What is your favorite kind of plants?
Cacti! All of them, the bigger the better!

What is your spirit plant?
Philodendron, they're common but like to crawl and have heart shaped leaves to spread their love ;)

Tell us about when you first fell in love with plants?
Even though I've been surrounded by plants for the major part of my childhood and worked at a garden center as a teenager, I fell in love with plants at my first visit of the Jardin Exotique in Monaco. I loved it and wanted to create something like that at home too, so I brought home a few cactus paddles (not from the Jardin!) and they took off like crazy.

Tell us about your favorite ways to decorate with plants?
My favorite way to decorate with plants is to create small plant gangs, small gatherings of plants. The different colors, shapes, and pots make them stand out more.

Why do you feel houseplants are necessary in your home?
They bring life to our home, change all the time and teach me how to be patient because they take their time to grow.

What are your must have accessories for the perfect plant corner?
Beautiful plant pots (keeping them in their plastic grow pots is a no-go in my book!) and good-looking misters and watering cans! If you pick accessories that look good, you don't have to hide them in a cupboard, but you always have them at hand. Practical & pretty ;)

Do you have any tips for aspiring plant lady?
Start with a few plants and find out if you like having them around and grow your collection slowly. If you don't want to wait for a real jungle vibe at home: go for a few older oversized plants (like Ficus elastica or Monstera deliciosa) that are real statement pieces. Also, exchange cuttings with fellow plant lovers. It's so much more fun if you can share your love for plants with others!
