Top 10 Favorite RARE Houseplants! Hey planty people and welcome to my blog! I wanted to show and talk about some of my favorite rare plants in my collection.
While you’re here check out my
Instagram page for my plants!
Without further delay, let’s get into them!
I’ve been growing this Billietiae for almost 2 years now. My most recent venture was propagating him into 3 pieces, and planting them back together! He’s growing so full now!
2. Monstera Thai Constellation
I went a full 7 months without a single new leaf from this guy. One day he pushed out a new leaf, and soon after another, and then again with one more now! All within a few months, maybe he just needed time to settle in.
3. Philodendron Hederaceum Variegata
I was so fortunate to get this plant from a trade last year, it’s quickly become one of my favorites! Currently growing up a Coco Coir pole, can’t wait to see some really big leaves one day.
4. Philodendron Fibrosum
The Fibrosum was on my wishlist for years, and one day my friend gifted me a cutting from his! I’ve grown that cutting into this gorgeous beast today! Obsessed with the hairy petioles.
5. Alocasia Zebrina Reticulata
A once more common Alocasia now a bit more elusive. Happy to have snagged this specimen before the prices jumped! But I see them working their way back down now so all will be well again.
6. Anthurium Papillilaminum
I am SHOCKED I even own this plant! Let alone it growing! My ultimate goal is try and hybrid him between my other Anthuriums!
7. Philodendron Paraiso Verde
I imported this specimen as a one leaf cutting with a single short root. Soon after coming home he rooted like crazy and shot off a bunch of leaves! I’ve since propagated him and planted more back together to create a full mother plant.
A slightly more uncommon Thaumatophyllum in the family, but I love him dearly. His new leaves come out already pretty big, and by the time they’ve hardened off it’s doubled in size!
9. Philodendron Florida Ghost
I’ve had a handful of Philodendron Florida Ghosts run through my house, and this one was the first to actually give me those iconic ghosty leaves! The secret is bright light and patience!
10. Philodendron White
This little guy has gone through the ringer with me. He was once a big plant with large leaves, then BAM! Root rot! Restarted the whole plant and all the rest of my propagation attempts rotted. Except this one! He’ll return to his former glory soon.
Well that’s all for today! Thank you so much for making it this far in my post and I hope to see you in the next one! Make sure to follow my Instagram if you want to stay updated on my plant adventures!
