PERMITTED INTO WA AS OF 16 APRIL 2019 YAY!

Gorgeous large love heart shaped leaves when mature that can reach well over 30cm in diameter with lighter white coloured veins, this one is highly recommended for the beginner.

A beautiful evergreen species of Calathea with amazing leaf patterns resembling tiny mosaics. A relatively easy plant to care for but do not allow it to dry out.

Alocasia macrorrhizos -SMALL

Scindapasus pictus, variety "Exotica" | Satin Pothos
This is one of two varieties of this plant that Home of Houseplant sells, the second variety is Argyraeus. If you are looking for a trailing type plant, similar in growth habit to a devils ivy, but a lot thicker (denser) and perhaps more unusual in terms of appearance, then this one is for you. Thick, velvet to the touch leaves that exhibit an unusual "blistered" type appearance, which are attributable to trapped tiny air pockets rather than variegation. To maintain the appearance of this plant, it need to be exposed to bright, indirect light. I particularly love the fact that...

Oxalis triangularis, commonly called 'purple shamrock' or 'false shamrock' due to its triangular leaves of deep purple, is a very good houseplant for the beginner This plant is photophilic, which means that when the light at the end of the day begins to reduce, the foliage of this plant folds up for the night, re-opening again in the morning.

Philodendron Prince of Orange
Philodendron ‘Prince of Orange” is a hybrid, with a light green to yellow foliage. Unlike other philodendrons that are climbers, this one is self heading, which means the large leaves grow from the centre base. The older leaves (which can reach lengths of close to 40 cm when mature) eventually fall away, making room for newer growth to take their place. Prince of Orange leaves start out a bright copper like colour, but change to a shade of green as they mature. Each plant measure approx 25cm in height and 35 cm in width. The plant will be shipped bare...
Calathea Fusion White | Calathea Leitzei
Fusion white is characterised by unique showy green, light green and white marked and marbled variegation. The purple undersides add a finishing depth to this marvel. Avoid direct sunlight, this one is not for the beginner, as are most calatheas. Too much water and it will die, too little, same result. Keep the humidity up to this one as she is super sensitive. Our tip is to keep soil moist, never drench or allow soil to dry out completely. Each plant measures approximately 8cm in height and approx 15cm in diameter.
