I’ve been busy grooming the plants that I intend to enter into L A international Fern Society’s annual fern and exotic plant show. The show is held at the L A County Arboretum ( Arcadia, California) The days this year are July 26-27.
Back in the day it seems that the tiki palaces used lotsa plastic “exotic” plants. I use one of my other collecting passions (live ferns and tropicals) in and around my tiki lounge and find it a good fit.
The following pix don’t necessarily reflect how I display/use my plant collection in my lounge, for example I placed the fern on top of the tiki’s head so that I could see any fronds that needed to be clipped. My wife liked the sorta humorous result and I decided to waste some of my unlimited film stash and post some pix.
Tiki bought in a bar, Shelter Island, Ca W/“Rabbitsfoot" fern.
W/ “Leather” fern
Tree fern W/resin tiki from Tuesday Morning store in La Habra, Ca
Timber Bamboo planted in the spring of 2013. Already too big for the show-hopefully it’ll get as tall as what they use to have at Hi-Times liquor in Costa Mesa. Mugs shown for scale
