Aroids on Steroids? $$$

Philodendron Hope Selloum
In the last few years, ariods (araceae) such as philodendron and monstera have become wildly popular and very much in demand.  Some specimens, especially in the larger sizes are hard to come by, so we sometimes have to go with a smaller plant or a substitute depending on availability.  It seems that the popularity is being driven by younger people who are seeing and posting these plants on Instagram.  This recent article in the New York times talks about house plant auctions and how much some of these plants and their cuttings are going for right now.

We thought you might enjoy the article:

Monstera Deliciosa

Are you ready for beautiful live tropical plants for your workspace located anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area?  You do not have to attend an auction to get beautiful reasonably price specimens -- just contact Everything Grows for a complementary walk through and proposal for plants for your office or lobby.
