Welcome to The Plant Kit! A wee online business based in Auckland, New Zealand. I'm so excited that you have stopped by. I started the Plant Kit in 2021 when I decided to mash my hobby for plants, drawing and painting together. I enjoy sharing my love through my gorgeous products and I hope that it brings you all some joy.
Inspiration Behind the Name
I chose to name this side hustle of mine 'The Plant Kit' because I thought, "how cool would it be to receive a plant gift kit, something like a survival kit but for your plants". Kind of like a goodie bag!
I had already started drawing art prints, my Aunty and sister had introduced me to painting pots, and all I needed was the plant itself. Voila! A cute wee plant kit bundled together with a lot of love. Perfect for gifting to your plant loving friends.
Aside from that, the 'Kit' part is also a play on words with my last name.
Little Bit About Me
My love for plants started with a peace lily back in 2019, and a few years later, my collection has grown to around ~70 plants. When do we call this an addiction?!
I have always loved being creative and lockdown gave me the time to really focus on getting this set up. It's been so much fun and have loved meeting all the kind and caring people along the way.
I do actually have a full time job too, so please be patient with me if I don't reply straight away. I'll try my best though! These hand made goodies also take a lot of time to make, which is why I only make small batches at a time.
Thank you for joining me on this creative journey of mine.
