Many at-home trends have surged in popularity as a result of the pandemic stay-at-home order. Here in New York, indoor planting is one of them. A new article from The New York Post states: “New Yorkers are going green while in quarantine.” And there are a lot of reasons why this micro-trend deserves all the traction.

Darryl Cheng, author of “The New Plant Parent” and creator of House Plant Journal – an online resource for sensible houseplant care, is here to share with us the art of appreciating plants, the power of house-planting on our wellbeing, as well as why you should add it to your self-care list.
