Entertainment news anchor and certified plantita Gretchen Fullido feels that planting has made her more sane and has given her “peace and tranquility” inside her home.
Fullido enumerated the benefits of planting in her Instagram post today, Dec. 29, where she shared a photo of herself with her pet dogs amid various plants in the background.
“With all the uncertainties and things happening around the world, it’s important to make your living space a safe haven for you and for your mental health,” she noted.
Fullido said plants have given her nothing but positive vibes in her life. She said, “When I decided a few years back to make my home an indoor jungle, it really was the best solution and decision for me.”

“Having so many plants inside my home really helped with my overall mood and disposition. Indoor gardening became my passion,” she added.
Being a plantita is a rewarding experience for her becuase she finds joy in seeing “a little bud or signs of a new leaf.”
Fullido also believes that there are “strategic spots” for putting plants around the house.
“Yes! Remember… Lighting, lighting, lighting. That’s really the determining factor when you talk about placement. If you don’t have ample natural light — put them nearest your windows or invest in grow lights to help aid their growth,” she said.
Aside from being a plantita and pet lover, Fullido is also an environmental advocate. JB
