We sat down and spoke to plant lovers from the global PLANT TRIBE about how plants add happiness and good vibes to their homes, or even changed their lives. Moreover, this book reveals secrets about how plants boost well-being and creativity by delving into topics such as horticultural therapy, slow living with plants and how plants drive businesses.

How to live successfully with pets and plants, with tips from fellow pet parents, plant care for the different stages of a houseplant’s life or how to help your plants survive your vacation.

Sneak preview

A video preview of our new book “Plant Tribe, living happily ever after with plants”, with behind-the-scenes footage from Igor Josifovic and Judith de Graaff, and photography by Jules Villbrandt.

For the photography of Plant Tribe, we worked with photographer Jules Villbrandt, from award-winning blog Herz und Blut. We love how she captured the homes that we visited, and how her photography makes all people and plants shine throughout the book. Besides that it was a joy to work with Jules, her warm and honest style give Plant Tribe the exact look and feel that we were looking for.

Early praise

“Judith and Igor take urban horticulture to another level with a profound understanding of how to integrate plants into our personal spaces, and to cultivate love and spread happiness.”
Executive director, FlowerSchool New York and FlowerSchool Los Angeles

“Plant Tribe is the definitive compendium of the thriving world of houseplants. What makes this book stand out for me isn’t the advice about watering and pruning or the (admittedly quite handy) room-by-room guide, but rather the encapsulation in a single volume of the creative potential, improved well-being, and sheer pleasure of living with houseplants.”
Founder/creative director of

“Living with plants has changed my life: Taking care of my green friends helps me feel present in the moment and inspired to more observant and inspires me to be more observant and patient. PLANT TRIBE is full of fresh ideas on how to take plant love to the next level. I’m so glad this book exists!”
Designer, founder of Tattly, CreativeMornings, Friends Work Here, and TeuxDeux

“Igor and Judith’s first book, Urban Jungle, is one of my favorite books about decorating with plants, so I couldn’t be more thrilled that they’re following up with Plant Tribe. As an ardent lover of all things green, I found (in the pages of Plant Tribe) inspiration and insight into caring for and designing with plants, and for living better through the healthy benefits of having plants in your home.”
