Growing A Jungle In My New York Apartment

Growing A Jungle In My New York Apartment

SUBSCRIBE to Barcroft TV: http://bit.ly/Oc61Hj

A model has created an oasis in the middle of New York City by cramming 500 plants into her apartment. Self confessed “crazy plant lady” Summer Rayne Oakes decided to turn her Brooklyn apartment into a forest after her roommate moved out six years ago. Since then she has expanded the collection in her 1,200 square foot apartment and now has more than 150 plant species including a full forest wall, pineapple plants and even a banana tree.

    Your obsession is not borderline, its beautiful!

  36. Bluemoon on October 18, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    In the 70’s Jerry Baker wrote a book called "Talk to Your Plants". I believe the point is, if you talk to them, they become like your pets, and you will love them and take better care of them. I always ask my plants if they are cold or if they want water.

  37. Soldiers Voice4Lyf on October 18, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I love it

  38. Nelly Rivera on October 18, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    How about the co2 produced by plants at night ?

  40. Елена Комар on October 18, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Сама люблю цветы ,но это явный перебор ,квартира выглядит как магазин цветочный ,где для человека явно нет места.Кругом горшки ,нет изюминки ,видно что хозяйка любит цветы и все.

  41. Jennifer W on October 18, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    If I lived alone this is how my house would look for sure .

  42. Yassir Chediak ∴ on October 18, 2022 at 8:34 pm

  43. water boi on October 18, 2022 at 8:39 pm

  46. Lynne Paulocsak on October 18, 2022 at 8:41 pm

    Fun fact: plant sales went up 300 percent since the Covid virus started in 2020.

  47. Xiaole on October 18, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Monthly water bill ?

  48. Suzette Miller on October 18, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    Regarding the plants and music – people a long time ago used pipe organs to infuse music into water to be fed to plants and people, and it does somehow change the water for the better and makes it more healthy.

  49. Anh-Tu Phuc-Hoang on October 18, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    i had to move my plants away from the windows they would be getting skin cancer and i can feel it

  50. Chaima Mejri on October 18, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    We share the same passion. She is lucky to have her own apartment where she can grow whatever she wants
