Description

Zone 9-10

A lovely purple plant that loves to be in the shade! That is always handy to fill in those hard to grow spots!

Bright - NEED some morning sun. No afternoon sun or the leaves will burn!
Shade - Indirect light. Can handle some morning sun. No afternoon sun or the leaves will burn!

Water about every 1-2 weeks

Don't forget to check out out other listings! I have all sorts of items, from plant to Persian rugs. I am constantly finding new stuff to bring to the shop!

Shipping: I will put HOLD AT POST OFFICE unless otherwise requested. This seems to work out well as it keeps the plants off the hot trucks and hot porches! If you need them shipped to your location, I have liners and cold/heat packs available (depending on season). I try to ship the best way I can, price as well as service. Excess shipping charges will be refunded.

Plants are hardy but keep in mind shipping takes a toll! I package as carefully as I can and am generally successful. Still, please let me know if you have any issues with them!


$4.25 for liner (8x8x8)
$2.75 for heat pack
$1.50 for cold pack

Liners and packs will be a separate charge and will have to be requested as a custom order from my main page! Ask if you need assistance!


Bulk Discounts on plants:

10% off $20
15% off $30
20% off $40

THESE DISCOUNTS HAVE TO BE MANUALLY ADJUSTED AFTER THE SALE IS MADE! I will adjust the total at the same time I adjust the shipping.

The price is for one plug as shown. Plugs are wonderful for Miniature and Fairy Gardens because they are small and do not require splitting or trimming of the root mass to fit them in and potentially shocking the plant past survival. If you want to spread them around, just order a couple!

*!*!*! For those wanting more quantity of plants than listed, I can possibly help! I get my plants per flat, usually either 72 or 128 units per. I don't list all of them so if you need more, just ask! Larger volume and Flat prices are lower per unit, and I would be glad to help. I can also potentially source a plant you may want that I do not have in my current inventory. Availability is on a week to week basis for the nursery industry, so there are no guarantees the plant you want will be available. I can also help you decide on a plant if you are just going for a look with a specific location in mind and not sure what to get. My resources and I can help! Never hesitate to ask a question!

FAQs

The majority of plants used in general applications have these general requirements. Exceptions always exist!

Shade or Part Shade:
Light: Indirect light. Can handle some morning sun. No afternoon sun or the leaves will burn!
Water: When the very top 1/2 inch or so is dry. About every 1-2 weeks

Bright or Part Sun:
Light: NEED some morning sun. No afternoon sun or the leaves will burn!
Water: When the top 2 inches is mostly dry. About every 1-3 weeks depending on how much light, more light = more frequent watering.

Full or Succulent:
Light: Needs lots of morning sun. CAN handle afternoon sun, though part shade in summer is best.
Water: Allow to dry considerably between waterings. About every 3-4 weeks at most.
I can source whole trays of plugs. Availability is dependent upon the grower. I have a greatly discounted per unit price for the trays.

I can also potentially source other items as well. If you email me with the item description you are looking for, I can see if i can purchase it wholesale.

The more items you get of a type, the less the per unit price.

This only applies to new items, vintage items can not be sourced.
Plants do not do well gift wrapped. They need light and water. The other items I have, however, could be gift wrapped. Just send me an email inquiry and I can go over the details.
Just like yourself, plants have a preference of soil, light, and water amounts. Some plants prefer always wet soils such as those trees in ponds and fish tanks, others like to be chapped lip and cracked skin dry, such as cacti. Luckily, plants that like dryer environments also tend to prefer brighter light and vice versa. This makes it easy to remember how to water your plant by just knowing what kind of light it needs.

Overwatering: This is the biggest death of house plants. There are not very many plants that survive being in a bog. IF YOU OVERWATER, you need to dry the soil out a little faster. The easiest way is to move it to a draftier or brighter area. Do NOT move your plant to an area with afternoon sun (unless it is a succulent).
We ship USPS and FedEx. Though larger items may go by LTL. We try to keep the shipping cost as low as we can but still maintain integrity of items. Plants, for instance, will be shipped priority or first class even though ground is cheaper.

Excess shipping charges will be refunded if over $1 and in increments of $0.25.

Freight Damage:

Please document any damage to packages prior to opening. Remittance procedures can not start or even be considered if there is no evidence of a problem. Claims of damage due to shipping are the buyer's responsibility. The shipping services will only work with the receiver of the package. I will not refund your item price due to shipper negligence. Document everything!
Wool Rugs

Vacuum regularly! Do not have the brush going though. Just the suction.

If you spill something, blot clean immediately! Do not use harsh cleansers, just think of it as your favorite expensive clothing item. Look into vinegar solutions and have a bottle mixed up and handy for every party.

If you do these things, you shouldn't have to get a professional cleaning done very often. Wool rugs are sturdy (just look at how old they are!) and will last a long time with just these two simple rules.

If you need more thorough information on cleaning your rug, there are a few websites out there that have a ton of Dos and Don'ts from people far more knowledgeable than I.
Cane Furniture

Wipe down with a damp cloth once a week. Do not oil. Seriously. Cane needs moisture to stay nice and tight. If you let it get dry, it will break. It can be expensive to replace.
Wood and leather

Keeping it oiled, but not too oiled, is helpful in maintaining that beautiful glow. Wiping it down with the requisite cleanser once a month or so helps keep your furniture looking good.
