1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Lilah. This cute spunky girl can't wait to spread her cascading rainbow of colorful foliage into your living space. Looking like little pink bows, her fleshy leaves are a mixture of white, green, pink, and mauve stripes and blotches. Treat her right and she may even reward you with her small white flowers. Never stick Lilah in a dark corner, or she will show her dislike of the area by losing her beautiful colors. She will look the prettiest with lots of bright indirect light every day. Lilah loves a good hair cut, and asks that you keep her maintained. Her trailing tendrils have a tendency to get leggy, so pruning them becomes a must if you want to maintain a healthy appearance. Lilah is a plant that you need to know: low maintenance, fun, and easy!

Elizabeth, the Senecio rowleyanus (String of Pearls)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Elizabeth With her timeless elegance like heirloom pearls around the neck, she never goes out of style! She is simple to care for but her simple style is anything but average. She grows best in bright indoor light, and a dash of diluted houseplant fertilizer every month keeps her fashion game strong! In a take-charge way, she'll let you know when it's time to water again by deflating her pearls a bit and looking less than succulent. So pay attention because overwatering is the quickest way to say goodbye to this beauty.

Vanilla Bean Orchid

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Everyone knows the scent and taste of vanilla. But did you know that all vanilla comes from the fruit of an orchid? Of the tens of thousands of orchids known to the world, Vanilla planifolia is the only orchid to produce an edible fruit and what an amazing fruit that has turned out to be… For 300 years, no one was able to get the orchids to bear fruit. Then, in 1836, it was discovered that a miniscule bee (the Melipone) was the sole pollinator of the vanilla orchid. Outside of their native habitat of Mexico, vanilla plant flowers must be hand-pollinated in order to produce the fruit. This means all the vanilla coming from other countries is hand pollinated. You can understand why vanilla is the most expensive spice after saffron!

Ramona, the Peperomia puteolata (Parallel Peperomia)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Ramona. She hits the personality sweet spot...neither too trendy nor too eccentric.

Semi-succulent, so go easy on the water and give her bright light (but not direct sun).

Mimi, the Mimosa pudica (Sensitive Plant)

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Meet Mimi. She has a reputation for quickly closing her leaves and looking wilted. Her tendency towards sensitivity just means she feels sensations and emotions more deeply than others. But don't worry, she just needs some "me time" and she'll open up and be back at the party. She's a great friend for kids, helping them develop an interest in plants, and delightful for adults too! Her occasional flowers are pink puffballs right out of a storybook. Mimi enjoys a room with bright indirect light and an even touch with the water (she's not a fan of soggy roots).

Aloe Vera

1" STARTER PLANT *Terracotta pot in photo sold separately. Aloe vera is grown for its succulent leaves which have a variety of culinary and medicinal uses. The leaves contain a clear gel that's a popular home remedy. According to the Mayo Clinic, this substance may shorten the healing of first- and second-degree burns and promote wound healing. Perennial in zones 9+, aloe is typically grown as a houseplant since it won't overwinter in cooler climates. Very little water is required. These drought-resistant plants grow best in hot, dry areas and excessive water could cause them to rot. Water regularly but allow soil to dry out before watering again. During the winter months, water only enough to keep the leaves from shriveling.
