Nothing compares with the wonder of nature. Blaine Tiongson knows this on the deepest level. Blooming flowers, trees dancing in the wind, succulents growing babies—the beauty is endless. It’s this sense of awe that she wants to share, and the reason she’s poured her passion into inspiring others to slow down and appreciate their own natural surroundings.
Since Momma Pots’ humble beginnings in Blaine’s garage through today’s placement in 500-plus stores worldwide, more than one million of her modern designs, made to enhance the plant life they hold, have brought happiness to people’s homes. Top-notch quality, accessible pricing, unique designs, extraordinary colors, a focus on eco-friendly products and packaging, and a magical exclusive partnership with a family-owned, woman-led Chinese manufacturer have created a brand that is both beloved and inspired.
With help from her husband Joel, Momma Pots’ warehouse manager, and the encouragement of her two kids, Keegan and Grey, Blaine’s dreams-come-true are creating a community of like-minded plant lovers, nurturing a connection to beauty and nature.
