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! Houseplant Homebody is the best community for ALL THINGS PLANTS.

As much as we all LOVE houseplants, pests are honestly inevitable. It shouldn't be something that discourages you and hopefully this will help you with any pest problem you have with your houseplants! In this podcast we will talk about what the most common pests are, how to know whether or not you have them, treatment and prevention.  If you have any plant questions, follow Houseplant Homebody on Instagram or Facebook for more information or check out https://www.houseplant-homebody.com/ for info and the corresponding blog post!

Fiddle Leaf Figs are BY FAR the most popular houseplant around the world.  You can open any home magazine and you will more than likely find one of these in some of the pictures. They make a big impact in a space by filling any corner with lush, large green leaves. In this podcast, I discuss sunlight and water requirements, propagation, questions from Instagram followers and much more!

In this podcast and blog I talk about what "toxic" means, toxic houseplants, non-toxic houseplants, ways to prevent your furry friends from nibbling on your plants and I address all questions I received from followers on Instagram. This podcast and blog DOES NOT include everything so please do your research before bringing a new houseplant home.

When I first got into houseplants, people always talked about how hard African Violets were.  To my surprise, it wasn't that hard for me at all! Maybe it was luck? Either way I want to share what I did and what I learned from my research! In this podcast, I discuss sunlight and water requirements, propagation, flowers, questions from Instagram followers and much more!

In honor of my sister and I's birthday week, I thought it was the perfect time to release a podcast and blog all about the story behind Houseplant Homebody and my background!  I am VERY happy to do another podcast with my twin sister, Lindsay, because she knows me better than anyone! We dove into where I started, my education, my work experience, my personal experience, how Houseplant Homebody was started and the future of Houseplant Homebody. I hope you enjoy the conversation between my sister and I as much as I did!

I was so happy to do a podcast about these low maintenance plants with my twin sister, Lindsay! She was the perfect person to do it with because she doesn't have a lot of experience with houseplants, giving podcast a couple different perspectives! The subject of low maintenance houseplants has always been a hot topic of conversation between beginners and expert houseplant lovers alike! There are definitely more than 10 houseplants that are fairly easy and many sources say different things (none of them are wrong!). In this podcast, I have given you a look into my top 10 low maintenance houseplants based on my experiences with each of them and a different perspective from a beginner, my twin sister, Lindsay's experiences. My top 10 low maintenance houseplants are Snake Plant, ZZ Plant, Philodendron, Agave, Hoya, Pothos, Peperomia, Dieffenbachia, Syngonium and Monstera.

Peperomia has many varieties all with different textures, colors, shapes and sizes. This happens to be a great starter plant and a great plant for any experienced houseplant lover! Your host, Holly, discusses sunlight and water requirements, humidity, propagation and much more! Go to https://www.houseplant-homebody.com/ for info and the corresponding blog post!

Diversity is definitely one of the perks of having Hoya plants! You can have different colors, growth habits, leaf shapes and flower colors all within the Hoya genus. Your host, Holly, discusses the many varieties, sunlight and water requirements, humidity, propagation and much more! Go to www.houseplant-homebody.com for info and the corresponding blog post!

Calathea and Goeppertia have some of the most unique patterns and colors.  These plants are definitely for the tolerant, understanding and experienced houseplant owner.
