Interview with a Plant Parent: Justin
1. Tell us a little about yourself!
Hi lovely plant people! I’m Justin, your local plant dad in Melbourne.
2. What got you into the plant hobby?
My grandma was the person that got me into this plant hobby. She had this beautiful garden full of flowering plants and orchids that made city living so much nicer. Since then I’ve always been nurturing plants as a reminder of my grandma ❤️
3. What is your most favourite indoor plant you have at the moment?
I could be sitting here forever telling you the list of my favourites but I would say monstera has always been my favourite. The way they grow, their foliage and huge jungle vibe aerial roots, I cannot get over it.
4. What is the next indoor plant in your wishlist?
I would love to collect some more anthuriums, especially the silver blush. Look it up and maybe this will be on your wishlist too 😜
5. Share with us one or more of your best plant care tips.
People often forget that plants need a good root system to thrive and grow so my best advice is to make sure you look after them roots. Healthy, established root system will be your plant best friend 👏🏼
