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.

Philodendron Mayoi

These vining philodendrons are native to the Brazilian rainforests. Philodendron Mayoi (or Philodendron Tahiti as they’re often called), are sought after for their exotic vibe and large, arching leaves. They make great beginner plants because they’re so easy to care for and are relatively pest free. Just keep an eye out for the usual suspects such as thrips. Although it can tolerate a couple hours of direct sunlight, they do best in bright, indirect light. Philodendron Mayoi is considered fairly rare and are usually sold as small plants. I’ve got 6 large specimens for those of you looking for instant impact or mothers for propagation.

Variegated Whale Fin Sansevieria

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. You usually find them selling as single leaf cuttings, but our plants are fully rooted and full with 2-3 leaves.
