    Doing some #plantadmin on this lazy Sunday. I don’t have any high maintenance plants because I’m not convinced I could keep them alive 🙊! But I love just spending a couple hours a week inspecting and watering my cacti, peace lily and monsteras!

    So I brought home a few new goodies from the local garden centre! They sure help to freshen up the decor! 
I am pretty set on painting my door a colour now, can you guess what colour I chose!

    A set of 3 creative, patterned cement planters with bamboo water trays. Elegant country style planters that would look lovely with succulents in them, or perhaps a Love Palm or soft Maidenhair fern is more your cup of tea.

    I love good ol’ terra cotta pots because they age well, but I’ve also been collecting some ceramic, concrete, and abaca pots/planters. Will slowly pot some of my fave (tried & tested!) indoor plants to share with other crazy plant folks, and those who want to start but are too scared to kill their plant babies. 🌱

Stay tuned!

I started as a serial plant killer too, but finding the right plant for your space is more important than “having a green thumb,” if there’s even such a thing.

I believe in having proper conditions for growth first, then learning about proper care. You can eventually play “proper care” by ear with more experience and taking cues from your plant (e.g. how it looks like if overwatered, etc). But it’s difficult to cheat the ideal conditions (esp amount of sunlight)!

    Plants are drama queens- 1 hour rehabilitation

Its funny because when i was younger i thought i had the opposite of a green thumb- i was sure i was destined to kill every plant i ever had. I couldnt ever figure out why- i followed the instructions to a T and tried different placements. "Does partial sun mean sorta in the sun or sorta in the shade?!" Id scream to myself while i moved them sometimes 3 times a day

Now my neighbors walk by and i hear them saying things like "how do her plants get so big?" "How does she keep them alive?"
And i can fully say its by throwing away the rulebook and just listening to what your plants actually want because frankly plants are drama queens!

My younger self would have seen these 4 all wilted and lost all hope. "Theyre as good as dead. Why bother?" Now i can look at them and say "well arent you being a bit dramatic here?" And take care of them

These drama queens i forgot to water last night and because i missed ONE watering theyre gonna flail their little green arms and scream 'FINE I GUESS ILL JUST DIE NOW!' all they really needed was some talking to, a glass of water, and a little timeout in the shade. An hour later and theyre perfectly fine. They just needed to throw a temper tantrum for a second.

If youre having trouble keeping plants alive and cant figure out why, just remember- plants are drama queens. Dont give up.

    Philodendron congo (green congo)
—
💡Low maintenance
🏠 Perfect indoor plant. This spot in my condo receives zero sunlight.
🌞 Absolute shade, please!
⛰ Soil must drain well
💦 Allow top soil to become dry before watering again. In my experience, watering once a week indoor suffices.
♥️ I left it by the windowsill (super indirect light that’s not even bright) for a few days once, and I already burned 2 leaves! Now I hardly take it even to the windowsill. I just water it in its spot.
🐶 Not safe for pets

    Peperomia Caperata Schumi Red or Luna Red. Not entirely sure what the difference is. All I know is that silvery blue against the maroon red is drop dead gorgeous, am I right?? 😍 This one is such a stunner in my opinion. It's abit snug in this pot but I think the pot brings out its colours? 🤔

    Fernando is the sweetest of all the cacti. He’s not prickly since all his spines point inward. Fernando is very shy but once you get to know him he is really fun and a little wild. We made his handmade planter specifically for his needs. He’s very low maintenance and only needs a few drops of water once a month. Adopt him through the shop link in our profile!

    〰 Which do you love more? 〰Smallest plants or largest plants? 
The Surprise Micro Minis are flying out of the greenhouse into our handmade planters to go out to their forever homes! We shipped out 44 of these little ones yesterday! We can’t get enough of them. Making these little planters and matching them up with the right sized cactus so that the plant will stay the same size is so time consuming but so worth it! You can adopt them all —each with their own name—through the link in our profile!
