'Snow Queen' Super White Marble Queen (triple planted) - Auckland pick-up only
One of one. This is for the exact plant shown. This plant is pick up only. Please read the Plant Pick Up FAQ's at the end.
Super White 'Snow Queen' Marble Queen (Epipremnum auereum)
Super White Marble Queen or 'Snow Queen' are different names used to describe a very high-level variegated Marble Queen. This plant comes from my Snow Queen mother plant who manages to put out extreme high-level white leaves while also being a fast grower and not losing any leaves (as some Snow Queen are prone to when variegation gets this high). She'll still pop out the occasional half moon or greener leaf which is important to support the very white leaves.
Growing well with no leaf loss or browning. Currently adjusted to normal indoor conditions, so will settle in much better than coming from nursery or greenhouse conditions. New growth starts out creamy yellow and lightens to white as leaves mature.
Although you'll see four stems in the photos, it's actually triple planted. Growing fast and putting out gorgeous creamy-white growth. The creamy leaves will all mature to white over time. Really good, healthy root system on this one too.
Currently with two active growth tips but will likely shoot out more over time (although 'growing quickly' for a Snow Queen, being so variegated, means growth is slower than the greener Queens). Being triple planted creates a quite incredible mature plant and avoids those long vines that get straggly and leggy if they start off with a single growth tip like most do. Instead there's the potential to be a really full, lush, stunning plant. Already almost 27cms tall x 22cms wide including the pot.
All photos are of the same plant, which is the exact plant you'll receive. Currently in an 11cm Teku clear pot that allows you to easily monitor moisture level and root health at a glance. Well rooted in Bioleaf Chunky Mix premium potting mix. Raised on GT CCS root fertiliser, and now shifted to GT Foliage Focus complete fertiliser, at 5mls per litre, every time they're watered.
In need of a stake or support soon if you'd like it to climb (which gives you bigger leaves and faster growth). Get your plant along with a Botanopia plant stake now, which fits the current pot size, or upgrade to a Grow Vertical when you pot up to a 14cm or larger pot. Best not to repot for at least 4 weeks after arrival.
Make sure to read the plant pick-up FAQ's below before you buy.
Marble Queen care
I find these girls medium care, similar but not quite as easy care as Philodendron or greener Pothos. Brighter (but still indirect) light is ideal to maintain high variegation and prevent reverting to green, especially with such highly-variegated genes like this one has.
Fast growers in the right conditions, and do better with fertiliser. Support pole like a Botanopia plant stake when small or Grow Vertical will give you bigger leaves, plus faster, bushier, less leggy growth. I use GT Foliage Focus fertiliser at 5mls GT per 1 litre water.
Keep lightly moist when young, drier when older. Clear pots help avoid over-watering. Marble's thrive in aroid mix. I use the Bioleaf brand for mine. If / when you do pot up a size, that mix also helps reduce transplant stress. I'd go up to a 14cm clear pot next when ready.
They prefer higher humidity than their all-green cousins. Above 60% humidity is ideal, but at least try to maintain above 40% to help avoid browning. Warm conditions are ideal also, around the range of 18 to 30 degrees.
*Plant pick up FAQ's*
Please read before you buy
Please only purchase provided you are happy with the following requirements. Please read in full before you buy. If your question isn't answered below, ask first before you buy...
I want it! How do I get this plant?
Add to cart then check out like normal. It doesn't matter what address you enter when you checkout, so enter your address like usual. You will see one of the shipping options is PLANT PICK-UP. You can only select this option if you have a plant included with your order. This plant cannot be shipped to you because covid combined with recent long weekends is causing unpredictable shipping times, so I don't want to risk shipping plants at the moment. Once paid for, it's all yours! Be sure to read the rest of the pick up FAQ's below before you go ahead.
Where is pick-up from?
One Tree Hill in Auckland. Once you've completed your order, I'll email you to arrange a pick-up day and time that suits you. Pick-up is required within 1 week (7 days) of ordering. Pick-up times are between 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday, and 9am to midday Saturday. I'll let you know the address and my mobile number after you order. Keep an eye out for the email, usually sent the same day depending on what time of day you order.
Please note it will be contactless pick-up, so your plant will be placed safely under shelter for you to collect, on the day and time you choose. Just text me when you're on your way. Only your plant will be waiting for you, with your name on the box :)
What if I my pick-up plans change?
If pick-up needs to change closer to the time, all good, I'll give you my mobile number so we can keep in touch. As long as pick up is still completed within 7 days of ordering.
Can I order other products for pick-up also?
Yes, you can. Provided you have a pick-up plant in your order, you can add other products to the same order, and collect everything at the same time. However without a plant in your order, you cannot do 'click and collect' or pick-up.
Can you put a plant 'on hold' for me?
No holds or rain-checks sorry. Only once your order is paid for is your plant is all yours. Adding to cart does not 'save' a plant for you, or block others from buying it. I can't hold a plant. It really is 'first in, first served' and orders do need to be completed and paid for on the website.
Can someone else pick my order up for me?
Yes, they can. The only two people who know what day and time your plant will be ready for collection is you and me, so if you want to share those details with someone else so they can collect for you, all good, that's up to you. Just ask them to text me when they're on their way.
Can I change which plant I get? Or choose from a few options?
The plant you will receive is the exact plant in the photos only. Every plant I list is one of one, with each plant photographed separately, so cannot be changed for a different plant.
Shipping and Delivery FAQ's
FLAT RATE SHIPPING
Flat rate shipping is $5.90 nationwide (or $9.50 for rural). Order as many products as you like without paying anything extra for shipping. The only exceptions are plants and fragile or oversize products (like handmade pottery and coffee table books), which have their own rates.
For $2 you can upgrade to signature required. Well worth it for anything valuable or limited edition that can't be replaced. Choosing signature required gives both of us the ability to claim if anything goes wrong with the courier. Signature required is flat rate $7.90 nationwide (or $12.50 for rural).

"Super impressed with this business. Something that is lost nowadays, is customer service. This however is not the case with Anna from “Love that Leaf”. Very happy with my purchase, very happy with the product information provided and very happy with the quick shipping and great packaging. Thanks!" Melayna Anderson
"By far the best customer care I've had in a long time. Website is such a wealth of information and the email with instructions for use after my purchase was fantastic. The pipette for measuring the correct amount was such a great inclusion, and the personalised message on the package was very cool. Definitely my go to shop for plant supplies now. Thanks Love That Leaf! A+++" Karyn Wilson
