Melanin Planted is a new company, but during a short period of time Dee has inspired many to become plant parents. Knowing that customers are enjoying being plant moms and dads brings her joy. She also enjoys watching people nurse their plants back to health. Part of the process of taking care of a plant is to learn how to fix mistakes. Her motto is, “if there is green, the plant isn’t dead”. Plants are resilient and beautiful. Dee believes humans are just the same and are showing their resilience during the pandemic.
