I created this shop to cater towards the houseplant-loving community that I found online and on social media. I started selling plants that I propagated and grew from seeds and bulbs as a small side hustle while working my day job in 2018. What started as a small hobby grew into something much more by 2019. I bought a greenhouse for my backyard and after a lot of trial and error I can now successfully call it a working greenhouse. By 2020, my husband and I welcomed our child into the world that changed my busy 9-5 work life to an equally busy (but in a different way) stay-at-home mom life. With this new shift in work-life balance, I found myself with more time on my hands to really put forth my energy into buying, growing and selling houseplants locally in Pittsburgh.
