Bundle contents: Syngonium 'Pixie' (12cm pot), Score Pot, Mikado (10cm), Carbon Pot, Australian Chestnut (12cm pot), Sandstorm Pot, Glass Mister, Copper Fairy Lights.
To start, this particular Syngonium has been dubbed the Pixie, thanks to its fairytale markings and pixie-hood leaves. Originating in the rainforests of South America, Syngoniums are also sometimes called arrowhead plants. Their leaves are shaped like elongated hearts, and are split at the top. Most varieties have longer, narrower leaves; the Pixie's are stouter. These plants are very easy to keep happy, they require moderate watering and do best in a warm, humid environment. We've paired this green beauty with the Score Pot, to make that leaf colour really pop against it's bright light glaze.
Next we have the Mikado; a rarely-seen Snake Plant originating from West Africa, where the climate is hot and mostly dry. Mikados are sometimes called Witches' Fingers as their fronds are long, spindly and finish in a point. They're tiger-striped or variegated in appearance, coming in a range of greens and blues. It likes a little humidity but be very careful not to overwater - think of Snake Plants as cactus-like succulents. We've paired with the Carbon Pot Small, the charcoal black of the pot really adds to the witchy and quirky appearance of this little succulent.
The third plant is the Australia Chestnut, native to the Land Down Under; specifically its coastal regions. The chestnut from which this plant grows is visible at the base of the plant, hence the alternative common names: Lucky Bean or Jack's Beanstalk. It grows dense, glossy leaves on long stems and usually flowers in the summer, producing small or orange clusters of blooms. We've paired with our Nebular Pot Small; the sandy speckles and half glazed effect nicely reflects the coastal areas of Aus this beauty originates from.
Also included is our stylish Glass Mister Bottle; regular misting of your indoor plants will keep their surrounds humid, replicating their naturally tropical growing environment, and will keep them looking their best.
Finally, add the finishing touches with our string of LED-fairy lights. This set has 100 warm-white bulbs, strung on a delicate copper wire. Use these to brighten any room and give this season's festivities, a tropical plant twist.
