In 2012, I listed several potted herbs on an e-commerce website and marketed them as a substitute to sending cut flowers.  This is where the Plant Decor story begins.

Back then, Plant Decor wasn’t an indoor plant retailer.  In fact, Plant Decor wasn’t Plant Decor at all.  It was called Garden Gifts.  Garden Gifts was all about changing the way people gave cut flowers - by not giving them at all.  Instead, we sold potted herbs, potted flowers, and other tropical plants that would last for years, instead of a matter of weeks.  While it seemed like a great idea to me at the time, as I received more and more orders, one day, I realized that I had missed something all along.  My customers weren’t buying their plants for someone else, they were buying them for themselves!  This is when Plant Decor was born. 

Plant Decor was a pioneer in online plant retail.  As a result, I was regularly faced with many challenges, many unknowns, and many obstacles.  Running an indoor plant store was going to be a lot of work, but I was determined to make it happen.  From writing about hundreds of different plants, to taking pictures of current inventory, to answering all customer service inquiries, I had to recreate the visual, social, and tactile experience of plant shopping on a computer screen.  This was no easy task, but with every order, every review, and every piece of feedback, I made improvements. 

Ultimately, more and more people became comfortable with the idea of buying plants online.  Maybe this was just a sign of the times, but I’m going to take some credit for it too!

Since its early days, Plant Decor has grown so much, and I’m so lucky to have witnessed its growth first-hand.  Over the course of 8 years, we have worked on so many fascinating projects, and I have gotten the chance to meet and work with so many incredible people.  From our growers, to those working at our partner greenhouses, to our team members, I am humbled everyday by your support and your faith in me and this company. 

And to our customers - from those who recently decided to spruce up their home office, to those who have placed regular orders since day 1, I am eternally grateful for your support, and I cannot thank you enough.  Your stories, kindness, and enthusiasm for indoor gardening inspire me everyday, and I can truly say that I would not be here without each and every one of you.

While I am extremely sad to bring an end to Plant Decor, I am also excited for what lies ahead.  The last eight years have allowed me to grow in so many different ways, and those skills and memories will stay with me forever.  Plant Decor has and will always have a special place in my heart, and I look forward to seeing you all very soon. 


Thanks for everything.

-Alex
