So the story goes... one plant turned into two, two into four and before they knew it, North Brisbane-based Couple Bec and Greg were living in their own personal indoor jungle. As their collection continued to grow, the free space in their home started to shrink. Not wanting to limit their collecting, the plant obsessed couple took to Facebook, where they created the Houseplant Hoarders members group in hopes of finding answers to their space problems from like-minded collectors. What started off as a small local group quickly grew into an active forum, housing over 93,000 Plant Hoarders from across the globe. It was then the couple knew they weren't alone and their love for plants flourished.
Greg, a talented Tattoo Artist started to notice his work becoming more influenced by his love of botany. It was his combined passion of art and plants that lead Greg to create a series of plant-inspired art prints, which he started to sell at Tattoo Expos. As the requests for Greg's prints and pieces of the couples plant collection started to grow, so did the idea of creating an online store, but not just any online store, but one for the avid Plant Lover. After a lot of research and many hours spent in the greenhouses, the virtual doors of the Houseplant Hoarders Webstore were open in March, 2018.
Since opening the store has continued to expand an now stocks a wide range of giftware, decor items and even the couples own line of plant care products; The Hoarder's Plant Care!
