If you are a houseplant fanatic, then chances are you’ve seen houseplants that say “Exotic Angel” on the care tag.
Exotic Angel isn’t a species of plant, it is actually a brand name. So, an Exotic Angel heartleaf philodendron is just like any other heartleaf philodendron, or is it? Well basically it is, but at the same time it might not be! An Exotic Angel golden pothos might be a better choice over an unnamed golden pothos.
Although it might sound confusing, it’s really not. It’s the same concept of branded food items verses generic food items. While some generic products are close in quality to name brands, some are not. When a manufacturer puts their name on a product they tend to be more concerned in providing a better higher quality product to their customers.
Exotic Angel plants are grown by Hermann Engelmann Greenhouses, one of the oldest and most respected names in foliage plants.
During the 70′s when houseplants became really popular, Engelmann moved his plant facilities located in the north to Florida.
Today, the company has almost 3 million square feet of greenhouses in the “foliage plant capital of the world,” Apopka, Florida.
While many other houseplant growers have tried to establish a private brand, few have been successful. Every Exotic Angel plant comes directly from Engelmann’s greenhouses in Florida.
Exotic Angels all carry the distinctive logo that has became a symbol of innovation and quality around the world. They each come with their care requirements and have the unique color coded tags for light requirements.
The line now consists of over 400 different varieties of houseplants that have been grown indoors and come accimilated to the lower light conditions of most homes.
Their motto “Taking Care Of Our Customers Is Taking Care Of Our Future” reflects their dedication to providing high quality, healthy houseplants. And, the healthier your houseplant is when you bring it home, the better your chances are for having a plant that will give you years of pleasure.
