How do you ensure the quality of your plants?
We take great care in ensuring that our plants are of the highest quality. To achieve this, we have carefully selected a partner who provides us with the finest foliage in the industry, grown by small local family-run farms.
Before any plant leaves our greenhouse, it undergoes a rigorous inspection process to check for any signs of pests, diseases, or other issues. This ensures that only healthy plants make it to our customers.
Once the plant has been inspected and approved, it is carefully and artfully packaged to ensure a safe and secure journey to its new home.

What are the benefits of indoor plants for health and wellbeing?
With all of the benefits we've found in houseplants, we fully believe it's time to bring eco-therapy indoors. While there are many benefits of houseplants, here are a few examples:
- Improved mental health: Being around nature has been shown to have a positive impact on mental health. Indoor plants can provide a sense of calm and tranquility, which can help reduce anxiety and depression symptoms.
- Stress reduction: Research has shown that indoor plants can help reduce stress levels and promote relaxation. This is likely due to the calming effect that nature has on our mind and body.
- Increased productivity: Having plants in your workspace has been shown to improve productivity and creativity. This could be due to the fact that plants can help reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being.
- Better sleep: Plants release oxygen at night, which can improve the air quality in your bedroom and promote a better night's sleep.
- Air purification: Plants naturally purify the air by absorbing pollutants and releasing oxygen. This can improve the air quality in your home, which can have a positive impact on respiratory health.

How is mindfulness relevant to indoor plants?
Mindfulness is the act of being present and aware in the current moment. Caring for houseplants can be a great way to practice mindfulness, as it requires you to slow down and focus on the task at hand. From watering and pruning to dealing with pests and diseases, tending to your plants provides ample opportunity to practice being mindful and fully engaged in the present. By incorporating indoor plants into your daily routine, you can cultivate a greater sense of mindfulness and overall well-being.
