Juanita’s Plants is a black woman-owned NYC-based online plant shop and plant delivery service that delivers plants to Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and The Bronx.
Juanita’s Plants was founded by Kat Hernandez, a native New Yorker and avid lover of plants. Kat started Juanita’s Plants in order to build a legacy for her family. In 2020, Kat launched her online store and named her business, Juanita’s Plants, after her grandmother Juanita Campusano, who was the foundation of her family and was truly cherished by all.
Over the past few years, Kat has done extensive research on indoor plants in order to be able to educate her customers on houseplants. She has also cared for plants for over 10 years and continues to do so in order to be as knowledgeable as possible about plants and the care they need.
Kat, has always been drawn to nature to balance out her surroundings of tall buildings, new condominiums, and the fast pace life of cars honking and people rushing to the subway in NYC.
Creating an indoor jungle in her home, allowed her home to become her safe haven and sanctuary. She knew indoor plants had this impact on so many other people, who lived in NYC which is why she founded Juanita’s Plants. She is on a mission to create better-living spaces/working spaces for all New Yorkers.
