East Bay teenager turns pandemic hobby into flourishing business

“It helped me a lot because it was like a little escape,” said Hernandez. “I just wanted something to take care of and watch grow. That’s what really helped me in the beginning and it turned into a hobby.” She quickly inherited her green thumb from her father and grandfather who also love to garden. Hernandez started planting cacti and succulents into ceramic pottery with inspiring quotes and sayings. Hernandez began positing her succulents to a local Facebook page for small businesses.

“The pandemic impacted my life because it was a lot of change coming my way, said Katelynn Hernandez. “The pandemic was mostly lonely, like a lot of change that I wasn’t use to. And coming up with a new routine helped me keep my mind off of what’s actually happening in the pandemic.” When Hernandez found herself feeling anxious, gardening provided an outlet to forget about the stress of living in a pandemic.

Hernandez’s passion quickly blossomed into a successful small business and she was surprised how her plants brought her customers so much happiness. “Once stuff started selling, I thought Wow. People actually like my stuff and I can actually do what I like to do,” said Hernandez. “This is like peaceful for me to do this, and that’s what really helped me in the beginning,” said Hernandez. “It’s kinda like plant therapy for me.”
