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.
*Note: some of the leaves here are for decorative purposes only. 🙂
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.
