Hi everybody! Wanted to share one of my favorite spots to purchase plants, The Plant Chica. Latinx womxn owned and they do a lot of awesome work to make plants more accessible. They have an online shop: https://theplantchica.com/collections/online-shop [they have an etsy too] and a brick-and-mortar location in Jefferson Park in LA. I haven't been to their storefront but have gotten plants from their website and they're incredible, so definitely worth checking out if you're looking to purchase for somebody or yourself!
For LA locals, they have pretty regular 'Adopt a Plant' events where you can get a free plant or two. They announce those on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/theplantchica/?hl=en
If you can make it, it's a great opportunity to get some free plants and hang out with cool plant people 🌿
(to be clear, this isn't sponsored or anything. They don't know me but I love their shop and wanted to share lolol)
