How to hire a plant sitter!

Plant Goals is now offering Vacation Plant Care services! Click here to book your dates today.

You've grown your houseplant collection -- it's gorgeous, lush, and makes you happy every single day. But the time has come to finally enjoy that vacation you've been dreaming of -- who will take care of your plants when you are gone?

For a handful of houseplants you might ask a friend to pop by, but your collection isn't just a handful now -- it's much more than that and you want to be sure it'll still be thriving when you get home from your adventures.

Now is the time to hire a plant sitter!

You wouldn't leave your pets with someone who wasn't knowledgeable about the care they need and you don't need to resort to leaving your plants on a whim either.

Bringing on a professional plant sitting service will give you peace of mind to know that someone is caring for your collection just like you would -- someone who is able to tell exactly what your plants need and spot any issues that might crop up while you're away.

When is the best time to hire a plant sitter?

As soon as you know when you'll be away, you can book your dates for our Vacation Plant Care services. Booking ahead will save your spot in our calendar and will give us time to go over any other details you may want to share regarding the care of your houseplants.

We are also able to accommodate last-minute requests. Sometimes business trips or health related reasons may take you away from your home. Our team will help to keep your plants happy and healthy for when you get back.

How often should a plant sitter visit?

Depending on the plants in your collection, you will likely need someone to visit at least once per week. If you are going to be gone for several weeks, you may want to have someone come in 1-2 times a week, especially if you have plants in collection that need to remain moist. If you're not sure how many visits to book, get in touch via and we can help you decide what's best.

What does a plant sitter do during a visit?

  • Our plant sitters (aka Goal Tenders!) will do the following:
  • Check soil moisture of all plants and do any required watering
  • Fill any humidifiers that you have in your home
  • Check for any pests or other plant issues
  • Send you a quick update with photos via email

Goal Tenders will also bring in any mail or newspapers if desired.

How much does it cost to hire a plant sitter?

Our services start at $40/visit, depending on the size of your collection and how often our Goal Tenders will be visiting. When you book 3 or more visits at once, you can save 10% on your total package. Click here for more pricing information and to book your dates today.

Our team is dedicated to making sure your plants thrive while you are away, no matter how long that may be. You've worked hard to cultivate your collection and you deserve to come home to a beautiful jungle!
