Tend Planter Co. is a concept for a planter subscription service for those who are starting fresh in a new space. Inspired by the idea of nesting, and made for those with an interest in cultivating a collection of plants, Tend embraces the process of re-potting root-bound plants, and translates it into a subscription service. Intended as a gift, the plants and planters grow with the customer as they become more comfortable and settled in their home.

There are three sets of planters a customer may choose from: The Tradescantia collection, the Crassasula Collection, and the Sempervivum Collection. Each set is named after the scientific genus of the dominant succulent grouping which mimics the specific pattern.
