Sansevieria

The Loyal Friend

The Sansevieria family is one of the absolute favorites at GROW and usually our first recommendation. It's a large family that is fun to collect and easy to grow. The Sans also known as the Snake Plant can tolerate a bright to low light and minimal watering. This friend is as easy going as they come and it only has one little request... a drainage hole. It needs to be able to drain and dry out. We often recommend a classic terra-cotta or keeping it in it's growers' pot for easy drainage.

It's great for people with a hectic lifestyle or to give as a gift!

Fiddle Leaf Fig

Notorious

The Fiddle Leaf Fig, aka Ficus Lyrata, is our most requested plant, our most asked about plant, and our most worried about plant. Fiddle Leaf Figs have a reputation for being difficult.  It's well earned. The Fiddle prefers a bright indirect light with a consistent watering schedule. While the FLF has earned it's reputation for being a bit finicky, we also find a bit of human error is involved. Because this is a beautiful and trendy plant, we find that people want to put it in a particular place instead of were the plant wants to be. Nature before design is our motto!

Ferns

It's complicated

Ferns are gorgeous and always catch the eye of our customers. They are airy, soft and fluffy. You want to touch them and love them. However, some times it's a quick fling rather than a long term relationship. Ferns require a set up. They need humidity to stay happy. Humidity can come in the form of a humidifier or simple pebble tray. Try as we may, the dryness of our homes during the winter months is often too much for ferns to handle. If you are new to the fern game, we recommend starting with the Staghorn, Birds Nest or Green Flame Fern. They are easier and more forgiving.

Succulents

Life of the Party

Succulents are known for being very easy going but that's only if you treat them right. These gorgeous friends are colorful, engaging and love to party together in arrangements. People are drawn to them. However, not all of our homes are the perfect place for a large succulent collection. They need a bright and intense light to stay happy and compact. South or West facing is best. These party plants also need to be able to dry out between waterings. Water your succulents about every 2-3 weeks. Succulents aren't always considered a forever plant but if you think of them as long lasting flowers, you will be much happier with the relationship.
