With Rhiannon Campbell's first plant-centric venture Botanic Box, she was sending monthly bundles of greenery to eager subscribers. With her second project, she's still keeping things green — but is now welcoming Brisbane plant aficionados into a bricks-and-mortar store.

Open on Station Street in Nundah, The Plant Lounge is all about indoor plants and accessories that have been sourced from local nurseries. They've been selected to showcase plenty of variety and chosen to suit Queensland's unique (read: usually warm and moist) climate.

Here, you'll find many a leafy gem to brighten up your home, plus a range of artisanal and designer pots to put them in. Giving up her full-time corporate job to embrace her green thumb, Campbell will help you pick the right plant for your space, too.

The Plant Lounge also hosts workshops, with its upcoming slate focusing on perennial greenery favourites such as kokedamas, terrariums, pottery and macrame plant hangers. Need some advice on tending to your green babies properly (and not killing them with kindness and enthusiasm)? Classes on that very topic are also on the agenda.

Find The Plant Lounge at Shop 1, 8 Station Street, Nundah. It's open from 9am–4pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 11am–7pm on Thursdays and Fridays, 9am–4pm on Saturdays and 9am–1pm on Sundays.
