Meet the Ultimate Plant Lady

The plant trend has been on the rise for several years now. Young people all over the world are obsessed with decorating their apartments with unique plants. There are many reasons why this is happening: our hectic lifestyle makes plants easier to manage than pets, plants add a touch of nature to our otherwise nature less urban environment, it’s an ecological hobby, and it’s another retro thing from our childhoods. But one thing’s for certain: no one is as dedicated to plants as much as Summer Rayne Oaks.

A post shared by Summer Rayne Oakes (@homesteadbrooklyn) on

Summer (and yes, that’s her real name) is an ecological advocate, Youtube personality, author, and model who’s dedicated her life to the conservation and celebration of nature. After studying ecology at University, she went on a mission: to spread her love of nature throughout the world.

For summer, plants are not just a hobby: she has an ever-growing plant collection in her Brooklyn apartment, with over 1,000 plants! On her Youtube channel, she teaches about different plants and how to care for them. She also travels around the world, meets plant growers, goes to plant markets, and sets up plant swap parties in her neighborhood.

Summer proves that caring for plants isn’t difficult, and in fact, anybody could do it. Check out some of her plant collection – doesn’t t make you want to get your own plant?
