Dragon Agro Products is the vendor that serious plant addicts can't miss in Philadelphia (Perla with fan)
Their web site, Dragon Agro Products, is both a source of the choice and peculiar, and an interesting read. For crying out loud, they list seeds of Welwitschia mirabilis, an exotic primitive gymnosperm endemic to one region of the Namib Desert. Only growing two strap leaves that coil curiously, it is really the Holy Grail of rare plants. I remember, I think from the 1970's seeing an advertisement for small seedling plants for $5,000.00 each in, of all places, The Wall Street Journal???
