Luminita Nicorici has been running Primitiv Plants for 5 years now to bring joy to nature lovers. She has over a hundred plants at home, she plays and constantly experiments.

If you live in an apartment, chances are there’s not a lot of landscaping going on. House plants add the greenery that you might miss in an urban area, they are natural air purifiers and add a pop of color to your indoors.

Plants make us feel more connected to our roots, so there’s a mental health upside to it. “House plants bring us back to the basics,” said Michael Palumbo, director of growing produce for Whole Foods Market. “It brings us back to what it means to be alive and to grow. Cultivating plants at home is a way of taking control of our health and our lives.”
