Life is a journey and finding our place in that life can feel overwhelming. Who am I? Where do I belong? How do I cultivate a life that makes my heart happy?

“He who knows others is wise; he who knows himself is enlightened.” ― Lao Tzu

While there are many books written on self-discovery, Everything I Need to Know About Life I Learned from My Houseplants is unique in its approach by using the growth cycle and care of houseplants to impart wisdom and essential life lessons for living an authentic life.

Throughout the book, the author’s own journey of personal growth unfolds alongside practical information and care tips for raising happy, healthy houseplants. While this little book tackles some tough topics, such as her struggle with depression and experience in an abusive relationship, it is done with a lightness and humour that makes you feel like you’ve known the author for years.

This book will leave you feeling inspired and ready to change and improve your own life, as well as those of your houseplants.


Becca Powell is a forty-something woman with enough lived experience to have a bit of hard-earned, practical wisdom to share.  As a self-professed pluviophile, she lives happily in Portland, Oregon where she works her small interior design business from home surrounded by her beloved (and numerous) houseplants and two even more beloved Vizslas.  She is passionate about reading, warm tea, and meaningful conversations.  Her favourite outside-the-house activity is hanging out with her grown kids-turned-friends and visiting a busy dog park on a warm day. Everything I Need to Know About Life I Learned from My Houseplants is her first written work.
