Our Story

Born in the guest bedroom of a downtown Detroit apartment in 2020 Rare Plant Fairy has quickly become Michigan’s premier grower of rare aroids, hoyas, and other exotic tropical plants.

We started as avid rare plant collectors — we know what excites other collectors and are always ahead of the latest trends. Most of our plants are grown and propagated in-house, but we also collaborate with growers worldwide to bring new, sustainably sourced cultivars and species to market.

We pride ourselves on catering to the needs of customers in every climate. Our expert packers carefully wrap every plant to ensure they arrive in the best possible condition. Are they going to the Rockies in December? Insulation and heat packs it is. How about Paris in the spring? We’ll make sure the phytosanitary certificate is in order. Our indoor nursery replicates most collectors’ home environmental conditions to reduce stress on our leafy friends.

Our Commitment

Rare Plant Fairy is committed to protecting the planet. We source 100% of our electricity through solar and wind via DTE Energy’s MIGreenPower program.

Our indoor nursery and shop in east Detroit’s Islandview neighborhood is temperature and humidity controlled and generates the cleanest filtered water in the industry. The result is thriving plants, a minimal carbon footprint, and happy customers!
