I personally know a gardener at El Sol Brillante. He was talking about the plants he was now trying to grow, and eventually I was like, are you guys aspiring to be the first East Village Botanical Garden?

Because once you've successfully grown all the usual plants, apparently the next step is ... all the unusual plants. Can't tell if that is what is going on, but it would be a good explanation...
