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!
