The Christmas cactus is everywhere during the holiday season, with good reason. It's a blooming succulent that is easy to care for, has gorgeous flowers, and when properly tended can live up to 100 years! That's right! This plant can survive for decades, adding color to your holidays for generations. It makes a great holiday gift, too. That's a pretty great investment for a plant that's as inexpensive and un-fussy as the Christmas cactus! There are several different types that all are typically called "Christmas cactus," though some varieties look a little different and actually bloom at other times of year (such as Easter). But the care is the same for all of them. Here's what you need to know about this popular, easy-care plant. Once you bring your new cactus home, you'll want to leave it in its pot. Your Christmas cactus won't need to be re-potted for a few years because they actually bloom better when "pot bound." When you do replant, choose a pot that's only a tiny bit larger than the last one (maybe an inch or two more in diameter). Use well-draining potting soil, and make sure the pot has drainage holes. Christmas cactus plants need bright, indirect sun. They'll burn in direct sunlight, so if you're placing yours indoors near a west or south-facing window, make sure it's filtered with a sheer curtain. They like humidity, so if your house is dry indoors in winter, put it on a tray of pebbles, or place it near other plants. Great new is that we have so many pretty ones in stock, come grab yours today.

11/10/2022

Cyclamen are one of our favorite winter flowering indoor plants. They make awesome little hostess gifts.. They're cheerful and happy and perky (which are pretty much all basically the same thing). And they will bloom for a good 6-8 weeks as long as you take care of them. They prefer bright, indirect sunlight and a cooler location. Ideally, they love a place that is 50-60 degrees F, but since you probably don't live in that cold of a house, either a windowsill or a chillier location in the house will do. Water when dry to the touch, but be careful not to over-water. Once a week, I place them in a shallow dish and let the plants "suck up" water through the roots. Watering from above can cause rot. To keep plants re-blooming, cut spent flowers close to the base.

11/02/2022

Aeschynanthus radicans, more commonly known as a lipstick plant, is a popular and striking tropical evergreen perennial, often grown as a houseplant. It gets its name from the vibrant red and tubular flowers that appear above a burgundy bud. These flowers grow in clusters and, along with the waxy, glossy, green foliage, they have a cascading, vine-like habit. Even with its impressive, tropical appearance, the lipstick plant is generally considered to be a houseplant that's relatively easy to care for. It's all about just getting it right in terms of lighting and moisture levels. Although these plants are epiphytic in their native habitat (growing on trees and deriving moisture and nutrients from the air), when grown as houseplants, they are generally planted in an ordinary potting mix. However, they are sensitive to overwatering, and the potting mix should be watered very moderately. Lipstick plants will do well in any spot that receives bright filtered light and where a relatively high level of humidity can be maintained—either through use of a humidifier or regular misting. Avoid placing them near windows exposed to direct sunlight that can scorch them. Lipstick plants appreciate bright but filtered light. Too much direct sunlight can cause leaf scorch, and too little will result in a poor display of flowering and leaf drop. Moderate watering is best. Ideally, you want to avoid allowing the potting medium to dry out completely and offer water when the top couple of inches are no longer damp.

10/31/2022

The Silver Satin (Scindapsus pictus) is native to Southeast Asia and has the reputation of being one of the easiest houseplants to keep alive. It is known for its heart-shaped matte leaves, splashed with spots of iridescent gray, and fast-growing trailing vines. A mature Silver Satin can grow vines between 4-10 feet long depending on conditions. 

The genus name is derived from the Greek word 'skindapsos', which is said to mean “upon tree trunks” in reference to the plants growth habit. In the wild, Scindapsus grows as an epiphyte climbing along the trunks and limbs of trees attaching themselves with aerial roots. Therefore, it's a great specimen to train to climb up a coir pole, or placed on a ledge/shelf to cascade over as a trailing plant!

They thrive in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.

Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

This plant can be toxic if ingested. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets. pictus

10/27/2022

Native to the Cebu island in the Philippines, the Cebu blue pothos (Epipremnum pinnatum 'Cebu Blue') is a unique variety of pothos that is highly sought after due to its stunning foliage. Characterized by thin and silvery green-blue leaves, this Instagram-worthy pothos is delightfully easy to keep happy indoors. There are two unique growth phases of the Cebu blue pothos: juvenile and mature. The juvenile phase is the most recognizable and is characterized by the familiar small, elongated oval leaves that are silvery blue-green in color. The mature phase is usually only observed in plants that are grown outdoors and is characterized by larger green leaves that develop fenestrations over time. To encourage strong, healthy growth, choose a location for your Cebu blue pothos that receives medium to bright indirect light. Unlike other varieties of pothos such as golden pothos or jade pothos, Cebu blue pothos do not do well in low light for extended periods of time. It is also best to avoid direct sunlight as their leaves burn easily. Allow the top 1 to 2 inches of soil to dry between waterings and then water thoroughly, allowing the excess water to drain from the bottom of the pot. The Cebu blue pothos can handle some extended periods between watering if needed but it will grow best with regular watering. Keep in mind that in the winter months, you should cut back on watering slightly to avoid overwatering while the plant is dormant.

Pretty plant ALERT…. PHILO MICANS ARE IN STOCK…Do you have a Mican?!? It’s a fave in the shop… Micans is a type of philodendron, which is a large genus of plants in the Araceae family. There are tons of different types of philodendron, and they can look very different. Philodendron micans looks a lot like the typical heart-leaf philodendron you might be used to seeing in local nurseries. What sets the philodendron micans apart from the traditional heart-leaf philodendron, though, is its beautiful velvet finish. In fact, the common name for the philodendron micans is the velvet leaf philodendron. The leaves have a greenish-purplish finish with a bit of a shimmer (though not as much of a shimmer as the scindapsus pictus silver satin pothos has!). Avoid overwatering your velvet leaf philodendron and you’ll be fine. That means watering it again when the top inch or so of soil dries out. Be careful to not let the soil dry out too much—a sure sign of this is when the soil begins to contract and pull inwards away from the edges of the planter. While velvet leaf philodendron is very patient with all types of indoor humidity levels, you’ll find that the leaves are bigger and healthier when humidity levels are a bit higher.

Pothos can tolerate medium to bright indirect light, and likes to be watered when the soil is dry.

09/29/2022

Scindapsus Treubii is a rare, green houseplant that is not easily found but is a major hit in the world of botany, especially houseplants. It comes in two varieties: Scindapsus Moonlight and Scindapsus Dark form. Moonlight leaves are more milky-green with a hint of silver in the center of the leaf, whereas Dark form has more blackish leaves without any silver tint to it. This one is the hardest to find… ps we have ✌️in stock!! Overall, Scindapsus Treubii Moonlight plants are fairly fast-growing plants and can grow from cuttings into mature plants in a matter of months if given the right amount of care and environment to grow in. Scindapsus Treubii care requires a warm room with bright indirect lights. They can grow well in a regular potting mix and do not require frequent re-potting. You can water them once the soil feels dry and mist them once in a while to provide that extra moisture in the air.

09/20/2022

You might be most familiar with eucalyptus plants (Eucalyptus cinerea) as a favorite food of the koala. This evergreen tree can grow to nearly 60 feet high in its natural Australian environment. But when planting eucalyptus in home gardens, it usually remains small at around 6 to 10 feet high. It features reddish-brown bark that peels on the smaller branches. The leaves are a silvery to blue-green color, and they give off the plant’s distinct menthol-like fragrance when bruised. Eucalyptus trees are best planted in the spring. Eucalyptus likes a lot of light, so settle your plant somewhere in your landscape that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. Likewise, eucalyptus plants grown indoors should be kept near a bright window, preferably one that faces south. Eucalyptus is somewhat drought-tolerant once it's established. However, it really doesn't like to be left dry for long periods, and doing so might cause it to drop leaves. A good rule of thumb is to water when you can stick your finger into the soil and feel dryness at your fingertip. This often will amount to watering weekly if you haven't had rainfall, especially for container plants.

Most houseplants come from tropical regions of the world, so they do amazing when you place them outside during summer to soak up some extra humidity and warmth. But just like it's best to gradually move them outdoors in spring to avoid sunburn it’s important to give your plants a little extra care before you transition them back to indoor life. While some types of plants can manage better with big changes to light and temperature, others may throw the botanical equivalent of a temper tantrum!
1. Keep an Eye on Temperature: Make sure to move your houseplants inside again before night temps get below 45°F. Any colder and you're likely to see damage, especially on tender new leaves and stem tips.
2. Get Rid of Pests: While the great outdoors provides plants with plenty of humidity and warmth over the summer, it can also expose them to more pests. Some common ones are scale and spider mites. Before moving your houseplants indoors, first check for pests— we an amazing spray (Dead AF) that we recommend!
3. Cut Back on Water and Fertilizer: While they don't go completely dormant, many houseplants naturally slow their growth during the colder months. This means they don't need as much water or fertilizer as they did during the warm growing season.
4.Provide Light and Humidity: please make sure your plants are getting light, they still do need bright, indirect light. Winter days tend to be shorter, artificial grow lights work amazing! And while your plants don't need as much watering, they do appreciate a little extra humidity, given that most heated homes have very dry air in winter. Small humidifiers work amazing for them!

08/22/2022

Welcome to our JUNGLE.. stop by the store today from 10-5pm and let the girls teach you about the amazing Staghorns we have in store!! There are dozens of species of staghorn ferns, and until recently, they were quite rare. Now though--thanks to species native to Australia, Platycerium bifurcatum, that is relatively easy to care for and propagate--they’re increasingly popular house plants. Though you can find young staghorn ferns sold in pots, mature plants need to be mounted to a board or hung in a hanging basket. Why? Because, like air plants, staghorn ferns are epiphytic plants, which means that in they grow on other plants or trees in their natural growing environments. Fern leaves are actually called fronds, and staghorn ferns have two types. The first, and most prominent, is the “antler” frond - these are the large, bifurcated leaves that shoot out of the center of the plant, and from which staghorn ferns get their names, since they resemble the antlers of deer or moose. Spores develop on the lower these fronds, and look a bit like brown fuzz -- don’t remove the spores! This is a no-no in staghorn fern care. The second type of staghorn fern frond is called the shield frond. These are the round, hard plate-like leaves that surround the base of the plant. Their function is to protect the plant roots, and take up water and nutrients. These fronds start out green, but eventually turn brown and dry up. This is a totally normal part of the staghorn fern life-cycle -- in fact, this is one of the most common misconceptions in staghorn fern care. A brown shield frond does not mean your staghorn fern is dying, and dried shield fronds should never be removed! The final part of the staghorn fern is the root ball. Since stags are epiphytes, their root systems are fairly minimal, and help the plant attach to its home. Because the roots are so minimal, staghorn ferns need extensive drainage and are particularly susceptible to root rot.

RARE PLANT ALERT— we have 6 in STOCK! Have you ever wondered what the lovechild of a Monstera and a succulent might look like? Look no further, because that is what the Monstera Peru embodies with its prolific growth, stunning foliage, and rubbery, almost leather-like leaves. As a hemiepiphytic vine, Monstera Peru is a super versatile species, able to climb, trail and basically look fabulous in any home. North facing windowsills will be ideal for most homes, though the succulent-like leaves of Monstera Peru are more robust than most and can handle sporadic direct sunlight.
So, an East facing window should work too where they’ll receive some softer early morning sunlight. Despite being a tropical plant, the thick, waxy leaves of the Monstera Peru hint to its ability to retain water for long periods of time. This paired with the fact that it’s a hemiepiphytic vining species (it climbs, but still plants shallow roots in the soil for support) means it’s used to getting quickly drenched and dried in the wild – not sat in the wet pot of an over-eager plant lover.

For us at home, this typically means the plant needs to be watered less than its tropical cousins (even within the Monstera genus). We only have 6, so you better get on it!

Rooted from Yarrow Acres is Franklin’s original “gardener’s gift store.”

In 1994, owner Sheri Gramer moved from her herb farm of 6 years in Grass Lake, Michigan, carrying a sign from the farm with the name “Yarrow Acres” on it, to open her store with that very name in Downtown Franklin, TN.

Very invested in the community, Sheri became one of the original members of the Downtown Franklin Association and one of the five women to create and launch Wine Down Main Street in 2000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Middle, TN.

After moving a couple times around downtown, Yarrow Acres settled into its current location at 424A Main Street in 1998, where the business has grown for the last 28 years.

At the beginning of 2022, Sheri announced her daughter Lindsey would be taking over the business.

“Lindsey was very instrumental in keeping us afloat during the shutdown and helping Yarrow Acres transition into the plant store that it is now: Rooted from Yarrow Acres!” shared Sheri. “I’m not selling the business and walking away. I still come in once a week and get my hands dirty working. I still eat at my favorite lunch spots and see some of my favorite people.”
