“Plants represent a real therapy for me that can alleviate many negative aspects of everyday life.”

  Andrea is a pastry chef based in Anzio, a small seaside town near Rome. Ever since he was a child, he has been fascinated by nature. Having grown up in a very green area far from the city, he was able to cultivate a passion for plants and flowers in his garden. One day, while browsing botanical subjects online, he came across the profile of jamies_jungle which inspired his interest in indoor plants.

A year ago Andrea started creating a small urban jungle in his living room where where his two Jack Russells, Molly and Lillo, live together. He really likes taking care of his plants and they reciprocate by silently releasing many positive vibrations. After a long day at work, coming home and relaxing in your own green corner is truly miraculous.

Andrea’s list of favorite plants is very long and includes Strelitzia, Ceropegia woodii and Monstera. He waters his plants and checks for the presence of parasites weekly. In the spring he changes the soil in the pots and tries to arrange his plants on various levels to give different plants shades of green depending on the species’ needs.

Andrea says: “Through the continuous research of new plants in various garden centres and the sharing on Instagram, I have gotten to know many interesting people who have my same passion.”
