 One of the most well-loved tropical foliage plants, Ti (rhymes with "tea")  is most often associated with Hawaii and the South Pacific.  Best known for its large, colorful leaves which grow from the stem tips in a circular, star-like pattern.


       Cordyline Ti plants achieve a stunning tropical look indoors or out. This colorful variable species are among the most breath taking foliage plants. These spectacular plants come in many cultivars with glowing colors of red, green, purple, maroon, rose, pink and yellow. With a vast range of colors and sizes, Ti plants or cordylines are crowned as "King of Tropical Foliage".


           Ti plant's relative ease of growing has made Cordylines popular with gardeners, landscapers and collectors alike throughout the world. Cordyline Ti plants are popular because Ti cultivars provide an endless array of various shades of purple, maroon, rose, pink and yellow, as well as green. Intense brightness of many of the colors, including green, under good environmental conditions may be so vivid that plants appear fantastic plastic created. Some cultivars also may be mostly dark purple or maroon with outrageous highlights of rose, yellow or pink common to that cultivar.


      Considered good luck to plant around the perimeter of your property to prevent Madame Pele's lava flows from overrunning your home or just to ward off evil spirits.

    Growing Environment:

    Cordyline Ti  plants enjoy regular water and warm temperatures. Grown in shade, particularly in warmer climates. Protect Ti plants from low humidity or dry winds outdoors. Cordyline Ti plants can be regrown from roots in cold climates. They thrive as a houseplants in containers. Ti plants or Cordylines, are extremely popular worldwide for their intense leaf colors and leaf shapes producing interest and contrasts even in deep shade.

          Ti leaves are also used in Hawaii to wrap food bundles that will then be steamed or boiled. The food wrapped in leaves is called a lau-lau (lau is the Hawaiian for leaf).  Cordyline Ti plants are also used for making simple woven leis and they are made into long strips to use in skirts for dancing hula.....the misnamed grass skirt, is usually made of Ti leaves.

  Color Control

     Color intensity appears to be controlled by temperature, light and fertilizer levels. Levels of carbohydrates are low during summer when night temperatures are high and poor color often occurs during this period. Low light intensity, especially during summer, and high fertilizer levels also reduce color intensity. Best color intensity will occur during the period November through May, if suggested light and fertilizer levels are utilized. During periods of poor coloration, some improvement can often be obtained by increasing light intensity and reducing temperature.

        Light levels can affect appearance of multi-colored ti cultivars. Cultivars like Baby Doll which normally have dark red leaves with a narrow medium red to pink margin, will begin to produce leaves with wider pink margins as the production light intensity is reduced. Suggested level is about 3000 to 3500 ft-c, which will produce plants with good coloration.

Good growth can be obtained with either liquid or slow-release fertilizers at the rate of 2.9 pounds of actual nitrogen per 1000 square feet per month from a 3-1-2 or similar ratio product. Where plants are subject to heavy rainfall or frequent irrigation, the fertilizer level may need to be increased.

The potting medium utilized for ti plant should be of good quality, and provide excellent aeration and water-holding capacity. Amendments should include a low to moderate level of micronutrients such as 1 lb Micromax/yd3 and sufficient dolomite to adjust medium pH to 5.5 to 6.5. The higher pH has been shown to be beneficial in reducing fluoride toxicity.

Suggested air temperatures for best growth are 65°F minimum to 95°F maximum. Ti can tolerate lower and higher temperatures, but growth rate will be reduced.

Family: Agavaceae, Agave

        We will combine shipping for auctions won on the same week paid with same paypal payment.

Payment must be received within 7 days of the auction ending.

Combined Discounts Won Auctions

     For 2-3 winning auctions, the combined discount is 10% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 4-7 winning auctions, the combined discount is 20% of the total Shipping and Handling charges. For 7+ winning auctions, the combined discount is 30% of the total Shipping and Handling charges.

         As each order is packed and prepared separately you will pay the quoted S/H charges individually per item. If you buy the same species in that item it does calculate out the discount (i.e.: additional item $3.61). My stores' combined shipping is built in for same items rather than a varied selection. Includes postage, USDA certification and inspection, proper packing and delivery to Airport for prompt delivery. I can’t really change any of these. If you want one of this and one of that, it gets hard to discount much as each different species requires it's own prep & packing, then at USDA each has to be unwrapped and inspected then repacked. USDA requires me to clean and prepare every last piece before we drive them to the Inspection Station on the other side of the island. It takes my wife and I, a day to pack items and get ready to ship. The whole next day we drive around the island and get inspected (2-3 hours), then drive to the Airport Post Office to drop off. It takes the same work with the same type item if you can understand.
