DECEMBER 2022 HOLIDAY SHIPPING NOTICE: Live plant orders must be placed by noon (MST) on Monday, December 12th. After this deadline, the inventory will drop to zero to prevent accidental ordering.

Meet Velvet! We admit it, we’re Velvet addicts. Her unique soft, smooth leaves epitomize luxury and command adoration. And the whole color situation? Oh my. The mature leaves boast their plush, deep olive green hue, the new growth emerges chartreuse and gold, tinged with magenta. Floating like an iridescent creature, Velvet will entrance you whether she’s climbing a trellis or trailing luxuriously out of a basket.

We recommend planting this plug in our Aroid potting soil.

**IMPORTANT NOTE:
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

Notes:

  • Likes regular water, somewhat drought tolerant, never let the bottom of the pot sit in water! If leaves are turning yellow and falling off, it's likely over-watered.
  • Grows best in medium to bright indirect light.
  • All parts of the plant are toxic to people and pets.
  • Skill Level: Beginner
