Plant Care Guides from Greenhouse Co

At Greenhouse Co. we treat all our plants individually. Each has their own personality based on their origins and genetic history. We also want all our plants to flourish long after they leave our greenhouse and take up residence in in your home or office. Because of this we have created our own custom made plant guides to ensure you choose the right plant for your chosen location and can treat it the way it likes to live.

Care Guides (A-L)

African Mask Plant (Alocasia 'Amazonica')

I’m actually not African at all. I’m really not totally sure what my original origin is! My parents are almost certainly from East Asia, but me and my bros probably originated in America. Download African Mask Plant Guide

Begonia 'Rex'

My ancestors originated in the forests of Northern India, but I, like all my cousins, am the result of some genetic fiddling to make me more awesome! Download Begonia Rex Plant Guide 

Bird nest Fern (Asplenium australasicum)

I’m from the Wet Eucalypt Forests and Rainforest of the Eastern Coast of Australia, in the wild I normally grow on trees and rocks. Download Bird nest Fern Plant Guide 

Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata)

I prefer a humid position with bright indirect light or partial shade. Bathrooms are great if there is a decent amount of natural light. Download Boston Fern Plant Guide

Curly Sue (Epiphyllum guatemalense v. Montrose)

I wouldn’t call myself fussy but I like bright indirect light to partial shade, too much shade though and I’m unlikely to flower for you, direct sunlight will scorch my locks! Download Curly Sue Plant Guide

Emerald Ripple Peperomia (Peperomia caperata)

I like bright but indirect light. So near a south-facing window would be great. I also do really well under artificial light so I’m happy to hang out at the office! Download Emerald Ripple Peperomia Plant Guide

Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata)

I’m an evergreen tree with beautiful, big, glossy green, undulate fiddle shaped leaves. Originally I’m from the tropical regions of Central and West Africa. Download Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant Guide

Golden Rat Tail Cactus (Cistocactus winteri)

I’m native to Bolivia and, in the wild my family occur in only two isolated populations! I produce vivid orange to salmon pink flowers on my long golden stems. Download Golden Rat Tail Plant Guide

Hoyas (Wax Plants)

We form a large genus of climbing or creeping tropical vines found throughout Asia, Polynesia, New Guinea and Australia. We have mazing foliage and flowers! Download Hoya Wax Plant Guide

Jungle Cacti (Epiphyllum, Lepismium, Rhipsalis etc.)

We, the Cacti, are a highly evolved family of plants. We spend our time hanging out, literally, in the moist tropics of Central and South America. Download Jungle Cacti Plant Guide

Lemon Buttons Fern (Nephrolepis cordifolia 'Duffii')

If I were still in the forest I’d most likely be hanging out on a tree. I’m only little and probably won’t get much larger than 30cm tall. Download Lemon Button Fern Plant Guide

Lipstick Plant (Aesynanthus marmorata)

Believe it or not we’re actually closely related to those African Violets that your Gran used to grow. We are all members of the Gesneriaceae family. Download Lipstick Plant Guide

Care Guides (M-Z)

Madagascar Palm (Pachypodium lamerei)

I’m from an island off the East Coast of Africa called Madagascar, in the wild I will grow into a small tree but I take a very long time to get there. Download Madagascar Palm Plant Guide

Philodendron 'Imperial Green'

Whilst I am great at removing toxins such as benzene and formaldehyde from the air I am also poisonous to your pets, so don’t let them eat me. Download Philodendron 'Imperial Green' Plant Guide

Philodendrons and other Aroids

Our lot, the Philodendrons are, for the most part pretty easy to care for, especially those of us commonly found in cultivation. Download Philodendron Plants Guide

Satin Pothos (Scindapsus pictus 'Argyraeus')

I’m from the forests of South East Asia. My big, heart shaped satiny green leaves with splashes of silvery grey is where I get my name! Download Satin Pothos Plant Guide

Sinningia bullata

My foliage is super unusual, white and furry underneath and bubbly and green on top. I also have beautiful tubular red flowers that I produce year round. Download Sinniingia Bullata Plant Guide

Watermelon Peperomia (Peperomia argyreia)

What I lack in size I make up for with my spectacular foliage which looks like the rind of a watermelon propped up by watermelon red stems. Download Watermelon Peperomia Plant Guide

Zebra Plant (Calathea zebrina)

I’m a proud Brazilian native. If I were at home I would be growing in the rainforest. I can get quite large for an indoor plant! Download Zebra Plant Guide
