Top Plant Sitters related questions

Your Tasker can take care of many plants, from low-maintenance ones like succulents to those that require special treatment like orchids or venus flytraps. They can also take care of everlasting (plastic) plants by dusting and polishing them. To be sure, you can first let your Tasker know what kinds of plants you have that need care.

A plant sitter must have basic to expert knowledge on plants and how to take care of them. Each plant is unique, so they should know the differences in their requirements to survive. They should also have attention to detail to see what each plant needs. A plant sitter must also be patient, trustworthy, and nurturing.

Just like when hiring a house sitter, this is entirely up to you! Your plant sitting service can last from days to months, depending on your needs. One-off plant care can last for a day, while holiday plant care can last for as long as you’re away. Just be sure that regardless of how long you need the service, you instruct your Tasker properly and thoroughly.

You can pay via cash or, if you prefer cashless transactions, through Airtasker Pay. Discuss with your Tasker other details, like if they require a downpayment or if you can pay on the day of the plant sitting service itself. If you plan to get their services regularly, feel free to make the necessary arrangements with your Tasker!

What do plant sitters services include?

Hiring a plant sitter is a good idea when you need someone to look after your green companions while working or away for vacation! Like getting professional house sitting services, a plant sitter can develop a care plan that caters to your planting, watering, and repotting needs. Here are a few things you can expect from a plant sitting service near you:

Holiday plant care

Having plants at your place can prevent you from fully enjoying your time off or focusing on your business trip. You might be worried about whether or not they’re getting enough sunlight or if they already need watering, among other things. Hiring a plant sitter is pretty much the same as hiring a home sitter. They can take all those worries away and give you peace of mind! 

Booking a plant watering service means that your plants are well taken care of while you’re away. Just remember to walk your Tasker through each of your plants’ needs and conditions, and they will handle the rest. You can look forward to coming back home to healthy and nourished plants. If you also have dogs or cats at home, why not get someone to care for your pets as well? This can give you peace of mind knowing they’re well-fed while you’re away!

Office plant care

Plants are proven to not only liven up a space but help improve mood and productivity! That’s why they’re usually a top choice for office decorations. But since everyone’s busy doing their day-to-day tasks, office plants typically get neglected. Don’t let that happen to yours and hire an office plant sitter! This allows you to get on with more important tasks while you enjoy the benefits of a greener working environment. Your Tasker can assess your office space first, and then they can offer you a tailored care plan. 

Whether your office has a minimal number of plants or a small jungle, a Tasker can readily handle your plant sitting needs. And while you’re at it, why not get someone to cut your office lawn? Besides maintaining your office plants, you also need to ensure your property keeps its sleek, professional, and clean look!

One-off plant care

One-off maintenance like potting plants is for those who can’t find the time to spruce up their leafy friends when needed. Getting a plant sitter can give your plant a quick fix! Don’t forget to explain to your Tasker what exactly your plant requires, so they can come up with ways on how to restore them to their former glory! If you want to further elevate your space, feel free to hire someone to plant in your garden as well!
