After carefully inspecting my collection, with building paranoia, I found mealy bugs on all of these cactus. Today is day one of fourteen of Neem Oil treatment. I have to admit I’m a little freaked out, and a little afraid I’ve overlooked some, but I photographed all plants and zoomed in and inspected carefully. I’ll have to order more oil to complete the two week treatment. I found one heavily infested cactus and disposed it, as it was corky and nearly dead. Wish me luck! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #mealybugs #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
Need a no fuss plant to bring life and colour to your home? Here she is .... the prettiest peperomia. She’ll grow to about 30cm so you’ll have no trouble finding a little spot to put her #peperomia #houseplants #growsomethinggreen #plantobsessed #indoorplants #plantsaregoodforthesoul #greenyourhome #florallovecobram
I found this orchid a couple years ago on a sad dusty clearance shelf in a sad vase with no blooms. Half of me didn't think it would make it but I brought it home. With zero knowledge on orchids, somehow I kept it alive. It was so exciting to find out what color blooms it would have and now it blooms for me twice a year and has continued to sprout new and multiple stems. Not sure why but I feel happy and calm when I see it in bloom. #plantsaregoodforthesoul #orchids
Both of my Philodendrons need to be repotted and the big one in the back needs to be staked properly. I have everything I need, but I’m uneasy about the undertaking. I have a giant backlog of potting and repotting to do—it’s daunting. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting more plants! My mind is busy trying to figure out how to fill the hole left by my Jades! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #philodendron #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
So I think I’ve given the battle against the mealy bugs my best shot. I’ve spent months with alcohol swabs and isolation, but I believe I’ve lost the battle. I read an article last night about a guy who spent over an hour a day going over each leaf with the swab and alcohol , then bathing his plants, and still they returned. I fear my other plants will become infested, so I’m throwing in the towel. I may get a jade bonsai someday, but I think I stick to weird cactus for the moment. I have a big space to fill now. Goodbye Jade collection! Damned mealy bugs! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #mealybugs #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
Okra, Abelmoscus esculentus. Best known as lady's finger, ocra, gombó, quimbombó, quiabo, molondrón, bamia, abelmosco. I used to literally hate this vegetable. I think it was because of its mucilage. My mom will be like, this is good for you and I was like, Nope😂😂😂😂 Well, she was so right!!! #mamaknowsbest . This green pepper like vegetable is packed with amazing nutrients like, soluble and nonsoluble fibre, protein, potassium, manganese Vitamins A, C, K , B1, B2 and B6. Okra is also: Anti inflammatory Antibacterial Antioxidant Helps reduce blood sugar Assist digestion Promotes healthy pregnancy Prevent constipation Boosts immune system . So yes, I am eating more of it lately 😋😋 Do you know Okra, is it part of your diet?? Let me know😄. . . . . #okra #quiabo #powerplant #plants #eatplants #plantsofinstagram #plantpower #cookwitplant #nature #alimentosquecuram #veganfood #mothernaturefood #eatmoreplants #eatmoreplantbased #tastebuds #introducingnewfoods #mydietjourney #plantsaregoodforyou #ladyfinger #plantsofinstagram 🌱 #plantsaregoodforthesoul #vegetarianosdeportugal #vivaumavidacomproposito
Apparently it’s #nationalhouseplantappreciationday , so I had to take a quick pic of these wild pothos plants. I’m become a real #plantnut this past year (or so...). It’s nice having something around that’s all mine, that I can care for, that not only are good for you but make you FEEL good too. My growing collection of houseplants make me happy...🌱💚🌿 #plantsaregoodforyou #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantsmakemehappy #houseplantlove #houseplantsofinstagram #pothos #njoypothos #susiecarranzastudio
After getting up this morning and despairing over my second year battling with Jade quarantines, and actually considering throwing in the towel (I’m still pondering), I took a trip to Ikea with my friend Christine @thenyackhouse and found these wonderful new cacti! Echinopis and Chamaelobivia, surprisingly, are brand new to my collection and have brightened my mood. The Jades are safe for another day! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #cactus #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
Today was B E A U T I F U L . . . Shopped for some new plants (check my story to see what others we added to our collection), made some order deliveries, got outside, ran errands, and got to check out some new stores I’ve been dying to go to! Hope your day was just as fantastic! 🌿 . . . Plant: Compacta Dieffenbachia — also known as the Dumb Cane/Leopard Lily.

Stopped at the big box store to see if they had anything interesting and found, of course, that they have very little plant or cactus inventory for the winter. What I did find was a rack of dying plants—I guess that’s how they get rid of leftovers! I grabbed the remaining Philodendron Brasils, drooping and wilting, and rescued them! They are my nemesis, but better they die with care (I hope not!), than in some nasty store! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #philodendron #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
I didn’t want this to be my last post of last year or my first post of this year, but things don’t always work out as planned! Maybe that will be my resolution, not to fight things like this. So, the mealy bugs are back!! They came back a while ago on one of my smaller Jades, and after isolating it I discovered them on my big Jade. I just spent an hour sitting on the kitchen floor with rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs removing as many as I could find. They’ll stay isolated until I’m sure they’re all clear. I’m so glad they don’t fly!

I love the way my collection has evolved over the last year. Everything is healthy and growing like mad. (I’m probably jinxing myself lol.) I think I had mostly green leafy plants when I first started out, and they’re just in different places unless they’re dead! I’ve certainly learned what I’m good at, and what I’m not. I’m still an adventurer, though! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #cactus #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
The epipremnum aureum was the first plant i got in Belgium🇧🇪 as a gift from my aunt Tinah. It is the easiest plant to take care of and it made my home feel more like being in my hometown immediately. 🍃 I love the colours on the leaves that go from dark green to light green to even silver, yellow and whitish. 🍃 By the way this plant is in the top 10 list of air-purifying plants so next to being pretty also healthy for you to have. 🍃 In Suriname🇸🇷 I saw this plant producing trailing stems as it climbs up trees and take root when they reached the ground and grow along it as you can 👀 in the 2nd📸. 🍃 I get why it can easily be mistaken for a monstera plant, high up in the trees the leaves can get really huge and they also split from the leafs edge. 🍃 The last 📸 shows some cuttings my mom took from the plant in the 2nd picture 🍃 #houseplants #plantsinnature #plantsinSuriname #natureplants #tropicalplants #climbingplants #plantlove #planttherapy #plantlife #iloveplants #houseplantdiary #plantsforlife #plantsplantsplants #plantsofinstagram #indoorplants #plantlover #plants #planten #plantsarefriends #plantsarelife #plantsarecool #plantsaremagic #meandplantsarefriends #plantsaremytherapy #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsareawesome #plantsaremything #plantsareart #plantscience
In these dark December days, I just had to treat myself to a bit of Springtime from @northwalshamgardencentre Well spotted @gallusflocks #daffodils #spring #plantsaregoodforthesoul
My Jades that spent the summer so happily outside and then survived spider mites are all super healthy. The weird thing is they all have become very dense and seem to have become mutants. This one has some leaves that are really big and perfectly round, and tiny heart shaped leaves. All kinds of sizes. It’s funny. I’m easily entertained! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #jade #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
THANK YOU to this lovely bunch for coming along to my last workshop of 2018! It's been such a pleasure to start hosting these workshops to spread the plant love & knowledge. 🌱🌿 I hope everyone who has already attended that your terrariums are flourishing! I'm taking a break until March next year so I can improve on these workshops to make them even better for you. 💝🎄 Reserve you spot for 2019 by following the link in my bio ✌🏻
My heart is breaking! My Kangaroo Fern is suffering terribly. I’m not sure if it’s from being root bound, which has never been a problem, or because it’s getting too much indirect light from the artificial light I brought in for my finicky Philodendron. Ugh! I’m going to take radical measures and attempt to move it to a larger pot, if I can do that without completely killing it. Woe is me! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #kangaroofern #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
If there was the opposite of green thumb that used to be me. 😫🙈 I decided to give it another shot. I started with one plant. 🌱 My game plan was to water the plant as instructed, give them enough sunlight, and talk kindly to my plant everyday. 🌞 I started executing my plan. I even named my plant. 😂 Surprisingly, I was able to nurture Portia (her name lol). ❤️Every month, I would adopt another one. Now, I have 8 plants. I’m so proud to be able to nurture a little boy, a dog, and my plants. I love them all. 💕 If speaking kindly to plants help them grow, Imagine what speaking kindly to humans can do. 🌱💕 #plants #plantlover #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantlife 🌱 #plantbaseddiet #wellness #health #kindness #healthandwealth #mindbodysoul #liverlover #plantsaregoodforthesoul
Picture of my house plant: Diffenbacchia. This plant joined my home a few weeks ago. From the moment that she joined us, I fell in love with her. . I didn't know why, at the time, but I knew when I saw her, that I had to have her. . One of my habits, when anything new comes into my home, is to sit with and learn about their energy. . Whether it is emotionally, through books, people or other sources. . This plant came into my house, when I was in the throws of it. . Lots of things felt choirs, and I was in a space where I was moving into deepening myself, so that changes that are happening in my home, could move through. . When this plant came, I was feeling very raw and vulnerable. . Being in her presence, before I knew more about her, helped me - energetically - feel more grounded. . When I looked her up, I learned that this kind of house plant can be harmful, if ingested. I learned that it's a plant that needs to be out of the reach of small children - which it is (even though I don't have babies anymore) - and away from animals who can accidentally ingest it also. . The interesting thing about this plant, for me, is that she came into my home in a moment in time, where there was so much going on, and coming up for healing, that I had no choice but to become still and silent. . A long time ago, I learned that when I am in the midst of storms, I have to very carefully, become silent and still, because if not what happens is lots of projection. . I can easily take on to the people around me. . This plant came, at a time, when I was working deeply on not becoming harmful to my home,because of what was coming up. . She became me reminder to look within and see what I was putting out. . Having her sitting in my home, with eye distance is a great reminder about how when I'm going through something, I have to be very mindful of what I'm putting out, while I'm processing my internal world. #soulplant #intuitiveliving #intuitivehome #plantsaregoodforthesoul #indoorplants #houseplants #plants
Three words I dread: “Easy to Grow.” Not for me. Not ever. It’s taken many harrowing months to find the right place, the right light (it’s artificial), the will to keep this poor Philodendron alive, or growing, or looking well. Here she is, finally happy! I just don’t do well with some of the simplest things!

Having been inspired by the Orchid collection of @lifewiththedigbys I've taken the plunge and bought my first Orchid. Admittedly it's a cheap one from Morrisons but hopefully I can keep it alive! 🌼🌼 #plantsforhealth #plantsaregoodforthesoul #orchids

I don’t know what’s to become of my peanut cactus. It just keeps growing taller and stranger as the weeks go by. I turn it every day because of that skinny center stalk, but it keeps going! I expected transplanting would allow it to fatten up and spread out, but it just got taller and wider. Yup, proves that cactus are as unpredictable as I thought! That’s why I love them!

I’ve spent the last two weeks really settling in to my little apartment after living here for three years. I guess it was an emotional thing. I feel so happy and relaxed. Ready for Thanksgiving and having my kids home for the holidays. My house finally feels like home. I’m going to keep on getting flowers, they really give me a warm feeling. If I don’t post tomorrow, hope everyone who celebrates has a wonderful Thanksgiving!! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #sansevieriacylindrica #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
It’s so great to see bright green growth rising up from my Opuntia subulata cristata. When I picked her up she was wrinkly and dark green. A little love and care went a long way in a very short period of time! I needed some success this Monday morning after going to war with mealy bugs all last week! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #evesneedle #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery
Current favourite house plant (don’t tell the others). This @pearspring_shop Peperomia was so dinky when I got him and he has flourished, which I find very gratifying.

Ugh! Mealy bugs! After a luxurious summer of growth, good health and recovery from fungus gnats I discovered mealy bugs on my Jades. I just finished spraying them with 70 percent rubbing alcohol, which immediately made the white nests disappear. I’ll check them for the next few days to make sure they’re gone before removing them from isolation.

This variegated Optunia Monacantha made its way into my collection because of its unique shape and colors. Looking at pics of more mature plants they get pretty crazy.

Introducing my new weirdo, the Echinopis “Rose Quartz”. It’s a hybrid between a Peanut Cactus and a Lobivia—should be interesting!

After watching this little guy grow and thrive, and even need to be moved to a larger pot, I recently noticed a strange crack developing in one of the crevices. On closer examination, I found there was rot at the bottom on one side. Slowly my sweet Mammillaria semperviva started kind of shrinking back into the soil. I have been so careful, and he has been doing so well. I can’t explain, except maybe during watering the base of the plant got wet. I do plan on trying again, but this is a sad farewell. For now, onward I go! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #mammilariasempervivi #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantlife #plantlady #plantcollection #succulents #selfexpression #art #botany #vintage #greenthumb #pottery #love #gardening #photooftheday #instagreen #fineart #graphicdesign #design #illustrator #painting #handbuilt #plantstrong #cactus #supporthandmade #handmadepottery

My poor leggy Jade. Last night I bought my Jades inside because of severe thunderstorms, but I left this guy outside because the soil was soaking wet. I woke to bright sunshine and rushed to get the others outside and found the leggy pot full of water. I picked it up and found a sticker covering the drain hole.
