I took a drive to Markham today to visit Kim's Nature, a little garden centre at the corner of Major Mackenzie and Markham Road. They have a bit of everything. Bonsai seems to be their focus but they also have perennials, a few orchids, tillandsias, African cichlids, budgies and canaries, pots and media. Their website says they have "African Dart Frogs" and there's a photo of a few D. tinctorius "azureus" but I didn't see any there.
If you need some oil from the endangered Neems they've got it.
As well as a few nasty pesticides that aren't supposed to be on the shelf. They also have a good selection of orchid and bonsai media including big bags of Akadama, and smaller bags of sphagnum and bark chips. And some nice Japanese bonsai pots.
Just a few CPs as pictured below.
I think these are Heliamphora "Maiden's Delight" on the left, and Nepenthes plasticus on the right. They look like they're quite easy species.
I also stopped at Sheridan on Highway 7 in Unionville
Those large N. alata are $35 and they have the smaller Colasantis Nep NOID and VFTs and a pile of Mimosa pudica. I got some of the Lithops which are merchandised beside the CPs. The cashier told me a customer that morning had asked if the Lithops were carnivorous. I told her that they are, but they eat really slowly.
