About Us

The Flora Culture is a family run interior plant and design business in Houston, Texas. Our company was created out of a love for plants, and the desire to make them attainable for all people -- whether or not they were born with a green thumb.

Jemine Oakes


Co-Founder/Director of Operations

Jemine has always been passionate about floral design. Growing up in Nigeria, she was surrounded by tropical plants and loved using the vivid colors from her home-grown garden to create bouquets.

Matthew Oakes


Co-Founder/Design Director

Matthew grew up with an affinity for horticulture and began with a botanical garden on his parents’ property at age 12. He has since combined his professional background in design with his love for nature to create a place where both meet and thrive.

Anna Oakes


Director of Sales and Marketing

Anna is passionate about helping people find their perfect match when it comes to plants. She believes a room is incomplete until it is brimming with plants and fresh flowers to breathe life into the space. (No, really, the plants provide more oxygen!)

Kevin Lara


Store Associate

Kevin has been in the retail and hospitality industry for several years and is passionate about making connections. What started out as a hobby with plants has turned into an obsession that he’s been able to share with his family and friends.

Darby Gonzales


Store Associate

Darby is a people person who fell in love with the plant community two years ago and hasn’t looked back since. She has loved introducing her family and friends (and pretty much anyone else who will listen) to the beauty and diversity of the plant world.

Daniel Oakes


Greenhouse Manager

Having lived in East Asia for 9 years, Daniel has a love of tropical plants that are native to Asia. Working in the greenhouse surrounded by hundreds of plants is his favorite place to be and is a little taste of heaven!

Oliver Oakes


Director of Play

Oliver is our resident lizard-wrangler and garden assistant.

Emory Oakes


Assistant Director of Play

Emory is a soil connoisseur (but we are trying our best to keep him from eating it).

Talia Oakes


Director of The Directors of Play

Talia's job is to keep her big brother's in line and to bring a smile to everyone's face.

Yay plants!
