The Exotic Houseplant Sale & Fundraiser in May was an astounding success. People keep asking when we will have the next sale. But it was a lot of work so instead of a large event, we will continue to uphold our reputation as the place to go for rare houseplants in Colorado by selling at least one new rare/exotic plant species a week. Plants will be sold either in-store or through an Instagram raffle.
The following list & gallery is what we have sold or will be selling.
"IS" means sold in-store, "R" means sold via raffle, & past offers are marked with an 'X'. This list may change at any time.

How it Works
Plants will be sold in-store ("IS") or through an Instagram raffle ("R"). Each week's rare plant offer will be announced Thursday via Instagram @green_lady_gardens & on this page. The following explains the different sale methods. Other details, suggestions, &/or rules will be in each plant’s posting including quantity available & price. We are not releasing sale dates as that is determined the week-of.
Other less rare plants that are in high demand yet still difficult to obtain will be sold randomly in-store as special releases. These plants are also marked "IS". Special release may or may not replace each week's rare plant offer. It depends on a variety of factors.
In-store sales, when there are more than a few plants:
- Sales begin when the store opens at 11am on Saturday.
- You will pick out your plant in the order of arrival.
- NO line skipping or line holds.
- You may only purchase ONE plant unless otherwise noted.
- If you want to shop more, please pay for your plant first & we will hold it.
- Always do your own care & potting research as we may or will not have that information available.
IG raffle, when plant quantities are highly limited:
- To enter, follow @green_lady_gardens. You have most likely done that already. :-)
- "Like" the post.
- Comment with "ME" to enter the raffle. (Note: Heart emojis are not a method of entry but are encouraged to show your enthusiasm.)
- Deadline for entry is 6pm Friday.
- One entry per person.
- Winners chosen using a random number generator.
- Winners will be notified by/before Saturday morning. It is important you check your IG to see if you have won. If we don't receive a response by closing Saturday at 6pm, a new winner will be chosen.
- You may be sent an invoice for prepayment.
- We ask that your plant be picked up in person by closing Sunday at 4pm as we are closed Mondays & Tuesdays. If you absolutely cannot pick up the plant by closing Sunday, you will be sent an invoice for pre-payment & we will discuss pickup.
- First choice goes to first pick-up.
- No shipping
Special releases, less rare plants that are in high demand but still difficult to obtain:
- Can be announced at any day or time.
- Will be sold in-store.
- Quantities will typically be quite high.
- Does not replace the Thursday weekly rare plant offer.
No holds, shipping, refunds, or returns. We reserve the right to change the rules & plant availability at any time.
