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.

Variegated Dragon Tail Plant, Epipremnum pinnatum variegata - Specimen - SOLD OUT

Epipremnum pinnatum plants are native to Asia and certain pacific islands. Fully mature, they look similar to monsteras with beautiful large split leaves. They’re commonly called Dragon Tail Plants because of the shape of leaves when mature. This is an easy houseplant which does well with bright light and moist, well drained soil. Variegated forms of this plant are pretty uncommon, especially ones this size.

Alocasia lauterbachiana, Elephant Ear - Specimen

By far one of the most interesting looking alocasias with dark leaves which can get up to 2 feet long, sitting at the end of dark, purplish petioles. This unique alocasia from the South Asian region is called the Purple Sword alocasia because of its narrow, upright leaves with reddish undersides. Its perfect shape and wavy leaves makes this plant look almost artificial. These specimens are very large plants, most with multiple plants per pot.

Philodendron goeldii, Thaumatophyllum Spruceanum - Specimen - SOLD OUT

Yup, as you can see from the scientific name, Philodendron Goeldii isn’t actually classified as a Philodendron anymore, but old habits die hard. Originating from the South American jungles, Philodendron Goeldii is often referred to as Finger Leaf Plant because of the gorgeous star-shaped foliage which resembles fingers. The leaves are similar to schefflera plants but it can slowly grow a trunk somewhat like crawling philodendrons such as Selloum. Like most philodendrons they like moist, well drained soil and moderate to bright light and do best with higher than average humidity. This is a neat plant to add to your philodendron collection.

Sansevieria trifasciata 'Jaboa', Snake Plant - Specimen - SOLD OUT

I love the exotic look of this large snake plant. The wide leaves are covered with interesting mottled variegated patterns. This plant is similar to the whale fin sansevieria but gets taller and is actually more impactful in my opinion. It’s a great plant for beginners as it can tolerate almost any light condition with little water requirements. These huge specimens are extremely full, bursting out of the pot and are a must-have for all you Sansevieria collectors. Get ‘em before we split ‘em and make a bunch of your own babies.

Philodendron Renauxii - Specimen A - SOLD OUT

This Brazilian beauty is a lesser known philodendron, but sought after by Aroid and rare plant collectors. It’s a terrestrial philodendron, meaning it’s not a climber, but rather a slow grower which crawls along the ground. The thick paddle-shaped leaves have a light contrasting mid-rib which downs the leaf to the thick supporting petiole. Mature plants can get up to 3 feet tall with leaves that are 2ft long. If you’re looking for something unique and extremely rare, this is it.

Calathea makoyana, Peacock Plant - Specimen - SOLD OUT

Yes, I know the Peacock Calathea isn’t a rare or uncommon plant, but the intention of my Discoveries feature is to offer cool finds, not just rare stuff. I stumbled upon a few of these overgrown specimens at one of my favorite growers. They had been forgotten and left to fend on their own, but look at how they strived! Well I grabbed them knowing someone out there would love to get their hands on one of these massive babies – you just can’t find them at this size to buy. I’ve only got three, so if you don’t want to wait for your Prayer Plant to grow, grab one.

Darryl's Deal of the Day: Swiss Cheese Vine 50% Off

The Swiss Cheese Plant is instantly recognizable with its uniquely shaped leaves featuring multiple oval holes. Botanists theorize the holes allow sun and water to reach the lower leaves, and enable the plant to stand up to strong winds. They love to climb when supported by a trellis or a pole but are equally as beautiful as a trailing plant in a hanging planter. The plant thrives in low light, and does well indoors under fluorescent or LED light.

Philodendron 'Brasil', Heartleaf Philodendron - Specimen, Totem

This South American native is often mistaken for a Pothos. Philodendron Brasil is a climbing vine with bright heart-shaped leaves. It got its name because of the resemblance of the green and yellow striped leaves to the Brazilian flag. This fast growing philodendron thrives with very little care, in almost any light except direct sunlight. These beautiful totems are full and lush, sure to bring life to any corner of your house. Philodendron Brasil is usually found in hanging baskets or small pots, not often are they sold in large totems like this.
