In Amsterdam-West Rachelle Klaassen has started a houseplant asylum. An animal shelter for plants so to say. She started rescuing dumped plants from garbage piles, but after some postering and thanks to her facebook page people now bring her the plants they want to get rid of. She patches them up and then offers them to the public for adoption for free.

Rachelle Klaassen: "Why trash a plant when it has a shared a room with you for many years?". Two weeks ago a couple living in Zwolle have also started an asylum, and also in Rotterdam a houseplant asylum will open soon.
