In an office building? Dry cleaners? In a commercial? On vacation? What caught your eye, if you knew its' name, and where was it? Bonus points for pics.

Sadly no pictures, but I saw this huge Philodendron at a florist that was in the process of moving to another location (we were walking by and their plants caught my eye). No idea what it was, but it reminds me of your Philodendron that gets the dark red leaves on it? It was huge! I so wanted to go in and look around, but they were closed. I need to see where they moved to, maybe they have a baby version. Lovey dubby

These were plants I saw during my trip to the Phils early this year while in transit at Taipei airport. I really enjoyed how they incorporated various indoor plants inside the airport. I think I have posted this before in a different thread, but sharing it again here:

Then in my aunt's home city in the Philippines, they have lovely plants adorning their church outdoors:

I saw this very tall Crassula ovata at a garden nursery in Berkeley, quite impressive!

This one is not a recent photo, I took it on another trip to Manila last Feb 2014. I have no luck growing vandaceous orchids here in my area, and seeing these ones at a mall area garden is such a feast to the eyes. Lovey dubby

We went to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for vacation several weeks ago and I saw lots of amazing plants. This one was a standout for me. Sanchezia speciosa/nobilis.

When you started this thread, I thought of this hospital's lobby plants. This one here is about four feet tall and six or seven feet wide. What is it, some huge Philodendron? They have several of these along with several huge Ficus lyrata 8+ feet tall. They are really nice happy huge plants in an otherwise not particularly fancy hospital. Maybe someone on building staff is a long time greenthumb who really appreciates them.
