About Us

Hi. I am Juliette, the co-founder of My City Plants.

about My City PlantsWe founded this company in  spring of 2013. In that time we’ve quietly grown to become the top online plant shop in New York City, helping over 1000 apartments, homes, and businesses to look and feel more peaceful, stylish, and comfortable.

Plant Light Chart
Light Intensity Description
High Light South or southwest-facing windows. Direct sunlight.
Medium Light East or West facing windows. Partial, filtered or indirect sunlight.
Low Light North-facing windows. No more then 20 feet from the window. Bright fluorescent light at least 8-10 hours a day.

Note: if you can’t read a book as it is too dark in a certain areas than it is too dark for any plant as well.

Window direction is not the only factor to understand your light situation. What is outside the window makes a big difference. Another building, large tree, etc. will block direct light and will effect lighting environment.
