Daily Inspiration: Meet Ryan Hroziencik

Today we’d like to introduce you to Ryan Hroziencik.

Ryan, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I’m the owner of The Tropics Inc. in Hollywood, CA… This is our 49th year in business… My father, Ronald J. Hroziencik founded The Tropics Inc. in 1972 and he’s still very involved in everything… He and his college roommate would sell random stuff at the swap meet… They would have the occasional plant here and there, which just seemed to spark everyone’s interest… And the rest is history… We’ve done the plants for thousands of TV shows and movies, as well as tons of celebrities and legends… I grew up in this place and now kids are here also… And we’ve just recently expanded last year with a New Showroom filled with the most amazing Vintage Planters, Furniture and Curiosities… We are gearing up for our 50 years anniversary next year…

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
There have of course been many obstacles and roadblocks along the way, but that’s how we learn and grow… Sometimes it’s smooth and sometimes it’s bumpy, but you take the good with the bad… God has definitely blessed us beyond our expectations, and He continues to do so…

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize in Rare Plants and Trees… I create super weird, odd and strange arrangements out of some pretty insane plants from all over the world… We’re actually known for being the most Unusual and Exotic Plant Store around… My work has been featured in tons of TV shows and movies over the past decades… As well as countless homes and commercial properties… And many, many Celebrities… We have things that no one else has… I kinda have the dream job…
