New plant potting shop opens in Tower

Janet Moos and Jason Kabeary run The Succulent Shack

An unusual shop has opened in the Tower District: A potting bar. No, it’s got nothing to do with marijuana, say the owners. The Succulent Shack focuses on potting plants, specifically small, fleshy succulents.

In the former Twee location at 1302 Wishon Ave., the business lets customers pick out a plant, pick out a pot and do the potting themselves, adding glass or stone top dressing.

There’s pots for sale by local artists and ones the owners make themselves. They also sell the finished product. Their “pot-a-sauruses” — a plastic dinosaurs painted and hollowed out to hold plants — are so popular they sold out.

They sell other items, like the Dirty Bird Birdhouses, birdhouses made from gourds grown by a Tulare County gourd farm. The Succulent Shack hosts potting parties for kids and adults too. Most plants cost $4.50 or less, depending on size, with pots ranging from $1.50 to $25 and potting fees ranging from $1.75 to $3.75.

The owners are a cute couple, Janet Moos and Jason Kabeary. Avid gardeners, they hope other people will become as attached to the water-efficient plant as they are.

You can see hours and other information at their Facebook page here. Below are some photos from the shop.

Even the trees out front of the business get the succulent treatment.

wow great idea, most places that have been opening up like this around town have been for supplies to grow weed, so this is a neat idea where people can really get normal plants at
