Looking up houseplant care can be CONFUSING!

Endless do's and don'ts.
Fragmented tips and tricks.

What's actually important? What actually matters?

What do I need to know for an
ENJOYABLE and REWARDING houseplant experience?

You need the ESSENTIALS:

Houseplant care is confusing because of the outdated, one-size-fits-all advice you’re reading.

• Careful not to overwater, but water thoroughly.
• Needs bright indirect light but avoid direct sun.
• This plant thrives in low light.
• If leaves turn yellow, you're overwatering.

Not only is this advice VAGUE, it makes you WORRY about every little thing.

Let's work SMARTER (not harder) with plant care:

I can teach you the PRINCIPLES behind houseplant care so you won't feel like you're just blindly following instructions.

Understanding the PRINCIPLES will empower you for LONG-TERM enjoyment of houseplants.

Traditional plant tips and tricks never really address the LONG-TERM relationship you can have with a plant. My course will give you the right mindset and tactics for a long-lasting, rewarding hobby.

This isn't the same old, outdated houseplant care tips and tricks - the "how not to kill your houseplants" approach. Those were written when houseplants were just sold as decor.

This is a new, holistic approach to houseplant care, based on real observations and scientific reasoning.

It’s an updated, SENSIBLE look at how to cultivate a rewarding hobby with houseplants.

Hi, I'm Darryl.

Creator of House Plant Journal and author of 'The New Plant Parent'

I started House Plant Journal as a way to document the life of my houseplants and make detailed observations on their growth, changes, decline, and in some cases, death.

The more I searched for houseplant care advice, I kept finding the same BORING philosophy: here's a piece of decor, and here's how you maintain it.

Houseplants can be so much more!

I've answered THOUSANDS of houseplant questions.

When I saw the same kinds of questions over and over, I decided to develop a new approach to houseplant care - one that brings true enjoyment but keeps expectations in line with how Nature works.
