As I have mentioned before I never fail to leave this store without buying something. I just absolutely love all their vases and planters and so far I have been having good luck with all the plants I bring home (knock on wood). The plants I usually bring home from Half Moon Bay nursery usually develop some form of icky bug infestation within a couple of weeks and I just don't know how to deal with them other than throwing them in the garbage. With the plants from Flora Grubb, I haven't had that problem yet.
I ended up buying a Gold Child Ivy paired with an off center grey eliptical planter. I love how they look together.
My new Ivy added to my growing cluster of houseplants.
I bought a spike moss. I'm a little worried about this one. It requires a lot of humidity so this to me means "high maintenance". The last plant I had that required this much humidity was the "corkscrew" and he barely survived after our vacation. I hope this one fares much better.
I also ended up buying a succulent - the spikey Hawthornia. I was never a big fan of this plant but I guess seeing it in so many "terrarium" arrangements, I'm starting to warm up to it. I'm going to replant this in a low charcoal square planter and keep it in our bathroom - this plant is super hardy, can survive in low light and infrequent waterings.
Besides going to Flora Grubb just to buy supplies, I love just going there to see what fun ideas they have. This year, they came up with succulent "Christmas" ornaments. I LOVE IT! Not only do they look cool but after Christmas, you can plant it in your garden. I love the idea of living gifts.
Cute Plant update:Last year I got teeny tiny clipping of another succulent - string of pearls. I had no idea how to propagate so I just stuck it in bowl of water and now it has grown almost 3 inches. I moved it into a cute little ceramic egg holder. It's still in water. I wonder how long it can last like this.
