well draining soil. Magnus hates bright light, he’d rather operate his dark dealings in the shadows, away from prying eyes. Magnus is poisonous to animals and humans if ingested and even more so to  enemies plotting their downfall. 21 40 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-pink-princess-african-mask-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Alocasia-Pink-Princess_whiteboule.png?v=1648082685 6834637209682 Alocasia Portora | Elephants Ear (XL) Horton Horton once told us that “a person’s a person, no matter how small”! And, in the same vein, we think a plant pal’s a plant pal, no matter how tall. Though his grandiose leaves may make you feel like a Who, Horton’s a big softie here at Plantsome HQ. Horton will stick by his friends through thin and through thick, he often frolics in clovers, and rarely gets sick. Simply give your new Horton plenty of light, a nice splash of water, and you’ll both be alright. Alocasia plants, which are also known as Elephant Ear plants, are native to India and Southeast Asia (and the Jungle of Nool, of course). There are multiple varieties of Alocasias which all thrive in bright, indirect light, and high levels of humidity. It’s these conditions that remind these indoor tropical plants of home! We also suggest giving your Alocasia Portora a monthly treatment of organic fertilizer and keeping it far away from your pets - these plants can be toxic if ingested! 25 100 Frequent Light air purifying Bright, indirect light Toxic Once every two years Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/alocasia-portora-elephants-ear-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Alocasia-Portadora-10in_ltgreyisaac.png?v=1648082747 6640656580690 Calathea White Star (L) 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! 21 50 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-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/CalatheaWhiteStar8inpot.png?v=1624458496 6610483216466 Philodendron Imperial Green (S) 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! Keep your Philodendron away from direct sunlight and water about once every ten days to bring those stunning leaves to life! Its an easy recipe and we love it! 10 18 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-imperial-green-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/PhilodendronGreenImperial4inpot.png?v=1621550929 6876325937234 Laurus Nobilis | Bay Laurel (S) Bae You know the saying you are what you eat, well in the case of the beautiful bay, that means a vitamin rich, anti fatigue, aromatic soup-and-tea-making superfood. That's right, this Bay Laurel is not just for looks, the edible multi-purpose leaves are a must have in every kitchen. Bay laurel plants are easily kept in a pot but can be planted as well. When put directly in soil, these plants can reach heights of up to 40 or even 50 feet tall. Bay laurels need not be kept in moist soil so let the top few inches of your pot dry out before watering again. In your garden this edible plant will grow well in a variety of soils but be sure to provide proper drainage and let the soil dry out somewhat before watering again. Laurus Nobilis is winter hardy up to about -5 degrees celsius. When potted you can bring the plant indoors through winter but be sure to give it a bright spot away from drafts and heat sources. Bay laurel plants are not pet friendly so be careful with your furry friends. 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/laurus-nobilis-bay-laurel-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/iStock-1309030622_1.jpg?v=1652496339 6874365755474 Coleus Wall Street (S) Cersei When you ask Cersei what is most important to her in all of Westeros, she’ll answer with 3 things: power, beauty, and family (perhaps a bit excessively). Don’t ask her to recreate her family tree unless you want nausea and a headache. She’s a bit too paranoid for our taste, but she makes up for it by always creating juicy drama for the court to feast upon. 10/10 would vote for Cersei! Coleus are also called Painted Nettle or Poor Man's Croton and simply stunning garden plants to look at. The Coleus is an easy going (and growing) plant that does well both in garden beds and containers. Coleus come in a variety of different colours and shapes and are tolerant to shade or areas of your garden/patio that receive indirect light. Water frequently and keep the soil constantly moist. Coleus do not like winter conditions though and are prone to dying in frost.

Fresh out of the Aveda Institute, Brad will groom each of your hairs with tender love and care. And if it’s beyond saving? Well, that’s what razors are for. We love Brad despite his (sometimes ruthless) critique, but it’s nice to have someone tell it like it is when plant parenthood takes precedence. Despite his constant gum popping, it’s never landed in our hair… and that’s a win in our books. The Ophiopogon Planiscapus Nigrescens, or Black Mondo Grass, AKA Brad, is an awesome addition to any garden with its beautiful purple-black foliage. Low-growing, these tufts spread outwards and make a great base for landscaping projects, or for garden coverage. The Black Mondo Grass is an easy-care garden plant that will do well in full sun or partial shade. They like evenly moist soil, so be sure to water it at least once a week! This plant will form pink blooms in late spring to early summer as well—what more could you ask for?! 20 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/ophiopogon-planiscapus-nigrescens-black-mondo-grass-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Black-Mondo-Grass-8in-lifestyle.png?v=1650311415 6854335234130 Hoya Pubicalyx Splash | Wax Plant (M) 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 having a moment and for good reason! These beautiful and popular indoor tropical houseplants are easy to care for, and can produce stunning flowers, if you are a patient plant parent. 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. It is a sight to behold. 15 23 Moderate Strong air purifying South facing no direct sunlight Not toxic Not needed Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-pubicalyx-splash-wax-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HoyaPubicalyxSplash6in_greenboule.png?v=1648582667 6854275694674 Hosta Dancing Queen (S) Agnetha Where will you find Agnetha on a Friday night? Funny you even have to ask—she will obviously be where they play the right music. You may approach her with a friendly “Hej,” or even a “Goddagens,” but never a “Tja.” Agnetha is our Swedish disco legend who you’ll want to take a chance on in your garden. She’s so iconic that when she suggests you need to revive the bell bottoms, you say “I do, I do, I do, I do, I do.” If you're not new to gardening, you will know all about the Hosta. If you are relatively new, let us enlighten you on this amazing perennial. Hosta's were first brought over from the Orient in the early 1700s and have been cultivated in gardens all over North America ever since. There are over 2500 different varieties of Hosta's in a multitude of colours and leaf sizes but the Hosta Dancing Queen stands out with it's lemon-lime foliage and lavender toned flowers. Plant your Hosta about a foot deep into the soil and give it enough space around the plant to widen and broaden as it matures. Keep the Hosta moist but not wet and be careful with over watering. Once fully grown they are more tolerant to long periods of rain or drought. Your Hosta plant should be considered an annual if it is planted in gardens where winter temperatures typically exceed -6 degrees celsius. 10 35 https://plantsome.ca/products/hosta-dancing-queen-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hosta-Dancing-Queen-4in-lifestyle.png?v=1650915478 6853624201298 Rhaphidophora Tetrasperma | Mini Monstera Ginny (XL) 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. 25 70 Average Strong air purifying Shade Toxic Once every two years Once every two weeks (summer) https://plantsome.ca/products/rhaphidophora-tetrasperma-mini-monstera-ginny-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Rhaphidophora-Tetrasperma-10in_whiteclaude.png?v=1648765969 6853621252178 Alocasia Portora Low Rider (M) Horton Horton once told us that “a person’s a person, no matter how small”!

Although Samwise is most content in the gardens of the Shire, he would walk to the ends of Middle Earth for a friend in need. He is the unsung hero of our tale, but that’s just how he likes it. Too much attention may go to Samwise’s head, and we know what happens then, eh Mr. Frodo? The Syngonium  P odophyllum  is  also referred to as the Arrowhead Plant due to the spade shaped foliage. This  is a tropical houseplant well suited for all indirect lighting conditions . Water this amigo once the soil dries out halfway, and give him high humidity to keep the good times growing!  10 20 Average Average air purifier Low to bright indirect light Toxic Every 1-2 years Twice a month in spring and summer https://plantsome.ca/products/syngonium-podophyllum-nephthytis-merry-maria-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Nephthytis-Merry-Maria-4in_ilyah.png?v=1648596629 6838658695250 Tradescantia Sillamontana White Velvet (S) Goomba Goomba is the botanical embodiment of bravery, resilience, and massive eyebrows. The leader of his mushroom squad, he is on a mission to take over Mushroom Kingdom for his beloved Bowser no matter the cost. Italian plumbers do make him jumpy, but he won’t let that stop him from leading his team across those treacherous pixels. When he’s not battling for land, Goomba’s hobbies include dissipating into nothingness. Ready your scowl, soldier—that’s an order! The Tradescantia Sillamontana White Velvet is a houseplant known by many names: Tradescantia Velvet Hill, Cobweb Spiderwort, Wooly Wandering Jew, White Gossamer Plant, and probably a few other creative names, too! Its bright green leaves are covered in white, wooly hairs which make it soft to the touch. They are a unique easy care indoor plant. Like other types of Tradescantia, the White Velvet prefers bright, indirect light, but can tolerate low light conditions. Water sparingly, they are prone to root rot if overwatered. As they grow, they will start to trail. To keep it more compact and bushy, trim new growth to encourage branching. If you’re lucky, she’ll treat you to some small, purple-pink flowers! 10 12 Moderate Light Bright, Indirect to Medium Toxic Once every year Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-sillamontana-white-velvet-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Tradescantia-Velvet-Hill-4in_greenalfie.png?v=1648158492 6827594219602 Philodendron Imperial Red (XL) Clifford Clifford the Philodendron Imperial Red is ready to be adopted and be your new best friend. He's house trained and all he needs is some water, light, and occasional plant food. If you give him all the love and TLC, he’ll grow, grow, grow! Who knows how big he’ll get! Philodendron erubescens 'Imperial Red' are beautiful, big-leaf tropical houseplants. Huge leaves + easy to care for = plant heaven (in our humble opinion)! The big leaves might require dusting off every now and then to keep them looking fresh. Find a spot for your Philodendron Imperial Red with bright, indirect light (avoid direct sunlight) and water when at least 50% of the soil is dry to bring those stunning leaves to life! 25 65 Infrequent Strong air purifying Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every 2 years Every two weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-imperial-red-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Philodendron-Imperial-Red-10in-_blackboule.png?v=1647627419 6786203517010 Sansevieria Trifasciata Wintergreen | Snake Plant (XL) Viper Daughter of the all powerful Great Master Viper, this green amigo is not one to mess with. POW! Although, to her father’s dismay, she was born without fangs - this didn’t stop Viper from becoming a kung fu master in her own right. “I don’t need to bite to fight!” says Viper - and we’d rather not test that theory… Tolerant to lower light, we often find her lurking in the shadows, always on the cusp of a sneak attack. Or should we say snake attack? The Sansevieria Trifasciata is also known as the snake plant. Similar to ZZ plants and cast iron plants, these green amigos are known to be low maintenance indoor plants that are also tolerant to low light. All slithering aside, the snake plant is also called a 'mother in law's tongue' because of how sharp the tips of its leaves are. Anyway, this African plant is truly an easy to care for plant, which makes it really popular for indoor gardeners.

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! 25 60 Moderate Light air purifier Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every two years Every other month https://plantsome.ca/products/polyscias-fabian-aralia-stump-xl http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FabianAralia8inpot_1e521e22-c20a-47a0-a02c-d831d456642f.png?v=1623532123 6882260254802 Tradescantia Zebrina | Wandering Plant (M-5in) 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 hypnotized! If you're not afraid of some mystique in your home, Sylvie is your girl. What a great, small plant! 13 25 Moderate Light Bright, Indirect to Medium Toxic Once every year Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/tradescantia-zebrina-wandering-plant-m-5in http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/tradescantia-zebrina-5in_blackboule.png?v=1652811637 6880402735186 Hoya Carnosa Crinkle Curl | Hindu Rope (M) 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? Note: current plants are not trailing over pot and a bit smaller than pictured.  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. Hey, no one said this was easy! 15 15 Infrequent Strong Bright, Indirect to Medium Not Toxic Not needed Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-carnosa-crinkle-curl-hindu-rope-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/HoyaCarnosaHinduRope8inpot_088121bf-c7ce-4595-b119-c116ca74311e.png?v=1652390924 6876325707858 Laurus Nobilis | Bay Laurel (M) Bae You know the saying you are what you eat, well in the case of the beautiful bay, that means a vitamin rich, anti fatigue, aromatic soup-and-tea-making superfood. That's right, this Bay Laurel is not just for looks, the edible multi-purpose leaves are a must have in every kitchen. Bay laurel plants are easily kept in a pot but can be planted as well. When put directly in soil, these plants can reach heights of up to 40 or even 50 feet tall. Bay laurels need not be kept in moist soil so let the top few inches of your pot dry out before watering again. In your garden this edible plant will grow well in a variety of soils but be sure to provide proper drainage and let the soil dry out somewhat before watering again. Laurus Nobilis is winter hardy up to about -5 degrees celsius. When potted you can bring the plant indoors through winter but be sure to give it a bright spot away from drafts and heat sources. Bay laurel plants are not pet friendly so be careful with your furry friends. 21 40 https://plantsome.ca/products/laurus-nobilis-bay-laurel-m-1 http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/iStock-909854344.jpg?v=1652205215 6874364739666 Coleus Chartres Street (S) Cersei When you ask Cersei what is most important to her in all of Westeros, she’ll answer with 3 things: power, beauty, and family (perhaps a bit excessively). Don’t ask her to recreate her family tree unless you want nausea and a headache. She’s a bit too paranoid for our taste, but she makes up for it by always creating juicy drama for the court to feast upon. 10/10 would vote for Cersei! Coleus are also called Painted Nettle or Poor Man's Croton and simply stunning garden plants to look at. The Coleus is an easy going (and growing) plant that does well both in garden beds and containers. Coleus come in a variety of different colours and shapes and are tolerant to shade or areas of your garden/patio that receive indirect light. Water frequently and keep the soil constantly moist. Coleus do not like winter conditions though and are prone to dying in frost. A stunning annual that is a great addition to any garden. 10 20 https://plantsome.ca/products/coleus-chartres-street-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Coleus-Chartres-Street-4in-lifestyle2.png?v=1651708660 6870930391122 Philodendron Verrucosum (S) 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. Would you look at those leaves! Philodendron Verrucosum is truly one of the most stunning of its kind. The leaves have a shining, velvety appearance that makes the them almost change colour. The petioles (fancy word for stalk) of the Verrucosum have a fuzzy hairy exterior that just ads to the mystique. Talk about a showstopper! Higher humidity is advised for the best results on your Verrucosum. If you see crispy browning leaves there's a high chance you need to increase your humidity by placing a pebbly tray underneath or a mister near the plant.  10 19 Infrequent Strong air purifying Bright, Indirect to Low Toxic Once every 2 years Every two weeks https://plantsome.ca/products/philodendron-verrucosum-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Philodendron-Verrucosum-4in_sesamefranco.png?v=1652996448 6869776859218 Stromanthe Sanguinea (M) Sia Sia is a magician! Not only can she turn sunshine into oxygen—which doesn’t make for good television—she can also do cool things, like ride motorcycles into the Grand Canyon and levitate between tall buildings. Sia is a one of a kind, generation defining plant. She was even named Sanguinea of the Century by the International Sanguinea Society (who were not available for comment at the time of this write up). The only people who won’t like Sia are people whose friends she might impress with her sick magic tricks. Bippity, boppity, keep track of your boo. While some plant families harbour thousands of family members, others are relatively small. The Stromanthe tropical house plant family is of the latter kind and consists of roughly ten different varieties, of which the Stromanthe Sanguinea is one. Close relatives of prayer plants, Stromanthe plants are native to South America and do well in partial shade or indirect light. They do not tolerate sunlight so stay away from south facing windows. Stromanthe plants do flower from time to time but it's an infrequent sight. Keep her soil moist at all times and fertilize about once a month in spring and summer for the best results.  15 38 https://plantsome.ca/products/stromanthe-sanguinea-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Stromanthe-Sanguinea-6in_whiteella.png?v=1651166637 6869733474386 Phalaris Arundinacea Feesey | Strawberries & Cream Ribbon Grass (M) Blossom You’d never be able to guess that Blossom was made in a lab by equal parts sugar, spice, and everything nice. Though she’s technically only 5, she’s wise beyond her years. Keeping the town safe from Mojo Jojo and being the voice of reason amongst her sisters will do that to a girl. It’s kind of lame how despite her superpowers, her dad keeps bedtime at a strict 8:30. Defeating evil will have to wait until morning. Ornamental ribbon grasses are a great addition to home gardens or patios. The Phalaris arundinacea “Feesey”, otherwise known as the Strawberries and Cream Ribbon Grass, is a variegated grass with blush pink and green foliage. Its dense and upright growth habits make it the perfect filler plant for gardens or planters. While this easy care plant can survive in a variety of conditions, it is considered to be high maintenance due to its invasiveness, and it grows rapidly from its rhizomes. Tolerant to many conditions, ribbon grass does best in full sun to partial shade, and can handle short periods of drought as well as some standing water. The Strawberries and Cream Ribbon Grass produces flowers in late spring to summer. 15 35 https://plantsome.ca/products/phalaris-arundinacea-feesey-strawberries-cream-ribbon-grass-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK07422.png?v=1651534561 6869727019090 Heliotrope (S) Violet Violet is our favourite no-nonsense amigo who is always looking for competition. Whether it’s martial arts or gymnastics, Violet will never fail to boast about her many accomplishments, the most recent being her acquisition of a Golden Ticket. Though her personality is a bit abrasive, she will quickly step in line the moment you mention blueberry pie. Needless to say, she’s off the gum. Heliotrope plants are fragrant and colourful plants that are simply a delight to have around any garden. The deep purple blooms last for quite a while. Kept possibly as a perennial in moderate climates, this plant is a temperate one that is grown typically as an annual due to its inability to survive any frost. Fortunately they are very drought and heat tolerant and will do well in dry but hot climates. This small shrub can grow from 1 to 4 feet high and prefers to be grown out in a sunny spot for the best possible results. If you keep your heliotrope potted, be sure to fertilize once a month in spring and summer. And be careful with pets, as the Heliotrope is known to be highly toxic. 10 15 https://plantsome.ca/products/heliotrope-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK07418.png?v=1651534181 6869695627346 Dianthus Kahori (S) Maisie Move over Emma Stone—Maisie’s the new ray of sunshine on the block. She’s dazzling, energetic, and will charm your socks off (literally… we don’t know where any of our socks have gone). She’s kind of like if a golden retriever was a human, but a plant. We love pulling Maisie into awkward situations to watch her work her magic. One moment everyone is “wow, that’s crazy”-ing, and the next moment, they’re planning their first annual besties trip to Tulum. Thanks, Maisie! We’ll keep ya around. Dianthus Kahori are beautiful flowering plants that produce blooms that last for months at a time. This drought tolerant garden plant produces deep pink flowers of a lovely fragran ce that attracts butterflies. The Dianthus is resistant to deer and best placed in a spot where it receives plenty of sunlight. Water when the soil starts to dry out and place in well draining soil mix for the best results. Dianthus are winter hardy to about -25 degrees celsius.  10 15 https://plantsome.ca/products/dianthus-kahori-s http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/FOK07420.png?v=1651534403 6865596940370 Hoya Pubicalyx | Wax Plant (M) 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 having a moment and for good reason! These beautiful and popular indoor tropical houseplants are easy to care for, and can produce stunning flowers, if you are a patient plant parent. 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. It is a sight to behold. 15 33 Infrequent Strong Bright, Indirect to Medium Not Toxic Not needed Monthly https://plantsome.ca/products/hoya-pubicalyx-wax-plant-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Hoya-Pubicalyx-6in_greyfiona.png?v=1650394979 6858512629842 Peperomia Ferreyrae (M) | Happy Bean Finn Finn's life motto is: "Happy tummy, happy life." From mac-and-cheese and poutine to his famous southern-style green beans, Finn is the king of comfort food. Having worked at upscale restaurants around the world, Finn is ready to take on BC's awesome culinary mosaic! So stop cooking alone and let this trouble-free fella be your personal sous-chef! Bon appetite! Finn is known for his long and refined, semi-succulent leaves that look like green beans. Similar to his cousins Zoe and Pablo, this joyful Peperomia Ferreyrae can be cared for with incredible ease. Just be sure to place Finn somewhere he can get bright, indirect sunlight and water his soil evenly when it becomes dry. Do this, and Finn may get so happy he might even 'spill the beans' on his latest recipes. Yummy! 15 22 Frequent Strong air purifier Bright, no direct sunlight Not toxic Once every three years Once a month in summer https://plantsome.ca/products/peperomia-ferreyrae-m-happy-bean http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Peperomia-Happy-Bean-6in_greygeorge.png?v=1649197180 6853622759506 Pothos Jade Pearl (L) 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). 21 28 Moderate Strong air purifier Low or medium light Toxic Every other year Nitrogen rich fertilizer (monthly) https://plantsome.ca/products/pothos-jade-pearl-l http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Pothos-Jade-Pearl-8in_goldboule.png?v=1648837452 6848359891026 Caladium White Wonder (M) Goku 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 Goku. Goku 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 plant you will set your eyes on! Just look at them leaves! Goku likes spending time at home tinkering in the shade, away from the fanfare of life in the sun - 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. Caladiums are seasonal growers that sprout up in spring and start dropping leaves in fall. But fear not because when kept in dry but warm storage this beauty will grow again next year! Keep yours away from direct light as that will burn the leaves very easily. Once your Caladium has shed its beautiful foliage simply stop watering and let the soil dry completely. The tubers from which the leaves sprout are taking some well deserved rest in fall and winter to get ready for another spring of growth. Begin watering again in spring time 'et voila' your Caladium will sprout up once more. Here's to another season of growth! 17 30 https://plantsome.ca/products/caladium-white-wonder-m http://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0262/7875/6434/products/Caladium-White-Wonder-lifestyle.png?v=1652902208 6848343703634 Caladium Radiance (M) Goku 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.
