Many of us wish that we had a green thumb because plants make a house just that more lively. For those who struggle keeping plants alive, succulents are the way to go. Since we don't live out West, it's difficult to find the perfect cacti to add to your house. Imogene + Willie in Nashville will be hosting a cactus pop-up this weekend and you'll have so many options to choose from.
Varnish + Vine is a company that was created in 2016; this husband and wife duo create pop-ups in many cities throughout the year. This Saturday, Oct. 26, they will be at Imogene + Willie in Nashville, Tennessee selling their cacti, pots and many other market goodies from local vendors.
Living in the South, it's hard to find real cacti without going to Lowe's or Home Depot to get an already potted succulent. This company is bringing all of our western dreams to life with REAL cacti at great prices.
Varnish + Vine is based out of Atlanta and their warehouse is filled with freshly cut cacti that they get shipped in. They specialize in Peruvians and Monstrose cacti starting at $15 and $25 per foot.
Peruvians are one of the fastest-growing cacti and they are the basic plant that you think of when you think of "western." The Monstrose cacti are the disfigured, uniquely shaped plants that are a little more expensive per foot.
When you walk into these pop-ups, you'll feel like you have walked right into a Pinterest board; it's that cool and trendy. You can even pick out a pot you want your new babe to go in which makes the experience even more enjoyable.
These cacti go fast, but you can pre-order the exact size and type you want before the event even begins. Go to their Instagram (@varnishandvine) and shoot them a message!
All of Varnish + Vine's plants are sustainably sourced from companies and people who want these cacti chopped down and turned into mulch. This way, you know your purchase is making a difference and saving these beautiful plants.
