Hi, I’m Caitlin Hastings! I started Botanica in 2018 as a full-time physician assistant who had a passion for houseplants. At that time, Botanica exclusively functioned out of my home as a plant consulting and pop up business. After 9 months, I saw a need to open a brick and mortar plant shop in downtown Birmingham. My goal was to create a space where folks could find the perfect plant, a pot that would match their modern décor, and most importantly, leave knowing how to keep the plant alive. As of 2021, we have now expanded into 3 cities (Birmingham, Huntsville, and Chattanooga) and have amazing teams at each shop to help with all your plant needs!

We offer a variety of houseplants for all levels of plant parenthood, from the novice needing easy start plants to the pros wanting rare collectible aroids. We also offer virtual plant consultations for your home, installation/maintenance services for commercial spaces, and plant rentals for events. Check out our Services tab for more information!
We are always on the hunt for beautiful, harder to find plants so be sure to follow us on social media or visit one of our 3 shop locations!
