Living Memories of Maui
Bring a piece of paradise home!



Aloha and welcome to the Living Memories of Maui website! Each lava plant is unique in many ways, but especially in the size, shape, and color of the volcanic rock that it is growing on. So if you are checking out this website while you are here on Maui, this is why I suggest coming down to one of the two Maui locations in person to hand select the plants of your choice. Along with a wide variety of up to 15 different types of Lava Rock plants. When in season you will find a variety of up to eight different colors of potted Plumeria, including the more unique Evergreen Plumeria. If you want to have the plant of your choice shipped home, it will be set aside so that you receive the same one you saw in person. These plants are airport ready to leave Hawaii! There are about 50 different plants that I offer for you to take home from Maui, and if you’re already home, you can view pictures and prices on the Lava Rock Plants page, and call in your order with me over the phone.

Living Memories of Maui is owned by Mike Medina. Here is his story about the beginnings of Living Memories of Maui.

I moved to Maui in December of 1999 with my wife, who brought us here with her job as a nanny. She has since moved up the ladder in the Early Childhood field.  After Co-Directing and Teaching at a Preschool she has worked at for about 12 years, she them took on a new role on Oahu at The UH Manoa as teacher and student, pursing her Masters Degree. Now she's back on Maui and very busy in her field of Early Childhood. When I moved here, I began work in the botany trade at a greenhouse in Lahaina where I was trained in the art of bonsai with the Schefflerra Plant. I continued my college education here, receiving my degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. After working for about eight and a half years at that greenhouse in Lahaina, I opened Living Memories of Maui on May 1, 2008. With the help of friends and family in 2013 I built a certified greenhouse in Kula where I specialize in plants that grow in Lava Rock.. As you explore the website further you will see the passion I have for plants and for your success growing them.  The biggest reward I get for what I do are your testmonials, some of which have been posted.  I now work with a team of growers here on Maui, Oahu, and the Big Island to provide you with the best quality and lowest prices around!



Bought a plumeria here and took it home to Arkansas and it bloomed the same year! Very beautiful! — Gassville, AR

Mike is my plant guy! I have a beautiful collection of tropicals growing in my basement (yes, my basement!). It has a heat source (furnace room) and a red/blue grow light. One of the Evergreen Plumerias is getting ready to bloom, my Bird of Paradise I started from a seed is now seven years old and has leaves 5′ tall! … — Portland, OR

I love my plant! It is doing great in Modesto! — Carissa R., Modesto, CA

I bought a tillandsia plant last May. It is easy to care for and reminds me of Maui when I see it! Great purchase! — Plainfield, IL

Purchased a rabbit’s foot fern over a year ago. It’s been a great indoor plant, living in moderate light. The fern is very healthy. It was shipped from Maui to San Francisco and arrived in great shape! Very happy with purchase and service! — San Francisco, CA

Airport plumerias didn’t work at all, but this one [from Living Memories of Maui] took off and we got flowers the first year! — Rog & Alice, Denver, CO

I could never keep a plant alive but I took a lava plant home, put it in the bathroom and next to a glass window and it’s going great. A touch of Maui in Idaho! — Anonymous

I bought my plant in Dec. ’08 and made the journey back to Denver, CO. I am a classic "plant killer"! I have not been able to keep other plants alive. This is the ONLY plant I have been able to keep alive with EASE! … Brought my aloha home with me! — Davina O., Denver, CO

I bought a tillandsia plant last May. It is easy to care for and reminds me of Maui when I see it! Great purchase! — Plainfield, IL

XMas ’08 bought four different plants and had them shipped. They were there the day after we got home. The Anthurium is now blooming and the others are happy and healthy. Would totally recommend plants from here! Mahalo! — Debbie S., Des Moines, WA

I bought a macadamia nut tree in November and it’s been very happily growing in my sun room in Alaska right next to my lime tree. Such a blessing to have during our harsh winter months to know that our macadamia lives on. — Katy

Last May, I got a lava plant. When home, I put it into a window and it has done great. I water it one time a week. Every time I look at it, I think of several trips to Maui. I just came back and bought more! They do well in the Washington state weather. Thanks! — Anonymous

Enjoying watching my plumerias grow and bloom! Love it! — Teresa D., Sheridan, WY

We bought an evergreen plumeria last year and had it shipped. It arrived in great shape. It’s thriving beautifully and this year it bloomed for the first time. It’s beautiful. We recommend buying here! — Lakewood, CA
