About Rachelle Ford

The Woman of Wild Alocasia

I am a West Michigan based Indoor Plant Consultant and Stylist. I've spent my last 12 years working as a Surgical Technologist specializing in Cardiac Surgery and Total Joints. While seemingly unrelated, my career in surgery has given me a set of skills that bleed over into my love of plants and their care. My attention to details, memorization of information, and passion for perfectionism have been invaluable in my pursuit of plant knowledge and expert care of all types of indoor plants. Many would call this a Green Thumb, which I have both expertly curated and been blessed with. 

What started as an Instagram account full of plant tips and beautiful pictures has now grown into a business for me. I have established myself as a local consultant and plant stylist to friends and family, along with long distance virtual consultant, and my business is thriving through word of mouth and social media. After all, who doesn't know someone who says, "I love plants, but I kill everything?" I would encourage that a plant-parent is inside everyone, and that proper conditions (light, soil, watering) are the likely culprit to any plant struggles. With my expert eye and extensive indoor plant knowledge, I can create a look for any space, suggesting proper plants and placement, and can equip clients with the proper plant care for a thriving, living utopia.
