Like many of us in the past couple years, you may have recently became a new plant parent.

First of all, congrats to you for making it through a pretty weird winter – especially if it was your first! Wipe your tears from the plant babies that perished, it happens to us all! Now you can rejoice for the green cherubs that did make it through the frigid cold just in time for Earth Day 2022. But as you head into your next year of plant parenthood, it doesn’t hurt to get some inspiration from fellow plant lovers and what they’re doing to make their herbage thrive.

Studies show that taking care of plants can improve your mental health. They’re a wonderful reminder to stay in the present moment, promoting stress relief and boosting the air quality. As a plant parent myself, watering and talking to my plant babies is one of the quickest ways to put me into a good mood. After three wonderful years with (most) of my original cohort in tow, I couldn’t imagine life without taking care of my baby greens.

Whether you’re figuring out how to care for succulents or how to start a garden, it can get pretty overwhelming from time to time. Luckily, there’s lots of people out there that are in the same pot as you! From discovering unique greenery with Alexis Nikole Nelson to receiving a succulent and a hug from Terrell Davis, the wave of plant parents that have sprung will keep you educated and entertained. Here are 41 POC plant parents to follow on TikTok and YouTube.
