We asked Nia about her plant parenthood and here's what she had to share.
💚How did you become a plant parent?
Growing up I was always in the garden with my mom or friends parents. My babysitter was a plant parent and I loved the way her home looked. So when I moved into my own place I got a few plants, then a few more and a few more. Now I've lost track of how many plants I have! They give me peace.
💚What do you love most about plants?
💚What is your favorite plant and why?
💚How do you feel about being a part of the plant parent community?Being a part of the plant community has been wonderful. I have recently joined groups on Instagram and Facebook. I have met some amazing people with common interests. We share tips, products, and creative methods to better our plants. Its been great making friends with other plant parents in the community.
💚How has Fleur & Co. supported your plant parenthood?Fleur introduced me to new plants/products that I now love and cannot continue plant parenting life without. Fleur makes it easy to get my plants, while supporting all of my plant parent needs. The team has also helped me grow my Instagram by reposting my videos which has been super helpful.
💚What kind of plant parent would you describe yourself as?I would describe myself as a cool plant parent, not a regular plant parent. I make fun videos on Instagram with my plants, and keep up with trendy social videos. Even in my care routine I am very relaxed, I don't stress about yellow leaves, or dying plants. If they die, well it just means I can just get a new plant!
💚If you could give 1 tip about being a plant parent what would it be?If I could give 1 tip to a new plant parent, I would say "plants will die and that is okay". I remember when I got my first couple of plants, and one of them died. I took it so hard, I became worried about my other plants. I was really hard on myself and thought I was a terrible plant parent. I put myself on a plant ban, now looking back I know the soil was not appropriate. I learned from that and I continue to learn from my mistakes.
