Welcome to Dewey Plants!

My love for houseplants started with a cactus.

A cactus named Greg.

The year was 2017, my best friend was graduating from college in Michigan and I drove 9 hours to be there for her graduation. Her parents brought me a gift – Greg – and that transpired my houseplants hobby. Now I have over 30 houseplants and this is a space to document them and house their care tips and tricks.

Research has found that plants grow better when exposed to sound, and when in nature they can find water sources by sensing vibrations in the soil.
