One of my favorite things about Instagram is the way community can form there. I'm guessing most of us have people we've never met in real life, that we've still managed to form friendships with over Instagram, right? And although at first they annoyed me, once I realized the role hashtags could play in building that community, I began to embrace them.
I'd been scheming about a good community hashtag for Folia Collective for a few days when a friend texted me a photo of a plant she thought I'd like to see, and captioned it '#PlantScout'. I couldn't get it out of my head- it felt like the perfect fit. So, with the permission of my friend, today we're officially launching our first community hashtag: #PlantScout!
Share the plants you find- whether at a shop, in a friend's house, or out in the garden- by tagging them #PlantScout and we'll share our favorites from the feed on our Instagram. We can't wait to see what you're scouting!
