Plants and packaging.
With our state of the art packaging we can ensure that your new plant arrives in style. Before leaving, all plants are inspected, watered and pruned if necessary. Your new plant is bagged to keep the soil moist and to ensure that the soil stays in the pot not loose in the box. Then your plants are tissue, kraft paper wrapped or bagged and secured in place with natural biodegradable peanuts, you will be pleased.
Pot and plant size.
All plants for sale will vary in size, color, and leaf pattern. In the spring, plants are often smaller than plants shipped in the fall. Plants designated with a sku ending in -4, -6 or -2g will arrive in a standard 4 inch, 6 inch or 8 inch round growers pot respectively. Our new, reusable, recyclable deep pots are 8 inches deep and 3×3 inches in width. Products growing in these pots are easy to transplant and allow for deeper roots and faster growth, they are designated with a sku ending in -8, most of these often come with a 36″ totem. (Note: The item sku number can be found just below the buy button.) The color and style of these pots may vary. If we are out of a particular size item, we may ship a larger size at no additional charge. You can see the various pot sizes and actual plants ready to ship below.
Before you plant outdoors.
Here at the nursery, plants are grown under 20-40% shade cloth. If you plant directly in full sun you may experience leaf burn. It is best to acclimate this plant to its environment by keeping it outside and slowly moving it into a sunny area over a week or so to avoid stress though most vining tropicals do require at least partial shade. Please note: Plants growing here in our conservatory are grown in a natural, humid, rainforest-like environment with little to no pesticides. Though it seldom occurs, leaves may have spotting, folds, or even a bite mark or two. This is only natural. See our planting guide.
