Welcome to my collection of unique plants from the remote corners of our nurseries. I regularly stumble upon some amazing finds – specimens you’ve probably not seen before, and won’t find anywhere else. I’m excited to share my discoveries.

Don’t take too long to decide which you want – these beauties go quickly, and they are first-come first-served. We’re constantly adding new plants, so check back each week to see what’s new.

Philodendron ``Bob Cee``

This rare hybrid by the late legendary Bob Cee is a stunning plant known for its distinctive foliage and compact growth habit. The large pinnate leaves are very long, glossy and highly segmented. They feature a beautiful blend of green and yellow tones, making it an eye-catching addition to any indoor space. Bob Cee is a relatively low-maintenance plant, thriving in moderate to bright indirect light and requiring infrequent watering. This philodendron variety is highly sought after by plant enthusiasts due to its unique shape, striking appearance and ease of care.


Syngonium auritum

Introducing the Syngonium auritum, or as we affectionately call it, the ``Earleaf Arrowhead Vine``! This charming plant is like the cool, laid-back friend in your botanical squad, effortlessly bringing a touch of greenery and style to any space.

Picture this: lush, arrowhead-shaped leaves with a subtle hint of ear-like lobes at the base, hence the fitting name ``auritum`` which means ``having ears`` in Latin. These leaves are a delightful shade of green, with each one showcasing unique patterns of veining that add to its allure. It's like Mother Nature herself took out her paintbrush and went to town!


Variegated Crinum Lily

Crinum Asiaticum, or Crinum Lily, are large flowering plants with very fragrant white flowers which grow directly from the base. The variegated version is also called “Striped Bengal Lily”. Variegated crinum lilies are very hard to find and even more striking than the green with long, white streaks running the length of the leaves.


Oversized Whale Fin

Nicknamed the Whale Fin, the Sansevieria Masoniana features uniquely shaped paddle-like leaves. Though slow growing, the Whale Fin can reach a truly impressive size compared to other members of the genus. This rare form of the popular Whale Fin Sansevieria is defined by yellow stripes of varying thicknesses and intensities. These are part of my Discoveries because of the sheer size of their leaves.


Mystery Anthurium

Step right up, plant enthusiasts, and behold the enigmatic marvel that is the Mystery Anthurium! Nestled among the verdant wonders of our botanical collection, this elusive specimen is the crown jewel of intrigue. Picture this: glossy, heart-shaped leaves with a hint of mystery veining through each delicate edge.

Now, let's talk origins. Where does this bewitching beauty come from? Well, that's the million-dollar question! Our team of botanical detectives has scoured the globe, but the Mystery Anthurium remains shrouded in secrecy. Some say it hails from the depths of a hidden rainforest, while others whisper tales of it being a cosmic creation from another world. Whatever its origin, one thing's for sure: this plant is as rare as a four-leaf clover on a unicorn's back!
