About the Author

Her plant styling clients include new home owners adopting their first plant; seasoned plant lovers looking for a fresh take; restaurants, offices, and other brands bringing life to their workspaces; and even celebrities seeking anything from a few pops of green in a minimal mid-century modern, to a full-on Spanish Colonial jungle.
Danae’s plant boutique, Folia Collective, grew from a traveling pop-up shop, to a bustling brick & mortar store filled with plants, stylish ‘plant stuff’, and other goods for plant lovers. Folia has been named one of the “30 Cutest Plant Shops Around the World” and the Folia Instagram feed was called a “Plant-Filled Instagram That Will Turn Your Black Thumb Green” by Domino Magazine. Whether in the verdant setting of her shop, or at events around LA, Danae teaches regular workshops on a range of topics like plant care for beginners, potting and repotting, propagation, plant problem-solving, styling with plants and even entrepreneurship.
