The hours when others are sipping bottomless mimosas, that’s when Carter, a 37-year-old artist, feeds and inspects and prunes and otherwise tends to the Great Dane of a fern cascading down above his bed. It’s when he “bathes” the tiny air plants perched like tropical bugs on his geometric mirror. This is when he can fuss over the verdant monster, trademark Swiss-cheese holes in its sprawling leaves, that sways gently in the breeze coming off the Jones Falls River just outside the window.
"Millennials Are Filling Their Homes — and the Void in Their Hearts — With Houseplants" is from the September 07, 2017 Style section of The Washington Post. It was written by Lavanya Ramanathan and narrated by Sam Scholl.
