I’m Ngoc, the creator of Modern Plant Life. I’m an avid traveller, a former DIY blogger/aspiring Youtuber, and a proud Canadian, and although I love plants, I was I’m really really bad at keeping them alive. I was asked to plant sit for a friend of mine and once I realized that each plant has different needs, I’ve gone from being a serial plant killer to a modestly sufficient plant mom. I come from a family of green thumbs and apparently was not born with that gene. A few friends have called me a crazy plant lady and I’m pretty sure people were pretty sick of me sharing plant photos and talking about my plants so the only reasonable thing to do was to start this plant instagram so that they can see more of my plants. I’ve always been a maker so of course I had to make some plant accessories for my plant babies. After a few friends requested that I make items for them, the idea to turn Modern Plant Life into a little business kind of took off.
Thank you for joining me on this journey!
