Hurricane Damage Affects Supply

                   
Shade House Damaged by Irma

Everything Grows gets its beautiful indoor plants from California, Hawaii, and Florida. 

Hurricane Irma impacted many of the nurseries in Florida - some have major damage, others very little.  


Overall, the damage was less than was expected because of the western path that Irma took as it crossed into Florida. If the "eye" had veered more towards Miami and then hugged the Eastern coast of Florida, the damage would have been much more significant.
Toppled Shade Houses 

Nevertheless, most of the nurseries do not have power and are working overtime to clean up fallen plants. They are also busy making repairs to their shade cloth structures so that their plants that they did save are not damaged by direct exposure to the sun. It is really a race against time at this moment. 

More Extensive Damage 

Going forward, we anticipate that Florida supply will be under pressure the rest of the year and into next year as some nurseries rebuild and start new stock. We may see shortages and/or price increases in some plant varieties.   Meanwhile, We will do everything we can to assure the best plants available for our indoor plant customers.

Don't let the hurricane damage stop you from putting lush beautiful plants in your office space!

Earth Walls Make a Statement!

These large Earth Walls really make a statement in this San Ramon office building lobby! 

The gorgeous living plants in the Earth Walls are Sansevieria Zeylanica. An interesting fact about the Sansevieria: A few years back NASA did a study to determine which indoor plants best cleaned the air  and came up with a top 25 list, and Sansevieria are one of the better rated plants. Sansevieria are effective for removing benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and other harmful fumes from the air.

Moss Walls are In!


Moss walls are very popular right now, especially in Europe. They offer a great alternative to natural green plant walls.  They take up less space, they cost less, and there is no ongoing maintenance cost, and they are truly beautiful.

The most commonly used moss is Reindeer Moss. Other preserved mosses, plants, branches, and driftwood are used to create unique designs that really make a statement.

Rubber Plant Cleans the Air

A few years back NASA did a study to determine which indoor plants best cleaned the air  and came up with a top 25 list.  Many of the the plants that Everything Grows offers with its interior plant service are on the list.  

One of them is the Ficus Decora known as the Rubber Plant. It is a hardy indoor plant that can tolerate lower light levels found in indoor environments.  Not only does this plant produce oxygen from Carbon Dioxide, but it also absorbs harmful formaldehyde.

Here is a picture of a small Ficus Decora with dark shiny leaves:
