Just like fruit & veg, plants come in all shapes and sizes. Some might not come top of a beauty contest, but they'll still put a smile on your face for years to come. Our Perfectly Imperfect Plants are exactly that. They might be a strange shape or have the odd mark, but they're still beautiful. No matter which way these plants grow, or the marks they show, they're still as healthy as every other plant we sell.
What are my imperfections?
- There's nothing really wrong with me
- I'm just a bit smaller than my sisters
- As I'm not 'perfect', I can't be returned, and I'm not covered by a guarantee
Gigi, a Dischidia Geri, is actually a distant cousin to the Hoya family, which includes the likes of Harold, our Hoya Linearis. Gigi is sometimes referred to as an Ant Plant because in the wild she's actually natural habitat for ants.
Native to Asia, Gigi is an epiphyte, which means she's usually found growing up other trees, or small cracks in rocks.
Perfectly Imperfect, Dischidia Geri
Gigi prefers bright indirect light without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
