When we were first married, and my children were small, I used all faux plants. Ivy's, and ficus trees mostly. In the last few years though, I've begun to buy real plants and I love having them in my home!
I'm currently growing a small ficus tree (which needs a bigger pot) and I'm growing a two pathos, a fern that is not wintering well. It looks like it belongs in Miss Havisham's house currently. I've moved it to more light and am endeavoring to give it enough water without over watering. Can you over water a fern?
I have a snake plant, but I think that while I am caring for it, it belongs to one of the girls. I also have a lovely ivy, that is thriving in the kitchen.
One of my pathos is the star of the living room.
I moved her yesterday from between the tv cabinet and the china hutch. She liked it there, and got a lot of light. Where she is now is closer to the window but off to the side of it, so we'll see if she does well there.
I moved some things around yesterday, and I like her here by the front door.
Today I need to water plants, which is why I thought we could have a chat about them. Do you have real plants in your home? Do you have any advice about my fern? I'd be grateful to hear it.
