I’ve replaced buying clothes with buying plants. Luckily, I can buy a lot more plants for cheaper prices than I can the clothes I want.
I still haven’t bought any clothes, but I have a list. It’s very small, but I feel like the fact that these very specific items keep popping into my head mean I feel they would easily mix with everything I have or fill a gap somewhere. I’m not going to buy anything though.
Took a bunch of photos today. Enjoy the eye candy.
This rex begonia looks awful. It’s officially my “ugly” plant, but I still love its dark green velvety leaves. It bloomed this year.
My caladium died last year – or so I thought. I took the root tube out and then notched out the “eyes” like I’d read about. Then I planted the root tube again and watered it. After a few weeks, just when I was ready to give up on it – I noticed sprouts. It’s actually growing back! This is such a huge accomplishment for me.
This little peperomia also bloomed, but I knocked it over when watering and the tiny flower that looks like a stem fell off.
I also recently changed out the dark grey linen sheets for the natural colored ones for summer. We rarely ever make the bed.
The current state of my coffee table – overloaded with little plants.
I went hog wild this weekend buying plants. I bought six, thinking 4 of them I’d take to the office. Now that might only be 3 going. I don’t think the Wandering Jew plant will like so much light in the office window, but the peace lily and other one should be fine.
I caved and bought the trendy indoor tree plant, aka, ficus lyrata. I went to my usual favorite-but-super-expensive fancy nursery and these were very expensive. Then I stopped at Home Depot later in the day and found this one for 1/3 of the price. Since I’ve no idea if I can keep it alive, I figured it was an ok investment. I did splurge on the fancy pot for it though.
This Gold Dust Dracaena is also going to the office.
I spent a fair amount of time repotting my peace lily, golden pothos and other little plants. I had several cuttings from my hanging philodendron in a beer stein glass and finally potted them. Hopefully that will survive. I’ve heard going from water to soil can be a bit traumatic for some plants.
