This batch of plants were rescued on their way to the compacter. Basically just plants that had been in for months not selling, taking up much needed space needed for newer, nicer looking plants and generally needing more care &/or time to get them back up to prime condition. Very little actually got thrown out, most plants were adopted. Here's what I got:
Asplenium sp. - Needs some fertilizer and a small trim of some of the oldest leaves but otherwise in good shape, nice and healthy. I've had good luck with my other two Asplenium species so I imagine this should be happy for me as well.
Chlorophytum x 'Fire Flash' - This plant is actually in excellent condition. I trimmed off some developing seed pods and gave it a quick shower but more cleaning is needed to make it into an overall attractive plant again. Absolutely love the colour on the petioles.
Aechmea fasciata - Healthy plant though it is well past flowering. Three large vigorous pups tell me this should be no problem though.
This one only came to me in a roundabout way. It had been written off but they were in prime condition and basically the only reason they weren't selling was that they were $80 a pop (!). Sure they were a good full 8" sized pot, in attractive ceramic containers growing in passive hydroponics but I can't see anyone spending that much for them. Instead they were divided, repotted and planted up and priced to sell, I presume the ceramic containers will be priced separately as well and at the end of the day we'll get our money for them - I was given a division of this one which is basically my favourite Sansevieria trifasciata cultivar I've seen.
Anyone have any idea on which cultivar it actually is? It's a very light coloured almost silver/gray with darker banding. Exact colours vary from branch to branch as you can see in the picture but it is a very striking unique looking snake plant.
