My birthday present from my mother was so thoughtful. She knew I needed some bigger bottles and a better place to contain them, so she sent this lovely little set. 🥰 (also how about that #marblequeenpothos ). #crazyplantlady .

I bought one of my favorite plants, my little rubber tree, last year. We were looking for a new Christmas tree and I brought this home instead. Maybe I’ll string a few lights on it this year . #crazyplantlady .

The first bloom of my African Violet (aka Toto). I took a gamble with one that hadn’t flowered yet. I’m not a huge fan of purple and pink, but I wanted something that would have flowers. I love that it’s a white one (with a touch of violet). At the end of the day though, I was just excited to keep something alive long enough to flower. 🤷‍️ #crazyplantlady .

These little bowls had tiny pockets for, I assume, crackers or maybe a spoon. I planted little succulents that weren’t doing so well, and small portions of plants I split up in them. No idea how they’ll do in there, but you never know unless you try 🤷‍️. #crazyplantlady .

And in my stories today I did a little follow-up on how to plant in pots (or soup bowls) that don’t have drainage. I had to learn this because I like to ONLY plant in planters that can’t drain. It’s because they’re always so pretty and unique. I can’t help it. 🤦‍️ #crazyplantlady .

This little guy scared me when I repotted him because EVERY SINGLE ROOT fell apart. I was left with a very short root system but I planted it anyway and gave it some root food. It’s lost a lot of the original leaves but it’s sprouted so many new ones, so hopefully I can keep it going🤞. It’s definitely a plant I check on every day. #crazyplantlady .

A little more  + . I love decorating. I’m not one for change, but the changing of the seasons I can totally get behind. Once September hits I’m ready to start moving toward the best time of the year (). Anything I can decorate before then makes me happy. #crazyplantlady .

It’s Sunday so it’s a great day for a Prayer Plant feature. It’s never been a favorite, but I brought it home because I needed something for my kitchen and I love its movement. I was watering and cleaning it yesterday and I think I’ve developed a greater appreciation for it. The different shades of green, the veins, and it’s trailing vines. They all make a very lovely plant.  #crazyplantlady .

My favorite part of plants is that you can grow new ones from them and then give them to people who will love them too.   #crazyplantlady .
