My Plant Propagation Station

These days I find myself having the most wonderful time tending to my gardens. Yes, me. The one who used to kill cacti regularly. Yes, the self-confessed plant-killer now has several pocket gardens around and inside her home. Imagine that!

So one of my most favorite things to do recently is propagating my plants. I’ve set up a propagation station in the living room and I’m happy to report that my plants are thriving well.

Here are a few photos I took last weekend. Aren’t the greens pretty?

This Monstera Obliqua is easy to propagate. Just cut beneath a leaf node and put the cutting in water. Leave it alone for a couple of weeks in a shaded area. Then when you see the tiny roots, you can plant it in the soil.

See this cute little pair of scissors? I was looking around for this for the longest time but couldn’t find anything similar. So when I saw this pair in a cute little shop in Rome last year, I didn’t think twice about buying it.

You must be wondering to yourself how long I can keep this up. Well, to be honest, me too! Haha. Wish me luck!

Food for Thought:

Until you dig a hole, you plant a tree, you water it and make it survive, you haven’t done a thing. You are just talking.

  1. Hello! Ang ganda ng dahon! Naamaze ako sa butas butas niya. Anyway, maganda din talaga ang maglagay ng halaman sa loob ng bahay, nakakarelax. Pangtanggal din ng stress. 🙂
