Johanna C. Dominguez is owner and head plant queen at Put a Plant On It. Her enthusiasm for plants grew from coming a long line of farmers that have farmed everything from pineapple, rice, bananas, chocolate, and cows. With her mother she traveled the world, living abroad until coming to the United States at 15. Growing up in 6 different countries gave Johanna a deep love of ecology, having lived in a variety of different environments. That nomadic lifestyle didn't lend well to keeping plants, but as soon as Johanna became firmly rooted in her home here in Buffalo, she quickly started accumulating plants.
Johanna's favorite plants include rare aroids (alocasia, philodendron, anthurium) and she enjoys learning from their growth. She grows and propagates most of her own plants in several small greenhouses and hopes to bring some of these hard to find plants to the people of Buffalo. Her other favorite plants are hoya and her love of hoya runs deep. She has close to 100 different varieties of hoya which she also hopes to offer in the future. Johanna's knowledge runs as deep as a taproot and she thrives on sharing it with everyone who steps through the door with a smile and enthusiasm that can't be matched.
