In Love With Succulents.

Throughout my life i have been surrounded with plants. From my grandmothers garden to our window sill, there has always been flowers and green shrubs and god knows what. However it turned out that I’m allergic to pollen and i react to strongly scented flowers so I couldn’t really fill my own window sills with fragrant and beautiful plants.

In addition to that, I have three cats who love to chew on things so the few flowers i did try out got eaten. That was when i thought that “Hm, maybe i should go for something green that doesn’t look appetizing?” So I went to the local flower shop, saw the succulents there and instantly fell in love.

Whenever they take in a new type of succulent, i will be there to purchase it and it is honestly becoming a problem at this point because I’m running out of space. Succulents are kind of like Cacti, you don’t need to water them that often. At the flower shop they said that it is more common for it to die from being watered too often than for it to die of dehydration. One would also have to keep in mind to not pour water directly onto it because the stem will rot if you soak it in water. So just making sure the soil is moist is enough to keep it alive. It wouldn’t hurt it to be dry for a little while either, you can squeeze gently on its petals to see if it needs water or not. If it’s kinda hard it has enough, if it is starting to soften then you should probably give it some more water.

This one on the bottom was the first i ever purchased and oh boy has it grown! It used to be in the small pot on the first picture but it has quickly outgrown everything i owned so i had to purchase a fancy basket for it instead. But nothing will stop me from caring about my plant babies!

Do you have any kind of plants you just have to have in your home?Β

    I love succulents but I manage to kill them. It’s because our condo doesn’t get enough sunlight! I envy you!

    Beautiful! You must have a good green thumb because I tried to grow these indoors and they didn’t make it even with partial sunlight 😦 on the other hand they do ok on my porch but just outside. I have a christmas cactus indoors and it’s ok so far…love having plants inside, if only they would survive!

    […] of would have been like cheating. I have more than three succulents, and I made a post about them here, but one of them is sick so it doesn’t look very pretty right now. It’s crazy how much […]
