hello weekend: how to not kill house plants

Foggydress_plantsRemember what this ^^ guy used to look like? I’m depressed! Why do I kill plants! Well after watching the video below, I realized… I’m doing many things to kill my plants. I know a lot of people don’t like plants in the house because they always die, and/or are a hassle to take care of, but I need that luscious greenery to feel at home. Around the house I have about 7 potted plants, and about half of them are suffering due to my over watering them! I guess I didn’t research enough about each of the plants, or I thought “this type of plants needs lots of sunlight” when it actually needed shade, and vice versa. Do you have any success with your house plants? What’s your secret?

I learned a lot from this video, but here are a few tips that I think are particularly interesting:
  • Sing, talk, or play classical music to your plants
  • Use leftover water from cooking your veggies or water from your fish tank

I had heard that classical music was good for plants, but never really tried it. I am now blasting cello music for my plants enjoyment (I’m a huge cello fan). And I’ll be saving that veggie water since we no longer have a fish tank.

I really shouldn’t be killing these house plants since we have such mild, gorgeous California weather. I’ll heading to the nearest nursery to buy some plant food asap. Have a great weekend filled with living, flourishing plants!

PS – How to choose indoor house plants and a pretty succulent art project that I will eventually get around to doing because you know I’ve always wanted one
