Plant care and family go hand in hand for Jasmine Nicole Cisco, 31, co-founder of The Nice Plant. "I used to garden with my [maternal] grandmother. Her garden was her joy," remembers Jasmine Nicole. "That's just the thing I remember vividly, being in her garden, and she's growing tomatoes, sunflowers, and all types of vegetables." But it took a while for the green thumb to pass down the generations to her. "College days, I could not keep a plant alive," says Jasmine Nicole. "It was really weird because my dad is also literally in plants for a living." (Her dad is a horticulturist who manages the grounds for Progressive insurance campuses across the country.) "So it was kind of embarrassing that I have…this background with my family really being immersed in plants, and I was killing plants. I guess, I thought it would come naturally."
