Growing A Jungle In My New York Apartment

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

A model has created an oasis in the middle of New York City by cramming 500 plants into her apartment. Self confessed “crazy plant lady” Summer Rayne Oakes decided to turn her Brooklyn apartment into a forest after her roommate moved out six years ago. Since then she has expanded the collection in her 1,200 square foot apartment and now has more than 150 plant species including a full forest wall, pineapple plants and even a banana tree.

    Are there any insect issues? With that many plants I’d imagine there’d be insects on the bed and creepy crawlies everywhere.

    Matthew 6:19-21
    Treasures in Heaven
    Jesus said to them:
    19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

    O.m.g you are "The" perfect woman. I grew up in Ireland, now I live in the city ( u.k ) and if I’m around concrete for to long I tend to go …nuts!!😆, as soon as I’m around the ocean or countryside I feel like I can breathe again. Love what you’ve done, will be following your lead, maybe not quite as many plants though😁. X

  16. Marlene Plantkins on March 4, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Wow – but isnt water consensating constantly at your windows? How about mould in your apartment? I don’t even have a fraction of the amount of plants and I’m already struggling :D🌱

    I want my indoors to look like this, and my yard full of veggies and fruit trees. A nice flower patch to attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Just picturing it makes me feel so good.
