This Weeks Selection of Pole Plants


Front Right: Swiss Cheese Vine, Middle Right: Heartleaf, Middle Left: Micans, Left: Brasil

Our selection of 6" Totem Poles this week is quite unique! All of these poles are continuous growers so be sure to leave them room to do so! As with most vining plants, they are also easy to propagate. Simply find a node, cut below it, stick that stem in rooting hormone, and either put it in dirt or water and wait for the vine to grow! Both methods will need a consistent water supply. While these plants do have some similar characteristics, they do vary in care needs.


The Swiss Cheese Vine, or Monstera Adansonii, is a native of the jungle and enjoys full sun and high humidity. They enjoy begin root bound and like a good watering every few weeks, but do not like to stay soaked. They will trail down or you can attach the Swiss Cheese Vine to a pole or tree and it will climb up. (Front Right)


The Heartleaf, or Philodendron Hederaceum, enjoys bright, indirect light and a tolerates average humidity. They do not like begin overwatered and may show this with signs of yellowing. They will trail down or you can attach the Heartleaf to a pole or tree and it will climb up. This plant is often mistaken for a Pothos, but the key difference is that the Philodendron leaves are heart shaped while Pothos leaves are more oblong shaped. This variety is also solid green in color. (Middle Right)

Though, this ones features are heart shaped leaves detailed with velvety green and purple leaves. The Micans leaves will droop if it is in need of watering, but be careful as this plant does not like begin overwatered.
