Hawaiian tropical plants are known to have a distinctly superior overall look than their Costa Rican or Floridian counterparts and can live up to four times longer. Why? Because Hawaii’s ideal climate and growing conditions naturally produce superior tropical plants with thicker plant caliper, greater fullness, superior color, and consistency in how they look.
Hawaiian tropical plants tend to be very difficult to kill because of their stronger and healthier root systems, ultimately requiring less overall maintenance and replacement costs. Plus, most Hawaiian plants’ media consists of lava rock cinder and peat moss.
This mix provides four main benefits:
Better water drainage and aeration to plant root systems due Hawaii’s unique media porosity;
Minimal media compaction as cinder does not break down;
Slower decomposition of organic material, leading to a more stable media that is less prone to soil-based insects;
Less fungus, gnats, and disease.
According to NASA researchers, Hawaii’s vast array of premium potted foliage are some of the best plants to filter and improve air quality to better your health! These plants include Rhapis Excelsa, Chamaedorea Seifrizii, Dracaena Janet Craig, Ficus “Alii” (“Alii” means “royal” in Hawaiian), Dracaena Fragrans, Dracaena Warneckii, Dracaena Marginata, Norfolk Island Pine, Dendrobium Orchids, Anthurium, and Phalaenopsis Orchids.
