New-succulent-plants-on-Canarius We have recently uploaded more new plants on our website and some species are truly extraordinary! There are lots of new heliconias, aloes, hoyas, palms, and bananas. We are just starting with succulents and many more will come in the following weeks. Right after, we will explain some of these new species: – Amorphophallus titanum, the Titan Arum, produces the largest of all “flowers”. It is an incredible monster that is seldom seen in cultivation only the best botanical gardens keep one in their greenhouses and few lucky collectors. – Mangifera casturi, the Kasturi mango. This is a different, rare mango species, considered sacred in Borneo. It has the flavour of all flavours. It is grafted on Mango Gomera-1 to increase cold resistance. A true release! – Aspidistra cv. Asa Ahi. It is one of the most sought-after variegated perennials from Japan. The new leaves take almost two years to get the snow-white top that drives everybody crazy. It is frost-hardy and it can live indoors as a house plant. -  Hechtia tillandsioides: A cold-hardy terrestrial bromeliad with spineless soft silvery leaves. Seldom seen for sale, it will also bless your garden with huge “sprays” of pink flowers. – Rhapis excelsa VARIEGATED CULTIVARS. It took a lot of years to make the mother plants grow, but the first plants are now ready for sale! We offer different named clones of these uncommon variegated plants. They are also perfect as indoor plants for your home!

Hoya australis, the perfect aromatic and indoor plant

Canarius | Friday May 22nd, 2015 |

Hoya_australis_On Canarius.com, we are aware of you are a real plant lover. That’s why we are going to write about a special plant today: Hoya australis. This is a lovely Australian native plant, commonly well-known as wax flower. Hoya australis is found on rainforest margins and rocky areas, with white fragrant blooms. Furthermore, it is easy to grow and somehow cold-tolerant, even though it does better if protected from frost. The five recognized subspecies of this plant are in Papua New Guinea, Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales (and on canarius.com now). Although there are a great variety of other species of Hoya found in tropical areas too: China, India and Indonesia. Hoya australis produces fragrant flowers, above all in the evenings or at night, making them popular indoor species. That’s to say, a great house plant to keep inside, applying finishing touches with a natural environment. Likewise, the leaves are thick, succulent and almost round in shape, growing up to 9cm across. In this sense, this kind of Australian plant needs well-drained, but not necessarily especially fertile soil to grow in. They will tolerate a few weeks of drought but they are sensitive to frost and cold weather in general. Moreover, very little pruning is required, except on older plants which may need cutting back to rejuvenate the vine.
