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.

Ficus Altissima – SOLD OUT

Botanical Name: Ficus Elastica ‘Altissima’

Ficus Altissima, or Asian Council Tree, is an eye-catching tree with lemon-lime variegation. This striking cultivar is easy to keep as a containerized plant indoor, in the patio or in a tropical garden. The crisp variegation and pale veins of this ficus is creates a lively and bright atmosphere. I have only 2 left of these beautiful Altissimas overgrown in 6” pots that are about 2 ft tall.

Size:About 2ft in a 6” pot

Golden Hawaiian Pothos – 2ft Totem Pole

Botanical Name: Epipremnum aureum

Golden pothos is one of the quintessential indoor foliage plants. Their bright colors, robust growth habit and never die attitude make it a must have for beginner and veteran plant parents alike. The bright yellow variegated leaves are typically about 4” long but left to climb up a tree or pole they can get up to 2.5ft in length! Pothos are climbers, attaching themselves to poles, walls or anything within reach of their roots; in fact, its genus comes from the Greek “epi” meaning upon and “premnon” meaning a trunk. These lush totems will add a tropical touch of sunshine to any space.

Victoria Bird’s Nest Fern

Botanical Name: Asplenium antiquum ‘Victoria’

This attractive fern differentiates itself from its other bird’s nest cousins with its distinctive ruffled leaf edges. In the wild they can be found in temperate Eastern Asia on tree trunks, rocks, and deep under-canopy shade. While it is endangered in its natural habitat, it’s well established and cultivated commercially. They can reach up to 36” in height and width. Bright green blade-like leaves with a firm center rib and uniform width extend upward from the tight root mass. Victoria ferns are perfect additions to your tropical or Asian urbanscape and garden. These huge specimens are like 5 times the size you’d normally find, giving you instant impact!

Pearls & Jade Pothos – 4ft Totem Pole

Botanical Name: Epipremnum aureum ‘Pearls & Jade’

Pearls & Jade is an interesting mutation of Pothos Marble Queen. It has much smaller leaves (2-3”) and heavier variegation than other pothos. The variegation is a mix of whites, grays and greens which combine to form beautiful eye-catching patterns. Possibly because of its heavy variegation it’s a little more prone to fungal issues, but keeping it less moist than other pothos circumvents this problem. Pearls & Jade does well as a trailing shelf plant, hanging basket or totem pole. Its bold, bright foliage and distinctive look really makes this plant stand out in a crowd.

Swiss Cheese Vine – 6ft Totem Pole – SOLD OUT

Botanical Name: Monstera adansonii

So I have to admit these monsters were intimidating when I first found them – they were HUGE and I wasn’t sure I would be able to ship them. 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 (6ft pole in this case!). The plant thrives in low light, and does well indoors under fluorescent or LED light.

Use this giant plant as a jaw dropping accent or chop it up into a million babies and give me competition.

Size:6ft in a 14” pot

Philodendron ‘Bloody Mary’ – 2ft Totem Pole

@bellanaija14 had me searching the ends of the earth, risking my life through the mosquito and gator infested jungles, just to find this for her. But it was worth the effort 😁. This beautiful philodendron is hard to find and highly sought after. Thick burgundy stems hold beautiful, glossy green leaves – some of which are touched with shades of maroon. It is a fast but dense grower, easily climbing a support and covering with thick tropical foliage. The name Bloody Mary is from the red flesh and blood-like liquid it produces when cut. This rare plant is a spectacular addition to any houseplant collection.

Silver Satin Pothos – 4ft Totem Pole

Botanical Name: Scindapsus pictus ‘Silver Satin’

Although so named, Silver Satin isn’t really a Pothos or Philodendron. A member of the Scindapsus species, they’re originally from Asia and get the name Pictus (meaning painted) because of the variegation on its leaves which look like paint splashes. The thick, velvety leaves and stems are reminiscent of a succulent. An easy to care for plant, it requires very little water or attention. I love the exotic appearance of this plant with its unique silvery leaves.

Size: 4ft+ in a 10” pot

Qty Available: 3


Philodendron Renauxii

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.

Size:About 2ft in 14” pots
