Here are my requisite pics of yesterday's shopping haul...
Two pretty Begonias.
Plectranthus, a Coleus, various Begonias, variegated Tradescantia fluminensis (with an Aptenia between them.)
From on the left above, fairly ordinary Begonias, but one has a Pelargonium, one has a Plectranthus. I was going to get one of each of those also, so these are a bit smaller, but come with bonus Begonias.
Cute little ornamental peppers my son picked out.
FWIW, it was 90 degrees, 99% humidity when we went there yesterday about 2 PM. Walking into the greenhouse part felt like walking into Hades. It was at least 10 degrees hotter in there, and so humid it was hazy, literally took more effort to walk through so much humidity. Fans blowing. All of these plants were in there, as well as the giant mama of most of these, and many other tropicals and succulents. Every inch of me was covered with sweat by the time I finished. If that's what a tropical jungle is like, I don't think I really do want to see these plants in their natural habitat. Goodbye, silly fantasy!
It's not right around the corner, but love this mom'n'pop place I 'found' recently! All of their house plants seem to be on-site props. All of this was $22. I'll take the camera next time. They have some very cool, OLD specimens although the store seems new within the past few years. The sweet kid working there actually knew what I was talking about last time when I asked him if the plants matched the botanical name I wanted to give them. Next time it's not too hot to think, I must talk with him s'more. He might be the propagate-o-phile.
What are you finding?
