Until very recently, THIS is the only plant I have in my entire house (thanks Diane!). But this little cactus’ health has been steadily failing. How do you kill a cactus?
So my mother took it upon herself to gift me several of her house plants. This is good for two reasons.
1) House plants bring a home to life and look so fresh and stylish!
2) I desperately need to learn a thing or two about how to care for plants. I have so little experience, I don’t even KNOW if I have a black thumb or not.
This lovely mystery plant has grown about 20 inches in the last two weeks. It started off as a little stub of green in a mason jar of rocks (??) and look at her now!! We’re loving these little blossoms, and they’re VERY fragrant. Almost too fragrant for my weak pregnant stomach. Momma informed me it’s a Paper White Narcissus.
Obviously, this is an Aloe plant… who doesn’t love Aloe? And super easy to care for too!
Ok, this pot is to die for. I don’t know where she got it, but it’s so incredibly adorable. And the plant within is some sort of Lilly as far as I can tell.
And finally, this little colorful bugger is one of my favorites! So perky and bright!
I’m loving the new fresh vibe in my home, and hope that things work out between me and the plants. Ok honestly, Nick has been watering them… not that I asked him to. He just enjoys it. And I enjoy watching. And it’s a good way for me to learn, right?
Do any of you have a serious lack of knowledge regarding greenery? Or a knack for killing the foliage in your home? Let’s hear about it.
