Plant Shapes  🌿Vanessa | Houseplants (and sometimes a cat) | NYC 📷All photos are my own

Had a chance to try out my new gardening tarp from @rt1home. A very useful tool for small apartment spaces like mine—the tarp keeps soil and water contained, washes easily and rolls up flat. It makes such a difference when you’re creating a total mess! Here I’ve potted up my Philodendron sodiroi in a mix of orchid bark and foxfarm soil, and used @rt1home’s shuro brush to sweep. 💚

Plant shapes at @hortusamsterdam

New York autumn in full swing. Thankfully the plants did fairly well while we were on vacation!

Finally had a chance to visit the incredible @hortusamsterdam. The tropical house was so steamy it fogged up my camera lens(!), but I managed to get a few shots in 🌫

In love with Antwerp! We visited the Museum Plantin-Moretus yesterday and spent the afternoon absorbed. In addition to being a prolific printer, publisher and humanist, Plantin was also an avid botany enthusiast and befriended (and published) many prominent botanists of his day. At the museum (once his home) the garden’s planted in a 16th century style. The scent of lavender was immediate as we stepped outside.

Needless to say I’ve been enamored with this Hoya carnosa

The scene in my terrarium doesn’t change much from month to month 🐌

Like most of my anthuriums this one has been steadily growing over the past year but at a super slow pace. Really amazed at how large the latest leaf has grown relative to its predecessors! Swipe to see when it was about the size of a thumbnail.

My new planter from @bxceramics perfectly matches my Anthurium veitchii 〰️Thank you Becki! If you’re into ceramics check out her page, her work is a beautiful balance between geometric and earthy.

Still a couple days to enter to win a beautiful coiled rope bed from @siamesesocialclub! Check out 2 posts back to enter. 🐱 Ramona’s been enjoying hers under her favorite plant.

GIVEAWAY CLOSED—[Congrats to @nicoab!]
I’m partnering with Kristen of @siamesesocialclub for a giveaway! Finding beautiful cat furniture is pretty much next to impossible, so I was excited to discover SSC’s gorgeous coiled rope beds. Minimalist and well crafted, these blend in seamlessly with the rest of our apartment. Best of all, Ramona loves hers and has taken to sleeping in it almost every night. Kristen makes each bed by hand, using only natural materials like cotton and linen, in earthy colors inspired by the California coast. We're happy to be able to offer our followers the chance to win a thoughtfully designed bed for their cat (or small dog!) in the color of their choice.
