Video Village With Ask Chris: Jurassic Garden Going Extinct?

Rare plant enthusiast Maurice Levin fell in love with the ancient cycad plant decades ago when he spotted one in the Virgin Islands. His North Hollywood nursery, Jurassic Garden, carefully propagates endangered varieties of the spiky plant with roots that stretch back more than 280,000,000 years. Levin has lost the lease on his Stagg Street property and is looking for a new place to continue his work and to find new homes for these “living fossils,” the rarest of which sell for up to $50,000. He has another week or two left and is selling everything at a 75-80% discount.
