Do you have an African Fantasy thaumatophyllum?

Almost a year ago, I obtained a seedling #wishlistplant and it continues to be one of the rarest plants in my collection, on a purely availability basis.

The plant is a #Thaumatophyllum β€œAfrican Fantasy” formerly known as #Philodendron β€œAngela” and she’s beginning to be a bit of a beast!

What are some of the rarest plants in your collection? Rare doesn’t have to be trendy or expensive, just uncommon.

Have you ever seen an African Fantasy for sale? Do you own one?

I hadn’t even heard of this plant! So cool! πŸŒ±β˜€οΈβ€οΈ I don’t really have any rare I don’t think but my outdoor Japanese maple is pretty spectacular, and I have a gorgeous Chinese evergreen β€œsparkling Sarah” that took a while to find. πŸŒ±β˜€οΈβ€οΈ
Yah that's super cool. It's probably one of my cacti or succulents. My Euphorbia poissonii (Variegata) is what I think off the top of my head.
I've missed ya bruh. @ForFoxSake !! 🫢🏿
Mine aren't so rare, but I've been slowly knocking off wishlist Dark Leaf Philos:

Philo Majesty
Philo Dark Lord
Philo Bloody Mary
Philo Royal Queen

The Philo Thai Sunrise, Snowdrift, Strawberry Shake, and Red Moon, are recent wishlist snags as well!

I'm currently in a πŸ’– affair with Hoyas and Aglaonemas... so stay tuned! 🀣
@AwesomePlants loved Hoyas until they started blooming inside and that was awesome too until they started falling everywhere. They go crazy!!!! It just wouldn’t stop throwing new blooms all over the place. I’m over Hoya now lol
I haven't yet. But if I do then I'm buying it for sure.πŸ’«βœ¨οΈβ€οΈβ€πŸ”₯πŸŒ±β˜˜οΈπŸ‘πŸ™ƒ
@ForFoxSake AH you’re so lucky!!! I want my Hoya to bloom everywhere for me
My rarest plant would have to be my Monstera Albo πŸ˜… that’s about it for me πŸ₯Ή
Honestly I don’t think any of mine are really uncommon now. I have got a lot of my plants from one of the big hardware stores we have in Australia. We even have Thai constellation in them now. I guess if anything I would say some of my cacti or Hoya. We have very tough restrictions and we can not import plants so they can be very expensive in Australia. I watch alot of YouTube and I am shocked with some of the prices in the states.
@RealSimpleMama I love Japanese maple so much but we rent so I can’t own one the way I want.. I wish so hard for that one day
I don’t think any of my houseplants are particularly rare. A couple might be considered uncommon, but not much beyond that. My patio plants, on the other hand, are a different story πŸ˜‚. I’m not sure which is the rarest, but the one that’s the most unusual in my eyes is the Striped Fantastic daylily. Both the leaves and the flowers are variegated.
I've been racking my brain but I really don't have many rare plants. Or they were but now they aren't.

I've been really into sawtooth philos lately. I have a boogie, croc and some ROF. I'm on the look out for a Pluto which apparently was really popular a while ago and it harder to find now. I think I will always lust after caramel marble but I can't bring myself to spend that kind of $$$.
@PlantMompy my marble has been dormant since last summer. Certainly frustrating
The amount of patience plants take is unreal sometimes. I can't imagine if I had a plant that incredible and it was like "I'm going to go to sleep for months, TTFN." I would probably keel over. Props for still standing!
@PlantMompy makes me respect the price point they grow soooooo slow that it’s not like you can just prop it like crazy
Hey! I'm a little late to the party, but I think my rarest plant has to be my Monstera Mint. I'm honestly not sure if she is a large form or NOID but I love her
@PlantMompy If you want a Pluto I know a lady, lol. I'm in a couple purge groups on FB and one of my favorite sellers usually has them in various sizes. It's one of my favorite varietals so I have a big one and I love her!

If you want I can find one of her sales and send you the link.
@tmbryant37 your monstera mint is amazing! I love all plants minty 😍

As for the Pluto, thank you! Unfortunately, Greg is the only social media I have. Lol
@ForFoxSake WOW Casey!!! That is a beauty!! πŸ’šπŸ’š
I don't think I have anything super rare
