Botanical artist Paloma Teppa stocks her Wynwood shop, Plant the Future, with easy-to-care-for living greens perfect for the urbanites on your gift list.
Butterfly Garden, $98
Your ever-evolving pal will appreciate a hanging glass bubble filled with succulent plants and a cocoon that transforms into a butterfly in just six days.
Coral Cactus, $65
The desert flora (available in yellow, pink, or green) adds a dash of color to the home of any conservative dandy.
For the recent burbs-turned-city dweller, Teppa’s created a whimsical world — succulents, cacti, a family of vintage porcelain rabbits, and layers of black and white sand — inside a crystal ball.
Air Plant Necklace, $60
Tree huggers can spread their message with wearable greenery that hangs from a gold chain and requires no soil.
Money Tree, $68
Inside the white ceramic container sits a sapling from the bonsai family whose presence is said to bring good fortune — ideal for your cheap roommate.
Plant the Future, 2511 Northwest Second Avenue (305-571-7177 or plantthefuture.com).
