Cultivar opened on Oct.15 at 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd., Ste. B100, Katy.

The new shop, owned by Marita Gabriel, who describes herself as a plant hobbyist, offers coffee, a variety of plants and home decor.

“I started getting into plants last year," Gabriel said. "I already had an online website where I sold home decor and I added plants to my online website. Being into plants I joined local Facebook groups and would arrange local pick-ups. I was getting more and more requests for pick-ups so that’s when I become interested in [opening a store] since I had local patrons. I had thought that maybe I could start a brick and mortar shop where people could come in and shop.”

Gabriel said all products she carries in the store are an extension of how she decorates her home.

“Whatever items you see here, like the Rae Dunn items we carry, is the kind stuff I have in my house," Gabriel said. "I am trying to share that passion. Plus, some of these items can be hard to find."


Gabriel said she is trying to get more involved with other local plant hobbyists.

"I know some of these plants are hard to find," she said. "Some of these plants before were only available to buy online which can be a risk. It could get broken or the leaves could be dead. I want feedback from them to find out what types of plants they are looking for so that way I can bring that into the shop."
