PLANTZ Growth During COVID-19

We are proud here at PLANTZ to have been featured on Fox News 13 recently and Channel 10 CBS for what we do here, and how we have been prospering during COVID-19. The reality of this scary pandemic is that we are all stuck at home. Indoor plants provide a healthier living space, and let’s face it, a more inviting one as well and we are over the moon to be a part of this huge gardening movement that the country is seeing. Many plants help with air toxins and air quality, just one of the many reasons we have seen a spike in plant sales during such an illness driven time.

As stated by Fox News 13 there has been a “boom in the garden industry,” and we are not only grateful for it, but proud to be a part of the education on how indoor plants can improve homes, mentally, emotionally, and physically for people. Helping people and educating on plants is what we love to do most.

Bring the nature into your homes during crazy quarantine, and during #earthmonth no less!

Want to learn more about us?! Follow us on social, and keep up with our blog! Of course do not forget to check out both the Fox News 13 article and the News 10 CBS article. Thank you to both for supporting our business and thank you to all of you, our Plant People! Keep on planting!

They may be separated by 800 miles, but Stephanie and Shannel are still good friends and now share a love of something else: plants.

Stephanie, a Chicago resident, saw her friend Shannel’s photo on PLANTZ – see the photo spread here – and decided to send in a photo of her Ficus lyrata, aka Fiddle Leaf Fig.

“Shannel (who lives in Stamford, CT) is a good friend of mine and I sent Sue (PLANTZ’s online plant expert) a photo as a little joke to “compete” with Shannel,” Stephanie said. “(Shannel) recently became very interested in plants and quickly turned into a wonderful plant mom who has offered me many tips and suggestions! I appreciate her (and Sue) very much.”

Stephanie recently added the Fiddle Leaf Fig to her new office. “The plant is fantastic and all of my colleagues keep commenting on how much it brightens up and adds to our space. We just moved in a couple of months ago so it was pretty barebones, but the plant is making it feel more like home! We’re so happy with it.”

Ready to welcome a plant into your home? We have all types for all manner of climates. Our online experts will not only help you pick the best plant for you, but also help with advice on caring for the plant once it arrives.

PLANTZ Marks 1,000 Fiddle Leaf Fig Sale With Prize

Roslyn received a free Ficus lyrata, aka Fiddle Leaf Fig, as the 1,000th person to buy the graceful plant from PLANTZ.

A new Ficus lyrata, aka Fiddle Leaf Fig, with all the trimmings recently arrived at the home of the winner of our contest to mark the sale of our 1,000th Fiddle Leaf Fig.

Our winner, Roslyn, loves the beauty and benefits of the Fiddle Leaf Fig.

“I picked a Fiddle Fig Leaf because of its aesthetic quality and since they have broad leaves, I think it will be good to purify the air in my apartment,” she says.
She has already felt the difference.

“The air in the room is so much fresher. I also feel the room is more complete and alive.”
Roslyn got a 12-inch Ficus lyrata, soil sleuth, Dufmod basket and moss as the 1,000th customer to buy a Fiddle Leaf Fig from PLANTZ.com.

Breaking the millennial barrier on Fiddle Leaf Fig sales comes on the heels of Plantz.com shipping to all 48 lower states (and Alaska too) – a milestone we passed earlier this year.

The Fiddle Lea Fig, our top seller, has grown in popularity over the last decade, with the majestic plant a staple of home and garden magazine shoots and movies.

“It used to be that the Fiddle Leaf Figs were only available for industry insiders and designers,” says Steve Stanford, PLANTZ.com president. “When we figured out how to box them and ship them nationwide, it opened the door for plant lovers everywhere to get one. Hitting this milestone is exciting. The best part is getting customers’ reaction when they open a box and big, healthy Ficus pops out and into their homes. It’s really, really gratifying.”

The Fiddle Leaf Fig is available in three sizes in varying heights and two styles; standard tree form and bush. A standard tree is more popular while a bush will have leaves all the way to the base. The larger size (in a 14-inch grow pot) is available in tree and bush form, while the midsize (in a 12-inch grow pot) is only available as a tree and the smallest (in a 10-inch grow pot) is available as a bush.

PLANTZ takes Pride of Place at Atlanta Showhouse Tour

Janet Craig Carmen
ZZ Plant

What better way to show off a home than adding a little green?

Veteran interior designer Katja Lauterbach certainly thought so when she took on the job of decorating a home for Atlanta Magazine’s Home Modern Style Showhome tour. Needing a few quality plants for the prestigious tour, Katja turned to PLANTZ.

Katja’s design featured two Janet Craig Carmens, two ZZ plants and a Giganta Palm, all in 10-inch grow pots. The home tour was part of the Modern Atlanta Design Festival in June which showcases the latest in modern design in Atlanta.

The designer had no qualms about picking PLANTZ for the Showhome tour, which drew thousands of visitors. She’s had a Monstera from PLANTZ in her home for almost a year. “It came in perfect condition. I then ordered a Fiddle Leaf Fig for a client for a project and had the same (great) experience.”

Katja favors greenery in her projects “so that’s why I went to PLANTZ for help with Modern Style Showhome.”

Her design drew an overwhelmingly positive response from the more than 1,200 people who toured the home she was chosen to design, one of several on the tour. “(The public) loved it. They loved that we had plants in our design with some people even asking if the plants were real.”

Plants will continue to play a role in her future designs says the European native. Not only do they add life “but they go with every design,” Katja says.

You can catch Katja’s design in the fall issue of Atlanta Magazine which is available online here.

You can also visit Katja’s website here.
