Tiny roots. Big smiles. ™Our slogan and our company name have personal significance for our founder, Julio Cesar Roman.
In 2017 Julio had an unexpected surgery. As part of his recovery process, from his 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 tiny (Micro) plants or a larger plant along with a (or several) toy(s) 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. All of our collections are kid and adult friendly.
Help us soothe and bring a BIG smile to the world, one plant at a time!
