The TVC stars a hungry Monsteria and ‘Crazy plant lady’.
The Core Agency has launched an integrated campaign for Osmocote Pour+Feed, a new liquid indoor plant food from Evergreen Garden Care (formerly Scotts Australia).
The integrated campaign is running in Australia and New Zealand and includes TV, digital, social and press.
Osmocote Pour+Feed addresses the growing trend of indoor plant ownership by a group of people dubbed ‘Plant parents’.
Not just for older demographics, people of all ages are proudly sharing photos of their Insta-worthy Monsterias, Fiddle-leaf Figs and Devil’s Ivy plants across social media.
However, only 20% of indoor plants ever get fed, having to make do with just an occasional drink of water.
Osmocote Pour+Feed makes it easy for plant parents to feed their leafy babies so they can grow up big, strong and glossy.
“Most people don’t know that indoor plants require feeding as well as water," Evergreen Garden Care marketing director Mark Ellis says.
"Our new Osmocote Pour+Feed campaign clearly communicates this important fact, in a fun and entertaining way.”
The TVC shows a hungry Monsteria taking matters into its own hands, well leaves, by using its unwitting owner’s mobile to get some Osmocote Pour+Feed home delivered.
It then gives its ‘Crazy plant lady’ owner the shock of her life as she attempts to take a selfie of the two of them.
“We’ve been working with this partner for over eight years and they never stop innovating," The Core Agency founder and creative partner Jon Skinner says.
"For the Osmocote Pour+Feed launch we created a simple entertaining story to communicate how easy it now is to maintain healthy indoor plants.”
This latest creative work comes off the back of the agency’s announcement last week that it had launched a promotional campaign for IGA Supermarkets.
The agency’s client list now includes IGA Supermarkets, QBE Insurance, Key Pharmaceuticals, Evergreen Garden Care, Beem It, Elders Insurance and PwC.
