Silent Meditation On A House Plant.
In the northern hemisphere, we will soon be headed into the grey of winter.
Perhaps, while the weather is still warm enough, head out and get a house plant (if you don’t have one already). During the grey days that are coming, mindfully caring for and looking at the vivid colours will be refreshing for the eyes (and the mind). Often, I find just caring for plants slows me down (in a good way), and gives my heart and mind a happier more connected rhythm.
Basic House Plant Watering Tips - Spider plants like the ones in the video are very hearty. It's a good plant for a beginner.
- Most plants need to be watered just once a week.
- Better that the soil is a little dry - than too wet.
- I always try to think in terms of providing enough water to get down to the bottom of the roots.
- If you live someplace dry, mist a green plant with water once a week. - Yellow limp leaves often mean too much water or that it is being watered too often.
- Browning tips often mean the water is not getting to the roots. Continue to water once a week, but try adding just a bit more water when you do.
Plants are silently living and ‘breathing’. Being here is all they need to be.
