Scindapsus treubii - Sterling Silver
The Scindapsus Treubii can be divided into two distinct varieties: the Scindapsus Moonlight and the Scindapsus Dark Form. Scindapsus Treubii plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid placing your Scindapsus Treubii outside under direct sunlight as this will scorch its leaves. Conversely, don't put it in an area that's too shady, as this will stunt its growth.

Acacia xanthophloea - seeds
Fever tree is an attractive, semi-deciduous to deciduous tree. The characteristic, almost luminous, lime green to greenish-yellow bark is smooth, slightly flaking, and coated in a yellow powdery substance. If the powdery surface is rubbed away with the finger it will reveal a green bark beneath. It has a slender to spreading, sparse, roundish crown of feathery foliage. The thorns are long, straight and paired. This species occurs in groups in low-lying swampy areas. Because its range coincides with regions where malaria is prevalent, it is called "Fever Tree."
