Best Place to Get Plants You Won't Kill 

Sunshine & Succulents

There are few S.F. apartments that wouldn't be instantly hipper with a collection of succulents, ideally housed in some sort of attractively rusting tin spice box or wheelbarrow or maybe in a seashell you found on a camping trip up to the North Coast, though really any old terrarium will do the trick. The alien-looking plants have become the set dressing du jour on Pinterest and Instagram, but serve a practical purpose as well as an aesthetic one: They're incredibly low-maintenance and need very little water or soil, thus are ideal for the busy, negligent lifestyle of most of us in the city. And since we know you don't have the time or motivation to go to the plant store, it will occasionally come to you in the form of Sunshine & Succulents, a roving pop-up that not only sells plants and terrariums, but will also show you how to make and maintain them and even give advice on your own plants.
