Leading the busy young professional life often means that free time is at a premium, as is living space. It’s just not that realistic to plant a garden, let alone keep house plants. I’m sure many of us can count on both hands the number of times we’ve returned home from a busy work week or vacation to find all our pots and baskets full of wilted and dead plants.
If this sounds like you, then seek out Kyle Chow, the owner of Plant in Inglewood, who has given us black thumbs another option to introduce landscape into our lives without any fuss.
There’s something instantly relaxing about walking into Plant, where you’ll find a gorgeous display of air plants, cacti, succulents and tropical flora. With the aesthetically pleasing layout of the store and the wonderfully curated collection of terrariums, art and vintage finds, it’s not surprising to learn that Chow attended the Alberta College of Art and Design.
Working in greenhouses when growing up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Chow has always had an interest in plants, and what started as a part time hobby gifting beautiful terrariums to friends and family slowly grew into his full-time business.
Next time you’re in need of some greenery that doesn’t require too much love or attention, keep in mind that cacti are always a safe option, requiring little water. Air plants are also easy to keep alive and only require a gentle mist with a spray bottle once a week. Even if you’ve never owned cacti or air plants, you can find all the care instructions on the Plant website that walks you through how to best manage everything you purchase.
You can also take advantage of the DIY workshops that happen regularly where you can learn how to build your very own terrarium, bee house or something else that incorporates your latest vintage find. This is YP gardening at its best.
