As some of you know, I moved to Canada to open an exotic plant store. After being there for several weeks, I realized it was not the right place for me to be.

I have moved the store to a Massachusetts location, and am loving it! Nothing like home, right?

Feel free to PM me with special plant orders. (No illegal stuff - do not ask.) (New items will be posted in this thread.)

Please reserve "chatting" to PM's. Thanks!

I can take pictures of anything you would like pictures of - just ask! (I will update with a lot of photos at some point.)

Shipping is a flat $10. to most places. Shipping is a flat $5 for smaller items (seedlings, etc.) Shipping is always done by Priority Mail. You can request overnight, I'll check prices on that. Larger plants will be more.
Delivery or local pick up are welcomed also.
Shipping is available to Canada.

Just divided up my two Walking Irises. These are way cool! They look just like Iris, but the leaves are deep, dark green, and they are evergreen tropical plants. Sporadically throughout the year, they send up a stem (looks like another leaf, but sturdier) which will then have 2 to 5 buds embedded, and they emerge one at a time - the flowers are usually a mix of blue, brown, white all on the same flower. After this flower dies, a new plant grows in its place - the weight of this plantlet sends the stem downwards, and the new plant takes root where it lands. Hence the name, Walking Iris.
I have two *clones* - A guy created hybrids by cross-pollinating two species - a wide-leaf species, and a thin leaf species. He got an assortment of clones from this cross - which means the flower colors are not yet known. They could be white, yellow, red, purple, blue, or a mix of the above. One of my clones has very wide leaves (for a walking iris) and its sibling has very thin leaves (for a walking iris)
I'm letting go some young plants - I will only send those that have roots - $10 each. (For the duration of the sale, $6.00) You can pick between a thin leaf, or a wide leaf.
Thanks!

Death - Is adding new plants considered bumping? If so - I'll save new plants and put them all into one new post per day. Cool?

Senor - I can usually get the white bird of paradise, these are the only two I know of, not counting the "dwarf" orange variety, which actually has much smaller leaves, but is more difficult to find.

I accept paypal, money order, personal checks, and cash. Thanks!
