In the past couple of years, potted plants have taken over social media. It seems as though everyone has a Monstera Deliciosa or a Chinese Money Plant on their work desk or living room window. And this trend makes a lot of sense – more and more people live in urban areas with very little nature around them, and our long work hours mean having a pet is simply too hard. So how do we get some nature into our homes without taking on too much responsibility? In a pot! But no matter how big of a plant person you are – there’s nobody that’s more devoted to plants than Summer Rayne Oaks.
Summer is a model, Youtuber, and environmentalist with a life-long love of plants, especially potted plants. Her goal in life is to celebrate nature and introduce it to our modern, urban lifestyle.
Summer (yes, that is the name her parents gave her) has always loved nature, and she even studied biology and botany in university. She wanted to continue her education and become a scientist, but she soon realized her real goal in life was to educate the general public. She’s been working with scientists, nursery owners, and activists to help spread the gospel of the urban jungle.
And the most insane detail is her own plants– Summer has over 1,000 of them in her small Brooklyn apartment! Talk about an urban jungle!
