What’s not to love about the Strawberry Shake?
This plant is named after the myriad of colors formed – from the moment the leaf pushes out from the sheath to the moment it matures into its final form. It reminds us of a vintage polaroid!
New variegation emerge as a silky-smooth cream color, gradually develops into pink, and matures into orange – all before its true variegation patterns are revealed! As time passes, its variegation slowly reveals a wide assortment of colors – white, orange, pink, even ruby red!

Current Growing Conditions
Our plants are happily growing under full-spectrum grow lights for 16 hours a day.
Fertilizing + Watering
Our fertilizer blend is complete with all 16 essential elements (more comprehensive than the typical N-P-K that one might find in ordinary fertilizers). We love that our fertilizer blend leaves no residue in the potting material, resulting in happy and thriving plants! We dilute our fertilizer at 1 teaspoon per gallon, watered once every few days depending on each plant’s personal needs.
We propagate entirely by stem cuttings, and maintain glass water chambers specifically for our plant propagations. Once we observe that a plant has developed rootlets, they are transplanted to our special in-house substrate blend!
We’ve experimented with many substrate types, and found that our plants grow best in our special house blend: an organic kelp meal mixture, combined with rice hulls and buckwheat hulls for drainage. We’ve opted for hulls over perlite (used in our previous mix) for sustainability.
We regularly release beneficial nematodes (Amblyseius Cucumeris) for pest prevention and pest control.
