How Plants Became a Source of Hope During the Pandemic for Peter Dario

When tough times hit during the pandemic, people everywhere turned to plants for comfort. Lockdowns and worries made people feel alone, but planting things brought them joy and hope. Terrace Plant Shop is an example of this.

The proud Filipino-American owner, Peter Dario, faced a big tragedy two years ago, when he lost his dad and grandpa to COVID-19. This was really tough for his family. To help heal, they started getting into plants, even though Peter wasn’t into them before.

Peter wasn’t sure if it would work at the beginning. But despite the uncertainty, he took the leap.

Terrace Plant Shop goes beyond being a store – it stands as a symbol of resilience. People who also navigated pandemic struggles found hope in its story. It proved that even when things are tough, positivity can grow.

Beyond plants, the shop offers an array of treasures like soil, pots, and even candles. Among the diverse plant offerings, the Monstera Adansonia, with its striking heart-shaped leaves, steals the spotlight. The “Friendship Plant,” or Pilea Peperomioides, is another crowd favorite. Its low-maintenance nature and cheerful appearance are a hit.

Terrace Plant Shop also offers workshops that teach people how to craft terrariums, miniature plant havens. These interactive sessions cater to groups and teams, fostering creativity and connection.
