If you want some exotic plants for your home, look no further than the plant sale at Mesker Park Zoo.

I wish I had a green thumb.

I don't know about you, but when it comes to plants I have the opposite of a green thumb.  Listen, I keep getting gifted succulents, which I love, but I can't even keep them alive.  My husband put a succulent moratorium on me, because I can't keep them alive, and do you know how much maintenance succulents require?  Like barely any. So anyway all of this is to say if you have a green thumb, I am very jealous and would like to learn the ways.
