Enjoy plants during the winter

Houseplants are known to not only bring life and beauty into your space but they also reduce stress and fatigue and can boost your mood, creativity and production. At Urban Roots we are receiving weekly shipments of tropical houseplants that fit a wide variety of conditions. We are here to help you find a plant(s) that will thrive in your space. We search for rare and hard to find varieties along with the tried and true. Bright light to low light, easy to challenging, we offer an ever-changing selection of plants for you to choose from.
