This weekend I lost my giant hen and chicks as well as my Sempervivum Pixies to fungus gnat larvae infestation 😢 it had spread to my lovely little Jade tree so I took it outside and carefully shook out the roots and put it in new soil. As soon as I got it inside it was swarming with gnats! I looked at the soil, which I left outside, and it looked like it was alive. I found a water and peroxide remedy and quickly treated the soil inside to kill larvae, and disposed of all my soil. I need to find a safe source for soil, as I have lost too many plants to Home Depot wet soil!! Other transplanting plans are on hold for now. . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #fungusgnats #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 wonder if I’m the only one who is fascinated by the crazy growth pattern of their Monstera and stares at the stems! My plant grows so fast it needs to create elbow-like angles to strengthen the long stems. It’s such a miracle of nature! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #monsteradeliciosa #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 haven’t shown my Dracaena Warneckii in a long time, probably since I transplanted it last year. I look at it every day, and it’s a very slow grower, so maybe I’ve failed to notice how much it’s grown and how healthy the new growth is. They like to be root-bound, and then repotted, and its original pot was a beautiful hand thrown porcelain pot I had to break to get it out. Now it’s in a sensible pot! Did you know that water with fluoride can kill them? Happy Saturday! . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #dracaenawarneckii #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 so admire the frilly, curly jungle like qualities of my Bird Nest Fern! I was petrified when it dropped four bottom leaves recently, but saw so many posts saying the same thing, I felt reassured! Now it’s back to its original glory! I’m proud of myself for doing well with this fern, as it is so different from all my other plants! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #birdnestfern #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 Philodendron Hope plants are so fantastic! They are the most elegant big plants I can think of, and mine seem to grow new leaves year round. Now, though, they’re both producing multiple leaves at one time! Happy Philodendron Friday! . . #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
Sad, sad, sad! My wonderful giant hen and chick is so badly infested with fungus gnats I’ve had to relinquish it to the back steps of the house. It’s starting to shrivel, and now that I see it in the light of day I can see how bad the infestation is. The soil is a moving sea of shiny bugs. I have to believe it’s from the soil from Home Depot. This is not the first time this has happened. I’m hoping some of the chicks survive, but I can’t stand the worry of having it inside anymore. It’s literally shriveling before my eyes 😢! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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 little tomatoes are growing!! I can't wait to eat these in a month or two 🍅🍅🍅. Growing stuff is just the best 😊. #plantlife #growyourownfood #plantsaregoodforthesoul
I look at this little propagation pot everyday with some degree of amazement. Every leaf has taken root and started a new plant! The last one just sprouted a couple of weeks ago. I wondered about transplanting, but now see I can let them stay together to start a whole new plant. I can’t wait to start a new pot of leaves! Happy Wednesday! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
Woke up to these new lovelies. "Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul." #succulents #plantsaregoodforthesoul
From my friends garden. Brought to the U.S. over 20 years ago from an old family garden in Holland, she has hens and chicks spread along the rock wall surrounding her vegetable garden. So exquisite! She said they’ve probably been in her family for at least one hundred years!

I have a tendency to think serious things are very amusing at first, but I have to show this one. Mr. Philo Selloum had a couple of visitors last night. I killed them, or at least uprooted and threw them into the backyard already. The soil is moist, and there were some dead mushrooms when he arrived, but certainly the last thing I expected to see this morning. Well, hope you have an interesting Saturday! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
Amazing Living Wall! #plantsaregoodforthesoul #lalaland
My prolific peanut cactus. I love the symmetry of the not so painful needles of this little beauty. The new growth starts out looking like its hardly attached, then seems to grow into new branches. It is a fast grower. Happy thorny Thursday! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
Have you ever wondered what coffee flowers look like? #plantnerd #coffeeplant #coffeeislife
I really did freak out when this wonderful Philo Selloum was dropped off yesterday. Once I made the decision to cut off the unhealthy leaves I was fine. I knew what to do! I wonder why I let myself get all helpless and stuff? I have loved this plant since my friend bought it. I was actually jealous! Now I share in its revival! I placed the giant leaves in glass bottles next to the pot and it looks lovely! Now, I get to watch it grow!

Still obsessed with the sweet chestnut tree, that contrast of sun and shade on such a scale Wish I had the space to plant such a big tree...#tinygarden #citygarden #horticulture #plantsmakepeoplehappy , #plantsaregoodforthesoul
Blunt Pots of today. Had a friend want something fun for her potted flowers and this is a beautiful touch of detail to really bring out the colors. This is a set of 4 themed the way she liked, but all pots can be made with endless ideas. Hand painted, art done by hand and all pots an be custom done with plants or without in 4 sizes. All are unique and one will never be the same as another. Words hand painted. If you are interested, let me know! (I can also use your existing pots and get them a bit of a make over 😉) DM for more info. #bluntpots #shabbychic #customorders #bluntfarm #wearefunhavers #art #artistsoninstagram #pots #gardenersofinstagram #plants #pottedplants #creativegardening #messageme #plantsaregoodforthesoul #canship #chic #gardenart #gardenchic #gardening #plants #flowers
My pothos is venturing into dangerous territory, but it looks so beautiful! Everything is growing like mad now that the weather is getting warm. Soon I’ll be hanging several plants to make room for a few more babies (lol)!

I always spend about 15 min with my plants before I head out the door for work. I turn the pots in order for the plants to get sun equally on all sides, spot check the soil and mist a few. This morning my #crownofthorns surprised me with new growth (soon to be blooms). I guess it enjoyed the fertilizer I gave it over the weekend. #plantsofinstagram #plantcare #plantlover #plantsaregoodforthesoul #plantroutine
When I got this little cactus from a big box store half was suffering from root rot and the rest was withering. I’m so happy to see bright green growth springing from the now happy little guy!

I love this little cluster of hens and chicks! It came to me by mistake in an order so I’m not sure exactly what it is...doesn’t look like my pixies. It’s growing like crazy all of a sudden. I’m hoping it will grow over the edges of the pot and take on a life if it’s own!

I had a real meltdown last night because I couldn’t find space for my snap decision purchase of this absolutely beautiful, stunning, variegated Philodendron! But what else could I do? I have two Pothos that need hanging, and that will solve the problem. But trying to deal with where to put what had me in tears! This morning I woke up thankful! This is my temporary new landscape. . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
Rainy Wednesdays are for SCORING after driving to three different nurseries looking for houseplants. I found this incredible Philodendron Brazil with the most beautiful variegation I’ve ever seen! It wasn’t on my list, and I don’t have room for it, but I couldn’t be happier!! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
On this kinda lazy, rainy Saturday I got myself to get laundry in the machine and finally get my (not so) new plants into pots. They are all new to me, so I’m excited to learn what they need. I just hope I don’t kill that adorable little Portulaca Molokiniensis!! . . #goodforthesoul #plantsmakepeoplehappy #innerpeace #houseplantsmakemehappy #exoticplants #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
Spring has finally arrived, or taken bloom in my neighborhood! The cold temperatures gave me the chance to see every subtle change, from the slight red of the buds to the green glow of leaf buds. Now, this fantastic explosion of color everywhere I look. It’s so outstanding and heartening to see!

My indoor plant collection is beginning to grow, I’m impressed that I have managed to keep them alive #asplashofcolour #plantlover #plantsaregoodforthesoul #startingtogetintogardening
PLACE YOUR BETS NOW... HOW LONG WILL THIS LITTLE SUCCULENT LAST??🌵👩‍💻🖇💦 #aweekwithme #officegoals #deskdecor #succulent #succulicious #smallbutmighty #plantsaregoodforthesoul Xx
I rescued these leaves from a friends dying Monstera. He was overly enthusiastic when he bought a magnificent plant, and just didn’t understand the need for devotion and love needed to make the plant thrive. I plucked the three healthiest leaves from the planter and hope I can get them to root!

I love all the different greens of my plants. The joy of seeing my plants thrive through this winter has been incredible. I can’t wait to see what happens when the windows are open and fresh spring air fills the house!
