Please give me your house plant tips. What should I buy? How should I look after them? I’ve always been really bad at looking after plants but I’m trying to change that. Currently got a few dotted around the place and I’ve decided I really like them (fuck you @Epimer) and want more.
We have an our of control aloe vera plant we need to re-pot into other pots; the best way to do this is literally break it up and re-plant, right?
If you’re not great at it, start with some succulents maybe? Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) are relatively easy, but require that little more care than the average cactus. And they flower soon too and can look pretty nice.
Mother in law tongue (Vipers Bowstring hemp - to use it’s less sexist name) is also hardy as fuck but looks like more than just another cactus.
I thought of a great app that I don’t think exists. Basically its where you pay for someone to come and tend to your plants. Kind of like a cleaner but they just come in every week and sort the plants out.
I think this is a great idea and millennials would be so into it.
cut the brown stick off close to the bottom and then a new one shoot will start to grow. If you have one with a cane to support its growth, then guide it up the cane using twist-ties to loosely guide it and you’ll soon end up with a mega orchid again.
