Sansevieria masoniana (whale fin Sans)
The whale fin Sansevieria (now classified into the genus Dracaena) is a resilient houseplant fit for nearly any home. While the whale fin Sans can tolerate low light and dry conditions, it will perform better when given quality morning light in an east-facing window, or near a west or south-facing window. Sansevieria are prone to root rot and overwatering, so we’ve potted our house-propagated whale fins in a potting mix with extra perlite and pumice for drainage.
Philodendron subhastatum is native to the forests of Columbia and Ecuador and is valued for the red undersides of the leaves. This hemi-epiphytic climber will continue to grow up a moss pole and should have humidity levels above 40% to thrive. Our Philodendron subhastatums are all grown in a chunky Aroid mix that best replicates the jungle ground in an east or shaded west-facing window.
Named for its beautiful veining pattern on the leaves, Hoya callistophylla thrives in bright, humid conditions and is a great addition to a grow-tent or plant cabinet. This Hoya should be kept in a chunky mix with mostly bark and perlite in a small pot, which will help reduce the risk of root rot - as Hoya typically don’t have a robust root system. Don’t worry about repotting your Hoya callistophylla until the vines have reached a considerable length.
