My Planty Resources

I’m often asked what products I use in my apartment or recommend to my plant friends. I also get some fantastic discounts from companies for my listeners and wanted to create a space where they are all available to you. 

So here are the planty products and projects I’m loving these days! I hope they empower and inspire you to grow your own urban jungle! 

*Some of the companies are affiliate partners, meaning Bloom and Grow Radio gets a portion of the sale, at no extra cost to you. So it’s a fun way to support the show while supporting your planty dreams! Thanks!

Grow Lights

I have three grow lights in my apartment from two amazing companies which I am obsessed with.

Limey (my indoor bearss lime tree) lives very happily under the Soltech Solution 40W Aspect Light. It comes with an easy install timer that I have on a 12 hour on/off cycle.

 I macramed the cord to make the modern, sleek light look a little more bohemian.


My low/no light kitchen (no windows in my NYC apartment) has a thriving herb garden in it because of the
Modern Sprout Grow House.

It’s such an easy installation (literally plug in and click the preset timer) and the brushed bronze finish makes it look like a piece of art!



This is my favorite DIY project so far- my planty book shelf made possible by the Modern Sprout Grow Bar!

Check out my youtube channel for a time lapse of easy, quick installation. The Grow Bar transformed my “no/low light" bookshelf into a "high light" succulent paradise.




Listen to Episode 12 of Bloom and Grow Radio where I'm joined by my favorite plant scientist, Chris from The Sill, to talk all things light, growing plants indoors and basic photosynthesis 101... and also I ask him what wattage actually is :)

Soil

I’m still experimenting with what my "go to soil" is, as I’m still a new plant parent, but these are two brands I’ve had success with so far! 

I had great success starting my tomato plants from seed with the Espoma Organic Seed Starter Mix. I love that it’s organic!

I’ve also been known to use Miracle Grow Indoor Potting Mix for my house plants. I know, it’s not fancy, but my plants seem to be happy!

Listen to Episode 08 of Bloom and Grow Radio where I have "dirty talk with Darry" from @houseplantjournal, and we talk the in's and out's of soil and dirt.

Fertilizer

My first year 6 months I didn’t really understand that you needed to fertilize houseplants… so… still blooming and growing with this! 

I first used Miracle Grow Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food and had great success with that. it is easy to dissolve the crystals in water and was very clean and odorless.

I was recently gifted some Espoma Organic Indoor Houseplant Food and I’m loving it! The bottle with it's pre-measured cap makes measuring and dispensing super easy, and I like that it’s specifically for indoor plants. 

I will probably continue to use this Espoma Indoor Houseplant Food on my house plants and use the Miracle Grow Plant Food on my outdoor balcony herb and vegetable garden this year. 

Listen to Episode 18 of Bloom and Grow Radio where I chat with The Sill's Plant Scientist, Chris Satch about why fertilizing our house plants is so important.

Favorite NYC Plant Shop & 
Online Plant Delivery Service

For anyone that listens to my show... it’s no secret that I am in love with The Sill. 

• run by a badass female entrepreneur - CHECK
• care so much about the quality of their plants - CHECK 
• believe strongly in community - CHECK
• gorgeous planty accessories - CHECK

You also will have heard their Plant Scientist, Chris Satch, on many of my episodes, and I think it’s clear how much I love him in those shows :) 

The Sill is my go to plant shop when shopping for gifts for people, as well as plants for my home (the fern and blush pot in the photo at the top of this page are both from The Sill, as well as the white, brown and terra-cotta pot next to Limey in the fertilizer photo!

I have pretty much stopped sending flowers entirely, and now send plants and succulents in The Sill’s beautiful planters to friends and family. I love that they include care cards (which are also beautifully designed) in all their orders and their shipping is on point.
