Today’s episode is truly EPIC. I met up with Summer Rayne Oakes doing an in-depth tour of her incredible house in Brooklyn, NYC. Summer is known for her website, Homestead Brooklyn and her wildly-popular YouTube series, Plant One On Me. What makes her house so epic, you ask? She’s created a veritable urban jungle, with 500-700+ houseplants in just about every nook and cranny of her house. She’s growing some rare and difficult to cultivate species, but also growing in a variety of methods. From sub-irrigated plant walls, to a Biopod, to classic containers, there’s something to learn in this video, no matter what type of indoor gardening you’re into. Plus…she has Kippee the hen as a pet! I was thoroughly impressed by Summer’s breadth and depth of plant wisdom, as well as how she connects it to a deeper way of life. Truly something special. I hope you all enjoy today’s video and if you’d like more tours like this, please let me know who I should visit next!

    The amount of root pruning and repotting she must do, it's probably a neverending job.

    I'm curious: what about dampness/mould/seepage? Are there any issues with these? I love the indoor plant look; so beautiful, calming and relaxing. How wonderful to surround yourself with something you are so passionate about!
