Adonis's survival guide

Lord of the seven seas

Adonis is a Filipino name meaning “extremely good looking” and “lord”. Adonis thinks Adonis embodies both these qualities perfectly. He sees himself sailing the Pacific with the wind in his leaves: King of the Ocean, Lord of the Seas. He’s a swashbuckling pirate at heart, rescuing damsels in distress and sword fighting bad guys. Anger him and he’ll challenge you to a midnight duel. (This is, sadly, why we’ve stopped hiring interns. Rest in peace, Steven.)

What makes Adonis so special

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.
