Skip Paying Rent And Buy These Plants Instead salisbury greenhouse sherwood park st. albert

Rare plants are the ultimate flex. They show you’ve got a taste for the finer things in life and an ability to cultivate something beautiful. Trust us—your landlord will totally understand if you’re behind on a rent payment when they see how mind-bogglingly beautiful your new plants are. These bad boys are top-tier, elite status. Step aside, Ikea plants. Make way for the league of extraordinary houseplants.   

Piper Crocatum

Rarity: 🔥🔥🔥🔥

From the rainforests of Peru hails this super rare plant, with magnificent trailing foliage frosted with silver and rose gold. Hang it in a basket, so its metallic, heart-shaped leaves sparkle in the sunlight. For major style points, you can train the vines to climb up and around a vintage mirror to create a beautiful frame of lush foliage. Run, don’t walk to your nearest location to snag this rare one.

You could start a YouTube channel that consists only of videos of you running your fingers across those ridged leaves. Step 2: Monetize, Step 3: Pay that rent. Step 4: Save money to buy more rare plants in store now.

Alocasia Hilo Beauty

Rarity: 🔥🔥

We love a good statement textile to add some personality to your home decor, so if a cowhide rug isn’t in the budget, an eye-catching Alocasia will have the same impact. Those spots are so on-point. Its stems take on a cool blue-black tone, bringing edge and attitude to this distinctive rare plant. Hurry before they are all gone!

Rarity: 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Camo print is back in style, and this tropical stunner absolutely nails the look. The multi-tonal leaves look as though they were hand-painted by an impressionist artist with all the prettiest greens in the paint palette. It’s like a classed-up camo! Check out our nearest location for this rare one, this camo stands out!

Silver Satin Pothos

Rarity: 🔥🔥

A pothos plant is pretty much an essential for any plant collector, so if you’re going to choose one, it may as well be the coolest pothos out there. This silver variegated trailing plant is dripping with swag. That rich, jewel-toned teal foliage is giving us heart palpitations. Slide into our nearest location to check this one out!

Rarity: 🔥🔥🔥🔥

There’s something about that perfectly symmetrical white veining on deep green leaves that just hits differently. The vibes are immaculate. If your landlord shows up at your doorstep to collect rent, just show them this plant and they’ll be too mesmerized to formulate a sentence. If you get evicted, then just come spend the day in our store browsing these beauties.

Alocasia Scalprum

Rarity: 🔥🔥🔥🔥

For real, it could land a paid partnership with Glossier cosmetics. The shine is off the charts. In the wild, it’s only found on the tiny island of Samar in the Philippines, so snagging one of these for your personal collection will definitely impress. Even if you can’t afford it, come in and snap some pictures of the Alocasia scalprum while it’s still here.

Mmm, that colour contrast, though. The foliage is the real moneymaker on this orchid, as each leaf is adorned with crisp, white, squiggly veins on top and a pink copper frost on the bottom. That being said, the white flowers that sprout up from its tall stems are pretty dang adorable. Come see this cutie-pie!

Alocasia Pink Dragon

Rarity: 🔥🔥

The stems are pink, and the leaves look like dragon wings. Need we say more? If you’re still in denial that Game of Thrones is over, the mystical vibes of Alocasia Pink Dragon will satisfy your thirst for fantasy. Now you, too can be a mother (or father) of dragons. Fly in now to see this beast!

Rarity: 🔥🔥🔥

The foliage of this rare orchid has absolutely no business being so beautiful! The AUDACITY! Its dark leaves have crisp, crackling veins of blazing gold and red, like volcanic magma. They’re pretty small and thrive in glass enclosures, so we recommend finding a stylish terrarium for this rare plant. She’s going to be snagged quickly, so hurry!

The urge to cultivate a spectacular collection of rare plants is just too real. Lucky for you, both our locations are stocking more incredible, rare varieties all the time!
