Urban Jungle Philadelphia

Urban Jungle Philadelphia We're an urban garden center looking to bring a little jungle into city settings. Our mission is to create green urban environments, because we believe surrounding yourself with plants is both visually pleasing and helps us feel more relaxed and happy.

We sell everything you need for your houseplants, from the soil to the plant itself. We carry plants, pots, seeds, garden supplies, cacti, succulents, watering cans, and so much more! We’re here to help you with your plants, whether you’re a new plant parent or a plant pro. We also offer landscape and garden services to private residences, corporate buildings, and more. Visit our website to learn more!

meet Cece 🌿✨

we thought it was time to show you the people behind the plants here at the Jungle, and what better way to start than with our go to hand model? 💅🏼🌿

Cece has been at the Jungle with us for a little over a year, and she’s our go to person for niche plant knowledge. you may or may not recognize her from Drexel, where she studied sustainable food systems and fostered her love for the science behind growing houseplants 🌱

like we said, cece is our go to girl for plant knowledge and interesting facts, but her knowledge (and general passion, tbh) for the Hoya family is unmatched. she loves the Alocasia family, too!

her favorite part about plant parenthood is one a lot of us can relate to: the community! through houseplants, Cece has met a lot of amazing people, and made a lot of great friends. (insert shoutout to the plant community here 🥰)

keep an eye out for more member monday posts to keep meeting the UJ team! 💚

hey, you deserve a break— but before you hop in your car or on your flight, we have a few tips so you can return home to happy houseplants 🪴

first things first: if you’re expecting to be gone for an extended period of time, we recommend texting a fellow plant parent or writing up your water schedule for a willing neighbor. but if you’ll be away from home for a week or less, then there are a couple of things you can do to prepare your plants for your departure 🌱

keep in mind that these tips are for most tropical houseplants— specialty plants may need more attention depending on your trip length and their care needs!

deeply watering any thirsty plants right before you leave should hold them over for trips less than a week long. assess any drought tolerant plants accordingly— because they don’t need to be watered as frequently, they may not need a soak! this includes your cacti, succulents, ZZ plants, etc.

if you water your plant once a week or more, consider moving it away from its sunny spot (and direct sunlight!). the more sunlight plants receive, the quicker the soil dries out and your plant needs a drink; moving your plants a few feet further from their light source can help them maintain moisture for longer.

your humidity loving plants can be grouped together to help them maintain moisture, too! pick a spot (bathrooms with a window are ideal) and huddle them up so they can hang out while you’re away.

the best part? both the Cotyledon Pendens and the Rat tail Cactus are considered low maintenance plants for sunny spaces! they both appreciate plenty of sunlight and need a good soak when their soil is dry 🪴

we’ve said it before, but we think it’s time to say it again 👀💧

take this as your gentle reminder that “overwatering” generally refers to how OFTEN you’re watering your plants, not how much water you give it at once. your plants like to be watered thoroughly until water flows out of the drainage holes on the bottom of the pot 🪴

speaking of… we know the struggle can be real when it comes to finding nice pots with drainage holes. to compromise, we sometimes keep our plants in plastic nursery pots and put them inside their more aesthetic planter. this way, you don’t have to choose between drainage holes and pretty pots 🌱

now that we finished our rant on overwatering, we want to hear your water tips! drop some of your favorite tips in the comments below 💧

Meet houseplant cat club member, Naomi! Naomi was rescued by our Humane Law Enforcement team alongside nearly 30 other cats. Because of her past, it has taken her a while to warm up, but she's doing swimmingly in foster care. Her foster mom says: "She is doing so great! In just the past few days she has started walking around the room with me there and coming down from the window to sit next to me. Last night she was rolling around on the bath mat, I couldn’t believe it! These photos show her personality starting to come out :)" Naomi's fee is waived, and includes a $25 gift card to Urban Jungle Philadelphia. Email [email protected] for more.

"Hi, my name is Junior and it’s so great to meet you! I am currently hanging out in foster care having a great time outside of the shelter. When you first get to know me, you’ll notice that I’m very timid and shy. Because my life wasn’t so great before I was rescued it takes me some time to warm up to new people. But once I’m comfortable I will reward you with endless purrs and slow blinks. My foster mom says that I am so low maintenance that she doesn’t even notice I’m here sometimes! I love to lay in my soft bed and listen to the birds outside. I also love being petted once I’m comfortable with you. My ideal home would be with adults only or with adults and cat-savvy teens. I would thrive in a home with other cats but I’m not really a fan of dogs. If you have a quiet home and are looking for a sweet gal such as myself to keep you company please email my friends at [email protected]. We can’t wait to hear from you! My fee is waived, and if you adopt me, you’ll also receive a $25 gift card to Urban Jungle Philadelphia. Let’s grow together!" #WhiskerWednesday

Meet Maverick! She is a member of the Houseplant Cat Club, which helps find homes for less social cats. She is non-aggressive, but due to her history of being rescued from a neglectful situation, requires time and patience to truly flourish. Maverick's fee is waived, and if you adopt her, you’ll also receive a $25 gift card to Urban Jungle Philadelphia. Let’s grow together! This beautiful lady came into our care just before COVID hit, and oh boy was she a sad girl in the shelter. We found a wonderful foster home to transition to, and we've learned so much about her! Maverick is an independent woman who is a very nice houseguest. She always cleans up after herself and her favorite things include soft beds and feline friends! She would be very happy to settle into a home that already has an established cat family - she doesn't need much, just a cozy place to relax, and a zen environment to settle into! Could she be the purrfect addition to your family? Email her pals at [email protected] to find out!
"What greater gift than the love of a cat." Potato, one of our Houseplant Cat Club members, found her #furever home this weekend. This beautiful girl was rescued by our Humane Law Enforcement team in June of 2020. While it took her a while for her to socialize here in the shelter, she had many fans. We were all so happy, and a little sad, to see her find her family this weekend. We know with some patience and love, she'll continue to blossom in her home. Adoption fees for all Houseplant Cat Club members are waived and include a $25 gift certificate to Urban Jungle Philadelphia!
Animal lovers have really stepped up over the past year to provide "furever" and foster homes to pets in shelters. And now, we're looking for plant lovers to adopt some of our more shy and less social cats through the Houseplant Cat Club. Thanks to our friends at NBC10 Philadelphia, especially Sheila Watko, for shining the spotlight on these cautious cats who are just waiting for their opportunity to grow. Did we mention their adoption fee is waived and all adopters receive a $25 gift card to Urban Jungle Philadelphia?
Celebrate #EarthDay2021 tomorrow and every day by checking out just some of the businesses along the Avenue with eco-friendly practices and products 🌎 Sustainability can take many forms, and East Passyunk businesses are here to help you help our planet. See photos for Miss Demeanor, Ember & Ash Philly, Primal Supply Meats, ILLExotics, Urban Jungle Philadelphia, Sermania Jewelry, Good Buy Supply, and Tildie's Toy Box. Be sure to visit their pages and websites to learn more.
Hello, Junior here! I'm a super sweet lady who's pastimes include sitting on windowsills, bird watching, and chirping to imitate my birb friends. I may have a face that always looks angry, but I'm a darling gal who just hangs around, watching my feline foster sister eat all my kibbles. I'm a good sport! I'm a little shy at first, but I love head and chin scritchies and would love a nice calm home to relax in, and a human family that can help me flourish! I promise to thank them with sweet chirps and generally by being adorable. I’m a member of the Houseplant Cat Club here at the PSPCA, which helps find homes for less social cats. Due to my history of being rescued from a neglectful situation, I require time and patience to truly flourish. My fee is waived, and if you adopt me, you’ll also receive a $25 gift card to Urban Jungle Philadelphia. Let’s grow together!
