Loved “Living with a ‘Crazy Plant Person’” episode. They have a great relationship and that is why their home thrives.

It’s hard to find people who love plants as much as I do!! I have learned so much from your special guests and I loved the latest episode with your partner! I have gotten my partner to be just as obsessed. We don’t live together yet, but I’m so excited to merge our plant collections when we move in together in September! Thanks for putting so much hard work into this program, I’m super grateful as I’m sure many others are as well!!!!

Amazing podcast!

Tips and Info for all levels of plant people

I love that as I’ve grown as a plant parent my understanding and interest in more and more of these episodes is just growing! A real beginner can start out with the 101 episodes and plant side chats and then as you get more into (addicted) to plants you can really drill down and get some more technical and detailed information not just about how to care for but what plants do for people and how plants work etc. Great show, it may even kick start a new hobby for you!

Love this fun and informative Podcast!

Plant people! Experienced or non, I found this gem of a station simply by searching plants on my podcast channel because I wanted to have more of an understanding behind plant care, and basically everything in the home-growing plant world! It’s so fun, easy to listen to, useful and informative !

Incredibly educational and fun

Crazy Plant Lady

Rating: ★★★★★

I love listening to all of her wonderful guests & often wonder how did she compiled this list of who’s who in the online community plant world. Everyone from Summer Rayne Oakes to MIGardener is on her podcast. She is not afraid to sound inexperienced, asking what could be viewed as silly questions. & although I’m very sarcastic by nature, I honestly enjoy her ultra bubbly personality & eagerness to learn. If I could make one request: please have Doug Chamberlain from Vermont Hoyas! Because of him, I’m 25 deep in hoyas!

Best Plant Podcast - No Contest!

by Chris - Phoenix on Dec 20, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

There are several plant podcasts in Apple Podcasts, but most of them are dry and not very engaging. Bloom and Grow is the best of the best of the best! Always entertaining with the perfect mix of education and lighthearted conversation. It never gets so heavy that I feel like the info is going over my head, but I leave each episode knowing so much more about my plants! The guests are top-notch too. If you like houseplants even a little bit, do your ears (and your plants) a favor and subscribe to this binge-worthy podcast for plant parents!

I jumped on board listening to this podcast because of the guests. I’m aware that the host is new to houseplants in general, but I do feel ridiculous when I listen to someone as knowledgeable as Enid come on and have to explain what the veins of the leaves are. This is basic physiology of a plant...Before bringing a guest on I think some homework and background research is in order to avoid instances like that in the podcast. Also, referring to tomato seed sowing in lieu of aroid seed sowing was also a tad ridiculous. As mentioned in the 2 part episodes, you must sow the seeds once they’re ready because they must be FRESH in order for the seeds to germinate. I loved hearing from the guests that were invited to speak in this podcast and I’m sure that not everyone who listens are on the same knowledgeable level as the guests who are invited. That is what makes the podcast interesting, so please continue to bring more guests on!

I love planty talks, but...

by tahtanya on Dec 07, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

I enjoy everything house plants. I love learning more about house plants each day! So I wanted to like this podcast... but some things aren’t right. I get it that the host loves plants, started about a year ago, and went on this planty adventure of starting a podcast. I’m not trying to be negative but you can take this with a grain of salt and take it as constructive criticism if you’d like. First, I wish the host would do more research on plants. I understand that you can’t know everything of every topic, but understand the basic things to deepen topics with experts to get more out of the episode. For example, veins of the leaves... If a person truly loved a hobby, they’d do basic research on the topic. Second, I wish the host wouldn’t interrupt as much. There are some great guests on the show that could bring in a lot of knowledge, but often get interrupted to summarize and dumb down what they had previously talked about for the listeners to understand better. I don’t think it’s necessary. What I do enjoy about the show: she’s consistent! I applaud to that. She gets fantastic guests, including Summer and Enid. Continue to learn and grow!

This is my favorite podcast!

Hi! I consider my self a plant lady/serial killer 😅 But this podcast is so full of valuable content, advice and information. With good tips to take better care of my plants and encourage me to try more varieties. It also help me with my English since I’m from Puerto Rico. On the side note could you do an episode of Poinsettias? Every Christmas I buy a few but just last a few weeks. Could you give me and all the people with the same struggle some care tips? Thanks and congrats on the show.!

I just *finally* started listening to podcasts last week, and was inspired to start with this one after watching a #trylivingwithlucie episode where Maria helps her get started on apartment plants! I have been a notorious orchid killer, but saw she had an Orchid 101 episode, and I’ve been hooked from there! Hopefully the tips I picked up help revive my one sad orchid I got last year, and help me prevent my new one from suffering! I love hearing such a friendly, enthusiastic voice keeping me company during my commutes or doing things around the apartment. So inspiring and such great energy to hear people geek out over their passion for plants and love of helping others to “bloom and grow”.

I’ve just started listening to Bloom and Grow Radio, and I can happily say it’s one of my favorite pastimes now. Maria is knowledgeable, yet she is open about what she doesn’t know and the horticultural mistakes she has made. I’m so glad that I found her in Instagram and decided to take a listen. I’m very excited for future episodes. Thanks for creating such a friendly and interactive environment, Maria! 🌿

Basic Information

by Levidavisohioaa on Oct 09, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

This podcast is great for a beginner plant enthusiast, or someone who just plans on buying a few plants for their social media feed. However, it’s hard to find a decent amount of viable and informative advice here. Maria the host is a gem, and keeps it light, but I’m really not interested to listen to someone talk about plants for ~50 minutes who has no legitimate background in the hobby. I can think of a handful of full episodes where the host just interviews someone essentially because they have a lot of Instagram followers.

I am a temp at a company where my job is to stare at a computer all day and mindlessly type numbers. Just listening to this podcast while at work helps me feel unplugged and inspired. I bought a spider plant for my desk (so I can see more than fluorescent lights and a computer screen all day), and I listen to this podcast, eager to go home to my tiny collection of two succulents and a cactus and try out some of the amazing tips Maria provides in this podcast!

this podcast is the most uplifting, & inspiring podcast. I relate so much to the host with all of her plant experiences, yet learn so much from her & her guests. Maria’s voice makes me smile & her candid, honest approach is so comforting. You hear the good, the bad, the struggles & the wins.... she is so real that it feels like a friend is leaving you a voicemail about plants. I know very little about certain plants, & it’s so fun to hear how to expand my planty horizons (even considering changing career paths!). I am so thankful for this podcast!

Yeah I love it.

I was looking for a “plant-person” podcast for a while. I subscribed to several and listened to some episodes and then unsubscribed. I virtually met Maria (the host of this podcast) through a plant lady community out of NYC/Brooklyn and i will be forever grateful. She has tapped into a market of unfulfilled inquirers!! I enjoy the variety of guests she hosts as well as the content offered. I always learn something, but sometimes i giggle, sometimes i get emotional, and i always tune out happy i tuned in. I work around 10 hours a day on average and open up my podcast app during my commute (MTA). Thank you Maria for helping my days be a little bit better, a lot plantier, and significantly more informed with regard to my plant life :)

I’ve really enjoyed this podcast. I love the interviews because Maria picks super knowledgeable people that have easily digestible and practical advice about how to grow plants and keep them alive. She keeps great show notes and limits the personal banter (something I dislike with other podcasts). She also does great recaps of the advice her guests give throughout an episode. Keep it up, Maria. Would also love a discount code for companies who sell seeds if you can swing it ;)

Maria is the best friend everyone needs! She is confident in her questions and tackles each episode and topic with a yearning for knowledge. She asks the questions we might be afraid to ask and discusses topics that we all wonder about. She has a beautiful and soothing voice that is like talking with an old friend. She isn’t afraid to say she doesn’t have experience with a subject and keeps the chat very real! The podcast that got me into podcasts!!!!
