Our 6thseason as Figaro’s “new” owners has been a great success, serving more people this year than any other past. The interest in tropical plants have been a major factor in this growth as more people, of all ages and backgrounds are discovering the joy of growing plants indoors. And seriously, what is not to love? The textures, shapes, and infinite shades of green plants bring into the home has become an essential tool in filling the spaces we inhabit with more life; arguably, even more presence than a beautiful piece of mid-century furniture ever could.
We are doing our best to stock the houseplant classics that have been popular since forever ago (Peace Lily, Schefflera, Spider Plant, etc.) as well as trying to source unique, hard to find tropicals that adorn the plant collection obsessed feeds on Instagram. The passion on these pages is not unlike that of John Laroche and his orchid fanaticism; perhaps a more toned-down, modern, apartment dwelling version and certainly without the Florida swamp, orchid hunting excursions. Several articles have even been written about millennials and why they have turned to plant parenting and we firmly believe the more plants the better because #plantsmakeeverythingbetter!
2019 will bring some exciting changes for Figaro’s and tropical plants will be a big part of that. We look forward to another year of serving our community and wish you a wonderful holiday season.
