" ‘I made a really cool living room, and I said, ‘Come in,’ ’ says Louise Rosenberg of Cultivate Urban Rainforest and Gallery. She personally curates the exotic house plants — look for beautiful ferns and terrariums — and nature-showcasing home decor and furnishings and regularly hosts artists’ talks and community benefits."
"Reflecting my predilections, the place shows off carnivorous plants, ferns and succulents to their advantages (light conditions mid-day made photographing "interesting"). The owner, Louise Rosenberg, ‘founded Cultivate on the belief that plants, art and community create a wonderful synergy that is self-sustaining.’ "
"Each week, CGN interviews a local art dealer to discuss the ins and outs of running a gallery in the city of Chicago. This week we caught up with Louise Rosenberg of Cultivate Urban Rainforest & Gallery."
"In the modern world it is becoming harder and harder to find a piece of natural beauty when one lives in a city. This is why Louise Rosenberg’s Cultivate is a real treasure and a must for all the nature-lovers. Whether you are looking for houseplants or pots and terrariums, garden accessories or books on plants and nature, this is definitely the place to be."
"Twice each month, a side room at Fox & Hound in Arlington Heights gets decked out with bright green tablecloths covered with troughs of dirt, buckets of rocks and water spritzers. The roughly 40 seats sell out more than a month in advance as friends and family come together to share some cocktails, beer and snacks and build their own terrariums."
"Let’s face it: it’s hard to resist a tiny, adorable succulent plant. What’s harder is caring for one when you don’t know the difference between an air plant and a fern. That’s where Cultivate comes in! Cultivate Urban Rainforest & Gallery is all about making your foray into plant parenthood as easy, fun, and cheap as possible."
