Our indoor greenhouse is packed with tropical foliage, bromeliads, tillandsia, and mini African violets. In addition to our “terrarium-friendly” collection, we are now carrying some larger tropical plants that make great houseplants, and are a little more exotic than what you will find at the big box stores (althought we stock bread-and-butter species, too).
We have lined up several new sources of plants, including one new supplier which will allow us to “piggyback” on its orders to larger wholesalers. This allows us access to plants we could never get before. If there is anything in particular that you are looking for, we can find it on one of the many availability lists we review each week.
We are working on adding to our selection of orchids, too, so if you have a favorite species or hybrid you’d like to see, let us know.
Rainforest Station always offers a wide variety of exotic pets, featuring the largest selection of poison dart frogs, tree frogs and terrestrial frogs you’ll find in a retail store in the Midwest. You’ll also find leopard geckos, crested geckos, gargoyle geckos, and other gecko species; bearded dragons and other lizards (currently featuring baby savannah monitors, adult blue-tongued skinks, Asian water dragons, lacertas, ameivas ), turtles and tortoises, corn snakes and ball pythons, an assortment of tarantulas, and even some amphibians with tails: tiger salamanders, spotted salamanders, Spanish (Iberia) ribbed newts, California newts, and Axolotl larvae.
If you’re into tarantulas, we have everything from beginner species, such as the Chilean Red Rose-Hair to advanced species such as the Sri Lanka Ornamental Tarantula.
If you are looking for any other species, please drop us a line and we’ll do our best to track it down. And, of course, we have more roaches, crickets, wax worms, fruit flies, and bean beetles than you can shake a stick at.
We also carry a full line of products from manufacturers such as, Exo Terra, Zoo Med, Zilla, Flukers, Tetra, as well as an indoor greenhouse with a wide variety of tropical plants to furnish your naturalistic terrariums and vivariums.
You can shop on-line or stop by and see us. We’re just a mile east of the I-96 interchange, at 6248 28th St. SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49546. Or, we offer free delivery of items purchased on-line to any of the shows at which we are a vendor.
