Have you seen this orange flower before? It's botanical name is Leonotis leonurus but it's also known as The Staircase Plant. You'll find it at Dennis Edwards Flowers.
An alternative to Physalis if you're looking for that lantern shape is Sandersonia. In fact its common name is Chinese lantern lily.
Just how striking are these 'Flash Eye' roses at Dennis Edwards Flowers?! Bright orange petals surround their green centres.

...where they also have another air purifying fern. With sword-shaped, ruffled leaves, it's called Asplenium nidus 'Crispy Wave'. And it's also known as Bird's Nest Fern.
The last fern for this report is this striking Staghorn fern (Platycerium). By the way, if you missed it first time round, here's a link to a report about lots more ferns, which you can find at Nine Elms.
I was thrilled to see Ceropegia (String of hearts) at Quality Plants too! Just how charming are their tiny heart shaped leaves?
Next door at Arnott & Mason, you'll find another plant which is appearing a great deal online recently, in flat lay images and bridal bouquets. It's Tillandsia xerographica, also known as the air plant.
On the completely other end of the spectrum texture wise, are these exquisite violas in metal pots at A Goodchild.
