If you are stuck working from home but the outdoors are your happy place, here's something to cheer you up. A Seattle conservatory just started live streams from their gorgeous greenhouse to bring healing vibes to your living room! Anyone else for a dose of plant therapy? 

Nestled in the north end of Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill, the Volunteer Park Conservatory is temporarily closed until at least April 13, 2020, while they take precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

But that's still not stopping the century-old greenhouse from being a place of healing, calm, community, and literal warmth. 

The conservatory announced on their Instagram that they'll be doing "plant therapy live streams." 

A spokesperson for the glasshouse told Narcity that they expect to be doing them on most days in the afternoons. There's also no set time or how long they will be, and it depends on the gardener's maintenance schedule. 

"We're just hoping to supply people with a way to visit virtually," they said. 

So far, we've spotted these sessions approximately at noon.

It's placed at a different angle every day — so you'll be able to see everything from a pathway of ferns and ficus therapeutically moving to a gentle breeze to a whole room of cacti or spring orchids! 

Even if you miss the live stream, Instagram retains them for 24 hours, meaning, you can hop on whenever you want and tune into their stories for a quick, green break. 

When you're able to go outside again, we recommend that you check this Victorian-style greenhouse out if you haven't already.

Not only will you feel like you're in a tropical rainforest amidst the palm plants or bromeliads, but you can also bring a plant baby home.

If you need any more convincing, if there's one place where you'll find warmth in Seattle on a cold, rainy day, it's got to be at this urban jungle (it's always a balmy 72 degrees).

Until then, we're "rooting" for those Insta stories.
