This plant was acquired as a pink clone of A. sagittifolius but appears to be a different species. We thought it was simply a different flower color for Abelmoschus sagittifolius, but when it leafed out, we realized we had a different species. The leaves start off with a soft serrated orbicular appearance, then as the stem progresses, the leaves begin to morph into a trilobed leaf as evidenced in the photo. Very strange!

Adenium bicolor 'Picotee' x 'Splash'
A Mark Dimmitt hybrid that has a similar appearance to the 'Harry Potter' hybrid adenium. These plants are of flowering size and ready to be moved up to a larger pot.
PERFECT STARTER FOR A BONSAI PROJECT
Adenium complex arabicum x crispum x obesum
This cross produces large caudexes fast. In the ground the plant gets enormous. We have not bloomed the plant yet but flowers have stripes coming out of the throat onto the petals.
An attractive pot plant or hardy landscape plant, cylindrical spike with rose-red bracts and yellow flowers. A medium sized clustering plant with an upright rosette shape and short stolons. The green foliage has a dusting of trichomes giving a slight grayish appearance.
The Agave most commonly called the 'Century Plant'. There are numerous forms, but the typical form is a fairly giant grower reaching 6 to 10 feet across in a rosette of wide, tapering, stiff leaves with prominent marginal spines and terminating in a elongated, sharp, stiff terminal spine. The plants are attractive with a gray, gray-green or glaucous coloration. Size is somewhat dependent on container size, and those planted in landscape will attain the maximum size. Very stately and widely used in landscapes world wide. Many plantlets or offsets are produced on stolons around the base for easy propagation. The inflorescence can reach 30 feet tall, after which the plant dies off. Grown all over the world, but native only to Mexico.
Agave potatorum (mammillate form)
This variable species can be found in various sizes and shapes with varying marginal spines. This form has distinctly mammillate leaf margins.
For lovers of weird, a nearly leafless, shrub-like member of the Didiereaceae that can reach nearly 10 feet tall but grows in a rather haphazard clump of tangled branches. The cylindrical stems are kind of olive green with silver tricomes and bears scattered conical spines which are stout but not ‘dangerous’.
Native to southern coastal Madagascar in the regions of the thorn forest from near sea level to almost 1,000 feet. A dioecious species that requires both sexes to set seed, but is easily propagated from cuttings. Reportedly slow growing but we do not find this to be especially true. Best grown in full sun to partial shade, well drained soils and moderate watering. Protect from freezing.
THIS PLANT IS ON C.I.T.E.S. AND CANNOT BE EXPORTED
A moderately sized species from Thailand with deep green to almost black foliage edged in red and a pink and brown petiole mottled with rounded white spots. The foliage is attractive, deep green above, reddish below with a red edge to the leaf.
This is a new species for us. It has very unusual tubers that are long and thin. The leaf is highly divided with a narrow pale green spathe on a tall stalk that has a long lime-green spadix. It is native to Central and West Thailand.
Shipped partially bare-root.
This Amorphophallus could possibly be a new species. The leaves are intricate with scalloped edges.

A bigeneric hybrid by Chester Skotak. Has a mature upright rosette to 24 inches in diameter and 24 inches tall. the leaves are light green and slightly spined. The inflorescence is erect ,compound, ovoid ,tightly-branched spike of red and yellow bracts and purple flowers.
Assorted Terrarium Bromeliad Offsets
Our terrarium bromeliad offset collections are chosen from small and miniature plants with a preponderance of Neoregelia species and hybrids. We may include plants from other genera, but all are of a smaller size that will work in most terrariums. Other criteria considered are suitability to average terrarium light and humidity, smaller spines to protect fragile animals and water holding capability and leaf axils suitable to accommodate frogs, at least in some selections.
We do not include Cryptanthus, atmospheric Tillandsias, or any terrestrial bromeliads. A good assortment is given, but there will be duplication.
Depending on the number of plants ordered, we will include from one to five of each variety and on some larger orders, up to ten of a variety. At least one of each variety will be labeled, and bundled with others of the same type. We can offer some choice as to overall size, etc., but, no choices can be given regarding variety. An exception can be made, only if a certain variety is not acceptable to you, then you can request that we do not include them.
All plants will be well grown, healthy and free of pesticides. However, since we are regulated by the state, some pesticides are occasionally used. We do not ship freshly treated plants in terrarium orders, but we would rather see you take the precaution of rinsing your plants with clean water prior to installing them in the terrarium environment.
