    Arrow Nurseries: Do They Exist?

    Hello All Green Thumbs,

    I am referencing plant nurseries, not children nurseries!

    I have re-discovered the joy of house plants: "mascotas" of the plant world, if you will. FYI, La Sirena on the corner of La Mella and Duarte, has an excellent selection with new varieties being added every few days, all in good health, in beautiful ceramic vases, at fair prices. Apparently, though, not all La Sirena's are created equally. I was at one, I believe on Churchill, and the selection was poor to non-existent. Strange, one would have thought the opposite.

    My apartment is on the roof, four staircases up, perfect for pots of flowers. Problem is, if I want to buy one flower, I might have to pay ~RD$400.

    If I could find a nursery--if they even exist, I do not know--I could buy several flats of flowers. In addition, I need to find a nursery that offers gardening supplies, a selection of potware, etc.

    Any ideas?

    They’re called viveros and they’re all over DR.

    Alternatively, when you see a flower/plant that you like, you knock on the door and engage in conversation. I do not recall ever been turned down when asking for a root/branch/flower from a stranger's garden.
    More often than not you will get coffee

    The orchid viveros are a great place to see dozens of native varieties. The ones near me are on the edge of town bc they need a lot of land.
