Tropicals in central Pennsylvania
I just moved to State College from the northwest, and am wondering if anyone can suggest any non-specific leads for local sources of sturdy, flowering tropical houseplants: for example, orchids, bromeliads, banana, or clivia, especially more unusual varieties.
Since there are RULES AGAINST ADVERTISING on this site, you don't have to be too specific in the forum, but at least a city name would be helpful. (I'm concerned about ordering stuff by mail, because it might get exposed to extreme temperatures along the way.) I tried the large local home-improvement stores, and their selections were fairly depressing. Any ideas?
