Following mickeysplants on Instagram I knew to expect trendy houseplants—this is LA after all, and a much warmer climate than my own.
There were so many fabulous jungle cactus! I really wanted to take this Lepismium cruciforme home with me, but since we were flying I left it behind. Thankfully I've since found once almost as fabulous here in Portland.
I did grab one of these Rhipsalis paradoxa and managed to get it home without breaking it.
So many Selenicereus chrysocardium!
And happy Epiphyllum anguliger.
What a great way to grow staghorns, these were $45 ea...
We were there at dusk, just before closing, so I was shopping and snapping photos rather frantically. Hopefully you get an idea just how dense the inventory is.
Looking back at the entrance.
And looking up! I was very enamored with the planters on the roof, these are more of the same you saw in the first photo, at the top of this post.
I wonder if these are replanted often, or if they stay this good looking year-round?
Also, I wonder if Andrew would be okay with my putting planters up on our roof? (fat chance)
So many plants!
Of course I had to take a peek into the employees only area, just a peek!
I think it was about here that I realized I'd lost Andrew in the plants.
And I almost missed this whole section at the front of the nursery!
I saw a few Deuterocohnia brevifolia for sale during this trip, these were going for $35, $85 for the large one.
Finally, there was a small shop selling gear, I almost bought a t-shirt. Should you find yourself in the area I highly recommend a visit...
