Tia Planta Hiring as Business BlossomsAug 29, 2021 09:27AM ● By Claire Byers
The tiny greenhouse is thriving at Tia Planta, where owner Shayla Cabrera and her team offer plant consultations and troubleshooting and even act as a personal shoppers, buying plants for clients and delivering them to their home or office.
At the 150-square-foot kiosk in Jersey City, shoppers can get advice on caring for, rehabbing and styling everything that’s green and growing. Tia Planta has a plant-care video library, and it also hosts workshops in Plant Parenting 101—or, as Cabrera describes it, “small, hands-on, in-person Covid-safe workshops to empower you to be a poppin’ plant parent.”
Cabrera is growing her business too, with plans for an online shop. She’s actively seeking to hire a fifth team member.
“Our ideal candidate is someone who has extensive knowledge and love of houseplants, is high energy and has flexible availability,” she says. “They must be comfortable helping at workshops, with plant installs and holding down the kiosk. We will need someone with tight inventory-management skills as well. Side note: All employees get a sick discount on our inventory.”
Location: 722 Montgomery St., Jersey City, NJ. For more information, call 862-579-0649 or visit TiaPlanta.com.
