Hey there. My name is Stan, and I’m here to share my journey from a novice plant owner to establishing BigTimeLiving.com.

Everything started with a friend’s simple yet meaningful gift: a beautiful Parlor palm with vibrant tropical fronds for my wife.

Despite the Parlor palm being one of the easiest houseplants for beginners, my wife and I were surprised to see the once-vibrant green palm leaves slowly turning yellow. We didn’t know what had gone wrong, and I felt lost because, let’s face it, I knew nothing about plants!

So, like any other beginner, I turned to the internet for answers. While the information I found was helpful, it was also very overwhelming. There were too many sources saying a bunch of different things, making it hard to digest certain aspects of plant care.

It was then that I had an idea. I thought, “How amazing would it be to have one source for all plant-related content?”

I’m sure millions of plant owners worldwide have faced—or are facing—similar challenges.

I’m sure there are people who, like me, are feeling lost when it comes to the challenges that come with plant parenthood.

I’m sure that you, too, don’t know where to start.

This is the big idea behind BigTimeLiving.com.

With my background in blogging, I saw an opportunity to create a space where I could freely share my ups and downs when it comes to plant care. Aside from this, I know a platform where we, as a community, can share valuable insights and tips on caring for plants is a necessity—especially because gardening can lead you to some inevitably murky waters!

So, let me introduce you to BigTimeLiving.com—a platform where passionate plant enthusiasts can come together, one leaf, one drop of water, and one ray of sunshine at a time!
