I went a little houseplant crazy at the grocery store, and I am more than willing to share what I got. For a second I wondered where I’d put all of these little guys, but then realized my house has become, more or less, a never-ending house plant shuffle. So, if you need a few indoor gardening ideas, I think I might have a few. Plus a few mistakes I’ve learned from. between a once water-logged Fiddle Leaf Fig (now thriving) and a String of Pearls succulent that was very green but also strangely stagnant, and just needed a new home—I’ve learned movement, growth and change don’t apply just to me, but to a home itself. Pretty Feng Shui of me, huh? But really, can’t let the dust settle for too long. Plus I’ve been secretly waiting to buy this bamboo shelf. I just need enough plants around to justify it. I bought something similar and it was surprisingly easy to put together, so my domestic confidence is definitely growing.

Varieties! I’ve been hanging on to the plant tags around here just so I can share the needs of these plants in case you feel inspired to pick one up and it doesn’t come with directions, I got ‘em. Also, in terms of fertilizer, I use fertilizer spikes. They’re super convenient, release as you water them, and designed specifically for indoor plants

I also shuffled my new ivy into my favorite planter. I desperately want to replace this guy or at least get him a little camel friend. If you come across one please let me know.
