Plant Blogger and Lover  πŸŒΏπŸƒ I'm a believer that plants make life better. πŸ’« 🌱 Watch my latest Houseplant Tour on YouTube, bedroom edition! ⬇️

My first caudex that was doing fine while I took this photo, isn't so happy any more! 😒 We need to share the plant failures also right? The bulb caught rot, I probably overwatered it and didn't gave it enough light. So I cut away the rot and treated the wound. It's still unclear whether or not he will survive. Super sad! Luckily there are enough healthy and happy caudexs flowing around on Instagram 😊😊

Do you like these plants and would you want to grow them?

This beauty has grown a lot! Just in time for #marantamonday, I repotted it and gave the hanger made by @miniswells a new spot.

Beautiful Strelitzia popped out a new leaf! It's so big! Normally I don't meddle with leaves that are unfolding, but this one took an unhealthy long time. So I gently ran my finger along the edge where the leaf was stuck and it unrolled super super fast. Clearly it needed some help. Also it has not totally unfolded after that, I'm a bit afraid that is the damage of being cramped up for too long. Let's hope it'll smooth out!

Have you had succes with unrolling leaves or do you try not to touch them? 🌱

What do you do with your plants when you go on vacation? ⛺️
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
This week I went to my dad's house to water his plants and he will water mine when I'm gone. If I travel for longer, we always find someone to live in our house and take care of the plants. Though last time we did that, there weren't as many as there are now...! Always prepare for some casualties.

Plenty of planty corners in the house! Sharing my beautiful Philodendron warscewiczii aurea for #philodendronfriday. And a recently pruned Crassula ovata. I want to keep it small and it got mealybugs, so I just went to it with the scissors βœ‚βœ‚ I've done it before and the results are always satisfying (and who doesn't love new baby leaves?!)

When you can't not touch that beautiful leaf 😍 I'm still amazed by these beautiful leaves of the Alocasia Stingray. They seem to be floating in space.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Which plant can't you resist touching every now and then? 🌿 I do hope it's not a cactus!

Let me know where you are from!✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
As you probably already know I'm from the Netherlands, which is gold for a plant lover. Loads of plant grower have their nurseries here, so plants are usually a bit cheaper than in other countries. And the growers try to keep up with demands, so we were one of the first countries where the Pilea was available in stores! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
How is the plant availability where you live?

When finally the shelves are up! And the wall is painted! Cooking is now so much more fun 🍝🍳 β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Just a little back story: I found these awesome golden shelf supports, only to realize after buying that the wood must be wider than all the standard shelves we could find. So it was either really expensive beautiful wood or fixing two cheaper shelves together. We went for the cheaper option of course. Lot of sanding and painting and some help from my dad later: tadaaa! ✨
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I guess it's inevitabel that more will be added here. 🌡🌿 Sorry, not sorry! It's also the perfect propagation corner.

This window sill, which I barely photograph, but where a lovely collection of cacti and succulents live. I normally stage them a bit, but this is their natural habitat. Together with a Monstera Minima which is growing wildly without any support, just to add some messy charm to the space 😊

This guy is going crazy and just pops out new leaves! It's an Alocasia that isn't too fussy, though I do think it's time for me to give it a bigger pot! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Do you have a favorite Alocasia? I love this Stingray, also because it's not so massively big as the Wentii I own and had to move to the studio. And it's the most elegant plant I own. ✨

Cut away two of those lovely ears, to propagate this beauty! Who has tried that before? It always is scary taking the knife and cutting into favorite plants right?
