I visited with friends who were also ready for a little plant-centered socially distant visiting, here's Ann, the Amateur Bot-Ann-ist, don't you love her sweatshirt? ("Tell me about your plants")
I really wanted to abscond with this box of goodness, but of course I did not.
There are elephant pots, at the Potted Elephant. I think I photographed this one the last time I visited (in 2019), it's a fabulous combination with the bright orange aloe.
Agave applanata 'Cream Spike'
Some fine euphorbia...
For some reason I used to to not like aeonium when they get kinda tall and rangy like this, now I think they're my very favorite version of aeoniums.
Oh! It's a apotspot pot, it's hot.
Jungle cactus propagation...
And now we're in another greenhouse.
I love the thick white lines on the edge of this epiphyllum.
I was about to say that if this AMAZING hanging container of Rhipsalis ramulosa ever goes missing don't check my garden, when I remembered the horrid incident that occurred last year when someone did serious theft of plants from the Potted Elephant. So I should not joke about something like that, which I would never do. But I do covet this plant!
This is one of those plants where I know the name but cannot think of it at the moment.
Some of my fellow plant folks that day, from left to right Cory Paul, one of the owners of the Potted Elephant, Ann, Theo (The Fuchsietum) and Dan (PDXBot)—Evan (The Practical Plant Geek) was with us too but somehow escaped my camera.
In another greenhouse there were a few monstera...
And interesting nepenthes.
Jewel orchids (Ludisia discolor)
And things I can not ID...
The final greenhouse includes a small retail area (shopping by appointment) and the back half is their shipping department.
Myrtillocactus geometrizans ($275)
I can't remember how much this dark sansevieria was going for. I really want one of these, but I'm too old school to spend the $ they cost these days. It's a sansevieria for god sakes!
Finally, this little cutie (Syngonium rayii) spoke to me, thankfully Ann took it home. Tomorrow I'll share a few "inspirational" photos and what I bought.
