Happy 2013 L.A. adventurers! Our first post of the new year is for all you crazy horticulturists.
It's a jungle in Culver City... If you loved the wildlife at STAR Eco Station (#247), head over to Orchid Fever, Culver City's greenhouse jungle paradise. Here you'll find koi fish, turtles, a fake crocodilian, and orchids galore.
Roar! (or whatever sound crocodilians make)
Orchid Fever is known for producing the best, longest lasting orchids in L.A.. I'd seriously never seen such beautiful orchids. Every plant there looked fake (that's meant to be a compliment).
I recently took my mom here because my parents grow orchids at home, and she was in heaven.
We didn't buy anything on this trip, but I really enjoyed just walking around the spacious store. Next time I need to get a gift for someone, they're getting an orchid! Oh, and for all you guys out there, Valentine's Day is coming up next month, so if you were planning on getting your gal roses, why not step out of the box a little and give her an orchid?
