Your Canadian, one-stop shop for exotic house plants!
After serving 22 years in the Canadian Armed Forces, it was time for a change. A complete 180 actually! Sweetlife Flora is transforming my passion for exotic and rare house plants, as well as indoor plant care, into a full-fledged business. I want to share what I have learned over the years, so you can curate your very own urban jungle. My adventure off the beaten path will be a journey with you, the customers, to ensure that Sweetlife Flora meets and exceeds your expectations with respect to stock variety, quantity and the follow-up plant care advice that will be provided.
My passion for plants developed out of necessity. I moved a lot over my career; my plant collection was always a stabilizing factor in each new domicile. My urban jungle grounded me and made each new place feel like home, no matter how far I had moved. In 2016, I was in an accident and sustained a severe concussion that changed the course of my life. I am still in the thick of the rehabilitation process. During the worst times, I was virtually incapable of taking care of myself. It was devastating, but the silver lining was that I could still take care of my plants and practice 'mindful horticulture'. I am eternally grateful for my indoor jungle's contribution to my recovery.
We want Sweetlife Flora to be your go-to store for exceptional exotic, hard-to-find, indoor botanical products, services and advice. Your feedback will be crucial in order for us to meet this goal.
