Greetings and salutations, plant lovers. Welcome to my little plant haven. You probably found me from my cuttings up on IG, but if not, I would love to know how you found your way to my little urban oasis.
This is the place you want to be if you're a newbie plant parent and wants some care tips, or a messy, seasoned one who is just here for the tea with all the plant drama that goes on in these parts.
Plant parenting is DEF a full time job. I know you may be eager to get to a particular number of plants because your fav planfluencer has 167, please be mindful of the commitment that these green chirren require. Some popular plants are easy care and require bi weekly watering. Some monthly, others (depending on location,) can need a drink daily.
If you go out and pick up 15 high maintenance plants from Lowe's and work a full time job, your kids have a ton of activities, your job requires you to travel or spend an extended amount of time from home, your plant babies can suffer. Not only can the cost of plants add up over time, but there is nothing more heartbreaking than killing on of your babies due to neglect.
Just an example, I spend the first hour of my day checking on my plant kids. Seeing if they need water, checking for pest or other issues and handling them accordingly. Some days it takes 15 min, others it may be several hours. So please, decide how much time you can dedicate to your garden and grow your collection gradually, I know having an IG worthy indoor jungle right of the bat can be tempting.
Learning about your plants is the next step. All plants, while they may look similar, can have different needs. This space was designed to equip you with the tools you need to help your plant family thrive. I urge you to join as a member of the Sister Sunflower Plant Community.
