    Hi All!

    My long, local search for these houseplants has been unsuccessful. I sure could use some help if possible. The plants I’m seeking are...

    1) Ceropegia woodii & its variegata (String of Hearts, variegated Rosary Vine)
    2) Peperomia Prostrata (String of turtles)

    I know you don't have this there (at least I don;t THINK you do) but these are common big box store plants here in FL. Most Home Depots and Lowes carry these. Any chance you can go over the border on a looking trip?

    I was thinking of. But realized that the boarder is closed now due to COVID

    But their variations are not that impressive. Limited sort of houseplants

    Here its a mix. They all have the same palm trees, same what we call 'standard tropicals' (Red Sister Ti, common philodendrons and alocasias) annual and perennial plants. They all also have a succulent section, orchid section and small houseplant section too and they do get some nice succulents...the peperomias are usually in with the succulents

    Hi!

    Are you from Vancouver by any chance? Soh have been popping up at plant shops in Vancouver. They have them in stock at a flower shop on Davie and Howe, I think it's called Eden Florist.

    Also, if you drive to Abbotsford there is a greenhouse there called Devans. I was there a couple of days ago and saw them there. They have a lot of cool houseplants rare and common.

    Happy hunting!
