Tropical Houseplants

Our tropical greenhouse is overflowing with beautiful foliage and a great selection of the best low-maintenance and exotic houseplants. There are many options for bright, sunny rooms or low light rooms. Many houseplants are naturally adapted to low light and are ultra-efficient at capturing light. We can help you choose the right plants to make your home more inviting.


Low Light Houseplants


These plants are perfect for offices or places in your home that don’t get a ton of light.


Sansevieria

Also known as Mother in Law’s Tongue or Snake Plant will grow anywhere. This plant loves to be ignored so don't over love or over water them!









Tillandsia or Air Plants


Good for hanging fixtures and make good decorations just about anywhere since they don't require soil.











Dracaena


Over-watering is one of the most common reasons a Dracaena will die. Let them dry out and then water deeply, letting the water drain from the bottom of the container. It could take up to 3 weeks to dry out in the winter.








Pothos


Excellent trailing plant for hanging baskets.










Ferns


Keep ferns' soil moist. They like humid environments, and do not like to dry out completely.












Ivy


Leaves will turn red when they are deficient in magnesium. Add a tablespoon of Epsom salt if this happens.










Cyanotis somaliensis


Also known as kitten ears – easy-care houseplant that would grow well in hanging baskets.











Beaucarnea recurvate


Also known as Ponytail Palm – Like Snake Plants, they also love to be ignored, so don’t over water them!













Chlorophytum comosum


Also known as Spider Plant – Brown tips mean it's over watered. Very easy to propagate.












Philodendron


Trailing varieties are excellent for hanging baskets. Other varieties are upright.












Monstera or Swiss Cheese Plant


Large, unique leaves are part of what make it one of 2019's "It" plants.
