What You'll Get
Doctor your dwelling with gorgeous greenery with today’s well-potted Groupon. For $15, you’ll get $30 worth of pretty plants and pots at Envy Grows, a botanical boutique in the heart of the city that allows urbanites to turn over a new leaf.
Whether attempting rain-forest replication or merely looking for a carbon dioxide–absorbing companion, Envy Grows offers a well-edited selection of indoor and outdoor plants, pots and planters, environmentally friendly patio furniture, and gardening supplies. Options range from the flirtatious tickle-me plant to the dangerous Venus flytrap. Plants range anywhere from $6 to $200, and pots go for $10 to $270.
These rooted wonders are less expensive apartment investments than artwork and more eco-friendly than electronics. They’ll fill your house with verdant, vibrant fumes, and unlike candles, won’t burn it down if you forget to blow them out. Plants provide you with oxygen and visual enjoyment, and they won’t judge or interrupt you. Get this Groupon to gauge readiness for children and/or small pets, or to cut down on therapy costs by relaying woes to your potted pal instead.
Two Yelpers give Envy Grows five stars:
- I purchased my first plant from Envy at the old location earlier this year. I stopped in on a whim and loved it! Jay was super nice and suggested a perfect low maintenance plant for my apartment. – Kristen M.
- Envy carries plants, pots, tools, and even some patio furniture. For a small store, there are some great selections. The plants are well-arranged, healthy, and reasonably priced. – Julie B.
The Upcoming Flytrapocalypse
The Venus flytrap is unique among plants because it is the only plant that is motivated by a vicious desire to kill. Botanists, as well as plant psychologists and the United States Conference of Mayors, believe that in the short-term, Venus flytraps hope to win the trust of humans by eating only bothersome flies. However, in the long-term, there is no doubt that Venus flytraps hope to become bipedal, evolve into the Earth's dominant species, and wipe out humanity.
Though a flytrap-dominated Earth may seem far-fetched, the United Nation's Council on Apocalyptic Likelihood rates the scenario "very likely," the same ranking given to possible world destructions caused by time-traveling dinosaurs and the Transformers. For the time being, you can help postpone the upcoming flytrapocalypse by not bringing any Venus flytraps into your home. That only allows the deceitful plant to learn your habits for later exploitation.
