Questa è perché le piante grasse mi stanno simpatiche. Sono quelle che mi danno più soddisfazione con minor sforzo.
Ma è anche perché non avevo foto dei miei piedi in squisite francesine di vernice su un tappeto di foglie secche.
Happy #whatshanginwednesday 💚 I got this #burrostail at a garage sale (the best place to buy plants!!!), I need to repot it but every time I move it a thousand pieces fall off 😂 I’m planning a green wall with some @wallygro planters so I think it will find its happy place soon!
🌱 PILEA PEPEROMOIDES 🌱
Also known as ‘Chinese money plant’, Pileas are a more unusual looking house plant that have taken social media by storm and are fortunately also extremely easy to care for.
A little on the rarer side, It’s hard to figure out why these plants are so hard to come by when they grow so quickly and are one of the easiest plants to propagate.
If you manage to get your hands on one some quick care tips are:
☀️ Bright, indirect sun
💦 Weekly in summer, Fortnightly in winter
🌱 Seasol fortnightly year round and Power feed every month in spring/summer only.
Also: Rotate your plant once a week to keep it’s spread even.
Give a terracotta pot a million dollar makeover with a bold coat of metallic gold paint. After all every pot deserves a bit of bling! Paint it gold from top to bottom or dress up the bottom third for a pot you’ll truly treasure.

Tag me in your fave stem “pupdates” and I’ll repost them in my stories! 👶🏻🍼 I know I can’t be the only one who is (abnormally?) fascinated by this kind of propagation, right?
I s*+^^~=d this Caladium from the Philippines and it hasn’t had a lot of time since I planted it in June to grow to its potential size. I managed to get 2-3 leaves and they’re not as big as when I got it from the plant shop in Quezon Circle. Just to clarify - I’m not moaning! 😊 I’m actually amazed that it sprouted while in transit and even managed to give me leaves in grey and dreary England! Next year, fingers crossed, it’ll grow for me again! 🤞#onwednesdaysweplantpink#wednesdaysweplantpink#caladium
Sorry for the lack of posts lately! I have been in full blown nesting mode 👶🏼
Today I spent my day shuffling plants around and also getting rid of a few that had seen better days 🤕
Another important task I try to do regularly is to wipe the dust from the leaves of my plants. This FLF seems to gather more dust than any of my other large leafed babies so he is no stranger to having a sponge bath on the reg. Regular dusting of your plants leaves means they are able to soak up light and photosynthesize at their maximum capacity 🍃
My Sansevieria has grown a whole new leaf and there’s comes another! 🌱
Very easy going, low maintenance, and watering went from ever week in the summer to every two weeks now 💞 #succievibes#sansevieria
Was at a #CrazyRichAsian house ytd located at the Beverly Hills of Singapore (Sentosa). It made me wonder: If a plant addict had so much money, what would she or he do? 🤔 Plant wise, I’d probably set up my urban mansion and for a garden, I’d upscale it into a nursery of my dreams.
Anyhow, I wasn’t able to post ytd so and I wanted to show off my new pups! So here are my Tillandsia ionanthas (different variety/form) having babies after a flowering phase a few weeks back. I’m a Grandfather! 🙆🏻♂️🎉
This whole room is such goals! Hope it’s giving you guys as much Inspo as it is for me. 🌿
I actually love the range of pots and planter stands that @adairs stocks, it’s an instant and easy way to display your plants beautifully! I usually order online as some stores don’t stock everything, and they are often on sale.
No this is not an ad or sponsored post, I just really love their stuff! Where have you found beautiful pots and stands?
I just can’t get over the size of this Monstera Adansonii by @pistilsnursery
Definitely plant goals!
One trick to get larger leaves on your climbing plants is to give them a support such as a coconut coir stake for the aerial roots to attach to. I’ll show you over the next few days how to make your own!
