It is no secret that I love plants and love being surrounded by them. It is my goal inlife to have a glassed-in conservatory on the back of my house when I’m older where I can keep all of my plants and have my own little private jungle. I have yet to scratch the surface of plants that I want with the ones that I have already, so I decided that I should make a list for you guys with all of the plants that I want to own in the future. Philodendron Prince of Orange I love colore
It has been two months since my last plant tour and I have definitely added a few new plants to my collection. You may notice some plants are missing since my last plat update. I assure you that they are alive and well, they have just been gifted to friends and family. African Violet So my african violet was definitely in some bad shape about a month ago. I had problems with water quality which caused the tips on some of its oldest leaves to turn brown. I have since remedied
It’s no secret that I love plants and love having them around me. With stores like Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowes opening up their spring and summer garden centers, I have found myself amassing more and more plants in the past month. One thing that has always been challenging for me, is remembering all the little care needs for each individual plant.

I scoured Etsy for some of the cutest and coolest products for any plant person in your life. The mug that started the whole idea for this post. This Plant Lady Mug by AsterAndRoseMerc is a bestseller in their shop, and it is easy to see why. This huge mug resembles a plant person’s best friend, a terra cotta pot. You will
It is no secret that I love plants and enjoy nurturing them to get them to grow larger, fuller, and more beautiful. I take much pride in being a crazy plant lady and I’m not kidding when I tell you that I am running out of space in my window for all my plants at this point in my dorm. Luckily the shelf that my roommate and I use works as extra window space, so I’ve been able to indulge myself with a few extra plants. When I started off the school year in August, I had three p
African Violets are known for their velvet leaves and their beautiful deep purple, magenta, and white flowers. They are a beautiful addition to any window sill, but are notorious for being fickle and hard to care for. My grandmother kept African violets in her home since I was a little girl, and she always said, “People think they are difficult because they just don’t know how to take care of them.” On my recent trip to a nursery, I found a display of African violets that mad
