People in Recovery and Plants!

I Love Nature…

All things nature… she is my higher power and I have filled my home with as much of her during the last 17 months as possible. Nurturing house plants has become part of my daily recovery routine. I didn’t know it until after I had started but it’s a “thing”.

Do you love house plants???

Big plant fan!! My orchids have had a great season. Not sure I can keep them going thru a North Carolina winter, but we will see! Hoping the succulents make it as well. I know it will be tough for the tillandsias too.

Rooting in water is fantastic! You can try that with your corn plant as well! Edited to add…it may help it bush out a bit as well if it gets a trim of that top. :smile:

Ugh I love rooting in water…

So this is my ponytail palm… I have had it for 20+ years, I bought it when I was in active addiction on meth. ( not sure how it survived) . Anyways he has been going crazy with new growth!!! First he sprouted this new little gem… and then today as I was cleaning him up I noticed all these little buds at the bottom!!!

The last one you posted. In Florida we could just trim them and stuff it in the ground and they would grow. Non tropical locations, not so much. :slightly_smiling_face:
