As soon as he started to talk about the different varieties of Anthurium he was growing, you could see his passion ignite.

Talking with plant growers and breeders always leaves me in awe. The time spent with Mike Rimland at Costa Farms was no exception. He is a true plantsman with passion, a grower of plants with a purpose.
I visited Costa Farms as a part of their first-ever Costa Farms Social Summit, along with Justin Hancock of Better Homes and Gardens, Steve Bender of Southern Living, Stacey Hirvela of Martha Stewart Living, Judy Lowe of Christian Science Monitor, Aaron Able of Apartment Therapy, Helen Yoest of Gardening with Confidence, and Brenda Haas of BG Garden. Costa Farms supplies houseplants to Lowes, Home Depot and Walmart (as well as other retailers throughout the country).
