Plant Mom with far too many plants!

Several years ago I lived in the middle of the desert with no trees and no nature around me. I was dying! I love plants! I asked my friend to give me a cutting of her beautiful pothos plant. I still have this cutting today, but it's huge and makes tons of its own babies! From there I learned about different plant needs and slowly added to my collection.

I currently have over 100 houseplants and a vegetable garden outside! I am constantly growing new babies and adding to my collection so be sure to favorite my shop to stay on top of what is available.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

When you receive your plant you must take it out of the box immediately. Unwrap it carefully, removing the sphagnum moss and put it in a glass of water in bright shade. Do not put cuttings in direct sunlight.

Cuttings that can be planted in soil can stay in water for a couple days before being planted in soil.

How are your plants shipped?

I live in a HOT desert so insulating plants is my #1 priority. Plant roots are wrapped in wet Sphagnum moss and damp paper towels. Then the root ball is lightly wrapped with plastic wrap taking care to avoid the leaves. Then the entire plant is wrapped in paper to protect the foliage.

I use recycled packing materials whenever possible with cardboard boxes. Plants are never shipped in envelopes. Newspaper, bubble wrap and fiberfill is what I use most often to ensure plants are insulated from extreme temperatures as well as drops.

Plants are shipped on Mondays or Tuesdays depending on my local temps.
