About the book

“Respectful, inclusive, and inspiring. This is an essential read for green witches looking to fine-tune their interactions with plants usually seen as indoor and ornamental.”
—Arin Murphy-Hiscock, author of The Green Witch

Infuse Magic into Every Act of Indoor Plant Care

No plant is ever just a houseplant. Whether you are a green witch or merely horti-curious, you can learn how to successfully grow potted plants, connect with their spiritual energies, and partner with them for magic.

Devin Hunter provides practical tips on substrates, pests, watering, and other elements of plant care. He also shares ideas for incorporating magic into every step, such as drawing sigils on your grow lights, pushing energy into the soil, and putting crystals in your watering can. All these suggestions and more will help your monstera, fern, orchid, and other indoor flora thrive.

From begonias to bromeliads, this book features easy-to-grow, easy-to-find plants and their occult correspondences. Improve astral travel with English ivy, cut through obstacles with mother-in-law’s tongue, and manifest dreams into reality with pothos. Packed with spiritual and botanical wisdom, Houseplant Hortocculture teaches you how to confidently raise and work with your own magical allies.
