Thriving Houseplants Made Easy: Q&A with a We The Wild Plant Specialist

Thriving Houseplants Made Easy: Q&A with a We The Wild Plant Specialist

Today, we chat with Nikita, a plant care specialist at We The Wild, to grab some valuable tips and tricks for becoming a confident plant parent and accomplishing all your in-home jungle dreams! 

Q: We'd love to learn more about your plant parent journey! What sparked your interest in owning and caring for plants?

A: Nikita: When I started working in floristry, I got to see how plants and flowers really work up close. That experience made me fall in love with them, and that's what got me into owning and caring for plants myself.

Q: We've all made mistakes. What was yours when you were a plant newbie?

A: Nikita: Using the wrong pots! I lost so many plants because I used pots without drainage holes and didn't adjust my care routine for them. It was a tough lesson to learn.

Q: What's your go-to recommendation for plant parenting beginners?

A: Nikita: Pothos! They're incredibly tough and super self-sufficient, making them perfect for beginners. They're hard to kill, look beautiful as they grow, and it's fun to see all the different colours and varieties they come in.

Q: What's your favourite We The Wild product and why?

A: Nikita: Support Pellets! They're the bread and butter of plant health. They transform the soil to be like it is in nature and contain mycorrhizal fungi, which help plants absorb nutrients and water better. Plus, they work in hydroponics too. They're my all-time favourite!

Q: Any secret techniques for plant parent success?

A: Nikita: Bottom watering is the best method for plants! I highly recommend it because it takes a lot of the stress out of perfecting your watering routine.

Q: What exciting plant projects are you currently working on?

A: Nikita: Right now, I'm raising my Monstera Albo from a little baby cutting in a jar to a big, beautiful plant.

Q: Is there anything else you'd like to share with our budding greenthumbs?

A: Nikita: You may lose some plants along the way, and it can be disheartening when it happens. But remember, each plant teaches you something new! Keep going, you've got this.


We hope this helps you on your plant parenting journey. Remember, wild plants, happier you!
