About Figure It Sprout

Three colorful potted plants from Figure It Sprout.

Maggie has received a gift in the mail.

It is a treasured plant, sent by a treasured family member.

And as one plant - becomes two - then becomes three - Maggie must carefully consider how to manage an ever-growing garden.

Join Maggie on her journey as she explores her precious garden. Together, you will test new ways to optimize the limited space in her charming apartment. Drawing on encouraging notes, tips, and support, you will help Maggie to cultivate a seemingly ever-expanding collection of plants.

And as your mind wrestles with the increasingly difficult task, you might find - as does Maggie - that quiet, considered, time alone with your thoughts can help one appreciate what really, truly matters.
