I have always loved plants. Staying indoors due to COVID-19 meant buying them was a must since I couldn’t visit the lovely gardens and plant babies at my friends’ houses.
And so it begins…
It started off with one or two coming from my monthly subscription to Lunarly, but with the opening of a new plant store nearby, it soon became an obsession. Now I have succulents everywhere, in addition to a money tree, Norfolk Island pine, a teeny tiny air plant, pothos, and more. After getting the right tools and accessories, I started re-potting and decorating.
Naturally, I also took a plant to my work office where it sits at my desk for instant serotonin. It fits in well with the other large ferns and vines already vibing with laptops and big screens. Who says technology and nature don’t go together?
Green or Black Thumb?
When I initially went in search of some house plants, I asked for ones I absolutely could not kill. This was because I had some poor succulents lose their will to live after over-watering them, not giving them enough sunlight, or just forgetting they were there. Oops…
Thankfully, I was pointed in the right direction and found the right ones for my busy schedule. Armed with information, hopefully I can turn my black thumb into a green one.
