“Be honest about your environment and ability to care for your plants before bringing them into your space.”

Favourites: The majority of my 85 plant-children were adopted into the family via clippings from friends or by me saving a plant left on someones stoop. While many of those plants are not the most visually ‘unique’ or ‘original’, they all have a ‘unique’ story beyond the foliage that is special to me – plus they were ZERO DOLLARS! Those are my favorite plants – Pam, Carolyn, Giancarla, Irena – the ones that tell a story. And are literally priceless!

Favourites: I’m a definitely a lover of all plants, but cacti have always been my favorite. I just love the wide variety and uniqueness of every single one of them.
“I’m constantly moving around plants depending on the day and the type of picture I want to take, haha!”
Paul Thompson, 34, El Salvadoran

Favourites: My favorite plants are my Monstera deliciosa, Sansevieria samurai, and Tillandsia xerographica. They’re all unique in their own respect, low maintenance, and visually appealing.
“Although I am a 6th generation Arizonan I am not a lover of cacti (I know, I know, sorry).”

My most treasured plants are the heirlooms that have been passed down to me. One of them has been in the family for 6 generations.
Introducing People with Plants Art
Amy from Girls with Plants and I have teamed up to curate a collection of people with plants themed art. The Instagram account will showcase a range of different media and styles from all over the world and focus on diversity.
We have so much art saved in our accounts, often inspired by the images we post, so we created this account to bring them to you.
We look forward to seeing the People with Plants Art Community grow! (more…)
