Julio César Román, Micro Plant Studio Founder & Owner

Our designs; pots, vases, propagation kits, and many other innovative items are functional and edgy.

Our company name have personal significance for our founder and owner, Julio Cesar Roman.

In 2017 Julio had an unexpected surgery. As part of his recovery process, from his small art studio apartment, he cared for his growing collection of succulent plants. Julio found caring for the plants soothed him and made him feel happier. As an artist, he was inspired to learn more about the biology of succulents and other plants. Julio explored the propagation process and experimented with planting in cool glass tubes and other containers. Within a short period of time he had too many plants to care for. He started to photograph the propagation process and the plants interacting with his collectable tiny toys by creating dramatic environments. Now, his plant collection and toy collection are online. Purchase one of his plants a larger plant to add to your collection. These plants are great for your home or office and can easily make a great gift/present to family and friends. Some of our plants are pet, kid, and adult friendly and are great for the home and office spaces.

Help us soothe and bring a BIG smile to the world, one plant at a time!

A Natural Inspiration

The overall design of the showroom was inspired by the aesthetics of our website and gallery/museum space. The showroom was carefully designed to embrace the beautiful elements of nature, green and brown colors, textures, lightings, and at the same time reinforcing the company’s brand and celebrating the uniqueness of each plant, flower, and other products. Nature becomes the art and our guests become admirers of nature.

A Multi-Purpose Layout – Rethinking the Traditional Flower, Plant & Gift Shop

Micro Plant Studio’s South Boston location is comprised of a showroom and a creative arts studio. The space challenges what one traditionally would consider a florist, plant or gift shop. The showroom combines these three concepts and pushes them to a new level. Showroom guests will find a unique sample of items from Micro Plant Studio’s full online website collection. Behind the showroom guests will find an intimate studio space for creating terrariums, painting and participating in other creative projects/workshops. The studio is a space where people are encouraged to create art, be inspired by art and nature, learn from each other, be part of a shared community space, and increase their sense of community by networking with others. Guests of all skill levels are welcome in the studio.
