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?

How to care for Isabella
Isabella grew up in the Amazon forests of Brazil and the Colombian Jungle. She's a Calathea and those of you with experience caring for one already know: her beauty comes at a price! If you do so much as look at her the wrong way her leaves will turn yellow, brown and crispy! Keep her in low to medium light and provide this needy green amiga with some filtered water if you can. Much obliged!

Got a gift card for my birthday in the gift box (Fred the air plant was much larger than expected!) and after much though and deliberation given how large their assortment is, chose three plants to order. All three arrived earlier than expected and in fairly good condition, in very well planned packaging that even included a heat pack. They were a bit smushed but they seemed healthy - no pests - and are doing well now. The only problem I had was with just how full the pots were which made them a bit difficult to transport and water especially since they were pretty large given their pot size; definitely have to repot them within the year. Oh and the ceramic pot I ordered as well came and looks very cute! It's a touch small for their nursery pots, they fit inside but with a bit of a lip over the top, but otherwise look great. Definitely would recommend and plan on buying more in the future :D

I ordered 2 plants in late January 2022 which were posted to me in the Okanagan. They arrived within a couple days with a heat pack that was still emitting heat. They were well packed and look healthy. Thanks for the gift of green in the dark of winter!

So stoked on our order! It came in quick, in great conditions and the plants are lovely. They also use cardboard and brown paper, which is great! There was no plastic in the packaging. They even added 2 succulents as a gift in our order. Kelsi, one of their staff member even reached out to me to make sure I didn't make a mistake because not all the pots I ordered fit the plants I ordered (it was for some plants that I already owned, but how sweet?!) First time we purchased for Plantsome and definitely not the last. Great experience!!
