Small Businesses To Support: Houseplant Edition
Let's talk about some of my favorite plant related small businesses. Now more than ever it's important to shop small so let's get into it!
I have personally been making more of an effort to support small businesses. They work extremely hard and most of the time it's a one man/woman/person operation! Most small businesses start from a passion project so why wouldn't you want to support someone else's passion.
So without further ado here are some of my favorite small businesses that are related to plants!
1. The Blue Eyed Botanist
The Blue Eyed Botanist is a plant shop run by Delany Rimer, a student at Bowling Green State University with a passion for plants, reading, and mental health advocacy.
Her shop is full of houseplants, stickers, canvas totes, and more! She also has a wonderful blog where she talks about plants, books, social issues, and everything in between.
Go check her Instagram and website out!
2. Flourish and Charm
I have talked about Flourish and Charm in my Gift Guide because well...I am absolutely obsessed. Flourish and Charm is a Philadelphia-based business started by Nicole Sarnese, a jewelry designer by day and a business owner by night.
Nicole offers plant charms that take your pots from drab to fab in seconds. She also just released a jewelry line that I think is too die for. Check her out below!
3. Green Philosophy Co
Green Philosophy Co is a woman-owned, California-based small business that started out of an apartment. They offer plant-inspired decorative home decor.
Green Philosophy Co believes that nature-inspired decor can help improve people’s quality of life by boosting their moods and productivity. Plus they give back: with every purchase they plant trees!

4. The New Plant Co
The New Plant Co is a plant shop that sells through Etsy! I actually bought my Micans through them and they showed up in the best packaging I have ever seen and within 3 days. I was amazed at how fast I got my plant.
They specialize in affordable yet hard to find plants. Which personally I think is the best combo! They have a lot of amazing plants right now and a lot of them I have never been able to find in my local plant shops.
5. Kristen Junne | Monstera Socks
You have to check out Kristen Junne! She is an Etsy seller that specializes in scrunchies, socks, and more! She also uses repurposed fabric, which we stan her for!
My partner actually got me these monstera socks and I am absolutely obsessed. She also has cactus, sunflower, and butterfly socks that I also want...no NEED!! Go check out her Etsy shop below and follow her on Instagram too for shop updates!
6. Modernly Planted
Modernly Planted Is a plant decor shop based out of San Antonio, TX. They offer modern pots, plant stands, and plant accessories.
The store was founded by Fancy Plants Chic and has a lot of amazing options to choose from as well as inspiration on their Instagram. I mean there are a lot of plant goals happening on that site right now!

7. Joy Of Plants Shop
Joy of Plants Shop is an Etsy seller that I actually met through TikTok. She started her plant shop in 2020 and has absolutely flourished while also providing plant people with informative tips and tricks!
With over 7,000 sales from her shop and raving reviews you just know it's something special.

8. Venus In Vines
Venus In Vines is an Instagram account run by Nicole Defoe. She offers plant arrangements made from thrifted cups and jars (don't worry they drill holes in the bottom for drainage). Seriously these are some of the cutest arrangements I have seen. They just offer that little bit of spice everyone needs.
Venus In Vines operates out of Charlotte, NC, but does product drops on her Instagram. Follow along and be on the lookout for new products!
9. Sammijean Clay
Sammijean Clay is a small jewelry business started by Sammi, a recent graduate from St. Louis University. Sammi was able to get creative when we all had A LOT of time for it (ahem quarantine) and so SammiJean Clay was born right here in Nashville, TN!
