I was in the Liberty Sunset Garden Center indoor plant department in Red Hook, Brooklyn yesterday. It is a botanic garden style indoor plant store right out of the 1970's indoor plant boom era. Many of us remember it as the golden age of houseplants. If you live in the area be sure to visit.
I could spend a lot of time (and money) exploring this store. It is a fabulous mini tropical rain forest, evocative of memorable trips in real rain forests. Most of the stores like this from the '70s are long gone, replaced by rather boring big box store plant departments. I will post some photos of the store in the near future.
This inexpensive but unique terracotta planter (saucer) from LSGC is now a bonsai planter. Note that there is no de rigueur (but dumb) drain hole.
