Golden Pothos, AKA Devil’s Ivy, is basically the plant that started it all for me. And each vine has grown about 12 feet long, so I decided to make a few cuttings and start some new plants to spread the love.
#PothosPropagation is as easy as clipping a stem with at least 3 or 4 leaves and right below a “node” (swipe to see next photo) and sticking your cutting in a small jar of water. Once it grows sufficient roots, you can plant it in a small pot of soil! And there you have a baby Pothos!
If you want to begin implementing greenery into your aesthetics, I would strongly recommend starting with a #pothos . They grow like crazy, tolerate being ignored over vacation and will perk right up after a thorough watering 👌🏻 It’s about as easy as it gets. I’ll post a pic of my full-size plant soon, and give you the full care instructions🌱
A check-in 💚 I’m moving abroad for the upcoming year, and sadly that means a break from this account 💔 Very bummed about leaving all my plants behind in Norway, but they’ll be in very good hands 🙏🏻 My new home will definitely be filled with as much greenery as I can fit and afford, so I might be back here every once in a while 😁
Lots of love 💚
Love the tinge of pink on the variegated #stringofhearts ! Also does anyone know what the plant with the big green leaves is called? It was a gift from a friend and the plant did not have a name. #onwednesdaysweplantpink
Get a little dirty and finger your plants. It’s one of the best ways of checking to see if your plant is thirsty or not. People tend to overwater their plants so making sure your plant actually needs a drink beforehand will help prevent root rot / killing your plant.
Simply stick your finger 1-2 inches deep into the soil near the stem and then pull it out. If your finger comes out relatively clean, then it’s time for a watering. If it comes out with a lot of moist dirt then let it dry out for a few more days before watering.
This doesn’t apply to all plants because some plants like to be kept moist and some extra dry, but generally speaking, this is a great rule of finger to apply to your plant care life.
The only way to keeping your plants alive for a long time is to get intimate and truly understand their needs. Not that different from humans. Happy fingering 🌿
So many things happening in this photo but also looks amazing in my opinion. This image glorifies this spot like crazy, it definitely doesn’t look this great. Lighting REALLY makes all the difference! Thanks to @perennialpapi & @shinyhappyleaf for that tip 😜 just had to wait for the sun to almost set and that’s when the light hit perfectly 👌🏽✨
But also here is my #sillappeal as well! Thanks to @nonewplants for nominating me! It’s a very slim spot so it doesn’t really fit plants larger than 4” 🤷🏽♂️ but still something! 😂 I want to nominate @botanicalfiles @jessicasjungle @stamenandstem @vision.planter @phillyfoliage and all of YOU! Please join in! If I tagged everyone, it probably wouldn’t even fit in this caption. I wanna see everyone’s sill! 🤗 #mrplantdad
I just cut these babies off of a mother plant and I wanted to share with y’all how I water propagate and plant these beauties. Swipe left and check out the video! 🍃🌱🍀🌸💜
When I take starts of Moses in the Cradle I try to takes the ones that have 3 leaves or a few more already at the end. Sometimes there are other growths along that same piece. Those can be good for smaller pots or even tiny water propagation stations. I don’t like putting long stems into pots so I tend to break the bottom nodes off and keep one node for root development. It takes less energy away from the plant and allows it to grow faster! In this video you can see that I break apart many plants, but I’m not overly careful. This is a strong and hardy plant that loves water and soil! Happy propagating! 🌿
Every year these gorgeous purple plants get bigger and bigger. Last year I took a small single start off of a random plant in the area and planted it. One year later and it’s almost overtaken the steps that it is beside! I can’t wait to see what they look like next year.
I have always had a soft spot for Moses in the Cradle. I’ve heard many names over the years. ‘Boat lily’ or ‘purple hearts’ are common names as well. I have seen these growing in the the general south, but they may do well in parts of the North, but I’m not totally sure. Sometimes you just have to see what plants like your environment and test it out!
I’m thinking about doing a small giveaway of a start from one of my plants. Would y’all be interested in something like that? If so, what plants of mine would you like a start of? Sharing is caring! 💜
Would you want to take this bike for a spin? I know we do! Because Planty Rides are the best rides! 🌸 ⠀
Otherwise known as a Pelargonium, this plant is adorable in a bike basket (obvi) 😊 but is also mysterious. It can be hard to identify due to the fact that it has so many species (think lemon-, rose-, chocolate- and mint-scented types). 🚲✨⠀

Yes, I broke the buy ban...but let’s be honest for a minute. When you go to @logeesplants with your plant partner in crime (@farm.coast.house.plants 😘) you break the ban momentarily!! Especially when this H. Fitchii with an umbel ready to bloom is part of the welcoming committee 😂
H. Fitchii was never really on my radar. Mainly because I thought the leaves were much bigger. But soon as I saw these cute little veiny leaves, I was in love!! And that umbel pretty much had me sold!! This plant is BIG you guys!! Although it’s only in a 2.5” pot, it’s wrapped around itself at least three times and that tendril in the top right is about a foot and a half long 🤩 Logees strikes again!!!
