    OUR STORIES

    Eddie C, Owner

    I'm a dedicated plant dad, self-taught enthusiast, and a born and raised Brooklynite. I grew up in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn and spent much of my time hanging out on the stoop of my house there. The stoop had my grandmother's Tradescantia that I vividly remember her taking great care of. Aside from that, we did not have many plants in my apartment growing up and it was not until I got older that my passion for plants was inspired.

    One of my first jobs was off Craigslist performing data entry for a local retailer turned ecommerce store. It was there I developed a passion for retail and the desire to open my own store one day. After years of hard work, I became a retail buyer and moved into my first apartment in Borough Park. I used what little money I had left at the end of each month to furnish it with plants, buying them at local delis and hardware stores. Unfortunately, most would die within a few weeks or never looked as good as the day I took them home. And, as with everything I'm passionate about or want to save money on, I began learning everything I could about plants and how to keep them happy in a NYC apartment. After a decade of collecting plants, I developed a large collection and caring for them became my favorite hobby. I found myself offering advice on plant care to friends, local businesses and fellow enthusiasts I met online. In 2020, I decided to open my own shop to curate a selection of healthy and high quality plants and make them accessible to everyone, from my friends, family, and neighbors in NYC to my fellow enthusiasts throughout the country. I look forward to sharing my passion of horticulture with all of you.

    Jack Dahlia, Photography & Social

    While I may be the only member of the team that doesn't hail from Brooklyn, I spent my childhood running around the forests near Lake Ontario so I’m still a New Yorker to some extent! My family later moved to North Carolina where I completed school and spent several years performing as a drag queen before coming to Brooklyn in May of 2019.  I’m much newer to the plant world than the Eddie’s, starting my plant dad journey closer to the beginning of 2020. Now my apartment is filled with them and I actually met Eddie C. in my search for a Monstera Adansonii. After messaging him on Craigslist and picking one up, I mentioned that I was a content creator and that I would love the chance to photograph his products. I’m now fortunate enough to to be able to see all of their beautiful plants up close and personal as the product photographer here, as well as assisting with social media.  When I’m not working with Ed I keep myself busy with my business DAHLHAUS Enterprises, specializing in content creation and social media management. I have a passion for working with small businesses with interesting stories, and I look forward to engaging with you through social media! 

    Nikki - Ed's Plant Shop

    Nikki Weed, Customer Support & Plant Expert

    Nikki has been playing in the dirt since she was old enough to crawl. Her first horticulture endeavor was when she was 6 and decided she wanted to run away from home because her mom didn't want her to plant corn in the front yard. From there, she was bitten by the plant bug. She has managed independent garden centers in both South Carolina and Illinois and currently resides in Arizona on her tiny little homestead. When she's not watering her plant babies and answering questions about plants, she enjoys road trips, travel, and anything that has cheese on it. Her favorite plant - pothos!
