  • Tricolor Melanocrater Air Plant
    Quick shop

    This variety comes from Central America. It’s leaves are hard, and each plant has three colors in it (hence its name.) The plant blooms violet flowers, and its spike color is either yellow or red (depending on the plant.)

    Care instructions: Water is usually the culprit when diagnosing why a plant has died. It is important to maintain a CONSISTENT watering schedule. Being consistent is important because air plants really start to thrive once they have acclimated to their surroundings. That being said, It is always better to underwater than over water. When you over water the plant rots out and dies immediately. When watering it is also important to keep in mind YOUR specific environment. By environment, we mean climate, air flow and lighting. For an example: If you plant is in an air conditioned home, and doesn’t receive a whole lot of light, it may only require watering once a week. That being said, even though an air conditioned home is cooler, it is also drier. So start with once a week, and look for curvature of the leaves. If that is occurring add another watering, but always let the plant dry out between watering cycles. Lastly, the type of variety is important. We break it down into two extremes (Green Varieties and White Varieties.) Green varieties most of the time come from low land habitats (ex. the rain forest.) They can take less light, and more water. White varieties, which are white because they are covered with trichomes, generally come from mountainous / drier habitats. These varieties can take much less water, but need more light. As discussed in the water section, light requirements are different for different varieties. We DO NOT recommend direct sunlight, especially between the hours of 10 and 2. Direct sunlight can cause burn, and all of our plants are greenhouse grown. This does not mean air plants cannot thrive in direct light. It only means it is variety specific. So to avoid heart ache, it is better to stay away from direct sunlight. It only takes one unusually hot day to fry your plants. Trust us, we have been there. Temperature is also a very important factor. The good thing about an  air plant is its ability to tolerate a spectrum of temperatures. Most air plants can survive in temperatures from 100+ degrees down to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep in mind that is only surviving not thriving. Optimally most varieties like temperatures in the high 70’s. A larger differentiation in day and night time temperature will also help to stimulate more color. You may find the need to increase watering in higher temperatures. It is not unheard of to water every other day when temperatures exceed 90 degrees.

    About the grower: The greenhouse is a family run business. Gerald, the owner, has been involved with everything from flowers and foliage to plants since he and his family immigrated here from the Netherlands in the early 80’s. The company has transformed many times, as Gerald has always set out to find the most unique and innovative products available. Their passion and care for air plants and succulents gives them the ability to offer the highest quality plants. They are unique in that most of the plants they sell are coming from mother plants grown from seed.

  • One-For-One Tree Kits
    Quick shop
    We need trees now more than ever. Trees purify the air by absorbing and storing harmful greenhouse gases, and releasing oxygen back into our atmosphere. They gather precious rainwater while their roots filter out pollutants and prevent erosion and flooding. They are precious home, shelter, sustenance, and habitat to thousands of living things: plants, mosses, animals, and insects. They calm our souls and inspire our imaginations. That's why we're on a mission to help reforest the future.

    We're on a mission to help reforest the future – for every kit purchased, a donation is made to plant a tree. Tree Kits feature carefully selected seed types that will thrive in most parts of the country. The container is made in the USA out of up-cycled cow manure, which is 100% biodegradable and helps heal nutrient-depleted soil.

    The Movement: 18.7 million acres of forest are lost each year. Every tree planted helps offset this loss, forming a brighter future for all of us.
