Air Layer Propagation Must Haves

If you follow me on TikTok you’d know the success I’ve been having with my air layering. I wanted to go over in better detail what I use to be able to achieve this method of propagation. For me, it just makes sense not having to worry about stem rotting with water propagation. There is a lot less risk involved.

Leca Introduction For Beginners

I am fairly new to using Leca Medium for my plants but I wanted to share with you what I’ve learned and will continue to add more as my knowledge grows over time. As you may know, if you follow me on TikTok, I’ve purchased a nice size 10 Liter bag off of Amazon and have been able to convert about 20 plants over to Leca. Some of the plants are brand new to being transferred over to this medium but there are ones that have been in this medium for well over a month or so. I can say they are all still alive and appear to be happy. Being that I have over 120 plants and counting…I don’t have any plans of converting all my plants to this medium but so far like to do with ones I feel are still developing a solid root system or ones that have a tendency to get root rot because of heavier water needs.

Etsy Shops I Love To Buy Plants From

COMING SOON!

Here is a list of Online Plant Shops I love. Most listed will be from Etsy but there will be others that I’ll be happy to share here from the other websites and apps I purchase from.

It’s all about having a great experience when purchasing online and I feel that it’s important to connect those that are looking at the stores that are can be trusted and are mention-worthy.

I’ll also like my other lists, do my best to keep this updated as time progresses.

Through the Storm

If you are here then it is my guess you are wanting to know more about my motive and reason for selling my current items on my website.

I feel this isn’t my story to share. It’s my brother and his family’s story and when they are ready I am sure it will be told. From the perspective of where I stand though I can say there are ripple effects of trauma felt deeply ever since the day I found out…my brother and his family were brutally attacked and robbed. I can’t tell you the number of tears I’ve shed over these what otherwise seem to be simple words…only words…but combined with a force that one can’t begin to imagine. I have to back up a bit and tell you a little more about who my brother is and what his family does every day.

Get Great Deals & Finds on Plants Online

Over the course of my newest obsession with plant collecting…I’ve discovered the hot spots of where to find good deals on very popular and rarer plants. Although keep in mind you are often getting what you pay for so if you are paying less for a plant it is often because it is cutting or a starter plant. I’ve never gotten a full-sized large plant online because I’ve never found a price point where I would feel comfortable spending yet. Mind you I’m still learning plants as this new venture in my life so all of this is still fairly new to me. I’ve just happened to learn a lot in the short time I’ve started collecting this year.

Finding A Pink Princess Philodendron

Over the course of the past couple of days, I got it in my head I “needed” a Pink Princess Philodendron. So my search began….I knew there was a better chance of me winning the lotto than finding one at any of my local nurseries, so I resorted to searching online. In doing so, I uncovered an underlying addiction to plant buying. I discovered quickly that it was going to be a nearly impossible feat in being able to find one under $200-$300. I looked into all the sources online and even found NEW apps to be able to buy plants from. YIKES, and did I ever find some plants. In my search and discovery of these new apps…I came across so many…(what it appeared to me) to be incredible deals of plants on my want list and plants I didn’t know were on my want list for exceptional prices. I say exceptional pricing lightly because they were still a lot of money for the rarer ones…but far less expensive than the going rate I was finding everywhere else.

Quarantine & TikTok has me Obsessing Over Plants

I know I’m not the ONLY person to find this new addition, habit or hobby. I find myself literally obsessing and changing my entire daily routine to be about my PLANTS. I might have developed an issue as it’s gotten so bad. I can’t seem to find myself to want to think about much else…plants I want to buy…plants that I’m buying online…and checking on my plants and cuttings and leaves and soil and fertilizers and moisture levels. It’s a bit crazy but my thought process…if it’s easing my way through the extreme changes of what is going on around us then what’s it really hurting.

Made For More!

I remember the first time I came across Rachel Hollis…

Pssst….I promise the free download is here…

I saw her pictured in a shirt stating her famous words “Made For More”. These words struck me to my core. It was as if my-true-self had literally jumped up and yelled at me the very words I had been telling myself all along. It was that confirmation of hey world I’m not alone in this fight to wanting to be More than what I am right now. I didn’t realize at that time that it was her brand and her words she happened to be wearing…
