500 Plants In One New York City Apartment

This New Yorker has 500 plants.

Summer Rayne Oaks lives in a 1,2000 sq ft apartment filled with  150 types of plants. An ex-model with masters in environmental studies, she embraces green living.

"Variegated monsteras, corn plants, golden pothos, and philodendrons. Some lemon verbena. We have peppercorn. This is also turmeric."

"The plants have really been fully integrated, so they very much like make my home, but they also make the home theirs as well."
