Hi There!

Welcome! I’m so happy you found your way here! I'm Alessia Resta, the creator behind Apartment Botanist.

I live in NYC with my boyfriend, Micah, two dogs, Zeus & Pachino, and 175+ plants! Oh, by the way, did I mention I keep and care for all these plant babies in my 750 sqft NYC apartment? It’s definitely a journey with a lot of trial and error which I love sharing with my fellow plant lovers on Instagram and now, here on my site. I can’t wait to share ideas and methods that have worked for me and some which have not gone so well. Whether you’re a new plant parent or a seasoned professional, I hope my experiences can help you with your own plant journey! Follow my Instagram, @apartmentbotanist, for current info, and to stay up-to-date on new plant arrivals. Subscribe below to receive notifications when posts goes live!
