In this edition of Plantfluencer Stories – we hear from Norway based psychotherapist, agriculturalist, author and plant dad Anders Røyneberg.
Anders, how did you get into plants?

Growing up in the lush farmlands of Norway I was surrounded by fiords, fields and forests. I moved to Oslo, the capital, and soon discovered that I had filled my apartment with plants. So instead of moving back to the countryside, I brought nature into my urban dwelling to cure my "nature deficit disorder." Now I live surrounded by 150 plants, and I enjoy every one of them.

Tell us about your Instagram feed:

Two years ago, I started posting pictures of my plants on Instagram. The feedback was overwhelming. I soon discovered that there is a big community on Instagram filled with plant-loving people. I hope that me and my 100 houseplants inspire people to live a greener daily life, even though they live in cold places, such as Norway. Plants are a mean of becoming more aware of taking good care of nature; a positive and enjoyable climate activism.

What's your favorite plant?

Calathea Orbifolia. I love this tropical plant and call my calathea Miss Colombia. It looks so green and lush. I also love my orange tree. It's about 10 years old and has overgrown me, and I am 190 cm tall. I also use the mini oranges from this tree in my favourite drink, gin and tonic.

Do you have a "green thumb"?

I have also killed my fair share of plants, but from mistakes we learn. Most plants that die do so due to overwatering. My secret tip is to use the thumb to check if your plant needs watering. Stick it an inch or so into the soil. If moist, wait - if dry, water now.

What's the best present you've given or received?

Giving homemade plants from cuttings is the best present ever. My friends love getting plants that I have put effort, care and love into. Want to make stronger bonds with your friends? Wrap up a plant and go visit!
