My Dive into Finding Goth Plants on Etsy

Lately I’ve been on what I call a “goth plant” kick; it’s crazy to me to find these beautiful black plants that are actually flourishing (and their black leaves are NOT a sign that they’re long dead). 

I know this goes without saying but, the internet is freaking amazing. I love that you can now buy plants online that range from clippings to ginormous fully grown monstrosities, to exotic and rare plants that would never be found in the local nurseries (though you should always support them, too!). 

This post is all about supporting those plant dealers on Etsy who are making a go of it and offering deep, dark foliage to the world. I’m going to include my own purchases here, as well as some that I’ve been eyeing as rewards for achieving goals (the only way I can actually curtail my spending while being motivated to get things done!).

Raven ZZ

ZZ plants have been my saving grace for trying to find houseplants that can survive my dark-ass purple bedroom, so when I found out there was a black ZZ plant, I jumped on that shit. Raven ZZs are actually deep purple, but they’re so dark that you can barely notice the difference. I love that they’re super hardy and can handle a lot of abuse and low light, making them perfect starter plants. I got mine from RiverHouseSales.

Black Magic Alocasia

I’ve had mixed results with elephant ears (okay, I’ve killed them all) because I didn’t realize they’re tropical plants that love humidity. I was nervous to get both this and the Colocasia since my track record hasn’t been great. But you know…what the hell, let’s give it a go. I love the deep black hue of the leaves, but they only turn black once they’ve matured so my starter plant is only a little bit goth now. I got her from TheGreenEscape. (The listing seems to have expired, so check her page for new listings!)

Colocasia

The full-grown version of this is downright stunning, but like my Black Magic this is also an elephant ear, so I’ve got to make sure it’s getting the proper humidity it needs to flourish (this and Black Magic are currently on a shelf in my downstairs bathroom to soak up those shower vapors). Right now he’s still green since it’s a starter plant but it’s slowly begun to darken which I am PUMPED for. I also got it at TheGreenEscape

Just a heads up: I’m linking both the listing and the individual seller as I know stocks can change and listings can expire.
