Without trees to generate oxygen, humans would have to retrieve it from scuba tanks and the minty breath of local supermen. Keep the air alive with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of plants and garden accessories at The Plant Stand in Costa Mesa.
At The Plant Stand, customers browse outdoor and indoor plants available in a range of sizes alongside various garden accouterments. Low-maintenance cacti require no water and very little pocket money to survive ($1.20–$225), and tropical palms such as kentia and seifrizii bamboo shade shoppers with their fronds ($15.97–$750). Spiky bromeliads liven up offices and sensory-deprivation chambers ($6–$46), and orchids blossom in delicate clusters ($8–$35). Gardeners can decorate their streams with stepping stones and their front-porch winds with wind chimes, or host their flying friends in style with birdbaths, birdhouses, and risqué birdbathhouses ($12.95–$300). Old plants can also find new homes in The Plant Stand’s selection of muted pots and baskets ($5.95–$525).
