Rhody Gem: May 2019

Jordan's Jungle - Providence Monthly


We are pleased to introduce Rhody Gem, a new monthly column in Providence Monthly. We’re always being thanked for spotlighting the “hidden gems” of the state, and in our ongoing efforts to leave no stone unturned, we’re putting the call out to our readership! Each month we’ll spotlight a Rhody Gem: a business, artisan, or place lead to us by our faithful readers.


What it is:

The old brick mill in Pawtucket may seem like an odd place for a nursery, but owners Darin Wildenstein and Jordan Ford love their 4,000 square feet of semi-tropical showroom. Jordan’s Jungle displays 150 varieties of air plants, a low-stress genus of perennials that thrive inside almost any New England home.


Where to find it:

Once you step inside the old mill building on Pawtucket Avenue, follow the signs down the maze of corridors. The entrance is located across the hall from the Map Center.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Jordan’s Jungle is a rejuvenating place to browse. Plants are arranged on the floor and levitate from the ceiling, and the staff can speak knowledgeably about plant care and the botanical wonder of trichomes. Find local art as well!
