We went today to my favorite C&S store - Cactus Jungle..as always, finding everything there such eye candy..took some photos once more:
I want ...want...want this desert orchid...but it is too expensive!!! So will just enjoy it as a photo: Eulophia petersii


Along the aisle...

As we head out, took some photos of their plants by the entrance:

I think this is a weed of some kind growing in between the succulents...took a closer shot...it is pretty!
Thumb of 2014-11-17/tarev/e26c3c Thumb of 2014-11-17/tarev/d6abe4

The reason we went here..hubby wants some carnivorous plants which this store also sells...so here's our haul for this trip:
Sarracenia purpurea, sundew and pinguicula
Thumb of 2014-11-17/tarev/d61b4a
Glad they have bags of pumice for sale..so took a bag too..getting hard to find pumice in our local BBS.

We cannot resist not buying this lovely Sansevieria. The label says Sansevieria francisii; too bad I won't be growing this at home..it will be my hubby's pet at work Smiling

Tarev, love your photos from the nursery. I think I could easily spend at least an entire day there. That is a lot of eye candy.
The new sans is beautiful.
The weed looks to be :


It reseeds easily, but is easy to pull out if it comes up where you don't want it.

That is some serious eye candy. l miss traveling. If we had stores like that I would end up living in a dog house and drinking rain water.
