Is it me or has everyone been into home plants lately? It’s totally easy to understand why –聽in this time when the world seems to be in constant chaos and we can’t seem to get a break from the horrible news stories flooding our screens one after the other. Bringing parts of nature into our homes and caring for them can be a therapeutic activity and can help you destress. Not to mention that they clean the air and are just a joy to look at! Once you start collecting house plants, you will find more and more reasons聽to grow your green oasis.

Some facts about my collection聽+ how you can start and care for your own:

– Right now I have about 20 plants in varying sizes – from 2-inch cacti to 3’7″ snake plant (5’4″ with the planter).

– Snake plants, zz plants and madagascar dragon trees are the easiest to care for in my experience – but I haven’t had any big scares that usually keep people out of caring for plants.

– I’ve built my collection naturally over the years – receiving plants from friends as gifts and rescuing some from my neighbors. I’ve also bought plants before (check out your local nursery) and divided my existing plants.

– I normally water them only when the soil gets dry-ish, about once a week to 2 weeks. I also prune any dead leaves at that time. It’s a very therapeutic activity.

– I want to grow my collection even more and get a palm one day! Can anyone recommend a palm they had a good experience with keeping?

Do you have a plant collection? How big is it? Post it in your stories and tag me, I would love to get some inspiration from your Gems!
