Alex’s Florida Plant Collection

Beautiful plants captured by a talented photographer

Ceropegia woodii

Today we’re visiting with Alex Saint in Florida, who is not only a plant lover but a photographer, as you’ll see from the gorgeous images he’s captured. (For more, check out his instagram: @lordsaint_)

Monstera adansoniiAlex says this little Monstera adansonii planted up in October of 2020 will always be a favorite of his because it reminds him of his late grandpa.

Ceropegia woodiiIt is easy to see how string of hearts (Ceropegia woodii) got its common name, its long trailing stems dotted with these beautiful heart-shaped leaves.

Philodendron gloriosumA Philodendron gloriosum is living up to its name. That is truly a glorious-looking plant!

Philodendron Pink PrincessPhilodendron ‘Pink Princess’ has distinctive irregular patches of pink variegation.
