And what a journey it's been!
There's a time in the life of every plant collector when the collection becomes so overwhelming (and beautiful) that you simply have to share the beauty, open shot and sell off stock :-) That's been the rationale for the most part, and the reason to keep propagating, keep growing and keep buying - MORE PLANTS!
Here's a slideshow of some recent shots of the nursery:
FYI, we're unique for several good reasons because we:
Grow in soil, not cocopeat - healthy, long living, down-to-earth plants here!
Don't fight nature needlessly and instead promote what's happy to grow in Mumbai - think lots of tropical aroids, few dry climate species, fewer succulents...
Are biased towards foliage - an easier choice for low light, typical indoor settings as compared with bright-light dependent flowering plants
Very, very biased towards rare aroids - tropicals that take your breath away!
Won't sell you stuff that won't work in your setting - good, old fashioned advice here :-)
Will price match if you can show us if the same plant/size is cheaper elsewhere!
Come by to buy, talk plants or take a break with us amidst the greenery....
And check out the nursery goddess keeping the torch of growing alive....!
