Growing a Jungle in My New York Apartment →

29th April 2019

Ever since moving in to a new home with my girlfriend, I’ve been thinking of ways to add a bit more nature. We both like the look of plants, and having quite a lot of green in the house, but she would prefer fake ones, and I would prefer all real plants.

As I was watching videos about what other people have inside their house, I discovered a woman called Summer Rayne Oakes (@homesteadbrooklyn on Instagram). A channel called Barcroft TV have a great video of her apartment in New York, and shows how she fits in over 150 different plant species.

It’s absolutely incredible.

While I wouldn’t mind living in this apartment, I’m pretty sure whatever I go with, won’t be as crazy.
