Hey happy BB green thumbs! affirmations help lol!
Indoor plants can be temperamental, when you think about it, it's a constructed situation they're in.
So just like any place in the garden, there are different micro climates in diff't rooms of our homes, difft light, moisture, everything.
I move my little pink succulent often. It's delicate. Half way between sturdy (which is what I have to have in an indoor plant) and sensitive. Luckily it SHOWS me pretty quickly when it's unhappy. I just Pray I'm reacting to it correctly lol! IE MOVING it out of a windy spot, more water, more dappled sunlight - whatever.
Yes Shelll, I DO have a hanging plant - maybe it's a HOYA? Dangling over my toaster lol! Now I've seen Katy's post about her hoyas, mine would probably prefer the bathroom lol. Don't have any hanging hooks in there tho
:-( It's doing ok!
Yes there's an app you can buy, Alexa has one. It IDs plants pretty well!
Hey Paws, yes a beautiful idea. I call those CHOOK TRACTORS but alas they were $450 each and I needed 3! Then to put them together. Grrrr. Plus can't drive far from home, just a thing atm.
We ordered a freaking beast of a thing lol 6m x 3m x 2m high.
My Handyman is at the ready to help put it together asap when the 3 boxes arrive.
I plan on having a veritable WONDERLAND in there for my girls. Using mostly what I have already. A sand bath in an old toddler pool. 2 small veg beds with their clucker tucker plants shielded with wire so they can peck through. Roosting boxes. High perches. A fallow gated area to wander in only when I'm gardening all day.
My bday present to myself was $300 worth of Chook waterer and feeder, Clucker tucker seeds & a few Asian hand tools to garden with. Changing plans all the time here in my garden, but my priority is to keep all living animals safe.
Hey Katy, air plants are great. I have an aversion to them due to the damage to my trees but kept inside is AWESOME lol. Your hoyas seem to love living with you? any special hints or tips?
Sanseveria can be fussy. They don't like too much water, in fact we only water if the soil is bone dry.
With ANY plants, meditating on WHERE they came from, feeling the climate, soil, environment they originated from... then intuiting WHERE in your home or garden can best mimic their "home" is my best, probably my ONLY advice lol.
When I DO do that, I have more success.
When I don't, well I don't.
SO MUCH experimentation in gardening.
WE ARE LEARNING!
