As a plant lover you’re probably very involved with your plants. Of course you want them to grow well, stay green and alive for as long as possible. And every plant parent has its tricks for that. We listed 3 funny things people do to help their plants grow:
Talk to them
Complimenting and talking to your plants as if they’re your children. You may not want to do that if you have visitors over, but if you’re alone with your plants, you do. Admit it! And occasionally petting and kissing your plants isn’t weird either, we heard from reliable sources. 😉
Christan Summers, the co-founder of the Tula House plant store in Brooklyn, always puts on background music. “It’s not scientifically proven, but we believe that playing music helps plants grow”.

Tell me honestly, do you give your plants names? You’re definitely not the only one! Summer Rayne Oakes is an environmentalist who has more than 600 houseplants, most of whom have a name. In a blog she explains that thinking of cheeky names for plants is a way to feel a little more connected to them. And therefore you’ll never forget to water them. Smart, right? She says: “Get creative! Check out the coolest baby names or steal your favorite celebrity’s name and give it a twist, like Nicholas Sage or Keanu Leaves. 😉 ”
