Darryl’s Discoveries

These Specimens are Limited-Time/Limited Quantity

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.

Jade Plant Bonsai, Portulacaria afra - Specimen

The jade plant is also called Elephant Bush, because it’s a favorite food of elephants in South Africa, where the plant originates from. They make excellent, low maintenance houseplants. They require very little water and thrive in brightly lit spaces. Jade plants can be grown in lower light areas but they’ll end up stretching a bit. These pretty plants have jade-green leaves and green stems which turn red to brown as they mature. My specimens have been trained and trimmed to beautiful bonsai shapes and are about 3ft tall.

Calathea Setosa, Prayer Plant - Specimen

You’ll get a kick out of this one! Of all the Calatheas out there, this is my favorite. Why? Because in my opinion the Setosa is probably the easiest to care for of all Prayer plants. Calatheas are notorious for being fussy and easy to kill, but the Setosa is actually easy to grow. Just give it ample light and water. Not only are they easy to grow, but they’re gorgeous. The silver-green leaves have dark green veins and burgundy undersides. This upright variety develops long, burgundy stems and can get about 5ft tall, which are about the size of these monstrous specimens!

Sansevieria 'La Rubia' - Specimen

Check out the color of this extremely rare snake plant! La Rubia literally translates to “The Blonde” in English, hence the picture with my trusty blonde sidekick, Kalena. These sansevierias have striking leaves with vivid yellows and dark greens. Each plant is unique with varying amounts of yellows and greens; and each have their unique patterns. This has got to be one of the most attractive sansevierias with its intense color which is sure to brighten any space. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get more of these, so get them while you can!

Ficus Sri Lanka - Specimen

Want something nobody else has? This ficus, a cool hybrid of the Ficus Audrey, has deeply lobed leaves which curl back on themselves for a very distinctive look. The leaves emerge with a slight maroon color, eventually turning green with cream veins. This hybrid is unique in that it features two leaflets on the stem of every leaf. It’s not often I come across a plant I haven’t seen anywhere else before, so you know it’s gotta be special.

Hoya pubicalyx splash - Specimen, Totem

Native to Australia and Eastern Asia, this bushy Hoya has white specks on its foliage (hence the name). This cultivar has elongated leaves and is a vigorous grower. It produces gorgeous dense white to dark pink flower clusters. Hoyas are normally sold as hang baskets, but these poles are really unique and impressive. These are very mature plants which have been meticulously trained onto the totems.

Alocasia 'Metalhead'

Alocasia Metalhead is a relatively new hybrid with beautiful leaves. It gets the name metalhead because of the cool metallic appearance of the leaves which are green on top with purplish iridescent undersides. These plants like high humidity and are a wonderful choice for bathrooms. I have about 12 of these that are almost too big to for the pots that they’re in. We need to move them out asap so we’re offering them at a ridiculously low price.

Monstera Albo Rooted Cutting

This beautiful cultivar of monstera deliciosa features white variegation which can range from small splotches to entire white leaves. It is slower growing and harder to propagate than regular monsteras but is easy to grow. As they grow, variegation increases. These cuttings were rooted for me by Plantics. Each and are established, healthy plants with at least 3 leaves.
