Mature Plant or Offset? What's the difference and which one is right for me?
A mature plant is an established, almost full grown plant, usually with nice color if grown in proper light. Ideal for those who want a "finished" plant whether it be for a terrarium, landscape, a collection or a gift. We almost never ship plants that are in the middle of flowering so you can enjoy the bloom.
An offset is a shoot that develops at the base of the plant, rooting to form a new plant identical to its parent. Also called a "pup". Most offsets have none or very little visible root system and usually have very little color. Offsets are recommended for those who want to grow them up to mature plants themselves.
All plants are shipped bare root. What's this?
Mature Plant or Offset - What's the difference?
Mature plants are established plants with a root system, usuall full grown or almost full grown to their maximum capable size.
An offset is a shoot that develops at the base of the plant, rooting to form a new plant identical to its parent. Also called a "pup". Most offsets have less color than mature plants and may or may not have roots. An offset or cutting will also vary, depending on the variety of plant, but will always be ‘ready enough’ to be easily rooted and grown. We follow the basic bromeliad rule for cutting pups which is cutting them off when they are at least half the size of the mother plant. Smaller stoloniferous offsets are good for terrariums. Since offsets cost less than a mature plant, they are recommended for those who want to grow them up to mature plants themselves. Learn more.
