Walk through the door, and you'll enter a humid jungle of green leaves, red blossoms and tropical delights, complete with parrot. Way in the back, Mr. Cordova and his family grow the plants from tiny seedlings, coaxing them to gargantuan proportions before moving them to the front for quick sale. And quick sales they make, because their prices and quality are excellent. How about a ten-foot ficus for $125 or a Hawaiian antherium flower for $7?
