I don’t quite know how or when it happened, but my apartment is overflowing with plants and I can’t stop buying more! I’m hooked on the greenery look and have been loving how much plants can add to a space – from leafy palms to cacti and succulents, they’re the perfect touch for any room in your home.
Recently I found out about Leon & George, a really cool San Francisco company that sells amazing plants AND delivers them, in a pot, right to your apartment. How brilliant?! After murdering my fiddle leaf fig in my last apartment, I was a bit scared to add another giant plant to the mix but they gifted me one of their gorgeous Bird of Paradise plants and I am smitten and best of all, the thing is pretty darn easy (so far, so good!). But that’s not all… I’m now also the proud owner of a gigantic cactus that I found on CraigsList, yes CraigsList. Who even buys plants on CraigsList?! And there’s no sign of stopping as I’m already dreaming and scheming plans for a few more plant babies to add to my apartment as I finalize up decorating.
Knock on wood but they all seem to be pretty happy at the moment. After a series of plant mishaps over the years (including many succulent deaths), I’ve learned that the secret to happy plants is routine. Keeping ’em all on a regular watering schedule and adding a reoccurring reminder to my calendar has been keeping things green around here, while I’ve also been working on watering my cacti and succulents less. I swear the plants are more work than Callie sometimes!
Anyone else plant crazy at the moment? What are some of your favorite plants or places for plants in your home? Anyone out there with a green thumb have some advice for me?
