Tamsin, the Rhaphidophora cryptantha (Shingle Plant)
Meet Tamsin. She guides wildlife photo safaris into Montana’s Bob Marshall Wilderness. Oh, the stories she has! She’ll lead you into the remote backcountry on horseback, sleeping under stars brighter than you have ever imagined. Pour some cowboy coffee and join her by the campfire. If you are lucky, she’ll tell you the tale of the wild marks on her leaves… both the grizzly bear and the tree she climbed growing larger with each telling!
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
