#PlantOfTheWeek :
Calathea ‘Cathedral Windows’

Calathea makoyana, also known as peacock plant or cathedral windows, is a species of plant belonging to the genus Calathea in the family Marantaceae, native to eastern Brazil.

Like other "prayer plants", this plant raises and closes its leaves at night, then opens them up again as dawn breaks. The leaves do have an amazing appearance resembling stained glass, especially when viewed through sun light. These need medium to bright indirect light as they cannot tolerate direct sunlight — their leaves will become dulled and less vibrant. Water with lukewarm water - preferably rainwater, distilled water, or purified water (in that order) to avoid brown spots on the leaves.

We have several varieties of Calathea in stock, but only one ‘ Cathedral Windows’ (6” pot, $24). This week get it for 10% off or free repotting service with purchase 😉

Plant of the Week:

Dieffenbachia‘Camouflage’/ Camouflage Dumbcane

This hard to find Dieffenbachia has some of the most flamboyant foliage of any of the Dumbcanes. The leaves indeed look like camouflaging, and every leaf has a unique coloration. We could stare at this thing for hours.

The common name ‘dumbcane’ comes from the plant’s poisonous calcium oxalate emitted from broken leaves or stems. Keep away from pets, use gloves when pruning, and definitely don’t give these a taste test.

Dieffenbachias need medium to bright indirect light, and moderate watering (let the top 2” of soil go dry then water deeply).

We have just one large and lovely Camouflage in a 14” diameter pot going for $95, but this week get it for 10% off or free repotting service with purchase 😉

We are indeed open today — but for some reason Facebook doesn’t reflect that unless you scroll down to our hours. We hope to have that fixed soon and apologize for any confusion.
And much thanks to the customer that pointed this out to us!

Got a young horticulturalist in the making? Or maybe little one who just likes to create and get a little messy? Terrarium building is a fun and interactive learning activity...perfect for children (and adults alike).

Here we are building a fish tank terrarium with our 3 year old. Be sure to check in for our workshops come springtime 😊

This week’s #PlantoftheWeek is...
Cissus quadralangus/Bone Setter/Veld Grape

The #Bonesetter plant is a #succulent #vine belonging to the family Vitaceae— the quadrangular shape of the stem is where this plant got its species name. In regions of India, #naturalhealers have successfully used this plant to mend skeletal fractures, muscle injuries and sprains. The whole plant is used in most #herbalpreparations. Bonesetter also boasts these medicinal benefits:

-Amenorrhea (absence of me********on) and painful me********on.
-Diarrhea.
-Injuries, muscular pain and sprains.
-Obesity.
-Piles, stomach ailments and ulcer.
-Swelling due to physical injuries.
-Asthma.

Our Bonesetters are in 6” diameter pots going for $30/ea, but this week get ‘em for 10% off or free repotting service with purchase 😉
