Come visit our brick and mortar stores in San Francisco’s Bernal Heights neighborhood and our new location in Ghirardelli Square.
When you enter the lush, magical place we have created, you’ll see how we truly foster a succulent lifestyle. Whether through plants, art, clothing, technology, or design, we connect you with items to make your home and garden more full of richness, beauty and functionality.
Customers have been known to browse for hours, and we often hear people say that they wish they could live in the store! Located on Cortland Avenue, the neighborhood’s main drag, our shop boasts one of San Francisco’s most diverse offerings of succulents and cacti, and a huge variety of airplants. The shop is filled with terrariums, aerims, and custom-made vertical gardens. We have a bookshelf stocked with plant books (and books about anything else that we find interesting and succulent!) and a rotating collection of original art and sculpture for sale. We offer items for the bath and home, antique and one-of-a-kind handmade fixtures, and a carefully curated selection of ceramics.
If you make it through this jungle of delights, you’ll get to our garden center, where we have what a home gardener needs to build terrariums and to care for succulents, airplants, and other indoor and outdoor plants: tools, gloves, decorative glass and rocks, moss, planters and pots, glass globes, and an ever-growing inventory of other specialty tools and products.
Our nursery is out back, behind the store, and is a true oasis. There, you can browse for plants, get expert advice on planting and care, and even select items to put into your own plant art creation at the store.
Our planting bar is always open for customers to use to make a plant creation on the spot. You pick the plants, the planter, and the decorative extras and our staff will guide you through the process of putting together a beautiful and healthy succulent planting or terrarium.
