Disco party meets plant sale in Victoria

It’s hard to believe that buying plants can get any more exciting, but boy do we have news for you…

Always thought going to indoor plant sales were a party? Well, the Wandering Jungle team have turned this figure of speech into a reality. 

Fusing disco parties and plant sales together, the Wandering Jungle events will have you mixing and mingling with other plant lovers whilst sipping gin and bopping to cool beats, courtesy of a live DJ. 

With roots firmly grounded in plants, co-directors Lachlan Whittle and Ben O’Connor explained that it was simply a no-brainer to transform a passion into a profession. 

Plants are in our blood and we wouldn’t want it any other way,”

Lachlan said, as the creative hobby turned into a real business venture. 

Pushing the boundaries of a conventional plant sale, Wandering Jungle events aren’t your typical open-space warehouse sale. Instead, the pop-up sales ‘wander’ from breweries to bars, revamping these spaces for locals to mill around, pick up a plant or two (or more, we don’t judge), and have a dance. 

Knocking back a brew while choosing between a devil’s ivy or philodendron, while also hanging out with your mates on a night out sounds like… a green dream. And naturally, customers are going wild over these special events: “The response and turnout always blows us away. Who’d have thought music, wine and plants would go so well together?!”

But while The Wandering Jungle is best known for the ultimate plant and music collaborations, that’s not all they’re good for! They also create plant installations, and maintain green masterpieces in commercial and private properties.

As Lachlan said, nothing can beat the power of greenery and we couldn’t agree more! For more cool plant people and places, be sure to keep an eye on the Plant Life Balance blog and social channels.
