Albert's survival guide

A genius in his own right

Named after the famous Einstein, Albert is our very own (less critically acclaimed) genius. Reportedly, he was vital in the development of a vaccine for a certain recent deadly virus, as well as the newest and best quantum processor. We don’t question it at this point. Albert definitely has his Eureka! moments, but they coincide with his lapses in judgment (i.e. putting his pot on backwards and only noticing when he strolled into the office). It’s okay, Albert! We still love you.

How to care for Albert

When life gives you lemons... you must have one of these in your home because that's how you get 'em! The Citrus Ponderosa is actually known to be a cross between a regular lemon and a citron which gives the Ponderosa lemon a slightly sweeter taste than what you get with regular lemons. So when life does give you lemons, they better be these sweet tastin lemons. 

In order for your Lemon trees to flourish, put them outside in a bright spot, for example on a balcony or patio. These trees need the night time drops in temperature to start producing fruit!

Got a gift card for my birthday in the gift box (Fred the air plant was much larger than expected!) and after much though and deliberation given how large their assortment is, chose three plants to order. All three arrived earlier than expected and in fairly good condition, in very well planned packaging that even included a heat pack. They were a bit smushed but they seemed healthy - no pests - and are doing well now. The only problem I had was with just how full the pots were which made them a bit difficult to transport and water especially since they were pretty large given their pot size; definitely have to repot them within the year. Oh and the ceramic pot I ordered as well came and looks very cute! It's a touch small for their nursery pots, they fit inside but with a bit of a lip over the top, but otherwise look great. Definitely would recommend and plan on buying more in the future :D Read less

I ordered 2 plants in late January 2022 which were posted to me in the Okanagan. They arrived within a couple days with a heat pack that was still emitting heat. They were well packed and look healthy. Thanks for the gift of green in the dark of winter! Read less

So stoked on our order! It came in quick, in great conditions and the plants are lovely. They also use cardboard and brown paper, which is great! There was no plastic in the packaging. They even added 2 succulents as a gift in our order. Kelsi, one of their staff member even reached out to me to make sure I didn't make a mistake because not all the pots I ordered fit the plants I ordered (it was for some plants that I already owned, but how sweet?!) First time we purchased for Plantsome and definitely not the last. Great experience!! Read less
