When your plant is too long for my 'normal' portrait with plant. Still in love with these velvet leaves!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Since the vines grew so long, I've guided some back up to the soil and pinned them there with an area root node towards the ground. That way the plant will take root again, getting water and nutrients quicker to the leaves. Which will result in a stronger plant! If the root node has shoot out roots, you could even cut the vine leading towards it and let that branch out again. An easy way to get a fuller plant πŸ’–

I just can't get enough of this view! It's what I see in the morning when I wake up and in the evening when I go to sleep! 😴 My bed is a pretty plantless area, as it is pressed into a corner with only white walls, so you'll have to believe me I'm actually sitting on my bed while taking this one. Maybe one day I'll find a good picture corner that includes the bed as well πŸ˜„

New workshop dates! It's so much fun to drive around the Netherlands and spreading the plant love! πŸŒ±πŸ’– So I'm doing that again in May! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The Super Green Fingers workshop is traveling again. I'll visit five @DilleEnKamille stores and tell you everything you need to know about your green roommates!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I'll be visiting Groningen, Breda, Arnhem, Rotterdam and Haarlem. Check the link in bio to see the dates and get a ticket.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The workshops are in Dutch. You'll learn about plant care, propagation and repotting. And you'll go home with two lovely plants provided by @EdenPlanten. A beautiful Pilea peperomioides and a Tolmiea menziesii to try out your new propagation skills!

A royal beauty this Clusia Princess! πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ Together with the Sansevierias they brighten up the bedroom and make sure the air is clean! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I made a video full of care tips, which you can find in the link in my bio! What do you think of this plant?

Second year of these lovely Oxalis bulbs! πŸ’– During the winter they died down on me, so I took the bulbs from the soil to replant them again a few weeks ago. Now I am a happy plant mom with Oxalis butterflies for a second year! β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

When I just started my plant collection I was a student with very little money. So I almost only grew plants from cuttings! The plants usually don't grow as perfectly like those grown in green houses, but they have their own story and are unique in every way! This Euphorbia is a baby of my dad's plant and the Haworthia in front is a cutting from my grandmothers plant. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
It does take more time to get a fully grown plant, but the process is worth so much. So I can't wait to give my first plant cutting/propagation workshop this Sunday! It's sold out, but who knows if there will be more in the future! (Let me know if you are interested!)

Do you check your plants every now and then for bugs and pests? Apparently this one had a few mealy bugs on it! Luckily not so many, so I inspected it closely, wiping away any that I see with a q-tip with some alcohol on it. I'll be keeping a close eye on it and check it regularly.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
What is your most reluctant pest? Mine must be the thrips... They always return...

How's it hanging?! I love hanging plants, because they don't use ground or shelve space! Pictured here are a Monstera Adansonii, Epiphyllum ackermanii (with flowers about to burst open!!!), another Epiphyllum, Schlumbergera and Tradescantia in the back.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Okay, it might be a bit crowded, but that's half the fun right? Also it's about time to trim that Ficus elastica I think! 😊 The beautiful hanger in the front is made by @miniswells β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

Kitchen freak outs! We have this one orange wall and apparently the whole kitchen used to be like this (before my time!) But it does look nice with the Philodendron micans πŸ™Œ
