Favourites: At the moment it’s our huge Alocasia Morocco. It creates a jungle atmosphere by itself. And we love our Araucaria heterophylla for giving a Nordic touch to our bedroom.


Dennis and Lion say: 

We don’t have a strict watering routine. To check our plants is just part of our everyday life. But we actual misting our plants a lot as we do have quite a few tropical ones.

As we have a passion for design our plants have to fit our style. So before we buy a plant we think about where to place it. We love Nordic design so we like plants that impress by simplicity: green leaves are still beautiful. Pretty much all Philodendrons and Alocasias, Monstera deliciosa or Sansevieria fit in pretty good. Plants bring colour to our home which is otherwise dominated by white and grey.

Be brave! A lot of plants are stronger and more adaptable than we think. We for example are currently experimenting with growing our orchids in water – and it works.
