Hello. My name is Melanie Azcuna and I am the founder and CEO at THE HOUSE OF PLANTS.
I am super excited to open my Atelier (May 2020) at the Bonita Professional Center. Something great came out of this pandemic after all!
I started this venture in March 23, 2018 because my daughter inspired me to. She was asking one Sunday afternoon if she too has a green thumb like me and so we took a trip to Home Depo and decided after that very afternoon of gardening to share this love with others. It was me finding ways to bond with her too that didn't involve internet or tv...
I originally got into plants back in Philippines while still in High School as one of my daily tasks was tending to my mother’s over 100 plant collection.
lAll my life I have felt an incredible connection to nature. I remember purposely going the long way to my friend’s house so I could pass a wall covered in bougainvillea and take in its beautiful bright colors and delicate flowers. I have always had a sense of awareness that the plants I enjoyed, enjoyed my presence just as much. Plants and people are connected, and together we thrive. I am extremely passionate about environmental sustainability, conservation, and restoration. My goal is to work with companies and organizations that bring plants and people together. The world is filled with so much magic and I believe plants are one of the most magical things on this planet. I believe if we can strengthen the connection we have with plants, we can strengthen the connection we have with the rest of the planet. With this connection, we can love and protect the place we call home. I have a degree in Environmental Science and diverse experience working with plants and people. I want to take everything I have learned thus far and apply it into making the world a greener, healthier, and happier place for all its inhabitants. I am incredibly excited to work with The House of Plants and help bring real plants and real people together.
Everything we do here is geared towards a sustainable lifestyle. We use mostly terra cotta pots and ceramic pots except for when it is recycled plastic pots. Besides terra cotta pots are also good for the plants it retains water that can be absorbed by plants later if needed. I also do not use artificial pesticides or fertilizers. I use organic compost soil as it is rich in nutrients for the plants.
