About Welltended

What makes your home uniquely your own?

We spend 85-90% of our time indoors. Given how many hours we're in our homes and office spaces, combined with the hectic pace of city life, it's important now more than ever to cultivate an indoor setting that is uniquely yours. Plant life is therapeutic, transforming your space and making you proud to call your city apartment 'home.' 

Welltended is your partner this transformation, turning your space into a lush retreat, removed from the buzz of city-life. We guide you to select the perfect plant in a gorgeous container, and then deliver it right to you. From there, we'll give you all the support that you need to help keep your plant thriving. Your urban jungle will create a sense of pride and happiness only possible through the power and health benefits that plant life offers. 


HOW IT WORKS

Our process at Welltended is simple. We provide a start-to-finish service for our customers who wish to cultivate their own personal haven within an otherwise hectic world. We've created a houseplant selection quiz to help you find the plant that's perfect for your indoor conditions and lifestyle. Or, you can browse our plant selection directly. 

Once your order is placed, we'll send you an email with estimated delivery timeline (usually within one week!), and once delivered, you'll be provided simple, thoughtful care instructions and can sign up for watering reminders. It's that easy -- we're taking the hassle and stress out of creating your own indoor jungle. 

Our plants come with a 30-day guarantee. If you're not happy with your purchase within 30 days, we'll provide a full refund. We want you to have the best possible experience and to beam with pride for your Welltended plant.

 

MEET THE FOUNDER

I moved to Chicago in the summer of 2015 for business school, after spending my entire life prior to that in sunny California. As summer turned to fall, and the air became crisp, I started spending more and more time indoors. This quickly led to a strong desire to create an indoor space that I could truly enjoy, and that was totally my own. 

Nothing transformed my space more than a collection of houseplants that I scattered in my living room, bedroom, and even my bathroom. It was incredible how happy the plant life - complete with artistic, stylish containers that they resided in - made me, and how they felt like the final touch needed for my space. 

That said, I was also shocked along the way at how painful the process was to source my indoor jungle. I spent hours traveling from Home Depot, to local nurseries, to home decor stores, in order to source the needed supplies. From there, I had to lug everything (large bag of soil, included) on public transportation, and I made a total mess of my apartment once I actually did get everything home.

It was truly frustrating to source an ideal houseplant for my apartment, and it was further difficult to find a container that would actually match the design aesthetic of my home (read: something a little more exciting than your standard red terra cotta pot). Plus, at the end of it all — after all that — I soon realized how difficult it is to get accurate information about how to care for the plant, and ultimately to keep it alive.

I didn’t understand why on earth it should be so difficult to select and source a plant in a container that you’re proud to display in your space. This is how Welltended came to life. I've now become a true #plantlady, and I am on a mission to help others cultivate a comfortable, cozy space that they are truly proud to call their own.
