Box 3: baby plant box (£25)

  • Baby plant box
  • Box 3: £25

A box with some of my favourite plants from the other selections, just in miniature sizes. I know not everyone can afford to spend £55+ on plants — especially at the moment — so this is a selection of fast growing plants in little pots that you can grow into an indoor jungle yourself.

Each of these tiny pots has a really good sized plant inside, ready to be potted on and cared for, where it will quickly grow bigger and more impressive. As an extra bonus, this box comes with six plants instead of five!

The box includes one of each of the plants and care guides with growing tips for each one so you can keep them at their best.

Please note: for this trial period, delivery is to East Dulwich and local areas only. Or you can come and collect from me.

Price includes delivery. Deliveries will be contact free doorstep drops in a lockdown compliant way.

This box contains:

Maranta leuconeura 'Fascinator'

Prayer plant
(Maranta leuconeura ‘Fascinator’)

Known as a prayer plant because its leaves move from a horizontal position to point upwards during the night, this is a seriously unusual plant. The arresting lines on its leaves in greens and delicate pinks are a really distinctive feature. One to be displayed in a prime spot…

(8cm pot)

Schefflera 'Moondrop'

Schefflera ‘Moondrop’

This dwarf umbrella tree is a seriously sweet, seriously laid back plant. It will grow steadily and surely, taking very little care. Happy enough in a fairly shaded spot, it will grow fastest in bright, indirect light.

(8cm pot)

Ficus elastica ‘Tineke’

A gorgeous rubber plant with variegated leaves, this is a seriously speedy grower. I got my first one when it was about this size, two years ago, and it is now about 85cm tall!

Ficus Elastica is a sturdy plant that can cope with most things: shady spots, slightly neglectful watering, being generally forgotten about. The only thing it really can’t tolerate is sitting in water, so make sure this always drains fully after each watering.

Ficus elastica

Ficus elastica

Another rubber plant, this one with dark green-maroon glossy leaves. This will look great standing next to its variegated friend, or really next to any other plant at all, its darker leaves helping neighbours to really pop.

Also a fast grower, keep repotting this, and you’ll have a statement plant in no time…

(8cm pot)

Crassula arborescens ‘Undulatifola’

A lovely little jade plant, with large, wavy, paddle-shaped leaves. Jade plants are super easy to look after, just needing a sunny spot and very little water. Perfect for a bright windowsill.

(8cm pot)

Sedum morganium

Sedum morganium ‘Burrito’

Another appealing succulent, often referred to as “Burro’s Tail,” this sedum has oval blue-green leaves spiralling around the stems.

It likes a bright spot, somewhere out of the way of being knocked as it has a habit of dropping those leaves if anything so much as brushes them. No worries if that happens, though, as each leaf will root and grow into a new plant if it’s placed on some compost.
