The Plant Society
Meet Jason Chongue from The Plant Society... Green thumb extraordinaire!
TDC - Tell us about your brand. What do you do?
The Plant Society has been born from a passion for design and plants, but also to create a plant community, or as we like to call it, a ‘plant social network’. Our goal is to nurture and preserve rare and interesting plant species for future generations and share the knowledge and skills required to grow them with our community. By celebrating plants and all things green, we hope to establish a knowledge bank of skills and techniques that can be enjoyed by all plant enthusiasts, whatever their skill level.
Alongside our plant foraging we are actively involved on a range of events and projects to promote positive and open conversations around greenery. We collaborate closely, designing greener spaces, both internal and external, with architects, interior designers, council and developers.
TDC - What sets your brand apart?
We make sure to tailor our service for varied industries and spaces. There is never one simple answer when it comes to indoor greenery, so we work alongside our clients to design the right solution and maintenance service for their needs.
TDC - What design ethos do you live by?
We aim to motivate a considered use of indoor greenery in our urban context. The more greenery we use in our indoor spaces, both public and private, the lusher our city will become.
TDC - What's your favourite plant and why?
Devil’s Ivy (Epipremnum aureum) is one of my favourite plants to use in interiors. With spaces becoming smaller they are the prefect plant to suspend from ceilings and cascade off shelves.
TDC - What plans do you have for the future?
We’re set to open our Sydney store within weeks and are excited to be launching our book in the UK and USA in April.
