This is what I do babies in (zero maintenance):

Ha, I remember them from like twenty years ago. They were very en vogue back then Now I know why. Also had some that you just put into a vase with water. Never died

What also works with me are orchids. I know they can seem fickle but I just put them on a windowstand in the living room and sometimes water them if I remember. Since that is not often, they are doing ok. They get sunlight but not too much and not much draught so they seem to like where they are put. But it was pure luck.

Re: Is there such a thing as an apartment and balcony gardener? (ZH Area)

Today we are getting a new baby, the little version:



This little monstera (Monstera Monkey Leaf) is a vine, extremely low maintenance, less fussy than regular big monsteras and grows super fast. Needs light and more water than her big relative.

Plants have improved our lockdown when we were in one. Better mood, more energy, more humid rooms, fun esthetics and distraction, they are like pets. They are great to draw, too. Prune them, reproduce them, collect them, talk to them..Today is a good day to get a new plant. It's manky outside.

Hi Kittster


Your request is no more unusual that someone looking for a cleaner.


I had a friend decades ago in LA, USA, who used to take care of plants in homes and restaurants. The amount of care, planning, buying was agreed with each client. Her clients came by word of mouth, as often she would go into properties unoccupied

Many offices use the similar service with security staff around.



Happy you seem to have found by thread what you are looking for.
moggy you nailed it. Well you nailed what to search for

The offer exists:
https://ms-pflanzenservice.ch/
https://www.gruenraum.ch/pflanzenservice

These are only two randomly picked links after searching for "Pflanzenservice in Restaurants und Büros Schweiz" (in DuckDuckgo but I'm sure it works in any, LOL).

Hi there,

I have been too busy to look into this further, but it sounds like Veg and the City are closest to what I am looking for.
