Planty Care tips πŸ₯΄πŸŒΏ

Welcome to the first instalment of the Planty Care tips πŸ₯΄πŸŒΏ series. I hope you enjoy my sharing with you, common, and maybe not so common, care tips, πŸ₯΄πŸŒΏ and planty suggestions as much as I enjoy sharing them with you. 😎🌴🌿

I’ve started with what are, to me,  some of the more important considerations we can take into account before acquiring Planty friends. πŸ€—πŸŒΏ

Planty Care tips πŸ₯΄πŸŒΏ

First thing I think of when getting/buying plants is how much attention I’ll give it. If it grabs my attention in picture or flesh then I’m more likely to pay it more attention once it’s home. 🌿🏠 I tend to go for what catches my eye over what’s popular. I also like and grow some popular plants too. 🀫🌿

I imagine where the plant is likely to live in my environment. πŸ€”πŸŒΏ I usually have a couple of places in mind. πŸ‘πŸ» The ones I like the look of I research care needs etc… I use various sources for this. My own experience of many years growing plants included. πŸŒΏπŸ’ž Usually left behind when I’ve moved, hay ho, I’ve always gotten more. πŸŒΏπŸ πŸ’ž

If I enjoy the look and feel I get from the plant then I’ll usually collect it, at least, these days I will. πŸ€­πŸŒΏπŸ’ž

I’m blessed with great light in my little house. East windows, sun in south windows till after 4pm. East and South windows in the same room. A good 8 hours of great light in both my main rooms. πŸ πŸŒΏπŸ’ž

Saying that, I still consider the lightning in my environment. πŸ€”πŸŒžπŸ πŸŒΏ I tend towards medium to bright light, some direct. 🌞😎🌿 In my experience most plants do well indoors in medium to bright light conditions πŸ‘πŸ» That’s not to say that with medium to low light, that you can’t have your space thriving with some green. I think I’d manage wherever light I was in.🀭🌿😎

So I consider where I will place them, the light they will bask in. πŸ€”πŸ πŸŒΏ

Plants (some) in my experience only tolerate low light. They survive. 😐🌿 To thrive? They all seem to prefer medium to bright light, well, all the ones I choose.πŸŒ΄πŸŒžπŸ˜ŽπŸŒΏπŸ’ž

I’m not a lover of high maintenance* plant care. 🀭🌿🀫 This also comes to mind when choosing my 🏠🌿 guests. πŸ’ž I go from a scale of low maintenance – medium maintenance.πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ§πŸ˜‚πŸŒ΄πŸŒΏ No high dramas here please. πŸ™πŸ»

*High maintenance – Anything you have to buy electric humidifiers for and/or pay hundreds of pounds for and/or a plant you have to faff around with. πŸ˜‚πŸŒ΄πŸŒΏ

“I raise the humidity enough for some Calathea (medium maintenance) using trays and bowls of water. Look out for the πŸ‘‰πŸ»blogπŸ‘ˆπŸ» on that. πŸ˜Žβ›²πŸŒ΄πŸŒΏβ›²πŸ˜Ž”

Out in nature plants grow everywhere. 🌾 With little fuss and interference from us (humans) so I like to adopt the same sentiment with my indoor wilderness. πŸ πŸŒΏπŸ’ž 

Once their needs/conditions are met in regards to lightning and humidity I pretty much like to leave them to it and watch them grow. 😎🌴🌿

Of course, I buzz about them almost every day. Checking for dead leaves πŸ‚ and keeping them bug free. πŸ¦ŸπŸ›πŸŒ΄πŸŒΏπŸ¦ πŸž Polishing the odd leaf. 🌿 Yet. To me, this is not plant maintenance, this is plant growing Joy! πŸ₯³πŸ πŸŒΏπŸ₯³

There is a lot of joy one can get from caring for 🏠🌿 plants and when considering which new plant friend to get I am always honest with myself, as a human being and as a plant lover. “Will I give this particular foliage the required attention?” Or “Will I be able to manage this gorgeous baby Monstera when it’s grown into a tropical beast monster? πŸ˜‚πŸ πŸŒΏ 

A few things I consider before adopting plant friends. πŸ₯³πŸ πŸŒΏ Time, space and light. How much have I got? 

Thank you for joining me. πŸ˜ŽπŸ πŸŒΏπŸ’ž
