          Q:What are the white wax spots on the leaves, please? How can I clean them?

          Answer This Question

          A:  The spots are part of the plants leaves. They will not wash off.

          by|Aug 6, 2023

            A:  The spots are from the minerals in the water used at the nursery. Next time they need watering, set them in the bathtub and give them a good spray. Follow up with Neem oil to shine, and protect from critters

            by|Jun 9, 2020

            A:  I believe just calcium deposits. Distilled water should clean them off.

            by|Apr 21, 2021

            A:  Hi AI2012! Thank you for letting us know! We would love to learn how your plant is doing and see a photo of these white spots at questions@costafarms.com. Our plant experts are happy to help!

            by|Jul 9, 2020

              A:  The white spots are mineral deposits with water evaporates out of the plants leaves. They're normal and not harmful. Watering less can reduce them.

                Adorable healthy cat safe plants that come with display pots
                I wanted to add more cat safe plants to my home office. I recently ordered an areca palm from Costa Farms and was very impressed with the size and quality (at a better price than my local greenhouse). So I decided to order these cat friendly plants. Again, like the Areca, they were packaged carefully and arrived quickly in perfect condition. They are a bit smaller than I had envisioned however I did not realize they came with pots ready to display (rather than just the plain rubber pot with holes in the bottom). So that was a pleasant surprise and what a great deal for a two pack of plants that include the pots! I will definitely choose Costa Farms plants in the future for myself and for gifts.

                  I am so incredibly happy with these plants! They came so well packaged and protected. They were double plastic wrapped and even came with a decorative pot that I did not realize I was getting! And yall, these plants are huge! I've already removed 8 pups from them and there are still some baby-babies that are still growing. I always LOVE Costa Farms and have yet to have a bad experience with them!

                    Excellent plant and company
                    I ordered this two-pack from Costa Farms because it was an amazing deal, and they are the highest rated plant supplier on the Home Depot website. They did not disappoint, and I trust them completely to ship healthy plants that are well packaged. When they arrived, the packaging was a bit concerning to me as they arrived with their leaves pushed upward by the paper they were wrapped in, but I think this is inevitable. The leaves drooped for the first couple of weeks simply due to the trauma of moving and had a few black spots, but they put out new leaves from the center and new "pups" all the while. Now, the leaves are perky when well-watered, and it grows very quickly. I have literally 1 dozen propagated cutlets from these two plants that I've only had for the past 2 months. I've included pictures from unpacking/arrival, the first few weeks, and now. The leaves are beautiful. I love these plants, they're very satisfying and easy to grow.

                      Beautiful plants! They suffered a bit from a delay with the delivery but, after determining that they just needed a little water and time, they perked right up again in only a couple days. I love the look of these little pots too, much cuter than the plain black starter pots. They're ready to be displayed right away and would make a lovely housewarming gift.

                      What a fantastic idea! Two plants, one to keep and one to share! A truly thoughtful gift that will be appreciated. The "Costa Farms Pilea Peperomioides Sharing Plant in 6 in. Grower Planter (2-Pack)" is an excellent purchase.I was initially somewhat skeptical about buying living plants through the mail but this came perfectly healthy, and carefully wrapped to protect the plants during shipment.I needn't have worried. Both plants were perfectly healthy when they arrived. My favorite part? It is a natural air purifier!

                      Costa Farms Pilea Peperomioides Sharing Plant in 6 in. Grower Planter (2-Pack) are beautiful plants, that grow up and out and are unique to indoor planting. The plants arrived safely, well packaged in their box. Costa Farms takes great care in packaging the plants. The soil is secured by plastic wrap, and the plant is wrapped in paper to protect the leaves. I lost a couple of leaves but no big deal. Once open the plant began to stretch out, and it looks great! Full and plentiful. I have had nice success with Costa Farms and would not hesitate to recommend them to you. I rate these 5*s out of 5. They will brighten up your home! Thank you Costa Farms for allowing me to receive these plants. Thank you Home Depot Seeds for allowing me to try the product.

                      This 2-pack of Pilea Peperomioides (also known as Chinese Money Plant) from Costa Farms arrived late last night via UPS. Having sat on a hot truck all day I feared the worst. To my surprise when I opened the box I found they were in great shape. Due to the care of the packaging these plants arrived healthy and look great. The plants are about 8" high and have a leaf spread of about 14". The pots they are in look good, you don't have to worry about transplanting them as soon as you get them. This plant is easily propagated, with one purchase you will be giving your whole family one with time.

                      These Costa Farms Pilea Peperomioide Sharing Plants in 6 in. Grower Planter (2-Pack) were packaged very well for shipping and secured these plants very well. I was amazed in the size of these two plants and how very healthy they are. I got these plants for two of my elderly lady friends that really needed a reason to smile in these trying and difficult times. I would highly recommend these plants for your self or just to bring joy and happiness to a friend or neighbor.

                      The photos show much fuller plants, but pileas come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the leaves seemed like they had been being chewed on before they arrived. The plants were packaged VERY well. All in all, these plants have established pretty well, one better than the other. Mailing plants is a difficult business, and I'm happy with the results so far.

                      The plants have dropped leaves since they arrived. I have catered to them but they are pretty sparse. I am teetering on returning them but haven't decided because I was glad to find them. I guess I'll wait it out because I see some babies sprouting. I am hoping the mature leaves that fell off will be replaced by the babies. Fingers crossed.
