HOW TO LOVE YOUR PLANTS
My friend Molly moved into a new apartment last year. She went right out and spend almost two hundred dollars on house plants. Within six months, most of her plants had lost their leaves, turned brown, or fallen over. Not exactly the urban jungle of her dreams…House plants can be a key part of an emotional health care plan, but they can have the opposite effect when they’re droopy or dying.
Create a tranquil, life-filled space to come home to.
Whether your a minimalist or a maximalist, plants bring a unique energy to your space because they are actually alive! Sucking up water, moving towards the light, creating new growth from what seems like nothing; plants actually have many lessons to teach us about self-expression, resiliency, and self-care.
Pick plants that light up your space AND your heart.
Whether your a minimalist or a maximalist, plants bring a unique energy to your space because they are actually alive! Sucking up water, moving towards the light, creating new growth from what seems like nothing; plants actually have many lessons to teach us about self-expression, resiliency, and self-care. Plants have a language all of their own and you can learn it! Struggling to find the right plants for your space? Trying to keep old plants alive? Frustrated because your Rubber Tree plant just dropped every single one of it’s leaves…again? The How to Love Your Plants Mentorship is for you.
Choose the best plants for you.
Take me to a plant nursery or greenhouse and I’m a kid in a candy store. I’ll take one of everything, please! Or maybe you’ve seen a really beautiful Fiddle Leaf Fig on Pinterest and you’re dying to have one of those.
The reality is that plants are picky (just like people) and something that is lush and gorgeous in the greenhouse might quickly get sad-looking at home. Together, we’ll choose plants that will thrive in your home.
Let your plants take care of you.
Once you have plants that are right for your space, you’ll notice quietness that arises when you care for them. Suddenly, you are in a relationship with these living beings, opening the shades in the morning so they get enough light and listening for the tiniest signs of discontent.
The air in your home is certainly cleaner, but there are other intangible benefits of having house plants.
How To Love Your Plants Mentorship
Each mentorship starts with an tour of your home, either in-person or via FaceTime. We’ll take note of the light, air, and space, as well as any plants you currently own and how healthy they are. From there, you have a choice:
Work with What You’ve Got: We’ll arrange your house plants so each one is getting the ideal amount of light and air flow. We’ll design a simple and easy-to-stick to watering schedule. I’ll look closely at any distress signals (yellow or brown leaves, spots, wilting) and write up a treatment plan. We’ll check back in once a week to see how each plant is doing.
Choose the Right Plants for You: If you are new to your space or to plant-ownership, we’ll create a clear picture of what you’d like to create and then head to the greenhouse to pick out the right plants for you! We’ll arrange them to take advantage of the light and airflow in your home and I’ll leave you with a simple and easy-to-stick to watering schedule. We’ll check back in once a week to see how each plant is doing.
Thanks to the miracle of the modern internet, I’m able to work with plant-lovers all over the country via FaceTime and Skype.
Please note that this mentorship is intended to create a plant-filled space that brings you joy and peace and is NOT intended to recreate what you’ve seen on Pinterest.
Space in the Love Your Plants mentorship program is limited and therefore requires a short application. If you are interested but have questions, please shoot me an email.
