Hello Moore and Moore friends!
Donna and I just went on an exciting trip to Tampa, and I wanted to tell you about it!
TPIE held a convention in Tampa a couple weeks ago (January 19th-21st). What is TPIE you ask?! It is short for Tropical Plant International Expo. Vendors come from all over to show off what they have to offer. Most were from Florida of course, but there were also vendors from Canada and the Netherlands!
We spent a few days down there, scoping out potential new vendors to order indoor plants from. There were SO many beautiful displays and plants to look at. I was definitely inspired by the creativity of these vendors! We were able to collect a lot of information, as well as see some of the cool plants the nurseries had to offer.
Florida is certainly the ideal place for plants that we would consider indoor plants. It was amazing to see a Fiddle Leaf Fig flourishing outdoors, along with other plants that wouldn't be able to survive our cold winters. I can't say that I wasn't a little jealous (haha).
Alocasia Cuprea is the 2022 TPIE cool product award winner! Which we have in the indoor greenhouse, ready for you to take home!
With that being said, we are excited to see what new indoor plants we will be able to bring you in 2022! We look forward to seeing you in the store soon!
