Girl Grows More Than 500 Plant In Her Apartment (16 pics)

Environmental scientist Summer Rayne Oakes lives in a 1,200 square-foot (111 square meters) apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where she managed to put 500 different plants. There is even an entire vegetable garden growing in her closet!
 

“When my roommate moved out nearly six years ago it took me a few months to recognize that I could make the place my own”

“The first thing I did was go out and get a plant”

“The first one I got was a Ficus lyrata (Fiddleleaf fig) that was around 1 meter tall. Now it’s probably around 4.5 meters”

“When my dad retired, we decided to build our first DIY project together—a mason jar plant garden”

“As I moved more into the area of sustainable food systems, it seemed natural to have an herb and vegetable garden”

“I don’t have any land, so I decided to convert my closet into a kitchen grow garden”

“When I introduced food plants into my home, I started to attract more pesky bugs, so I’ve introduced some beneficial insects which have been…keeping noshing plant insects at bay”

“I think that the only way I’ve really been able to survive in New York is by surrounding myself with plants”
