About a year ago I took over the responsibility of the house gardener. Sarah and our plants really weren't getting along and the relationship was a strain on everyone (especially the plants.) I began watering the plants weekly and rotating them around the house to make sure they got enough light.
I stumbled across a blog where I learned how to grow my own succulents, all I needed to do was pluck off a leaf or cut off a branch and the both parts would keep on growing! Imagine Sarah’s face when she saw me plucking off leaves and cutting off branches! To her (and my) surprise, in a week or so, my new little plants started growing leaves and roots of their own!
I also grow air plants, which are very different but equally easy to care for. Air plants are unique because they do not need dirt to flourish. Natural growing air plants attach themselves to an object and get their nutrients from the air and rain water. They may grow roots but the roots only secure them in place and do not gather water like a traditional plant.
I occasionally put some of my plants in Pastiche at Main to sell and I also will custom make you a plant/box if you are interested :)
