“Employees of corporate America by day, and plant lovers by night.”
“We were sitting around one Friday night, talking about work and how boring it was, and what kind of lifestyle we wanted. We threw around some ideas for an Instagram account to develop a community of like-minded people. We talked about a travel-related account, a surfing-related account, and eventually, plants came into the conversation, and we both knew immediately that that’s what we wanted to focus on. One thing led to another, and we just sort of decided to try our hands at a plant store. We got extraordinarily lucky with the retail space (we live in the building as well).
’ve been living in Ridgewood for almost 6 years and when I first moved here, it was an undiscovered gem — relatively clean, quiet, friendly, and cheap by NYC standards. Williamsburg was blowing up back then, and Bushwick was on its way, but Ridgewood was this underdog of a neighborhood. It wasn’t hip by any means, and I loved that. At the same time, I loved watching it change. I feel like by opening Water & Light plant store, we have become a little part of that change.”
