Geogenanthus ciliatus - Geo plant

6" Nursery Pot

We have run out of stock for this item.

Geogenanthus ciliatus, more commonly called (and easier to say) Geo Plant is a fun, fleshy-leaved plant that is sure to bring a little interest into your home. The palm-sized foliage resembles something like a Ficus, but the Geo Plant features interesting flowers, something you wouldn't get from a Ficus. The elegant foliage of the Geo Plant creates a fantastic contrast to ferns and other lacy houseplants. 

The best place to place a Geo Plant is somewhere with bright, direct sunlight and slightly higher humidity levels than other plants. We really enjoy placing our Geo Plant in the bathroom, it really adds a tropical vibe! Geo Plants are relatively rare, so be sure to scoop one up before we run out!
