A site for houseplant enthusiasts —
Houseplant care | Interiors | Photography | Design
The website + accompanying instagram documents my plant collection + offers plant care advice, inspiration for plant purchases + interior styling with houseplants.
Since its launch in 2017, the HPH platform provides an insight into living + working with plants. The demand for houseplants has exploded in recent years + is enjoying a sustained swell of enthusiasm; far from the short-lived millennials trend it has been branded as. This upturn in popularity signals a resurgent desire for a re-connection with nature in an increasingly environmentally aware society. I am passionate about encouraging everyone to bring a little bit of green into their homes so that they can share in the enjoyment + mindfulness that caring for plants can bring.
HPH is based around my combined interests as a researcher; in photography, design, interiors + plants. I started the blog as a creative outlet after finishing my PhD + two years later, it remains a planty journal of sorts; from recording what I’m growing, sharing, potting + propagating, to offering seasonal plant care + what to do when your monstera gets too big!
In addition to my HPH endeavours, I am a curator of ‘The Real Houseplants of Instagram’ community. As a collective we developed the website houseplantswap.com, a worldwide platform for the exchange of houseplants (non-profit).
I am a freelance copywriter for a number of houseplant websites; sharing care instructions, product descriptions + blogposts.
