Portland is a plant shopper’s dream! I recently spent the weekend in town for a wedding, and of course, made it a point to check out a few of my favorite plant shops! During the trip, we squeezed in 3 shops I’d been eyeing, and they did not disappoint.
Anybody else spend way too much time checking out plant shops on Instagram? Even though many won’t ship to Northern California, I love to see how plants grow in the North West. Though there are what looks to be dozens of shops in Portland – I picked these three because of their great aesthetic and rare plant collections.
I was so excited to pick up 3 plants to add to my plant shelf during this trip. We picked up a hoya kerrii, hoya hindu rope, and a calathea ornata – all are small plants that have been hard to find at a reasonable price in the Bay Area. Check out where we shopped!
This shop is located in a quiet neighborhood in what used to be a car repair shop. Don’t let the lack of signage fool you – this shop has an amazing collection of well-cared-for plants. The team is super knowledgable and because it is in a nice, large space, you’re not bumping into other shoppers. The prices are fair and it’s a great place to pick up rarer plants.

You’ve probably seen this one on the gram. This popular shop is located in the heart of Mississippi street and brings in a lot of foot traffic. The shop has a wide variety of plants, including plants that can be hard to find elsewhere. Pistils also has a large collection of beautiful ceramic pots to house your plants.

Hammer + Vine
This shop is a destination for all things cute. They have traditional house plants, of course, but also have a big selection of air plants, terrariums, and cute gifts. A great stop to pick up an adorable house warming gift for a friend. The team also sets up shop at the Saturday Market every weekend, so if you’re planning on exploring the market, you can also swing by the cute pop-up shop. #cute
