Meet Humphrey! A magnificent being, his silvery blue leaves are like a graceful pod of whales migrating around the room. And just like whales, Humphrey the Cebu Blue is known for his great travels during the growing season. He devotes a huge portion of his life to being on the move. Depending on the light, his long narrow leaves can look oceanic green to blue to silver, and as he ages he will begin to produce those much sought-after fenestrations. Maybe he thinks he’s developing baleen for straining fungus gnats like krill? We certainly wish he would.
We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.
THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 2″ FULLY ROOTED STARTER PLANT, AS SHOWN IN THE SECOND PHOTO. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included.
We root certain plants in sphagnum moss for greatest shipping success. When you go to repot your plant, carefully remove the growers pot and gently tease open the sphagnum and roots. If some sphagnum falls off, no worries! It can be discarded or added to your potting medium. If some stays attached to the roots, just let it be. Your roots will grow happily around it. We advise that you don’t overly mess with the roots, they don’t need to be picked clean. Questions? Message us!
Winter shipping has begun… as a heartfelt thank you, this year we are including free winter protection (thermal insulation liners every time and heat packs as necessary) in each box. *Free winter protection only available through website orders, not our Etsy shop
