About Us

Root Bridges began with the realization that our cities weren't giving us what they should - cleaner air and greener living spaces. As plant lovers, we found that most plant nurseries were selling the same old plants in plastic bags. Hobbyists and enthusiasts deserved a new experience - exotic plants, quality pots, and environmentally friendly growing media.

We at Root Bridges would like to give every urban individual a new experience with nature. We grow handpicked potted home plants and are proud of the plants we sell.

Our Dream

Every urban home feels closer to nature.
