Maybe this is just a natural transformation that has been sped up by living in a big city without any type of yard, porch, patio, etc. but I’m definitely thinking I’m at a the turning point to becoming a “plant lady”. While my husband is glad it’s not a cat lady (not allowed in our apartment anyway), he’s still a bit hesitant of my new love for greenery. That’s not to say he isn’t supportive of my ideas, he just knows that I don’t exactly have a green thumb…
I successfully cared for three herbs last summer – basil, rosemary, and oregano – but they all failed eventually. I lost the basil to aphids, and the rosemary and oregano just sort of gave up. I tried doing research on how to save them, but it was too late.
Next I tried my hand at a succulent – I figured those were almost impossible to mess up. However, my little plant was over-cared for (touchy) and ended up getting so tall that it couldn’t hold itself up anymore!
However, I think I’m getting the hang of things. I successfully cared for this little guy I found in the indoor/easy care plant section of Home Depot all the way through the winter and it’s GROWING!
So I got a little more confident and purchased this one from Lowe’s – also indoor, low light, easy care, etc. and I’m proud to say it’s going strong.
But I’ll tell ya, I’m kind of on a confidence boost and dreaming of bigger greens. I mentioned this in my Spring Decor Wishlist, but it’s gotten stronger (or worse, according to the hubs). Here’s what’s been inspiring me lately!
Anyone else out there in a plant craze? How have your green thumb adventures been going, I always need tips! You can also follow me on Pinterest to be inspired more!
