Our tropical greenhouse is overflowing with beautiful foliage and a great selection of the best low-maintenance and exotic houseplants. There are many options for bright, sunny rooms or low light rooms. Many houseplants are naturally adapted to low light and are ultra-efficient at capturing light. We can help you choose the right plants to make your home more inviting.
Not only do houseplants make your home more beautiful and inviting, they absorb indoor air pollution and keep you healthy! Polluted indoor air is a major cause of headaches, nausea, itchy eyes and other discomforts.
