Plantgasm: My Love for Plants

"Love a person who loves plants. He is dedicated, motivated, caring and patient."- Octavo, 2016 :)

I am recently obsessed with collecting indoor plants or what they call as "succulent plants". According to Cassidy of succulentsandsunshine.com, "Succulents are a group of plants that store water in their leaves. The leaves tend to be thick and fleshy, but some genus and species have thicker leaves than others. Succulents tend to thrive in dry climates and don’t like a lot of humidity. As with any other plant, proper watering will ensure the best growth and flowering. While they do need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought, relying on the stored water and nutrients in their leaves. If their roots are sitting in water for too long they will start to rot and die." Basically, these plants are easy to take care of and intended for home. :) 

Plantgasm runs in our blood. My mother and sister used to manage a garden in our backyard. But since we had house renovation, we only have few plants left. But that doesn't stop our love for plants. I am now continuing the legacy our family has started (HAHA), the only difference is that I fall inlove with indoor plants.

Everyone, here are my baby plants. :)

Yes. This photo is taken inside my room. Hehe. My room turned into a mini garden. :)


Wanna know them better? :)


1. Sansevieria Bacularis

According to a study, “The air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside.” That's why it's better to use humidifier in our room once in a while. If you don't have humidifier yet, why not try sansevieria bacularis plant for it is an ideal air purifier? :)


2. Haworthia fasciata (Zebra cactus/ Pearl plant/ Star Window plant)

These succulent plants are commonly compared to Aloe. Yes. It looks like aloe. Haha.



3. Money Plant

From its name "money", it is believed to bring fortune, happiness, good luck and wealth to the owner. This looks so cute in person, like a small tree. :)

Say hello to my newest indoor plant caretaker,  Mr. dwarf. :)


Taking care of Indoor Plants (From WikiHow):

1. Keep potting soil moist, but not wet.
2. Stick your finger in the soil to determine how wet it is below the surface.
3. Use water that is at room temperature.
4. Select a pot that has good drainage.
5. Select an area in your house that gets adequate sunlight.
6. Don’t move your plants around a lot.
7. Purchase and use a small room humidifier.
8. Regularly prune your plant.
9. Do not tip tea or coffee into your houseplant.
10. Choose a plant that's easy to care for.

I bought these babies from Lino Rom Collection. :)

What made me more obsessed with indoor plants is how decorative and stylish these may look in your room. You can make your own arrangement, needing your creativity. What a stress reliever! At the same time, it challenges you to take care of them. That's DEDICATION! :)
