Recently I posted a picture on Instagram holding one of my new plants and I asked if I should write a blog post and a couple people said yes, so here we are! I have a few different plants in my house so I thought it would be cool to write a post now so in a few years I could look back and see if I still have the same plants!
First up is my spider plant, I think this is the one that I’ve had the longest (probably just over two years). It’s funny because getting this plant was kind of an “accident” I guess. I was at the farmers market buying some plants (which are now dead 😦 ) and I saw this spider plant behind the counter and asked “how much?”. The guy said: “Oh that one? You probably don’t want it because it’s all broken and almost dead. You know what, you can just have it for free”. I didn’t think it would survive very long but here we are! It’s full and thriving! I love that I can take clippings off of it and make new babies!
My golden pothos is actually a clipping that my aunt and uncle had given me from their pothos. I got this one from them about two years ago as well. These ones grow pretty steadily and I’ve been able to take 2 other clippings off the first and replant into a new pot! I love these guys because their trailing is so pretty and can add a lot to a room.
One of my favourite looking plants is the snake plant. I just love their shape and the shade of green that they are. I got this one last year and it has made some significant growth! I also love these plants because they are very forgiving if you forget to water them.
Most of my plants are new additions that I’ve gotten within the last few months.
When I went to a green house to pick up some plants for my garden, I happen to see this beautiful plant. I knew I had to get it because it looked really cool. It kind of reminds me of string of pearls but more leafy. I’m sad I didn’t take down the name because I can’t remember for the life of me what it’s actually called. I’m pretty sure it’s a succulent because it has the same texture as one and leaves aren’t really flat but more “bodacious”.
I originally got my Hosta because I was going to plant it outside but I decided I wanted to keep it inside because it needs shade and all the places around my house are pretty much direct sun. I’m really excited to see if it will do well inside my house.
In the last week I’ve gotten three new plants: A pothos n’ joy, a yucca and a little fiddle.
The pothos n’ joy is very similar to my golden pothos, but the leaves are a more faded green rather than deep green. I ended up getting this pot from Dollarama and it’s SO cute.
I am so excited that I finally got a yucca! They are such cool looking plants. I did some research and found that the reason they have such small pots is because they are a plant that likes to have their roots very close and compacts so that’s why you gave to keep them in a fairly small pot!
Last, but certainly not least, is my little fiddle. I’ve wanted a fiddle for as long as I can remember. Personally I think that these plants are the most beautiful. I don’t know what it is about them, but I just love how their leaves look. Since I got a little fiddle, it is quite small right now, but I hope with time and love that it’ll grow into a tree!
So there you have it, those are my plant babies (so far). There are a lot more that I would like to get but for now this is what I have and I love how it makes my home feel more alive! On top of my real plants I actually have quite a few faux plants. Here are some pictures of those too because I feel they need love.
Thank you for reading!!
