Meet Caleb Jones

Caleb Jones founded Gen1 Greenhouse at age 15. He developed his interest in plants at age 13 when a neighbor gave him his first plant, a Ghost Plant. Soon after, his parent’s bought him a 7′ x 8′ pop-up greenhouse that he quickly filled with 400 plants!

Caleb soon took to social media and began sharing his knowledge with a growing audience. Some of his most popular videos are

Realizing he needed more space, Caleb took pre-orders for mums in a variety of colors (red, white, yellow, gold, purple, and hot pink.) He used the proceeds from the mums to purchase his own 16′ x 24′ Caterpillar Tunnel house. Since that time, Gen1 held it’s first sale on Memorial Day weekend 2024 of plants raised entirely in-house, including a variety of succulents, lantana, wandering jew, and more.

Caleb worked with the Small Business Development Center to establish his business, and is a member of the Texas Nursery & Landscape Association. He was a guest of the TNLA at the Hort Forum in Grapevine, Texas, in January 2024 and received the support of a number of industry professionals that he met there.

Caleb and Gen1 will be featured in the July 2024 issue of Around the Town magazine, a locally produced paper in the East Texas area.

When asked about the name, Gen1 Greenhouse, Caleb’s answer is, “The name Gen1 Greenhouse comes from Genesis 1:12, ‘And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.'” Above all, Caleb wants to bring glory to God.
