Botany plants lately? Plant shops are all the buzz in Long Beach, California and it seems like they’re sprouting up on every corner! While some businesses had a hard time keeping their doors open during the pandemic, plant stores thrived. It’s no surprise. If you’re spending more time indoors, what better way to brighten up your living space than with a few potted plants? Now, almost two years into the pandemic, the green-thumb trend still hasn’t died down.
Here are five plant stores you should visit if you’re a fellow plant-lover:
Located on the corner of 4th Street and Termino Ave, Plantiitas offers a variety of low-maintenance houseplants, tropical plant variations, planters, and accessories!
