Frequently asked questions

What are you doing to stop the spread of COVID-19?

Also, disinfectant spray is used on trucks and areas being touched before being placed into the warehouse area or before being placed on pallets to be delivered. Along with this, no customers enter the Warehouse. Instead they can ring the doorbell as seen below and/or call the company number to contact us.

My Monstera Deliciosa tropical has a white speckle on one of its leaves. What does this mean?

This means your Monstera is actually a Veriegated Monstera plant! These are rare and vert special so you hit the jackpot! (see image below of an example of what it looks like) According to Plantofiles, "in order to get a variegated plant from a Monstera, you would have to make 100,000 cuttings! It is one of the hardest plants to come by! For more information, check out our blog page where we talk more about this kind of variety!
