Anyone know where to get a Pink Princess [plant] in ZH?

https://leafyplace.com/philodendron-...on-erubescens/

This seems to be quite hard to get a hold of and even getting cuttings doesn't guarantee you can make a new plant. Anyone know how I might get one of these here? Understood that this could get expensive :O

Re: Anyone know where to get a Pink Princess in ZH?

Perhaps a good place to start your search would be Meier Garden Center in Dürnten:

https://www.meier-ag.ch

This is a huge garden centre with extensive stock. I don't know if they have the variety you are looking for, but you could certainly write them and ask. IME they are very customer-focused.

Probably best to use both the common (English and German) and botanical names when you inquire.

Well, if you get one and it thrives, don't forget me, I'll take a cutting....



I hear that there is quite a market for rare indoor plants, enough to turn a hobby into a small 'side hustle'...
