Services Offered:

Tillandsia Nursery (open by appointment):

While we love plants of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and our true passion is air plants. With over 250 varieties of tillandsia available and over 5,000 plants in our inventory, we have an air plant for everyone! Plants can be purchased online or if you are local to the San Diego area, you can set up an appointment to come shop in person.

Interior Plantscaping and Living Walls:

Plants have the ability to completely transform a space and breathe life into it, literally! We would love to partner with you and explore ways to bring plants into your space or reconceptualize the plants you currently have. Your guests, employees, clients and customers will thank you for creating a space that is lush and alive!

Space is a valuable commodity, and large empty wall spaces can be tricky (and expensive) to fill. Why not breathe some life into your space with a low maintenance, low water usage, stunning piece of living art.

Plant Parties:

Looking to turn that black thumb green? Trying to find something fun to do with a friend or significant other? Do you have that DIY spirit? Come try a plant party or book one for your friends, for a bachelorette party, your office team, or a church group. Classes include all materials necessary and require no experience!

We offer a variety of experiences working with air plants, succulents, houseplants, and ferns. We schedule 4-6 public classes a year throughout San Diego County. Private parties can be booked for parties of as few as 6.

- Cost of a class is totally up to you based on the project you choose. We tailor our classes to your needs. Costs are calculated per person and can range from $15 - 50 per person
- Classes include all class materials, a 101 course on the plants you are working with, and take home care information
- Classes can be booked for parties of 6-25 people

Educational Workshops and Presentations:

Our owner formerly worked in non-profit education, so sharing information, creating learning opportunities, and bringing the community together are part of our mission. We would love to come speak to your class, business, or organization on a variety of air plant related topics.

Event Décor and Plant Rentals:

Whether you are looking for air plants to incorporate in the bride’s bouquet, accessories for centerpieces, table runners, or a living wall for photos, we’ve got you covered. We have houseplants, succulents, and tillandsia that will liven up any event space, and we strive to make your vision come to life.

Have an upcoming event you want to beautify but don’t have the budget to buy a bunch of gorgeous plants? Rent them at a quarter of the cost! Perfect idea for weddings, bridal showers, or events you want to class up. You can hold onto the plants for up to a week, we can pick up and deliver, and you pay nothing more than the rental fee (25% of retail price) as long as the plants are returned in the condition they were received.

We will even create custom pieces for your event that you can rent! Contact us for more info or a quote.

KÉXY reduces the amount of time it takes to do Inventory, Ordering, and Employee Scheduling by 70%!
Operating a bar or restaurant is a complicated business. That's not considering the time it takes you to organize employee schedules and availability, manage communications with your sales reps and staff members, track inventory, and handle orders. Day-to-day business operations can be overwhelming to say the least. Meanwhile, errors and inefficiency in these tasks are causing you to lose money, productivity, and valuable time.

We developed a business solution that overcomes these challenges and it's called KÉXY.

KÉXY simplifies:

Employee Scheduling: With KÉXY you can manage employee schedules in one centralized location including employee availability, requested time off, and trade requests. Employees can also keep track of shift changes and notifications from you in real time.
Communications: Our messaging feature gives you the ability to simultaneously send emails and messages to multiple people from one platform. Whether it's sales reps, staff members, or vendors, you can communicate or set up meetings quickly and efficiently.
Tracking Inventory: KÉXY allows you to monitor and manage front and back of the house inventory with staff members and sales reps in milliseconds.
Ordering Products: You can track and place orders to sales reps quickly and efficiently with just one click from your phone or any device.

KÉXY streamlines many of your business processes, freeing up your time, increasing productivity, and allowing you to focus on operations that increase and maximize profit. We encourage any bar or restaurant manager to contact Scott (, so he can arrange a webinar or call with one of our agents to discuss how KÉXY can save you time and money.
Exclusive Offer for Food & Beverage Association of San Diego Members:
For the months of August and September, save 50% off our monthly price for LIFE! ($99/month versus $199/month… Forever.)
