Are you a proud plant parent?

In this challenge, we want to see how you care for your leafy friends. Have you built custom plant shelves or stands?  Do you make macrame plant hangers? Perhaps you’ve got the perfect indoor grow light setup for cacti, herbs or greens? Are you a master of orchids, violets, ferns or other finicky houseplants?

Share the ways you pamper and care for your houseplants for your chance to win a $250 Amazon gift card.

Tinkercad fans: share your best planter designs for your chance at our Tinkercad Judges' Prize!

The Indoor Plants Challenge is closed.
