After running his plant shop for over two and a half years out of his home, Andres Cardenas is seeking an upgrade. 

Between mid- to late-summer, he’s planning to open his first brick and mortar location for BarTrop Plants, billed as a Midwestern plant store that ethically sources rare and unusual plants, at 3017 Indianola Ave. Cardenas is looking to share the space with another local business and turn the basement into a greenhouse to grow and sell plants. 

“My heart and passion is for the plants,” he said.

The space is slated to be open for customers several days during the week, with the remainder of the week available to the public by appointment. 

Cardenas, who has sold his rare and exotic tropical plants on Etsy, said the new greenhouse will give him the stability necessary to produce better quality products. 

“My vision has always been to build a greenhouse in an urban space,” he said.
