Antheriums Philodendron Pothos Scindapsus & Monstera


Araceae is a broad class of plants which include my favorites; Aglaonema,Antheriums, Philodendrons, Pothos & Monstera. Most of these plants make great house plants however some require a bit more humidity and light than normal. Scindapsus have been grouped in with the pothos as they often are however they are noted as scindapsus not pothos. Many of these plants are in growth or currently in propogation so if you are interested in something in particular please send us an email to inquire about availability if not listed as available.
