PLANT IT: When it comes to going green, Pots and Plants is all about it. The modern plant store in the Design District, just behind Marimekko, plants green and pots it, too, with recyclable planters, like EcoLITE. The line of pots is anything but terra cotta, with architecturally cool shapes and environmentally friendly materials. Looking for a new take on hanging plants? We’re keen on the shop’s vertical garden kits from Woolly Pocket, literal pockets that attach to walls—indoors and out—and bloom green goodness like ferns, orchids or those viney things that never need watering. Go ahead, dig in. GET IT: 3940 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305.803.0533.
