A little plant crazy!

Namaste and Happy Monday!

My Mother’s plant gene that I never thought I acquired, has unexpectedly ‘turned on’ in me. I dedicate this post to my Mother 🙂 Amma, all those years I just didn’t understand it, I am sorry. I certainly get it now. ❤

What is it that I like…no, love? The beauty in each leaf, look at how intricate and beautiful the designs are. If you can touch it, the texture of each plant is also different. Need I mention the shapes and colours? As you will see below each one is unique and different, just like each and every one of us! When I water them/mist them, seeing them grow and thrive makes me happy.

I gush about all my plant babies…except for the last picture of my sad fern plant I …ahem….

Prayer plant, also known as Maranta. The dried half leaf was there when I purchased it, decided against cutting it off.

Just misted – Monstera and Angel’s Trumpet (from my Mom) sharing the same vase. Look at the roots below!

Finally, my sad sad fern. I bought this a little under a year ago when I first moved to Vancouver. I was so happy to own one…then I left town for two weeks. It went dry and that’s when it all started going downhill. I left it out in the rain recently, but the temperature dropped and the green leaves turned brown. I am going to try my best to save it…I think it can be saved? Here’s how it looked before…..don’t laugh.
