Visiting The Tropics, Inc. in Los Angeles

As a lover of plants, it's always such a treat for me to visit a well-stocked botanical gallery that deals in exotic and unusual varieties.

Last week, during my brief trip to Los Angeles, I stopped at The Tropics, Inc., a leader in the rare specimen plant and tree industry. Founded in 1972, The Tropics carries thousands of tropical plants, trees, orchids, and decorative accessories - all housed in a 20,000 square foot showroom. The owner, Ryan Hroziencik, and his team offer plants for both residential and corporate use, real estate staging, and television and film projects. I admired all of the many unusual cultivars, containers, and outdoor garden ornaments.
