She lives in a 750 square foot apartment in New York City and she has over 200 plants, in addition to her boyfriend and 2 dogs!
A remote job inspired her to add more plants to her home and to also learn more about caring for the plants. Allesia says she loves how every day there is something new and exciting happening in her home as the plants grow. She has managed to get all her plants on the same watering schedule, which can be accomplished in 2 to 3 hours.
The plant enthusiast will even sometimes bring some plants into the shower "to really get that tropical experience."
Being such a dedicated Plant Mom has helped her develop better patience and deal with situations not working out. Allesia explains she has been able to bring some of the core values up caring for plants -- propagating and restarting -- into her daily life. "It's okay to start over when something doesn't work out," she tells Dr. Ian Smith.
If you are looking to bring some green in your home, Allesia recommends starting with a snake plant, which she explains is forgiving, easy to care for, and will help you develop your confidence as a Plant Parent.
