Black Friday may be the best time for sales, but it's the worst time for buying plants. It's cold out, there are shipping delays, and your green babies get stuck in a truck somewhere between the nursery and your plant shelf.
That's why Plant Proper is doing Green Friday, offering all plants on their website at 30 percent off. But not it's not just one day of sales—it's a Green Friday weekend of sales. Starting today, Friday, March 25, all plants on their website are on sale until Green Friday weekend ends on March 27 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
Plant Proper may be flying a bit under the radar when it comes to online plant sellers, but if you haven't checked them out yet, now is the time! As one of the few online plant retailers actually growing their own plants, they are able to keep plants in the best possible environment to keep the leafy babies growing up until the moment you order one and it's packaged to be shipped. There's no growth time lost to sitting on a shelf in a plant store.
All purchases will be shipped out on Monday. And you won't have to wait long—plants are delivered in three days.
Here are some of our favorite picks from this major sale. (Note that the prices listed on the website are the full price—the 30 percent off discount is applied at checkout!)
Plant Proper Philodendron Birkin
Philodendron Birkin is an easy-care philodendron with a unique variegation pattern. The light variegation pattern makes it susceptible to burning under direct sun, so keep this leafy baby in indirect light only. With the 30 percent discount, a 4-inch pot costs $12.
Plant Proper Alocasia Black Velvet
Alocasia are just the latest aroid to be gaining in popularity in recent years. Growing from a rhizome, even if the plant loses all of its leaves, it can come back. The Black Velvet needs moderate indirect light and regular waterings (but don't soak it or it'll get root rot) to thrive. A 4-inch pot is $12 with the 30 percent discount.
Plant Proper Lime Zinger
A gorgeous neon green elephant ear plant, Xanthosoma aurea, or Lime Zinger, will add some color to your plant collection. But don't expect it to add just a dash of vibrancy—the leaves can grow up to 2-feet long! A 4-inch plant will set you back $14 after the discount, and a 6-inch pot will be $21 with the discount.
Plant Proper Peperomia Diamond
It looks a bit like a hoya, but this trailing plant baby is actually a Peperomia Diamond. Look closely and you can see the same stripes on the leaves that you see on other popular types of Peperomia (think Watermelon Peperomia). Put it up in a hanging basket and let it grow! It's just $9.45 after the discount.
Plant Proper Scindapsus Treubii 'Moonlight'
Minimal care is required for Scindapsus treubii 'Moonlight'. Moderate indirect light, watering when soil is dry, and monthly fertilizing will do the trick. This is a popular one, so you may have to join a waitlist for it, but Plant Proper plans to restock plants all weekend.
Plant Proper Syngonium Wendlandii
A compact plant with arrow-shaped leaves, Syngonium Wendlandii boasts dark green foliage with a white line down the middle. Give it bright indirect light with no exposure to the sun's rays and water infrequently. Get it in a 4-inch pot for $28 with the discount, or a 6-inch pot for $42 with the discount.
Plant Proper Philodendron Cordatum
If you've got enough Philodendron Brasil to fill an entire plant shelf, try Philodendron cordatum. Lush, green, heart-shaped leaves sprawl and trail until they're long enough to be propagated. Perfect for hanging in an east-facing window. Another popular plant that may put you on the waitlist to get, but worry not! There are more to come.
Plant Proper Alocasia Sinuata 'Quilted Dreams'
A gorgeous cultivar of Alocasia Sinuata, 'Quilted Dreams' has leaves that look—you guessed it—quilted thanks to the deep ridges. New leaves start in a light green and mature to a deeper shade. Prices start at $21 with the discount.
