Houseplant Homebody

Welcome all plant lovers, plant experts, plant enthusiasts and beginners! I am your host, Holly, the creator of Houseplant Homebody! I am so pumped to share my adventures with all things plants! I am not an expert by any means but join me in my ongoing journey of slowly becoming an expert! I have been passionate about all things plants for YEARS. With everything that I have explored on social media or plant websites I realized there seems to be ONE THING MISSING… a US Midwestern perspective in the amazing world of social media outlets, podcasts and blogs. I am a proud Wisconsinite and we have a different and somewhat complicated environment for growing houseplants & plants! BUT just because we have a different environment doesn’t mean we can’t learn from the experts on the East and West coasts! Want to join my adventure? Subscribe to this podcast, follow @houseplanthomebodyllc Houseplant Homebody on Instagram and Facebook and go follow my personal plant inspirations on Pinterest! And DON’T FORGET to get involved! Comment on posts or pictures, ask me questions, provide your best plant advice or tag @houseplanthomebodyllc in your posts or comments. There is so much to learn in the plant world and I want to encourage everyone to soak it up!
